In this new mission statement episode, Gina & Barnaby are confronted with some uncomfortable assumptions of what it means to be a feminist.

They take it to the streets to explore some popular beliefs, and answer a listener's question on the future of humanity, the future of Vagitators podcast, and what was it again? Ah yeah, the meaning of feminism.

Episode Five - Pygmalionx

December 30, 2020

In Episode Five, Gina & Barnaby share an afternoon with the fabulously resilient Heather Hudyma and listen to the story of her venture into a completely new field, and her quest for someone, anyone, that could share their methods and tools to succeed in a industry she feel truly passionate about improving, and making more accessible.

 

Mentorship, very much like dictatorship is above all a job description. How to make this job work for most, outside of the OWG tropes? This is what we explore in this episode.

Episode Two - Passing in the Age of Web 2.0

Episode Two - Passing in the Age of Web 2.0

December 9, 2020

Gina & Barnaby invite Janus Roth, a seemingly mediocre Neukölln twitter user, to talk about a Vivian Gornick quote that Janus tweeted back in January 2020.

But as the smoke screens of Web 2.0 dissipates, it turns out that their guests is not who they originally appeared to be.

Did Janus purposefully pass themselves as someone they're not? Did G & B get catfished? But more importantly, why?
