If there are still men out there complaining about women and vocal fry, show them an episode of the triple-battered Black Sails and tell them to shove it...
frandroid: "End the lock-out" with a CBC logo shaped into a lock (cbc)
I spent a lot of time on the road in the last two weeks, so I listened to a lot of CBC Radio, and God (!) bless them, they're the only national non-native institution in this country taking Reconciliation seriously. On two different shows, I listened to strong indigenous women speak. One of them was Iskwe, who I believe is a musician, who also DJs a music show on the CBC. (Her tweets occasionally cross my timeline, even though I haven't followed her until now.) The other one, whose name I forget, was a PhD student (at McGill or maybe Concordia), formerly a homeless woman, talking on a panel about homeless youth. Both of these women had a vocal fry (no disparagement intended) which was not that far from that expressed by Cara Gee on the Expanse. It was a delightful parallel to find. So Sabotabby, there's more of that delightful accent out there, though none so intense as Drummer's. :)
