Abstract

One thing that united people more than ever is the precariousness of our lives (Butler, 2004) as it becomes very clear that we all are vulnerable. Vulnerability is a very aesthetic, embodied phenomenon. While feminist perspectives today emphasize care across status groups, class and race, podcasts as contemporary media formats also support women, but remain ambivalent. We are going to reflect on Just B with Bethenny Frankel as a show that wants to provide female listeners with a “tool-kit” (Frankel), giving postfeminist advice, and offering an aesthetic experience.
