World’s most errant podcast friend here! So sorry to have disappeared. I was binging S-Town and then avoiding podcasts for a while after that because anything related to Sarah Koenig makes me mad about season 2 of Serial and grumpy that we still don’t have season 3!
But I’m back! And ready to share with you some more audio goodness (I’ll save my rant about Serial for another time).
This week I want to bring your attention to the excellence that is Another Round.
On this show, hosts “Heben Nigatu and Tracy Clayton cover everything from race, gender and pop culture to squirrels, mangoes, and bad jokes.” And in a word, it is delightful. I generally avoid listening to this in public because I end up laughing so loudly that I get weird looks from people near me.
It is clear that everyone on the show, hosts and guests alike, are enjoying themselves (and it’s not just because of the bourbon). The segment “pew pew pew” (finger guns included) is the perfect showcase of the hosts’ easy banter and silliness.
So, Feministas, I highly recommend Another Round. Because sometimes we all need to be that woman laughing loudly to herself in public.
