Throwing Shade #375 January 23, 2019

Erin shares early Martha Stewart recipes for your next 175-person sit-down country luncheon on this week’s Throwing Shade! We’ll hear about the expanding field of Democratic presidential candidates and what new ideas are being brought into the conversation. Then we’ll meet Imke Wübbenhorst, the first female coach of a men’s soccer team in Germany, as Erin details the sexism Imke has had to battle since taking her position in the league. Later, Bryan reviews the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the transgender military ban before shining a light on the nightmarish plight of gay and queer people in Chechnya.
