Lynn Ruth Miller calls herself the oldest comedienne on either side of the pond. She’s 86 and her life is full of stories! Lynn Ruth has had seemingly endless good and bad luck simultaneously, from starting her own CBS show with no experience, to trying to get a journalism job as a woman in the sixties, to her fight against society and her eating disorder. Her struggle with ageism and sexism will make you angry and her perseverance is endearing as hell. Though she never did get that dream job, she did write eleven books, three television shows, a number of comedy sets and is still going strong! Lynn Ruth is tough as nails and she will crack you up all through this episode.

SYGNT is six months old, YAY! This month, Dr. Angie Benham (formerly Angie Evans) tells the story of and helping fight for integration as a junior at Van Buren High School in 1958. This was just a year after the “Little Rock Nine” had to be escorted to school by federal troops thanks to Brown vs. the Board of Education supreme court ruling. We discuss the parallels with today’s Black Lives Matter movement and how we hope for change. We also get into her life as a missionary on the Navajo reservation, her career as a psychologist (she is still working at 77!) and the psychology of God and our parents. Angie tells us about how the best moment of her life happened only recently, and as always, provides us with great advice. This is certainly a worthy sixth anniversary episode folks, enjoy! Don’t forget, BLACK LIVES MATTER! NEW!
