1. Happy Pride!!

Episode 41: We're going to Ibiza, or How to Oust a Corrupt Government
As you may know, the right-wing/conservative Austrian coalition government was ousted from office via a no-confidence vote from Parliament after a video surfaced that showed the vice-chancellor in Ibiza promising favorable treatment for government contracts to a (supposed) niece of Russian oligarch and basically suggested selling Austria's biggest tabloid to her. Sound shady? Yep, it's super shady. This is how you oust a corrupt government. Join us in our conversation about the political situation in Austria and what it means for the future of feminist politics.
