A Heads Up! + ON REPEAT: Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. (1970)
We don't have a new episode this week for one very good reason! Cate and I are hitting the road for an epic road trip adventure to the home of all things GenX. Yep, I’m talking about Seattle, WA!
We’re going to try to podcast on the road (so stay tuned for that), but in the meantime, in honor of the theatrical release of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret., we'd like to offer a very special encore presentation of our Season 1 episode where Cate and I cover this Judy Bloom classic, while sharing our own coming to terms with coming of age. It’s all bras and periods and hormones, so take special care while listening!
Because this 1970 literary classic holds a special place in the heart of nearly every GenX woman, they’ll explore the book’s timeless themes involving friendship, puberty, and the hard questions we dare ask while taking those brave first steps toward self-discovery.
And yes, the besties spill their secret sisterhood stories involving their first "menstroo-ation", first kisses, and first bras, along with their earliest sex ed memories and the wild wondering of what it all means.
