Actually, WEEI is full of talkers -- they just talk about different  

Sportscaster/writer Wendy Nix has been on WEEI's Big Show several  
times; she's definitely shown she can hold her own in the  
testosterone-fuelled environment there.  Back before the Boston Glob  
put its self-imposed ban on its writers appearing on WEEI, we used to  
be treated to frequent guest-host gigs by Nancy Marrapesse  
(spelling?) and Jackie MacMullan.

So, if the Glob would relent, then we'd hear more female voices on  
WEEI, I'd think...
