Les Talk! Girlpond Episode 9: Playing Catch Up

April 22, 2016

Special Note: After this episode left the studio, we received the shocking & tragic news that our very own Prince had passed away. A lot of dirty dancing was done in gay clubs all over the world to many, many super sexy Prince songs. More importantly, he was a bright, beautful, kind, and authentic (aka "sexy") spirit. He was a well-respected member of the community where he lived not too far from where we are, May his body rest in peace, and may his spirit fly free! Our very gay hearts, are very sad today. 

Episode 9: Playing Catch Up features the Scavos, your favorite Armchair Philospher & Quarterback, briefly fantasizing about a romantic tryst between Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff & Hillary Clinton, pseudo-analyzing James Franco, and not-so-surprised by Coach Jennifer Azzi & Xena Warrior Princess coming out! The ladies cheer for Heather "The Heat" Hardy's latest win @ Barclay Centre in Brooklyn, and the smokin' hot U of MN Gopher Softball Team. Paula discusses the WNBA Draft results and lowering the basket. Nikki touches on the need for more women "behind the camera", Grace's hit "You Don't Own Me" and guess who gets "The Sexy Award"? 
Mea Culpa: When I said Diana Rousseff, I meant Dilma. And when I said "Suicide Attack", I meant "Suicide Squad".
