About The Bechdel Cast

The Bechdel Cast is a podcast hosted by comedians Jamie Loftus and Caitlin Durante about the portrayal of women in film. It's inspired by the Bechdel Test (created by cartoonist Alison Bechdel), which requires that a movie has two female characters (with names) who speak to each other about something other than a man. The Bechdel Cast examines one of Hollywood's biggest problems: the under- and misrepresentation of women. But in a funny way! Listen to new episodes every Thursday!

The Bechdel Cast has been featured in such festivals as the Women in Comedy Festival, the Cinder Block Comedy Festival, and the Boston Comedy Arts Festival! Past guests include Nikki Glaser, Aparna Nancherla, Nicole Byer, Lizz Winstead, Lindsay Ellis, Amanda Seales, Jessica Chobot, Sam Jay, Myq Kaplan, Debra DiGiovanni, Solomon Georgio, Riley Silverman, Demi Adejuyigbe, Jenny Zigrino, Marcella Arguello, & more!
