Your two favorite wino's are baaaack with another SHOOTING THE SHIT!!! And can I say this STS is probably my favorite?? We get a lil boozy and talk about what we're passionate about in life: Sansa Stark is a total badass, pineapple DEFINITELY belongs on pizza, how I want to be Nathan Drake when I grow up, and Ivanka's dad is a terrible human being. The usual girl talk. We also have some semi-serious conversation about Charlottesville, why the South shouldn't really be proud of a history...

EPISODE 18: WE CAN'T ALL GET A LIFETIME MOVIE

We all try to block out middle school, but teachers can never escape. We all remember our favorite teachers and our least-favorite, but it's safe to say that teaching is a hard job that requires a devotion to learning and thick skin. But the unsung hero today is not a teacher per se, but a school psychologist who must navigate the law of land while looking out for students best interests. Not only do they deal with middle school drama, they help create plans for students with learning...

On today's episode we sit down with Michelle Rocca. She's got an impressive resume. She used to work for the Domestic Violence Coalition of Hawaii, she works part time with sex offenders, and is an all around bad ass lady! We discussed domestic violence and sex trafficking (and what signs to look out for--AKA "grooming"-- and how to help--and though it sucks we NEED to listen to the victims and trust their judgment) as well as Title IX, Betsy DeVos, and how it can alllllll potentially go...

It'e time for everyone's favorite, another episode of SHOOTING THE SHIT!! Only this time, we have a special guest joining our drunken ramblings, and she's one of our favorite people from our good ol' college days. (P.S. If we sound a little loopy it's because we lost our minds, but that's normal, right?) This episode of SHOOTING THE SHIT we hang out with Hannah Johnson and talk life, 13 Reasons Why, how stay at home moms are just as cool as working moms, and the line between a healthy...

On this week's episode, we sit down with the lovely Rachael Sue, breast cancer "previvor." Four years ago she was diagnosed with the BRCA2 gene, and lost her mother and grandmother to breast cancer years before. So, she decided to get a prophylactic double mastectomy to lower her chances of getting cancer.

Sensitive ears turn away because we're not holding back in this Shooting the Shit episode. We drink wine, play the "new friends" game, talk about sexy time and what's up with the way Hollywood portrays women? We talk a liiiitle about politics, but for our sanity try to keep everything light-hearted. Good news is we didn't have any terrible audio issues this round - we may finally have this podcasting thing down. COOL LINKS: PORN SITES FOR WOMEN (NSFW? Links to an article, not an actual...

EPISODE 13: WE’RE NOT IN THE OPPRESSION OLYMPICS

5/15/2017

This episode is a little different—you’re not going to hear us a whole lot. We’re turning our platform over to Tracia Banuelos and Debbie Ojeda-Leitner, two students who go to Wichita State University and served on the 59th session student government association with former President Joseph Shepard. During an end of the year banquet, out going president Joseph was called the n-word and almost assaulted by the incoming president’s parents. We talk with Debbie and Tracia about the incident,...

Happy almost mother’s day!! Honestly, moms are the coolest, and in honor of our great mothers we take a listen to one of our favorite single moms about an issue that affects up to 20% of new mothers in the United States: postpartum depression. Yes, the movies lied to us that pregnancy, birth, and raising a child is not all happiness and rainbows. Not only is it incredibly challenging to have and raise a child, there’s this specific type of depression that makes it difficult to connect to a...

EPISODE 11: BOTH SIDES WANT THE SAME THINGS

4/26/2017

On this week’s episode, we talk to someone on the “other side.” No, not ghosts or anything—a conservative. Someone on the toooootal opposite end of the political spectrum. We interview Stephanie Corder, graphic designer, super Catholic, and wine enthusiast extraordinaire about a bunch of politically divisive subjects: The Big Cheeto in office, the Muslim ban, conservative beliefs, Catholicism, birth control, physician assisted suicide, IVF, Tomi Lahren, graphic design, and much more....

This is our TENTH EPISODE! Get ready for a great listen, because in honor of Autism Awareness Month we have a very special guest who is an advocate for the community, a karaoke champion, and an "Assassins Creed" bride. Meet Erin Warry, a woman who has autism and is here to break it to the world that autism is not what the media portrays it to be (hint: Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory is a terrible representation and we love Temple Grandin.)We talk about the stereotypes, what growing up...

