About

Citizen Dame started in 2017 out of hostility. Why are so many film podcasts anchored by men? Why are women generally relegated to be the “token lady?” Can’t there be a podcast that discusses movies, the Oscar race and more with an all-female roundtable?

After a few bumps Citizen Dame was born, and it couldn’t have come at a better time with the wave of sexual harassment scandals, new movies that have caused audiences to look at films differently, and a general atmosphere requiring new voices to come to the forefront. Every week Kristen Lopez, Karen Peterson, Lauren Humphries-Brooks and Kimberly Pierce come together to laugh, cry, and discuss the film world they love and loathe in equal measure.
