If you’re tired of listening to men talk politics—and let’s be real, who isn’t?—Season of the Bitch is the leftist, intersectional podcast you probably need. With a rotation of six hosts (the coven) and guests including author and organizer Jane McAlevey and author and poet Chavisa Woods, Season of the Bitch aims to highlight voices of those who aren’t cis men.
The podcast, which has now been going strong for over a year, is full of witchy feminist goodness, with topics including Mental Health Under Capitalism, Sex Work and Solidarity, Women of Color in Academia, and Feminists of the Animal Kingdom. The hosts chat about current political and societal issues, history, and culture.
“People shouldn’t be scoffed at for not knowing information – they should be given the information, and given support in understanding that information. You’d think this would be more commonplace, especially among leftists,” said Laura Kerrigan, one of the show’s hosts. “Everyone has had a journey to get to whatever level of leftism they’re currently at – it takes work and dedication. So why was it so revolutionary to make leftism not only inclusive, but also accessible?”
Inclusivity is a hallmark of SotB, and though the coven is quick to clarify cis men are welcome and encouraged to listen to, learn from, and enjoy the podcast, the focus on female, nonbinary, and/or trans voices is a unique one—and is much needed and underrepresented, even in socialist, leftist spaces.
