Lisa Jervis and Andi Zeisler are the founding editors of Bitch Magazine, which they bill as "A Feminist Response to Pop Culture." The magazine combines high-minded criticism with pop culture subjects and frequently biting wit. They founded the magazine when they were just 22, and it just celebrated its 10th anniversary. To honor the occaision, they've released "Bitchfest: Ten Years of Cultural Criticism from the Pages of Bitch Magazine." Also: bonus audio below of Lisa and Andi on what's better and what's worse in pop culture, 10 years after they started the magazine.
