EP57: The Big Magical Box

We’re back at it! 

Shells is suffering from the “Natural Hair Struggle” and loving her new workout, The Bar Method. She also shares some extra love for one of her dearest friends, Lamar, for just being awesome! 🙂 Meanwhile, Irene had an amazing weekend – filled with the good vibes that only Beyoncè can provide.
We start the show on a solemn note, given the recent and repeated tragedies in Orlando this week. We send our condolences to the family and friends of all those who lost their lives in these senseless acts of violence. FSGPodcast believes in love, respect, and happiness; and we pray that our country will take a turn for the better. We all deserve so much more than to continue to suffer from the loss of life and freedom as we simply strive to live in our unique and diverse truths  – safely.
We take a break from the Water Cooler to shift the energy and consider this week’s would you rather question! Here it is: Would You Rather have professional paparazzi follow you non-stop or have to reveal one serious, intimate secret about yourself weekly in a column? Share your preference on IG, FB, or Twitter @FSGPodcast #FSGWYR
Now back to our usual antics:
  • A couple of our favorite shows are returning soon, Orange in the New Black (Netflix – June 17th) and Big Brother (CBS – June 22nd) We’ll be talking about them all summer long!
  • The United States of Women event looked like it was just as amazing as we thought it would be! Shout out to everyone behind making this important event happen, including our very own Brandi Sally!
  • The Tony Awards were covered in diversity this year and we LOVE it! Shout out to Hamilton with 11 wins, and the top 4 honors of the night going to people of color — the first time in Tony History!
  • We acknowledge the passing of Kimbo Slice who remained diligent and built his image, brand, and relevance despite many hardships and set backs.
  • And then Irene shares her Beyonce Formation experience. As a true fan of music, musicians, and performers….and a devoted member of the BeyHive…this recount is one worth hearing!
Finally, we wrap up the show with new music from Kelly Rowland’s protege’s “Chasing Destiny” and a Mr. Rogers quote helps us find the silver lining in the darkest of times.
We love ya’ll for hanging with us! Continue to Listen – Laugh – Share and we’ll see ya next week!
-Irene & Shells
