FFR #76: Knock Down the House
Hey, Feminist Frequency Listeners (all 3 of ya!) We had a fantastic discussion about the new Netflix documentary Knock Down the House, which documents the thrilling challenges posed to the political establishment  by the record numbers of women and people of color looking to unseat long-time incumbents in 2018. In addition to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez of New […]
FFR #75: Avengers: Endgame
On this week’s FFR, our 75th episode, it’s a spoilerific conversation about the latest MCU crossover epic, Avengers: Endgame. First we talk about whether or not the film worked for us purely on the level of being an enjoyable superhero film that offers a satisfying conclusion to the cliffhanger of Infinity War, before delving into deeper […]
FFR #73: Shazam!
Anita’s off on another one of her globehopping adventures, so Ebony and Carolyn hold it down this week with a look at the latest DC Comics flick, Shazam! There’s a refreshing sense of lighthearted fun to this film, especially in contrast to the grimdark Batman and stuffy Superman of DC’s recent movie output, and a welcome […]

We talk about living […]
FFR #69: Batman Returns (and Ebony goes missing)
This week, the crew hosts writer, designer, and founder of Sweet Baby Inc, Kim Belair for a hilarious discussion of the 1992 cinematic classic Batman Returns! Before that, though, Caro serves up a heapin’ helpin’ of cringeworthy Pop Culture News (this week’s topics included info about James Gunn’s rehiring for Guardians of the Galaxy 3; Operation […]
FFR 68: Captain Marvel
The crew is back together as we dive into all that is Captain Marvel, the newest entry in the Marvel Cinematic universe.

Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast #7: Light and Shadows
Anita gets a little too excited when her one night stand (Tyler) and her future husband (Pike) are on an away mission together. We finally meet Disco Spock and well…that just sort of happened. There are some weird gender roles happening on Vulcan that we ain’t too happy about. Plus Ebony is not having any of […]
FFR #66: The Oscars + Alita: Battle Angel
This week we forgo our traditional entertainment news so Anita can talk far too long about this year’s Oscars while Ebony laughs just at her. Then we begrudgingly dive into Alita: Battle Angel the new Robert Rodriguez live action film based on the 1990’s manga series and hooboy do we have a lot to say. Become […]
