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.

    • The old saying goes... give a man a fish they will have a meal. Teach a man to fish and they will eat for the rest of their life...
I was so young when I learned to fish it’s just always been a part of my life. I sometimes take the skill for granted because it’s always been there.
Over the weekend I got to share this skill with a couple of my nephews and nieces.
One in particular is the only one in his family not into running and hiking. Reed is more into his card games Ukio (or something like that) and Pokémon and the tv series that go along with it.
A week or two before the family reunion Reed told his mom he wanted a fishing pole 🎣. His mom said try it first.
Well within minutes of his first cast he was hooked. Watching his face bring in his first trout was magical.
After he caught it he said “I hope I like the way it tastes!” His uncle helped him clean the fish and he ran it back down to the truck (it was a 2.5 mile hike up to the lake) cooked it up with his uncle and said “Yum” as he took his first bite.
The world has another fisherman and he talked about the experience the rest of the reunion. I am one proud aunt.

    • Five days of digital detox at my inlaws yearly family reunion. This year the family changed it up with a camping trip.
Five days in the mountains with no cell service. I didn’t take many photos but l’m a sucker for a sunrise photo with my dogs.
Walking away with over 25 miles of trails under my feet, a couple hours of fishing, teaching kids to fish (probably the highlight), high mountain lake swimming, and taking some alone time to do a 14 mile trail hike/run to get to see the sunrise at over 10,500 feet.

    • You know it’s another hot one when the bees are bearding like this.
Bearding is kinda like hanging out on the porch on a hot day when it’s too hot in a non-air conditioned house.
Hanging out and trying to keep cool.

    • Probably one of the best books I have read/listened to recently. Honored that I get to interview Roshi Joan Halifax this afternoon.
Can’t wait to have discussions about edge states, her awakening to the inner self, and capture just a sliver of her wisdom.

Taking the moments to stop, reflect, and just be are lessons I continually learn from our fur kids.
