Oh damn it’s episode 17 and the show is a teen now. That’s right, you don’t know us! *door slams* – okay anyway, the girls do a quick round up of the wild news that’s been coming out of Saudi Arabia, an update on Qatar, Syria signing the climate change agreement, & look at Trump’s relationship with Kim Jong Un. The girls also have a special guest by the name of Miles Gray – that’s right, one of the co-hosts of Anna’s day job podcast The Daily Zeitgeist. The go through Miles’s upbringing in LA with a Japanese mother and African-American father and their unconventional ways (in the context of being an immigrant parent) of supporting his artistic endeavors. It’s a great show and Miles is super interesting (his dad was Michael Jackson’s personal photographer!!) so give it a listen and get down. Find Miles at @MilesOfGray on Twitter and Instagram.
