Description

Not Your Little Lady is a podcast featuring women living outside of the South's socially accepted norms. Listen and relate as we laugh, cry and share stories about facing obstacles and how it feels to come out on the other side. We will talk about things that piss us off, the booze we like to drink, and historical women who have made a difference. Topic experts will give advice and relay realistic steps on how to implement it in our daily lives. We’ll explore the importance of women owning their past, present and future while keeping it light and funny, like a lady will do.

It's no secret that Allison loves journalism. Any opportunity to talk about it is one that she can't pass up and this episode gave her that chance. The guest is Callie Starnes, news director at WRCB-TV in Chattanooga, Tenn. It is an especially special episode because in Allison's late high school years she watched Callie Starnes report the news each evening with her mom at the dinner table. Allison and Callie chat about her role as the first woman to be news director at WRCB-TV and what exactly the role of a news director encompasses. We also chat about combatting fake news, changes Callie has made in her newsroom and what it's like working in a very conservative area of the nation. The Who's that Lady (from History)? is Nancy Dickerson, a radio and television journalist. The Things that Pissed Us Off deals with buggies and earworms.

This is part two of the episode about Stone Mountain Park. The episode focuses on the laser show, repurposing the park, the impact on the south and the nation if the park changes and the recent loss in revenue. We also talk about the potential impact of Reverend Abraham Mosely will have as Chair of Stone Mountain Memorial Association. The Things that Pissed Us Off focuses on those who romanticize the Lost Cause, being barred from entering a Stone Mountain Memorial Association Meeting, people not being respectful of time and dentist bills.  The Who's that Lady (from History)? is Fanny Kemble.  Resources: Fanny Kemble Stone Mountain Action Coalition Reverend Mosely Politico Article
Stone Mountain Park sits just outside of the city of Atlanta. It is the site of the world's largest memorial to the Confederacy. It has ties to the second birth of the KKK. Most recently it has been in the news as a place where those protesting Confederate monuments have clashed with Lost Cause sympathizers. However, the park is also site to hiking trails, a monadnock and a geology museum. To say the park has two very different lives is an understatement. On this episode four members of the Stone Mountain Action Coalition discuss the history of the park including the Venable Family, funding for the monument and how the Lost Cause mentality influences many aspects of the park. This episode is part one of two. The Who's that Lady (from History)? as well as the Things that Pissed Us Off will be featured in part two.   Resources: Stone Mountain Action Coaliton

No new episode this week. Releasing it would feel like ignoring the protests and why they are being done. Instead, NYLL is participating in the #PodcastBlackout started by Cult 45: The Movie Podcast. NYLL stands in solidarity with the protesters against police brutality and racism. So, to honor and remember the black men, women, children and transwomen who have been slain by the police or victims of hate crimes we say their names.

Sadly, thousands of dollars off medical debt led to my filling for bankruptcy ... something I never, ever wanted to do but ultimately figured I had few other choices. And yes, I'm well aware that there are most likely millions of people who have walked in those shoes. That's the result of our fine medical system (that is very expensive) in the U.S.

Please consider how many times you say the word "like". Very difficult to listen to this host's speech cadence.

I have a very articulate friend who is a natural educator. He is a transplant from California, and he now lives in North East Texas, where grew up and still live. I agree with everything she is saying, and Frank has been saying this about the people here as a whole, nit just women. Sometimes he forgets that he has Facebook friends who are white when he becomes perturbed with the mindset of white America in the South. I have at times been almost offended, because he is dead on with his perception, and I guess I'm afraid that he can see my ingrained racist. I don't want to be that person and I don't want to make excuses that other people might find to be a cop out for bullshit behavior. I try to be more evolved that my for sisters, but I don't know if I am. She makes me think...I sent the pod to Frank.
