  2. Is Xine’s photo above taken in the ADWhite library?? I’m enjoying the new podcast (I’m in withdrawal from Witch Please so I’ve started listening from the beginning again). Thanks for making this middle aged suburban Mom (and scientist) think a little more.


  3. OK I am listening to this podcast after inhaling Oh Witch Please, and I am loving everything.
    Around minute 10 especially hit me really hard. I have incredibly broad shoulders, and recently I started weightlifting in earnest to try and feel stronger, which is only making them broader.
    I love traditionally feminine things, but they aren’t… made for me, and that can be really hard.
    Last year I ripped a dress that I was trying on for a wedding. I felt like The Hulk.
    I actually cried in a dressing room last month and my best friend had to come in and help me get out of this really pretty flowy cold-shoulder floral top. She had picked it out for me to try on, and I got stuck in it. It was horrible.
    Hearing Xine talk about how they experienced a similar frustration was so… validating? Anyway, thank you. This meant a lot.
