Smart and Snappy

This is one of the best podcasts out there. It balances an academic level understanding of modern issues with the accessibility of exciting speaker guests. I always leave this podcast feeling calm and more informed. Every person should listen to this!

Wonderful, eye-opening podcast!

Jen does an amazing job of finding smart, interesting women to interview. I’ve learned so much listening to this podcast. The negative reviews here are so funny to me, because (A) it’s clearly people who have never listened to the podcast who just hate anything they perceive as “feminist” and (B) facts don’t care about trolls’ opinions.

This is a wonderful podcast. I recommend it to everyone!

Must Listen To Podcast for Post Trump World

The Electorette taps resources that I’ve never heard from before—from women, and in particular, black women, for thoughtful, smart and thought-provoking conversations. This is how we need to prepare for what comes after the disaster trump world—one in which we reconcile the ways that patriarchy and a white power structure have forced greater struggles on those who weren’t ‘lucky’ enough to be born able-bodies, straight, male, white and wealthy. I’m grateful for this podcast for opening windows and doors in my mind so I can reshuffle what I once thought was a somewhat universal experience.
