    Episode 67 The Bachelor: This Episode was Triggering, Toxic, and Trash (Season 25, Week 3)

    Episode 67 The Bachelor: This Episode was Triggering, Toxic, and Trash (Season 25, Week 3)

    It’s week 3 of Matt James’ season and we are exhausted. 

    We see a group date that Ashley Iconetti and Chris Harrison host, all to promote Chris’s erotic novel? On this date, the women have to write a romance (er, mainly sex) story for Matt and perform this story in front of everyone. 

    We also see a 1-on-1 date with Serena P, and they go horseback riding and have a picnic. But unfortunately, most of this episode is focused on drama. Last week the focus was Queen Victoria. This week’s drama is focused on Sarah, who interrupted the group date. Like we said, we’re exhausted. 

    Our POC highlight of the week goes to Kristin Hopkins! She’s a fellow attorney and practical queen (she wore a shower cap during last week’s date with the paint throwing!) She did not get enough screen time this season, and we hope to see you on a beach soon, Kristin!

    Episode 66 True Crime: The Murder of Faith Hedgepeth and the Story of the Most Hated Woman in America

    Episode 66 True Crime: The Murder of Faith Hedgepeth and the Story of the Most Hated Woman in America

    This week we cover stories based on Matt James’ premiere episode!

    Bachelor Matt James is originally from North Carolina, so Megan covers the story of the unsolved murder of Faith Hedgepeth. Faith was an Indigenous college student at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. We also talk about the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) crisis that both the United States and Canada are currently facing. This case is unsolved, there is a $40,000 reward available for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Faith Hedgepeth. If you have information about this case, call the Chapel Hill Police Department (919) 969-2001, or the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation, (800) 334-3000. (Story starts at 14:27).

    During the premiere of The Bachelor, we saw Matt James lead his opening speech to the women with a prayer. Bachelor Nation had mixed feelings about the forced religious participation.

    This week we cover a case that starts with a prayer and ends with murder. Madalyn Murray O'hair is known as the most hated woman in America after she sued Baltimore Public Schools for forcing her son to recite the Lord’s Prayer in school. Madalyn went on to form the Atheists of America, gaining fame and money, money that someone else wanted to take from her and her family. (Story starts at 51:05).

    We also address the acts of domestic terrorism taken out on the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021.

    Links discussed in the episode:

    Episode 20 - Peaches and Cherries Doe (More info on Parabon NanoLabs)

    Chapel Hill, North Carolina Crime Stoppers (If you have info on Faith Hedgepeth's Murder) 

    Urban Indian Health Institute Toolkit - More info on MMIWG

    Episode 65 The Bachelor: She’s Toxy (Season 25, Week 2)

    Episode 65 The Bachelor: She’s Toxy (Season 25, Week 2)

    This week we see the first dates of the season! The first one on one date goes to Bri Springs, who we are both already in love with. The entire world’s population attends the first group date and there’s wedding dresses and paint. Queen Victoria’s reign of terror continues and interrupts everything we WANT to see (insert eye roll). We also see a one on one date with Sarah Trott.

    Our POC highlight of the week goes to Marylynn. She is the 28 year old event coordinator and environment enthusiast from Studio City, California.

    Side note, we do NOT claim to be the best Bachelor Recap Podcast, but we are A Bachelor Recap Podcast. Love you mean it!

    Celia a Slave v. Missouri January 2021 True Crime Patreon Exclusive

    Celia a Slave v. Missouri January 2021 True Crime Patreon Exclusive

    This is a sneak peek of our January 2021 True Crime Patreon Exclusive content.

    You can hear the full episode starting at the $3 level of our Patreon page, link here.

    This episode we have our MOST favorite guests of all time on the pod … our moms! Danielle’s mom prefers stories from the way back machine, so that’s exactly what we did! Our moms also don’t like it when we swear (same for the person who left us a 1 star review on Apple) so this will be our first curse-free episode!

    Celia was a slave that was sold to Robert Newsom when she was 14 years old. The day she returned to the property, was the first day she was sexually assaulted by the slave owner. For years she endured the abuse until one day she fought back. Celia was then put on trial for killing Mr. Newsom. The trial started the conversation of how slaves were only considered property until they were criminals and then could be found guilty of breaking the law. Content Warning: Slavery, Discussion of Lynching, and Sexual Assault.
