Dirt in Your Skirt Gets Its Own Song!


Dirt in Your Skirt has its own anthem!

Dirt in My Skirt by Emily Potter. 


Emily Potter is a gift-based economy musician and I had the chance to interview her on the podcast (episode 82). During the interview she talked about a challenge she created for herself in 2018, writing one new original song a month. After the podcast was over I reached out to her to see if she wanted to create a song for Dirt in Your Skirt.




That’s right Dirt in Your Skirt would get its own song for use on the podcast. Emily and I chatted over a couple emails and today she came out with the original song and lyrics for Dirt in Your Skirt and the podcast.


Whether you want to call it an anthem, call to arms, empowering moment, or just something you find yourself singing along to, it’s incredibly cool and exciting to have a song to represent Dirt in Your Skirt.


The few friends I have shared it with this morning have all said they feel the brand, myself, and the podcast all in this two minutes of song/storytelling. While I am sure it is not for everyone I am pretty happy with the end product and a huge thank you to Emily Potter for the hard work she put into creating this original piece.


From Emily’s Patreon Page:

It’s a girl power song.

A few months ago I was featured on a podcast called Dirt in Your Skirt.

This podcast audience is listening to stories of outrageous women stepping out of the norm and conquering their most intimate fears. The women featured are not only taking a stand and living authentic lives…

Dirt in Your Skirt women are leading the charge.

The award-winning host, Margaret Schlachter, asked me to write the podcast’s theme song! Such an amazing honor.

From one leader of the world to another.



Starting tomorrow the song Dirt in My Skirt will be part of the podcast moving forward. It’s incredible to have the podcast completely a unique production including unique music for the show!




Lyrics and Music by Emily Potter

She said I had to stop caring
What they think of me
What they want to see
What a girl’s supposed to be
I woke up this morning
In a cold sweat warning
To give another way a whirl
Be the leader of the world

Wanna be brave today
When the crowd is shunning
I’ll be the one running
Getting dirt in my skirt
I stomp my foot down
In my boots and queen’s gown
Yeah I’m that kind of girl
I’m the leader of the world

So meet me in the pines
Why watch from the sidelines
We’re the diamonds, we’re the pearls
We’re the leaders of the world
While they call us crazy
We’ll make crowns of daisies
Coronate our braids and curls
As leaders of the world

Check out Emily’s work and foundation.

    • Made it to Atlanta to cover World’s Toughest Mudder. Every year I get nostalgic about the first year of WTM in 2011.
Can’t wait to cover the action for @mudrunguide. With the temps predicted in the 30’s overnight I excited to see how the new venue plays out.
Excited to get to work tomorrow.
