There's no doubt the creator of Girls is a hard worker bringing her dreams to life. On Tuesday, Lena Dunham announced her new podcast titled Women of the Hour, which will be released Nov. 5. Created alongside her friend Jenna Weiss-Berman and produced by BuzzFeed, the podcast is a "modern variety show about gender, sexuality, and feminism," Dunham explained on Instagram. This is the perfect way for the 29-year-old talent to celebrate the paperback release of Not That Kind of Girl. Actually, as she excited shared with fans via TwitLonger

In honor of the Not That Kind of Girl paperback release, I decided to explore the themes of my book further, talking to an array of women I love and admire in order to bring you an audio collage/feminist variety hour in the form of this pod-cast: Women of the Hour. 

As hard as it might be to have to wait until November (which really isn't that far away!) to listen to Dunham's "all lady pod-squad," there's a preview of Women of the Hour available on iTunes to hold you over until the first episode. Even though it's only a short five minutes, it's worth a listen. As you'll see, it's definitely funny, informative, and filled with a ton of celebrity and amazing guest stars. 

Here are a few more things you have to look forward to when Dunham's podcast is finally available.
