#73 Transparent (Amazon’s Prime?)

Nicky, Nida and Daria take a warts-and-all look at the third season (well, all three seasons really, but mainly the third) of Transparent, Amazon's drama-comedy about the family of a trans parent. (Oh! That's what that means.) Themes of Jewishness, gender (trans-, cis- and otherwise), stereotypes, representation, family, catchphrases and more get the FNLS treatment this week.

#71 Women’s March Recap (Kellyanne Conway’s Alternative Men’s Hour)

A week out from the Women's March, Jill and Daria talk about their time at the local March on Canberra. They also look over some of the reactions from people around the world - positive and negative - and bring you some footage straight from the March itself. All this, and Daria wants to do homages.
