Women and Words: In the weeds only 56 percent of the time!
Andi and Jove might have wandered in the weeds more than 56 percent of the time today, but oh, well. They're super-stoked about R.G. Emanuelle's A Year in the Kitchen, which is 12 recipes R.G. developed the first year of Dirt Road Books (which she co-founded with Andi, Jove, Michelle Teichman and Gill McKnight). All proceeds from this book go to the Oregon Food Bank. They also had a long discussion of LGBTQ rep in mainstream publishing, talked about Gentleman Jack (thanks, Stevie Carroll!) and movies. And other stuff. Because weeds. 56 percent of the time.
