In the interim, a very cool first-person recap from the Women's March on Washington that features my wife and kids (one of them by name) popped up in the most random of places. My 15 year-old attends high school with the daughter of D.C. area radio personality Robb Spewak. In the most random of coincidences, Spewak's friend and podcasting partner Katie von Hermann came to town for the Women's March and landed a seat on the same bus that my wife and kids took into the city, with Spewak's daughter in tow. Since she and my daughter are friends, they decided to pair up with my family, and wound up spending the day together.
Von Hermann and Spewak recorded a special episode of their podcast yesterday, recounting her experience. It's alternately inside-jokey, silly, and moving, and though it's 72 minutes long, I really enjoyed it. Those of you that attended will relate, and those that didn't will find yourself transported to that incredible scene.
And if anyone can figure out how to embed it, they've got more skeelz than me.
