    FFR 126: Entertainment News II - The Reckoning

    Anita, Ebony and Carolyn are back with another Entertainment News roundup. What’s up for discussion today? The Snyder Cut of Justice League is coming (yikes)! E3 is cancelled, but do we even need it anymore? And Joe Biden is taking the black vote for granted. Commiserate with us as we wade through the mostly bad (and somewhat absurd) of recent news, with at least one bit of good news for fans of a particular cancelled Netflix favorite.

    FFR 125: Little America

    FFR 125: Little America

    This week on the podcast we are delighted to think critically about the Apple TV+ series Little America. The anthology, from makers of The Big Sick and Master of None, puts the immigrant experience at the center of its plot. Currently available to view without a subscription and already renewed for a second season, this series presents stand-alone episodes observing the story and life of an individual immigrant living in the United States. Join us as we take a look at several episodes, from the tale of a young boy left to run the family motel when his parents are deported, or a Nigerian college student in Oklahoma who loves American cowboy culture, to a Syrian refugee seeking asylum in the US so that he can live openly as a gay man, and explore how successfully Little America presents their stories.

    FFR 124: The Half of It

    On this episode of Feminist Frequency Radio we take a look at The Half of It, the second film from Saving Face director Alice Wu. Available for streaming on Netflix, the film is a take on the classic-literature-as-teen-movie genre, reimagining Cyrano de Bergerac as wry, bookish teenager Ellie Chu, who reluctantly agrees to help charming but dim-witted Paul woo the girl that Ellie herself has a crush on. Join us as we examine how this film subverts expectations of the genre, telling a surprisingly multi-faceted story of teen angst.

    FFR 123: Josie and the Pussycats with Special Guest Caitlin Durante

    Caitlin Durante—writer, comedian, co-host of The Bechdel Cast, Josie and the Pussycats enthusiast, and very special guest of Feminist Frequency Radio—returns to discuss the 2001 cult classic film with Anita and Carolyn. Can she convince us of its “borderline flawless” status, or, upon closer inspection, does this movie only manage to reinforce the out-of-control corporate commercialism it aims to critique?

Feminism Friends

I don’t listen to every single episode but I love this pod. I love all the different opinions shared. It’s funny informative and fun. It’s wonderful outlet for women like me who don’t know a lot of feminists in person and is sometimes afraid to share their thoughts about feminism. Thank you ladies.

Kinda reductive?

Nothing against these women, but their podcast is kinda reductive, it’s like how Pod Save America is with politics. Carolyn and Anita especially have a hard time viewing different mediums outside of their own narrow mindsets. While I do enjoy a lot of the discussion, their two viewpoints are why I forget to tune into this show. Ebony is the only person who seems to have any nuance, especially when the subject of discussion involves POC. I think she tends to have the most thoughtful examination of subjects and I always enjoy hearing what she has to say. I myself am a feminist, and no I don’t think these women hate men or anything, but sometimes I just think tear things down because they don’t understand it because frankly it wasn’t made for them. If they started understanding and approaching subjects through different lenses I think it would help.

The Worst Kind of Feminism

It’s that kind that demonizes men and masculinity. Be prepared to hear “straight white male” said in that way that you know is accompanied by eye rolls and an annoyed affectation.
