She is also conducting a survey called ‘Rock and Metal Music Mothering: The Role of Musical Parenting’ and interviewing moms with metal/punk backgrounds.
They discuss Mormonism and Post Mormonism, Salt Lake City punk (of course), academic conferences on metal music, Wendy O Williams from the Plasmatics, etc etc.
