    FH S3E2: Feminism and Sobriety - Part II with Nina Sarhan

    CW: sexual assault 

    There is a tremendous amount of tension in the conversation about alcohol and sexual assault; Nina Sarhan is here to help us name it AND address it. As someone who claims both the labels alcoholic and rape survivor, Nina is using her voice to help banish the shame and stigma so many people associate with addiction and sexual trauma through her online platform @thesobrfeminist. Hear Nina’s story, and learn how getting angry and publicly protesting sexual assault and rape culture have been pivotal to her recovery and her identity as a feminist. (Music by Ava Luna, Loyalty Freak Music, Katrina Stone, Rew, Kola, Space Doves, Borrtex, and Josh Leake.)

    FH S3E1: Feminism and Sobriety - Part I with Holly Whitaker

    FH S3E1: Feminism and Sobriety - Part I with Holly Whitaker

    We are kicking off 2020 with a guest I have wanted to interview forever: Holly Whitaker, founder of Tempest Sobriety School and author of the fabulous new book Quit Like a Woman. If you’ve ever questioned your relationship with drinking or you're thinking about making a change for 2020, this episode is a MUST LISTEN.

    Today's topic is particularly personal. This is the first in a three-episode series about feminism and sobriety that I wanted to do, in part, to create some space to talk about my own recovery and to come out as a sober person and what that means as a feminist. (Have questions? Let’s talk!)

    Holly dropped so many mind bombs in this interview, it was almost impossible to edit. We talked about her story, why she tried and then left AA, and the origins of Tempest. We also dug into why our recovery culture needs a feminist overhaul and what it really means to “quit like a woman.” (Music by Ava Luna, Loyalty Freak Music, Katrina Stone, Rew, Space Doves, Borrtex, and Josh Leake.)

    FH S2E15: Road Trippin'

    It’s the last episode of Season 2! I can’t think of a better way to mark 30 episodes of Feminist Hotdog than by talking to Amelia Hruby, podcaster extraordinaire, who is traveling to EVERY STATE in the country to interview gender justice and queer liberation activists for her show, Fifty Feminist States. Learn along with Amelia as she talks about the amazing people she’s met on her recent trip to the Deep South (including Montgomery!), her forthcoming book of feminist mantras, and what’s inspiring a whole choral arrangement of singing in her feminist heart.

    Stay tuned for season 3 coming in January!

    FH S2E14: Feminist High Five

    Sometimes I wish I could go back and meet my 20-year-old self. I’m sure she’d be cool, but there’s no way she’d be as woke, witty, and together as this week’s guest—Leah Abrams! She’s a feminist college student with a mind for policy, history, and grassroots organizing, and she has a lot to say about the way feminism has already positively influenced her life. Listen in as we talk about feminism on campus, unsung climate change heroes, things we’re REALLY good at, two media groundbreakers who belong in the Hotdog Hall of Fame.

    FH S2E13: The Limits to Our Justice

    FH S2E13: The Limits to Our Justice

    If you’re not tuned in to Jana Schmieding and her awesome podcast Woman of Size, you’re missing out. Jana is a comedian, writer, educator, and artist with a talent for getting to the heart of why we need to expand our vision of justice. She is also a Lakota woman who navigates feminism in white and decolonized spaces and has a lot to say about both. We talked about how she uses her platform to advance both Native and fat liberation, dug into the distinctions between body positivity and fat positivity, and celebrated the badassery of Wilma Mankiller. (P.S. Check out her essay in the new YA book The Other F Word!)
