Lighting Myself on Fire
About This Show
A friendship that has spanned across four states, lots of texts, and plenty of feminist outrage and heartache. The dynamic duo, Melissa Hedges and Emily Jensen, met in The Middle of Nowhere, TX (AKA Nacogdoches) in the fall of 2010. Now, a BFA, BA, and 6 years later, Melissa and Emily’s hobbies include, but aren’t limited to: “adulting,” trying not to go broke, constantly looking at plane tickets out of the country, and talking. Lots and lots of talking. Uteruses. Human rights. Game of Thrones. Feminism. Stupid Facebook posts. Disease. Why everyone is getting married and having babies. And, last but certainly not least, how Trump got elected.
Are you a decent human being that understands intersectional feminism? Or simply wants to learn? Or just wants to listen to two funny chicks talk? If so, come listen to these well-read ladies talk about things (like PFPT, what's “pre-funking?”, and male birth control) and try to change the world one episode at a time.

SHOOTING THE SHIT: EPISODE 3
It'e time for everyone's favorite, another episode of SHOOTING THE SHIT!! Only this time, we have a special guest joining our drunken ramblings, and she's one of our favorite people from our good ol' college days. (P.S. If we sound a little loopy it's because we lost our minds, but that's normal, right?)
This episode of SHOOTING THE SHIT we hang out with Hannah Johnson and talk life, 13 Reasons Why, how stay at home moms are just as cool as working moms, and the line between a healthy relationship and an unhealthy one. Also spoilers for 13 Reasons Why and Game of Thrones, and trigger warning for talk of sexual assault and mental health.
