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 […]
Feminist Frequency Radio Episode 13: Tilda Swinton and Gwendoline Christie’s Space Robot Baby
On this week’s FFR, we suit up to join the crew of the ill-fated (and surprisingly hungry) international space station featured in The Cloverfield Paradox! Ebony gives us her best Irish accent and Carolyn questions the difference between good-bad movies and bad-bad movies while we navigate the rubble of the film’s plot and praise the performance […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast Bonus: The Unbearable Wrongness of Mycelium Science
As we bid adieu to the first season of Star Trek Discovery, the Recap FREQcast has something special for our dedicated (and long-suffering) audience: a bonus rant from game industry pro and Star Trek fan Emily Taylor! Emily has an advanced academic background in plant pathology, and if you were wondering, “Is Star Trek getting its […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast | S01 EP15: Will You Take My Hand?
Join Anita and Ebony as they bid a fond farewell to Star Trek Discovery on this final episode of the Recap FREQcast (well, until DISCO returns in 2019).

Feminist Frequency Radio Episode 12: You Won’t Hate Everything About This Episode!
On this week’s FFR, Carolyn makes her triumphant return to the podcast and celebrates by making Anita and Ebony go see Call Me by Your Name, leading Ebony to recount the seemingly eternal experience of watching the film and forcing Anita to face questions about whether she’s ever been in love. We also talk about the […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast, S01 EP14: The War Without, The War Within
With only one more episode to go after tonight’s emotion-filled warp back into the prime universe, Anita admits that questions about show logic are useless and she should just enjoy the ride. Ebony feels put out by Saru getting booted from the captain’s chair TWICE, and both Anita and Ebony wonder: why is Ash Tyler? Just…why? […]
Thunder and Lightning
Back at the tail end of 2016, dazed from the uppercut of the whitest election result since Andrew Jackson polled his family about whether to have mayonnaise sandwiches or unseasoned chicken for dinner,  I included Marvel’s Luke Cage in my “Fave Five” year-end roundup. What some white critics bemoaned (either obliquely or explicitly) as the show’s […]
Feminist Frequency Radio Episode 11: The Best Show Ever Made on the Planet According to Zahra Noorbakhsh
This week, Anita and Ebony are joined by the wonderful feminist Muslim Iranian-American comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh, who brings a bevy of insights to the table: How does the CW superhero show Black Lightning pay homage to the 60s sitcom Bewitched? How is the “manventure” movie Jaws actually about intersectional feminism? Zahra reveals all this and more, […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast: What’s Past Is Prologue
In this week’s episode, Ebony reveals that a significant portion of her enjoyment of DISCO springs from the knowledge that Anita is somewhere suffering through all the gaping plot holes, ill-conceived mayhem, and occasionally terrible set design. Anita shares some good Stamets dialogue, while Ebony has to admit that she didn’t absolutely love Burnham’s hair this […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast: “Vaulting Ambition”
In this episode of the Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast, Anita discovers to her horror that her trusty co-host has been replaced by a 2 finga ring-sporting clone from the Mirror Universe.
