Each week, political commentator and comedy writer Erin Ryan is joined by a bicoastal squad of funny, opinionated women to talk through everything from reproductive rights to romcoms. They break down the political news of the week, plus the topics, trends, and cultural stories that affect women’s lives. New episodes drop every Thursday.
This week, we take a moment enjoy the sweet taste of 2018 victory before we start full steam ahead into 2020. Erin is joined by Kiran Deol and Alyssa Mastromonaco to break down everything that went down on election night, and all the firsts female candidates and voters achieved. Then, Erin talks with a very happy EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock about how women are the present and future of progressive politics. Plus, as always, our Hills!
This week: Erin tries to give a pep talk, Megan Gailey teaches us about safety work and Kiran Deol shows up dressed like a pirate. Your hosts tackle the news, from the conservative failson who attempted to pay women to report false accusations against Robert Muller, to Kavanaugh’s triumphant return to bro haven Georgetown Prep, to why we can’t rely on the “blue wave” to save us in the midterms. Then, Erin talks with Oregon Governor Kate Brown about her hard fight for reelection and the importance of governorships. Plus, actress and activists Amber Heard joins us for Personal/Political. And of course we end with our Hills. Don’t forget to VOTE! VOTE OR YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US!
Everywhere you look…We’ve got a full house on Hysteria! This week Erin is joined in studio by Kiran Deol and Grace Parra as they weigh in on witchcraft as a viable fix for this country’s problems, Trump’s horrific attempt to define gender, and later check in with a few of the women we’ve highlighted running in competitive house races. Plus, Alyssa joins in for a status check in UterUS Weekly, Blair and Ziwe talk the migrant caravan in Let’s Get Uncomfy and as always, the Hills I’ll Die On.
This week Erin is joined by Megan Gailey and Grace Parra to meditate on the merits of “horseface” as an insult, parse all the ways USA gymnastics has fucked up, and repeatedly smack our foreheads over Hillary Clinton’s latest comments on Monica Lewinsky. Then, a palate cleanser: the hosts showcase a few inspirational women in governor’s races. Later, Erin chats with New York Mag’s Rebecca Traister about where all this female rage came from and what to do with it. And still later: Ziwe Fumudoh and Blair Imani debut a new segment called “Let's Get Uncomfy!” And as always we lay out the Hills We’ll Die on.
This week, Erin is joined by Megan Gailey and Kiran Deol to discuss what’s next in our Kavanaugh hellscape. (Trust us, we’re just as tired of talking about Judge Brett as you are!) Then they break down a few anti-choice initiatives that have creeped their way onto several state’s ballots. And later: North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp joins Erin to bond over being Midwestern and explain how she came to vote no Kavanaugh. Plus, This Week in Sorry and the crew gets petty with Hill I’ll Die On.
