    Here’s What We Can Expect From a Biden Administration

    Joe Biden became the 46th president of the United States Wednesday. Eager to implement his agenda, Biden signed a number of executive orders after he was sworn into office, beginning the process of undoing former President Donald Trump’s legacy. 
    Jessica Anderson, director of Heritage Action for America, joins the show to share her reactions to Biden’s inaugural address, and her insight on what policies we can expect from a Biden administration. Plus, we welcome our colleague Helena Richardson, director of The Heritage Foundation intern program, to the show to discuss an exciting new way for high school and college students to get involved in public policy.  And as always, we’ll be crowning our “problematic woman of the week!”

    How We Can Keep the Faith in America When Everything Is Shaken

    How We Can Keep the Faith in America When Everything Is Shaken

    To say that this is a difficult time in our nation’s history might be something of an understatement.
    For many people, the 2020 election didn’t go as they hoped it would. And now, there is also a tremendous amount of anger and grief over the riot that took place at the Capitol last week. 
    Even though there are calls for unity, we are seeing little done to actually move toward unity as a country.
    How do we press forward and maintain a strong personal faith through the challenges that lay before us? 
    Charmaine Yoest, the vice president of the Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity at The Heritage Foundation, joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to discuss how we can choose to live out our faith and seek unity in America right now. 
    We also welcome our colleague Michelle Cordero, digital content manager for The Heritage Foundation and host of the “Heritage Explains” podcast, to the show to break down the new season of “The Bachelor.”
    And as always, we’ll be crowning our "Problematic Woman of the Week."

    Inside the Grassroots Effort to Win Georgia’s 2 Senate Runoff Races

    Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff appear to have defeated incumbent Republicans Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue, giving the Democrats a majority in the U.S. Senate.
    Georgia’s two runoff elections were required under state law after no candidate received a majority of the votes on Nov. 3.
    Janae Stracke, the grassroots director of Heritage Action for America, the lobbying arm of The Heritage Foundation, has been on the ground in Georgia for weeks to mobilize voters. 
    Stracke joins "The Problematic Women Podcast" to explain what it takes to run a grassroots campaign effort, and what she heard from voters on the ground in Georgia, who are concerned over the direction in which their state appears to be headed. 
    Plus, we break down a surprisingly pro-life Amazon Prime show, and what you may want to add to your watch list in 2021. And as always, we’ll be crowning our "Problematic Woman of the Week."

    This Reporter Spent 2020 Covering Riots. Here’s What She Saw.

    This Reporter Spent 2020 Covering Riots. Here’s What She Saw.

    This year has been strange for all of us, but especially for Shelby Talcott, The Daily Caller’s media reporter and field correspondent. 
    Talcott spent much of 2020 traveling across America to report on the race riots and protests. Today, Talcott joins "Problematic Women" to share what it was like to be in the center of the conflict as businesses were burned and looted, and even her own experience of being arrested at one of the demonstrations. 
    Plus, we discuss the Lifetime Christmas movie “Feliz NaviDAD” with Mario Lopez and why we all love to watch Hallmark and Lifetime movies, despite them being cheesy and predictable. We also crown our “Problematic Women of the Week” and take a moment to recognize that the holidays are a challenging time for many as we remember lost friends and loved ones. 
    And be sure to check out the "Problematic Women" favorite interview of 2020 here.
    Enjoy the show.

    America's Transgender Craze Should Take a Cue From UK

    America's Transgender Craze Should Take a Cue From UK

    The United Kingdom has long been on the progressive end of the transgender issue, so when they pump the brakes, America should pay attention, says Nicole Russell, a contributor to The Daily Signal.
    A high court in the United Kingdom recently ruled that children 16 years old and younger cannot be treated with puberty blocking hormone drugs, unless a court specifically rules otherwise.
    Russell reports extensively on the transgender issue and joins the show to discuss her recent piece breaking down the U.K. court decision. She also explains the media's response to actor Ellen Page, who now wishes to be called Elliot, coming out as transgender, and how the internet plays a big role in encouraging young people to transition.
    Plus, Dr. Kevin Pham, a Visiting Policy Analyst at The Heritage Foundation, joins us to explain how we can safely date during COVID. And as always, we’ll be crowning our Problematic Woman of the Week!

    How 1 Woman Took on the Soviet Union in Afghanistan

    How 1 Woman Took on the Soviet Union in Afghanistan

    Joanne Herring, a longtime political activist and philanthropist, deserves a great deal of credit for helping break the back of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s. 
    Herring, who became politically engaged in the Middle East in the 1970s, saw that the Soviet Union was seeking to take over Afghanistan to ultimately gain control of the Strait of Hormuz, the passage today for one-fifth of the world's crude oil exports.
    Today, Herring joins the show to share how she and the late Rep. Charlie Wilson, D-Texas, worked together to get the Afghan people the resources they needed to defeat the USSR and move America one giant step closer to winning the Cold War. 
    Herring also discusses her philanthropic work in Afghanistan, which she calls Marshall Plan Charities, and how one Afghan village was revitalized by empowering the people with the tools they needed to survive.  
    Plus, we break down what you need to know about former Vice President Joe Biden’s female press team and what the media missed about President Donald Trump’s powerful female leadership team.
    And as always, we’ll be crowning our "Problematic Woman of the Week."

Fantastic

In a world where legacy media sources are so untrustworthy, this is a terrific, informative and fun listen

Thank you

Dear Hosts,
Thank you for your amazing work. As a young atheist female conservative, I love this podcast and how it presents a wide range of issues from both a female and a conservative perspective. Keep up the great work!

So refreshing!

So thankful for a podcast that discusses the things real women worry about and want to fight for. Feminism is not the radical platform that the Feminist Left portray to the world. There are so many women who do not agree with them. Thank you for bringing up the issues from the perspective of conservative women. We appreciate you!
