Political commentator and comedy writer Erin Ryan is joined by a bicoastal squad of opinionated, mouthy women to discuss news, politics, and cultural stories that affect women’s lives, from serious to absurd. Women: 51% of the population and 100% of this podcast.
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.
We meet all six of our bicoastal squad of cohosts to discuss the Anthony Kennedy retirement announcement, as well as civility and other c-words. Then, the squad judges insincere public apologies and offers recommendations for cool stuff women are doing and making.
