Untamed

6 months ago

This week the girls are discussing the highly requested book from their listeners, Untamed, by Glennon Doyle. Delanie shares some points and anecdotes from the audiobook with Kelsey as they reflect on their own social conditioning. Untamed encourages people to question their “training” and instead go inward to make decisions, and to ultimately trust their inner knowing. It explores misogyny, racism, religious indoctrination, homophobia - all the ways that patriarchy keeps people “tamed.” Kelsey and Delanie also share some personal stories about being raised as girls in America.
