    Episode 122: Florida Man Has Got Your Pills

    Episode 122: Florida Man Has Got Your Pills

    Lizz is out for the best reason: celebrating the day Minnesota was first blessed with her radiance and joy. Moji and Marie meanwhile have assembled a critical docket of abortion news, starting with a SCOTUS update. In our now-weekly segment addressing “sanctuary cities for the unborn” we are soliciting jingle entries from our listeners. And we have gotta say, the state that had to run a “don’t rape your daughter” billboard campaign doesn’t scream ABORTION HAVEN, but compared to it’s nearest neighbors it’s a veritable sanctuary state FOR abortion. Yikes! But what really fuels our anger this week is learning that OTHER areas of medical care critical to communities, PARTICULARLY those affecting Black women, are limited in medication and research because of anti-abortion stigma and good ol’ fashioned misogyny.

    Episode 121: The Debit Card Virginity Test

    Your Sleeper Cellmates Lizz, Marie and Moji, have assembled the weeks HOTTEST OF TAKES!!  It took a damned documentary to shine the light on eugenics survivors from the California carceral system, Texas abortion patriots in the Rio Grande Valley stood up and shut down shut-down some ‘sanctuary city’ of Edinburg. And a federal judge JUST OWNED the misogynist and transphobic ARKANSAS lawmakers by rulling GTFOH on laws banning abortion and gender-affirming care.

    Episode 120: Abortion Access Preppers

    Episode 120: Abortion Access Preppers

    As we sweat our way through July, Sleeper cellmates Moji and Marie are calling out some despicable trends. Attorneys General are circle-jerking anything-that-sticks-to-the-abortion-ban as they try to litigate around Roe; clinic attacks are accelerating in violence and frequency and OSA got called out publically for their hatred. But the real (soy) meat and potatoes of this episode is to let you know about the undying dedication of the feminist underground to abortion care for all!! #ABORTIONISSAFEANDLEGAL

    EPISODE 119: FURRIES ARE NOT A GENDER

    We really need to start waking up to better news this summer. This last week saw a cop go unpunished for protesting at an abortion clinic, while Ohio’s newly signed budget throttles providers and gives a cool six MILLION to fake clinics!!! Wake us from this nightmare.  PLUS we have the amazing Ohio clinic escort Kristin Hady, who joined Lizz and co last week in Phoenix to engage with anti-abortion terrorizors from Operation Save America. She and Lizz give you a play by play of their week dealing with these racists and misogynists!!!

    EPISODE 118: FETUSES DON’T NEED TAX BREAKS

    EPISODE 118: FETUSES DON’T NEED TAX BREAKS

    You get Moji and Marie again this week!!! Lizz&Co are out exposing the toxic Evangelical masculinity of Operation Save America, which has descended on Arizona this week to preach their misogynistic hate. Our bright spots are the incredible Black folks running for office all over the US to try and enact REAL change (such as teaching Critical Race Theory in the classroom). We are on team #FreeBritney and demand that she be allowed the freedom to make her own reproductive choices and remind our listeners that so many People of Color face the same type of oppression and coercion. And the For Her Act out of Nebraska isn’t fooling us- its attempts at pushing fetal personhood in exchange for diaper money just don’t add up.

    EPISODE 117: MARIE'S DEFINITELY COMING TO THE COOKOUT THIS JUNETEENTH!

    EPISODE 117: MARIE'S DEFINITELY COMING TO THE COOKOUT THIS JUNETEENTH!

    Description: We hope you are ready to enjoy a relaxing Juneteenth weekend while Moji and Marie DROP SOME KNOWLEDGE. North Carolina’s unconstitutional ban was stopped, but we are still nervous (and enraged) about anti abortion measures in Arkansas and Louisiana. We also watched On The Divide, a documentary that captures a snapshot of the lives of a clinic security guard, a clinic escort, and a fake clinic volunteer around a single clinic in Texas. It touched on a host of intense subjects, ranging from PTSD to domestic violence; this film was thoughtful and reflective in unexpected ways.
