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.
Grace Parra and Megan Gailey join Erin to discuss the ongoing US invasion of the uterus, whether or not Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen should quit, and women who dunk. Then, comedian and Nailed It host Nicole Byer joins us to talk about workplace harassment, Dude You Asked and an island resort for women.
Erin Ryan is joined by Kiran De’ol and Grace Parra to discuss the serious issue of family separation and the much less serious issue of Trump fans having trouble getting people to swipe right. We also have a quick check in with Alyssa Mastromonaco and Ziwe Fumidoh in New York and an important lesson on Juggalos.
Erin, Alyssa, and Ziwe find a new meaning to NRA, discuss the ERA, and find sad-gress in the Emmy nominations. Also: This Week in Sorry, dumb hills we will die on, an important update on dick pics, and we pay our final respects to Alyssa’s cat emeritus, Bun.
Erin, Blair, and Ziwe try to find kernels of good news among the bad as they grapple with the imminent presence of a guy named Brett on the Supreme Court. They also talk about a new movie that sounds hilarious, weak apologies, and the hot new trend that’s sweeping the nation: public shaming. All this and more, this week on Hysteria.
In this episode, we discuss the idea of freedom and reproductive rights, plus a conversation about what’s going on at the U.S. - Mexico border. Then, we answer listener questions in a segment called Dude You Asked and close out the show with recommendations for cool stuff women are doing and making.
