    FFR 111: The Witcher

    FFR 111: The Witcher

    This week we journey through the brutal landscape of The Witcher. Probably best known through CD Projekt Red’s video game series, the Netflix adaptation has met with mixed reviews. Join us as we take a look at ways in which fantasy and Patriarchal tropes are presented, reinforced, acknowledged and questioned in a self-aware story that may not be sure on which side it lands. Should you toss a coin to your witcher?

    FFR 110: The Mandalorian - Season One

    We’re back in the Star Wars Universe! In episode 105 of FFR, we wondered after three episodes where all the women were in The Mandalorian. Now that season one is finished, we’re revisiting the spaghetti space western with special guest Jonathan Mann, to jam out to his viral song “Baby Yoda Baby Baby Yoda,” talk about Star Wars deep-lore and our own fan theories for next season, and to weigh in on the representations of women The Mandalorian ultimately offered.

    FFR 108: Fave Five of the Decade

    FFR 108: Fave Five of the Decade

    It’s the end of the decade! And though it was a tough task, we’ve narrowed down all the media from the last 10 years to our fave five in literature, film, music, television and gaming. Stroll with us down memory lane as we revisit the titles that made us reflect, made us feel, and maybe even moved the needle on what media has to say about the world around us.

    Ho Ho Ho, and Happy Holidays! This week we present the Feminist Frequency x Bechdel Cast Christmas Crossover episode. Jamie Loftus and Caitlin Durante join Anita to discuss the Disney+ movie Noelle, starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader. Is this film an empowering #girlboss take on the holiday film genre? Well, maybe from the perspective of a “woke dad”. Listen in to hear our real thoughts on rule by divine monarchy, holiday puns, and at least 3 things this movie gets right.

    FFR 106: The Long Kiss Goodnight

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! So join us as we take a stroll down amnesia lane with the 1996 Christmas-set action flick The Long Kiss Goodnight starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson. The film is experiencing something of a critical renaissance of late. Find out what we think of it as we discuss how Samantha Caine fits into the pantheon of female action heroes, the movie’s overall stance on gender politics, and the better movie Ebony sees under the surface of the one we got.

Seriously informative and thought provoking content.

I’d first of all like to take a moment to say that Caroline, you are the best ever. Secondly, I love you three, and thanks for discussing content in this frank and wildly necessary manner.

A Vital Podcast

You can play it safe with other podcasts but if you want a show that challenges you, a show that is a complex and intimate take on gender equality vs. pop culture that’s also full of honesty and smart snarky humor you can’t get any better than this. Do yourself a favor and tune in.

Amazing

This is such an informative but also fun podcast. The women are so real and refreshing! Plus their views, though extreme, are always fair. I’ll be a listener for life!
