It’s been quiet ’round these parts, lately. We know.
Daisy has officially moved to Texas effective this weekend, y’all. I’m choosing not to be sad about it because I still see her face every morning during our live videos, and I’m just gonna pretend that she’s still down the street. And we have a September playdate scheduled already, so I’m looking forward to that. So yeah. I’ve chosen complete denial of reality as a coping mechanism.
Daisy’s move, our full time jobs, and our podcast commitments have meant that this site, our baby, has not gotten the attention it deserves. We hate that, but we also have had to devote the bulk of our energy to the projects that feed our families first. I can’t speak for our other remaining interns (Natalie, Karen Ashley, Ksenya, Rachel) but can only assume that regular life has been time consuming for them as well, and since this isn’t what feeds their families either, we can’t ask them to give us time commitments beyond what they are comfortable with.
To that end, we are, as always, DELIGHTED to hear from chicks who are interested in contributing content here. LT Conrad is just one of those chicks! She is a conservative college student (YES THEY STILL EXIST!) in Texas, and discovered our podcast during the Great Lockdown of 2020. We think this site will be a great outlet for her to share her thoughts about the current college experience, especially as a conservative, and we are stoked for you to learn more about her when she introduces herself.
Plus, she loves dogs. I’m sure she’ll be introducing you to her own doggos in her intro.
Welcome, LT! Can’t wait to hear your perspective!
