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 is joined by Kiran Deol and Grace Parra rummage through this piping hot garbage week. Then, Alyssa Mastromonaco unloads on Brett Kavanaugh. And! Actor and comedian Michaela Watkins swings by to weigh in on shutting women down by calling them "crazy" or "hysterical." (Looking at you, Senator Ben Sasse.) We've also got This Week in Sorry and an entire mountain range worth of hills we'll die on.
Erin is joined by Kiran De'ol, Megan Gailey, and special guest host Zoe Lister Jones to ask the tough questions: Why does the president only care about violence against women when the woman is white and the man is not? What does a Louis CK comeback say about how the comedy world thinks of victims? And what on earth possessed French Open officials to think it was a good idea to take on Serena Williams? Plus, a special appearance by Alyssa Mastromonaco, who discusses what's up with Brett Kavanaugh, and who can stop it in a brand new segment called UterUS Weekly.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the Michael Cohen pleading guilty of times, it was the Asia Argento allegations of times. Join Erin, Grace, and Kiran as they journey through ups and downs of this wild week of news, get into the state of #MeToo, and discuss how hard it is to get a film made without a white guy. Then, stick around to find out how abortion-themed ice cream tastes.
Guest Phoebe Robinson of Two Dope Queens joins Erin Ryan, Megan Gailey, and Grace Parra at the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco. The crew predicts what fresh hell Omarosa will unearth, talks about why the pickup artist practice of "negging" women works for some male online daters, and takes some live Dude You Asks. We've also got a special all-music edition of The Week In Sorry and a new round of I'll Have What She's Having recommendations.
This week, Kiran De’ol and Megan Gailey join Erin to talk about female governors, the sad state of maternity leave, and the surprisingly contentious issue of parades. Then, the squad tackles the pink tax, the Week in Sorry, and I’ll Have What She’s Having. And finally, stay tuned to find out which of your hosts doesn't believe in astrology. The answer probably will not surprise you.
