Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast on Episode 11: The Wolf Inside
In this episode, our intrepid hosts continue to coast on impulse power through the mirror universe with the crew of Discovery, trying and failing to muster any interest in what’s happening after last week’s uncharacteristic goodness! Ebony expresses her surprise at Burnham’s excellent hair situation given the lack of satin sleep bonnets on ship; Anita finds […]
Feminist Frequency Radio Episode 8: Now With Bonus Relaxing Nature Sounds!
With rainfall lending a lovely natural ambiance to the conversation, we discuss the power of representation in Black Panther and the formation of the Time’s Up initiative to combat cultures of sexual harassment in every industry. This brings us to the highlights and disappointments of the politically charged 75th Annual Golden Globes. After discussing everything from […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast | S01 EP10: Despite Yourself
No one is more surprised than Anita and Ebony when they tune in to the latest episode of Star Trek Discovery and realize to their utter astonishment that they are actually ok with what’s occurring on screen. Anita reveals more tremendous gaps in her Star Trek knowledge, Ebony tries to cover up for the fact that […]
Leaping Around in Time with Anita Sarkeesian and the Doctor: Feminist Frequency Radio Episode 7
Happy New Year, everyone! We get 2018 off to a perfectly smooth start as Anita leaps us forward in time by launching us right into a conversation about the Doctor Who Christmas Special, which marked both the end of Peter Capaldi’s tenure as the Doctor and the introduction of Jodie Whittaker, the first woman to ever […]
Anita’s Most Memorable Media of 2017
Every new year I say to myself, “Self, keep track of the media you love this year so when December rolls around you know exactly what to write about,” and every year, I don’t do it. This year is no different. Trying to come up with some of my favourites of the year often results in […]
Do They Know it’s Christmastime at All? | The FREQ Show 01.08
So let’s be real: 2017 sucked. But even in the midst of all that awfulness, there were a few things to celebrate, a few reasons to hope, a few reminders that we should still keep fighting for a better world. From awesome female characters in video games to awesome trans women winning important political victories, from […]
Ashley’s Happy Distractions from 2017
For me, this was the year of the podcast. Whether waiting in an airport terminal or securely seated on a train, I was happy to temporarily retreat from the world and listen to folks speak for hour-long stints on a whole host of fascinating topics. Talk about an excellent way to pass the time – especially […]
Ebony’s 2017 Comfort Blankets
For what it’s worth (quite a lot, actually), there were moments of solace and triumph in the largely fetid swamp of 2017. For my money, 99% of those moments were born from the work, passion, and creativity of trans folks, the disabled community,* and people of color. I learned more and laughed harder this year than […]
Carolyn’s Fave Five: TV in 2017
In times of particularly intense struggle or hardship, people sometimes say that it’s difficult to see why film or TV or video games might matter. To me, it’s often times like this when the necessity of art in our lives becomes the clearest, and in 2017, I found television particularly important as a way of trying […]
Mark Ruffalo’s Cat-Sized Frozen Peanut Butter Dog Adventure: Feminist Frequency Radio Episode Four
In episode four of FFR, just like Riker holding down the bridge for Picard, Carolyn takes over hosting duties while Anita flies back from Europe! (Don’t worry, Anita shall return next week!) We finally meet Ashley, the mysterious fourth member of the Feminist Frequency team, who sheds some light on her role in the organization. We […]
