    Episode 114: Do Nachos Cure Depression and Anxiety?

    HILO!

    In the chit chat, we talk about Chet Hanks and how he is very much not Jamaican at all. 

    Tucked away in the corrections corner is Baghdad, which is in IRAQ not Iran, like Amy said in last episode. 

    Also in the corrections corner, a public apology from Amy: I called Matt, Patrick, and Jonathan the three bitchiest queens I know. Calling a queer man a queen supports the stereotype that queer men are effeminate, and girly, which comes with a whole host of terrible connotations: weak, emotional, etc. It's not okay for me to toss it around casually, and I'm sorry. I firmly stand by calling them bitchy. 

    Speaking of people who need to apologize: disappointing celebrities talking about their diets.

    The fatphobic disaster this week is Jillian Michaels, and all the media. All of it. The body politics win is Sam Smith!

    The F****d Up S**t this week is the racist treatment of Meghan Markle.

    The make-up minute is Goof Proof Brow Pencil, and Thrive Eye List 360 primer.

    Amy recommnds Don't F*ck With Cats, and The Catch & Kill podcast. Paula recommends Mrs Fletcher.

    Episode 113: How DO You Get A Boner with All That Fat?

    We're so happy to have you back in 2020. I hope you are enjoying season 2 as much as we are. 

    First off we talk about Raddix Madden and how that and other baby names are just awful.  Also, we're so jazzed that Dwayne and Gabrielle are amazing parents to Zion. Amy is listening to the podcast "The Butterfly Effect" and learning a lot about porn. 

    F****D UP S**T:

    In light of the impending war with Iran, Amy describes generational trauma on a personal level by telling the story of how being deployed to Vietnam during the war affected her father.

    FATPHOBIC DISASTER:

    Paula describes the completely horribly gross disgusting fact that John Lithgow was given a fat suit for his role in Bombshell.

    The Body Politics WIN is that Kumail Najilani lost a bunch of pounds for a movie, he was explicitly clear about how detrimental it was for his health and marriage.

    RECOMMENDATIONS:

    Come From Away
    The Two Popes
    The Dream podcast
    Harry Styles new album
    JUDY!

New listener. Long time fan.

Insightful and engaging. I enjoy the fearless, honest discussions about difficult concepts that are entrenched in American culture.

I know they’re beneath you, but since you both are (not so) secretly still hungry for a new iTunes review...I figured it was well past time to send one your way.  This podcast has quickly become one of the highlights of my weekly catalog, especially now that I’ve been able to catch up on the most recent episodes (thanks new commute!).  I’ve never been super into podcasts, but this is one of the exceptions; I look forward to getting into a new episode as soon as it comes out. 

Amy, Paula, and their occasional guests constantly deliver the perfect mix of pop culture; current events; and spotlights on mental health, race relations, and body politics; all while sprinkling those discussions with their own experiences and witty banter.  If you’re looking for a lot of insight, a lot of sass, and a lot of heart in an easily digestible package, look no further. I truly believe one should never stop learning, and this podcast continuously makes me stop to think about and reevaluate my own biases, instances of fatphobia and participation in diet culture, and (last but certainly not least) shared love of all things Bravo.  Cheers to 104 episodes and to many, many more! FIVE STARS! #hungrybabyforlife #reverseregular

A New Perspective

Thank you for creating this digital space. I constantly struggle with identity and the role I play in society. I am gay and Jewish but I benefit tremendously from being a white cis-gendered male. Your conversations on body positivity and other issues facing marginalized groups helps educate me and makes me check my privilege in ways I hadn’t thought to before. I love you ladies, and often gasp overly dramatically when I open my podcasts and see a new episode there.
