    There’s a Solution to Police Abuse, But It’s Not Defunding Police Departments

    There’s a Solution to Police Abuse, But It’s Not Defunding Police Departments

    The majority of America's police officers are brave men and women who make sacrifices and take risks every day to keep our communities safe, but incidents of misconduct do occur. Defunding America’s police departments would not solve the issue of police abuse, but limiting the power of police unions would allow for needed reforms. 
    Rachel Greszler, a research fellow at The Heritage Foundation, joins “Problematic Women” to discuss her new piece untitled,  “Confronting Police Abuse Requires Shifting Power From Police Unions.” 
    Police unions have made it extremely challenging for police chiefs to fire or adequate reprimand officers for poor behavior or abuse of power. Control of police departments must be taken away from unions and placed back in the hands of the police chiefs who know their communities and officers best. 
    Also on today’s show, we share Rachel del Guidice’s recent conversation with Star Parker, founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education. Parker explains why America is not inherently racist.
    Plus, Katrina Trinko joins us for a timely discussion regarding author J.K. Rowling and her recent tweet that defies political correctness. Enjoy the show!

    Why Conservative Should Be Leading the Civil Rights Movement

    Why Conservative Should Be Leading the Civil Rights Movement

    “Conservatives should be leading the civil rights movement,” says Kay C. James, President of The Heritage Foundation. Conservatives have the solutions to solve much of the racial inequalities and injustices present in America today.
    James joins the podcast to explain that the answers to many of the issues plaguing the African American community, such as poverty, lack of access to good healthcare, and poor education systems, are issues conservatives have the viable solutions for. 
    We also talk with sisters Deana Bass Williams and Dee Dee Bass Wilbon, co-founders of Bass Public Affairs about how America can move forward together after the killing of George Floyd and why prayer is truly our most powerful tool right now. And as always we will crown our Problematic Women of the Week.

    One Woman’s Story of Unwittingly Furthering the Sexual Revolution

    One Woman’s Story of Unwittingly Furthering the Sexual Revolution

    Sue Ellen Browder, author of “Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women's Movement,” was a writer for Cosmopolitan magazine during the sexual revolution. 
    It was not until years later that she realized how the sexual revolution had strategically targeted the women’s movement to alter its message from female empowerment and opportunity to sexual freedom without morality. 
    Browder joins "Problematic Women” to tell her story in her own words. Also, be sure to check out The Daily Signal's recently released documentary telling the inside story of Browder’s work at Cosmo. 
    Plus, interior designer Robin Stroebel joins the show to discuss how occupational-licensing reform would provide job opportunities for more women and cut red tape for small-business owners. And, as always, we will be crowning our Problematic Woman of the Week.

Regular Listener

Although I am old enough to be either host’s father, this podcast is a regular listen for me because of some very interesting interviews the show does. They may not have all of the polish of some more experienced journalists or broadcasters and they may lean a little too heavily sometimes on in-house chats with other Heritage Foundation staffers and experts, but they produce and enjoyable and usually informative program. Hope it continues.

Worst pod ever.

Absolutely tone deaf and full of crap!

Highly recommend

The Problematic Women podcast does a wonderful job staying grounded in conservative values while remaining compassionate and empathetic. The hosts are not afraid to handle controversial topics from a female perspective. I absolutely love listening to the content they create, they’ve helped me stay informed and avoid boredom on many occasions!
