Episode 10 – A Bad Ass Bitch That Gets Shit Done

Paula and Amy saw the RuPaul Season 8 Drag Queens LIVE and they were on fire! They slayed all day. SLAY. We loved all the ladies — Naomi Smalls and her spider-like legs, Kim Chi and her breathtaking makeup.

Do we use the word magical too much? Maybe. And also spirit animal.

Bob the Drag Queen is hysterical! Chi Chi Devayne is the person who is inside of Amy — a black southern gay man who likes to dress up as a woman.

Here’s a video of Paula losing her mind at drag queen brunch in DC. HOW CUTE IS PAULA!?!

Wanna hear RuPaul’s praise of Hillary Clinton? Yeah,we thought you would. You can find it here.

What Amy looks like when Paula talks about what it’s like to live in a world with no humidity.



Milwaukee is on fire because of the shooting of Syville Smith. This particular case is a complicated one.

Whether or not the shootings are justifiable or not, the sense of distrust among these black communities is real, and they do not feel safe with the police.

We repeat these names because it’s important: Syville Smith, Philando Castille, Alton Sterling and Charles Kinsey.

White privilege = thinking that the police are here to help, not here to kill me, even if I get pulled over for something I’ve done wrong.


Alexa Moreno is an amazing gymnast and should never be on a diet ever because her body needs the FOOD that she eats to FUEL her amazing feats!! Let us all celebrate the wonder of Alexa Moreno!!  Twitter haters, you are the fatphobic disasters of the week and we rebuke you!!

Here are some other awesome athletes whose bodies do not look like an American supermodel’s body! Sarah Robles! Michelle Carter! Leisel Jones! Melanie Schlanger and the awesome male swimmer with a “dad bod,” Robel Kiros Habte.

Athletes come in all shapes and sizes and they are healthy because they DO THINGS that win medals with their bodies! Bodies that are different sizes are able to do different things.

Everyone gets that people come in different heights, but not different sizes. Why is this so hard to understand?

NBC Chief Marketing Officer John Miller designed the Olympics to be a cross between a Lifetime mini-series and a reality show. GROSS.

Here are our six most egregious examples of sexist Olympic coverage:

  1. When Simone Biles was compared to men who were not gymnasts.  “She’s the Michael Jordan of gymnastics.”
  2. Commentator Dan Hicks said, “And there’s the man responsible” when cameras turned to the coach and husband of Katinka Hosszú following her gold-medal win.
  3. An unidentified commentator said Team USA members looked like they “might as well be standing in the middle of a mall” after they were caught on camera laughing and talking.
  4. Trap shooter Corey Cogdell won bronze the Olympics and the Chicago Tribune reported that: “Wife of a Bears’ lineman wins a bronze medal today in Rio Olympics.”
  5. Female athletes wearing makeup was discussed by a lot of people…NBC reported this: “We all know that old adage, sex sells. Well, now female Olympians are sexing it up more than ever by wearing makeup during their competitions. Some say this is about empowerment. Well, really? Do women who are elite athletes need to wear makeup to feel stronger or is it simply a fashion statement like when LeBron James wears funny hats?”
  6. San Jose’s Mercury News ran a headline reading “Olympics: Michael Phelps shares historic night with African-American.” Congratulations, Mercury News, you’re racist and sexist in the same news headline.

And then this happened….


Men and women athletes are talked about very differently on television. This fills us with rage.

Amy recommends you fly Delta! Paula recommends Don’t Think Twice and Stranger Things!

Thanks for listening, y’all!!

Episode 9 – Perfect Divine Little Chunk of God

Welcome to Episode 9! This is a weird one, y’all. (Weird in a great way, that is.) We spend a lot of time talking about our hair.  Look!

We saw the amazing improv troupe from Upright Citizen’s Brigade. If they tour near your town, you gotta go.  YOU GOTTA.

Amy recaps an insane episode of Too Close for Comfort that she stumbled upon after looking for a picture of Jim J. Bullock. “So much of this is so offensive,” says Paula. We can’t even. Read this article and watch the clips.


Happy to report that no shootings made the national news. That doesn’t mean that police didn’t unfairly target African Americans or that there was no police brutality unfairly distributed to people of color, but none made the national news.

Let us not forget those who were shot since the inception of this podcast: Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and Charles Kinsey.


