Concluding Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex (1949): "The Woman in Love" and "Myths" with guest Jennifer Hansen.
We continue on the ailments of women under patriarchy as well as the existential problems that we're all subject to.

We also talk narcissism, abjection, and the 2019 film Marriage Story.
