From Caitlin Jenner to Cecil the Lion to the Iran agreement, 2015 fired the internet up. We talk about the biggest stories of the year, our lack of outrage, and how we think it might be most productive to discuss these issues moving forward. Against our wills, we also discuss Donald Trump's recent comments about Hillary Clinton, and we end with a critically important debate: bar soap vs. body wash.
Welcome to all our new listeners! Thank you to everyone subscribing and reviewing us on iTunes. This week we're discussing the recent Republican and Democratic debates. We're also sharing our favorite books from 2015!
In this episode, we get inspired by Gloria Steinem and share the ten things we'd like for Christmas this year. Spoiler alert: a lot of them involve a more thoughtful approach to politics. We also share some great news from around the world in The Pearls and offer a little gift-wrapping and gift-giving advice in The Heels.
We reluctantly talk about Donald Trump, because he just won't go away. We also follow-up on the latest after the San Bernardino and share some positive news stories... as well as who we respect from the other side this week.
We follow-up on our gun control discussion from last week and share little things that are making our lives better.
We also discuss the increasing gun violence in America and if gun control offers any real solutions. This episode was recorded on December 1 before the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California.
This week we talked about the continuing conflict in the Middle East, Congress's handling of the Syrian refugee crisis, Donald Trump's latest comments, and the impact of increasing the minimum wage. We also expressed our love for Project Runway Junior, Adele, and our favorite Thanksgiving videos.
In our third episode, we discuss the recent terror attacks in Beirut, Egypt, and Paris and how to meaningfully address conflict in the Middle East.
On this episode, Beth and I discuss protests at the University of Missouri, Yale University, and whether there is growing intolerance on college campuses.
We couldn't bear to wait a week to discuss the shocking results of Tuesday's election. In this episode, we talk about what Jack Conway did wrong, what Matt Bevin did right, and what it all really means for the future of Kentucky.
Beth and I are so excited to launch our new podcast Pantsuit Politics on Election Day! We couldn't find a program that brought a nuanced perspective to today's current events and political issues... so we decided to create one.
We're going to start every episode with a discussion of the week's news - a segment we're calling The Pearls. For our main segment The Suit, we'll discuss one major issue or story. Finally, in The Heels, we'll share something fun making our lives better - not politically or news related.
We hope you enjoy our premiere episode here or subscribe on iTunes! A huge thank you to Nicholas, Sarah's husband, for signing up to be our executive producer!
