    Politics Is Ruining The Arts - Clifton Duncan

    Politics Is Ruining The Arts - Clifton Duncan

    Clifton Duncan returns to the podcast to discuss the importance of creating culture that we can all share and the role the arts play in our shared experience. He and Bridget discuss the erosion of the spiritual well-being of our society, how art is what a civilization leaves behind once its gone, the effect that politics and political correctness are having on the arts in general, the loss of men and masculinity in the arts, and the reason good art is transcendent appeals to our common humanity. They also cover Clifton's crowd funded Thomas Sowell play, the backlash to making art more politically overt in one direction, how being a professional idiot is really difficult, why normal people don't go into theater, the importance of a live audience, and why neither one of them wants to be just another talking head.

    E284. It's Never Enough - Carmen Lynch

    E284. It's Never Enough - Carmen Lynch

    Comedian Carmen Lynch stops in for a hilarious conversation with Bridget about women in comedy, their writing processes, Millennials acting like they're old, how Gen X always gets skipped, how much comedy had changed, and what disasters they both are. They discuss living among the normies, why comedy is the antidote to being butthurt, how people need to be reminded of joy, being a late bloomer, why you're never really ready for the things you want to do, waiting for the industry gatekeepers, the next steps for their books, why they always want more no matter what level of success they achieve, and how they're all comparing themselves to Rogan. Check out Carmen's new comedy special Queef Week.

    WiW283. Black Victim to Black Victor - Adam Coleman

    WiW283. Black Victim to Black Victor - Adam Coleman

    Adam Coleman sits down with Bridget to discuss his book Black Victim to Black Victor: Identifying the ideologies, behavioral patterns and cultural norms that encourage a victimhood complex. They talk about what motivated him to write and self-publish the book, how its success took him by surprise, how growing up without a father impacted him, the effect of not having a dad on young men, what fathers need to teach their sons, how his own son helped him realize what he had missed out on, how certain corners of the internet view competent men, the holes in right wing male ideology, and how there’s no path to redemption in the extreme forms of our political discourse. They cover the importance of resisting nihilism, the "body count" topic, why there should be more discussion around the male responsibility in the choice to have a child, his experience raising his son, why conservatives don't reach out the the black community, the upcoming election, how being super online distorts your perception of reality, why it’s good to be wrong every so often, identifying the hills you'll die on, if a return to normalcy is possible, and why employing victimhood narratives are dangerous because then people just wait for a savior.

    E282. TikTok Is Ruining Comedy - Blair Socci

    Comedian Blair Socci sits down with Bridget and talks about the ins and outs of comedy, how people’s understanding of standup comedy is being shaped by social media, why crowdwork is causing problems, making sure not to miss the simple jokes, when you have to aggressively put yourself out there in a way that feels disgusting, what balancing comedy and being a mom looks like for Bridget, everyone being a public person these days, respecting the hustle, feeling good about what you put out into the world, and the delicate dance of talking about family members on stage.

    E281. Race To the Top of Mt. Clickmore - Jimmy Failla

    Comedian, former cab driver, and current Host of FOX News Saturday Night and radio program FOX Across America, Jimmy Failla joins Bridget for a hilarious conversation about their respective working class backgrounds, why driving a cab is the original social media, how Trump is the only way 15 year old kids can be counter-culture today, why a lot of people on the Left are intellectually lazy, and why "likes" are the death of everything. They discuss being new enough to media that they genuinely care, how everybody is a prisoner of the moment, the importance of comedy, the lack of self-awareness in society, the shamelessness of today's culture, how most late night shows have abandoned their calling to entertain the masses, how Trump will never quietly go away in the night, why family privilege is so valuable, and why fun conquers all. Check out Jimmy's new book, Cancel Culture Dictionary .

    E280. How To Save America - Tulsi Gabbard

    E280. How To Save America - Tulsi Gabbard

    4-Term Congresswoman, U.S. Army veteran, and 2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard sits down with Bridget to talk about her new book, For Love of Country: Leave The Democrat Party Behind. She and Bridget discuss making people on both sides angry, why people feel threatened when someone tells the truth, being grounded in God, when Democrats stopped talking about God, being open to shifting your opinion as you learn more, witnessing an extreme radicalization of the Democratic party, and who actually holds the power in D.C. They also cover the flaws in our voting system, the possibility for a 3rd party candidate in this election, why she wants to do away with the Department of Education, focusing on the fundamentals of who we are as a country, how nihilism is a one way train that leads to nowhere, being grateful for the opportunities to serve, why we should be willing to engage with people with different backgrounds and different mindsets, and why she still feels hopeful because the real power in this country lies in the hands of the people.

This feels real

I just love this podcast. Bridget and Maggie talk about EVERYTHING with such soul, common sense and vulnerability. They’re curious humans, and I love that! I also really respect how Bridget shares her past as I’m pretty close to her age and have experienced so many of the same things and expediting a lot of the same feelings and realisations.

I love how down-to-earth Bridget and Maggie are. I feel like I’m in the room with them, equally curious, deep diving into issues and scenarios (politics, anthropology, psychology, observations, comedy, art, spirituality, fitness, health etc).

I find myself coming back here a lot and laughing a lot and nodding along to all the truth. Thanks, ladies. Your straight up common sense is so appreciated.

My favourite twitter follow made a podcast

Incredibly fun and always topical. I wish all podcasts were like this.

The bee

Heard her on The Bee podcast and she seems bright, happy and insightful so I’m jumping on board her podcast. The world needs more smart middle women speaking real to counteract all these loud green haired professors trying to tear it all down, and the suits trying to sell it off.
