Troll or Derby: An Interview with Red Tash

So once upon a time I was roaming the Twitterverse and I ran into this delightfully strange woman named Red Tash.  She seemed like somebody I’d like.  Now I know that not only is she insanely awesome and cooler than I’ll ever be, but she’s talented to boot.  She’s launching her extremely enjoyable book titled Troll or Derby ( which … Read More
