It’s the first episode of 2017 and we’re not big into spoilers so you’re just gonna have to listen to the show to find out what shenanigans we’re up to! [hint: it’s awards season]

Katherine Johnson*, a black physicist and mathematician critical to NASA for over three decades, is our BAWOTE (Badass Woman of the Episode) . You may have heard of her because she is one of the subjects of the award-winning and box-office-busting movie Hidden Figures.

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.


Enjoy listening to MttM? You can help others discover our pod by writing a review on iTunes. Thank you, thank you for listening! Lots of Love!

*Note: Kathryn accidently called BAWOTE Katherine Jacobsen (instead of Johnson) on the show. Katherine Jacobsen is the name of a woman she went to college with – we apologize for the mistake.
