What’s Really Good?!

2017-08-20

What’s up, Giggle Gang! After a week off to manage life and a dope weekend in ATL with Friends of FAM, we’re back at it!
This week, we’re discussing a lot of real life trash: the horrific events in Charlottesville, piss-poor 45, the Usher STD fall out, and a special word for Kim K. And once we get done with that… we recap the overwhelming success of Be Out Day ATL 2017! It was an honor to partner with Friends of FAM and be in the spirit of FAMU for a weekend!
We’ll see ya’ll next week 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!
Listen – Laugh – Share,

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.

Ya’ll have a great 4th of July weekend and be safe! We’ll be back at it next week! Listen – Laugh – Share!

The Crust of the Conversation?

2017-06-24

Giggle Gang! *Chance voice* We back…. we back… we back!

Shells is fresh off an amazing vacation and wedding celebration in Cabo. And Irene has started off her fitness journey with a bang! Let’s go, Irene (#TeamGetSnatched/#GetFineSummer17). Also, a very special shout out to devoted friend of the show, prophyte,  “roommate”, PMac for just being an awesome human being! We love you!!!

This week, Shells has a would you rather that challenges your commitment to reality as you know it. Let us know which you would rather #FSGWYR!

Then we get into this week’s water cooler conversation! We’re discussing the death of Otto Warmbier after being released from a N. Korean prison; the acquittal of the officer that shot and killed Philandro Castillo; Amazon now also owns Whole Foods; Bill Cosby’s trial was deadlocked…the Carters are thriving with the arrival of the twins, and JAY-Z upgraded his name.

Then we wrap up the show … no #WIMB this week, but Shells’ eye spy inspiration is about embracing abundance even if it means “losing” some things or people.

We’ll be back next week! Check us out on our website, iTunes, and Stitcher!

Listen-Laugh-Share,

A Bushy Distraction

2017-06-17

What’s up, Giggle Gang!
We took a week off, but we are back to give the people what they want. Shells has been busy trying to adjust to summer break and Irene has been embracing the start of music festival season, which brings about a very serious concern about port-a-potties.
Special shout out to Irene’s momma who graduated this weekend with a Masters in Nursing!
There’s no #WYR this week, but Shells has a fun word of the day. Let us see your best Moue.

Then to the water cooler… we’re talking about these ridiculous Senate testimonies and the powerhouse that is Kamala Harris; the PDA between Keyshia Knight Pulliam and Bill Cosby during his trial; Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Diddy landing high on Forbes recent net worth list, and one bushy distraction cloaked in “feminism” from Amber Rose.

We wrap up the show with ‘To the Max’ in Irene’s Beats, and Shells’ eye spy is all about the flow between folding and opening up your heart… lessons learned in yoga.

We love y’all! Keep spreading the FSG word… we’re on iTunes, Stitcher, and wherever you listen to podcasts! Also check out our website and holla at us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

See ya next week!

Believe it or Not…

2017-06-03

Giggle Gang!!! We’re back at it!

Irene’s been co-maxin’ & relaxing over the Memorial Day weekend, with the exception of a late night party; meanwhile  and Shells’ had a pretty intense extended weekend attending events, chaperoning a 9-year old birthday sleep over, and hosting a cook-out. But enough about us, let’s get into the show.

This episode, we’re talking about:

  • The current state of awesome television, including Mater of None on Netflix & The Handmaid Tale on Hulu;
  • The cancellation of Underground on WGN;
  • The Mandela Effect;
  • The top searched “How to Spell” words by state;
  • A young girl passion to empower self esteem for women of all hue through her company, “Flexin’ in My Complexion“;
  • Tiger Wood’s recent run in with the polices…but most importantly how his rap sheet reads.

Irene has Issues in her Beat’s this week, and Shell’s Eye Spy inspiration came from watching a player on Survivor who shared her testimony about what can happen when you just get off the couch.

That’s it… shout of to all the Giggle Gang that has already copped your FSG swag… it’s not too late to get yours too. We love ya’ll

Listen – Laugh – Share,

FSG HUNNED

2017-05-26

What’s Up, Giggle Gang! We hope you all got a chance to check out the recording of our live show…and we really hope you loved it! Guess what?! This is our one hundredth episode. ONE HUNDRED FSG experiences. ONE HUNDRED recordings of our randomness and giggles. 100 Thank Yous for supporting us 100 times over. We are so proud and excited about what’s to come for this random idea that keeps on growing!

We’re back to our usual antics this week. Shells is getting ready for summer time in the ‘burbs’ and Irene has finally come down from her medically induced high following oral surgery.

Shout out to our girl, Danielle, for graduating this weekend with her J.D. and for giving us some new Would You Rather material!! This #FSGWYR is about the afterlife… which you you rather?

Then, we have two weeks worth of water cooler news to catch up on. There’s the devastating murder of Richard Collins, the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, The Carters push party theme spawns a heated debate about cultural appropriations, and then we discuss the new fashion trend (or not) of male rompers.

We wrap it all up with a new Wale record in Irene’s Beats and an Eye Spy Inspiration about listening to your body’s needs and resting when you need it!

Here’s to 100 more EPs… for shits and giggles!   XO

We are just trying to give the people what they want… and apparently, the people want FSGLive!

We are so thankful for the Giggle Gang for rocking with us in person and DJ Commish being our DJ and guest host for this milestone event!

We did our usual things… giggled… judged each other for our Would You Rather answers… giggled… discussed a few current events (including some official schooling from Dr. Keneshia Grant) giggled… talked about if relationships and goal chasing can co-exist… giggled… and wrapped it up a double dose of #WIMB and an #ESI that was a testament to the entire FSGLive experience!

We love ya’ll … We Appreciate ya’ll… we hope you all enjoy the show!
