Pamela Price of Red,White and Grew is someone I have elevated to the level of "co-conspirator" in my life. And it really doesn't get much better than that.
I met Pamela on Twitter and then we became Facebook chat friends- and then there's the famous podcast where we interviewed her and she admitted openly that the phone interview wasn't enough to keep her attention so she was violently scrubbing things clean as we spoke. And you can hear it.
We are cut from similar cloth, but mine is way tackier.
