Episode 3.28 Living a Feminist Life with Sara Ahmed

Content warning for discussions of cancer and death.

This episode is an absolute dream come true: I spent a full hour talking to Sara Ahmed about feminism. Can you believe it??? Our conversation focused on Sara’s most recent book, Living a Feminist Life (pictured in this photo!). We talked about public scholarship, practical versus theoretical approaches to feminism, finding your people, sustaining your killjoy spirit, and so much more. The conversation gave me some definite feelings, and I hope it does the same for you. Also, links:

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.  Sara’s theme song is “Thick Skin” by Leona Lewis.

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.

  1. Hello Hannah,
    I work for ONE, an international NGO focused on ending extreme poverty and preventable diseases (one.org). We’re hosting an event in Vancouver next month and we’re reaching out to see if you’re available to MC the event. Please email me so I can send you the details.
    Thank you.
