Welcome Back! Last week, Shells got to unwind in the city and had a blast. Back in the District, Irene had entertainment overload complements of Straight Outta Compton and Wonderland!
We’re super excited about Ellen’s line with The Gap being available! And we share this week’s #YoureWelcomeWednesday & #ClassicJokeFriday. Ellen’s new season premiers in early September and the first week guests will include Hillary Clinton, Caitlyn Jenner, and 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner-Malala Yousafzai.
This week’s Would You Rather tests your social skills, kinda. Would You Rather be stuck on an island alone or with someone who talks incessantly? Of course, Irene has some clarifying questions and we want to hear your preference. #FSGWYR @FSGPodcast
This week’s Water Cooler News: Bag checks at Regal Cinemas, the passing of civil rights activist Julian Bond, presidential candidate: Deez Nuts, the disgusting hyprocracy of Josh Duggar & Subway Jared. Then Irene gives her Straight Outta Compton review and Shells gets you ready for next week’s National Day of _______ and a random fact!
We introduce a new, occasional segment that we’re calling “White Nonsense” that will celebrate the difference between black and white folk and make light of some of the quirky and crazy conversations that come about. Thanks to Irene’s first white friend and the fancy Louisiana Kitchen.
Irene’s Beats have a Cheerleader this week & Shells found a new motivating writer whose quote speaks to being kind to yourself and persevering.
See you in two weeks … We’re headed out of the country for a little vacation, charge it to our lives. 🙂
