On a more serious note, Wendy might run for office again in the future, and she's also organizing a women's equality initiative. She'll also be speaking this weekend at 2015! We chat about all that, plus what feminism looks like in 2015. Joe Gross pops in to talk about highlights from the Austin Film Festival, and we Toast to Billy On The Street, The Heart podcast, and Flip the Script. Check us out!
Soundcloud for audio-only peeps:
This week, Graham Williams and Ian Orth from Fun Fun Fun Fest join us to talk about this year's event, including how some of the reunion acts get booked and how the Funderdome will change the ticketing process. We also have a special new video of the fest's taco cannon in action you won't want to miss.
Also on the show, Joe Gross and producer Alyssa Vidales break down the new Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens trailer. Social media editor Eric Webb defends millennials (a term, by the way, that he hates).
And in A Toast, we recommend Beasts of No Nation, a great profile of Terry Gross and an upcoming Dance Austin Studio show. Come check it out!
