Too often, women are thought of as a monolithic bloc, and they were often discussed that way throughout the 2016 election. But women are in fact divided on major issues. Liz Plank (a progressive) and Hitha Herzog (a conservative) are friends who get along, but don't always agree. Together, they cover the complicated, multifaceted, intersectional debates that make up the life of the modern American woman. Produced by the Vox Media Podcast Network.

All the way ok

I feel like they don’t go in depth enough with any topic; just giving very high level disagreement on some topics but not going anywhere new.

Also, their most recent episode about infidelity was not complete. It cut off in the middle of an interview. I happened to find it the most interesting episode to date, so that was disappointing.

SESTA is a killer ,

Pass

The conversation is superficial and lacks nuance or introspection

Great!

I have a hard time reading the low scores posted for this podcast. I found the women to be insightful despite me not agreeing with *everything* they said. It opened a door for me to learn and listen to a perspective outside of my own (something most of America needs to do!). I introduced the podcast to my boyfriend, and we listened to a few episodes together. He too found it insightful and we had some very evolving conversations. I would recommend to all people, even those who don’t call themselves feminist or liberal, it’s two intelligent women, intelligently laying out their perspective on our society.
