Part 3, of our #MeToo series, is a discussion between our hosts about what they have gathered from talking to women about the movement. Kyler states that his interview gave him an understanding of the issue that he could never have understood before. They agree that their conversations instilled that this problem is a cultural reckoning that has seeped into greater issues of power, morality and gender roles. Listen in as they break down what their guests agreed upon and how they saw the issue slightly differently.

Kyler interviews Wendi Seger, a local restaurateur and business consultant in the small town of Alamosa, Colorado. Wendi shares how personal experiences led her to join the many women exclaiming #metoo on facebook. The reaction she received on social media and in the local beauty shop surprised her a little. This moment of national discussion has made her want to grow the conversation in her community and hopefully that starts now by speaking on the pod.
The siblings try to unpack the #metoo movement that has gripped the nation for the last four months. Each sat down with some local women to listen to what they thought about the moment and how the energy behind it has informed their thoughts on sexual harassment.
In Part 1, Jessica asks her book club, which is comprised of four professional women from a variety of fields (tech, sales and education), to share their experiences with harassment and if the movement has struck a cord. Please excuse the clinking glasses. As with most book clubs, there’s always wine.
After their pilot podcast, Jessica and Kyler are back to debate what ended up being in the 2017 Tax Bill. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was actually finalized in conference, passed through Congress, and signed by the President. The siblings talk about what surprises were put in and left out.
