Does negativity sell as much as sex?
33:17From this conversation, we came to the realisation that we may also be romanticising an era of journalism that no longer exists. In an ever-globalised world, we are continuously aware of what's happening but our media may not be equipped to cover the complexities of such events as the uprising that we are witnessing in Iran. As we continue to be in the 24h news cycle, what is the line between a journalist and a celebrity pundit? And who do we trust to bring us to deliver the news impartially and factually?

Leadership for rent
33:18As two women who identify as the left side of the political aisle, we question why the UK Conservative party has a track record of putting women forward to be elected (unlike the Labour party) and yet these women are constantly set up for failure.When we're in the conversation about women in leadership, we identify that the failings are present in all industries - from politics to porn.ps: please excuse me for calling Megan Markle, Magle.
The gulf between royals and reality
26:44We can acknowledge the magnitude of her leadership and her role as a woman over nine decades - from Winston to Truss. No other leader, let alone a woman has lived through. that tenure.With that said, we cannot overlook the violent colonization by the British Empire of African, Asian and Caribbean nations. A bitter reminder to many of the decades of suffering, and economic and social devastation to many Black, POC, and Irish communities... just to name a few. Now more than ever, the role of the royal family is in question.
Every Tweet has its Truth
30:09It is a very slippery slope to have two separate platforms - one for each ideology (i.e. Twitter and Truth) - whereby we can pretend that the 'other' isn't present and actively so. What does it look like (and take) to be able to listen to the other side? If only to remain informed vs. the very human desire we have to change minds.E-mail: [email protected] www.unapologeticwomen.co
How do you know the earth is round?
29:15Most recently a man by the name of Andrew Tate took the internet by storm mostly because of his falsehoods and our desire for polarizing content. There is an inherent complexity in discussing the likes of Andrew Tate but are there pieces we can all agree with? The reality is that we often don't have the tools or even channels/spaces to have an informed discussion on the topic.E-mail: [email protected] www.unapologeticwomen.co
Why does my vagina bother you?
36:43For our first episode back we started our conversation on the recent media outrage targeted at Finnish Prime Minister, Sanna Marin for being a woman that ‘had the audacity’ to go out on a night out with friends. This story hit a nerve with both of us for many reasons but at its core, it was the double standard.E-mail: [email protected] www.unapologeticwomen.co
Shut up and perform
37:23We acknowledge that this is not a zero-sum game and that it is not a 'male' problem but rather a societal issue. We live in a society that has isolated women to be objects and performers rather than people. This is not a man vs. woman problem - we all have to change the way we think, act, and react.E-mail: [email protected] and/or follow us on Instagram www.instagram.com/unapologeticwomenpodcast/Thanks for tuning in and see you next week.www.unapologeticwomen.co
Why we don't talk about porn?
31:21Important to note that the Hulu documentary did not involve Pamela Anderson in its creation - this is a focal point of our conversation as women are constantly left out of the decision making process even when it is about them.

You don't win arguments with facts
54:42In the episode, we cover a lot of ground. The “high cost associated with changing your mind”, as told by Joe Swinson led us into a discussion on how to accept that humans make mistakes that enable us to grow for the better—worth noting that many “mistakes” highlighted in the media are not mistakes. We also discuss the concept of ‘group think’ and how it can impact the way in which we treat each other. On a daily basis, we engage with individuals however we affiliate them with their group rather than as individuals.Ali, closed us out with a powerful question that we want to pose to you—when was the last time you changed your mind?E-mail: [email protected] and/or follow us on Instagram www.instagram.com/unapologeticwomenpodcast/Thanks for tuning in and see you next week.www.unapologeticwomen.co
