Listen to Tina Fey host HWofG

November 8th, 2011 in Archive by 15 Comments

Our two new Hidden World of Girls hour-long specials, hosted by Tina Fey, have begun airing on public radio stations around the country. From the dunes of the Sahara to a slumber party in Manhattan, from the dancehalls of Jamaica to a racetrack in Ramallah, Tina Fey takes us around the world into the secret life of girls and the women they become.

Sound-rich, evocative, funny, and powerful–stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities. Of women who crossed a line, blazed a trail, changed the tide. These specials are produced by Peabody Award-winning producers, The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva), in collaboration with NPR reporters and foreign correspondents, independent producers and listeners around the world.

You can listen to and download the specials here:

Hour One:

…What she [Kelly] said! As I made breakfast & cleaned up the kitchen I held my breath and blinked back tears, as story after story grabbed my heart and reconfirmed the truth about us.

i love this. want more!



this NEEDS TO STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Love this program!!!!!!!!!!!



I came in in the middle of the show, driving in the mountains listening to an unfamiliar station.
Can anyone tell me the name of the singer who grew up in Kansas City, KS; janitor mother and drug addicted father?
She sang the song about growing up in the deteriorating neighborhood.
A mention of the artist’s name at the END of the segment would be helpful.



Mike Grier


Me too! More please. :)






Love the show! Can you post the prayer that Tina Fey recites at the beginning of the show? It is just perfect.



Easily the best hour of radio I have heard in….well maybe ever. Like other said, do more make a movie sell shirts, truth be told if you made a breakfast cereal I would probably eat it. Double thumbs to the sun.

It’s so great to hear about women doing things that I’ve secretly wanted to do. It makes me proud to be a woman. I hope you can keep the program going.



I wish there was a list of the singers! I like the Connor girl. Happy as a bean in a can, priceless.



I smiled the whole ride home while listening to this new show. Hope the funding keeps coming because girls and women need a real voice in this world. keep it coming so inspiring!!!
