Porkins Policy Radio episode 27 The White Female Terrorist

This week I am joined once again by Tom Secker and Jon Ryman for a roundtable discussion about white female terrorists.  We take a look at how white female terrorists have been portrayed in Hollywood movies and TV shows, and examine how these cartoonish representations mimic real life white female terrorists.  We, of course, take a look at one of our favorite white female terrorists, Samantha Lewthwaite, as well as the less known, but equally important, “Jihad Jane.”  We discuss the celebrity status of the white female terrorist in Western society, and how this meme really represents the coming together of several different aspects of the war on terror.  We also speak more broadly about the ever-evolving synthetic War on Terror and how all these  pieces fit together.
