We're coming to you this week with our first ever Corrections Quadrant! A new (and hopefully lasting) listener and friend wrote to us in response to our episode last episode and the use of the term "Gypsy" and she offered us some education on Roma culture. If you'd like to learn more about Roma culture, please check out this awesome article.
Next, Kelly surprises the heck out of Debbie Jo when she tells her why she's working on removing the word "Y'all" from her vocabulary. All about learning, knowing, and doing better, folks. We're all human and don't have to be perfect, but we should try to be better whenever possible.
Speaking of being a real ass human... This week Debbie Jo tells Kelly about Carrie A. Nation, a somewhat controversial woman in history. We don't want to give too much away in the show notes, so you should definitely listen and draw your own conclusions. Her story begs the question: are badasses and heroes only ever perfect? (Spoiler alert: No.) And Carrie is credited with opening the country's first ever battered women and children's shelter, so there's that!
Thank you for being with us this week and every week. We had a really great time recording this episode, and Kelly was able to do it from a bedside studio thanks to our distinguished producer, Wade Freeman. Thanks, Wade!
Always be a real as human and have a great week, friends!
