    It's Not All Speculums

    Lauren and Emily talk about health care and chronic pain, a topic near and dear to Emily. We also get a "what are you watching" update during our never-ending quarantine and confirm that Emily is not, in fact, a Pokèmon.

    The Broads Watch Mrs. America Episode 1

    Emily and Lauren talk about the premiere episode of FX's original miniseries Mrs. America, which follows the fight for (and against) the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s.

    From Vulture:

    “Schlafly comes across as a complex, ambitious figure with a limited worldview and no awareness of that worldview’s limits, nor curiosity about widening it further. To put it more bluntly: She’s the worst kind of white woman.”

    If You're Going To Lose, Lose First

    If You're Going To Lose, Lose First

    Lauren talks with Iowa State Representative Jennifer Konfrst about what she's reading and listening to (it's My Favorite Murder), why she first ran for office in 2016 and, most importantly, why she ran again after losing the first time around.


    She's the definition of persistent and we're so thankful she joined the show. It will not be the last time.
