Political commentator and comedy writer Erin Ryan and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromonaco are joined by a bicoastal squad of funny, opinionated women to talk through everything from reproductive rights to romcoms. They break down the political news of the week, plus the topics, trends, and cultural stories that affect women’s lives.

Erin Ryan and Alyssa Mastromonaco discuss the latest bad news: anti-semitism’s surge, Britney Griner’s rejected appeal, and schoolchildren’s low post-pandemic scores on a national exam. Then, Lorena Austin joins to talk about her crucial campaign for Arizona State House. Next, Dana Schwartz and Kara Klenk join to talk about looking smart, gifted child syndrome, and rainbow-organized bookshelves. Finally, a healthy dose of joy and annoyance with Sani-Pedi.
