The Vibes, They Are a Shiftin'

by Feminine Chaos


The term 'vibe' has been thrown around loosely for years to describe what energy we're looking for or are giving off in the current moment. What if we used the same term to define cultural phenomena? Feminine Chaos, hosted by writers Kat Rosenfield and author Phoebe Maltz Bovy, is a cultural and political commentary podcast that discusses today's major headlines.

In this March 6, 2022 episode, Rosenfield talks with author and poet Leigh Stein about the newly coined term 'vibe shift.' The two women discuss how major cultural movements evolve, how millennials are characterized, and whether or not the pandemic has killed intimacy in today's digital world.
