Cancel All Student Debt w/ Seth Frotman
Play episode · 47 min

Why can’t we just cancel all student loan debt? The Department of Education could do it right now. But they don’t. Seth Frotman, the executive director of the Student Borrower Protection Center, comes on the show to talk about the 45 million Americans who get a student loan bill every month. Why won't the federal government just take this financial burden off its people? Plus, how the government has completely bungled helping those with student loans during a global pandemic. We absolutely can cancel all student loan debt. And we should.

Kirsten Gillibrand
Today on Work In Progress, Sophia is joined by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (@kirstengillibrand). Senator Gillibrand is a lawyer and politician from New York who's served in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Senator Gillibrand entered the world of politics in 2006 after winning a House of Representatives seat as a Democrat in a traditionally Republican region. She went on to fill the U.S. Senate seat in 2009 after being appointed by then New York Governor David Peterson and in 2010, Senator Gillibrand won reelection in a special vote, thus becoming the youngest elected member of the Senate at age 43. Throughout her time in the Senate, Senator Gillibrand has led some of the toughest fights in Washington - she has been a major supporter of gay rights, advocating for same-sex marriage and the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, she has worked tirelessly for women's rights, improved healthcare benefits for 9/11 workers, and served on the Senate Agricultural Committee to fight against food stamp reductions to protect America’s families - and that’s just to name a few of the fights that she has taken on for all of us.On today’s episode of Work in Progress, Sophia and Senator Gillibrand discuss Senator Gillibrand’s childhood and the impact that her mother and grandmother had on her career and her propensity to lead, the range of issues that she has taken on in the Senate, the ongoing pandemic, what it’ll take to get real COVID-19 relief, the upcoming Presidential election...and so, SO much more.

The man was truly scorching hot. Everything about him was sexy, from the way his tailored tuxedo draped his tapered torso, to the steely look in his eyes. And that continued when I saw his car.The thing looked like it should be in the Indy 500. It was a race car, but with every luxury possible. Not only did the doors lift into the air like an eagle about to take off, but the inside lit up like a leather-covered spaceship.“There are only two seats,” I pointed out staring in.“Is that a problem?” Fury asked not slowing down.“It’s just that there’s three of us.”“I think we can figure out how to make three work.”I gave Fury a second look wondering what exactly he was talking about. There were three of us heading back to his place. Was he planning on making that work, too?I got into the low bucket seats and couldn’t figure out how to close the door.“Let me,” he said sliding his hand across my lap and touching a button next to my leg.God, did I like that. He didn’t know it, but he was shooting sparks near kindling. My crotch burned like it would catch on fire. And then, when we pulled up to the front of the building and Duke and I switched places and I sat on his lap, I could barely contain myself.If I hadn’t been drinking all night on an empty stomach, I might have given some thought to the fact that I wasn’t a small girl and I was sitting on Duke’s lap. I had, though, so the only thing on my mind was what the hard thing was I was sitting on.I would love to think that Duke’s excitement was for me, but I remembered what Penelope had said. She had said that Duke couldn’t see past his overwhelming feelings for his long time best friend. I probably could have been the hottest girl in the world, and it wouldn’t move him at all.With the rumbling of the engine creating a sound barrier between the two seats, I leaned back and whispered into Duke’s ear.“Fury told me something when we were walking to the car. He said he wanted you. Did you know that?”As soon as I said it, I felt the hard thing that was pressed against my thigh, move. Yep, that was Duke I felt. Duke didn’t even try to hide it.“He said he wanted to strip you naked and make you groan,” I told him feeling him flinch again. “Would you like that? Do you want him to do that?”Duke didn’t answer. Nor did he look at either of us. But his desire was clear. With my lips still by his ear, I allowed the heat from my breath to build up. My world was spinning and I wasn’t sure it was from the alcohol.I wanted to kiss him so badly my heart hurt. So, when the car slowed and we pulled up to a sprawling Mediterranean mansion, I heard a snapping noise. If I was wearing a bra, I would have thought it was that. But what it turned out to be was my last bit of self-restraint slipping out of my hands.Unable to stop myself, I rocked back and forth against his lap. I wanted it to touch me there, but it didn’t get a chance.“We’re here,” Fury said settling my hips.I didn’t want to move, but I knew I had to. I had set something into motion and it was time to let it play out in front of me.“You might need to get the door,” I told Fury while reaching back for Duke’s hand preventing him from moving.“Of course.”Fury sprung out of his seat and rushed around the car. The lights from the gorgeous home lit more than just his way. As he crossed in front of the hood, it lit up his thin tuxedo pants that left nothing to the imagination. Fury was as excited as Duke was and I could see a perfect outline of him. The man was incredibly big.Did Duke know what he was in for? He must have known, right? They played high school football together. They had to have seen each other naked.With that thought in mind, my head again swooned. After Fury opened the gull-wing doors and helped me out, I never let go of his hand. And when Duke exited and joined us, I took his hand leading them both to the front door.Click here to get it now - https://amzn.to/357pQtA ***** Discount Code: StaySafe15 Bisexual Socks & T-shirts (Teespring): http://bit.ly/37ewzBZ Support the channel with Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/bisexualrealtalk Merch & Books: Bisexual Face Masks & Sweatshirts & T-shirts (Teespring): http://bit.ly/37ewzBZ Lapel pins & Pop Sockets (Amazon): https://amzn.to/2sygV4N My Bisexual Romance Audiobooks: http://bit.ly/37PqKeP My Bisexual Romance eBooks: http://bit.ly/37Ra5ra Relationship Satisfaction Research - https://bit.ly/3j7O2RE YouTube Channel: http://bit.ly/1KpMviS My Instagram: http://bit.ly/2n8JvCR Official website: http://www.BisexualsAreCooler.com Twitter: @BisexRealTalk Instagram: http://bit.ly/2n8JvCR Want advice about being bisexual?

WORDAFUL with Liz Hernandez - Ep 022
Click here for full episode transcript. *Episode 22: Show Notes.* “Manifest the life that you want with the power of your words. When you raise your vibration with gentle words and encouraging thoughts, positive changes occur.”  This is what the landing page of the WORDAFUL Community website says, and today’s episode is all about the power of words. Today’s guest is Liz Hernandez, a Mexican American Emmy-nominated television personality and journalist, and the founder of WORDAFUL.  Liz grew up in San Diego as a self-described radio nerd, with parents who always taught her about the power of words. Years later, Liz became the co-host of one of the most popular shows on one of the biggest radio stations in Southern California, which led to a series of other very prominent hosting positions on channels like MTV and Access Hollywood.  Then, her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Liz took some time off from hosting to help care for her mom. Just before she passed, Liz's mom lost 95% of her speech, but her positive spirit and limited speech inspired Liz to gain a new appreciation for the power of everyday words and the lessons that they can teach us.  Liz started WORDAFUL, a company that has grown into a thriving community with a large online presence. In this episode, Liz shares a bit about her process, starting with how she grew up, how she landed a coveted position at Power 106, and why the word ‘Canada’ has a special significance for her.  Of course, she also shares how she found her way to creating WORDAFUL and all of the obstacles she had to overcome along the way.
