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, Amy and Sarah talk about new Daily Show host Trevor Noah and a troubling Cosmo beauty guide. Also, Bitch’s new media intern and resident feminist pro-wrestling fan Ariana Vives tells us all about the women of WrestleMania.

Also on Backtalk, we talk about one thing we saw, one thing we read, and one thing we heard this week. 

SAW: We tried and failed to figure out where to watch the women’s NCAA basketball championship on TV. If you know how to watch the women’s basketball championship on TV or can decipher this horrible PDF, please comment below.
