Choppin’ It Up w/ A Whole New Irving

2018-01-27

Good People!!! This week, I sat down with creator, writer, and director- Terry Dawson and lead actor, Chase Anthony of YouTube’s new dramedy web-series, A Whole New Irving. This hilarious show tells the of  Irving Miller and how he deals with the typical woes of being fresh out of college with a degree in hand and no job. While transversing this road from college life to real adulthood, Irving stumbles across a spiritual journey that opens his eyes to elements of life that he didn’t realize existed.

The guys chop it up with me and get into the in’s and outs of producing a web- series in Hollywood, how they got into the industry, what they’re watching on tv, and much more. And You know we had to get into the ridiculousness that is Mo’Nique’s call to action for us to boycott Netflix. Chile please!

And I introduce a new ridiculous segment to the show…just wait for it!

And that’s it! Listen-Laugh-Share

Peace,

Irene

Jumpin’ Thru Jumanji feat. LamarDupree

2018-01-20

Giggle Gang!!! It’s 2018 and Irene is back with an exciting episode of FSG Podcast! This week’s guest cohost is @LamarDupree. And despite mother nature trying to take Irene out with the common cold, we don’t waste anytime getting to the foolishness.

Trump is still a racist. Go figure. Cory Booker is yelling at white women…and we’re ok with it. Lamar explains his upcoming #BlackPanther attire. We don’t think folks are too proud of Mary…but we still love you, Taraji! FX is back with another nail biter with the story of Gianni Versace’s assassination. Love and Hiphop Miami is the best thing on television. And Tiffany Haddish is our Groupon hero! All this and so much more!

Black Women Be Votin’

2017-12-16

What’s up Giggle Gang! We missed you last week, but we’re back.
Irene kicked it in her hometown last weekend and had an awesome first time experience at Art Basel. Shells has been getting ready for Christmas and adjusting to the winter, which is finally here in the Midwest.
This week we are covering …
The sweeping #BlackVote that made huge impacts in the recent political races across the country, specifically in Atlanta and Alabama.  ATL now has a mayor named Keisha, and Alabama has its first democrat US senator in 25 years!
Bitcoin and crytocurrency are all the new wave…and FSG is trying to get on!
We discuss some of the the most popular Google searches of the year, some more surprising than others.
Then we discover that Shells is late to the world of helpful shopping apps.
And we wrap this up with a surprising artist in Irene’s Beat (must mean this track is really dope!) and an eye spy inspiration.. slightly paraphrased.. about making moments memories.
That’s all for this week!
Listen – Laugh – Share!

A Thankful 60 for 60

2017-11-22

What’s up, Giggle Gang! Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is practically here! So we’re giving you another episode to keep you entertained through the holiday!
This week, we’re talking about to comeback of University of Miami and Shells proves (yet again) that she’s on the Struggle Bus when it comes to sports.
We’re still confused about this battle between Taylor Swift and Kanye. The conspiracy theories continue to fly as her new album was released last week.
A Virginia woman rode her bike to the polls last week, was fired from her job, and increased her social currency…thanks to her middle finger!
The Ball boys are staying in the headlines and adding to their resumes. This week, we add International Petty Thief to Diangelo Ball’s list of intangibles. :\
Across the globe, Australia is making progress in marriage equality! An overwhelming YES vote to expanding the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples. LOVE WINS!
Meek Mill is facing up to four years of prison time following a probation violation and we talk about the complexity of the situation and the system…
And to end on a good note, we’re shouting out Colin K. for being named Citizen of the Year and taking GQ’s cover this month. We’re tired of fighting about everything, so FSG is celebrating Colin having a story that is being told and being recognized for the challenges and triumphs this year.
Irene is getting ready to “stick and roll” through the holiday season with “Nice & Slow” in her Beats this week. Shell’s reminds us to embrace & love who and what we are, thanks to a quote from Gabrielle Union in this week’s Eye Spy Inspiration.
Y’all enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday with good food, drinks, and moments with family and friends. We’ll see y’all next week! Peace!

Somebody Come Get Chrisette and Cryrese

2017-11-13

Giggle Gang!! Your girls, Irene and Shells, are here with another week of For Shits & Giggles!! Let’s get started!

    • Here’s to hoping Massage Envy eventually learns a lesson in creating tranquility…
    • Omarosa pulled together 39 friends and photobombed the White House.
    • The Twitter-Verse smiled on us and the Good People rejoiced when the Trump account vanished for Eleven glorious minutes.
    • While the Trump indictments continued to move through process, #BlackGirlMagic, by the name of Debra A Robinson is holding the gavel.
    • Disgusting people (individually and systematically) still exist and the recent case of University of Hartford is one of the worst we’ve heard in a while.
    • Disney figured out a way to make Lion King even more magical… by sprinkling some Beyonce and Donald Glover (& others) over the upcoming live action iteration of the classic.
    • Chrisette Michelle seems to need a serious timeout, for self reflection and healing. As much we love her work, she’s spiraling and needs to step away from the mic… it is not her friend.
    • And then there is Tyrese *le sigh* Somebody close to him needs to give him a Coke and put him back on the bus.

We wrap this one up with a new one from Sam Smith and newcomer, YEBBA in Irene’s Beats; and a reminder to stand up for yourself as our Eye Spy inspiration.

We’ll be back next week…LISTEN-LAUGH-SHARE FSG!

Social Currency

2017-11-06

Giggle Gang! We’re here with a new episode of FSGPodcast.
This week, we’re covering a lot of ground… our 2017 Halloween experiences; Michael Moore’s Twitter read of Trump’s self proclaimed UN-presidentiality; and acknowledgement of the unfolding Mueller investigation of Trump-gate ; Wendy Williams’ live medical emergency and the social media response; the tragedy of the recent NY terror attack and these uncertain and scary times; the exciting 2017 World Series win by the Houston Astros; and another example of God’s grace as evidenced by Cardi B and Gucci Mane’s 2017 come-up.
We wrap this one up with the stripper leg inducing “No Limit” track in Irene Beat’s and an Eye Spy Inspiration that’s about embracing Fall and the change in time as a chance to let go and live.
That’s all for this week… but remember to Listen – Laugh – Share (and get your FSG shirt)!
