Luminary, the subscription podcast network, and writer Dr. Roxane Gay announced the launch of The Roxane Gay Agenda. Premiering on Luminary on January 25 in partnership with iHeartMedia, The Roxane Gay Agenda is the bad feminist podcast of your dreams – compelling conversations curated in the way only Roxane Gay can. Gay offers uncommonly incisive reads of the politics that shape the world we live in and the popular culture we consume.
Two episodes of The Roxane Gay Agenda will debut on Tuesday, January 25 – the first episode will be available widely on Luminary, iHeartRadio, and everywhere podcasts are heard, and the second episode will be exclusive and ad-free for one week on Luminary before releasing widely on February 1. Going forward, episodes of The Roxane Gay Agenda will be released on Tuesdays exclusive and ad-free to subscribers on the Luminary app or the Luminary channel on Apple Podcasts for one week, after which they will be distributed through the iHeartPodcast Network and will be available on iHeartRadio and all major podcast platforms.
The Roxane Gay Agenda, produced by Gay along with Curtis Fox, continues Gay’s collaboration with Luminary, where she previously hosted the award-winning and beloved Hear to Slay with Tressie McMilan Cottom, for which the duo was named Adweek’s Host of the Year.
