Episode 61: I Doubt Bob Even Had a Taser

It’s super awkward to hear Amy’s full-of-hope voice speak of UVA men’s basketball when they lost in the first round of the tourney only a week or so later. Ouch.

This week, the Hungry Girls review the L’Oreal loot and they are living for it. Then Paula discusses the Oscars and how everyone ignored Ryan Seacrest, except for Taraji P Henson who read him like a book. Amy explains why Jessica Chastain is just perfect.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

During the Fucked Up Shit, we try to answer the question, “How much is a black life worth?” It comes because Tulsa County pays $6 million to the family of Eric Harris who was shot and killed by a FAKE police officer because white people are terrible.

Paula explains why weight loss is not an accomplishment. She talks about Paul Campos’s book “The Obesity Myth” and “Secrets from the Eating Lab” by Traci Mann. Both Hungry Girls are super jazzed about Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James being at Eloquii. r

Amy shouts out Kevin Love for openly discussing his anxiety disorder in the Mental Health Minute.

Recommendations are Deeper Shade of Shade and Jennifer Harriman’s cover of Mumford & Sons’ “I Will Wait.” (She sounds a little like Beyonce in some parts, no?)

Stay hungry, kids. We sure do love you.

Episode 60: Peppa’s a Stone Cold Bitch

Welcome to Episode 60!

Listener Viv from L’Oreal sent us so much fucking loot and we got our lives, honey! We highlighted everything.

The Fatphobic Disaster is the rampant fatphobia in kids shows like Peppa Pig and Arthur.

Body Politics win is Ragen Chastain who teaches us that perceiving beauty is a skill.

Amy talks about guns! She’s going to get to the bottom of why it’s so hard to pass any gun control measures in the US. She’s reading Adam Winkler’s book “Gun Fight” so you don’t have to.

Also, toxic masculinity is hurting our boys. Amy explains why.

This week’s recommendations are to stop using soap and how to follow hashtags on Instagram.
