Delma and Shadiin dive into the heatwaves people are experiencing caused by climate change, returning to being social, and the happiness of a true 40-hour work week, which is all too uncommon in the public service and nonprofit realms. Kellie Richardson joins as a guest this week, a writer and artist educator born and raised in Tacoma Washington. Her work explores the intersection of race, class and gender with a specific emphasis on themes of love, loss and longing. As the 2017 to 2019 Tacoma Poet Laureate, Kellie has worked to ensure literary arts are both accessible to and representative of the diversity of that community. Kellie has authored two collections of poetry, “What Us Is” and “The Art of Naming My Pain,” published by Blue Cactus Press. Find her at and her works at
