Seriously? Y'all are the s*&t

Thank you Imani and Jess for bringing the REALNESS on your podcast!!! I'm an abortion provider and I am SUCH a huge fan. Your podcast has been so incredibly helpful for me in terms of understanding all the legal mumbo-jumbo that I never thought I would need to learn when I originally pursued a career in medicine!

Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your thoughts, ideas and explanations with us all. Thank you for all the work you do and for being so goddamn funny while you do it!

much <3

Thanks for being great

These two are hilarious and so informative. I’ve really appreciated everything I’ve learned from them about how the court system works so I can try to explain to idiots in my life that the president can’t make a governor rescind an executive order, and that you also can’t just take it to the Supreme Court. Thank you for giving me the tools to talk these people off the legal ledge.

Interesting topics but cyber bullying not my thing

I found the podcast interesting and the topics thought promoting. The hosts are substantive, though it’s not where I’d go for a balanced debate. I won’t subscribe and listen rarely after checking out Gandy’s twitter page which is essentially her cyber bullying others and I’m not into that scene.
