Episode Seven: Flemeth’s Flemish

This week Amelia and Bell talk about reality shows, which kind of sucks for Bell because she has to write the show notes and there are a LOT of links this week. Which she almost decided not to look up because she's pretty sure you guys don't use them anyway.  We also have a question for you this week: How willing are you to put your boobs on TV? Hypothetically. We're not actually going to put any boobs on TV.

Amelia haaates Mad Men.

Bell LOVED Gone Home.

Also mentioned: 

Amelia's a Douche sometimes

Also, for some reason I have "Dick space" written on my notes, although I have no idea why. Just thought I'd share. 
**ooh I know this one. It's because I was running out of disk space on the computer but I said "dick space" on accident. Although why you wrote it down, I have no idea. --Amelia

Bell does not recommend Snowballin: I Fucked Frosty by Aurelie Vierge. Please. Let us take that bullet for you.

Episode 4: Controlling the Tone of Your Butt-farts

We have titles like that and still call ourselves adults. 

Anyway, on this episode, Amelia is enraged by a quote by Ani DiFranco, inspiring the "ladies" (I use that term as lightly as humanly possible) to discuss the choices women have available to them, the choices they make, and how they are judged by other women and by society in general for those choices. Then we have special guest Daxhack provide an expert's opinion on whether it's possible to play songs with your butt. 

The offending quote: 

"The pains associated with menstruation and childbirth (even the emotional pain) are the price of having agency with the bloody, pulsing, volcanic divinity of creation, and they lie at the core of feminine wisdom. The literal experience of “my body is your body / your blood is my blood" holds great insight into the way of things. A self-possessed woman in childbirth can be a powerful teacher for all (including herself) on the temporality, humility, and connectedness of life. What if the medical establishment that purports to be saving women from the specter of pain and danger is instead ejecting them from the seat of their power?" -Ani DiFranco

Bell adored Pacific Rim
