The RuPaul Revolution
HAPPY PRIDE! If there’s anyone that embodies the principles of Pride, it’s RuPaul, America’s most famous and commercially successful drag queen. She burst on the scene in the 90s in New York City, catapulting the community into the spotlight and making drag a more mainstream lifestyle. From her talk show to her MAC cosmetics campaign, RuPaul has ALWAYS been unapologetically herself, authentic in her self-expression and striving to make the world a better place through loving yourself first so you can love others second. Did we mention she’s our de-facto spiritual teacher?This week, my dear friend Derric (@derricdalton) from the 3am Mystery Club Podcast (@3amclubpod) is with me to discuss a person we truly look up to and aim to embody every single day - the one and only magical RuPaul Charles.SOURCEShttps://www.dazeddigital.com/fashion/article/26129/1/this-unearthed-vid-shows-rupaul-at-his-90s-besthttps://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/drag-explosion-fabulousness-defiance-90s-drag-n1252395https://screenrant.com/rupaul-drag-race-talk-show-1996-michelle-visage/http://www.newnownext.com/linda-simpson-the-drag-explosion-book-rupaul/12/2020/https://www.dazeddigital.com/fashion/article/51358/1/watch-rupaul-drag-race-christmas-holiday-special-1997-cult-tv-youtubehttps://www.billboard.com/articles/news/pride/8488631/rupaul-drag-race-guest-judges-nirvana-jimmy-kimmel-live-videohttps://www.thethings.com/things-you-didnt-know-about-rupaul/https://www.vox.com/culture/2018/3/6/17085244/rupaul-trans-women-drag-queens-interview-controversyhttps://www.mic.com/articles/44947/how-rupaul-became-a-leading-icon-in-the-gay-community#.mjWQkaIfchttps://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/33452/1/why-rupaul-was-a-cultural-icon-long-before-drag-race
The One About Rachel and Ross

The One About Rachel and Ross
The age old question: were they on a break? Ross Gellar and Rachel Green were one of the most iconic couples of the 90s, fictional or not. A lot of their relationship was problematic in hindsight, but there are some moments that show true and genuine love for each other. And all of it kept us coming back week after week, blunder after blunder, silly sitcom scenario after silly sitcom scenario.This week I’m by myself discussing Rachel and Ross - both the sketchy and the beautiful aspects of their relationship then and now, whether I thought they were on a break or not, the moments when Rachel stood up for herself, fan commentary, and my top 5 Ross and Rachel moments of the whole series. Because Ross and Rachel gave us hope that we may all, one day, find our lobster.Anti-Racism Resources: https://www.antiracismdaily.com/ Gun Reform Resources: https://everytown.org/ Domestic Abuse Resources: https://www.weaveinc.org/get-help Episode Sourceshttps://gritdaily.com/ross-and-rachel/https://www.buzzfeed.com/kaylayandoli/times-rachel-called-ross-out-on-friendshttps://www.insider.com/the-best-and-worst-episodes-of-friends-according-to-fanshttps://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/friends-writers-didnt-originally-plan-to-break-up-ross-and-rachel.html/https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2020/07/ross-rachel-break-friendshttps://screenrant.com/friends-best-couple-comparison-ross-rachel-monica-chandler/https://www.thethings.com/friends-ross-rachel-relationship-toxic-perfect/

The Original Sims
ROSEBUD. *cha-ching sound* *windfall of cash in your account*If only life was like the original The Sims when it was released in 2000. Right? You could pull a cheat code out of thin air and give yourself an influx of cash to build the house of your dreams and go on a ton of cool vacations. You could stand in front of your dresser and magically swap outfits. You could paint, read, play chess, work out. As a Sim, you could live easy.But it wasn’t all rosy to be a Sim - the Grim Reaper was always lurking, burglars could steal your stuff, you could set your kitchen on fire… No matter what happened to your Sims, the game was one of the first instances of that 90s-kid-epiphany that you had to be responsible for yourself and others or things could go sideways fast. Join me with my sister Sam from SimpsontheGo as we discuss the original The Sims, the gameplay, the expansion packs, and the legacy. And let us know who you made as your spouse (a celebrity or real-life crush?) when you made yourself in the game.SimpsontheGo Instagram: @simpsonthego YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/simpsonthegoSOURCES “The Sims Made Me Realize I'm Ready for More in Life,”  Wired.com, February 2021 https://www.wired.com/story/sims-game-psychology/“The Sims 1: Every Original Expansion Pack, Ranked,” TheGamer.com, Jun 2019 https://www.thegamer.com/the-sims-original-expansion-packs-ranked/“The Original “The Sims” Was Inherently Dark and Kind of Creepy,” Medium.com, July 2014 https://medium.com/@julialynnrubin/the-original-the-sims-was-inherently-dark-and-kind-of-creepy-2a0ba631f5a7“The Sims: Weird objects from the original game,” Extratime.media, October 2020 https://extratime.media/2020/10/19/the-sims-weird-objects-from-the-original-game/“Why The Original Sims Game is Still the BEst in the Series,” Cultured Vultures, September 2017 https://culturedvultures.com/original-sims-still-best/“How The Sims navigated 20 years of change to become one of the most successful franchises ever, Washington Post, February 2020 https://www.washingtonpost.com/video-games/2020/02/04/how-sims-navigated-20-years-change-become-one-most-successful-franchises-ever/“31 things all original The Sims players will know all too well,” Metro News UK, June 2014 https://metro.co.uk/2014/06/08/31-things-all-original-the-sims-players-will-know-all-too-well-4754027/“The Sims, Then and Now,” Bustle, September 2014 https://www.bustle.com/articles/38755-the-sims-then-and-now-your-comprehensive-guide-photos
Monica Lewinsky

