Episode 76: Dirt Queens & Democracy
Happy New Year Gurls! We're back from our mid-season break to break down a couple of messy, gutter queens that aren't us. We talk about some queens from our own family who can't trust along with some politicians who may or may not be responsible for the end of our democracy. Here's to another an even numbered year :|.

(Rebroadcast) Episode 12: Global Gurls - 7.01.20
This week is a throwback to one of my favorite episodes, Global Gurls. Not just because it was a reminder of the jet setting gurls Deveraux and I use to be but the turn it took when Deveraux recounted one of her most embarrassing (and hilarious in my opinion) travel memories. Sadly over a year later we're still no traveling the same way. But happy to share this excerpt from back when we used to go WAY too long lol.

(Rebroadcast) Episode 10: We Shall Overcome - 6.17.20
Unfortunately Insecure had the audacity to end while we're on our mid-season break so we'll be breaking down our thoughts on the end of the series in a future episode. But to tide you over, hear our thoughts on the previous season and where Molly and Issa's relationship ended up before the start of the final season. Oh and I guess we also talk about George Floyd protests, police brutality and Supreme Court rulings...good times.

We did it gurls! It only took us a couple months but we've finally made it through Robert R Jones The Prophets. And we have A LOT of feelings...especially about that ending!

Hey Pham, we ran into a teeny bit of technical difficulties with the audio in the second half. Apologies. Don't worry though we'll have it worked out for when we come back for Season 2.
