003: Carey Seuthe | Washington DC, what is it tho?

Best known for being an elite Washington insider, Carey Seuthe takes Erika and Faye on a journey to the hill. We learn about her role as some sort of press secretary, how she navigated the willful ignorance of politicians, and who (if anyone) she didn't lose respect for.

Coming 9/20 @ 3pm EST


Episode 002: Melinda Lee Holm | Friday the 13th, should we be Frightened?

Tarot Priestess Melinda Lee Holm joins hosts Erika and Faye to discuss Friday the 13th. Where did the fear of the 13th come from, why does it always revert back to Jesus, and is “The Craft” a realistic narrative? This episode covers all things magick, myths, and a weird intro about shrimp gender.


Episode 001: Ariela Barer | Airplanes. Like, how?

Actress Ariela Barer (Marvel’s The Runaways, One Day at a Time, Ladyworld) joins Erika and Faye to teach them about airplanes. Ariela explains how her airplane knowledge developed from a crippling fear that turned into hours of aerospace research — and still remains a crippling fear today.
