DDD #45 I Am a Woman With a Song Inside Her

On this episode:
Vacay, meh, fashionista and about 20 other words first uttered/recorded in 1992 are turning 25. Being “mom” is cool, so all DDD fans are MOMMMM. We break down historic vs. historical and explain what the heck a retronym is. Plus, Morgan addresses her childhood issues with bear hair and gender confusion (as in, people often mistook her for a boy).
