What’s Up, Giggle Gang!!  After a short break, we are back with another episode of FSGPodcast.

We recorded this show in our “Quiet Storm” voices, skipped over all the extra, and spent all of our time catching up on the big news from the last couple of weeks…

Irene sprinkled her “Cool” on LA and has a PSA for basic human interactions. Kevin Hart’s drama has us slightly annoyed and a bit jaded; Our hearts go out to the victims of the horrific Vegas shootings and the utter complacency of our country to address gun control; New Jersey Gov. Christie made an appropriate announcement (for once); the Kardashian are still Kardashianing (and Irene is still annoyed AF); Cardi B is making her place in history by reigning atop the music charts with her break out hit- Bodak Yellow; We honor Thurgood Marshall’s historical appointment to the Supreme Court; And the young Houston Texans QB, Deshaun Watson, is setting the example for philanthropy and kindness; and we’re embracing the onset of fall with one of our favorite TV shows: This is Us.

Y’all stay safe, prayed up, and cherish every moment of love and light and joy.

We’ll be back next week with more FSG!

Fascinating

2017-09-23

Good People, we are back with another FSG experience. We missed you all last week, but Shells was coping with the aftermath of Irma.
So, this week, we get caught up on a lot…. Sloane Stevens’ US Open win, the launch of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line, Jemele Hill exercised her right to Free Speech, Beyoncé gives back to H-Town in a big way, and the we celebrate the success of Black Actors & Creators at the Emmys, including so many of our faves! Finally, we wrap things up with our reaction to the Insecure finale.
As usual, we close out today’s show with some “attitude” in Irene’s Beats and Shells leaves us with a beautiful quote about making your mark on the world.
That’s all for now! Y’all stay cool and we’ll be back soon with more FSG!

Summer Livin’

2017-08-04

What’s up, Giggle Gang!!
We’ve been away for a little while, but we’re back like we nevah left!
Shells was in Utah for the new gig…and Irene been out here handling gators in N.O.
Before we get into it, let’s consider this week’s #WYR question: would you rather give your bestie $500K, or keep $50K for yourself?? #SorryMichi let us know #FSGWYR
Then, we catch up on some things:
Irene’s come up on Jidenna; Beyonce expanding her portfolio  to include NBA ownership…”Hou.Ston Rockets!” *Bey voice* ; the dichotomy between Amazon’s “Black America” and HBO’s “Confederate” ; the foolishness that is the storyline of Power; the continued entertainment of Insecure; and we talk about the utterly despicable statements by Lil Duval on the Breakfast Club.
Then we wrap up the show with “Bodak Yellow” in Irene’s Beats and a message from a hummingbird as Shell’s Eye Spy Inspiration.
We’ll be back next week, but make sure you stop by www.FriendsofFam.com to donate to the scholarship fund and we’ll see y’all in ATL next week!

Oh Lavar…

2017-07-01

It’s a new week and a new episode of FSGPodcast!

We’re talking about a German woman who’s “converting” to black. The return of Power and Queen Sugar to weekly programming makes us happy. The NFL continues to blackball 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. Serena Williams gets John McEnroe together via Twitter. Drake hosted the first NBA awards show. We get into some highlights from the BET Awards. And then we discuss America’s favorite dad, the controversial Lavar Ball.

Our Would You Rather question is a decision between the judgment of God versus the observation of aliens, and it could be more difficult than you think! #FSGWYR
Irene has something “unforgettable” in her Beats this week! #WIMB
And Shells’ Eye Spy Inspiration is all about enjoying the magic of friendship and fellowship this July 4th weekend!

Let us know what you think of today’s show: @FSGPodcast on FB, IG, and Twitter or talk back 202-780-5FSG.
