Earlier this year, Amy Scholder and Elizabeth Koke of the Feminist Press at the City of University of New York published the book Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer for Freedom.

In this podcast, they participate in a question and answer discussion focusing on freedom of speech and feminism, with particular emphasis on the Moscow-based feminist punk collective Pussy Riot—three of their members were arrested and charged with felony hooliganism for staging a protest against Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 12, 2012.

Please note that this podcast contains explicit material.
