    BOOK CLUB: The Wedding Party

    BOOK CLUB: The Wedding Party

    Happy Saturday, book club pals!

    This month we read 'The Wedding Party' by New York Times bestselling novelist Jasmine Guillory. The book follows characters Maddie and Theo, who have two things in common: they share a best friend called Alexa, and they hate each other. Yet, underneath the sharp barbs they toss at one another is a simmering attraction that builds until they can't resist sneaking off together when Alexa isn't looking. This book is full of love, lust, and sex, which gives us oh so much to talk about.

    Hello, everybody!

    Welcome to part two of our very special series on Rihanna. When Rihanna was 20 years old, she fell in love with musician Chris Brown. Their relationship - and the police headshot of Rihanna that was leaked online - changed her life forever.

New favorite podcast

I have been bingeing the Scandal episodes and am hooked! I love how Zara and Mich take a very balanced and empathetic approach in their deep dives.

Love the pod but confused by direction

I love Zara and Mich- their banter, the flow of their discussions, their smart analysis of pop culture events, and I love everything about their individual brands (humour, fashion, personality quirks). Scandal is absolutely bang on in terms of reading the vibe of the content people want to consume at the moment. However, I am, like many people, kind of confused by the direction of the mailbag and two cents. I feel it makes a lot more sense for people as smart, analytical and up to date as Z and M would move into analyzing content related to current affairs/ politics / finances in a way that is engaging and relevant for a smart pop culture focused audience looking to expand their interests, instead of going into the relationship advice space which is so well saturated.

Weirdly, as a listener of both Shameless and Life Uncut, it feels like Shameless is trying to turn into Life Uncut (mailbag = Ask Uncut) and Life Uncut is trying to turn into Shameless (hooked hitched and hung up = Scandal). Just an interesting observation as to direction- otherwise love love your work girls.

Love!

One of my new favorite podcasts! It’s so fun and easy to listen to. I was really craving a good pop culture podcast and am so happy I found this one. I love the hosts (and their producer). Their conversations are thoughtful and well researched while keeping it light and fun. LOVE their deep dive episodes into past scandals. None of my friends are as pop culture obsessed as I am, so it’s been a fun outlet for all the gossip I consume
