Ep 90: Spring Breakin’

What’s up, Giggle Gang! We took a week off, but we are back!

Irene had a helluva “spring break” in Texas last week and Shells is getting ready for her spring break road trip with the family! Clearly, spring has sprung and the festivities are blossoming!

This week’s would you rather is pitting personal space against personal identity. Let’s know us which you would rather @FSGPodcast #FSGWYR

Then we catch up on a few things- Dave Chapelle’s comeback, Drake’s new album, Rozay comes for Stunna, Howard West at Google, Texas cops, and Irene’s lucky AirMax win.

Then, we spend a little time talking about Get Out, the sunken place and the interesting conversations that have resulted from the film.

Finally, we wrap the show up with a rap classic in Irene’s Beats and an eye spy about controlling what you can.

That’s all for now! Be sure to get your tickets to FSG Live (check out our website) and continue to Listen-Laugh-Share!

EP89: CONTEXT is Key

What’s up Giggle Gang. We’re back at it and this week, we are giving ya’ll an action packed-time-conscious show. 🙂

So, Shells has been scared as hell this week because thunder and lightning are frightening AF; meanwhile, Irene has been cool as a fan, kicking it with the homies and gearing up for Spring Shenanigans.

Shout out to our girl, Danielle, for the suggestion on this week’s #FSGWYR. Chapped lips or Ashy Hands? What’s the lesser of these two evils. Talk Back #FSGWYR @FSGPodcast

Then we spend the show around the water cooler… We’re talking about the foolish remarks from Ben Carson; Ice Cube ran a t-shirt campaign to raise money for Autism Speaks; The turn up of 2017’s Women’s History Month, 2 African-American Female Pilots controlled a Delta cockpit and made history; Wiki Leaks and the CIA; and finally the Remy Ma/Nicki Minaj battle rap has turned into shadow boxing .

Then we close this thing out as we normally, do… Irene is an advocate of good music, new music, and dope creatives…and that’s evident by What’s in her Beats this week. And while we’re acknowledging dope creatives, one of our sorority sisters and a true light to the world made a Facebook post that is Shells’ Eye Spy Inspiration!

That’s all for now and we’ll be back in TWO weeks! That should give you enough time to catch up on old episodes, share the show with some folks, and make arrangements for FSGLive on May 6.

Listen – Laugh – Share,

Irene & Shells

EP88: Nicki, What’s Good?

New week … new episode for you, Giggle Gang!

It’s been life as usual for us… now on to the show. 🙂

We’re talking about Obama looking like a cool breeze; the Oscar debacle and the Moonlight win; Trump’s first address to a Joint Session; Betsy DeVos’ alternative facts about HBCUs; our experience with “Imposter Syndrome”; and of course, the lyrical slaying of Nicki Minaj by Remy Ma.

And since ShETHER has caused such a stir, Irene’s Beats pay homage to the 2001 battle rap classic, Ether from Nas. Shells’ Eye Spy Inspiration is from Pope Francis as Lent 2017 begins

…and before we go, the countdown continues for FSGLive! May 6, 2017 in DC…get your tickets now!

That’s all for this week!

Listen – Laugh – Share,

Irene & Shells

    🚨New Episode Alert: "Level Up w/ @monascottyoung" 🚨 #GiggleGang!! THE Mona Scott Young is on the show this week!!! Yes, Mona. Scott. Young. The juggernaut behind VH1’s smash series, @loveandhiphop!
    Before I got into all of Mona’s business, we chilled around the "water cooler" to discuss the greatness that is @Serenawilliams, @Beyonce and @Balmain giving back to #HBCU’s, the traitor that is #Trump, and #StevieJ and #Faith’s real love and hiphop story.
    Then Mona takes us down memory lane by sharing her story of how she got into the entertainment industry, the glory years of Violator and Def Jam records, how she met and started managing @missymisdemeanorelliott, the creation of #LHH, and her latest venture- the release of her new book, #BlurredLines.

    FSG is grinding!! I interviewed @iamdevale in the middle of #BourbonStreet during #EssenceFestival2018 weekend. The stars were aligned that night and I'm so grateful. Thank you Devale for speaking with me on a crowded and litty street in #NewOrleans. S/o to @khadeeniam and @stephienicks0804 for just chattin' it up in the background. 😂

    Y'all wanna hear the rest of the interview? Check out this week's episode of @fsgpodcast at FSGPodcast.com, iTunes, Stitcher, Google Home, and wherever you listen to podcasts!
