Podcasts we love: The Guilty Feminist

The Guilty Feminist: A comedy gem and guilt-free pleasure. Female readers: You may spend a good portion of your lives railing against patriarchal structures and fighting for respect in the workplace, the right to make choices, and your seat at the table. But do you ever feel a twinge of concern about hidden insecurities and conflicting impulses that undermine the very feminist principles you spend so much time defending? Do you ever feel a smidgen of — dare we say it — guilt?

In the Guilty Feminist, comedian Deborah Frances-White and her guests tackle issues ranging from the earth-shattering to the mundane. No matter the topic, they are unfailingly candid and hilarious. The podcast opens up a space for people to laugh at their own foibles (in the fine tradition of the best comedy), but has also created a community ready to show you don’t have to be perfect feminist — or a perfect activist of any kind — to speak out in defense of people’s rights.
