A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

The C-Word

Available on Luminary / Podcasts

If you cannot stand Lena Dunham, this podcast is not for you.

The “c-word,” as Dunham and co-host Alissa Bennett explain at the beginning of each episode, refers to an insult leveled, at one point or another, to every woman profiled in this podcast: “crazy.” A recent gem is the two-parter on Amy Winehouse, who died 10 years ago this summer. —J.V.
