Double Reeds Don't March (w/ Jamie Loftus)
Writer, animator, and performer Jamie Loftus joins Greta this week to talk about being a standardized test girlie with scoliosis from Boston. Her high school was so big they pulled a Hogwarts and separated all the kids into "houses" by color. She floated between the theatre nerds, band nerds, school newspaper nerds, and even danced and ran track. Between wearing a back brace in 9th and 10th grade to getting a watermelon thrown at her lawn because of a love triangle gone wrong, Jamie overcame a lot and we're thankful she unpacked it here!
Listen to Jamie's podcasts "The Bechdel Cast", "My Year in Mensa", and "Goes to Church". Pre-order her book "Raw Dog": https://read.macmillan.com/promo/therawdogpreordercampaign
