My fave 4 feminist podcasts
Podcasts are the new YouTube. That's why YouTubers now make podcasts. It is a little strange, at first, you know, the whole listening thing. Where are the pictures?!! (Am I supposed to use my imagination?) It does feel a bit like 1994 "Bibi Blocksberg" cassettes. (This probably didn't make sense at all if you're not German. "Bibi Blocksberg" was a famous children's audio drama. Back in the days. Maybe it still is?!) Anyway, podcasts are "Bibi Blocksberg" for adults. Here are my 4 feminists faves. (Hope no one is getting nervous about the word "feminist". It's all good. Feminism is your friend.)
1. Women of the Hour with Lena Dunham
This is a 10 episodes podcast from 2015. Which is last year. Which probably means 100 years old in the internet world. You do have to give credit to Lena Dunham, though, for creating the first (was it the first?... definitely among the first) feminist podcast. The topics are similar to the ones in "GIRLS": female friendships and female bodies. Feat. Jemima Kirke (thou goddess!)
2. #girlboss radio with Sophia Amoruso
(Okay, maybe "#girlboss radio" was the first feminist podcast. Anyway.) This podcast ist all about - hold your breath - girlbosses!! Badass CEOs and alpha females at L'Oréal, Lululemon and Refinery29. And there's Country Love.
3. Ladies Who Lunch with Ingrid Nilsen and Cat Valdes
Let's get to the grain here: "Ladies who lunch" is my absolute favorite podcast!! Who would have thought that two YouTube girls would speak so much truth, so much wisdom. They speak to me! The podcast is brand new and the first episodes get right into it: Ingrid and Cat talk feminism, LGBTQ and motherhood. If you only listen to one podcast, listen to this one!
4. Ctrl Alt Delete von Emma Gannon
Another new & fresh podcast in the audio world. Among Emma's first guests are Elisabeth Gilbert, Zoella and Cheryl Strayed. Not too shabby.
