What We're Listening To This Week- From podcasts to playlists, what's playing in Team Shondaland's earbuds.

January 31, 2018

"Cathartic, informative, and fucking fun is how I would describe Bag Ladiez, a podcast made by Bronx-born, Afro-Latina friends Estephanie and Lina. Their goal is to take on their own baggage and help us work through ours, because as they note in their show description, "That shit is heavy AF." Bag Ladiez covers current events ("Currento Eventos"), culture, relationships, self-improvement — basically all the topics you rant, rave, cry, and cackle about with your friends. It’s also worth a listen because Lina and Estephanie bring important, underrepresented perspectives to the podcasting world. That, and also because processing the absurdity and joy of life is often best done with funny friends, and laden with expletives." — Molly Savard at shondaland.com
