We tried to talk it away. 

In this episode, Major and Lise are joined by our first #WomensMonth guest, Krystal Bonner of @pfeinc, and the ladies talk Balls and All (Jameis should be silent, Kyrie can't be serious, Baylor's coach sets us all back, and record-breaking at the combine), not speaking ill of the dead, Coachella tickets are now available, Moonlight men showing us their Calvins, Rachel is trans-African, every failure of the justice system for Kalief Browder, and Oprah 2020. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies discuss the journey of entrepreneurship and the good, bad, and ugly of being a boss. 

A certain Norf Nashville pizzeria is burning Lise's biscuits, the privilege in Hidden Figures was too much for Krystal, a special Detroit judge and the brilliance of James Baldwin get our Love Offering. The Merc with the Mouth is in the Geek Corner and a woman climbing ladders and breaking barriers is the GRITS we love.
