Popaganda Episode: Best Of Our Stories About Activism


As we’re taking a break from making new Popaganda episodes during July, we’re sharing four favorite stories on activism from our archives. First off, listen to an interview with comedian (and new political podcast host!) Hari Kondabolu. Then, we highlight an interview with problematic animal rights group PETA and a collection of real-life stories from Hollywood with “Shit People Say to Women Directors.” The show ends with an essay by Tasha Fierce on Black Lives Matter and the role Black women have played in protest movements


Oregon State University is proud to be a longtime sponsor of Bitch Media and our podcasts. If you’ve loved listening to Popaganda, you may want to consider continuing these discussions with an online degree in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from Oregon State University.

Good work recycling old

Good work recycling old features with updated context and comment. Appreciate the effort to make something that was enjoyable to listen to again.


Thanks for the nice note, Christian! We’ll be back in August with really great new episodes, too!
