episode 163: FFR 163: Made for Love

Arrogant tech bros cruelly disregarding privacy and the boundaries of decency in worship of their own genius (and as the world cheers on) has become a modern horror staple (e.g...



episode 162: FFR 162: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

Following the success of WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is the MCU’s latest attempt to handle tough topics in a weekly action series, but does it manage to be more than propaganda? Listen in as Anita, Ebony, and Carolyn dive into a heated discussion of how a show framed as opening a new era for Captain America mostly reinforces the status quo.



episode 161: FFR 161: Left-Reading Media: When you want it to be Progressive

When all your faves are problematic, it may be tempting, or even natural, to tease out progressive politics or disruptive readings within media which on the surface seems to support the status quo...



episode 160: FFR 160: Concrete Cowboy

On this episode of the Feminist Frequency Podcast, Ebony is back in the saddle and leading the charge, hosting our discussion of the new Netflix film Concrete Cowboy, from first-time director Ricky Staub and starring Idris Elba, Lorraine Toussaint, and Stranger Things’ Caleb McLaughlin. While we can agree that Idris Elba and Method Man in cowboy hats is a good thing, our opinions diverge from there. Who’s take do you agree with? Listen in to find out.

episode 158: FFR 158: Minari

Today on the podcast we’re joined by Special Guest Walter Chaw, film critic for Film Freak Central, to discuss writer/director Lee Isaac Chung’s semi-autobiographical film MINARI, which despite being about an American family pursuing a version of the American Dream, controversially won Best Foreign Language Film at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards. Listen in as we discuss how this beautifully authentic film insightfully approaches a particular American experience through the story of the Yi family.

episode 157: FFR 157: Run Lola Run

We asked our patrons to pick a time loop film for us to discuss and they have spoken! FFR is headed back to the late 90s to take a look at the propulsive German thriller, RUN LOLA RUN. The film has endured for over 20 years as both an influential movie and cultural reference point, with its unrelenting visual and narrative pace. Join us as we revisit the story of fire-engine-red-headed Lola (played by Franka Potente) and her desperate run through Berlin to save her feckless boyfriend.
