Reals podcasts of Bohemia
I listen to this podcast while I work and love it. My job can be really stressful (heart surgeon) so this is a great way to keep my day fun while I do surgery.
Generating a new feminist lexicon
The Real Housewives of Bohemia podcast is two best friends -- a Ph.D student / published poet and a featured performer / improviser from the Upright Citizen's Brigade -- who giggle raucously while dismantling the patriarchy.
It's like a giddy, goofy sleepover, like eavesdropping on your cool sister and her friends, like taking a women's studies class consisting solely of field trips and rosé. They're generating a new feminist lexicon and it's super fun!
I like all the episodes, but I'd recommend starting with the latest one, episode 6, where Lauren and Becca report back from a conversation between bell hooks and Gloria Steinem that swings from serious to silly and all points in between while also engaging with some amazing ideas.
If you listen to podcasts, if you are a feminist, if you like to laugh, and/or if you just like to hang out with smart, funny people, you will love this podcast. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and this is my favorite one!

Welcome to Bohemia!
The first episode starts with laughter and the fun keeps going. Great podcast with some really funny ladies!
