Um YAS!

Yo this podcast is freakin’ amazing! As a ten year old rebel girl I love learning about woman who changed the world. I hope you do the less known parts of the most famous people this month (Woman’s History Month). You guys are awesome.
One more thing. I have a request. Doing LGT women is totally cool with me, but no Q or B because B means that they are truely men. And no matter what people pretent to be, they are what they are born as. And people are never Q. You are never “question” you ar what you are born as. But I think LGT is totally cool
