SHOWNOTES:

My podcast guests today are Ellen Desmond and Lauren Nickodemus, the founders of Monstrous Regiment, an indy press based in Edinburgh. Lauren and Ellen created Monstrous Regiment much like a social enterprise, putting inclusivity and intersectionality at its core. Their publications focus on themes of feminism, sexuality, and gender.
