A good list of 12 femme-driven latinx podcasts that you should get in your weekly rotation.
“The myth of the male bumbler” — SHOTS FIRED
“Allow me to make a controversial proposition: Men are every bit as sneaky and calculating and venomous as women are widely suspected to be. And the bumbler — the very figure that shelters them from this ugly truth — is the best and hardest proof.”
