In this episode, the boys reveal a few more dates for the tour before Craig gives a recap on what it was like throwing out the first pitch at the Orioles game. After the break, the guys talk a little football before giving their feelings on the new season of Southern Charm so far. Austen and Craig talk and share what they have done to not let the drama affect them after each week. Lastly, the guys begin to answer some of the great bestie questions we have received.
What's up Bros? What a time to be a Philadelphian, Birds are 3-0 and the Phil's just clinched a spot in the playoffs AGAIN. Up first on the docket, we have to address a Taylor Swift- Travis Kelce update. While Steel points out that the alleged Eagles fan has changed her colors quickly, overall the boys are on board for this relationship. Do you think its for the cameras or is love in the air?? Then were back with the crew in Charleston and we get introduced to JT who is not our cup of tea. Rod however seems like a solid dude and we see romance in the air for Olivia. Taylor is now working for a mixed drink company and attempting to sell Day Chaser to Leva after quitting her job to follow Shep around... The main focus of this episode is Austen's relationship with Taylor. Clearly JT is in love with Taylor and uses every opportunity with Shep present to bring up how weird Austen and Taylors relationship is. He highlights that Taylor slept at Austen's house and it becomes quite clear that JT is in love with her. Shep "trusts" Austen but after the 10th comment from JT things get a little murky bro... The group takes notice as well as Craig points out that its inappropriate and Madison says she thinks Austen's in love with her... Then were off to RHONY and back to the phone drama. While we still agree this was a dumb prank, Erin's response is way too much claiming this to be the most attacked she's ever felt in her life... Meanwhile Ubah simply cannot let it go and we get our first clunker episode of the season. The entire episode is focused around this and it leads to all of the ladies joining forces against Erin and comes to a head in the hot tub in an uncomfortable scene in which Erin gets ambushed and fully ganged up on. However... as the ladies are pointing out time and time again in which Erin has talked some shit, its pretty clear that Erin is a shit-stirrer. Up til this point she really hasn't gotten much shit in return so while a lot of this is warranted, the approach was way too much. Ubah and Erin eventually are able to squash everything. Oh yeah, Jessel keeps lists on her phone of everyone and how she should've responded to them and Brynn continues her pursuit of Jenna Lyons... This episode is brought to you by Hello Fresh.

Whats up Bros?! We are back with Southern Charm this week, but first we discuss the recent news out of the OC. Shannon Beador got a DUI and we have some thoughts. Shooter and Steel have slightly differing opinions on the matter but at the end of the day, the important thing is thank god nobody got hurt. Then we're back in Charleston with our charming crew. Craig and Paige are in the same exact spot in their relationship as Craig seems ready to take all the next steps and Paige seems to not be on the same page... (no pun intended). Shep gets home from a trip around the world as he is working on getting over his relationship with Taylor. Meanwhile, Taylor and Olivia have gotten very close over their break-ups. Madison shows off her new beautiful family, and we here at the BravBro's couldn't be happier for her and Hudson as it seems like Brett is genuinely a good dude. Things heat up at the wedding after-party when Taylor lets emotions get the best of her and she goes after Craig for his role in covering up Shep's shenanigans. While Taylor has every right to feel scorned, Craig isn't the one that cheated on you. The cherry on top of the entire episode is Austen's awkward interactions with Madison and Brett, but it appears as though Austen is going to take center stage with Taylor as rumors are swirling about the two of them... Then were back in ANGWILLA which we now know how to pronounce finally. The ladies continue to try and get to the bottom of Jessel's backstory and Erin and Sai speculate that maybe Jessel is overplaying the difficult upbringing a little in order to relate to Brynn and Sai. We're not here to say Jessel had it easy but in comparison to what we heard from the other two women, it does seem as though she may be reaching a little bit. The episode centers around a "prank war" via Ubah and Erin and ends with one of the dumber pranks and altercations we've seen on Bravo. A phone was taken, which is a dumb prank, and it escalates to the point of Erin and Ubah screaming at each other the next day. But love may be in the air as Brynn attempts to woo Jenna and we are here for it. While we don't actually think they'll be getting together, its amazing to see Jenna have some fun, joke around and come out of her shell a bit more.

From ribbons, bonnets and ballgowns to Mr Darcy's see-through shirt, the works of Jane Austen have long sparked the imaginations of fashion-minded readers and audiences. But what did the author herself wear? Austen has often been accused of dowdiness, but as Hilary Davidson reveals, this was in fact far from the truth. She takes Lauren Good on a tour through the wardrobe of the renowned writer, from the clothes she wore behind closed doors to her most treasured jewellery. (Ad) Hilary Davidson is the author of Jane Austen's Wardrobe (Yale, 2023).

