Robin Morgan, the Pope and Me

My recent HuffPost piece -- "For Pope Francis: A To-Do List on Women" -- made the web rounds and landed on the desk of Robin Morgan. She asked me to be a guest on her show "Women's Media Center Live with Robin Morgan," which I happily did. The show, which you can find here, aired on 5/3. On the same show you can hear Robin's interview with her first male guest ever, Jimmy Carter, and with Crunk Feminist Collective co-founder Dr. Brittney Cooper.

"Women's Media Center Live with Robin Morgan" is a weekly CBS radio broadcast that airs in Washington, D.C., and has a national and international (67 countries) online audience at iTunes and podcast at
