This is a great new podcast. In each episode, the two hosts — each with their own unique perspectives — discuss a handful of topics that segue into broader discussions of feminism. It’s fun and very informative.
Two excellent hosts, with a lot of knowledge to share. I really enjoy listening and learning new things from their podcast. Keep it up!
These podcasts are very educational to me as an older, pretty unaware of what’s going on with feminist issues, female. They made me think about things that I didn’t even know I needed to think about. The issues are presented clearly, with humor, and with depth.
