What the f Presents:
Editor in Chief Natalie Brennan and Assistant Editor Stina Perkins explore systems of oppression and power in What the F's first podcast: Blunt History. The show documents the history of the war on crime and drugs, told, well, bluntly! Blunt History aims to provide insight on how women fit into the history of criminalization in America. At the same time, it seeks to broaden the definition of feminism to make clear that systems of domination and oppression are inherently feminist issues. At least, that's the type of feminism we support at What the F!
