The Guilty Feminist at the Rose Theatre
Less of a podcast and more of a global phenomenon, The Guilty Feminist, hosted by Deborah Frances-White and featuring world class guests, is part comedy, part deep dive discussion and part activism.
Examining our noble goals as 21st century feminists and our hypocrisies and insecurities that undermine those goals, The Guilty Feminist has had a spectacular 100 million downloads in seven years. This is the show that proves you don't have to be perfect to be a force for meaningful change. Come join The Guilty Feminist live and be part of this joyful movement.
Guilty Feminist regular Jessica Fostekew joins Deborah to co-host, with Catherine Cohen as special guest.

BTB Live features performances from exciting up-and-coming musicians Sam Harwood-White, G. H. Loveless, The Docs and Dunz. Expect to hear a range of genres, spanning from jazz to R&B, rap and indie music, and experience a night of unmissable talent and energy.
This is the first 'BTB Live' event of 2023, and there will be more announced later in the year.
