Feminist Podcasts

Some of the following were already on my list, and I will be adding the others to give them a try. In case you, too, were looking for some feminism on your iPod (other mp3 players are available), check these podcasts out. Some of them are not explicitly feminist, or do not call themselves feminist, but they are ones which are considered feminist by at least some listeners. They are in no particular order.

We have also had our very own podcast in the past, and you can check out episodes one, two and three.

Other podcasts I found through google search rather than anyone’s recommendation, are:

Thanks to @famousblue, @AngryMalayWoman and @LittleSpy amongst others for their recommendations. If you know of any other feminist podcasts, let us know in the comments!

I guess I wanna plug in the podcast I make with Avery Dame, Queers with Beers.


You can also find us on iTunes and subscribe!

It probably doesn’t come up in google searches of ‘feminism’ because it’s not in the show description. Basically each of our episodes has two parts: the trans/femi/queer segment in which we talk trans*, feminist or queer issues, and the geek segment in which, well, we talk comics, anime, film, videogames, etcetera.

We are up once a month, and our episodes are around the 1 hour mark, so it’s not a massive investment. Episode 4: The Podcast Queers Deserve, But Not The Podcast They Need is up right now. In our first segment we talk trans* video blogs, and our geek segment is all about Batman!

I’ve just been told of two more:

Agenda – which is an organisation “to give women a forum and a voice to articulate their needs towards transforming unequal gender relations in South Africa.”

and Women Space Identity – which “seeks to cast a spotlight on the challenges faced by women and girls in poverty-stricken localities.”

Quite late to the party – but thanks for the link :) I know you didn’t verify that you listened or (more importantly!) enjoyed the podcast.. but indeed it is a podcast with a feminist perspective.
