The Waves: Gender, Relationships, Feminism
Can Feminists Visit FBoy Island?
Thursday, 5 August
On this week’s episode of The Waves, Waves producer Cheyna Roth and Slate senior culture editor Allegra Frank take a trip to FBoy Island. They discuss the ups and sexisms of HBO Max’s newest dating show and question why the narrative of women saving men persists. Later in the show, Allegra and Cheyna talk about the deception inherent in these shows and ask why everyone is the same type of beautiful.
Allegra: Keeping your hands busy during the final days of summer with Pokémon UNITE.
Cheyna: The children’s books authors and illustrators Lauren and Natalia O’Hara, especially their book The Bandit Queen.
Podcast production by Cheyna Roth with editorial oversight by Susan Matthews and June Thomas.
