Welcome back, dear listeners. Sorry for the delay; did you know that they don’t teach you audio editing in undergraduate social work programs? No matter! On this week’s episode, Ren discusses how difficult it is to talk about someone’s legacy, especially when that someone is Rush Limbaugh.
Virulent racist, gross-ass homophobe, and writer of children’s books (featuring a talking horse named Liberty, which is as terrifying as it sounds), Ginger gets schooled on some of Rush’s greatest lessons, such as the proper usage of the word “feminazi,” how to get fired from almost every job, and why Europe is vastly inferior to the US (hint: it has something to do with interior plumbing). Also, we have the (brief) return of Beans!
Self Care Plan
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, so let’s have a little holiday-focused self care.
- Treat yourself to a gift. Who says you can’t buy yourself a heart-shaped box of chocolates or a beautiful bouquet of flowers? Even if you don’t want a cliche Valentine’s Day gift, you can get yourself something you have been wanting, like a nice sweater, or a basket of contraceptives just to piss off sex-shaming dickbags.
- Make something you love for dinner. Who needs a fancy dinner at a restaurant when you could easily make yourself something delicious? Don’t feel pressured to cook anything crazy, just make your favorite meal, like mac and cheese or the rich
- Take a social media break. Social media can honestly be exhausting on Valentine’s Day. People are posting one of two things: pictures of how they’re celebrating with their significant other, or pictures or quotes on how much they hate the holiday. Take a break from social media as well as any platforms that allow bigoted assholes to spew their shitty opinions.
