Girls, preach! I so appreciated this podcast. I've had the same shaming at a doctor's office, from nurses and doctors. Being told when I was 17, told by a nurse practitioner, that breast surgery would be an option when I'm young so I'd have more success with boys! 17 and I still remember what I was wearing and what we did after and how this was something I couldn't discuss with my parents. I'm 55 now. It's like it happened yesterday! Body shaming is so traumatic and who is the worst culprit? Medical staff! ARGH!!!!

so ifa cop makes an excessive force error, then they should be blacklisted from law enforcement. so if a journalist makes a factual error in reportage, they should be blacklisted from journalism. according to the guardian, the cop who did the shooting has been fired: you reported that the cops were on administrative leave. an error? is this the end of your career? or are you held to a lower standard?

the lyrics about "no trespassing" are actually originally part of Guthrie's song. https://www.woodyguthrie.org/Lyrics/This_Land.htm And I agree. This song should be our anthem.

I couldn't make it through the first episode because to be completely honest, I was getting a little annoyed that the girls kept talking all over each other. I wasn't seeing much of a point other than all of the girls trying to speak about their views coming from the perspective of a Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren perspective. I'm going to listen to a few more episodes to give it a chance, but if there isn't any views other than the Socialist left oh, I don't know if I'll be able to continue. I'm a die-hard crooked media girl. but I like to hear no different perspectives on issues.

I abhor Reality TV & I used to look down my nose at it till someone pointed out that I probably like trash too, just in a different genre. And sure enough, I love classical music but Britney Spears is also my jam; 2 of my fave books are [Great Expectations] & [Jane Eyre] but Janet Evanovitch's [One For the Money] really cracks me up. One person's trash is another person's treasure; the gift is in being able to admit you're a trash person. Which, it turns out, I AM.
