Fifty Feminist States considers accessibility to be incrediblyimportant and recognizes that transcripts make podcasts more accessibleto communities. While crowdfunded support allowed for completetranscripts of the first season to be readily available, that provedmore challenging this season. If transcripts of the episodes would helpmake this podcast more accessible to you, please email amelia@fiftyfeministstates.com for access to the rough drafts.
