Show Notes

Lenya and Alexandra are back on their own again to focus on getting deep and gritty and talk about boobs, what their mothers never told them, and more. They discuss how sports bras, and bras in general, never fit right, either too big or too small, and if you want them to match your outfit, good luck. They both talk about when they first got their boobs, how their boobs affected them and the other girls around them in school, and how they have grown through the years. If you have boobs, come for the commiseration and to hear other stories about how difficult boobs can be. If you don’t have boobs, you need to listen to understand and get the full story about how difficult and othering and ostracizing boobs can be. This is stuff your mother never told you. -- Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.

They also discuss their 2021 goals and vow to hold one another accountable. What are your goals for 2021?

A Plan To End Racism with Lenya's neighbor JC, Part 2

We continue this excellent conversation with JC, Lenya’s neighbor and fan of the show.   JC recommends the HBO documentary [Exterminate all the Brutes](https://www.hbo.com/exterminate-all-the-brutes) but warns it is not an easy watch about all the ways we still have slavery in this country.   The conversation spans a wide breadth of topics including the housing costs of LA County, to how a middle class person can afford housing, to religion as a salve for the sting of impending death.   Reach out and tell us if you want a Women Bridging The Gap TikTok, where we can engage further on conversations about Race and Womanhood.
