Women and an Abusive God
My recent podcast productions have focused a lot on women with some excellent guests.
In the episode Women in Wild Spaces, I feature Lilace Melin Guinard, a poet and non-fiction writer. We actually walked in the woods and talked about her her memoir, When Everything Beyond the Walls Is Wild: Being a Woman Outdoors in America, Guinard explores the challenges and rewards of exploring wilderness alone. Poet Hila Ratzabi reads and breaks down a selection from her book, There are Still Woods. In “Willapa Bay,” Ratzabi recollects her time at an artist residency in the westernmost point of Washington State, a space where she was able to have a spiritual connection with nature.
In my personal playground of a podcast, Bubble&Squeak, Wendy Sanford talks about the early days and the on-going process of writing the women’s health book, Our Bodies Ourselves. For over 40 years they have been expanding the definition of WE. And I share a person reflection on carrying for my sister-in-law as she died from cancer.
