I was the biggest Double X fan. It took my rural, conservative views and challenged my thinking. They made sure to have a mix of serious political and lighter topics, and even included different points of view! I listened to every single episode. It really influenced how I grew into my feminism. The hosts provided facts and different viewpoints, and really gave you a chance to think about the topic and come to your own conclusions. The new show, not so much. It’s an echo chamber of wokeness. If you disagree, not only are you wrong, but you’re a terrible human being. If you’re hyper progressive and love hearing your own ideas echoed back to you, then you’ll probably enjoy this podcast. If you’re not, don’t bother. It’s breaking my heart to unsubscribe, but it’s not even close to being the show it used to be with the old hosts.

So bad it’s like a satire of “women’s” podcast

I was originally so excited about the new diverse additions to the Waves but instead of adding more to the conversation these new hosts are so boring and predictable they have nothing new to offer. Their subjects and opinions are so boring and predictable it’s like a parody of itself. Such a shame.

In this episode of How to Raise a Parent we’re looking at the many ways children can teach us to be more fearless as adults. Whether they’re encouraging us to take a literal leap on a flying trapeze or motivating us to follow our dreams, kids seem to possess a unique and unadulterated type of bravery. So where does that pure courageousness go as we age? And how can we reclaim it as adults? To find out, we talked to Corey Wheeland, a marketer, graphic designer, author and mom, and Dr. Cynthia Pury, a professor of psychology at Clemson University.

On June 27, 2019, the eve of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, Christina Cauterucci, Bryan Lowder, and Brandon Tensley hosted a live show in New York City’s Joe’s Pub. They began with a World Pride-sized edition of Pride and Provocations. They were then joined by author Alexander Chee to discuss the legacies of queer activism and thought that inform his writing. Garcia and May Hong, the breakout stars of Netflix’s Tales of the City, also stopped by to talk about their connection to a series with a beloved legacy of its own. Finally, the hosts responded to questions from members of the audience. The show ends with a toast.
