On the Rag: Everything you’ve ever wanted to ask Clementine Ford

November 27, 2018

A very special episode with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop

They said it couldn't be done. They said we couldn't get Clementine Ford back to do another pod. But we did, and here it is. Promoting her new book Boys Will Be Boys, Clementine spends an hour in The Spinoff studio to answer everything you've ever wanted to know about feminism, the patriarchy, and dealing with goblins and/or trolls.

What is toxic masculinity? How does she feel about ACT kicking up a stink about her? And what does "boys will be boys" really mean in 2018? Pour yourself a glass of strong something and get involved with the official hashtag #otrpod, or click here to like us on Facebook.

On the Rag: Man meatballs, royal greetings and hairy legs

November 2, 2018

Listen to Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Madeleine Chapman tackle the past month in women, news and popular culture, with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop

This month Madeleine Chapman steps in for Michele A'Court as we dissect the October in womanhood. The fancy royal couple were here for a bit, the government is finally pushing abortion reform along and one Otago girls' school is finally wearing the pants. In sporting news, Black Ferns merch is still incredibly hard to come by – unless you are Trevor Mallard.

Beyond that, we share our favourite things to watch and read this month, confess to our feminist sins and talk about the perils of shaving our legs for the summer months. Head to our Facebook page for a chance to win Boys Will Be Boys by Clementine Ford and enjoy The Women’s Bookshop bestsellers for October below.

For even more literary goodness, snap yourself up a ticket for Ladies Litera-tea in November. We might see you there!

On the Rag: September was a month of suffrage and sins

October 2, 2018

Listen to Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Michele A’Court tackle the past month in women, news and popular culture, with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop

September was a huge month for women both in New Zealand and elsewhere, as we celebrated 125 years of suffrage and watched our Prime Minister hold her baby in the UN's general assembly. There were also things that weren't so great – Leighton Smith whinged a lot and the Brett Kavanaugh saga ripped open some painful wounds once more.

Beyond that, we share our favourite things to watch and read this month, confess to our feminist sins and look at the best Twitter clap backs by our favourite women. Head to our Facebook page for a chance to win The Sound of Breaking Glass by Kirsten Warner, and enjoy The Women’s Bookshop bestsellers for September below.

On confusing witch hunts and falling in love

March 29, 2018

This month on On the Rag, we’ll be stirring the cauldron and murmuring about witch hunts, lighting a candle for the plight of the old white man and falling in love with New Zealand’s finest love stories. How many bad cartoons can one dude do in a month? Why is everyone terrified about #MeTooNZ? And why is someone lodging a complaint against Julie Anne Genter for stating the facts? 

Beyond that, we make our own bad feminist confessions, share our useful tips for surviving in the world and gush over Michele's new book about falling (and staying) in love. Head to our Facebook page for a chance to win How We Met.
