Real feminism for real women

I’m so happy that this podcast exists. Women have been fed lines about “feminism” that centers men and their desires for too long. Real change will only happen when more women like Meghan Murphy start standing up and saying NO to the patriarchy. Real feminism calls for the liberation of women, anything else is patriarchy in a mask. Thank you Meghan.

Truly Thought Provoking

I've listened to a wide range of feminist and so-called feminist podcasts, and this is truly one of the most original, challenging, and thought provoking ones out there. FC is not for those looking to sit in an echo chamber; it is for those looking to peer into the dark corners with clear eyes, for those looking to challenge themselves with brave intellectual honesty, and most of all, those looking for dangerous feminist intelligence. Radical in the best and most classical of senses. This podcast makes me a better and more thoughtful person.

Great Feminist Podcast

This is one of the best feminist podcasts (and I recommend website too)! Meghan Murphy is a great interviewer, and interviewees address pressing feminist issues of today - prostitution, knowledge of women's bodies, male violence, etc. No third-wave nonsensical babble here! Just straight-up feminist analysis and critique.

A very masculine podcast

Masculine egos and energy unleashed to no end. I wasn’t aware ciswomen are being denied the able to present and exist as feminine or do so with the tangible threat of violence. Also nothing more feminine than aligning with far-right ideology to systematically deny transwomen sovereignty and existence

Great podcast

I support this podcast bcs it truly puts womyn born womyn BACK into the center of feminism. Gender is fluid—my wife is butch and I’m femme with an attitude. But BIOLOGY doesn’t budge. Those of us born female—and to my WOC sistahs I know you hear this—have always known that if it doesn’t exist we must create it and we have. I understand that m2f trans folk definitely have it hard. The violence against them is unspeakable. But until they understand womyn’s herstory, they will never understand that just because you want a thing doesn’t mean it’s yours; doesn’t mean you can just take it. THAT behavior IS the typical male, colonizer bs that keeps fueling the patriarchy. We do need to fight in unison. But we name ourselves. We will not be renamed by the trans community. I understand why trans women would want to be in XX womyn only spaces—they’re amazing. I hope through FC the trans women learn why those particular spaces aren’t for them. Indeed if there was an awesome music festival for the Trans community only, I would respect it and understand my place as an ally rather than a member.

At last

In a world where women are killed, maimed, beat, raped, robbed, burned, objectified, harassed, disenfranchised, underpaid, overworked, underrepresented, ignored, controlled, enslaved, forced to give birth, erased, relabeled, untreated, abandoned and silenced it is a relief to finally have a truthful discussion about real feminism.

Megan you’re the BEST

I love Megan’s wit and intelligence and her unapologetic views on truth. The one star reviews by individuals who cannot stand that everything isn’t about their precious ladypeen are hilarious. That’s how you know it’s real feminism. Thanks for fighting the good fight.

A great podcast for women

It’s so refreshing to listen to a podcast where it isn’t heretical to say women have vaginas.

Feminism doesn’t need to exclude any women

Sad to see a gender binary and gender essentialism passed off as feminism anywhere. Trans women are women, and lesbians are also marginalized. Both can be true. Wish we could hear about ways to both protect trans women, and protect lesbians, without putting these groups against each other. Both/And is the way forward.

It isn’t very intersectional

It doesn’t seem very in depth informed. It also seems like it’s borderline TERF-y... alright stuff but I feel like it could improve it’s inculsiveness

Yikes

In a world where trans women are murdered merely for existing, this transphobic garbage is not only nonsense, it's dangerous. Trans women are women.

Sanity in a frustrating world

Hands down the best feminist podcast available. Great interviews and doesn’t cater to progressive men in “Girl Power” t-shirts.

Always thought provoking

Meghan consistently puts out fascinating interviews, and she does great at giving her guests space to talk without interrupting or peppering them with questions. The wide variety of topics she covers is a bonus. Things I’ve never wondered about to current events to prominent women or activists sharing their history and experiences. Information about the origins of Take Back the Night & the interview about the lesbian church were some favorites of mine so far.

Thought provoking listening

I am not Megan’s target audience. As I am an AfAm conservative. I became aware of her when Benjamin Boyce interviewed her. So I saw a few of her YouTube videos and looked for her podcast so I wouldn’t be stuck looking at a screen. I find her style approachable as she has introduced concepts and people I normally wouldn’t have sought out myself.Do I agree with her worldview? Nope. But she’s calm and seeking in a way that makes me want to hear her out.

Real feminism

Feminism from a radical perspective and not just more of the echo chamber you see in most media and academia. Only little complaint is the outro music - doesn’t fit the podcast and goes wayyy too long. Using the intro music would be better.

Ugh

It’s disappointing and gross to listen to a podcast by a person who can’t even use the term TransWomen. I didn’t realize who this host was or what she believed until the most recent podcast about sex segregated sports. I guess “radical” feminist these days believe it’s acceptable to police who and what a woman is. Seems like the host is using the age old misogynistic tool of making arbitrary rules as to who is allowed to identify as a woman. Don’t listen, check out other feminist podcasts that have better structure and content; and also are inclusive of all women and femmes. If you want to listen to Women talk about athletics, who actually work in the industry, check out Burn It All Down.

Best feminist podcast!

I especially love hearing from radical feminists. I loved the one on pornography. I feel like porn keeps men constantly thinking of women as sex objects instead of human beings. It’s part of keeping women “in their place” to act like her sexuality and appearance is the most important thing about her. I have been abused in these ways when I used to believe that message about myself. Thank you radical feminism! It changed my life! She is a great interviewer and I appreciate the guests she has on her podcast.
