"I Am a Rebel Girl" was created with the same attention to environmental safety as "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls Volumes 1 & 2."
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - THE PODCAST, SEASON 2
In Season 1 of "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - The Podcast" we transported you into the heart of the Greenbelt Movement as Melinda Gates narrated the inspiring story of environmental activist Wangari Maathai. We carried you to the outskirts of Mexico City to a vibrant blue house to experience the trials and victories of Frida Kahlo as told by Pamela Adlon. We traveled with you to the Moon with the story of NASA engineer Margaret Hamilton, narrated by Poorna Jagannathan.
Our first season was a phenomenal success, with 1 million downloads. The podcast was featured in the top charts of six countries, got a mention in Time Magazine’s 2018 50 Best Podcasts, and a nomination for a 2018 People’s Choice Podcast Award.
With your support, we will produce all new adventures with the same high quality that you have come to love. Eleven new, 20-minute long episodes will premiere in the spring of 2019. In Season 2, you’ll be transported into the courtroom with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, you’ll enter the thunderous flamenco dancing world of Carmen Amaya, and you’ll trek up an erupting volcano with Katia Krafft.

THE REBEL TEAM
When we launched our first campaign, we were a team of two. When we launched last year’s campaign, we were a team of 10. Thanks to your support, we have grown to a team of 20 rebels, working from 4 countries. Though each of us brings a unique perspective, we share the same values as the books and we work in concert to inspire girls worldwide to dream bigger, aim higher, and fight harder.
