FFR #33: W. Kamau Bell’s New Comedy Special and the Very Real Dangers of Online Harassment
This week on FFR, the dynamic trio discusses the new Netflix comedy special by self-proclaimed “heterosexual cisgender dad man” W. Kamau Bell, Private School Negro, which gets into matters of white supremacy and whether or not Trump is a racist. (“Yes, he is a racist.”) Then, following two tragic instances of deadly violence last week that […]
FFR #32: It’s Tearjerker Time!
Who needs a good cry? Well, we’ve got you covered this week as we discuss two works bristling with poignant and powerful emotion. First up is the new documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? about the life and work of Fred Rogers, who brought a philosophy of radical kindness and love to the often crass and […]
FFR #31: Catching Pancakes With Special Guest Open Mike Eagle
On this week’s Feminist Frequency Radio, Anita and Ebony chop it up with hip hop artist Open Mike Eagle, who you may remember from one of Anita’s JoCo Cruise interviews. Topics include Mike’s experience at E3 2018, sexism in games and in sports journalism, how professional wrestling has changed, the uncomfortable horror of TV’s The Handmaid’s […]
FFR #30: I Come Bearing Stories
In this week’s episode, we welcome Anita back to the bridge and set sail on the USS Radical Empathy for a heist adventure for the ages! We dig into the effervescent appeal of Ocean’s 8, while sparing a wink for that queer subtext we love. Anita has questions about why Rihanna’s character doesn’t vape in this, […]
FFR #29: Invest in Sassy Droids!
In this week’s episode, it’s a sci-fi spectacular as Ebony and Caro navigate the asteroid field of a movie that is Solo. We talk everything from Ron Howard’s directing to the squandering of Thandie Newton to the Star Wars series’ gradual shift into a much less interesting approach to storytelling. We reserve particular ire, however, for […]
FFR #26: Caution–This Podcast Contains Moderate Amounts of Effing and Jeffing
In this week’s FFR, Anita’s off on another one of her damn fool adventures so it’s up to Ebony and Carolyn to captain our flagship podcast! In a nod to Carolyn’s love of classic cinema, we discuss the classic 1940 “comedy of remarriage,” His Girl Friday, starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell. Despite being nearly 80 […]
Feminist Frequency Radio #25: A Robitussin Ride
On this week’s FFR, it’s a queer media extravaganza as we talk Netflix’s reboot of Queer Eye and the Wachowskis’ seminal 90s lesbian crime film Bound. Queer Eye can certainly be heartwarming and endearing, but we also discuss how it obscures systemic issues and misrepresents potential solutions to matters of oppression and violence against marginalized people. […]
FFR #23: Live at Kickstarter with Special Guest Jay Smooth
In this week’s episode, Anita and Ebony are at Kickstarter HQ in Brooklyn recording the podcast in front of a live studio audience! Best of all, they’re joined by special guest, cultural commentator and hip hop DJ Jay Smooth. Ebony leads the trio through a wide-ranging assortment of questions that find them discussing Breaking Bad, Bradley […]
FFR #22–Apples: The Loudest @$%*ing Fruit (TM)
On this week’s show, we discuss the use of sound and silence in John Krasinski’s new horror thriller A Quiet Place, whether Ebony would survive in this particular brand of apocalypse, the agony of living in a world without crunchy food, and whether seeing it in a theater is the best decision or the worst decision. […]
Feminist Frequency Radio #21: Watch the Fried Ones
In this week’s episode of Feminist Frequency Radio, Anita and the gang travel the world with the delectable cuisine of Netflix’s new food documentary series Ugly Delicious, which explores the collisions of food, culture, and history. When does culinary tribute cross over into culinary appropriation? How do we handle beloved foods that have become saddled with […]
