Finally! We've been waiting so long for this, I almost thought we'd never get here. And by here I mean the collapse of the patriarchy.

If only pod notes made it so. No, this week and next we're cover Naomi Alderman's The Power. To keep us from mansplaining our way through a feminist classic, we're joined by our future gender overlord, Hannah Marcus (@sligers118 on Twitter), a MA student in cultural studies who has done work specifically on The Power. We start by covering the feminist Cyborg theory, and then begin to apply that theory to one of the most multifaceted texts we've examined so far.
