I actively look for ways now to talk about who I am because I want to live as openly as I can, but I also want to inspire those who living and being themselves is a tremendous effort and takes a tremendous amount of courage.

Me: I wanna do something

EPISODE 10 - yr hosts (again)

Here’s the tenth episode of Swoonstep, a podcast where brilliant, cute, hilarious women talk music and crushes. This week on Swoonstep, your babely hosts are back solo to talk about a topic near and dear to their hearts: women in music and pop culture criticism. We also discuss our favorite music in 2014 so far. Plus, we cover a couple of weird crushes that just…haven’t come up in an episode of Swoonstep so far, including Crystal’s love of cheeseball Pitbull, Megan’s love of sad boy Burial, and our dislike of indie rockers (sorry boys).

We say this every week, but if you’re a woman (or non-cis dude) who wants to talk about music and talk about musician crushes, please reach out. Swoonstep aims to be a space where women are allowed to rant and rave and swoon with abandon because, for real, women are really the best. Women are thoughtful and deliberate and kind, biting and hilarious and brilliant. That’s important to us, so come hang out with us and let us hear your thoughts. Thanks for listening!

My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.

I needed this. Thank you.
