Props to the self-sufficient gardener (Jason Akers) for the correction. It was not he who proclaimed something or other about the “women folk.” It was Jack Spirko, of the Survival Podcast. As I noted in my round up (not to be confused with Round Up, which I roundly condemn), I’ve spent a bit of time recently listening to various gardening and garden-related podcasts. I should have been more careful to take notes because they did start to run together for me. Unfortunately, I ran the self-sufficient gardener headfirst into the survival podcast guy, and ended up mistakenly attributing a confounding phrase (“women folk”) to Akers when I think it was Spirko who said it. It’s not that I could feign to be offended on behalf of women folk. They can speak for themselves (they’re allowed, I think). It just interrupted the flow of the podcast (why is this all sounding so womanly?). It was weird when I heard it on the podcast, and I assumed the guy was joking, till I didn’t. There was no drum roll, no punchline, and I just waited to see if he was going to say anything about the fact that he’d just said something about the women folk cleaning the game that the men had caught. I mean, seriously? Well, I guess so. That or he just forgot the drum roll and dropped the punchline. Anyway, maybe there are parts of the world that really are, as they say, not Brooklyn. No harm, no foul. Akers straightened me out (and pointed out that his wife would not allow him to be sexist – right on, wifey!). And I realized that maybe Spirko was getting all the sexism out of his system before bringing the impressive Chef Maribel (who needs to work on her marketing — the site is just weird — tell us, please, more about the program to help feed the hungry and less about whose famous cousin you cooked for) onto the show to kick some girly butt…maybe Spirko’s?
