Episode 5 - International Working Women's Day w/ Chelsea & Chelsea!

Hi everyone! Katherine was on a vay-kay this week, so Chelsea asked her friend Chelsea to be ~*~SPECIAL GUEST CO-HOST~*~ and they took over the podcast for International {Working} Women's Day!

We get into being in solidarity with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, make up an International [Working] Woman's Day jingle, explain why FOSTA is shitty for everyone and especially hurts sex workers, and we drank a lot of fizzy water and had to pause and burp a lot so there's that, too.  Enjoy this very special International [Working] Women's Day episode everyone!

But, I'm going to ask around and see if there is anything local. If you know of a group like Haven in your community, let us know so we can share it here, too]
