Greer’s Fall From Grace; Issa Rae on Kanye; & SATC's 20 Yr Anniversary

What does a trailblazer owe us? That’s a question we’re pondering this week, as we discuss actor Issa Rae’s spicy monologue on Kanye West - who many believe is betraying his black identity, in support of Trumpian conservatism - and Germaine Greer’s controversial views on rape. Once a radical second-wave feminist, is she in danger of becoming a parody? Also this week, we discuss the misogyny in social media; the concept of ‘moral triumphalism’; why processed food feels like a cuddle; and the glory of being single. And of course, we also discuss the 20 year anniversary of Sex And The City. Join us on this joyous romp down memory lane!
