This is a Femme On first! The introduction of a new offering, I Am Not the Word with Sara Blair (Cancer Rebel, Teacher, Wildlife Photographer and Human Rainbow). Alyson and Sara talk a bit about how they met, at a Amanda Montell (author of Wordslut and Cultish) webinar, and how every conversation they have ends up being about WORDS and how Sara has wanted to make a podcast about language for some time. And so we have begun and it’s an awesome conversation! And Femme On is excited to see where this goes. Have a listen while Alyson and Sara dig deep into language and let us know if there are any words you want to talk or hear about. We love them! And you, dear listeners.
