‘Lady Problems’ Podcast, With TV Columnist Jen Chaney

Plus: How female pop-culture icons like Carrie Fisher and Cher Horowitz have become central to the resistance

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Hazel Cills and Rachel Handler co-host alongside Vulture’s TV columnist Jen Chaney.

We talk to Jen about her new piece, “The Romantic Comedy Is Not Dead — It’s Just Not the Same As You Remember," break down our most favorite and most abhorred rom-coms, and wonder what the rom-com will look like now that we are living in a hellish dystopia. Later, we get into how, during awards season in said dystopia, famous women are using the mic to voice dissent — and have awkward but important conversations about intersectional feminism at Sundance. Lastly, we'll talk about how and why female pop-culture icons like Carrie Fisher and Cher Horowitz have become central to the resistance.
