Use your powers for good. Andi and Jove wander through hockey, DJ'ing, "what if" and Star Wars in this, the most likely final episode of the Women and Words podcast. They're putting the podcast on extended hiatus...it may come back later or it may not! They feel like they had a good run with this one but it's time to shift their energies and focus to other things. THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who have followed us and who have listened and may The Force be with you. :)
Look! The internet finally let me upload the post!
Andi and Jove discuss plans for the new year, the ethos of Gen X and cool things younger generations are doing; how blank journals can be intimidating; and learning not to judge yourself too harshly if you can't get some things done. Like writing. Also, now they both want the same kind of planner Carsen Taite has. Jan. 1: Author and Women and Wordster Carsen Taite gave us a round up of things on her plate this year and can we just say OMG. Have a look. Jan. 2: Author and Women and Wordster R.G. Emanuelle has some thoughts about trying to recapture her writing mojo this year. Join her. Also, Andi is a meteor fan and stayed up way late to watch a few of the Quadrantid shower, which happens in January. For more info about that shower, see this link at space.com.

Jove got the tech stuff figured out and she and Andi are fancy colleagues once again IN SEPTEMBER!!!! WHAT? It's SEPTEMBER? And they talk vacation, spirituality, misfit produce, and things that help them with stress management. Andi also offers some advice for those of you who plan on getting outdoors, like, don't use pool toys as your river transportation.
Andi and Jove note that last week they tried to put an episode up, but tech foiled them at every turn and they had the sadz because they liked that episode a lot. Dammit. This week they chat about whatever-the-hell, including kids back in school, Lee Lynch's ice cream penchant, things that help get you through the summer, personal shit authors may go through, and, as KD Williamson points out, pumpkin spice shit, which is back in full-force and flavoring things both good and HELL NO. And shout-out to faithful listener (bless yer heart) Jen W., who wrote in and made us laugh with a "Women and Weeds" reference WHICH, dear listeners, Jove may just put on a T-shirt...
