ink & peat podcast / episode 22


Carmen Kissel-Verrier grew up on a ranch in Alberta, tagged by her schoolmates the Butcher Shop Girl. In her striking memoir, Carmen talks about ranch life, working in her mom’s slaughterhouse, and striking out on her own to follow the allure of big money — first in the oil fields and then as an exotic entertainer. In ink & peat episode 22, Carmen shares how writing her memoir helped her heal and work through secrets she’s kept for decades. She offers her life story as an example of possibility to those who struggle with fitting in or who could use encouragement in embracing their maverick selves.
