Firecracker's friend Flames joins her for a spirited conversation about...all the things. Firecracker gets called out for flakey segment producing. And then there's a discussion about Generation Shaming. Why do the baby boomers talk so much crap about Gen X? Why is Gen X so bent on hating Millennials? Are haters just gonna hate or...WTF
This week we do some chatting about divorce - tips on how to survive one if you must go through it, tips on what to consider before you pull that trigger, and technique for not being an asshole. We also touch on custody, and child support. Aaaaaand, not surprisingly, wander off into related topics like the gender pay gap, the luxury of being a 2 income home, other sundry feminist topics.
Firecracker is always talking about staying out of prison. But in this episode she talks with a badass woman who goes into prison on purpose on the regular!
It's a doggone good interview with Samantha of Marley's Mutts Pawsitive Change Program - an amazing program that rehabs both humans and dogs and saves lives. We talk about motherhood, being a woman volunteer in high and max security California prisons, dogs, and who knows what else.
When I reached out to Zach to schedule some talk time with someone from the program, I told him the podcast was primarily feminist content but we were open to all kinds of topics. He said "say no more, I have just the person for you". And a few seconds later there was a group text involving Sam. She was a total pleasure to talk to and she's a badass vegan momma dog training ninja to boot!
Firecracker has a fantastic chat with Heather Skow, wife of Marley's Mutt's founder Zach Skow, who has been on the program before. A badass in her own right, an animal advocate, feminist, and the ultimate Mother. We discussed how powerful it is for women to lift each other up rather than tear each other down, and how to always look for the light, even when you're knee deep in bullshit, dog shit, or negativity.
Firecracker and Sparky do some serious ranting about first world problems. But that doesn't make them less vital and important. Body acceptance, Women's reproductive rights, and yes, Christina Applegate...I love you. (Call me).
If a firecracker explodes in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it still make a noise?
This week Firecracker is solo and is hogging the mic to dish about some basic astrology stuff. Plus your usual rants about feminism and the patriarchy and stuff like that. But also, planets and woo woo and stars, Oh My!
they played with our rights, got lost in the game, oh baby baby oops, they fucked with the election, and now we're all screeewwwweeed...they're not that innocent... (Love you Brit) This week: Cold War Redux, Measles, Abortion Rights...yep still...and various other profundities. Is that a word?
