Backtalk: Hillary, VEEP, and Equal Pay


On Backtalk, hosts Amy Lam and Sarah Mirk discuss top pop culture stories of the week, offering snappy feminist analysis on the issues and people making headlines right now. 

This week, the big news (of course) is that Hils is running for president. Amy and Sarah talk about why they're not looking forward to a year-and-a-half of the political horserace. Then, they discuss why going to Coachella seems like a terrible idea and the lack of female bands at summer music festivals. The show finishes up with a bizarre story about equal pay day

Also on Backtalk, Amy and Sarah highlight one thing they saw, one thing they read, and one thing they heard this week. 

SAW: Amy is all excited about the new season of VEEP, starring Julia Luis-Dreyfus. 

READ: Sarah has been reading the science-of-sex book Come as You Are.

HEARD: We discover Kaki King, who is apparently already a very famous musician.
