About This Show
Lady Problems navigates being a feminist pop-culture junkie. Join hosts Rachel Handler, Teo Bugbee, Hazel Cills and a rotating cast of female geniuses like Mara Wilson, Phoebe Robinson, and Stacy London as they dissect how pop culture treats women each week. (Spoiler alert: It is almost always "terribly.") We'll be here unpacking our favorite Fucked Up Films (In A Good Way) About Women, wondering whether we can guiltlessly watch "Louie," solving our listener's own Lady Problems, or sharing personal anecdotes about pouring beer straight into the Ugg slippers of the patriarchy. Lady Problems is a proud member of the MTV Podcast Network. You can check out other great shows including Speed Dial, North Mollywood, The Stakes, and Happy Sad Confused at podcasts.mtv.com.
Most Recent Episode
On the season one finale of “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Teo Bugbee and Rachel Handler talk to genius comedian Aparna Nancherla. Aparna's comedy takes many forms — she does stand-up, she's a writer, she has an amazing Twitter, she's written for Late Night with Seth Meyers, she's been on Inside Amy Schumer and Netflix's Love, she has a podcast called Blue Woman Group, a Comedy Central special…. We could go on, but instead we will let her talk about how she wrings absurdist comedy from depression and anxiety, what it's like to occasionally write for dudes, and what's actually funny in the Trump era. Later, she'll answer a Lady Problem from our co-host Hazel Cills and an existential query from a listener.
