This week April and Kira talk about the power of myths and fairytales and the creepiness of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. The ladies also talk about Christmas party etiquette for this holiday season. Of course, the Smart Girls send their heartfelt condolences to the Bush family upon the passing of President George H.W. Bush at the age of 94. Rest in Peace, Mr. President and thank you for serving our nation.
Did you hear what Jada Pinkett Smith said about white women with blonde hair? Did you really hear what she was saying? On this week’s show, Kira leads an enlightening discussion about the important role hair plays in black culture … and why hair might be an important bridge between the races. Also, the latest on the wildfires in California and the recount madness in Florida.
The threesome is back together for this coast-to-coast, post-election extravaganza! Starting with the GOP loss in Teri’s home district of VA-10, through the Senate seat pickup in April’s Hoosier country, and ending with the disaster that is Kira’s home state of California, the ladies give you the unvarnished, grassroots perspective on Midterms 2018. Also, when did the Senate popular vote become a thing?
April and Kira were joined by guest host Morgan Murtaugh, who took some time out of her busy campaign schedule to share thoughts on many important topics. With a name like Smart Girls, how could April and Kira not have this brilliant California congressional candidate on as a guest host?
Teri is back behind the mic this week, joined by April, to talk all about the Kavanaugh circus. Thoughts you might hear voiced on this episode include: women aren’t always right, men aren’t always wrong, and accusations are not evidence. Also, the toxic masculinity of Lindsey Graham, Teri’s dog has an adventure, and Cris Collinsworth is a terrible football announcer.
The girls look great for being 100 episodes old! Thank you so much to all of the SGP listeners out there and all of the people who have supported us from day one. As a special SGP 100th episode treat, the girls talk about … how we got Trump! Also, why we shouldn’t be rejoicing over the censorship of Alex Jones.
The Smart Girls are thrilled to celebrate this milestone episode at our home on Ricochet and look forward to 100 more!
On this week’s episode, April and Teri are asking the important questions about peanut butter. Peter Pan or Jif? Crunchy or smooth? Also, pet surgeries are expensive, the left is collapsing under its own weight, and the food pyramid is to blame for Teri’s very unhealthy 1990s low-fat diet. And guess who is Alexa’s favorite conservative commentator?
