Podcast with yours truly

Amanda interviewed me for her podcast this week, and you should check it out. The whole thing is worth a listen — she talks about personhood amendments and “hook-up culture,” and her and I discuss what this election means for women’s rights, reproductive health, and the LGBT movement.

A word of warning: I say “you know” like it’s my job. My new resolution is to remove that phrase from my vocabulary, because it’s a really annoying verbal tick.

    One of my friends ends every sentence with “and stuff like that,” which is way more annoying than “you know.”

    Just so you know. And stuff like that.

    If it makes you feel any better, John Lennon had the same verbal tick. Yoko Ono still has it.

    Well okay, that might only make me feel better in such a situation :)

    Jill, I’ve never been a “you know” person–but went through it with “seriously” and “man” (yes, embarrassing as hell!) and various other awful things.

    And all like that. (close to Lauren’s but not quite!)

    I started making little hash marks on my wrist and it made me very aware, but didn’t stop me completely. I usually only stopped one word/phrase when I replaced it with something else. Seriously! Oh man!

    (And good luck!)

    I have the “seriously” Grey’s Anatomy tick. I also say “totally” a lot. And “dude.” My verbal ticks are apparently stuck mainly in the 90s.

    Its all about, “you know what I mean.” Which is way worse than “you know”, because it takes longer and is more noticeable.
