By Slate

The Waves, formerly known as the Double X Gabfest, is a weekly conversation about news and culture examined through the lens of gender and feminism. Every Thursday, join the hosts—including Invisibilia co-host Hanna Rosin, New York magazine's Noreen Malone, Slate Podcasts' June Thomas, Slate staff writer Christina Cauterucci, Topic's Anna Holmes, and producer Veralyn Williams—for frank discussions about the ways gender shapes everything. Our new name reflects generations of women from the various waves of feminism, the sound waves that carry us to your ears, and the waves we intend to make.

Another Gabfest

Already avid listener to the Polital and Cuture Gabfests which are both highly entertaining and informative. Emily and Hanna together shoud be interesting. As least they won' thave to fight to be heard, Plotz and Dickerson like to interrupt alot ;-) Congtrats on the web launch!


A smart, sophisticated view of today's social and political issues by 3 women who have managed not to sound like ferocious feminists. It's a keeper!

I enjoyed listening

A smart, timely podcast with an informed discussion. Don't let the name -- XX Gabfest -- turn you off, as it almost did for me. (Good grief -- "Gabfest"?! I don't care if it's a Slate name; it has connotations!) I'm familiar with Emily's byline from Slate, so I knew I'd hear a smart discussion. The 10-minute segments are just enough time to discuss details without becoming tiresome. Maybe in the future, consider having interviews with people outside the three regulars? In all, good job, ladies.
