Grab your chocolate (lots of it) and listen to Liz and Bea talk about the manosphere, men’s rights activists (i.e. anti women’s rights activits) on the Interwebs, INCELS, terrorism and all the horrible rest of it.
Summer solstice isn’t just the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, it’s also associated with fertility rituals and goddesses. Join Bea, Liz and our special guest Heather in our discussion of the history and current traditions of summer solstice, how it was coopted by the Catholic Church and the Nazis, and how we can reclaim it.
Men who claim to be feminists and then turn out to be (alleged) abusers of women (like James Deen or, most recently Eric Schneiderman) repeatedly focus the public’s attention on male feminism: is it possible, what does it mean and what place should men have in the feminist movement?
Today we discuss what it takes to be a male feminist, how to differentiate between faux feminism and actual feminism in a conversation with “not purely male, fluid inbetween” feminist photographer and artist Michael Würmer.
Get your chocolate ready and join the debate.

Today we talk with perSister Krista Suh, founder of the hat project about her new book “DIY Rules for a WTF World: How to Speak Up, Get Creative, and Change the World”. We discuss masculine “art” vs. “feminine” crafting, how crafting can be a feminist form of expression, how to deal with creating a project that is so successful that it is not actually yours anymore and impostor syndrome. grab your chocolate and enjoy.
You guys, you’ll need all the chocolate for this ’cause we’ll be talking about the myth of the friendzone and all the misogyny connected to it. It’s ugly.
What do the “friendzone”, toxic masculinity, and the “incels” have in common? Everything!
The domestic terrorism that we have seen perpetuated by men, unhappy with their relationships, on innocent bystanders may be the most extreme expression of misogynistic violence perpetrated by those who consider themselves victimized by the “friendzone”. But the toxic masculinity and misogyny is pervasive and is part of all women’s experiences at one point or another.
In this episode we talk about institutionalize misogyny, how popular culture perpetuates unsafe, unhealthy relationships and what we can do about it.
We are so excited to present this interview with author Karen Karbo about her new book, “In Praise of Difficult Women.” We talk about the women who inspire us, the importance of intersectional feminism, and why we should all embrace “difficult” as an adjective to describe us. Whether you’re a nasty woman or a difficult woman, this episode is for you!
Grab some chocolate (this time, though, merely for celebratory reasons instead of psychohygiene) and listen to Liz and Bea talk about some awesome, badass inspiring feminists that shaped their own feminism. Cheers!
Grab your chocolate (lots of chocolate!) and listen to Bea, Liz and special guest Amy talk about all the things from reproductive freedom, to the suffragette movement, to retirement poverty.
Amy Drayer is an activist, author, and feminist. She has written for The Huffington Post, Medium, and is currently working on a novel and worked on progressive political campaigns and issues throughout her career.
