The Cult of Trump

Dr. Janja Lahlich is an expert on the sociology of cults. In fact, she once belonged to one. This week we examine why people join cults; and ask if those who stormed the Capitol in the name of Trump qualify as cult followers. 

What About the Children?

This week we are joined by special guest, Dr. Jennifer Hartstein; a child, adolescent and family psychologist, and contributor to the Today Show and Dr. Oz. How do we talk to our children about this crazy and tumultuous time? Dr. Jen offers advice from helping small children label their emotions, to limiting exposure to news. 

The S&!T Show

After President Trump incited a mob yesterday in DC, the Loud Women just needed to talk it out: the violence, the white privilege, the rage and embarrassment we feel as Americans. Sometimes you just need to let those F words fly.
