Feminist Wednesday!

February 24th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I’ve blogged about this once before, but I’m tellin’ you again: the most fun part of my week is going on Chicago Public Radio’s for “Feminist Wednesday” with Molly and Brian. Molly is our sassy feminist moderator, and Brian plays the part of devil’s advocate (notice he’s frowning in Molly’s lovely little drawing on the left).

This week, we talked to Dorothee Royal-Hedinger, a Girldrive interviewee and founder/host of She explained why food is a feminist issue, and what she’s planning for International Women’s Day on March 8 (more on that next week!).

Listen here.

I’ve really liked doing the show on Vocalo because we’re speaking to a depoliticized, mass audience. It takes me out of the feminist echo chamber; Molly and I try to discuss things that really resonate for the average person and not only the feminist-savvy among us. We’re also fun and super-honest (our guerilla tactic to break down ridiculous stereotypes about humorless, overly PC feminism). Plus, we always have Brian to argue what some of the listeners might be thinking.

If you’re in the Chicago area, you can always listen to Feminist Wednesday from 1-2 p.m. on 89.5 FM…and if you’re elsewhere, you can stream it at
