How many Kelsey Weasels does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Trick question! She snuck in and got the damn thing replaced yesterday.
Naughty by nature? Kelsey Weasel (aka Kelsey Boyer) is HELFUL by nature! Seriously. She is the gal you want to call when your car breaks down, your kickstarter is in a slump or (god forbid) you run out of Maltort (or as my ignorant West Coast ass likes to call it, Mahlortz)
Today, we talk about Kelsey's important work with Planned Parenthood (she served as online & community organizer from November 2016-October 2018), the joys of superfandom, becoming an engaged and active participant in the world of art, how to avoid burnout when trying to save the world, and the self-care release that is our shared (and totally not guilty) pleasure, 90s pop punk band Screeching Weasel! OK, we just talk a bunch about Screeching Weasel the whole time. Sue us.
Warning: This episode contains frank discussion of the good, the bad and the ugly: Ben Weasel. Yep. We’re just two liberated feminists talking about how we let loose by doing the groin-o-rama in lieu of the age old “glass of wine and a bubble bath!”
What would Betty Friedan say? Ah, she'd prolly do the groin-o-rama with us!
