Backtalk: Toxic Diet Culture Targeting Kids

This week, Dahlia and Amy talk about Kurbo, a weight loss app for children.

Popaganda: Stovetop Social Justice

The Los Angeles-based organization Miry’s List has been supporting thousands of individuals and hundreds of families resettling as refugees in the United States since 2016.  

Backtalk: Back to School

This week, Dahlia and Amy get into the back-to-school season.

Popaganda: Puff, Puff, Progress

In this week’s episode, Carmen Rios talks to a slew of “puffragettes” fighting to end the drug war, foster a more equitable cannabis industry, and forge a feminist future in weed.  

Backtalk: The Power of the People

This week, Dahlia and Amy dig into the mass protest movements across the globe. From Puerto Rico to Portland, Oregon, people are showing up to have their voices heard en masse, demonstrating that the power of people to bring down oppressive systems is inspiring and necessary. 

Popaganda: Feminism beyond Burnout

Carmen Rios is challenging listeners to envision a feminism beyond burnout—and commit to making it possible.

Backtalk: This is What White-Supremacist Terrorism Looks Like

This week, Dahlia and Amy are heartbroken over the spate of mass murders at the hands of white men with assault weapons. They talk about the importance of naming the acts of violence as white supremacist terrorism and how marginalized people across all communuties are left vulnerable. Plus, we take a moment to celebrate the life and work of Toni Morrison, whose words and stories have forever shifted how we understand our world—for the better.

Popaganda: Let’s Talk about (Talking About) Sex

In the midst of the #MeToo movement, it’s clear that we’ve all still got a lot of work left to do to change the conversations we’re having around desire and sexuality.

Backtalk: A Racist by Any Other Name

This week, Dahlia and Amy agree it’s about time for mainstream media organizations to label racists as racists. Recently, Trump tweeted to four congresswomen of color that they should go back to where they came from and accused them of being un-American. While his vile tweets were unsurprising, it was unexpected to see a national news outlet like NPR finally label it as racist. Language matters and it’s important to use the right words to describe despicable people.

Popaganda: 20 Years of Girl Power

We look back on the impact of the Spice Girls as they embark on their reunion tour—and examine whether the ’90s promises of girl power have come to pass.

Backtalk: Recasting a Disney Princess

This week, Dahlia and Amy talk about the live-action casting for Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Halle Bailey was announced as Ariel in the upcoming film and many racists cried it would be inaccurate to have Black mermaid in this classic story. Why is it so important for viewers to see a young Black woman be cast as a Disney princess?
