Skela, Feminism & Champagne
To say that feminism is a hot topic during this election year would be an understatement as vast as as the toupee jokes I want to make right now.

In this episode, host Ana Fernatt drinks champagne with recording artist Skela and discusses what feminism means to her and how it shows itself in her life and art. We also get a sneak peak of her newest single Always, Always before it's official release tomorrow, October 14. Make sure to subscribe to Champagne & Snark! We have new episodes every Thursday!

For centuries, mental health issues carried with them a life-altering social stigma. In recent years, however, mental health is something that we are beginning to talk about openly and without fear.

That's where Nicole Knepper, author of Moms Who Drink And Swear, comes in. Known for her direct, real and humorous take on motherhood, Nicole is also a practicing clinical therapist.
