Women And Words: Should We Buy A Private Island?

November 27, 2016

Women and Words Podcast Overview

19-25 November 2016

Jove and Andi freak out about the crazy that comes with the holidays in the States, discuss more about steampunk, wonder if they should buy a private island, and decide that neither of them can articulate properly because HOLIDAYS. And yes, Andi was drinking whiskey during this podcast but no bottles were harmed.

19 November: Women and Wordster reader-in-residence Erin Saluta blogged about getting away from it all so she discussed some books whose plotlines included islands.
