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.
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.