From the UK comes this week’s Fatphobic Disaster. Is the UK behind the USA in fatphobia? Who knows. But for sure this week, the dipshits from Pure Gym in Manchester, England (across the Atlantic Sea) were horrible.

They dressed up like giant stupid blueberries to promote the gym and everyone hated it. Why should this make me want to go to the gym? Gyms are for moving your body to feel good and relieve stress! If you promote gyms to promote the decrease of body size, you’re reinforcing the fucked up stereotype that size is all that matters and that small bodies are better than big bodies. And THAT is a disaster.

Paula does NOT feel bad about ranting last week about the Republican National Convention, mostly because the DNC put a lot of hope in her heart.

Paula and I are trying to figure out how to love someone who will likely vote for Trump.  It’s real hard.

We wonder, is the most loving thing to do to separate ourselves from the Trump hate and vitriol so we can stay sane, or is the strong choice to say “even if you vote for Trump, I still see you as a perfect divine little chunk of God.”

Michelle Obama is a ninja. She took all the gross energy of Trump and transforms it into glitter and rainbows.  She was looking right into our souls and it was healing.

One of the best things to come out of the DNC was the collection of photos of Bill Clinton losing his mind during the balloon drop.

Have Donald Trump and his scary band of Republicans abandoned all their most sacred American values? Or are their scared American values not as valuable because they belong to someone brown and Muslim?

However, HANDS DOWN, the best thing that came out of the DNC was this article written by R. Eric Thomas. “Let Us Now Praise the Immaculate Shade of Joyce Beatty.”  I see you, Otto. People in white were having a moment at the DNC.

Lastly, we ponder, is Megan Trainer dumb? She says she’s probably not going to vote, and that’s definitely dumb.

Stay hungry, bitches!!

Episode 8: It’s not about you!


Go see Ghostbusters, y’all! Four women headline a movie and they are not sex objects or housewives or secretaries.

Leslie Jones quit Twitter! In general, our culture doesn’t like it when a woman isn’t seen as fuckable. The men don’t even get boners!!  Twitter banned a douche and made us all happy.

Here’s Melissa McCarthy’s adorable yellow dress from The Ghostbusters premier.

Amy introduces an unfortunate new segment entitled:

Black People Shot by Police This Week

Behavior therapist Charles Kinsey, an African-American man, was shot by police on July 18 as he was trying to counsel his autistic patient who was in the street with a toy truck. Police say this was an accident.

Repeating the names so we don’t forget: Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and Charles Kinsey.

The Republican National Convention was awful. We didn’t watch.

Our sincere apologies to Amy’s mom….we talk about the C-word. And it’s because of Scott Baio and his gross tweet.

Paula tackles Hillary Hate. Maybe it’s not all about latent or blatant misogyny. Or maybe it is…. Paula references this article written by Karoli.

Incidentally, Karoli used the pseudonym Anna Whitlock, and in preparing this, we learned that Anna Whitlock was “a Swedish reform pedagogue whose Wikipedia article’s picture makes her the doppelganger for Kathy Bates.

Paula makes this passionate point:  “If you have any soul in your cold black heart, you need to just fucking vote for Hillary….If you care about people of color, if you care about women, if you care about gays, if you care about anybody who’s not a white upper-class person, you will just get off your ass on November 6 and you will go and vote for Hillary because it’s NOT FUCKING ABOUT YOU. It’s about the country and it’s about everybody.”

We teach that women lie…why else would 50 women come out against Bill Cosby and we still don’t believe that he’s a rapist. Allegedly.

2016 can suck a dick!!! Here are a bunch of tweets that perfectly sum up how 2016 has been so far. 

bowie tweetWhat You Do Matters!!

There is immense power in how we act. What you do to make yourself a better contributor to our shared humanity…and how you show yourself compassion–that matters.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes says, “Stand up and show your soul.


Our celebrity bullshit this week made us like Kim & Kanye. Tay Tay Kimye Dramz is all about it.

Here’s a link to Kim’s infamous snapchat where you can hear Taylor giving permission to Kanye.

We tease ASMR — the tingly head relaxation some people (like Amy!) get sometimes. We’ll talk about this more on Episode 10.

Here’s the dumb ol’ MILF by Fergie video.

Correction: Devon Aoki is not who we were thinking of…We were thinking of Jenny Shimizu

Please leave us iTunes reviews!!

The original post implied Bill Clinton had allegedly raped over 50 women. We meant Bill Cosby. The post has been updated.
