Connections Radio – November 4, 2023

Hosts Laurie Fitz and Rick Bernardo join U.Conn. Professor of English, well-known author, and humorist, Gina Barreca, following-up our 9/23 show about the release of the 3rd and recent book of her edited “Fast Women” series: “Fast Fallen Women: 75 Essays of Flash Nonfiction” (Woodhall Press). As we check-in on what makes life deeply meaningful, our fun conversation includes the authentic values of feminism, how we live inside or outside of certain stories, the power of humor—and how the recent book’s celebration of the fallen woman gives whispered conversation a full voice that is long overdue. –  /
