Great podcast

I support this podcast bcs it truly puts womyn born womyn BACK into the center of feminism. Gender is fluid—my wife is butch and I’m femme with an attitude. But BIOLOGY doesn’t budge. Those of us born female—and to my WOC sistahs I know you hear this—have always known that if it doesn’t exist we must create it and we have. I understand that m2f trans folk definitely have it hard. The violence against them is unspeakable. But until they understand womyn’s herstory, they will never understand that just because you want a thing doesn’t mean it’s yours; doesn’t mean you can just take it. THAT behavior IS the typical male, colonizer bs that keeps fueling the patriarchy. We do need to fight in unison. But we name ourselves. We will not be renamed by the trans community. I understand why trans women would want to be in XX womyn only spaces—they’re amazing. I hope through FC the trans women learn why those particular spaces aren’t for them. Indeed if there was an awesome music festival for the Trans community only, I would respect it and understand my place as an ally rather than a member.

Truly Thought Provoking

I've listened to a wide range of feminist and so-called feminist podcasts, and this is truly one of the most original, challenging, and thought provoking ones out there. FC is not for those looking to sit in an echo chamber; it is for those looking to peer into the dark corners with clear eyes, for those looking to challenge themselves with brave intellectual honesty, and most of all, those looking for dangerous feminist intelligence. Radical in the best and most classical of senses. This podcast makes me a better and more thoughtful person.

Great Feminist Podcast

This is one of the best feminist podcasts (and I recommend website too)! Meghan Murphy is a great interviewer, and interviewees address pressing feminist issues of today - prostitution, knowledge of women's bodies, male violence, etc. No third-wave nonsensical babble here! Just straight-up feminist analysis and critique.
