    Episode 36: "Who Made You The Coochie Boss?" (feat. Sofia & Seykia)

    Episode 36: "Who Made You The Coochie Boss?" (feat. Sofia & Seykia)

    A LOT has changed in the past week! After nearly 50 years, the U.S. Supreme Court has overturned the Roe v. Wade ruling, jeopardizing reproductive rights in over half of the states in the U.S. On this week's episode, friends of the show, Sofia and Seykia, joined us to weigh in on the controversial discussions, regarding abortion laws, body autonomy, and SCOTUS's latest actions against human rights.

    Before we shared our opinions on such a serious matter, we kicked off the episode on a light-hearted note with Yve's vacation plans being delayed (4:30) and Rob's recent haircut that has him hiding behind a hat for the next couple weeks (9:00). We then dived into discussions of Roe v. Wade and the Supreme Court (18:00), who these laws are actually targeting (36:45), and why the system need to be restructured immediately (1:06:25). It's a heavy episode filled with great insight, and certainly not an episode you want to miss... well... unless you agree with SCOTUS. Enjoy!
