Like with any new thing that emerged anytime after 2010, I wasn’t immediately taken with podcasts. In fact, I think it’s only in the last month or so, or if I’ve being honest, the last few days, that I’ve become a podcast convert. Naturally that means I have been gorging obsessively on The High Low and The Guilt Feminist. Continue reading “REVIEW: The Guilty Feminist by Deborah Francis-White”
Ever written a witty tweet and wondered why it hasn’t gotten as many likes as you hoped?
