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 in the Marvel cinematic universe.

Also don’t miss a five-minute supplement to this week’s episode in which Ebony shares some thoughts on how Black Panther skillfully navigates themes of culture, history, and the difference between appreciation and appropriation, with one scene in particular serving as a pointed commentary on who gets to own the past.
