Christmas Day, I lost my dear Granny. The woman who taught me to sew, who showed me incredible kindness , and who showered me with unconditional love and acceptance. I've been reflecting on our special bond, but also how important the women in my life are to me. Women not only rule the world. but influence and watch over mine. This episode is a testament to the women who inspire us, guide us, and teach us. I interview my friend/songwriter/singer Rebecca Rego. She has released a new album inspired by her connection to a book of short stories by the writer Lucia Berlin, specifically her collection of works titled " A Manual for Cleaning Women: Selected Stories"  Rebecca plays live for us her  song titled "Mama," from her new album " Songs for Cleaning Women," and it's not to be missed.
