Feminist Institutions in Transition

We’re not saying Feminist Book Club is as culturally important to the Western world as The Golden Girls, but we’re also not not saying that. In this episode, you’ll hear FBC founder Renee chat with Executive Director Sally about some of the struggles selecting our books of the month. Then you’ll hear Ashley review a little known Golden Girls spinoff called The Golden Palace.

Trials and Tribulations of Selecting FBC Books of the Month (1:47)

If you’re just a podcast listener, you may not realize Feminist Book Club is a real book club! We have a subscription service where you can join us and receive our non-fiction and fiction picks every month in the mail or via audiobooks. That may seem straightforward, but it recently dawned on Renee just how complicated the process is while she was training Sally to be our new Executive Director.

The Golden Palace is a Golden Sitcom (23:37)

Then Ashley talks about The Golden Palace, the spinoff to the sitcom The Golden Girls, and why the show cements itself as a comedic gold mine. Check out Ashley’s blog article about Designing Women here.

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
