The Cut

The Cut is a weekly audio magazine exploring culture, style, sex, politics and more. Each week, an ensemble of voices, led by B.A. Parker and Jazmín Aguilera, engage in the conversations that matter most in our current moment. Intimate, provocative, and probing, the Cut aims to ask questions before listeners even know they have them, always with a generous wit and an expansive idea of what is possible. From New York Magazine and The Vox Media Podcast Network. New episodes every Wednesday.

The Cut’s B.A. Parker talks with Moya Bailey and Zeba Blay about the mental health impact of misogynoir and what it means for the future of Black women online.
