Ep45: Don’t Feed the Role Models

Good People, we’re back!!!
Irene is excited about spring’s arrival and the friendly competition of March Madness; meanwhile, Shells does not swallow on demand and hates subtitles. So there’s that.

Around the water cooler, we discuss Maria Sharapova‘s failed drug test, the mystery of political polling, some new music from Kendrick Lamar and 2Chainz & Lil’ Wayne, Janelle Monae and Taraji’s exciting #BlackGirlMagic project, and DJ Khaled dropped major keys on Ellen last week!

Our Would You Rather is about how you’d like to see the world, the skies or the seas. So would you rather sail or take a hot air balloon around the world? Hit us up #FSGWYR @FSGPodcast on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Then, we get into it… the slippery slope of “role models”. From Sharapova’s troubles, Cam Newton’s post-Super Bowl reaction, the collapse of legacies like OJ Simpson and Bill Cosby, to the backlash of Kim K.’s recent nude pic, we talk about the idea of roles models, and the risk and reward of celebrity role models.

Finally, a young artist hailing from Kentucky gets Irene’s stamp of approval in ” What’s In My Beats?” this week, and Shells’ offers an eye spy inspiration about beating to your own drum.

Remember, we’d love to hear from you… so email us, tweet us, comment on FB, or talk back at (202) 780-5FSG.

Until next week, continue to listen, laugh, and share.

Irene & Shells
