Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This week on Problematic Women we interview, Shannon Bream, host of “Fox News at Night” and author of the new book, “Finding the Bright Side: The Art of Chasing What Matters.” We ask her about her time at Fox News—including through the Roger Ailes sexual harassment scandal, her decision not to have children, her experience with chronic pain, and whether or not she identifies as a feminist.
We also discuss:
— Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Ilhan Omar announced a $1 Trillion plan this week to wipe out every dollar of student loan debt in the United States. We have Heritage education policy expert Mary Clare Anselem on the show to discuss how the proposal would actually make college more expensive and be a regressive tax on the lower and middle class.
— Last week, author and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll came forward with an allegation that President Trump sexually assaulted her in a dressing room over 20 years ago. President Trump has denied the allegations. We share our opinions of the allegations and break down Carroll’s bizarre appearance on Anderson Cooper.
— ‘Foodie Calls’ (a play off of a “booty call”) are now a thing. Women are setting up a date for the purpose of getting a free meal rather than out of romantic interest.
— And finally, Kelsey is expecting! We crown baby girl Bolar as the Problematic Woman of the Week, and talk about how Kelsey is handling her first pregnancy. Also, we discuss why she and her husband decided not to do a gender reveal cake.
