Cohosts Jasmine and Joy dish about what's up, including what's going on with Soleil Moon Frye, aka Punky Brewster, these days; how riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna makes a story about a dog eating a used tampon charming; why High Maintenance might get you addicted after one episode; what's the etiquette when it comes to asking a celeb for a "squishy hug"—and getting it (hint: it involves $200); which big names in the entertainment world have the strangest Chinese nicknames; how to leverage the ghost of Ernest Hemingway to rate your writing; and more.
Inspired by Hugh Grant's latest rant about sex scenes, we give a peak rating to the best steamy segments in books, movies, and tv shows. The soundtrack matters, folks.
We also review Katy Perry's new lipstick and mascara for CoverGirl as well as La Toya Jackson's memoir Starting Over (2011) and Corey Feldman's book Coreography (2013). Go 4 it?!
Plus ... TOM TIME, a two-minute segment of all the Tom Hiddleston headlines that we think you need to know as well as a few other tidbits about additional famous folks named Tom.
Thanks for listening.
