Strange Country

Sometimes you need to have a glass of wine, cuppa whatever and listen to a good old weird story. Musical score Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.

Nov 17, 2022

Dearest Dashies: It’s time to learn about the Most Dangerous Woman in the World, aka, Mother Jones. Have you ever heard of her? Do you read the magazine that has her namesake? Mother Jones is a worthy woman to know and love and maybe resurrect from the dead. She stood up for what was right as far as labor rights and wrongs go. When she showed up, everyone listened. Not only did she have important things to say, she said it in an Irish brogue, which Beth and Kelly can almost do. Thanks for listening. It is an act of love.

Theme music: Big White Lie by A Cast of Thousands
