Each new year serves up a new season of empty weight-loss promises and pressure to size down. But what if we could detox from diet culture and claim our space instead? In this first episode of a two-part series, Cristen and Caroline head to America's body-shaming capital, Hollywood, where actor Joy Nash is breaking the rules of what a leading lady looks like in TV's 'Dietland.'

36. How to #FreeTheVibrator
Y'all, we are on a mission to #FreeTheVibrator from society's ladylike hangups. Because even though women founders, designers, and engineers are increasingly claiming their space in today’s booming, $15-billion sex toy and sextech industries, the biz behind the buzz is an obstacle course of prudery, sexual double standards, and whole lotta dicks.

35. How to Find a Lesbian Bar
Did you know that San Francisco, aka America’s queer capital, is currently home to ZERO bars exclusively for queer women? Ditto for Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, New Orleans, and a growing number of cities around the country. So why have lesbian bars become an endangered nightlife species? Caroline and Cristen explore their complex cocktail of historical and cultural impacts and hear from y'all about what it means for communities when these near-and-dear, queer watering holes dry up.

34. How to Slam Dunk
To dunk or not to dunk? For women's basketball, this has long been the question. It’s the ‘wow factor’ that WNBA haters often point to as proof that the women's game doesn't deserve the fandom, fame and fortune that the guys get. But will more women bringing the slams settle the score? And, uh, how do you slam dunk anyway? Cristen and Caroline talk to dunking superstars past and present to sort through the courtside gender politics of stuffing the net. In need of an Unladylike Pep Talk?
