The Killjoy Guide

The Killjoy Guide is the weekly left feminist podcast for the 99%. The mission of this show is to pop the liberal feminist fantasy and get to the root of what left and feminist movements are all about. We discuss politics and pop culture and take a deeper look at intersectional issues to challenge neoliberal narratives and strengthen left and feminist movements. We also interview activists, scholars, journalists, and other allies in left struggle. New episodes premiere every Tuesday. Subscribe so you never miss an episode!
