S03E07 - Everything Sucks (Except for Women)

Co-host Kerry takes us back over some of last week's stories and shows us how women are making a positive impact in otherwise bleak situations. Myanmar, Dakota Access Pipeline and the Flint Michigan water crisis all have examples of women stepping up to meet the challenge. Also, Kerry is suffering from work anxiety and Stephen's mom probably loves heaven.

S03E05 - Spanish Fly on the Wall

An autonomous region of Spain, Catalonia, may try to declare independence.  We define all the words in that sentence. And think about the future of Spain and the EU.  Also, we talk about the media and narrative, especially with the mass shooting in Las Vegas.  Also, Kayla (wrongly) loves candy corn and Stephen takes a shower.
