Ep 91: Incompetence & Corruption in the White House

Ep 91: Incompetence & Corruption in the White House

August 4, 2020

We have a wide-ranging conversation about the rampant corruption and staggering incompetence in the White House, specifically focused on Jared Kushner and the bizarre news that his coordinated national COVID response plan was spiked for political reasons. We also discuss Trump's embarrassing interview with Axios, his casually authoritarian tweet about moving the US presidential election, and his active undermining of the USPS. Lots going on, none of it good! 

 
We see you: Anti-abortion clinics benefitting from PPP loans, Philadelphia judge and his wife benefitting from evictions, Aurora PD, Russell Hartley, Florida Navy Seal Museum, noose found outside Clermont medical clinic near Orlando, FL

Ep 89: What You Don’t Know Can’t Hurt Trump

Ep 89: What You Don’t Know Can’t Hurt Trump

July 22, 2020

Maria is solo this episode, while Erin's on her honeymoon - yay! This episode focuses on the quarantine depletion we all feel; personally, emotionally, professionally, cosmically as we cope with this endless public health crisis. Maria also discusses the unconstitutional, frightening raids happening in Portland, OR and then rants about a few other bullshit things from the past week (Roger Stone, Trump violating the emoluments clause...woof, it's like 2017 all over again). The title of the epsiode is based on a recent New York Times op-ed by Paul Krugman. 

 

We see you: Rep. Ted Yoho, Ginni Thomas, Roy Den Hollander

Ep 88: Evaluating Trump’s Campaign Promises

Ep 88: Evaluating Trump’s Campaign Promises

July 14, 2020
We run through Trump's campaign promises from 2016, and evaluate whether or not he's actually kept those promises. With the 2020 election coming up, we think it's important to take a look back at what Trump has actually accomplished in his presidency, and how it aligns with what he promised while campaigning. 

We see you: sexist vending machines, Oregon police allying themselves with proud boys, Royta Giles Jr., Bret Stephens, white people who refuse to accept the existence of white privilege, Des Moines PD

Ep 87: TERF Revisited: Q&A

Ep 87: TERF Revisited: Q&A

July 8, 2020
We spend some time discussing the tragic murder of Vanessa Guillén, but focus most of our time addressing listener questions and comments following our last episode on TERFs and J.K. Rowling. It was a good opportunity to dig deeper into the topic and 'show our work' - for lack of a better term. 

We see you: Trump, PPP loans, Starbucks in St. Paul's Target, Customs and Border Patrol, Anonymous white people who painted over a BLM mural in Martinez, CA, Betsy DeVos

Ep 86: J.K. Rowling is a TERF and we’re devastated

Ep 86: J.K. Rowling is a TERF and we’re devastated

June 30, 2020
The title says it all. We get into the disgusting arguments made by TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) and process our disappointment that our childhood hero could be so willfully ignorant and damaging towards the trans community. 
 

We see you: Russia's bounties and Trump's knowledge of them, Judge Les Hayes, Iowa passing a 24 hour waiting period mandate for those seeking abortions, Rockaway beach drownings, white couple pointing their guns at the protesters in St. Louis, state flags that still include the confederate flag

Ep 85: COVID-19, Racial Disparities, Performative Feminism

Ep 85: COVID-19, Racial Disparities, Performative Feminism

June 23, 2020
We cover a lot of ground in this news round-up of a week. William Barr obstructing justice for Trump again, the stressful NY and Kentucky primaries, a complicated update on CHOP, and then broader conversations on where we're at personally and as a country with COVID-19, racial disparities in the pandemic and beyond, and more on white women complicity and performative feminism. 

We see you: White people who post about black people posting "All lives matter," voter suppression in Kentucky (so, Mitch McConnell), Trump scaling back COVID testing, medical decision tools that disadvantage black patients, discrimination against corrections officers in the jail where Derek Chauvin is being held, LA County Sheriff's Department

Ep 84: White Women Complicity 

Ep 84: White Women Complicity 

June 17, 2020
Our main discussion focuses on the complicity of white women in the systemic oppression of Black people in this country over the last 400 years. We also tackle Gone with the Wind. It's a doozy. We also take a moment to assuage the rest of America's fears about CHAZ/CHOP. It's peaceful! There's a co-op! It's fine. 
 

We see you: Trump rally in Tulsa, Steven Carillo, The Bachelor franchise, Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau, Kayleigh McEnany, Robert Fuller and Malcolm Harsch

Ep 83: Police Brutality and Protests in 2020 (Part 2)

Ep 83: Police Brutality and Protests in 2020 (Part 2)

June 10, 2020

We continue our conversation on police brutality and the protests of the last two weeks, and address some questions and comments from conservatives regarding the movement to 'Defund the Police,' white privilege, the problem with "All Lives Matter," and the myth of 'black on black crime.'

Some resources and explainers we've found helpful:
