    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.'

    You know that part in “Jurassic Park” when Dr. Grant and the kids are about to get chomped by velociraptors, but the Tyrannosaurus rex shows up and demolishes the raptors with her superior jaws? And you kind of forgive the T. rex for the first half of the movie when she was insatiably hungry for child meat, because in the end she stuck her neck out, as only a dino could, so our heroes could get away?

    "The Megyn Kelly Problem" is from the October 24, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Lindy West and narrated by Kristi Burns.

    A few weeks back, some old friends invited me to appear on their podcast. 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.

    It is unclear what possessed Woody Allen, of all people, to comment on the accusations of sexual predation against Harvey Weinstein, when he could have just not said anything, not expressed sympathy for an alleged serial rapist, not accused long-silenced women who said they were sexually assaulted of contributing to “a witch hunt atmosphere” and not felt compelled to issue a pouty follow-up statement in which he didn’t apologize but, in fact, reiterated how “sad” he feels for Weinstein because Weinstein is “sick.”

    "Yes, This Is a Witch Hunt. I’m a Witch and I’m Hunting You." is from the October 17, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Lindy West and narrated by Kristi Burns.

    '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. Fortunately for women everywhere, along the road she found her voice - and how she found it!
