Real talk with feminist visionaries.
Radicals & Revolutionaries Lab is an intersectional, international, and intergenerational podcast with feminist visionaries. Secrets are had and shared in conversation with revolutionaries and innovators engaged in distinctly unapologetic feminist work. The R&R Lab unearths those nuggets of truth hidden just under the surface, begging to be noticed. We dive deeply into animating questions at the center of our feminist life; exploring the complexity and nuance that emboldens our listeners to engage in new ways of seeing, defining, and being feminists.
01. Kate Kelly
In 2013, Ordain Women was founded to advocate for women’s ordination in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Within a few years, the group included thousands of activists, many of whom had never before taken action, and sparked a conversation that required church members as well as leadership to confront gender inequality within the institution. Kate Kelly is the woman behind it all. She grew up somewhat orthodox, served a mission for the church, and was later excommunicated in a fairly public way. In between it all, Kate became a human rights lawyer and is now a legal fellow at Columbia Law School’s Human Rights in the U.S. Project. She is fierce and outspoken about her commitment to women’s rights as human rights, which of course makes me love Kate even more. You can find Kate on Twitter at @Kate_Kelly_Esq.

02. Joanne Wilson
Joanne Wilson is the powerbitch of all powerbitches. She started her career in retail, moved to the media side of the technology industry, and is now an investor following what she calls the female founder thesis; meaning, women founders tend to be great investment opportunities because they are tenacious and thorough, both asking questions and listening. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again … I want to be Joanne Wilson when I grow up. You can find Joanne on Twitter at @thegothamgal. Learn more about Continuum at continuumcollective.org.
