Bolton, Brexit, Black Girls Rock and Battling Loneliness

NewBeforeTheWar2

This week, Karleigh and Dawn tackle the B side of the news: Bolton, Brexit, BET’s BlackGirlsRock controversy and battling loneliness.

John Bolton resigned Tuesday as President Trump’s National Security Advisor. Britain’s parliament was suspended Tuesday as the Brexit whirlwind spins the U.K. and the European Union into a frenzy, and actress and advocate Angelica Ross of FX’s “Pose” called out BET for excluding trans women of color from its Black Girls Rock program.

All those topics plus Dawn and Karleigh’s tips on how to combat loneliness, in this week’s podcast.

We talked so much about sports last week, we focused our entire episode on other things! Like… President Trump fired John Bolton on Tuesday. Read all about it here.

The latest on the Brexit controversy, as reported by CNN, can be found here.
