The Waves: Gender, Relationships, Feminism

by Slate · · · · 6 subscribers

The Waves, formerly known as the Double X Gabfest, is a weekly conversation about news and culture examined through the lens of gender and feminism. Every Thursday, join the hosts—including Invisibilia co-host Hanna Rosin, New York magazine's Noreen Malone, Slate Podcasts' June Thomas, Slate staff writer Christina Cauterucci, Topic's Anna Holmes, and producer Veralyn Williams—for frank discussions about the ways gender shapes everything. Our new name reflects generations of women from the various waves of feminism, the sound waves that carry us to your ears, and the waves we intend to make.

This Week on The Waves, Hanna, June and Noreen discuss the lawsuit filed by Stephen Elliot against the creator of the “Shitty Media Men” list, Moira Donegan, a hiring algorithm with biases against women and Hanna’s essay on women and power in New York Magazine. Podcast production by Danielle Hewitt. Research Assistance by Alex Barasch. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
