#66 Queering boardgames (Rolling the Dykes)

Join us as we are talking about our favorite boardgames, and giving them a bit of the queer shakedown and the feminist turnaround.

#65 2016 US Presidential Election (Make Women Nasty Again)

In this episode we are talking about the impact of the 2016 US Presidential Election on queer women, non-binary people and others with whom we stand in solidarity.

(We didn't want to use a picture of Donald Trump, so here's a much preferred gentleman with wild orange hair instead.)

Emily, Jayne and Rosie join Courtney and Izzy to talk about the shape of America (and the world) for the next four years and beyond.

#64 Breasts (Free the Nipple)

From the trope of feminist 'bra-burning' to how uncomfortable underwires can be, to the way breasts are used to sell ethical causes.

How does the movement against bras just open up a market for 'bralettes', and how does it work for bigger-breasted people? Has queer(?) bralessness been taken over by pop-feminism?
