Ep81: 2016, Out

It’s our Christmas gift to you, Good People…our last episode of 2016! We are grateful for this year in FSG and for you, The Giggle Gang!

We have a holiday inspired Would You Rather, we talk about the things that can be left in 2016, Irene has a Holiday CLASSIC in her Beats, and Shells’ final Eye Spy Inspiration is about reflection, resolutions, and pivoting from this year to the next!

We love ya’ll! Hope that you are enjoying your holiday and we wish you a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year. See ya’ll in 2017.

FSGPodcast – 2016…. We, out!

EP80: Ye’s the New Chris Brown

What up Good People!! Shells is (finally) bracing herself for some frigid Midwest weather this week and Irene (finally) got her hands on her dream Jordans… and managed to stumble upon a come-up in the process…of course!

Now, let’s get into the show!

We send our condolences to the family of Alan Thicke, who passed away of a heart attack earlier this week.

One of Irene’s fave guilty pleasures, Love and Hip Hop NY, continues to tickle her ratchet entertainment fancy;

Golden Globe nominations were announced! It’s a good mix of entertainment and talent and we are so proud of: Moonlight (with 6 nominations), This is Us, Atlanta, Black’ish, Veep and Insecure, for earning spots!

Gabrielle Union posted a tweet against sexist remarks this week and we discuss whether it was a valid point;

And The Voice crowned its newest winner!

Then, with heavy hearts, we spend some time discussing and reviewing the downward spiral Kanye West has been on for all of 2016. Ye and Trump are “buddies” and it’s clear that he’s committed to becoming a public figure of instability!

Finally, and because we miss the old Kanye, Irene is dedicating her #WIMB to him. And Eye Spy inspiration is all about manifesting what you want in your life!

That’s all for now!

See ya next week!

EP79: No Green Bubbles

Good People!! Welcome Back to another dope edition of FSGPodcast!

Since last week, it actually started feeling like December in Chicagoland… brrrr! And there is cause for celebration cause Shells found a new hair stylist!! Meanwhile, Irene has been chilling for the most part… but is relishing in excitement and anticipation of a milestone in her Sneaker Game.

We love the show This Is Us and one of its’ most compelling story lines has inspired this week’s would you rather question. Let us know your preference @FSGPodcast #FSGWYR

Before we get into the water cooler, one of loyal listeners and Shells’ long time friend, Lamar, gave us a call to share a male perspective about our Insecure episode! You too could have a cameo on the podcast… but you have to talk back (202) 780-5FSG!

Then to the water cooler …

  • There’s J. Cole’s new record “False Prophets” that is causing a little controversy;
  • A mistrial was declared for Michael Slager, the South Carolina police officer who shot and killed unarmed and fleeing Walter Scott in 2015;
  • The Obama administration has stopped the progress of the Dakota Access Pipeline. It’s a major, but fragile, victory for the Native Americans of Standing Rock Reservation fighting for their sacred lands;
  • Apparently, Apple and Samsung are the new age East Coast/ West Coast battle.
  • Then, there’s the Grammy nominations!!!! The BeyHive is bubbling with pride, with Bey having 9 noms for Lemonade; and we’re so proud of Chance the Rapper, the independent artist who didn’t sell his album, but earned 7 nominations, including best new artist.

Then we wrap this show up, with a little bit of a throwback in grown up music in Irene’s Beats… and Shells Eye Spy is about running with your $10 idea and doing so in a way that is authentic … even if it’s unconventional.

That’s all for now… we love y’all! Keep coming back!!

Ep78: Totally I N S E C U R E

Hey Good People! We both enjoyed Thanksgiving with the loved ones and can’t believe that the countdown to Christmas is here. 2016 is flying by..and here we are, another week kicking with ya’ll! 🙂

This week, Would You Rather returns… in all it’s glorious ridiculousness!! So, if you had to have lots of muscles, would you rather them be upper body or lower body? #FSGWYR We have a feeling this will go down gender lines…lol.

Then we stroll on over to the water cooler, where we find:

Then, we talk about the full season of Insecure. There are so many layers to this down-to-earth, relatable, honest exploration of the flawed reality of Issa in her love life, friendships, and career.  We talk about the themes of Season 1, the conversations that have been sparked as a result of Issa’s brilliant story telling, and the banger of a season finale!

Then we wrap it up as usual… with some dope music from Insecure in Irene’s Beats…and an Eye Spy Inspiration that also relates to what Insecure taught us this season!

We had fun with this episode and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!!

That’s all for now.. but we’ll be back…as usual.. next week!

Listen – Laugh – Share!
