This month's episode is legitimately very fun. We're talking about Kira Jane Buxton's novel, Hollow Kingdom. It's a semi-apocalyptic story about how the animals respond to the human race suddenly becoming incapacitated. Who better to talk about a book with a crow as a narrator than two-time bird attack survivor, Trish, and actual zoologist and biology teacher, Faye? Especially with a book like this that takes poetic freedom with things like evolution. It's a weird and wonderful story with a lot of heart, and we're very excited to share it with you this month.

Type-Two Fun Down Under
Today, Trish is talking with writer and casual adventurer, Kristin Warkentin, about Robyn Davidson’s travel memoir, Tracks. Davidson moved to Alice Springs in 1975 when she was in her early 20s with a dream to walk from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean on the west coast of Australia with some camels and her dear dog, Diggity. For two years she worked with camels and learned how to survive in the harsh desert, then started walking. In the book, Robyn writes about the Aboriginal Land Rights movement, language preservation, eschewing modern feminine standards to be a naked lady bleeding it out in the desert, and like, a lot, about camels. Get the book here. Check out the Darug featured in this song by The Preatures: Yanada . The super cool Google Earth Indigenous Language Project. Read Kristin’s work at girlintheworld.ca Fun Camel Fact: There are approximately 1 to 1.2 million feral camels in Australia, and their numbers are thought to be doubling every 8-9 years.

Self-Censoring Anger and Rage-Inducing Drinking Games
It’s that time of the month, and we are seeing red in this episode. For today’s show, I spoke with my friend, the fantastic Leanna Milburn, about Soraya Chemaly’s ode to female rage, Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women’s Anger. Be prepared for many exasperated “ughhh” noises. Women have a lot to be angry about, and this book is a fantastic primer on both the roots of our rage, and the social and physical implications of it. We did a lot of self-censoring this episode, which is also indicative of how deeply we’ve internalized the messaging that women aren’t permitted to show their anger (unless, of course, it falls nicely into some of the ‘noble’ categories, such as a mother’s anger on behalf of her children). What we do get into however, is: the way anger has played into our working lives; the women in rural Canadian communities who are travelling great distances at their own personal costs to give birth; the horrifying history of women’s healthcare; and a round of Never Have I Ever: The Microaggression Edition Grab yourself a drink and let's get into it.
