Tina Fey Takes You Inside The Hidden World Of Girls

Illustration for article titled Tina Fey Takes You Inside The Hidden World Of Girls

"From the dunes of the Sahara to a slumber party in Manhattan, from the dancehalls of Jamaica to a racetrack in Ramallah, Tina Fey takes us around the world into the secret life of girls and the women they become. Sound-rich, evocative, funny, and powerful—stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities. Of women who crossed a line, blazed a trail, changed the tide."

If that doesn't sound like the best use of the next two hours of your life, I don't know what does.

But if you still need some extra incentive to listen to this, Tina Fey is doing a pretty killer "soothing NPR voice" throughout the series and I want to fall asleep to there.

I just listened to the first hour and it was amazing. I was about to start the second one, but my friend called and I have to meet her in half an hour. Grrr. I loved the story of the Irish Travellers and the Brave Hearts! I had no idea about either of them. Thanks Jez for always bringing wonderful women's stories into my life. Those were very awe inspiring.

I even liked the single telephone call from the girl who told the story about how her mother has a 'coming of age makeup party for her and her three sisters when they all turned 13. I wish I had something like that in my past, but unfortunately my family has nothing like this. If I had daughters I'd definitely begin a tradition with them. It's beautiful bonding experience.

And how crazy are those Traveller weddings? I immediately looked them up after the girl started talking about their elaborate dresses. Love it! Can't wait to get back home so I can listen to the second hour.