Monica Lewinsky
In 1995, a bright, beautiful, motivated 22-year-old woman named Monica Lewinsky fell in love with the wrong man and suffered a heartbreak you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. Who hasn’t? Although for Monica, the wrong man was the President of the United States, and her heartbreak played out for the world to witness, sending her into a deep depressive spiral that she almost didn’t survive.Fast forward to 2021, after years of therapy and deep healing work, she is now a major force in the activism against cyberbullying. Through her work and others', the tides of public humiliation have shifted since 2014, and she has since pivoted to become a major advocate of the #MeToo movement focusing on uncovering abuses of power in so-called consensual relationships. And she's a badass at it.Join me (by myself) as I explore her story in the 90s and the legacy of her status as “patient zero” of cyberbullying. And after you listen, raise a glass of your sparkliest bubbly to this sparkly human, whose presence brings solidarity and comfort to so many femmes/women today.CW: This episode contains depictions of shame, depression, suicidal thoughts, PTSD, sexual assault, power abuse,  and sexual harassment.Sources“The president has a girlfriend”: Linda Tripp’s betrayal of Monica Lewinsky and the taped phone calls,” ABCNews, January 2019: https://abcnews.go.com/US/president-girlfriend-linda-tripps-betrayal-monica-lewinsky-taped/story?id=59865969Monica Lewinsky: Emerging from the House of Gaslight in the age of MeToo,” Vanity Fair, March 2018: https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/02/monica-lewinsky-in-the-age-of-metoo“Clinton Whistleblower Linda Tripp dies at 70, Monica Lewinsky Reacts to her Illness,” Refinery 29, April 2020 https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2020/04/9669757/monica-lewinsky-linda-tripp-death-cancer-twitter“Amid a new impeachment drama, onica Lewinsky works to rewrite her story, Boston Globe, February 2020 https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/02/04/metro/amid-new-impeachment-drama-monica-lewinsky-works-rewrite-her-story/“The Price of Shame,” Monica Lewinsky - Ted Talk, March 2015https://www.ted.com/talks/monica_lewinsky_the_price_of_shame?language=en
Shagadelic, Baby: Austin Powers

Shagadelic, Baby: Austin Powers
There is nothing more instantly recognizable from the 90s than Austin Powers. From the late 90s to the early 00s, Mike Myers and crew took us on a shagadelic ride from the Swingin’ 60s London to a “time where greed and corruption ruled again” (the 90s). With bad teeth, velour suits, and a free love worldview, Myers burned his classic groovy persona into our brains (along with the villainous Dr. Evil, of course). They are hands down still some of our all-time favorite movies and characters from the 90s. But do they hold up today?Join Eric and me as we hop into a groovy 1999 New Beetle and head to the colorful, fuzzy, love-filled world of Austin Danger Powers and reminisce about the franchise that taught American 90s kids what the word “shag” means. So pour a martini (shaken, not stirred) and hop in - and don’t you dare lose your mojo along the way.Warning, contains spoilers!Sources“Does Austin Powers Hold Up?” GQ, April 2018, https://www.gq.com/story/does-austin-powers-hold-up“Austin Powers at 20: Mike Myers, Jay Roach, More Spill Secrets in Shagadelic Oral History,” Hollywood Reporter, April 2017: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/austin-powers-definitive-oral-history-mike-myers-jay-roach-more-reveal-secrets-997139“Austin Powers: All 3 Movies Ranked from Worst to Best,” Screenrant, September 2020 https://screenrant.com/austin-powers-movies-ranked-worst-best/“Austin Power Still Haunts the James Bond Franchise, The Ringer, April 2020 https://www.theringer.com/movies/2020/4/30/21241822/austin-powers-james-bond-camp“Here’s Where the Jaguar E-Type from Austin Powers Is Now” , Hotcars.com, October 2020 https://www.hotcars.com/heres-where-the-jaguar-e-type-from-austin-powers-is-now/“The Criterion Channel Presents The Legendary Director Peter Bogdanovich on the Lasting Influence of Austin Powers in Goldmember,” The New Yorker, August 2020 https://www.newyorker.com/humor/daily-shouts/the-criterion-channel-presents-the-legendary-director-peter-bogdanovich-on-the-lasting-influence-of-austin-powers-in-goldmember
