The High Five Podcast Episode 25 – Rebel Girls With Dr. Elizabeth Keenan-Penagos Part 1

On this week’s High Five Podcast, I talk to my longtime friend Dr. Elizabeth Keenan-Penagos about her book Rebel Girls from a few years back. We recorded last fall, but the conversation about this excellent book still feels fresh. In part one (of three), we really dig into the characters of the book and what went into bringing them to life in 1992 Baton Rouge. Over the next two episodes, we get into the history of Riot Grrrl, the beautiful weirdness of David Lynch and my very first experiences listening to Bikini Kill and Bratmobile.

I put together a lengthy Spotify playlist based on Elizabeth’s suggestion, you can check that out here. You can follow Elizabeth on Instagram and Twitter and also keep an eye on her website,! You can email me at high5tj at or follow me on Twitter and Instagram.
