Both Sides Now

This is a new radio show featuring two women:

Both Sides Now is a new weekend radio show offering both sides on every issue, with Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, and Mary Matalin, former top aide to the Bush/Cheney White House. Hosted by Mark Green.

Loads of shows feature two or three men, of course, so it's nice to hear two women hashing it out. Except for who these two women are: One W-Stands-For-Women Bushist and one woman whose news website sells by having tit pics on the front page.

So we are not going to hear interesting feminist opinions in that show. Which may be a blessing in disguise as most such debates (with two sides) on feminist questions juxtapose "women really ARE human beings" with "women are crap". And we view that as objective and neutral.
