I’m starting back up with podcasts in celebration of Women’s History Month. My regular time is 7:30pm EST, but tomorrow’s podcast is at 1:00pm EST. Here is the link to the Talkshoe website.
Or, remember you can always hit the dark blue button to the right.
Ok, don’t talk bad about me: I know I’m on CP Time letting you know about this lastest podcast, but I’m hoping if you miss it tomorrow, you can download it anyway.
Sometimes, y’all, the podcast time will be a little flexible, ’cause writers are pretty busy people, AND some of my writers are parents–and you know what that means right? That means, folks be trying to talk to me in between looking over homework and cooking hot dogs for dinner. Do not judge the parents and the hot dogs. They do what they gotta do.
But now, the fabulous Kelly Norman Ellis is a Certified Southern Belle, so she cooks from scratch. Gumbo. Serious.
(I cook from scratch, too, so I got my CSB Papers. You better ask somebody about my corn bread and biscuits.)
So join me tomorrow! Kelly’s bio is below, as is the cover of her wonderful book, Tougaloo Blues.
