THE SOUVENIR with special guest CAROLYN PETIT | Feminist Frequency Radio 196

Next in our series of works by women filmmakers is director Joanna Hogg’s loosely-autobiographical 2019 film, The Souvenir. Joining us to talk about the film is FemFreq Favorite and Managing Editor at Kotaku, Carolyn Petit! We’ve missed our former co-host and know you have, too; a good discussion is all but guaranteed when Caro’s in the house, and today is no exception as we tackle the film’s themes of addiction, power, art, self-discovery and more. And be sure to check out our bonus episode this week! Usually a Patrons-only privilege, this week’s Bonus is available wherever you get your podcasts or at
