Welcome back! I missed you! I think you’re great! I think this podcast is great! And in keeping with the sheer exhilaration I am experiencing at the beginning of season 3, I’m going to tell you about a movie that holds a very special place in my heart. In fact, it was deeply formative in my thinking about feminism. That’s right, it’s obviously Jurassic Park. Want to read more hot takes on this 25-year-old movie? HERE YOU GO:
- Feminists everywhere love Jurassic Park so you should go read Lindy West’s brilliant recap, which contains many excellent gifs.
- Do you remember The Toast‘s “if x were your girl/boyfriend” series? Well their archives are back up, which means you can read “If the Velociraptor from Jurassic Park Were Your Girlfriend,” which is exactly as good as it sounds.
- I don’t talk at all about the technology behind Jurassic Park in this episode, but the dinosaurs are VERY COOL and here’s an article about the histories of dinosaurs in film.
The podcast theme song is “Mesh Shirt” by Mom Jeans off their album “Chub Rub.” Listen to the whole album here or learn more about them here. Follow me @hkpmcgregor, follow Kaarina @kaarinasaurus, and tweet about the podcast using #SecretFeministAgenda.
Secret Feminist Agenda is recorded and produced by Hannah McGregor on the traditional and unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.

You dyed your hair brown (which is fab). You also appear to have replaced your right eye with a glowing green crystal. 🙂 Love it!!
You requested that any Chicago-based listeners let you know if they would be interested in a Chicago meet-up in early January. I am not a Chicago-based listener, but it is possible, depending on what day of the week and when in January you’re talking about, that I could go to Chicago and pretend to be one, which I would totally do! (If you’d like to also come to Massachusetts and do a meet-up here, that would be cool too.)
I am a Chicago-based listener and I would be very much interested in a meetup if it happens!
Hi Hannah! A few days after I listened to this episode I came across this and I thought you might appreciate the ridiculousness:
A friend who loves the podcast (and helped me plan my wedding, which included walking down the isle to the Jurassic Park theme and our ring bearer wearing a big T-Rex head) told me I would love this, and she was 100% correct.
I’d also like to note that, when the Park comes back online, it’s not one of the adult men who fixes things, but a pre-teen vegetarian girl (who doesn’t know the sad knows about where jello comes from yet). Tim stands around behind her while she reboots the Park’s systems, no matter how many times I yelled atthe screen for him to hand the gun to Ellie. Tech has only gotten more hostile for people like me, but for a long time, Lex made me feel like I could have space in early video game culture, when it had only been something I quietly observed before (except for the times I beat the pants off my brother in Street Fighter).
I am a near-Chicago-based listener and would absolutely travel there for a meet-up given enough notice!
Hey Hannah! I just finished season 2 and went to start season three but it seems that the option to download episodes 3.1 to 3.7 have been disabled. I could download from 3.8 onwards.
Let me know if its just me though?
Whoops, I didn’t think anyone actually listened to it this way so I haven’t been hugely consistent about the download links! I’ll fix it ASAP, but in the meantime you can download the episodes from any podcasting app!
