On Gaslighting, Holiday Giving, “Justice” Ponderings & more — #KatieSpeakShow Ep154 12/01/2018

In brief: I have been meaning to do a solo, bonus episode style main show for ages now. Thanks to a couple reschedulings, here it is! I catch listeners up on some show things, remind everyone why to NOT give to Salvation Army bell-ringers, recommend a fav podcast doing amazing reporting on a death row case headed to the Supreme Court, celebrate the origins of this year’s Rockefeller Center tree, and thank Merriam-Webster for their stellar shade and recent explanation of the term “gaslighting.”

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
