Quick Hit: The Hidden World of Girls

A special radio show (or is it just a podcast now?) With Tina Fey! And the Kitchen Sisters! And stories about alien girls from Venus, the girl who shot a buck , the first women race-car drivers in Ramallah, Traveller girls and wedding dresses, amongst many other interesting stories of different girls and women. Part 1 and Part 2. (I have only listened to part 1, and that with half an ear due to being ridiculously busy, but it was fascinating, so I’m saving up part 2 for when I can do the listening some justice!). If you’d prefer them broken down into smaller sections, the long list of segments can be found here.

The description:

Groundbreaking writer, actress and comedian, Tina Fey hosts The Hidden World of Girls, two new hour-long specials inspired by the NPR series heard on Morning Edition and All Things Considered. From the dunes of the Sahara to a slumber party in Manhattan, from the dancehalls of Jamaica to a racetrack in Ramallah, Tina Fey takes us around the world into the secret life of girls and the women they become. Sound-rich, evocative, funny, and powerful–stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities. Of women who crossed a line, blazed a trail, changed the tide. These specials are produced by Peabody Award-winning producers, The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva), in collaboration with NPR reporters and foreign correspondents, independent producers and listeners around the world.
