episode 111: FFR 111: The Witcher

This week we journey through the brutal landscape of The Witcher. Probably best known through CD Projekt Red’s video game series, the Netflix adaptation has met with mixed reviews. Join us as we take a look at ways in which fantasy and Patriarchal tropes are presented, reinforced, acknowledged and questioned in a self-aware story that may not be sure on which side it lands. Should you toss a coin to your witcher?



episode 110: FFR 110: The Mandalorian - Season One

We’re back in the Star Wars Universe! In episode 105 of FFR, we wondered after three episodes where all the women were in The Mandalorian. Now that season one is finished, we’re revisiting the spaghetti space western with special guest Jonathan Mann, to jam out to his viral song “Baby Yoda Baby Baby Yoda,” talk about Star Wars deep-lore and our own fan theories for next season, and to weigh in on the representations of women The Mandalorian ultimately offered.



episode 109: FFR 109: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Happy New Year and welcome back to FFR! We’re kicking off the decade with a deep look at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. A cultural phenomenon spanning 40 years, here’s our look at what the final chapter of this space opera delivered, where it delighted, where it disappointed, and who it didn’t represent.



episode 108: FFR 108: Fave Five of the Decade

It’s the end of the decade! And though it was a tough task, we’ve narrowed down all the media from the last 10 years to our fave five in literature, film, music, television and gaming. Stroll with us down memory lane as we revisit the titles that made us reflect, made us feel, and maybe even moved the needle on what media has to say about the world around us.

episode 107: FFR 107: Noelle with The Bechdel Cast

Ho Ho Ho, and Happy Holidays! This week we present the Feminist Frequency x Bechdel Cast Christmas Crossover episode. Jamie Loftus and Caitlin Durante join Anita to discuss the Disney+ movie Noelle, starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader. Is this film an empowering #girlboss take on the holiday film genre? Well, maybe from the perspective of a “woke dad”. Listen in to hear our real thoughts on rule by divine monarchy, holiday puns, and at least 3 things this movie gets right.

episode 106: FFR 106: The Long Kiss Goodnight

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! So join us as we take a stroll down amnesia lane with the 1996 Christmas-set action flick The Long Kiss Goodnight starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson. The film is experiencing something of a critical renaissance of late. Find out what we think of it as we discuss how Samantha Caine fits into the pantheon of female action heroes, the movie’s overall stance on gender politics, and the better movie Ebony sees under the surface of the one we got.

episode 105: FFR 105: The Mandalorian

It’s official: Baby Yoda is our cuteness overlord. This week, Star Wars fan and friend of the podcast Jessica Zollman joins us again as we talk about The Mandalorian. We discuss the show’s wildly skewed gender representation, the fun we had on Twitter for bringing up the show’s wildly skewed gender representation, the power of Baby Yoda, and what we’re liking and not liking about the show after three episodes.

episode 103: EP 103 - Terminator: Dark Fate

Terminator: Dark Fate is the 6th entry in the wibbly-wobbley timey-wimey cinematic universe originally brought to life by James Cameron in 1984. The franchise has taken a lot of detours over the past 35 years — some more successful than others — but the supporting infrastructure of the story has never really changed: sometime in “the future,” “the machines” turn on us and wage an all-out war that leaves billions dead and the planet a devastated wasteland...

EP 102 - Horror Movies & Feminism

With another Hallowe’en behind us we wanted to dive into horror movies. It seems movie-goers have very strong options about horror — love or hate. Horror can also be a contentious genre when viewed through a feminist lens so we decided to bring on our good friend and amazing photographer Jessica Zollman to chat with us about the topic. Jessica is a huge horror fan and spends every october watching one horror movie a day.
