EP14: Diddy Boppin?

We took a lil’ break … but we’re back. Here’s the most important thing that we learned during our time away: We are much better together than we are apart. Shells continues to enjoy her new Midwest life: eating ribs at festivals and learning the horse racing game and such. Irene took her ridiculousness to Miami. Her mom was elated to see her and some of Irene’s friends have no concept of being on time. Oh, and the theme music for Irene’s softball game is “Flicka Da Wrist” #GoSammies #petty

Ellen’s only boyfriend, Tayt, had a successful heart transplant surgery! YAY Tayt! We continue to pray for your recovery! And in other Ellen joy, there’s a perfect way to keep your ice cream from melting through the bottom of your waffle cone. #YoureWelcomeWednesdays

We know you’ve missed your weekly Would You Rather pondering, so here it is, good people: Would you rather be able to talk with all animals or be able to speak all foreign languages. As always, we want to hear from you. Hit us up @FSGPodcast #FSGWYR

So…. we are playing catch up around the water-cooler this week. Here’s what you should (already) know:

Donald Trump is still crazy as hell. South Carolina lawmakers voted to, and subsequently, removed the confederate flag from the Capitol Grounds. Congress, however, lost their minds while trying to address the use of confederate flag on federal properties. Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick have broken up. Ariana Grande licked donuts for sale to the public for fun. 3 major IT glitches in 1 day. Wow. And the Bill Cosby story just keeps getting worse. Are you surprised?

FSG PLUG OF THE WEEK! This week we have the esteemed honor to plug the “Queen Like Me” book and reading program. Queen Like Me is part of a budding non-profit education initiative that teaches history to kids.

QUEEN LIKE ME: THE TRUE STORY OF GIRLS WHO CHANGED THE WORLD is a vibrant and adventurous learning experience that invites readers to explore the courageous and dazzling stories of 15 authentic women leaders of the past and present whose contributions to the world are captured in the form of rhyme!  A dynamic array of women (including Queen Nefertiti, Coretta Scott King and First Lady Michelle Obama) are featured!

Check their website queenlikeme.com and follow them Instagram @queenlikeme4kidz and FaceBook @QueenLikeMe.

This week in “Let’s Talk About It”, we talk about some of the most notable breaking news over the last couple weeks, including Obama’s Best Week Ever (SCOTUS Same Sex Marriage ruling and Amazing Grace Eulogy). #BlackGirlsRock, especially Bree Newsome & Misty Copeland. Then there is our BET Awards recap and a few words about FSU quarterback’s De’Andre Johnson nightclub brawl … with a woman.

Irene’s dancing spirit led her to the fun, summery music of D.R.A.M.  This week’s Eye Spy Inspiration is courtesy of our boo, Ellen!

Enjoy and see you next week!
