    Every Friday, we celebrate unapologetic women who are shaping a future that guarantees gender equality, as they deal with everyday sexism. Our conversations are a mix of perspectives that intersect with pop culture, identity politics, economics and more.

  • Too Long;Should Read (view podcasts)

    The Internet generation is constantly accused of collective ADHD and a correspondingly brief attention span. TL;SR challenges that notion by picking a long (or long-ish!) piece from the buffet of the world wide web and examining its themes and providing context, with weekly guests.
