2 Girls, 1 Podcast ep#10: Marriage, music and Valentines edition

Hey folks we’re back. Sorry for being late and sorry for leaving you waiting with baited breath for the second half of the Feminist Agenda podcast. I started my champagne bath and then never wanted to get out. No. Actually, we had some technical issues and lost the whole thing. Very sad, as we had some funny moments with Amber Rowland but that’s ok because this week we have some […]

"Whispers in the Wind" by Frankie Jones
