Episode 51 - Fancy Pants by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

We have had all our shots and we are back in the same room  so get ready for some seriously overexcited people!  (That would be us but it would also be the people in this book.)  Fancy Pants  by Susan Elizabeth Phillips - she's a British socialite with big "See You Next Tuesday" energy, he's a hot redneck golfer with a self esteem problem, they slap each other in parking lots more than the average couple does!  Secret babies!  Imaginary Jack Nicklaus!  Real Jack Nicklaus!  Riches to rags to riches!  Found families!  The weirdest citizenship ceremony you have ever seen in a book!  We ended up really enjoying this book but the content warnings are not a joke , y'all.  It's got dead toddlers, non-custodial kidnapping, a guy you previously liked being a complete monster to a nine year old child, the n-word, 80's homophobia, fat shaming perpetrated by Eva Peron , some ladies who may or may not even be sex workers getting called "semi-hookers"... it is

Episode 34: Blackout



In this episode we take a timeout to reflect on the ghastly history of racial violence in America by doing a deep dive into South Carolina's ugliest past and inviting Leslie from Geeky Girls' Night In and Geeky Girls' Guide to Life to speak. The first two segments carry strong content warnings about murder, legal lynching, and a police shooting mischaracterized as a riot.  If you'd like to skip to Leslie's emotional segment, you can start around the 35 minute mark.
