Episode 38: How About Nanette?

EAnne and Peggy react to the hottest comedy special on Netflix, Nanette byHannah Gadsby. This comedy special is unique in that it makes you laugh and cry in equal measure. We left feeling uplifted, confused, heartbroken, angry, and basically, everything. She tells a beautiful story of her life and in this episode we delve deeper into the Me Too movement. We also take time to discuss another woman's story, Chloe Dykstra, who detailed in a personal essay the abuses she experienced while dating Chris Hardwick. Also, we are going on a break! We will be back in October! Music in this Episode (an all Aussie line up): Nameless, Faceless by Courtney Barnett Love at First Sight by Kylie Minogue Torn by Natalie Imbruglia Alive by Sia

Episode 35: Vote or Die

EOn Thursday June 7th, do you know where you need to be? You need to be in a voting booth! Well if you are a resident of Ontario, that's where you need to be. If not, just sit back and relax while Ontario tries not to elect another Ford (what the actual fuck). Do you need help finding out your polling station? Go here! Do you need help figuring out what you need to vote? Go here! Do you need help figuring out who to vote for? Go here... Okay, fine, you can go here (but choices matter). Do you think voting is for losers? Go here! Do you want to listen to two defeated feminists talk about the Ontario election? Listen here! That's right Anne and Peggy talk about the rise of Doug Ford (spoiler alert: racism and sexism is involved), the fall of Kathleen Wynne (spoiler alert: sexism and heterosexism is involved), the platforms of the only two parties with a fighting chance (NDP and... PC... I guess), voter information, and finally, coping with a Doug Ford win. Yeah, the last part is depres...

Training Bro: Let's Talk About Aziz

EThe ladies of T.O.FemCo have a new segment called Training Bro, where we talk to boys/men/dudes/bros of all kinds about a particular issue, problem, scandal, question, or whatever. I came up with the idea when I was (very casually) seeing a guy (Paul, a pseudonym) who considered and proudly called himself a "cuter version of Aziz." He is a "creative" who loves pasta, is very cute, aaaaand he's of South Asian descent. When January befell us like the piece of shit month that it is,babe.net published this story from a woman who went on a date with Aziz Ansari and it turned gross. After reading the story I called my boo of the moment and asked him if I could interview him about what it felt like knowing his feminist South Asian icon Aziz had shown his true colours. Luckily, he said yes. If you don't know, Aziz Ansari is a comedian, writer, director and "feminist" known for playing Tom Haverford on NBC's Parks and Recreationand writing, directing and starring in his own Emmy-winning Netf...

Episode 32: Sex Positivity

EWe are thrilled to be back for round 3 of the podcast and are just jazzed, or should I say jizzed, to have you back with us. On this week's show,Anne and Peggy get sexed up and talk about sex positivity. They talk about their own sexual histories of awakenings, explorations, and masturbations. They also talked about how great the new Ontario sex ed curriculum is. Check it out here. As both women were late bloomers, their first experiences with sex and understanding their bodies were all over the place.Talking about sex is hard and there is no one way to do it, just like having sex. We at T.O.FemCo consider ourselves lucky to feel comfortable having, discussing, and learning about sex. That's why this was our first episode of the season.
