A Bitchy-ish Newsletter
The Ides of March
It’s been a while, Bitches, but we’re back to share some of what we’ve been up to and things we’ve been reading. And, of course, we won’t talk about Ukraine—directly at least.
For us, things have been hectic and stressful since the end of January, both in terms of living in a city that’s being occupied and the emotional labour required to do this work (on top of all our other work).
With that in mind, please consider becoming a paid subscriber to the podcast to not only access the full podcast episodes but to also access all the great research Erica does for the show notes. Bonus: if you become a founding member, you get access to special events with us (next one coming up soon!).
