#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.

#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?
