The Message in the Medium
This time on The FREQ Show, we’re talking about something that’s at the very core of our mission here at Feminist Frequency, something we believe is truly important: media literacy. Unfortunately, while it’s an essential skill, media literacy often gets short shrift in our schools, and we figured we could all use a quick crash/refresher course […]
FFR #55: Green Book
This week on FFR, Ebony and Carolyn take a road trip with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali in Green Book. The film initially had a good deal of Oscar buzz, and in fact it was just chosen as the best film of 2018 by the National Board of Review. However, not everyone thinks the praise is […]
FFR #54: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
This week, we’re off to Greendale to spend some time with the new Netflix series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina! The latest incarnation of the teenage witch who originated in comics in the early 1960s and who famously had her own TV show in the 1990s, The Chilling Adventures takes a creepier approach, with plenty of […]
FFR #53: Widows
On this week’s Feminist Frequency Radio, we follow Viola Davis wherever she wants to lead us in director Steve McQueen’s new film, Widows. On the surface, Widows looks like a heist flick, though notably one with women comprising the crew at its center. But while Widows certainly has many elements of a heist film, it’s not […]
FFR #52: A Star is Born
This week’s episode is (maybe) our one year anniversary and Ebony eats cake in celebration. This week’s discussion surrounds the most recent remake of A Star is Born, directed by and starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. As usual, we are a group divided on these tortured love stories but it might not be what you expect. Ebony […]
FFR #51: Maniac (Please Don’t Do Anything Horrible, Jonah)
This week’s episode comes to you from two new satellite studios in the Keanu Reeves Memorial Complex! Anita has moved to L.A. and reports in from Johnny Utah HQ; Caro has started phoning in from the Johnny Mnemonic Wing; and Ebony continues to keep it buck at the Johnny Wick Workshop. Our discussion this week centered […]

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 […]
