June 10, 2018

Women and Words Overview 2-8 June 2018

ERMAHGERD Andi’s back after gallivanting around for a while, and demonstrates her continued inability to keep things on track. She also wonders how the hell Fiona Zedde manages to just pick up and gallivant all around the world at a moment’s notice when she herself can barely get it together on the day-by-day. Also, sex, underwear, and corsets. Because why not?
