Marion “Jody” Estill
Marion and I met on Twitter because we have both been called heartless Nazis and worse for the views we shared, which is odd since she’s a staunch Democrat and I’m …well…not. Ms. Estill marched with Martin Luther King. She’s been tear-gassed, fire-hosed, and arrested as a REAL activist in the 1960s. She still fancies herself a liberal, although she’s not pro-Hillary. She’s got a good head on her strong shoulders. Marion’s daughter is a Trump supporter, and they have even developed a “safe” word to keep their conversations civil. Thank God for moms like Marion.
Marion and I talked extensively this week, and I found her to be witty, highly intelligent, and big-hearted. I begged her to be on our show, and she graciously agreed. She was calling in from stormy Alabama, so her connection was terrible, but we still had a great conversation.
We got a request for a classic Dog Abby episode at firstname.lastname@example.org …I think I have an idea who the requester was…
