“Secretly Timid is a podcast with many layers. It’s pop culture, it’s news, it’s personal diary, but all done with an adult humor and intelligence of an impromptu debate amongst the best of friends. Politics juxtaposed with The Walking Dead. Feminism two breaths away from a discussion of Mad Men. NSFW humor riddles this show, so put your big boy/girl pants on and listen!”~ Joe K in Dallas

Black Doll does Other Pop : Queering the black female image
Black Doll, a representative of human oddity in melanin rich skin, stands laughing at the threshold where the world and I meet.

Nan Little Kirkpatrick has a B.A. in English composition from the University of North Texas, and who cares? During the day, Nan does things that absolutely no one wants to know about – the life of a professional copywriter is not as glamorous as you think. At night, she makes art, plays bass in a band, and threatens to put on puppet shows for her husband but never does. She reads and talks about feminism A LOT. Oh, and she half-heartedly maintains a blog at www.nanarchist.blogspot.com.
