#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.

#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.
