A Paradigm shift
Christina and Danielle’s conversations is changing how I view feminism. This podcast shows me that not all feminist are “triggered ideologues”. I can’t wait for more.
Interesting, educational, and entertaining
I happened upon this podcast while browsing one day and the description sounded interesting. I started with the second episode, which I thought was insightful and interesting. I am looking forward to hearing more. This is a great podcast for those interested in feminism from a balanced, educated perspective.
I listened to the first episode and was really enjoying it until they began talking about children. The comment about “those of us who should have kids, which is most of us...” really left a bad taste in my mouth. Society pressures women enough, felt like it was only trying to empower those who choose children
