Rank #5: Episode 22: How to be a male feminist with Michael Würmer

Podcast cover
Read more
Men who claim to be feminists and then turn out to be (alleged) abusers of women (like James Deen or, most recently Eric Schneiderman) repeatedly focus the public's attention on male feminism: is it possible, what does it mean and what place should men have in the feminist movement? 

Today we discuss what it takes to be a male feminist, how to differentiate between faux feminism and actual feminism in a conversation with "not purely male, fluid inbetween" feminist photographer and artist Michael Würmer.

Get your chocolate ready and join the debate.

Podcast cover

Grab your Halloween chocolate and listen to Heather explain all the things about the fun parts of being a woman in the early modern era (like not being allowed to do or say anything ever because anything can be suspect and you’re gonna get killed). Featuring merry tales of persecution, killing, burning and castration anxiety. (Yay)

Also: fitting the theme of castration anxiety and misogyny, you’ll learn a binding spell against trump, which should be part of anyone’s magical survival kit, so listen to this.

Rank #9: Episode 4.1: Rethinking Sodom: The Bible and Queer Sexuality

Podcast cover
Read more
It's time to grab your chocolate again, as in this episode (which is a cutout from last week's binegativity episode), Bethany talks about everything that is wrong with all of us disgusting (homo/bi/pan/a/...) sexual humans - according to religious bigots. But don't despair! She then deconstructs everything and tells these zealots why THEY are wrong. If you need good arguments against scripture-based queernegativity and if you want to listen to Beth butchering Greek words, to Liz swearing and to Bea not knowing the names of the articles she quotes and making jokes that nobody finds funny, you need this episode. You're welcome.

Rank #13: Episode 3.3: Pregnant Bodies as/in the Public Space

Podcast cover
Read more
Women's bodies are routinely scrutinized, policed, touched without their consent and decided upon without their having a say in it. Don't worry, it gets worse: being pregnant does not really change that; in fact, strangers might feel motivated to touch your belly or force you to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. All we have is chocolate, ladies.
