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.

Life as we know it has dramatically changed. Societies around the world are being asked to stay home and away from other people.  The view from Allison's window remains the same each day and as an introverted extrovert she can't fight the curiosity of what this is like for others. In an effort to make everyone feel less alone Allison invited her roommate Josie and some listeners to share their social distancing stories. The stories range from a Southerner living in France to a flight attendant.  There's a special section with advice from Dr. Alysa Lucas, of the Best Forevers Podcast, on maintaining friendships while social distancing.  Donation and Finance Resources: United States Bartenders Guild Benefits.gov Women Photograph Format (Photographer Aid) Mental Health Resources: Taking Care of Your Mental Health in the Face of Uncertainty Virus Anxiety Podcasts: Haunted Happenstance, Words Unspoken: The Hills Podcast

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.
