NOT THAT WE HAVE A MASSIVE BACKLOG OR ANYTHING but I’ve been really busy. I’m working as a builder (yes! I am!) and that takes up a lot of my time. Today (two months ago) we talk about Chris Hayes, Remembrance Day, Obama on Polish Death Camps and the British Medical Association going on strike.
AND: female protagonists – Ayn Rand, the Hunger Games, Game of Thrones + POP CULTURE!!!
