Unpicking the media storm: Trans rights as a threat to women

Warning: strong language and mention of rape
LIVE SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT: Media Storm will be LIVE at the London Podcast Festival this September, on Saturday 16th at 7pm! Book tickets now to join us as we breakdown the craziest headlines of 2023:
Are trans rights a threat to women? Or is that narrative itself the real threat?
Actor, author and activist Charlie Craggs joins Helena and Mathilda in the studio for this week's bonus episode, to pick apart mainstream media efforts to pitch cis women against their trans counterparts: where has it come from, who is it serving, and how is it being weaponised against women themselves?
The hosts also spill the beans from their trip to Parliament, which took an unexpected turn for the transphobic.
