Guests
Justin Silver, Comedian and Author of The Language of Dogs
Kristen Hartley, Dog Rescue Activist, Pit Bull Advocate and Producer 
Noah Odabashian, Producer and Dog Lover 
 
Justin, Kristen and Noah make a pit stop at Vicky's Pitty Party. Pit Bull media bias is the pits. They discuss Breed Specific Legislation, every decade's "Dog to Hate," and Vicky reads headlines about Golden Retrievers versus Pit Bulls. Justin maintains that there are no breed-specific behaviors, and the group puts him to the test. Noah knows the facts about pit bulls, but is still weary to get one for his family. Justin tries to bring him to the good side and won't give up until Noah see the light. Kristen and Vicky judge chihuahuas. All this and more on She's Got Issues!

Episode 3 - Attacking Sharks
49:35
Guests
Frank Quevedo, Executive Director, South Fork Natural History Museum
Ryan Hoffman, Diver and Filmmaker
Sherry Davey, Comedian and Writer

Sharks are the managers of our healthy oceans but human beings are killing about 100 million sharks per year. Frank, Ryan and Vicky try to convince Sherry that sharks don't care about her and don't want to kill her...to no avail. Frank talks about the shark species' vital role to our ecosystem. Vicky and Jay Nog discuss their experience swimming with shark in eco-travel. The panel agrees that the movie JAWS set sharks WAY back. Frank tells the group about SOFO's new initiative catching and tagging Great White juveniles with the help of OCEARCH and the incredible revelations they've made about Great Whites. Sharks take 15-20 years to be reproductively mature - even longer than humans. Sherry cracks jokes to cope with her fear. All this and more on She's Got Issues!

57:16
Guests:
Erin Brockovich  - Consumer Advocate, Activist 
Annie Feighery - Founder, mWater
Aaron Ring - Comedian, Writer
 
Annie and Aaron are back to talk about domestic drinking water. Vicky learns how pipes work (kind of) and Annie breaks down what happened in Flint and who discovered the Flint water crisis first! Aaron confesses that he doesn't filter his water and Vicky thinks to ask if tap water in New York City is okay to drink, after living there for 17 years and drinking it every day. Erin Brockovich joins for an energizing and illuminating talk about Florida's environmental crisis, water contamination all over the U.S., and how she and her partner Bob helped a group of women in Hannibal, Missouri get ammonia-free water for their region. Can you guess what they did? All this and more on She's Got Issues!

Episode 1 - There's Something in the Water: Part I
39:59
Guests:
Annie Feighery - Founder, mWater
Aaron Ring - Comedian, Writer
Heather Arney - Water.org 
 
We will be DROWNING in water episodes on this podcast (see what I did there)? But first, let's tap into something (I can't stop) we can't live without - drinking water. Annie Feighery, the founder of mWater, talks Vicky off the ledge about the ominous last title card from "The Big Short" about Michael Burry's next investment. Annie's software platform is being used by the country of Malawi to manage their entire water system, which leaves Vicky and Aaron questioning their contributions to the world. Annie tells the group what the biggest threat to drinking water is on a global level and why Barbie Savior Syndrome is not great for charity. Comedian Aaron Ring refreshes everyone (oops, I did it again) with his one-liners. Heather Arney makes Vicky realize how lucky someone is if they're born with a toilet and tap in their home. They talk about the daily water crisis people in developing countries face, particularly women and girls. Water.org has helped 16 million people get access to clean water. Can you guess how? All this and more on She's Got Issues!
