So much love
This is currently one of my favourite podcasts. I'm learning and laughing heaps.
A rare pleasure
I have really gotten a lot of out listening to this podcast, hosted by Dr Athena Bellas. As someone who has not studied feminist theory, it’s an absolute delight to hear and learn from these brilliant young women talking about feminism and media with a real love for the pop culture they study. Half the time I wish I could join in! Thanks very much to Dr Bellas and all the participants.
