Smart Podcast, Trashy Books: 459. Facts, Feminism, and Menopause with Dr. Jen Gunter
Tara and I exclaimed at each other about Dr. Jen Gunter’s latest book, The Menopause Manifesto, so we figured we should exclaim at her, too. In this conversation, we cover the book, the facts and science about menopause, and the history of how predatory patriarchal bullcrap has influenced how we think, talk, and learn about menopause. We also talk about pseudoscience, getting health advice from Facebook and Instagram (bad idea jeans), and curly hair!
Feminists Without Mystique: Ep 132: If Roe Falls
Last week the Supreme Court announced it will hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that poses a direct challenge to the nearly 50 year precedent of Roe vs Wade. With the new conservative supermajority, it’s the worst case scenario for reproductive rights advocates, and all of us, tbh. Even if you think it doesn’t affect you directly it does // it will! It’s all on the line.

First Cup of Coffee – May 25, 2021: I’m celebrating the release of THE PROMISED QUEEN! I’m also at the Inn of the Mountain Gods, so a bit scattered. Telling you all why I subtweeted about Zoom instructions, high def makeup, and paying authors.

The SSR Podcast: Episode 145: Keeping the Moon (with Lily Herman)
For only the second time, SSR is taking on the Sarah Dessen universe on Episode 145, this time in a conversation about Keeping the Moon. Tune in to hear Alli and her guest discuss the 2019 Sarah Dessen controversy, their complicated feelings about main character Colie’s arc in Keeping the Moon, the fictional love interests that ruined them as teens, the makeover trope that took over pop culture in the ‘90s, and the way this book depicts appearances and body image.

Episode 146: Mary Poppins (with Misa Sugiura): You may think you know Mary Poppins from the 1964 Disney movie starring Julie Andrews… but you might not recognize the original portrayal of the magical nanny as she’s written in the book that inspired the film! Mary Poppins was written by P.L. Travers and published in 1934 — and it’s not as warm and fuzzy as the version we’ve seen on-screen! On Episode 146, Alli and her guest take a close look at Travers’s book, discussing their complicated feelings about the characters, swapping notes about their favorite Mary Poppins adventures, and considering the historical and personal context that inspired the story.
Misa Sugiura is the author of It’s Not Like It’s a Secret and This Time Will Be Different, as well as a story in the anthology Come On In. Her new book Love & Other Natural Disasters will be available on June 8, 2021. Follow Misa on Instagram (@misallaneous1) and Twitter (@misallaneous1).
