This week on YIP Mary and Tammy are joined by returning guest Carol for the first ever YIP Panel! Taking questions from YIP listeners, the Crew strives to do their best to give coherent opinions...or at the very least, to stay (sort of) on topic! What are the ethics of fusing? Were the 1970s the Golden Age of bellydance? What's up with undercutting other dancers? WE WILL TELL YOU THE ANSWERS!!!! And...you may not agree with us, but whose podcast is this?!? Ha HA! We win.
