    Season 3 - Episode 7 - CULTURAL IDENTITY, APOLOGIES, GHOSTING

    Thanks for tuning in to another episode of Season 3 of the Wise Not Withered Podcast. Season 3 focuses on behind-the-scenes happenings and musings. The 5 key points this month are as follows:

    Strange for a young woman to be doing a project focused on older women? Many people have thought so!
    Characters that still need a writer or illustrator:
    Candace - illustrator
    Tala - writer
    Elizaveta - illustrator
    Blind Assassin - both writer & illustrator

    Cultural belonging - being biracial and my experience sharing that with writers and illustrators; getting triggered by one writer that felt super connected to her own heritage
    Respectfully letting people down; my thoughts on apologizing
    A little painful and I feel resistance in looking through emails I sent over the years; feelings of shame coming up in messages never answered; my thoughts on ghosting
