Once upon a time, Carmen Maria Machado met a woman who was beautiful and smart and funny and (amazingly, to Carmen) wanted to be her girlfriend. They got together, and at first, it was everything Carmen had been waiting for... and then things started to change. We spoke to Carmen about her new memoir, In the Dream House, and her search for more women with stories like hers.
Jenny Slate never had stage fright at all... then suddenly, in her late 20s, she did. In this episode the comedian, actress, and author of the new book Little Weirds tells us about feeling like she was losing the thing she most loved.

Your Driver is Here

Your Driver is Here

2019-10-1547:1012

When Alison called a Lyft after a night out with friends, she was looking for a quick ride home. Instead, she was driven across state lines, to a park — and the next morning, she woke up with no memory of what had happened there. Two years later, she's still looking for the truth about that night. On this week's show, Alison tells her story.
Ben Lerner is not known for freestyling. He's known for writing novels (also poems). But as a kid growing up in Topeka, Ben was deep in a world of male anger—anger that found outlets in debate championships, drunken fistfights, and, yes, also white-guy rap battles. And while Ben was growing up, his mom, Harriet Lerner, was navigating a world of anger, too. In this episode, Ben and Harriet talk about how their family's life shaped Ben's new novel, The Topeka School.
This week, we want to know: What does it ACTUALLY feel like to be pregnant? We asked women to tell us what they didn't expect when they were expecting... and we heard about everything from extra nipples to extreme horniness to the benefits of being a pregnant war correspondent. With Rukmini Callimachi, Angela Garbes, and many more.
Bad Man Season

Bad Man Season

2019-09-2429:305

It’s that time of year again—and this week, we’re re-releasing one of the first episodes we ever made. It’s all about what happens when women’s whisper networks become visible... which happened on a bathroom wall at Brown in the 1990s, and in our own inboxes two years ago.
When sperm donation first became widespread, it was supposed to stay a secret. That didn’t happen. Here’s what did...Featuring crazy coincidences, heartwarming reunions, sister moms, turkey baster twins, and a stadium full of siblings.
Rebecca Traister checks her phone first thing in the morning: It's always full of bad news, but that bad news is her job, and she wants to know what she's getting into right away. On today's episode, Traister — the politics writer for New York Magazine and the Cut — tells us how she gets it all done, from profiling presidential candidates to constantly reminding her four-year-old to "PEE AND BRUSH!"  Also included: The secret to running. (It's walking.)
An episode all about anxiety—from panicky thought-spirals to private self-soothing techniques. Featuring Aparna Nancherla, Jenny Odell, Sarah Wilson, our extremely anxious colleague Ruth Spencer, and many more.
Eve L. Ewing has spent years living in Chicago, working in Chicago, and thinking about Chicago — she knows the place. Then she found an 800-page document that changed the way she saw her hometown. On this week's show, Eve tells us the story of what happened in Chicago in the summer of 1919. Eve's book, 1919, is out now.
By the time Toni Morrison died last week, a whole generation of readers had come of age in a world where she was already a legend. So, on this week’s show, we’re talking to women about growing up with Morrison’s books—how they first discovered her work, and what it’s meant to them over the years. Featuring: Brittany Luse, Zoe Haylock, Aminatou Sow, Glory Edim, Kaitlyn Greenidge, Angela Flournoy, and Ashley C. Ford.
Elizabeth Warren has spent most of her career as a teacher. Before she faced off with a stage full of opponents for the Democratic nomination, she was facing off with a room full of rowdy 5th graders intent on cutting each other's hair. So what would it mean to have a teacher-in-chief? On this week's episode, Rebecca Traister pays Warren a visit to talk about her life in the classroom (and drink tea on her sun porch)—and we call Warren’s students to see what they have to say.
How can you fight back against online abuse? Writers Clementine Ford and Ijeoma Oluo tell us about a few go-to tools, like screenshots, mass-blocking, and the mute button. But what if you don't live your life online — and you’re dealing with a troll who seems to know everything about you? That's what happened to Francesca. Featuring Carrie Goldberg, whose new book Nobody’s Victim: Fighting Psychos, Stalkers, Pervs, and Trolls is out next month.
Tiffany Cabán’s outsider campaign for Queens district attorney could come down to just 16 votes. But Rebecca Traister says this race was thrilling long before it came down to an election night dead heat.  On this week’s show, she talks to Tiffany, and tells us what’s made her candidacy so exciting—and why it matters way beyond Queens.
Brittany Packnett is an activist who rose to prominence after she became a leader of the protests in Ferguson back in 2014. Since then, she’s worked with politicians on the federal and state level on ending police brutality, and was appointed to President Obama’s task force on building relationships between communities and police. Brittany talks with Stella Bugbee about how she gets it all done, including how she decompresses from dealing with the heaviness of her work, travel hacks for the frequent flyer, and her philosophy of activism.

With the heels of my feet on Netflix's, 'THE ACT'. A docudrama tightly based on both an psychological condition, and the reapercussions found in its wake. As well, the insight INTO the disease that effects and affects meeting on the side lines. It's so spooky to hear such similarities from this case in relation to Gypsy Rose's.

Torcherous to listen to does the moderater have the educational background to talk this mother ? Her questions and comments Are so accusatory to this woman it was obvious she was trying to make a miraculous recovery for this woman who just got more guarded and emotional and full of regret for the way she feels as the interview went on. she was relentless with this is how you should feel and do with bad advice. Just interview her not try to fix her you have no idea how obnoxious and superior you come off

Absolutely fantastic episode thank you so much for speaking your truths. As a white woman I vow to never stop listening, advocating and being grateful for how difficult and painful those conversations are for women of colour to have. Thank you
