Ep 179: ”Aging Gracefully”

Ep 179: ”Aging Gracefully”

July 28, 2022
We discuss the concept of "aging gracefully." The societal standards for "aging gracefully" differ between men and women, and the costs of anti-aging techniques (skincare, botox, fillers, surgery, nutrition, exercise regimens) also make this a class issue.

Ep 177: Other Terrible SCOTUS Decisions

Ep 177: Other Terrible SCOTUS Decisions

July 7, 2022
There were plenty of other terrible SCOTUS decisions handed down this term, and we take a look at a few of them. The Washington Post summarized it best - "The emboldened 6-3 conservative majority, with three nominees of President Donald Trump, wasted little time expanding the rights of gun owners to carry firearms in public, strengthening the role of religion in public life and sharply curtailing the Biden administration’s power to combat climate change." Conservatives have the court they've been dreaming of (and planning for) for 50 years. It's going to get worse. 

We see you:  Andrew Bogut, AirTags, Uvalde County district attorney, Ohio State Rep. Jean Schmidt, Britney Griner's case, Biden aides not being prepared for the Roe decision

Ep 176: Roe Overturned

Ep 176: Roe Overturned

June 30, 2022
The dreaded day has come. The landmark Supreme Court case granting women the constitutional right to an abortion, Roe v. Wade, has been overturned after nearly 50 years. It was a 6-3 decision written by Justice Alito. This overtly political decision has ominous implications for not only for reproductive health access, but for constitutional protections for contraceptives, gay marriage, and intimate sexual conduct. It's a dark fucking time to be a woman or person with a uterus in the United States.

Ep 175: January 6th Committee Hearings So Far

Ep 175: January 6th Committee Hearings So Far

June 23, 2022

We discuss the January 6th Committee hearings so far. So much crime and fraud perpetrated by Trump - we knew this, but somehow there are STILL so many stunning revelations about how involved he truly was in direct efforts to overturn our free and fair election.

We see you: Brazil court denying 11 year old an abortion, Eric Greitens, FINA, Steve King, Elon Musk, Congress swiftly passing a law protecting SCOTUS families like Ginni Thomas while sleeping on desperately needed gun safety legislation for the rest of the country

Ep 173: The Depp vs. Heard Verdict is Depressing

Ep 173: The Depp vs. Heard Verdict is Depressing

June 9, 2022
We discuss the verdict in the Depp vs Heard case, and all the ways it depresses us! It sets a terrible precedent for domestic violence cases moving forward, it doesn't seem rooted in fact, it might be seen as the nadir of the #metoo movement, and just overall adds to our sense that the country is in a dark place which will only become darker come the midterms. 
 
We see you: Men on the internet criticizing Simone Johnson, SCOTUS, Pregnancy Registry in Poland, Tempe Police, Jill Biden

Ep 172: The Police Response in Uvalde

Ep 172: The Police Response in Uvalde

June 2, 2022
We discuss the continued fallout from last Tuesday's mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The more we learn about the police's inept response the worse it gets. There were police on the scene within minutes and outside the classroom door for nearly an hour before intervention, despite repeated calls from the children from inside the classroom. It is unfathomable how such a disconnect managed to persist for this hour. So much for the "good guys with guns" theory. 
 
We see you: Matthew Morrison, Kansas City PD, racist Star Wars fandom, Rikers Island deaths, Elon Musk, Amy Schumer haters

Ep 171: Gun Violence…Forever?

Ep 171: Gun Violence…Forever?

May 26, 2022
On Tuesday a gunman murdered 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Last week a shooter murdered 10 people in a grocery store in Buffalo, New York. No meaningful gun control has been passed in the nearly 25 years since Columbine. How much senseless violence has to occur before lawmakers actually do something? The US is the only economically advantaged country where mass shootings are an issue. We're tired, angry, and so deeply sad. Action, now. 
 
No we see yous this week. Just processing the depressing state of things.

Ep 170: SCOTUS Likely Overturning Roe v. Wade

Ep 170: SCOTUS Likely Overturning Roe v. Wade

May 5, 2022

We process the news that the worst case scenario is upon us. The Supreme Court is most likely going to fully overturn 50 years of precedent and overturn Roe v. Wade and we are gutted, devastated and furious. Justice Alito's 98 page majority draft opinion leaked on Monday, and was verified Tuesday by Chief Justice Roberts. We understand this is a draft and things could change, but they probably won't. Proceed accordingly. 

 
We spend the entire podcast on this hellacious news. No we see yous this week.
