In this episode, Mindy Abovitz Monk reminisces on getting her first Bikini Kill tape and talks to Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney about being a drummer whose records have spanned decades. PLUS we hear from female:pressure’s Leah King.

It’s so shocking when people do say ‘oh you play good for a girl’ or ‘oh you’re my favorite female drummer.’ It’s like close your eyes, can you tell with your eyes closed the sex of the drummer if they’re not singing? I think not.
