Episode 88: Gun Crazy

Why is American popular culture so fascinated with guns? In this episode, Maya and Rebecca examine how the gun industry created a culture of fascination and romance around their products, and how the gun lobby in turn used that culture to inform pro-gun propaganda.

Episode 87: Diversity vs. Tokenism

Lately we’ve seen an encouraging increase in diverse representation on screen. Or have we? Could apparent diversity really just be tokenizing? How can we tell the difference? Maya and Rebecca are joined by writer, filmmaker, and podcaster Kieran Scarlett to tackle these and other thorny questions about Hollywood, streaming networks, inclusivity and tokenism.

Episode 86: Return of the Douchebags!

Men taken down by #MeToo are trying to come back! Should we let them? Maya and Rebecca consider Aziz Ansari’s latest stand up special, Mark Halperin’s recent book, and Al Franken’s strange New Yorker redemption narrative. We also take apart people’s very telling reactions to Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide and Nicole Hannah Jones’ #1619 project.


The Sauce is a podcast featuring two know-it-all feminists.

Rebecca Cohen creates the webcomic The Adventures of Gyno-Star: Fighting the Forces of Evil and Male Chauvinismwhich is… exactly what it sounds like. She also writes a lot, but mostly less than 280 characters at a time.

IMG_4732.jpgMaya Gurantz makes art, writes, and brainwashes – er, teaches – young impressionable minds. She likes long road trips in the American West, 70s cinema, and getting angry about the patriarchy.  Don’t get her started (please, get her started). More at mayagurantz.com.
