A Refreshingly Upbeat Approach to Feminism

By BunnyRabbid - Jun 19 2019
Read more

I have shied away from many a feminist pod due to the fully justified rage it inspires in my heart. While it does feel good to rant it out with some co-humans occasionally, it leaves me feeling exhausted. This podcast has a more constructive and positive approach to feminist discussions that leave me feeling inspired and full of joy. Building each other up and celebrating our accomplishments together feels more constructive than screaming in to the patriarchal void. My favorite episode is still “How to Change a Tire”.

This podcast is so validating. Many of the topics discussed here are from areas I have personally struggled with or had unanswered questions about. It’s liberating to know my feelings and experiences are real and justified.
