Jana Hunter has lived many lives when it comes to music - and life in general. After starting out as a solo musician, Hunter has now been working with her band, Lower Dens (on the label Ribbon Music), for eight years. Lower Dens' music has gone through changes, always subtly interrogating the binaries that govern our modern world. Formerly characterized by brooding, corner-lurker tones, Lower Dens' most recent release, Escape from Evil,  is a slight shift towards the candy-like synth riffs of the 80s. Hunter has...

Liza Treyger is one of comedy's rising funny gals. Her smart jokes inspire tear-inducing laughs and sneak in commentary about social issues like feminism and sex education. Glittercheese, Liza's debut Comedy Central album, was released last August and is a compilation of more than six years worth of jokes.

Fuck Heartbreak Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which recognizes the topics of miscarriage and stillbirth that are normally spoken about in hushed tones or ignored because it is easier to pretend like they don’t exist. This month Jessica Zucker, a clinical psychologist specializing in women’s reproductive health, launched a line of pregnancy loss cards to start a louder conversation about the grief that comes with the loss of an expected child. “We live in a culture that fears talking about things that are challenging,” Zucker...

The development of the female characters throughout the course of the show is what I connected to the most. Peggy, Joan, even Betty, they were the reason I tuned in every week (well them and Jon Hamm’s damn gorgeous face). The finale season was especially exciting because it so clearly hinted at the impending Feminist Movement of...
