We’re back as promised, and we have some adventures to share. Miró shares her experience with the TBTL Tens at their Austin live show (and makes Kath jealous), and Kath gushes about returning to our high school for our ten year reunion (and sharing our friendship “origin story” in the process.) We also talk about bravery, whether it’s following the example of Anne of Green Gables (from the books, not the new Netflix series we aren’t watching) or getting up on a trapeze!

Need a little more inspiration to be bold? Follow the lead of this episode’s BAWOTE: Roxcy Bolton, fierce feminist foremother.

No, you don’t have to be rich, you just have to be on the $10 bill. Prince has passed away but our girl Elizabeth Cady Stanton made it onto the big 1-0! Kath tells us about our Badass Woman of the Episode: inventor, actress, and free-the-nipple-er before her time, Hedy Lamarr. We share some big news. And the question still stands, “Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?”

Episode 14: A Very “Special” Episode

Christmas is right around the corner and that means the annual company holiday party is almost here, too. That wonderful time of year where you and your colleagues get drunk and a little too honest together. So who’s responsible for this fiasco? Well, your boss, but if you’re a woman you’ve most likely been asked at one point to help plan a company function. So what do you say? What do you do? We’re not 100% sure but come talk it through with us!

We also celebrate feminist and suffragette Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s birthday (11/12), discuss how to tell people they’re being sexist a-holes without pissing anyone off, and answer listeners’ questions.

Lyrics from “Sister Suffragette” – Mary Poppins
Composed by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman

We’re clearly soldiers in petticoats
And dauntless crusaders for women’s votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they’re rather stupid
Cast off the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughters’ daughters will adore us
And they’ll sing in grateful chorus

Well done, Sister Suffragette

From Kensington to Billingsgate one hears the restless cries
From every corner of the land womankind arise
Political equality
And equal rights with men
Take heart, for Mrs. Pankhurst has been clapped in irons again

No more the meek and mild subservient we
We’re fighting for our rights militantly
Never you fear

So cast off the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughters’ daughters will adore us
And they’ll sing in grateful chorus
Well done
Well done
Well done, Sister Suffragette

Intro Song: Strange Overtones by David Byrne & Brian Eno
Outro Song: Sister Suffragette from Mary Poppins by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman
