    Feminist Detective - The Case of The Fleabag Crowdfunder

    08/11/2019 Duration: 08min

    Introducing a NEW Inflection Point segment called “Feminist Detective” in which journalist and author Ruth Whippman joins me to seek out sexism in all its tiny guises so we can make big changes. This week we dig up the original crowdfunding page of the mega-hit show Fleabag from back in 2013, and discuss how the tone of it shows us the crazy lengths women have had to go to reassure and placate men that equality is not threatening. This segment premiere is presented ad-free. Support Inflection Point with a tax deductible contribution at bit.ly/inflectionpoint and help fund production of more of them!

    Candace Bushnell Answers: "Is There Still Sex In The City?" Live On Stage

    06/11/2019 Duration: 33min

    Candace Bushnell gave us a reason to sit on our couch every week to soak in the stories of the women--and men--of the 90s television culture-changer "Sex and the City". Candace has written a number of books since then and her newest book is called "Is There Still Sex in the City?" This October I teamed up with Women Lit of the Bay Area Book Festival to have an on-stage conversation with Candace Bushnell, hosted by INFORUM at The Commonwealth Club of San Francisco. Bushnell kicked off the evening with an update about what she’s been up to lately, and then we got to sit down and talk--friendships, love, loss and dating over 50.

    How Stephanie Lepp Makes Room for a Reckoning

    09/10/2019 Duration: 44min

    Stephanie Lepp is the creator and host of a podcast about how people change their hearts and minds-- it’s about people who decided on their own to completely change their world views. It’s about people who took a look in the mirror, and realized they did not like what they saw. How do you do that? Her show is called Reckonings...and it sure feels like our society could use a reckoning right about now. But do things need to change on an individual level first? I invited Stephanie to share what she’s learned about how personal change can lead to positive societal change.

  • Introducing: Work in Progress with Sophia Bush

    Introducing: Work in Progress with Sophia Bush

    18/09/2019 Duration: 05min

    I’m excited to share that a friend of the podcast, Sophia Bush, is launching her own show called “Work in Progress”. On the podcast, you’ll hear frank, funny, personal, professional, and sometimes even political conversations with people who inspire Sophia about how they’ve gotten to where they are, and where they think they’re still going. She's talked to people like Gloria Steinem, Chelsea Handler, Karamo Brown, Jay Shetty, Katie Couric, Whitney Cummings, Jon Favreau, Sen. Gillibrand, Lisa Ling and many more!  It's refreshing to hear that even some of the most successful people out there still feel like a work in progress, and it's interesting to hear what they are still working on within themselves. Sophia's conversations are thoughtful, dynamic, important, and not only will listeners learn more about the guest, but they'll also learn more about Sophia. So here's a clip of Sophia Bush and Chelsea Handler talking about Chelsea's book - "Life Will Be The Death of Me". And...if you like what you hear, go

    The next generation of working mothers is not going to accept the status quo. Unpaid labor, the mental load, and harsh self-judgment could be a thing of the past. But only if we stop feeling guilty and start getting angry, says Katherine Goldstein, creator and host of The Double Shift podcast. We debated these issues and more with Hana Baba, of The Stoop podcast and KALW in this live audience taping from the Betabrand Podcast Theatre on the Bay Area Stop of the Fuck Mom Guilt World Tour.

  • The Reality of a World Post Roe V Wade - A Panel from The Bixby Center for Reproductive Health

    The Reality of a World Post Roe V Wade - A Panel from The Bixby Center for Reproductive Health

    28/08/2019 Duration: 51min

    In the first half of 2019, State legislatures across the South, Midwest and the Plains enacted 58 abortion restrictions, 26 of which would ban some, most or all abortions--even before most people know they’re pregnant. On the brighter side, 93 new laws that expand reproductive healthcare were enacted, including 29 that expanded access to abortion, including NY, Vermont, Maine and Nevada. In the midst of this maelstrom, in June, 2019 I attended a panel put on The Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health--about the threats against Roe v. Wade and what it means for patients. I found the speakers and the content really helpful in wrapping my arms around the state of affairs and wanted to share it with you---so the Bixby Center gave me permission to do just that. The speakers you will hear include Stephanie Toti (who successfully argued Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt in front of the Supreme Court) and now runs the Lawyering Project whose mission is to strengthen protections for reproductive rights under

  • Inside The Ferguson Uprising - Sabaah Folayan, Director of Whose Streets?

    Inside The Ferguson Uprising - Sabaah Folayan, Director of "Whose Streets?"

    21/08/2019 Duration: 23min

    This is a special re-airing in recognition of the 5th anniversary of the Ferguson, MO protests. When Michael Brown was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, MO in August, 2014 and the protests began, Sabaah Folayan felt the media’s coverage was overly focused on the looting, rioting and property damage, and not nearly enough on the stories of the people who rose up. So she dropped everything and went to Ferguson to see for herself what was happening on the ground and to talk with the people who live there. The result is her documentary film “Whose Streets?” She shares what it was like to be there and how she made her film in such extraordinary circumstances. We spoke in 2017 when "Whose Streets?" first debuted.

