About the podcast

A little bit of humor from a feminist. You may think impossible, but in reality no one cares what trolls think.

I will discuss one topic (or ten depending on how much caffeine I drink) each episode concerning the Midwest American culture, and by American I mean 'Merican. The life of a feminist in the Midwest gets a bit tense at times and I hope to show people in rural areas that the word "feminist" is not a threat to your livelihood, unless you make a living by being a misogynist. In that case...uh...suck it.
