Les Talk! Girlpond Episode 16: “of Witches and Brew" features Nikki & Paula Scavo talking with Urban Growler Brewer Ladies, Jill Pavlak and Deb Loch, in front of a live audience. The UG Ladies share the story of their journey from the rat-race of Corporate America to the creation of the first woman-owned and woman-brewed microbrewery in Minnesota- The Urban Growler Brewing Company in St. Paul, Minnesota. During the course of the recording it becomes evident that Nikki is truly enjoying UG's delicious Cowbell Cream Ale, bringing out her wilder alter ego "Hot Chocolate". The program includes a brief pre-interview discussion of the issues surrounding the Minnesota Lynx's devastating loss of the 2016 Championship Title to the LA Sparks, Rhonda "Rowdy" Rousey's confirmed December 2016 bout with Amanda Nunes, the wedding of two Italian nuns, and US Presidential race within the context of what feels like the "witchification" of candidate Hillary Clinton and women who support her, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown's powerful "You can't be what you can't see"
declaration, Charlie Hebdo's surviving journalist's rallying cry "I don't have a right to be silent"
