Talent Crush

There are women who light us up with all that they are and all that they have accomplished. This is where you get to crush out with us.

Wine Country

Wine Country on Netflix is a movie about how women grow up together and in the process sort of grow into each other. No one is perfect. We’re all irritating and irritated. We overreact to things that don’t matter and underreact to things that are majorly important. But when we figure out what we’ve done, and if we are lucky, our friends will be there to help us figure out how to reset out trajectories and get ourselves set on new, hopefully better paths.

Tina Fey

Older son once wrote on his Instagram profile, “I’m not real sure what goes here but Tina Fey, if you are reading this, I love you.” And I couldn’t have agreed with him more. Read more

RBG

Please God, let this woman live forever.

Amen.

All the Moms

We see you working. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, we know you are doing your best.  Read more

Alice Bowman

What do you do if your spacecraft is 10 days away from Pluto and reboots itself, dumping all the computer code needed to perform the experiments scientists have spent the past ten years crafting? Read more

Nina Simone

If you think you have never heard Nina Simone’s version of ‘Sinnerman’ then listen here and you will probably say, “Oh, I have heard this in tons of movies and TV shows.” And then you will probably listen to the entire song because it is beautiful.

Go ahead, I’ll wait. Read more

The Honorable Richard E. Neal

We are breaking with our custom of featuring female talent crushes because this guy just asked the IRS to cough up Trump’s tax returns. Onward Honorable Politician I had never heard of until last week!

We have included a link to the letter, just in case you wanted to read what the legal version of “no matter how long it takes, we will get the truth out of you even if it’s the last thing we ever do” looks like.

Tiffany Haddish

The first time I ever heard of Tiffany Haddish I was “borrowing” someone else’s Showtime and I saw her comedy special.

Mesmerizing. Was she funny? Yes. She was also wholly present, inhabiting every square inch of her body. Haddish has so much charisma it shimmers off of her and lights up everything around her. Read more

Marie Kondo

Marie Kondo is our Talent Crush. I can practically hear you rolling your eyes. Stop it and keep reading. Since Netflix scheduled one of the most brilliant release dates for a TV show in the history of TV by debuting Tidying Up on New Year’s Day, people all over the world have been cuddling their sweatshirts close to their chests and whispering to themselves, “Does this Fred Flintstone hoodie bring me joy?”

In case you aren’t sure, the answer is a blanket and resounding ‘no.’ Get rid of it, it’s stupid. Read more

Sen. Martha McSally

Sen. McSally (R-AZ) need never have said a word about the sexual assault. But some people show up for their compatriots above and beyond the call of duty. Here is a link to her comments, it’s only 2 minutes, please watch.
