Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for another week of great conversation. I wanted to take this time to remind everyone that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy.  Please e-mail me either an original post or a cross post to participate.  I very much look forward  to enlarging  the conversations here.

On our last podcast, Monica and I had the honour of interviewing Melissa from Shakesville and Cara from the Curvature and Feministe.  Fortunately for us, one of the Shakesville readers gracefully transcribed the conversation.  You can find the transcript here.

Tomorrow, Monica of TransGriot, Allison McCarthy (our favourite Gus) and I will be interviewing Isis King of America’s Next Top Model.  The show will be at 8pm EST.  Please feel free to call in at (347) 326-9452 or ask questions in the chat room.


Below you will find links to a few posts that I found interesting this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.  When you are done, don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
