Maybe She's Born With It. Maybe They're Human Rights.

EHappy Women’s History Month! We’re celebrating by highlighting the UN Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women or CEDAW. We went over the basics about human rights a few weeks ago, but now we’re going to talk about the things that women are entitled to but are still striving to get. Equip yourself against mansplainers and misogynists by listening to this episode! If you somehow need hard evidence that women aren’t treated equally…use the internet every once and awhile. Don’t say you weren’t warned. Listen here iTunes Here Stitcher Here

Pay Attention to Venezuela

EPeople are starving in Venezuela. Haven’t heard about it lately? The crisis in Venezuela should be spotlighted in spite of neglectful American media outlets. Ever since the death of Hugo Chavez, what was once the most stable nation in South America has been crumbling, endangering the lives of its people.We in the states have a portrait of a defiant Chavez fed to us, but in this episode we parse out the good and the bad, and how this story is unfolding right now.

Pay Attention to Venezuela

What’s a Rex Tillerson?

EHi fronds! We’re back at it with another episode that addresses the big orange elephant in the room: Donald J. Trump, the current president of the United States. I know, it still sounds weird and sad to us too. We cover what we can expect from his foreign policy for the next four (ONLY FOUR) years of his reign term. This includes, a plan for ISIS, the wall, and making regrettable phone calls that could get us blown to pieces someday. (Stars! They’re just like us!) So strap in as we prepare for this ride together. We’d also like to note, that we recorded this episode a couple of weeks ago, so there’s no mention of the aftermath of the Muslim/Immigration Ban or the recent confirmation of our new Secretary of State. It’s all still relevant though! Listen here Sources here Subscribe to us on iTunes and Stitcher
