||ExplicitWhat Would Moms Do?||Ronit and Katie discuss the power of history and the power of love in the aftermath of the synagogue shooting at Tree of Life in Pittsburgh. Thank you to the interfaith and community leaders who are uniting to support the Jewish community right now. It means a lot that you’re willing to stand up. Plus, moms are coming to save the world! Thoughtful parenting is a key weapon in the fight against the patriarchy, and on a bigger scale, what if we parented social and political problems instead of trying to win them?

||ExplicitCalling White Women||Ronit & Katie introduce a new drinking game: take a shot every time we talk about the white supremacist patriarchy & have a friend standing by to take you to the hospital. Kavanaugh’s confirmation shines a light on the ugliest parts of American politics and power, including this true, ugly fact: White women have always been more likely to vote with the white supremacist patriarchy (drink!) than with and for other women. Why white women are responsible for other white women, why there’s no such thing as a “good” or “bad” white woman, why you absolutely should not be kneeling for the anthem to protest sexual violence, and a QUIZ!||10/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

THAT DOESN’T HELP.||9/28/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Hit List: Boys Will Be Boys and other Weak Sauce||Welcome to the Hit List: Katie & Ronit murder concepts like “Boys will be boys,” “Now let’s hear from the sexual predator,” and “Talking about this stuff is the real problem - it’s so divisive!” Time to put “boys will be boys” to bed.Jian Gomeshi, John Hockenberry, Woody Allen and--bonus--Sean Penn convinced major publications to publish their unchecked whining.

||ExplicitRespect is not Obedience||Respect is the word du jour, between Colin Kaepernick’s posture, Serena Williams’ catsuit, and things kids yell in the grocery store. When we say “respectful,” do we really mean obedient? Is the definition of respect being appropriated by bigots? Is it ever okay to tell someone, “Shut up and stay in line?” PLUS!

Plus Katie and Ronit take a walk down humiliating middle school memory lane and Ronit finally makes peace with leggings.||8/30/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Smart, Relevant and Real
These two women want to talk about all of the crazy stuff that’s going on in today’s world and how it relates to us females. What better topic to start with than Louis C.K.?? They dive right in and don’t hold back. Hopefully Louis is listening. After all, (as they so wisely point out) listening is what men need to do now.
Strong Female Voices!
We need some strong female voices, now more than ever, and this is it!
My favorite blog is now a PodCast!
Brilliant, hilarious, and yes, mandatory!
This is one of my very favorite podcasts, and I listen to a LOT of podcasts! I was already a huge fan of Katie's blog, with her brilliant, incisive, profane, and hilarious feminist takes on politics and pop culture, but I love the podcast even more! Ronit is a fantastic addition, and I just love listening to their conversations and hearing them riff off each other and crack each other up. Forty-seven thumbs up!!!
