Hello listeners and welcome to our next Full Episode (we are super early but we just got too excited to wait)!
This month the Girls cover a range of topics in the Bullpen from new superhero tv to new comics to the fierce joy that is the set pictures from Ocean’s 8! We also talk a whole lot of politics and current events just before focusing on our comic for this month: MARCH by US Representative, John Lewis with Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell.
Mr. Lewis tells us about his experience in the fledgling Civil Rights Movement of the early 1950s against the juxtaposition of attending the 2009 Inauguration of the first black president of the United States. It is a moving and historical book that pulls no punches about just what was done in order to get the Civil Rights Movement off the ground, let alone to a place where it would be successful.
We also wanted to talk to you about something extremely important to us–anyone that listens to this podcast knows we are adamant supporters of justice, truth, and equality. The last few months of political gamesmanship and immoral, illegal, and prejudiced behavior by Drumpf and his administration have saddened and outraged us. What HASN’T been disappointing is the resistance movement this has inspired. We are so proud of our fellow Americans standing up for everything that truly makes this country great, that we are asking for your help in supporting two amazing organizations: Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. We are part of a team holding a fundraiser for these two groups and we are giving you the opportunity to sponsor segments of upcoming episodes in the following ways:
$5 = Ask us a question or solicit our opinion on any subject
$20 = Pick a comic or topic that will be the focus of a mini-episode
$35 = We will play a game of your creation in a future round of GameBangers!
$50 = Co-host an episode with us on the comic of your choosing!
