First, here is some feedback from host DeAnna:
How FUN was today’s interview? Deirdre is hysterical! I wish I was in the Bay Area to see/hear one of her presentations…good grief.
Best quotes of the interview:
“the squirrel stole my thong…” (title of Deirdre’s upcoming book…can’t WAIT to hear that story!)
“you can be creative…or you can sell crack”
This & many more wonderful gems were given in this really fun half hour.
Deirdre is a historical costume designer who’s work has been featured on Showtime, Renaissance Faire magazine & other publications, a Shakesperean actor & lover of English drawing room comedies. She is an author, writer & actress. She loves teaching kids actual history & inspiring them! Her thoughts are that “history doesn’t NEED any embellishment!” And I have to agree with her.
Catch up with Deirdre on Facebook: ncrf_queen or Deirdre Sargent

Deirdre will also be our guest next week on Kick A** Women in History when we look at the life of Queen Elizabeth I….YEA!
It was a really fun interview and I had a great time. You can download the show for free on itunes. Here is the link. I will post another reminder when I do my Queen Elizabeth interview next Monday.
I think it is so great to have an outlet to showcase women and their accomplishments both historical and contemporary.
This afternoon I am going to be on blog radio talking about my work with school kids, teaching history with Presenters of Living History, my writing and general empowerment through entertainment. I will be on next week at the same time talking about Queen Elizabeth. If you can’t listen live, you can download the show after the fact for free and listen.
