Until We Get Canceled
- Publisher: The Magdalene
- Total Episodes: 28
This is a talk show by progressive Christians for… well, we don’t care who listens. We want to bring up conversations that we know are happening in a lot of Christian communities and bring them to the forefront, with some levity and our tongues planted firmly in cheek. We know there are a lot of people of faith who support equal rights for everyone, who know that love is love, who believe that #BlackLivesMatter, who want to engage with faith in a different way than their parents did, and who want to replace the Christian patriarchy with a new cult of the sacred feminine led by Ian McKellen — and we want to give those communities a platform. We’re here. We’re tolerant. Get used to it… until we get canceled.
And Nothing Less: The Untold Stories of Women’s Fight for the Vote
- Publisher: PRX
- Total Episodes: 9
“Men their rights and nothing more; women their rights and nothing less.” Written by suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, women’s rights activists used this rallying cry to demand voting equality. But the suffrage movement included far more voices and perspectives than these two well-known names: throughout the fight for women’s right to vote, generations of diverse activists demanded full access to the ballot box. Hosts Rosario Dawson and Retta guide us through this seven-part series, bringing us the stories we didn’t learn in our history books. And Nothing Less is a production of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, the National Park Service, and PRX. It is the official podcast commemorating 100 years of the 19th Amendment and women’s constitutional right to vote.
Democracy in Danger

All over the world, liberal democracy is getting turned upside-down.

Join hosts Will Hitchcock and Siva Vaidhyanathan on Democracy in Danger — a show that puts the illiberal turn in context. Each week Will and Siva, both University of Virginia professors, are joined by leading thinkers to discuss serious threats to government by the people: from the dark web and media disinformation, to climate change, economic inequality and violent extremism.

Think Like A Lady Podcast
- Publisher: Afroze & Dua
- Total Episodes: 23
Welcome to Think Like a Lady! A podcast that enlightens tough issues about a woman’s place in a dominantly man’s world. Our discussions intend to stimulate thought provoking perspectives that are rarely the narrative in mainstream think tanks. From how the age of severe economic inequality has undermined women in the workforce to navigating the intricacies of the early suffragette movements who denied women’s rights to women of color.Let’s face it. Women are awesome. We’re not here to talk about us being awesome as just some empty platitude. We have some staggering data to prove it. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, as of 2019, there are now more women in medical school than men. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Education, women outpaced men in earning bachelor’s degrees by 1982, they earned more master’s degrees than men by 1987, and by 2006 they took up the majority of doctoral degrees conferred in the United States.Ok, but enough of us gloating. It seems that even though we’re just now beginning to dominate on so many frontiers, we’re still putting up with ridiculous challenges. From facing harassment in mosques, churches and other places of worship, and of course the workplace to the pink tax, Dua and Afroze talk about their own microcosmic experiences that lay bear on an intersection between their experiences as Muslim women who grew up with one foot in the west and the other foot in the east. Women have managed to conquer vast and numerous frontiers despite not being given the reigns to pioneer. It’s time we knocked men off of their high horse.