    A Survivor And Her Perpetrator Find Justice- "Reckonings" Guest episode!

    14/08/2019 Duration: 01h15s

    On the podcast “Reckonings” host Stephanie Lepp posed the questions: “what does it sound like for a survivor of sexual assault to get her needs met?” “What does it sound like for a perpetrator to take responsibility for his sexual abuse of power?” To answer these questions, Stephanie spoke with a sexual abuse survivor and her perpetrator, who managed to work through it using restorative justice. It's an amazing story, and as part of the Inflection Point summer swap series, here is that Reckonings episode, right here in your feed. For more Reckonings episodes, go to http://www.reckonings.show/episodes/21. And for more on this topic, listen to my conversation with Eve Ensler, activist, author and Tony award winning playwright, about her new book The Apology, in which Eve imagines her father (who has been dead for 31 years) writing a confessional letter to her, seeking forgiveness for sexually and physically abusing her from the time she was 5 years old. Eve hopes that other survivors will find it a release to

    31/07/2019 Duration: 31min

    Welcome to a summer season episode swap featuring Katherine Goldstein of The Double Shift podcast. Earlier in the season, I shared my conversation with Katie Bethell, the founder of Paid Leave for the US--or PLUS, an advocacy group working to win paid leave for everyone--whether you need to care for yourself or others. While Katie and I were talking, another podcast that I follow, hosted by Katherine Goldstein, called “The Double Shift” about working mothers...also did a story--with a woman who decided that the paid leave policy at her workplace was good....but not good enough. I want you to hear what happened when she took matters into her own hands, and how the management team at the New York Times, where she worked, responded. But wait, there’s more! You’re invited to a live taping with me and Katherine Goldstein of The Double Shift when we appear together live in San Francisco August 15th as part of her “F*ck Mom-Guilt.... World Tour”. She will also be in Oakland, August 14th. Click here for tickets!

  • Author Jennifer Weiner on Writing a Radical Beach Read

    Author Jennifer Weiner on Writing a Radical Beach Read

    17/07/2019 Duration: 50min

    The times, they are a’changin’. This week on Inflection Point, I talk to author Jennifer Weiner about her newest bestselling book “Mrs. Everything”. The story is loosely based on Jennifer’s own mother, Fran, who got married, had 4 children and ultimately came out as a gay woman after Jennifer and her siblings were out of the house. Spanning two sisters’ lives from the 1950s to the night of the 2016 political election, the book raises questions about who is really making women’s choices about our own lives...are we? Or our system? How did we get where we are, and how do we move on from here? Jennifer shares the facts behind her fiction, what it takes to write a good sex scene, what hasn't changed since #metoo started, and  how the personal becomes political. We spoke at Women Lit, a program of the Bay Area Book Festival on June 22, 2019 in Berkeley, California. *Thank you to our sponsors! * EO Essential Oils NATIVE Deodorant: 20% off your first purchase.

  • How to Fight Like A Mother - Shannon Watts, Moms Demand Action

    How to Fight Like A Mother - Shannon Watts, Moms Demand Action

    03/07/2019 Duration: 49min

    Meet Shannon Watts, the author of Fight Like a Mother, and the founder of Moms Demand Action, a group that uses research, data, and a little bit of “nap-tivism” to throw their weight and money behind political candidates who are willing to put better gun control laws into action. The kicker? They’re winning. In the last election, they outspent even the NRA. Join us this week for a look at why our kids are subjected to violent and traumatizing active shooter drills, and what it takes to pass sensible gun legislation. We talk about the root cause of gun violence, who takes the brunt of the violence when background checks get lax, “losing forward” and the very real and positive change that is starting to take place as we come up to the 2020 elections.

  • Eve Ensler and the Radically Transformative Power of Apology

    Eve Ensler and the Radically Transformative Power of Apology

    19/06/2019 Duration: 51min

    This week on Inflection Point, I talk with Eve Ensler, award-winning playwright of The Vagina Monologues, about her new book “The Apology”, in which she writes in the voice of her father to apologize to herself--from him--for the years of sexual and physical abuse he perpetrated upon her. Stress warning: This episode contains conversation about sexual assault and violence. You will be blown away by Eve’s resilience, by her self-knowledge, by her strength of character, and by her deep well of compassion and empathy. Her ideas for political and social reform, as well as her profound insights into the human soul, make her a true radical, and radically empathetic. This week, we discuss the anatomy of a true apology, and the transformative power that apologies hold for the apologists themselves and their recipients. We discuss why punishment never leads to rehabilitation. We discuss the roots of abuse, and how we can start shifting the paradigm. A must-listen for anyone frustrated at the lack-luster apologies
