EP65: “The Black Annie”?
Hey Hey, Good People! Here we are again!
Since last week, Irene has been chilling and Shells is trying to get her mind right for Cole’s first day of kindergarten.
Around the water cooler, we discuss:
- The conclusion of the 2016 Olympics, including the impressive USA medal count; and the Nigerian rower who defied the odds!
- Eating maggots from a dead sheep on Running Wild with Bear Grylls ;
- The truth has set Lyin’ Ass Lochte free…of integrity, sponsorship, and probably his career;
- Frank Ocean dropped his highly anticipated album *insert Irene’s sarcasm and side eye*;
- Lonnie Ali, the widow of Muhammad Ali, has launched Ali75, a campaign to bring out the Ali in all of us!
Then we get into a would you rather that (not surprisingly) take us off our conversational course…Would you rather have a fully automated house (like in “The Black Annie”) or a self-driving (and totally safe) car? #FSGWYR
And Shells shares the #LiveAlotFSG tip this week! Don’t underestimate the power of a mini-getaway…a night at a hotel in a city near you!
Then we share our initial thoughts and reactions to the Nate Parker story. This is an extremely complex story and information regarding the 15+ year old legal case continues to be revealed, as well as the implications to Parker’s career.
Finally, we get into Irene’s Beats… which apparently is her theme song and is probably a bit inappropriate following our Let’s Talk About it… buuuutttt, this is FSG.
…And that’s all for this week. Because, we’ve done enough. lol.
Listen – Laugh – Share…

EP64: 2016 Olympics – It’s Lit!
What up, folks!
Here we are again… Irene has a new cocktail to enjoy as she take in these last weeks of summer…Shells had a new discovery in parenting and is taking in easy between the end of road trip season and the new school year.
This week’s would you rather is weighs the value of fame versus legacy. Which would you rather…let us know #FSGWYR
Then we get into our water cooler conversations! It’s chock full of Olympic high-(and low)-lights, from the commentators, to the #blackgirlmagic of the Simones, Ryan Lochte’s absurd account of being robbed at gun point, and the diving and drop kicking adaptations in track. We also discuss the coincidental destination for Southwest’s recent sale, Trump circus of a campaign, and Shells’ new girl crush! Then we discuss Cam Newton’s GQ interview, and the social media judgement of Gabby Douglas.
As we continue with our #LiveAlotFSG campaign, Irene reminds us that just trying something new on a familiar menu can become an experience…if you let it! Keep Living ALOT and remember to tell us about it! 🙂
Finally, one of the GOATs of rap is in Irene’s Beats this week. It’s a new record from an old school artist who clearly just gets better with time. And Shells Eye Spy Inspiration reminds us that our words mean things…so we should be careful with how we use them!
That’s all for this week!
Listen – Laugh – Share!

Ep63: We Married or Nah?
What up, Good People!
Shells just got back from her road trip with the family to NC, but her voice didn’t quite make it. Meanwhile, Irene had a great weekend with her mom, and is still trying to accept that the end of summer is near.
Around the water cooler this week, we discuss all the dope blessings Leslie Jones is enjoying, despite her haters; we acknowledge the passing of Dr. Sebi, a world-renowned herbalist and natural healer; Misty Copeland got married to her longtime beau; the Olympics have been an awesome display of athleticism and culture; and then there was 50 Cent’s eggplant. Yikes!
In our hypothetical world… Would you rather live your entire life in a virtual reality where all your wishes are granted or in the real world?
And how have ya’ll been living alot this week? Our weekly suggestion is that you get a massage! Make some time to get a good rub down – your body will thank you!
Then we get into our Let’s Talk About It: We Married or Nah? On the heels of some high profile and messy celebrity break ups, we discuss modern day marriage, the related pressures and social stigmas.
Finally, we wrap up the show with a timeless classic from Erykah Badu in Irene’s Beats and an Eye Spy Inspiration about being open to connecting with people outside of your immediate circle.
That’s it for now. We’ll be back next week!
Listen – Laugh – Share,
