Listen in: 'Call your girlfriend'

A few weeks ago, I started listening to the podcast Call Your Girlfriend, and it could not have come at a better time (post-election blues). It was the perfect reminder that there were other people thinking out loud through the same things I was thinking about, and more, with both truth and flair.

I am tuning in regularly now to hear more about what has been going on in the lead up to and the aftermath of the Women's March. The latest episode, Executive Disorder,  gives a recap of Trump's first week in office, as well as some interviews from the march. One of my favorite sentiments: This is not a protest, it is a promise. It is a guarantee that this is only the beginning.  

I particularly enjoyed the shout out to Austin, Texas in this episode during their discussion of march signage. Apparently, someone had brought a massive cutout of Matthew McConaughey, with the text, "Women want all rights, all rights, all rights." Now, I did search the web for this sign and did not manage to find it (share if you do), but if you do not get the reference, here it is explained:

If you, like many of us, are interested in what you can do next, here are a few good ideas, including a next opportunity to march April 15.
