    Bonus episode - This Is How You Do It: Naomi Larsson Piñeda

    Warning: Some strong language
    Media Storm hosts Mathilda and Helena meet their mainstream media matches! In this crossover bonus series with The Guilty Feminist, they interview journalists trying to make an imperfect industry a little bit less so, about their noble goals and - you guessed it - the hypocrisies and insecurities that undermine them! Brought to you by The Guilty Feminist, every other Thursday.
    Our first guest is Naomi Larsson Piñeda, award-winning journalist and editor at gal-dem, Forbes 30 Under 30 alumna, and musician-by-night (@naomilars / @naomiinblue). Naomi speaks about reporting on Chile's social uprising, ongoing gender inequality in the music industry, and second jobs.

My New Obsession

This podcast is at once hilarious, heartwarming, thought-provoking, and inspiring. It is the highlight of my week—every week. Flame.

Deborah, thank you for your valuable insight on such a complex topic. Thank you for not only challenging me to grow but also for providing me with the tools and confidence to do so!

Middle aged women

Just listened to the most recent episode about women of a certain age not being represented in media. I think it’s because once we reach middle age men, and society, don’t see us as women. We’ve lost of ability to have children, have sag in parts of our bodies, have bodies scarred by birth.

Ellerina ,

Should be required listening

I’ve been listening to the Guilty Feminist since the beginning. It has opened my eyes in so many ways and emboldened me to really embrace the word Feminist. Thank you Deborah and all the amazing cohosts and guests for sharing your wisdom, your humor, your struggles, and your heart. Keep fighting.
