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.

Feb 18, 2021

Kelly and Beth speak our truth each week on Strange Country and it feels so good. It may take us a while, meandering through details of our lives as mothers, women in our 40s, and librarians, but we get there eventually, dear Dashhounds. Thanks for listening and supporting that journey each week. This week we give honor to the podcast space that let’s us speak our truth and wish singer and actress Eartha Kitt,could have had her own podcast. Instead she had to eat clam bisque with the fancy-pants Doers of the White House, and then speak her mind about Vietnam and the real reason behind crime in America. And then watch her career flounder for years thanks to CIA gossip gatherers, and racists.
