Lena Dunham has released what she is calling an “Emergency Election Edition” of her Women of the Hour podcast.
Season two of Dunham’s mini-series podcast about “friendship, love, work, bodies and more” isn’t premiering for another few of weeks, but as Dunham says, the team gathered early “for a very particular cause”: next week’s US presidential election.
In the episode, the Girls creator is joined by artist and activist Sarah Sophie Flicker and together they introduce a segment featuring a panel of women discussing of the upcoming election because as Flicker puts it, “right now it seems especially critical to give women a space to talk about this election. The racism, the xenophobia, the misogyny, the hate, have all been exposed like worms when we turned over the mossy rock that was this presidential race.”
