The Bossy Show

The Bossy Show

The motto of this new political talk show is Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Wokeness. Queer feminist writers Jill Gutowitz (Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan) and Carmen Rios (Everyday Feminism) steadfastly pursue that woke life with both freshness and ferocity.

The duo have no qualms about being brutally honest about how they feel about the current political climate and the state of the country. They consistently come out swinging on topics like the constitutionality of the Muslim ban, spewing actual facts about abortions and abortion accessibility, and the art of the filibuster.

The show isn't ranting and raving. Each episode features multiple guests related to their titular topics, including Human Rights Campaign press secretary Sarah McBride, Women's March on Washington organizer Jackie Savage, journalists reporting on the front lines of the government and lawyers who were on the ground helping those affected by the Muslim ban.

The best part of the show is its dedication to giving its viewers relevant information to survive the next four years, as well as resources to fight back against the many challenges ahead.

Second-best part: Trump Tinder. Just trust me on this one.
