We’re baaaccckkkk!!! After a crazy fall Miró and Kath are back behind the mic and we’ve got a lot to catch up on.  The BAWOTE (Badass Woman of the Episode) is Solange Knowles with some guest badassery courtesy of her mother, Tina Knowles. Too much fabulousness to explain here, just go listen.

Kath discusses why Buffy the Vampire Slayer may be the balm for our post-election wounds (and yes, it’s still relevant!) and we escape further into the fantasy world with reviews of YA novels Seraphina and Carry On.

Taking it back to reality, Kath finally names her “watch a movie by a creepy person, give back to something good,” mission: Filmanthropy.

Side note: For the record, the actual Elizabeth Cady Stanton quote we reference is, “In a word, I am always busy, which is perhaps the chief reason why I am always well.”

As always, we want to hear from YOU! Tweet to us at #MttMPod and tell us your thoughts about the episode, a badass woman we should know about, or about anything, really.

In episode 22 Miró and Kath discuss Fashion Week, rant about Yeezy (yes, again), give you some updates on what grandma TV you should be watching, and discuss this topic: “what are we doing with our lives?” (Please don’t answer that).

Bonus points to the person who can figure out the two reasons the outro music was chosen!

This episode our BAWOTE (Badass Woman of the Episode) is Emma Rowena Gatewood (aka Grandma Gatewood) who, at 67, was the first woman to complete a solo hike through the Appalachian Trail. Enough said, go learn more in this episode!
