Cannot get enough...

Only a couple of weeks ago did I find this podcast, completely by accident, and it might be my favorite piece of media I’ve encountered this year. The hosts tear into their subjects with such clarity and depth, you may need a cigarette afterwards. So satisfying. Thank you, thank you, Rebecca and Maya!

Feminist heaven

I could listen to these two talk about anything. They bring knowledge, historical context and nuance. They go two or three layers deeper than so many other podcasts talking about pop culture.

Smashing!

Smashing the patriarchy... but sugar coated with style and wit! For a couple of unrepentant strident feminists these chicks are absolutely killing it on all fronts. The gun crazy episode would be a good place to start; you'll laugh, you'll cry and probably pick up a thing or two you did not already know...
