In this week’s episode of Out of Curiosity with kt mather, I Circle Back with fan favorite Bill Tanner for a typical kt and BT rambler. We discuss my week of small town power-politicking, Bill’s love for Nike Air Jordans (and his inability to give himself permission to buy them), unity amongst Democrats (not going well), color bravery vs  color blindness, accidentally watching Fire Walk with Me with your mom (and as Catholics), pin-up calendars, the great job assholes like Rush Limbaugh did making Feminism a dirty word (it’s still not going to stop us...), 80s hair and swimsuits, plus a deep dive into the Feminist sailing documentary Maiden about the first all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World race. Note: do yourself a favor and watch the doc before you listen. It’s REALLY SO GOOD!!!
