The F Word explores varied aspects of feminism through discussion and interviews. Woven between tracks by talented yet under-played female and gender-bending musicians, the show features everything from the hilarity of women in comedy to the harrowing reality of sexual violence. The F Word Collective is a grassroots, volunteer-run organization which hosts and produces Vancouver’s only explicitly feminist radio show, coming to you from unceded Coast Salish territories, and airing on CFRO 102.7 FM, Vancouver’s Co-op radio.

I look forward to listening to this podcast every week. It is a joy to be able to learn about all the different facets of women's status in society around the world, and that is exactly what this podcast delivers. The volume is a little spotty and is a tad lower than the other podcasts that I listen to, but it isn't a chronic problem. The music is also great, and because of this podcast, I have been exposed to feminist music that I didn't know existed. This show is insightful and enlightening and I hope that it'll be here for a long(er) time to come!
The hosts are insightful and intelligent. Love this podcast!
Used to be better
I am a big fan of The F Word podcast and am very glad they are continuing to produce them. However, the show was better when Meghan Murphy was on; it had more of a radical edge and covered issues not typically heard even on other feminist news sources. I'm glad this show is staying abolitionist when it comes to the sex industry, and I know the women involved in producing it do work hard. It's worth checking out, even if the newer episodes aren't as up to par as the ones that used to be produced.
