The Bad + Bitchy Podcast is a society and culture podcast that provides a critical analysis of politics, current events and pop culture from an intersectional feminist perspective.
Recorded in Ottawa, Ontario and founded in 2017, Bad + Bitchy was started by three friends who decided to record their conversations on feminism and social injustice and publish them for the world. Since then, the Bitches have written for a number of publications, make regular appearances on TV and radio, and provide equity and inclusion services for companies.
Listening to Bad + Bitchy podcast may result in uproarious laughter, a generalized raging at our systems, and the desire to do something — anything — to make this world a better place; not just for white women, but the entire spectrum of folks who don’t identify as an old white dude.
