Dame It All To Hell chat


Two professional women, one a Democrat the other Republican, find common ground over misogyny and sexism in the chaotic world of modern American society. Join Tracy Dietz and Kelly Gibson as they drink wine, share stories, and contemplate the best ways to deal with the asshats and douchebags they encounter every day.



Babywearing for the Win! (Nov 16th, 2018)

Kelly is freezing this week in North Dakota while Tracy enjoys a beer (not wine? Gasp!). The Dames get along and agree when discussing Michelle Obama’s new memoir, Becoming, and they ask, “Did Michelle Obama’s fashion style pave the way for future first ladies?”

Tracy reveals that she once wore her daughter to a business conference when the Dames discuss a meteorologist who her weather report while babywearing. Babywearing for the working mama win!

In the segment now known as The Button! a Toky...


2018 Midterm Election Wrap-up (Nov 9th, 2018)

The Dames are suffering from post-election exhaustion but are really excited about the historic number of women elected to Congress, Governor, and other high-level positions all across the country. Congratulations women!

Everything isn't rosy, however, as a new report out of the UK shows that sexism in the workplace is worse than previously thought. Worse still, 28% of women considered women to be less qualified for leadership roles than men (along with 45% of men). Tracy and Kelly consider th...


Let's Talk About Sex, Baby (Nov 2nd, 2018)

This week the Dames jump right in and discuss a new survey about sex that shows Democrats and Republicans don't just disagree about politics, they have very different sexual fantasies. The results are not what they expected. Spoiler: Both Dems AND Repubs fantasize about sex with Bill Clinton. Waah?

Tracy treats Kelly nicely by bringing in the white wine...which isn't all that good...as they commiserate over a Chicago Cubs shirt Tracy bought her daughter that apparently offender classmates. Nei...


Supercalifragilistic-KISS-MY-ASS-adocious! (Oct 26th, 2018)

Just two weeks from the midterm elections and the President has called Stormy Daniels "horseface". Tracy and Kelly talk about Carly Fiorina's recent column calling the statement disrespectful but pointing out that women have bigger problems. Then they stop to enjoy some Worthy Cabernet Sauvignon.

In the new segment, "Google News Button," they talk about Rachel Hundley, a Sonoma, California City Councilwoman who was slut-shamed for her actions as the appointed mayor. Then things get really craz...


Confidently Strong and Comfortably Soft (Oct 19th, 2018)

Should people be pushing societal boundaries or are traditional roles okay? Tracy and Kelly disagree...unsurprisingly. This week's episode is brought to you by googling "sexism" and clicking the "News" tab. That leads to a hilarious conversation about "man size Kleenex" and "The Gentleman's Sandwich".

In politics (and Crazy Shit People Say), Kelly takes issue with North Dakota's GOP Senate candidate Kevin Cramer's characterization of #MeToo is a “movement toward victimization,” and Tracy does ...


Science Says We Have To Be Friends (Oct 12th, 2018)

After a few weeks of the emotional rollercoaster dealing with challenges to women's role in our country's future, Tracy and Kelly spend this episode enjoying being friends, because science.

Did you know that science says women get actual hormonal benefits from their girlfriends, and that women who swear are more loyal and trustworthy? Friends can even make you less likely to catch a cold.
This is one of the happiest, funniest episodes the Dames have ever done. We hope it makes you happy, too!



Men are Scared? Welcome to Our World. (Oct 5th, 2018)

Tracy on the road and, sadly, doesn't get to drink wine with Kelly and Richard. Apparently, coconut milk coffee isn't the same.

The national conversation about Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation has changed from why it's important to believe women who experience sexual assault to why it's important to protect men from false accusers. Seriously, what the fuck?

Tracy points out that just 28% of rape and sexual assault are committed by strangers, so maybe women should stop being so afraid of walking t...


Who stays quiet 35 years? F*cking everyone! (Sep 25th, 2018)

It's all so fucking heavy, so let's start "drinking with the wine"! Maybe not the best wine this time...but one of the best episodes EVER.

The Dames get right into it and agree that Brett Kavanaugh was a complete douchebag when he got drunk as a teenager, and spend some time considering how rape culture starts really early in people's lives. Tracy points out that no one asks why men rape, just why women did whatever they did., and wonders whether good men realize how many of their female frien...


Supreme Justice and Yeti Pubes (Sep 21st, 2018)

It's all about Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford but we throw in a little Stormy Daniels tell-all just for fun. Also, more Pinot Noir!

