    Richard Nixon...WOMP WOMP

    The girlies pick up the story of marijuana where they left off in the 1960’s, exploring how weed evolved from America’s enemy to capitalism’s sweetheart. They discuss the student protestors who lit up for peace, the drug war collab between Nixon and Reagan, how the cops convinced kids to snitch on their parents, and more! Digressions include an exciting geographical announcement, a two year old who can’t read, and Nancy Reagan off the percs.

    The Stoned Age

    The Stoned Age

    In honor of 4/20, the girlies walk you through the hazy history of a most special substance: marijuana. In the first of two episodes, they discuss how weed has been used throughout history to treat medical maladies and help people connect with the spiritual realm. Plus, how the Mexican Revolution brought the exotic “marihuana” to the states, the original dealers who helped the Jazz greats make their grooviest tunes, Reefer Madness, and more. Digressions include a cursory review of the new Taylor Swift album, the confusing world of TikTok Rizz Party, and our dream blunt rotation.

    Monogamy Blues

    Monogamy Blues

    Inspired by the culture’s latest cheating scandals, the girlies unpack monogamy as a social norm and explore what happens when we break the rules. They explore theories of mononormativity, investigate the psychological consequences of being cheated on, and try to answer a pressing question: why are we still attempting monogamy if people keep having affairs? Digressions include the NYC earthquake, kindhearted midwesterners, and one listener’s love of Hoop.

This issue wasn’t complicated for angela davis, martin luther, malcom x, einstein, james baldwin, jvp, mandela, thousands of anti zionist leaders throughout history….almost all of black academia …like do you really not think condemning forced starvation and bombing children is a safe bet….
