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.
For their pilot podcast Jessica and Kyler seek to find out what people think about the tax bill the Republicans are pushing through Congress. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that taxes are super confusing and no one really knows what is in the bill. Jessica speaks with Kara Krasnoff, a California tax preparer, on the proposed changes to the tax code. Kara describes these changes as drastic. Then Kyler sits down with Grant Mattive, whose family operates a potato packing operation and farm. Together they mull over what the new tax bill would mean for business owners. It seems that both parties are in agreement that the new plan will not improve our tax system or help middle class families. Take a listen.
A brother and sister find themselves living in two different bubbles – one in rural conservative Colorado and the other in liberal urban Los Angeles. Join these two as they talk about current issues that pop up in the news with their local friends and neighbors. Together they try to find common ground among these groups who might have more in common than they think.
