Fainting Couch Feminists Episode Fifty-Six: We're Addicted But We're Trying: Anne T. Donahue Talks Twitter, Alcohol, and Body Image

Interview by 
Mica Lemiski

Anne T. Donahue is a writer, funny person, and pop culture critic who is here to chat about so many things we hysterical women care about! In this ep, Mica and Anne discuss intersections such as: pop culture and politics, identity and privilege, and twitter and mental health. They also enter VERY REAL AND PERSONAL territory to chat about addiction and its many complicated forms. There's the internet. Alcohol. Food. Work. How can we value ourselves without using our addictions as either crutches or measuring sticks of progress? It's tough. But we're trying. We're frustrated. But we're hopeful.
