Episode 2.15: Complaining About Your Crummy Week with Friends

I don’t know about you but I’m having a crummy week and I really didn’t feel like recording a minisode and Kaarina suggested that we could just chat about our crummy weeks instead so we did that. We talk about complaining, and cats, and roller derby, and barbershop, and teaching, and mentorship, and Glow, and just a whole bunch of things, and here are some links:

  • We talk a little bit about the pleasures of complaint, but did you know that brilliant feminist scholar Sara Ahmed has written extensively about the feminist complaint? I’ll probably do a whole minisode on this at some point, but in the meantime, you can start reading here.
  • Read this if you want to know more about the Toronto attack and the ideology behind it. Content warning for violence and misogyny.
  • If you would like to see my enormous chorus in action, here are our semi-finalsand finals packages from Internationals in Vegas last year.
  • Kaarina mentions Notes from a Feminist Killjoy, which you should definitely read if you haven’t yet!
  • Great job. Now let’s all watch this trailer for Unfinished Song and cry.


The podcast theme song is “Mesh Shirt” by Mom Jeans off their album “Chub Rub.” Listen to the whole album here or learn more about them here. Follow me @hkpmcgregor, follow Kaarina @kaarinasaurus, and tweet about the podcast using #SecretFeministAgenda.
