#Election2016 Catharsis Part 2 w/@etoilee8 — #KatieSpeakShow Ep48 08/06/2016

In brief: As I said in last week’s “in brief,” I don’t cover the political horserace much on this show. But it’s convention season and this election is particularly important thanks to a likely four Supreme Court appointments under the next president. So, I have a two-part election catharsis for those who are less than enthused, tired of the misogyny, ready for November to get here already — and yet still engaged. Last week was part one with Rachel Vorona Cote; this week is part two with Aja Barber!

Seriously, read the replies I got to my #ReplaceCrazyWith, Trump edition rant. I’ve RTed all the ones I saw, but there may be others. Some of y’all are really amazing and creative. And accurate!

I think on the show I said this song was from her self-titled album because my iTunes master list of Normandie’s catalog occasionally isn’t right. (She was kind enough to get me some of her songs before they were officially released.) It is, in fact, from “Normandie Wilson is Tired of Being Nice” — her latest.
