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 […]
JoCo Cruise Interview #5: Showrunner Amy Berg on Making TV That Matters
In our latest JoCo Cruise interview, Anita talks to writer and showrunner Amy Berg, who has worked on shows such as Leverage, Eureka, Person of Interest, and Starz’ current hit sci-fi series Counterpart. Here, Berg recounts the bold way she once got Joss Whedon’s attention, the unproduced Lost script that helped her make a name for […]
Feminist Frequency Radio #20: Enjoy Your Sloppy Nostalgia Pudding While Also Eating a Chicken Sandwich
In this week’s episode, Carolyn has visited the OASIS of Ready Player One and lives to tell Anita and Ebony the tale, demonstrating her own knowledge of obscure pop culture trivia and criticizing RPO for its use of the woman-as-trophy trope familiar to so many of the properties that inspired it. The gang then moves on […]
JoCo Cruise Interview #3: Wild Adventures and Critical Comedy with John Hodgman
In the third of our JoCo Cruise interviews, Anita talks to the very funny writer/performer/actor John Hodgman about his unusual career, from his stint as an “expert” on anything and everything on The Daily Show to the unlikely way in which he landed the gig of a lifetime, playing the PC in the tremendously successful PC […]
Feminist Frequency Radio 18: A Gaggle of Chimpanzees Hopped Up on Nyquil
In this week’s episode, the Feminist Frequency Killjoys (call us, Marvel) unleash a torrent of opinions about Netflix’s Jessica Jones, from its complicated wrestling with trauma to the ways in which people of color are often used as narrative tools in the service of white women’s healing. Then we gush over the mobile game Florence, which […]
Feminist Frequency Radio Episode 14: Black Panther
This week, on a very special episode of Feminist Frequency Radio, we go all in on Black Panther! From the wonders of Wakandan technology to all the fantastic female characters, from the breathtaking costumes to the surprisingly persuasive politics of the film’s soulful villain, we spend almost the entire show discussing the newest (and brightest) star […]
