In this episode, hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray are joined by Kerry Slone, female advocate and social media maven at Stilettos and Shotguns. Kerry has been speaking to, and empowering, women for years. As a victim of domestic violence herself, she wants to teach women how to protect themselves and their loved ones. She is a strong advocate for the second amendment, but is the first person to tell you, not everyone should have a gun. However, those who wish to be able to defend themselves should not have barriers put in their way. Part of our discussion dives into classic feminism versus the new modern feminism and how they are at odds with one another. We conclude with an announcement by Kerry of a new initiative of hers, through her non-profit, We the Female, to help train and pay for the permits for up to 250 women in the Houston area. She hopes that event will be just one of many more to follow around the country.
As we move to Walt’s review of yet another horrible movie, Kerry sticks around and has fun weighing in on it and the rest of our segments. After the film review, Alan and Walt dive into their it’s no BS news segment followed by the entertainment segment.
Walt binged Cocaine Cowboys and found it quite entertaining. He has also started to re-watch Santa Clarita Diet. Finally, he caught Ferris Bueller’s Day Off currently running on Netflix. Alan watched the Spielberg film, War Horse, for the first time and loved it. He also kept up with some of his favorite YouTube channels, including Ashleigh Burton and Popcorn in Bed, both of whom happened to react to Mad Max Fury Road. Of course, this meant Alan has a re-watch of the movie, himself. Kerry has been re-watching the series, Turn, about the spies of the Revolutionary War. She is also re-watching The Walking Dead and recommends the John Adams miniseries starring Paul Giamatti.
Walt is continuing to pour though the homage to the road trip, “Don’t Make Me Pull Over.” Kerry suggests, “Revolutionary Mothers,” and, “Dearest Friend,” which are the letters of Abigail Adams.
Walt suggests three podcasts this week: This Won’t Hurt a Bit, Superego and Mascots. Alan has been listening this week to the album, Hummingbird, by the New Age group 2002 as well as the double-album, Pulse, by Pink Floyd. As to podcasts, he has been listening to The Great Escape Minute, Radio Labyrinth and 60MW Podcast. Kerry has been grooving to some 80’s punk classics and comparing the sounds of British punk versus American. She loves the song, “Down from the Mountain,” off the O, Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. On YouTube, she likes, The Skinny Medic, and enjoys the rapid-fire humor on the Johnny B channel, especially Spicy Fridays.
