Every other Thursday, join the hosts—Slate staff writer Christina Cauterucci, Marcia Chatelain of Georgetown University, Thirst Aid Kit's Nichole Perkins, and Slate Podcasts' June Thomas—for frank discussions about the ways gender shapes everything.

Introducing Hi-Phi Nation: For Women Only

Today we're sharing an episode of another Slate podcast we believe will be of interest to listeners of The Waves: Hi-Phi Nation. It is currently very difficult to get your gender legally changed in the U.K, That might change. In recent months, philosophers have been drafted into making complicated and contentious arguments about what it is to be a man, woman, or any other gender, in the service of advancing or blocking the movement for trans rights and recognition. In particular, it has exposed a conflict between trans-rights advocates and a certain wing of feminism, a conflict that in fact has its roots in America in the 1970s. On this episode, Hi-Phi Nation looks at the historical origins of this conflict by looking at a single event involving two women in the '70s, one of whom founded the gender-abolitionist wing of feminism; the other founded transgender studies. That event, and those ideas, help us to understand the stakes and contentiousness today. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Waves Presents: Hit Parade on Madonna

The Waves brings you a 60th birthday tribute to Madonna. In 1998, Madonna was at a career crossroads. After dominating the ’80s with hits like “Like a Virgin” and “Open Your Heart,” she spent the first half of the ’90s wavering between roles as a provocateur (Erotica, Sex) and adult-contemporary balladeer (“I’ll Remember,” “Take a Bow”). That’s when she took a sharp left turn, working with producers and deejays in the burgeoning electronica scene. If it even was a scene: The very term “electronica” was a music-business confection, and by 1997 it was more hype than hit. But the result of Madonna’s experiment—her acclaimed ’98 album Ray of Light—was not only one of her biggest smashes ever. It also helped turn electronic music into viable pop.

BONUS: The Abortions We Don’t Talk About

When Justice Anthony Kennedy, the Supreme Court’s crucial swing vote on many matters, announced his plan to retire last month, it was suddenly clear that Roe v. Wade, the decision guaranteeing a woman’s right to abortion, could be substantially eroded or even overturned. News of Kennedy’s retirement caused many women to consider what life without choice might look like and that a post-Roe America might really come to pass. In the days that followed Kennedy’s announcement, the journalist Cindi Leive published an op-ed in the New York Times called “Let’s Talk About My Abortion (and Yours).” In the 1970s and ’80s, she noted, prominent women told the stories of their abortions—on TV and in the pages of People magazine. But in the decades since, the right to choose has become one that most women exercise silently. The reasons women choose not to talk about their abortions are obvious: It’s a personal decision, made about the interior of our bodies and the consequences of our most intimate acts. And the people who oppose abortion can be vehement and even violent in expressing their objections. But here at Slate, we thought that Cindi Leive had a point: We might better understand what abortion is, and what that right means, if we talked about it more. And so we asked the people who write and podcast for Slate if any of them have abortion stories they’d be comfortable sharing. Six of us do. The women who will tell their stories now are alike in many ways: We’re all journalists of one stripe or another who’ve ended up in Slate’s orbit and felt able to describe our experiences, which means these stories don’t represent all abortions. But one of Cindi Leive’s points was that women you know have had abortions they don’t talk about. If you read our work or listen to our shows, you know us, in a way. Here are the stories we haven’t told you. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
