Jazz chanteuse and cultural icon Phat Man Dee joins Petticoat Rule to talk about activism through music, respecting history through your creations, and learning to embrace your uniqueness. We hear all about her path to her weirdness, the many influences and teachers she's had along the way, and her goals to contribute positivity to society and foment advocacy for the downtrodden. Included in this episode is a song from her personal collection, Hey Phat Chick!, as well as one from her collaboration with Liz Berlin of Rusted Root, Social Justice Disco: Songs to Fight Fascists By.
