FEMINIST PODCASTS: 5 SHOWS YOU WANT TO FOLLOW

It’s Tuesday. I have a twenty-minute commute to work that consists of a bus ride and a quick ride on the underground. The underground is one of those places that we must all endure, daily, and we seem to have a love and hate relationship with it.

Have you ever tried to make eye contact with humans on the underground? It usually goes like this: Hey, she’s wearing a nice scarf. Oh, now, I’m looking too long; too long. She saw me. We made eye contact. Enter: awkward feelings.

The daily commute to work can be long and sometimes a bit awkward. That is why I like to fill in the empty space with insightful podcasts and disappear into a good conversation. I’ve recently been taking a step into great feminist podcasts educating myself on statistics, tips, and great stories that are empowering and helpful.

It’s time to share that insight with you.

I’ve really enjoyed these feminist podcasts and staying up-to-date on current issues and advice from HUMANS that have been there. It’s refreshing to feel like others are experiencing the same struggles and are willing to offer advice to navigate the labyrinth of gender bias more successfully.
