Catch me this weekend on NPR's "Weekend Edition" (UPDATED W/LINK)

I had a wonderful conversation with host Liane Hansen and Ann Friedman of Feministing about public perceptions of Michelle Obama. Hear it during the 8 a.m. hour, this Sunday, on NPR's "Weekend Edition."

Hear it.

8 a.m. Tami? Just kidding! I'll try and if I miss it, I'll def catch it on archives.

Are you having a podcast later in the day?

Tami said...

I know...I know...Sassy J. 8 a.m. is earlier than I get up on a Sunday. :)

No podcast this weekend, but I'm working on something for next weekend.

I am a regular listener of Weekend Edition and was just thrilled to be introduced to you and to hear your comments about Michelle Obama. You were able to positively bring forward the perspective of a Black Woman. Thank You. An added bonus for me, is I am now aware of your blog and will be reading it religiously.

thanks...glad I have discovered your blog

you were great this morning

two questions...

don't you think if Michelle Obama stopped 'dressing classy' (assuming she wants to) that people would stop talking about her "fashion sense?'

also--women should definitely have the choice between career and and stay at home.

why not me, too?

Tami said...

Timothy,

Mmmm...I think if Michelle Obama lacked fashion since, then she'd get criticized for that.

Also, ITA about men having the same choices as women re: career vs. staying at home. It is to women's advantage to encourage men to make these choices, too. I think parenting will not be taken seriously until it is seen as the arena of men as well as women.

Tami, on my job, when something is transmitted over the radio that is true, dispatchers say, "That is correct."

You spoke the truth, and I commend you for it. I especially agree with your perception of the noted designers taking a swipe at MB. What more business can she bring to them that they don't already have? Why not give the lesser known designers a place in the spot light? I believe the swipe was generated more out of greed than anything else.

As far as being a Mom-in-Chief, there is no greater job on the planet than raising future citizens who by your nurturing will turn out to be decent human beings. Go MB!

Could the huge popularity of Michelle Obama be a sign of changing attitudes in the fashion industry? Vogue featured Michelle Obama on its cover recently. Michelle Obama in particular has ushered in new era of style and entertaining.
