FFR #50: Gender Swapping in Media, Live at GeekGirlCon ’18!
On this week’s brand new FFR, we’re live at GeekGirlCon ’18 to talk about the ongoing trend of gender swaps in movies and television, whether it be specific characters who are reimagined as women (a la Starbuck in the Battlestar Galactica reboot) or a franchise that has historically centered men now centering female characters (as we […]
The Misogyny Is Coming from Inside the House!
What happens when the misogyny is coming from INSIDE THE HOUSE?! Often, when feminists raise the issue of internalized misogyny, we’re berated as sex-negative prudes who just want to oppress women all over again. But that’s hardly the case. In this episode of The FREQ Show, we break down exactly what we mean–and what we DON’T […]

FFR #47: Top Gun
On this week’s FFR, we fly into the danger zone with Maverick, Iceman, Goose and the rest of the best of the best with the cultural juggernaut that is Top Gun.

FFR #46: Monsters and Men
On this week’s episode of FFR, we discuss the new film Monsters and Men, a drama loosely inspired by the 2014 murder of Eric Garner by officers of the NYPD.
