On Backtalk, Bitch editors Amy Lam and Sarah Mirk talk about this week in feminist and pop culture. On the docket this week: The surreal brilliance of Black Mirror, a show that forces us to think about the way technology shapes our emotional lives. Then, we talk about the role race places in the treatment of the protesters at Standing Rock compared to the recent acquittal of seven militia members who staged an armed takeover of federal land in Eastern Oregon last spring. Plus: People who think Hillary Clinton is a literal demon.
On each episode, we share one thing we saw, read, and heard this week.
