    E 24 "Girl Code 101: Unspoken Rules of Friendship"

    Southern duo, Drea G and Tasha The Black Rogue  of G.R.I.T.S. and the City Podcast are back with episode 24, "Girl Code 101: Unspoken Rules of Friendship." In this week's steamy installment, we discuss the piping hot topic of a very married Antoine Fuqua being caught canoodling in Italy with a very single, Nicole Murphy leaving his wife of 23 years, Lela Rochon in the cold. In the new ep, we analyze the sheer tomfoolery of it all, and give our candid feelings about the "friendship code."
    In this week's discussion we break down "friend code" and the unspoken rules of friendship, as well as explore some debatable topics such as can "men and women genuinely be just friends?" From analyzing high profile hook ups like Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys, to exploring the topic of, "Is it ever okay to date a friend's ex"? Are there ever grey areas when it comes to dating someone your friend has? Can you be friends with an ex, and is it okay for your friends to be super chummy with an ex??
     Listen to catch all this and more, and weigh in with your thoughts and opinions on the hot button topic. Are these ideas antiquated? Is all fair in love and war?
