    Audible exclusive. We invite Lindy West to the studios to talk about her new novel, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman. 'A memoir about the issues that have shaped my life. How to deal with trolls, feminist criticism of comedy and body image - to name but a few.' About Shrill: 'Women are told, from birth, that it's our job to be small: physically small, small in our presence, and small in our impact on the world. We're supposed to spend our lives passive, quiet and hungry.'

They are two stand-up comedians in their mid-30s — I know, the podcast comes as a shock — and their show is a kind of micro focus group, investigating how to be better straight white dudes by picking the brains of guests who don’t fit that description.

    "Real Men Might Get Made Fun Of" is from the July 11, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Lindy West and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.

    'Women are told, from birth, that it's our job to be small: physically small, small in our presence, and small in our impact on the world. We're supposed to spend our lives passive, quiet and hungry. I want to obliterate that expectation....' Guardian columnist Lindy West wasn't always loud. It's difficult to believe she was once a nerdy, overweight teen who wanted nothing more than to be invisible.
