Episode 200 - with Damian Bellino
Much like a fine wine - Ramona Pinot G, to be exact - Andy's Girls has grown better with time. Sarah celebrates AG's 200th ep with the Kim to her Kyle, Red to her Skinnygirl, and Kim D to her Kim G, Damian Bellino (co-host, "You Might Know Her From," senior producer at VH!, and OG of the AG). They discuss the weaponization of shame in the Bravosphere, whether analogies can ever fully translate on reality tv, and the impact of Lisa fighting Jen's battle, seemingly alone. The initial audio file for this ep may have been morally corrupt, but luckily Sarah wrestled a redo away from Danielle - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 200!

SATCHEL OF SOCIAL GOOD: HELP TEXANS RECOVER FROM THE WINTER DISASTER
1. Perhaps one of the best ways to offer aid is by donating to a mutual aid fund. These grassroots organizations allow neighbors to support each other based on their individual needs. You can donate to Mutual Aid Houston, DFW Mutual Aid, Austin Mutual Aid, Para Mi Gente, Feed the People DTX, Trinity Mutual Aid, and many more across the state.
2. In you’re in the Houston area, you can donate or sign up to volunteer with Kids’ Meals Inc., an organization that provides meals to hungry kids year-round. In Austin, pipes burst in two of the cottages for the children’s shelter at the SAFE Alliance, and the organization is in need of funds and supplies such as drinking water, nonperishable food, and wipes. https://give.kidsmealsinc.org and https://www.safeaustin.org
3. Incarcerated people, whether in prisons, jails, or immigrant detention centers, are freezing through the winter storm, as many have been stuck in facilities with no electricity, decent food, or safe drinking water. You can donate to organizations such as the Texas Jail Project, a nonprofit organization raising funds for commissary and phone accounts of incarcerated people. The Texas Inmate Families Association, which supports the relatives of those behind bars, could also use your help. https://www.texasjailproject.org/donate/ and https://tifa.org/donate/#!form/Donate
4. Sea Turtle Inc., the South Padre Island nonprofit whose volunteers rescued 4,000 hypothermic turtles this week, could use your donation. Animal shelters and rescue groups across the state have also struggled to keep homeless critters warm and fed. Go to any local TX shelter’s Facebook page to see which items it needs, or make a donation online. https://seaturtleinc.org/shop/give/donations/
