Whiskey Wednesday originated in the beautiful Saint Louis, Missouri. A group of friends brought together through the beauty of whiskey, beer, sports, and food. However, it has since devolved into ramblings about Arnold, 007, and Chick Flicks. Yet, somehow it's now better?
I talk about film with people from different fields, and experience levels to help myself and others learn more about the Biz.
A lot of people claim to want things to be better in this country, but their main tactic is to tell half the country they’re stupid and bad. I don’t think most of us are actually that dumb or mean-spirited, but we’re so thoroughly given a raw deal when it comes to media and leadership that we’re all liable to be misinformed and distrustful of each other. It’s difficult not to be in a state of constant frustration with the deception and corruption, not to mention ineptitude, of the people who ...
The Harvey Girls were not "just waitresses," they were adventuring, trailblazing, refined young women who helped settle the American West. And the story of these brave and hardworking women can't be told without discussing the man behind them: Fred Harvey.
Starring Sam Rockwell, Sam Rockwell, Sam Rockwell, and the disembodied voice of Kevin Spacey...I hope you like Sam Rockwell and not a ton of action. We watched Moon because my co-host is mean.

Dolph Lundgren stars as a Russian Special Forces man who has a change of heart mid war...and you don't want to anger a buff super human killing machine.
Do you like Mila Kunis, skating dog men, and yelling? Then 60% of this movie is for you! It's mighty confusing but it was also a fun time.
Ten years ago, we met (literally MET!) to record our first episode. It's been a journey, and we thought as a milestone birthday celebration, we would ask listeners what The History Chicks have meant to you. Thank you so very much for the years of friendship. (sings) AND MANY MORE.....

Sue gives a new persepective on Advent.By Sue Pratt
Charlotte didn't let her circumstances and the discouragement of others stand in the way of her goal of becoming a published author; she got knocked down over and over before she was able to present the world with one of the most beloved heroines in literary history. Along the way, we have a chance to talk about the lives of her literary sisters: E…
Trevor shares a few thoughts for Advent around the theme of 'waiting'.By Trevor Withers
Bonus Episode: My most recent ex-wife and her gf (or personfriend - they a non-b now) came over to sit on the back porch and chat. I left the mic on, so enjoy this clip about dental damming, the nature of period blood, and what the deal is with female sexual pleasure. Bonus bonus clip at the end: My gf joined us and talked about covidified holidays…
Laurence addresses this question raised by the children in Network.By Laurence Singlehurst
We'll take you to the bank...the blood bank! Steven Seagal is Mason Storm and apparently he is hard to kill. Oh he also "grew up in the Orient"...that's a line in this movie. It's a delightfully good time to watch. One of Seagal's best movies, which isn't saying much. Just listen to up ramble and gush over Seagal.…
We watched all three missing in action movies, it was entirely too much Chuck Norris. We talk about underwater machine gunning, spy boats, chicken friendship, Cannon films, but mostly we talk about Chuck winter wardrobe in southeast Asia.
(whispering) The Octagon...he knows...we know...nothing about what the fuck is going on in this movie. Clearly made on a shoestring budget and mostly in a mexican restaurant and/or a desert. Chuck Norris whispers his way towards defeating ninjas or his brother, it's unclear
Pocahontas did save lives... just not the way (or the one) that you've been taught. We revisit this 2017 episode to learn the real, not Disneyfied, story.

After her creator died, Wonder Woman strayed quite a bit from where she began. She had her wings clipped by the censors in the 1950s, and lost her powers entirely in the 1960s. It took Gloria Steinem, Ms. Magazine, and the 1970s to bring Wonder Woman back to her feminist roots.
Elizabeth concludes our Jonah series by looking at what we can learn from this final chapter.By Elizabeth Harris
They discussed Bryan Callen, Chris D'Elia, dating in the post-sexual revolution/post-understood-sexual-mores world and our need to renegotiate norms, Louis CK, Bill Cosby, Aziz Ansari, women's part in the problems, and more. If you don't hear any of those topics in this episode or any more you think they ought to have talked about, they probably di…
Sue looks at the questions raised by this passage and gives a historical perspective.By Sue Pratt
She was forged in the fires of the suffragist movement, and beneath her abbreviated costume beats the heart of a lion. Fighting for truth, equality, and justice, "By the Spear of Athena and the Thunderbolts of Jove!" - it's Wonder Woman!
If someone you love is diagnosed with cancer you want them to get the best treatment from the best doctors. In 2013, patients in Michigan thought Farid Fata was that doctor. Between his prestigious education, years of experience and pleasant bedside manner, Fata was everything you could want in a doctor. But he was not who he appeared to be. From W…

Lynn draws out some helpful and practical points from chapter 1 of the book of Jonah.By Lynn Yee
A new spin-off focusing on sci-fi/space type movies and we are starting with Ridley Scott's Alien which neither of us have seen. We discuss face huggers, 2% milk blood, scurrying xenomorphs, and how that cat was both the most and least valuable member of the Nostromo...oh plus a new theme song.
The remake of Thunderball that was Connery's 7th and final film playing James Bond. This one was not great but plenty of things to talk about.
A JCVD classic...a group of wealthy psychopaths hunt the deadliest game of all, MAN! But more specifically they try to hunt the mullet attached to Jean Claude Van Damme. John Woo directs, bullets fly, New Orleans does not come out looking great...oh and Wilford Brimley is there too doing a cajun/creole nonsensical accent.…
MAGAA's new producer, Addie, and I discuss her "being canceled" in East SF, dicks, girldicks, ugly dicks, body shaming, making a new form of Christianity to save the US, being socialized as daughters (SAD), a fair amount about being raised Mormon, shorhair lesbian gender, and so much more.By Arielle Isaac Norman
We finish up our two-part series on women who ran for the US presidency in days gone by. Belva Lockwood ran in 1884 and 1888, and Shirley Chisholm threw her hat into the POTUS ring in the 1972 election. Neither candidate won the office, but they were both victorious at shattering glass ceilings to make room for women to come. Remastered from 2016.…

Here in the US, voting for the 2020 Presidential election has begun so we're revisiting the life of the very first woman to run for the American Presidency in 1872.
