Heartening Powerful Inspiring

I’m a 61 year old American who had never heard of Julia Gillard. After listening to her interview on the Guilty Feminist podcast, I looked up her extraordinary (and thrilling) misogyny speech, which then led me to subscribe to this podcast. She is an excellent interviewer, and I have been so inspired by her and the women she brings on her show. Thank you a thousand times.
