EP37: Internet Clapback

Welcome to a new year with FSG! We hope that your holiday was awesome and you’re back into the swing of “real life”. We enjoyed our time away but we’re HYPE to be back at it!

This week in  “Water Cooler” banter…

  • On television,  the 17th season of The Biggest Loser premiered. We like the show and the new changes to the format, but the highlight is that Shells apparently has a “real life crush”. Wow.  Lip Sync Battle also premiered with Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, and they pulled out ALL the stops! The BeyHive spazzed!!
  • In Fashion, Jaden Smith is the face of the new Louis Vuitton womenswear line. Ok.
  • In politics, President Obama took Executive Action in an effort to reduce gun violence. His announcement was emotional and pointed. Read the full official press release here!
  • In sports (kinda), it’s been announced that Beyonce will be a part of the Super Bowl 50 half-time show! She won’t be performing alone- Cold Play and Bruno will be there- but when Bey’s in the building…no one else matters, right?

In the hypothetical world of “Would You Rather” we consider if we’d rather feel a sharp pain each time someone says our name or have a bell sound each time we are are aroused? LOL! Of course we want to hear your take… We’re listening: #FSGWYR @FSGPodcast on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Have you ever been a witness and/or participant in an argument on social media? We talk about the motivations and the harm done by those who engage in virtual combat, even when the intention may be good. Check out our perspectives and then let us know what you think!

Finally, we wrap up the show with the first What’s In My Beat’s of the year. Irene gets us started with a little “Church” by a few of Chi-town’s finest.  And for Eye Spy Inspiration, Shells reminds us that a year is a long time to work on becoming better versions of ourselves, so be patient and just keep practicing.

That’s it for our first show of 2016! Thanks to all of our listeners who participated in our feedback survey, we hope you can already hear some growth!

Remember to RATE us on iTunes and, of course, Listen. Laugh. Share!

Catch y’all next week!
