    Caitlin Moran is a London-based columnist, author, and broadcaster, who is one of the funniest feminist writers working today. Her first  book, the 2011 memoir, How to Be a Woman, was an instant New York Times bestseller. And her 2014  autobiographical coming-of-age novel, How to Build a Girl, was adapted into a film starring Beanie Feldstein that premiered in 2019. 

    When Moran finished How to Be a Woman in her mid-30s, she thought she had everything figured out. But now, 10 years later, she’s debuting  a whole new memoir, More Than a Woman, that asks new probing questions—with a wink and a smirk—that get to the heart of mid-life gender inequity. In this LOL episode of BUST’s Poptarts podcast, we talk a LOT about vaginas and vulvas, she reveals what it was like to live next-door to Morrissey, and we get real about the unpaid labor shitshow that awaits women after their 30s.

    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.

    Join the coven every Friday for a new episode—including some extra-witchy topics just in time for the spooky season—and keep in touch on SotB’s websiteFacebookTwitterInstagram, and Patreon
