Place in Hell
Daum & Sarah
“There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” — Madeleine Albright The hosts Meghan Daum and Sarah Haider, are two very different women separated by a generation and also wildly divergent life choices. Both Sarah and Meghan feel that our discourse is fucked— too politicized, too performative, and increasingly separated from reality. This podcast will offer an alternative to the nonsense: a space to think differently about culture, society, and especially sex (specifically what’s good about it, what’s bad about it and what we can and can’t do about any of it).