Sports & Entertainment at 7am (Sep 14th, 2018)

Did Serena Williams lose the U.S. Women's Open Final to Naomi Osaka because of sexism or bad sportsmanship? The Dames do not agree. Does Asshat Leslie Moonves, former CEO of CBS, deserve a $1.2 million severance package? The Dames most certainly agree. Sadly, this was recorded too early in the morning for wine-tasting, so maybe we'll do whiskey shots next week.

Tracy is a Gemini and Kelly Loves a Bagel (Sep 7th, 2018)

Feels like home, with everyone back in the studio for a hosty good exploration of gendered language, tweets for the ladies, and Louis CK's "comeback". All that and two very different Sauvignon Blancs in this week's cerebral, silly, awesome episode!

You Suck, Indiana (Aug 24th, 2018)

The Dames welcome the amazing Domonique James, founder of Politics With Purpose and board member of College to Congress, to drink chewy red wine and talk about how sexism impacts women's lives even when they don't necessarily see it. They dig into a new economic study that suggests attitudes toward a woman where she grows up have a lasting impact on how financially successful she as an adult.

Dirty, Dirty Pinot Noir (Aug 17th, 2018)

In this lively episode, Tracy hears the dumbest f#cking things she's ever heard several times. Kelly quizzes Tracy on wine geography and Tracy demands bigger pours.
Omarosa may be a badass, but how the hell did she get into the Situation Room?
Millennials may think feminism has already won. Kelly, who calls herself a millennial, disagrees.
Is giving no f#cks really an art? Maybe only to millennials.
Spiderman doesn't look that good in a thong, and French women are tired of postcards that imply ev...


WTF is "Benevolent Sexism"? (Aug 10th, 2018)

Tracy and Kelly learn some new vocabulary: Benevolent Sexism (BS, for real) is “an affectionate but patronizing attitude that treats women as needing men’s help, protection, and provision (i.e., as being more like children than adults).”

New research says heterosexual women prefer benevolently sexist men. Does BS cause men to challenge WNBA players to one-on-one contests, or lead voters to reject women who run for governor? Tune in to find out!

Women Win with Michael Steele (Aug 3rd, 2018)

Tracy and Kelly chat with Michael about is new barbershop-inspired podcast, Man of Steele, and have a lively discussion about the challenges facing the Republican and Democratic parties in 2018 and 2020. His thoughts on the women's greatest challenge are refreshing and inspiring.

"Nanny Diaries" Co-author Nicola Kraus! (Jul 20th, 2018)

Tracy and Kelly are joined by New York Times best-selling author Nicola Kraus, who talks about some of the surprising things she learned while researching "The First Affair", a novel based on Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton (co-authored with Emma McLaughlin). Some of it may surprise you; according to Nicola, only one pundit defended Lewinsky at the time. Can you guess who? Listen to find out!

Joking About #MeToo Is Not Okay (Jul 13th, 2018)

Why do people think it's okay to make jokes about the #MeToo movement? In this highly charged episode, Tracy and Kelly call out the Miss Massachusetts pageant for mocking the #MeToo movement on stage and grant contestant Maude Gorman "Dame" status for giving up her Miss Plymouth County title in protest.

It wasn't just pageants that made fun of the movement, however. President Trump, while again teasing Senator Elizabeth Warren about her Native American ancestry, mocked "the Me Too generation" ...


Farts Are Funny (Jul 6th, 2018)

East Coast meets West Coast as Tracy and Kelly welcome Kaiya Waddell of Facebook to the show to discuss the similarities for women in politics and women in tech. Kaiya also joins the Dames for this week's Stupid Shit People Say for a little World Cup misogyny.

Then things take a turn to middle school humor as the Dames discuss the Fair And Reciprocal Trade Act, a leaked draft of new proposed legislation blowing out of The White House, and ponder just how much the President's staff must hate hi...


Happy Happy Joy Joy (Jun 29th, 2018)

With all the stress in the world today, the Dames take some time to talk about happiness. Frieda Edgette continues her conversation with Tracy and Kelly about the things we all can do to stay balanced and positive, even if you work in politics.

Frieda is the driving force behind Courage To Run, the nation’s first nonpartisan run and walk that celebrates the rising wave of women getting civically active and running for office. Frieda talks to the Dames about how the run can elevate the mindset...
