Episode 8 - Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud (Part 2)

The best women are unruly ones.

2 years ago

Never fear! We've got a new episode of The Misfit Book Club to help you get through your Thanksgiving holiday. (But, like...don't listen to this one without headphones. Things get a little saucy right off the bat and stay that way. You know you like it.)

This is the discussion episode for Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman by Anne Helen Petersen. We start off with two hilarious stories about Stranger Things and a Maria's really weird massage, then we get into book news [9:50]. We have an awesome Harry Potter tidbit for you gamers out there.

Then we get into the meat and potatoes. Be forewarned: there are spoilers past this point! (Can you spoil a non-fiction book? Unclear.) We offer some general thoughts [12:20] before jumping into our very favorite chapters [14:00]. We also tackle a really hard question: how do you talk to people who are antagonistic toward feminism about feminism? We offer our suggestions [45:40], but we'd love to hear yours, too.

And of course, we share your answers to our book club Instagram questions [38:50]!

Keep listening to the end so you don't miss the announcement of December's book pick! We think you're going to be really, really excited about this one.

So plug in those headphones, turn up the volume, and enjoy!
