Minisode 2.3: Women in Power

July’s moon is known as the Blessing Moon, Buck Moon, and Lavender Moon, and today’s full moon is particularly magical. Not only is it a deep red blood moon, but it is also the longest lunar eclipse of this century! So take the chance to harness some of that powerful energy!

In this minisode we discuss some of the incredible women running for office this November–and rant a fair bit about the realities of living in a patriarchal society.

Our theme song is “Moon and Spruce” by Sarah Littledrum.
