The Gender Knot

94 EpisodesProduced by Nastaran Tavakoli-FarWebsite

A Time Magazine Top 50 podcast: “The show serves an important purpose: Encouraging men and women to enter a productive dialogue with one another”. Hosted by Nas and Dan (aka Nastaran Tavakoli-Far and Daniel Carroll).


Men and feminism – reactions!

Confusion, frustration, empathy, being able to relate – just some of the reactions I received from you, the audience, to last week’s episode exploring men and feminism, where we asked whether men should get involved in feminism, and if so, how.

Many female listeners unanimously related to one of the discussions last week, and I talk to two male listeners about the conversation on male feminists.

This topic is huge, so I’ll be following it up in a few weeks’ time. Send me your thoughts and experiences at or message me via the Facebook page.

Also, check out the fantastic podcast Fine and Dandy with Dan and Andy. This podcast is all about these questions! Comedians Daniel Carroll and Andy Haynes are straight-white-cis-American men, and they try to figure out how to be better men, in terms of gender, race, privilege, and much more! It’s a fun listen, while also tackling important topics with fantastic guests. Subscribe to their show via iTunes or the link below, and join their journey of figuring it out too!
