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!
Listen – Laugh – Share!

Summer Livin’

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!
