Lena Dunham to host new podcast ‘Women of the Hour’

Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham’s new book, Not That Kind of Girl, was recently released in paperback, and now she’ll be exploring similar themes on a regular basis in a brand new podcast.

The Girls showrunner announced on Twitter today that she’ll be hosting a new podcast, Women of the Hour. Produced by Buzzfeed, each episode of the podcast will focus on a different theme and will feature interviews with celebrities like Emma Stone, June Squibb, and Amy Sedaris. In an Instagram post, Dunham described the show as a “modern variety show about gender, sexuality and feminism.”

The podcast feed has already put up a brief promo on iTunes, which features discussions of productivity, the perils and pleasures of life as a modern woman, and the dynamic nature of the word “dude.”

Women of the Hour is created by Jenna Weiss-Berman, director of audio at Buzzfeed and an old friend of Dunham.

Dunham’s book, Not That Kind of Girl, recently hit No. 2 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. She’s currently working on her HBO show Girls, which returns for its fifth season this January.

 Women of the Hour will premiere on Nov. 5. Its first season will feature five episodes.