So, this week we have something a little different in store. We're starting a new series/segment/whatever you want to call it called SHOOTING THE SHIT! We're going to drink a little (or a lot in Melissa's case this week) and talk about topics YOU asked us to chit chat about. So, on this week's agenda, we got drunk and talked about body image, The Cliteracy (yes, the history of the clit), video games, queer baiting, and what we were like as "kids." In true bestie fashion, we definitely lost...

EPISODE 9: EVERYONE HAS A BIAS

3/22/2017

On this week’s episode, we interview the lovely Samm Mammoser (and yes—it’s Samm with TWO m’s). She’s just like us—she’s travelled and moved across the country—from Chicago, to Dallas, back to Chicago, and then Denver to be exact. We talk about how hard it is to make friends after college and in a new city (spoiler: it takes a year to create a core group of friends), and how Samm and Melissa met. Then we move onto the political realm: we discuss Black Lives Matter and Samm’s view on it...

EPISODE 8: THEY'D GET JUST HAMMERED WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPENED

3/15/2017

Addiction always has a story, and can come with a not-so-happy ending. This weeks guest is working on her happy ending after a history of drug and alcohol addiction that has put her in some very… compromising positions. Meet Megan Levenberg, a future counselor who plans to use her history in addiction to help others overcome theirs. This doesn’t come without a few trigger warnings though, including discussions of alcoholism, drugs, eating disorder, human trafficking, sexual abuse, rape,...

EPISODE 7: THESE PEOPLE ALL LOOK NORMAL

3/8/2017

On today's episode, we put on our investigative hats and discuss a variety of scary things: cold cases, JonBenet Ramsey, why we shouldn't give serial killers "names," how NOT to get kidnapped, and this dude who tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan to impress Jodie Foster. Tara Wrysec is the epitome of the "Too Good for This World, Too Pure" cinnamon roll meme. She's taking matters into her own hands and advocating for murder victims and their families. Stay tuned for her upcoming magazine,...

EPISODE 6: IT'S COMMON, BUT IT'S NOT NORMAL

3/1/2017

On this week’s episode, we get down to the nitty-gritty: what is pelvic floor dysfunction? How does endometriosis contribute to it? How can you fix it? It is a forever thing? Well, look no further. This week’s guest, Shannon Merriman, is Melissa’s old pelvic floor physical therapist, and she’s got the answers. We discuss what PFPT do (long story short—they use a “hands on” approach, so expect your vagina, vaginal canal, and your insides to get massaged and worked. A lot), how pain is...

EPISODE 5: IT'S IMPORTANT TO STAY

2/22/2017

This week's episode is a doozy, but in the best way possible: we talk with Melissa's old Team Lead, Julie, about a lot of shitty situations (TRIGGER WARNING): rape, attempted suicide, and how her Bipolar Disorder has shaped her life. She's a super awesome lady who deserves the world and more. We also talk about the Women's March, mental health stipulations, and Julie's decision not to have children because of her Bipolar. This episode will have you feeling all the feels. If they're not...

In this week’s episode, we sit down and chat with Maddy Osman, The Girl Who Takes No Bullshit™ and owner of The Blogsmith, a consulting agency. She’s a marketing guru, so Melissa gets to relive her “glory” days and discuss beauty and how marketing is influencing the industry, and where it might be going. Emily also enlightens us on Mike Pence’s email scandal (spoiler: it’s NOT fake news). And we also laugh and sigh about the obvious elephant in the room: Trump’s tweets, fake news, and how...

EPISODE 3: CANCER WASN’T MY FAULT

2/8/2017
More
This week’s guest is someone super special to us—especially to Emily. We interview her cousin, Katie, who is currently in remission from Ewing Sarcoma, a shitty type of bone cancer (but let’s be honest—what kind of cancer is good?) that she was diagnosed with at 11 years old. We also talk about some of the other blows life has dealt her: losing her father a few years ago, wondering if her cancer will come back, etc. But this chick is positive. Like, a “the glass is half full” kind of...
