What’s Poppin’ y’all?! Midterms are still running their course, but stop by and listen to the show for a breather! This week we get a little real and talk about GW’s pass/no pass policy and how it’s affecting our mental health. Making huge decisions that will greatly impact our GPA’s with such little time is so not cool. We also talk about GW’s actions towards allowing students to come back on campus, and measures that we would have loved to see.
Charlotte dives into the world of international pen pals, and lets us know what it’s like to form friendships and networks with people all around the world.
In terms of celebrity news, Amanda reads a few excerpts from Megan thee Stallion’s New York Times Op-Ed, “Why I Speak Up for Black Women,” and discusses the importance of the amplification of the perspective of black women, especially those who have been the victim of physical assaults.
We also discuss how Kourtney Karshashian made a great move promoting voting this upcoming election as most celebrities have – except for the fact that she decided to promote Kanye West’s candidacy, which is probably not the most productive decision for 2020.
We discuss a notorious social figure this week – Trisha Paytas – and how there is a method behind her madness. In recent news, Trisha has been picked up by an extremely popular YouTube podcast, H3H3, hosted by Ethan Klien. Ethan and Trisha are known to hate each other, making the title of their podcast “Frenemies” very appropriate. We also get into a discussion revolving celebrities partying over quarantine, and how they are not being held responsible or accountable.
