    OMG, y'all, it's almost safe to go out in the world! We're getting our vaccinations -- are you getting yours? This is a rambling show that touches on tragedy and comedy as well as a little bit of science and the economy. And Bay might be drunk. We'll let you decide! Be our friends! Write to us at... Well, heck, you can write to Bay at bay.loftis@gmail.com . Thank you for listening!

    Ep 346: Have you voted yet?

    Ep 346: Have you voted yet?

    If you haven't voted yet, here's a calm, level-headed, equitable discussion of the two candidates and how their platforms differ so you can make an informed decision... NOT! Ha ha ha, can't help it, that's hilarious, I just had to write that. Snort! Anyway, the Disaster Prius strikes again, Amy went camping, foxes are cute, and Bay drank too much. Don't email her at work! Actually, you can totally email her at work, just don't call her Jennifer. Also, no, don't email her at work. We also discuss politics, tree removal, petroglyphs, fashion choices (skorts 4ever), hiring help, classic holiday films, and sparkly things. Typical Grits to Glitz! Find us on Facebook! Amy Trotter Turner and Bay Secondtry!

    WE'RE BACK AGAIN! It's still a crazy year. Some of us are super cautious, while others of us are crazy people who gad about the globe, trying to find as many germs as possible while also going diving and doing really interesting stuff. Which one of us is a wild woman?! Listen to the podcast to find out!!! Write to us at bay@gritstoglitz.com or amy@gritstoglitz.com!!! 
    Amy's cool diving video in Cozumel! Vote for Biden! Walt Disney World Polynesian Resort without a lot of talking Bay was pretty drunk and doesn't remember everything we talked about until the Skype stopped working, so here's a link to a video when Bay's corgi was a puppy and barking at her very excellent former cat Hector the Magnifico. If you listen closely, you can hear Bay and Amy and others laughing in the Christmas-music infused background.

Wish They Were My Sisters

These two bring so much light & love to my heart! I wish I had siblings like these two. I enjoy their stories and look forward to the every week!

These ladies are lovely!

Being a sister myself, I genuinely enjoy listening to these two ladies talk. It reminds me of phone conversations with my own sister. Love it!

Infectious, real and lovely

GET TO KNOW Amy and Bay. They have this great hook — they’re sisters who love and support each other but who, by circumstance, live on opposite ends of the country. The contrasts between the lives of the Vegas computer nerd and the domestic-goddess-goes-to-work are fascinating, but it’s really the obvious connection between these women and their common love of dogs, crafts and gay podcasters that makes it well worth a half hour away from those predictable NPR-created podcasts that probably overwhelm your (ok, and my) playlists. Enjoy!
