"This is an historic moment - for the Congress, and for the women of this country. It is a moment for which we have waited more than 200 years. Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just waiting; women were working. Never losing faith, we worked to redeem the promise of America, that all men and women are created equal. For our daughters and granddaughters, today we have broken the marble ceiling."
-- Nancy Pelosi
In honor of the first female Speaker of the House, DJDeedle welcomes you to the femisphere.
This week's Deedlecast takes a well-deserved swing at the patriarchy. Just remember as you listen that any patriarchy-affirming stereotypes you may encounter are included for purely ironic purposes.
If you have some time stop by some of DJDeedle's favorite denizens of the femisphere and show them some love:

Caution: Because patriarchy-smashing isn't delicate work, patriarchy smashing Deedlecasts contain a few rude words.

has a hero. Some have more than one.
This Deedlecast features a host of heroes and legends, most of whom are imaginary
and silly. We end the Deedlecast, however,
with a serious hero - a genuine legend.
Caution: One of the heroes in this Deedlecast uses a rude word or two.
Remember, Saturday, January 13, all the real heroes will be at:

As is customary at the start of a new year, this week's Deedlecast reflects on the past to music from a simpler, more carefree, time. It was a period in American history when the only things we worried about were the creep of international communism and complete and utter nuclear destruction at the hands of the decidedly less fashionable Soviet Union. Ah, the memories. Good times.
