Episode 460 – Mallory Ortberg and The Handmaid’s Tale

We conclude our two-part conversation series around The Handmaid’s Tale, which you can find in an Audio Drama form over at Secrets, Crimes, and Audiotape. This week, I had the great pleasure of talking to Mallory Ortberg, a writer, culture critic, and advice columnist. She’s Dear Prudence over at Slate, and she used to run a magnificent site called The Toast. In this episode, we discuss:

  • The Handmaid’s Tale and White Feminism
  • How to avoid becoming an Internal Expat
  • Fending off the Republic of Gilead
  • and much, much more!
