The Good Words Podcast celebrates Women's History Month with the word, "obstreperous"! Host Lynn Hickernell explains how activists, like suffragette Christabel Pankhurst, were forced to break rules in order to get women the vote. Host of new Kids Listen podcast "Activist, You!" Lindz Amer tells about why modern-day activists like Greta Thunberg need to be uncooperative, and family therapist Bonnie Witmer helps think about how to cope with an unruly little brother in a "Do Over" called, "The Board Game." The episode concludes with Stephanie Pepper's poem about some obstreperous felines, "Catfight."
