Imani Gandy: Fucking While Feminist Episode 29

Gird your loins, listeners, because this week we’re joined by the Angry Black Lady! RH Reality Check’s Senior Legal Analyst Imani Gandy is delightful and informative as she joins Jaclyn to talk about what we should really be learning from the Gosnell case, the most recent attacks on abortion access and female sexual agency, major fail on understanding the birth control mandate, why exactly she’s so angry, who is and is not welcome in her uterus, and a bit of good news for those of us who care about reproductive justice (hint: it rhymes with Ann C.). Then we help out a listener who’s desperate to restart her sex life even while economically trapped at her (not-very-understanding) parents’ house.

Dave Zirin: Fucking While Feminist Episode 28

Why is so much of sports culture so toxic when it comes to sexuality, and can it be changed? Jaclyn caught up with The Nation’s first an only sports columnist Dave Zirin to talk trans athletes, abusive coaches, rape culture, Brittney Griner, “no homo,” Batman’s nipples, the power of feminist moms, and the sportswriting of Susan B. Anthony. Then we take on an advice question from a listener who’s feeling challenged by navigating the poly scene in a brown, curvy body, especially because she has a partner who’s telling her how to feel about it all.  Recorded live at the National Conference for Media Reform!

Zerlina Maxwell: Fucking While Feminist Episode 27

Between gun legislation and Steubenville coverage, March came in like a rape-apologist lion and never really got lamb-y. Few bore the brunt of this particular shitstorm like this week’s guest, Zerlina Maxwell, who found herself on the receiving end of a tidal wave of vile and violent threats just for suggesting that rape prevention efforts should focus on men. This week, Zerlina joins Jaclyn to talk about what it’s like privately to be a rape survivor who speaks up about it in public — how do we deal with our own feelings and triggers while doing the hard work of challenging the status quo, and what makes it all worthwhile. Then we answer a doozy of a listener question, from a woman (and survivor) whose friend’s son is a convicted rapist.

Jessica Luther: Fucking While Feminist Episode 26

Let’s talk romance! Jaclyn gets in-depth with Jessica Luther, who’s just reported on feminist romance novels for The Atlantic. What do romance novels have in common with porn, how do we (or do we) subvert the trope of happy endings, and where are the lesbians? Plus book recommendations, the likability factor, a lot of talk about cunnilingus, and the twin doctors who were Jaclyn’s first. Then we answer a listener advice question about weighing the risk of exploring a new attraction against the risk of destabilizing a good relationship.

Brittney Cooper and Treva Lindsey: Fucking While Feminist Episode 24

Let’s talk Scandal! Jaclyn catches up with Drs. Brittney Cooper and Treva Lindsey to talk all things Olivia Pope, starting with the question they asked at The Feminist Wire: Can a Black woman ever have an unapologetic sexual self in public without being called Jezebel?

Spectra: Fucking While Feminist Episode 23

This week Jaclyn catches up with Spectra, a Nigerian writer, media advocate, and “Love” activist, who’s just returned from traveling through Southern Africa for 6 months, where she trained African women’s rights activists to use media and technology for advocacy. She brings us some stories of lgbt lives in some of the countries she visited that the US press never tells — and explains exactly how the US press impacts those lives. Then we dig into a heartfelt and complex listener question about trans* identity, fat bodies, and how to love your body and want to change it at the same time.

Miss Conduct: Fucking While Feminist Episode 22

Hate Valentine’s Day? Love Valentine’s Day? This is your podcast. Jaclyn is joined by Boston Globe columnist Miss Conduct (aka author Robin Abrahams) for an episode full of hearts, flowers and bittertinis. We talk Galentine’s Day, the romance-industrial complex (and the mysterious short-sightedness of marketers), “fake holidays,” dealing with (and avoiding being) the Valentine’s Police, which one of us likes to eat conversation hearts, and some genuinely loving ideas for marking the day, no matter how you feel about it.

Brown Girls Burlesque: Fucking While Feminist Episode 21

Brace yourselves for the fabulousness, people: this week Jaclyn is joined by Jazabel Jade and exHOTic other, two of the Lovelies that make up Brown Girls Burlesque. We talk about what makes shaking your titties in public feminist, what scared them most when they got into the burlesque game (it wasn’t stripping), how they maintain (and sometimes blur) the boundaries between their public personas and their private life , exHOTic’s upcoming burlesque about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and so much more. Then, we take on a question about how you can give someone special a private dance at home, even if you feel awkward and shy.

Alyssa Rosenberg: Fucking While Feminist Episode 20

Culture writer Alyssa Rosenberg has us coming back for more — she’s our first return guest on Fucking While Feminist! On today’s episode we talk about nearly everything, including Nicki vs. Mariah, some great sexuality-related comedies you’re currently missing on FX, Zero Dark Thirty, Argo, the limits of the Bechdel Test, why everyone hates Anne Hathaway (and why we love her), Tina and Amy, some Sundance films to keep an eye out for, the sexually frank film that should have been Oscar bait but wasn’t, why Beasts of the Southern Wild was the best superhero flick of the year, and the best we can hope for from the Oscars. Then Alyssa teaches us all how to never feel guilty about our entertainment pleasures.
