It's our World Cup Wrap Up, ya'll! Becca is back in the United States from her whirlwind trip abroad to see the USWNT play and win (not only the trophy, but all our hearts)! We discuss the highlights and lowlights of the tournament and generally fawn over all the players. Plus, we take some tangents into other aspects of Becca's trip, including the lack of MPAA in French Film Festivals and leaving your life behind to become a chocolate aficionado. And, as always, with finish with recommendations for each other.

BWG 144- World Cup and Haircuts
On this episode, we're discussing what's been weighing on our minds recently. For Becca, that means the World Cup and how being a fan of a female centered sport causes friction in the real world. For Shannon, that means debating herself about haircuts and how presenting yourself to the world is endlessly difficult. And, as always, we finish with recommendations for each other.

BWG 143 - Goodbye to GoT
Honestly, we're not fans of Game of Thrones and haven't been for a long while. Still, it's the end of an era and we wouldn't be doing our duty as pop culture fans if we didn't dedicate an episode of our own to this show and it's unhappy end. And, as always, we end with recommendations for each other.

Your hosts are back again! I know - unbelievable, right?? We do what we do best these days, catch up on each other's lives and the media we've enjoyed while we were away.

BWG 138- Catching Up Again
We're terrible, no-good podcast hosts that break promises. We apologize for going off the grid - during Oscar season no less! But we finally got the chance to sit back down and catch up on what we've missed in each other's lives and in current pop culture. It's just one big recommendation, basically (except for The Bachelor - eff that finale, right?). We make no promises to be back next week this time, because like it or not, we're reasonable adults.

BWG: Ep. 132 - Taylor Swift and the Changing Artist
After a week off thanks to crazy work schedules, your bespectacled hosts get back to it with a conversation about Taylor Swift's new song debut and the dangerous minefield that is self-reinvention.

BWG: Ep. 131 - Hair Drama

They relive bad hairstyles of years past (rattails! square hair!) and discuss more options for their pin straight hair in the future. (Full disclosure, we didn't even attempt to touch on the history and double standards surrounding WOC hair. We wouldn't do it justice since it's not our experience of hair culture.)

In this week's episode, we try to untangle the mess of personal responsibility that comes with watching TV nowadays. How do we avoid toxic fandoms and Twitter wars?

All tough questions that we might not fully answer. And, as always, we finish with recommendations for each other.
