Women and Words: It’s been a shitty fucked up week

Jove shares some news from the homefront and Andi and Jove have a hard time with this podcast because of terrible, tragic events and many of the Women and Words contributors are also struggling with these terrible, tragic events, but dammit, those of you who create, keep creating. And to all of you, keep telling your stories, keep talking to each other, and share some love with others.
