2019 Year End Link Roundup

I haven’t written much this year but Karen and I hit our goal of making 12 episodes of Feminist Coffee Hour and we plan to continue next year. My family is well – my son is growing and amazing me every day. Adam is working on a new book you might like.

I’ve been tweeting about the ongoing saga of the surprise bill for my gallbladder surgery but I’m pretty sure it’s going to work out ok. I’m very lucky to be in good health and have the resources to stand up for my rights.

I organized a Lights for Liberty vigil in July which was probably my political action highlight of the year. I also raised money for abortion funds as I will every year hopefully until the Hyde Amendment is gone.

Veep and Crazy Ex Girlfriend ended this year and they’re really two of the greatest shows of all time so check them out if you haven’t.

I also LOVED the Good Omens miniseries and it will make you so happy if you need a lift. The book is great too. (RIP Terry Pratchett)

I was lucky enough to see several plays including Burn This, Hamilton, Betrayal and The Half Life of Marie Curie. I loved seeing Kate Mulgrew on stage so much an although it has closed, there is an audiobook she narrated which is probably the next best think.
