Whoa, y’all. Paula and Amy are super fired up this week. First, Amy explains why the Nazis in Charlottesville at UVA hurt her feelings so deeply. It has to do with Thomas Jefferson and the community of trust. Then Paula chimes in to discuss how fat-phobic the Nazis are. Turns out Nazis are pretty much the most terrible people ever. Who knew? The body positive win of the week is Project Runway and the plus size models! Make up minute features Girl Meets Pearl and Functions of Beauty. Our recs are Patti Cake$ and Insecure.
On this Episode, Paula discusses her trip to Northern California. Amy stayed home and napped. The FUS is that black people aren’t supposed to go to Missouri. Also, Amy is struggling with the segment and her place as a white woman who wants to do the most good. The Fatphobic Disaster is alll of the stoops celebrity diets. Amy & Paula discuss the Netflix movie “To The Bone”. Amy’s rec is the podcast “Ear Hustle”. Paula recs The Big Sick. If you need a laugh, google “Nelly wanted to take a selfie”. And also Todrick’s “Get Out (of the closet)” is comedy gold.
This week, crazy dickless khaki-wearing Nazis took over Charlottesville and Amy and Paula were not okay about it. At the time of this recording, most of the violence had yet to occur so they will dive into this deeper on Episode 43. In the Makeup Minute, Amy touts Lorac’s TANtalizer and Paula loves E.L.F.’s eyeshadow primer. Amy & Paula aren’t mad at Paula, but they are very sad at her…for misleading the American public about how and why she uses Weight Watchers and that she’s come out with a line of pre-packaged food. In the Feminist Forum, we’re super jazzed about Taylor Swift’s testimony in her lawsuit. We highly recommend Kesha’s new album “Rainbow”, the movie “The Glass Castle”, and the television show “The Guest Book”. Paula has some thoughts on “Atomic Blonde”. Stay hungry, bitches!!
