About the Podcast

Divided States of Women logo

Hosted by Liz Plank and Hitha Herzog, this podcast uncovers the complicated, multifaceted, intersectional debates that make up the life of the modern American woman. Liz (a progressive) and Hitha (a conservative) may be friends who get along, but they certainly don’t always agree. They’ll bring prominent feminist thinkers, politicians, and celebrities onto the show as guests, and they’ll report from the field to hear from women around the country.