In the past century, few evangelical women have been more influential than Elisabeth Elliot. Lucy S. R. Austen has written a new biography called 'Elisabeth Elliot: A Life,' and we're delighted to have her on the podcast. How should we view her life and work? How do we make sense of her and Jim's roller coaster courtship? Why couldn't she and Rachel Saint get along? How did her ideas about womanhood, relationships, and God's calling develop over time? And what legacy does she leave for us today? (The conversation starts at 12:20) PLUS, in “Headlines” (1:10), Benjamin Quinn and Nathaniel Williams discuss conference realignment in college athletics. What is gained, and what is lost? And in “On My Bookshelf” (38:25), Ms. Austen recommends two books she's reading right now.

April Babcock, a resolute mother, has weathered the darkest storm a parent can endure. In the cruel grasp of 2019, she was forced to bid a heartbreaking farewell to her precious son, Austen, a victim of the sinister clutches of fentanyl poisoning. Her agony, however, did not cripple her spirit; it ignited an unquenchable fire within her soul. With unwavering determination, April Babcock's anguished heart transmuted into a relentless force of change. Her unyielding resolve manifested in bold actions as she fearlessly reached out to the corridors of power, demanding accountability from government officials. Her rallying cry echoed through the hallowed halls of authority, compelling them to confront the scourge of fentanyl poisoning head-on. Out of the ashes of her personal tragedy, April forged a rallying point for kindred spirits whose lives had been forever marred by this insidious peril. In founding the Lost Voices of Fentanyl (LVOF), she discovered a tapestry of shared sorrow and collective resilience. A grassroots nonprofit organization emerged, a phoenix of purpose and unity, composed of grieving families and concerned citizens united by a singular mission: to halt the epidemic of Illicit Fentanyl Poisoning and shatter its chains of devastation. As the sun rises on September 23, 2023, April Babcock's vision will crescendo in the heart of the nation's capital, Washington D.C. There, against the backdrop of the storied monuments, she will lead the charge in the third annual national rally—an unrelenting call to arms that will echo across the land. The rallying cry will pierce through the walls of indifference, a clarion demand that can no longer be silenced or ignored. Lost Voices of Fentanyl is not a mere collective of bereaved souls; it is a beacon of action, an agent of awareness, and a sentinel of prevention. It embarks on a formidable mission to expose the channels of supply, to unmask the enigmatic machinations of the CCP, to unveil the shadowy dealings of the Mexican Cartels, and to unflinchingly confront the harbingers of death: drug dealers and traffickers, modern-day serial executioners. A relentless spotlight is cast on the heart-wrenching scenes unfolding on American soil. The public must bear witness to the tragedy unfolding in our midst, a stark reminder of the urgent need for unassailable fortifications that shield the lives of our fellow citizens. The very fabric of the American promise is under siege, and the clarion call of Lost Voices of Fentanyl is a thunderous reminder that the guardians of our nation must rise to the occasion. LVOF is more than an organization; it's a symphony of resilience. It's a resolute movement that rejects the notion of being mere bystanders to sorrow. April Babcock and her compatriots embody a spirit that refuses to be shackled by grief alone. Instead, they wield it as a formidable weapon, an instrument of change, an unbreakable resolve to transform sorrow into strength. The echo of their impassioned voices will reverberate through the annals of history, a testament to the power of parents' love and anguish, catalyzing a nation to rise from the ashes of despair and forge a future free from the clutches of fentanyl's poison. The legacy of Lost Voices of Fentanyl is etched in the hearts of those who march alongside, an indomitable force demanding a safer, brighter, and more just world.

Austen touches on what he is doing as he waits out the storm and Craig shares his thanks to the USTA Foundation for putting him up in a box for the day and all that they do for the sport. The guys then dive into some pop culture as they discuss angry neighbors and how to handle internet trolls. Craig, Austen, and Nick then get into an argument over which holiday has the best candy and how little Craig created the no dogs allowed in the pool rule. Lastly, the boys close out by ranking some more of the "icks" that you all wrote in.
This week we are giving you something we are calling a "remix" episode. We have a new interview with former guest Mick Sullivan combined with some of his previous interview way back in 2019. Amy is traveling this week so we've reconnected with former guest Mick Sullivan, who is the curator of guest experience at the Frazier History Museum and is also the creator of the award winning children's history podcast, The Past and the Curious, which grew out of the stories he tells people at the museum. His quirky combo of humor and music keeps both kids and adults interested and sneaks in a little history in the process. The success of his podcast led to the publication of his first children's book, The Meat Shower, which is a fun telling of the historical event of meat falling from the sky in the 1800s. He has now published a book for older kids called I See Lincoln's Underpants: The Surprising Times Underwear (and the People Wearing Them) Made History. This episode is a little something new and something old. In this combo episode, we chat with Mick to see what he has been up to since his last book was published and you can also hear more about his first book which we discussed with him in the early days of the show in episode 27.

Summary: Summer is coming to a close and academia is back on our minds. Welcome to our fourth LoveFest, where Holly and Devin talk about Jane Austen for literally longer than they've ever spoken about anything on the podcast before. Born in 1775, Austen received a home-based education and began writing in her teens. Her novels were published anonymously during her short life; she died in 1817 at age 41 of what modern physicians believe to be Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Her six novels, though, have endured for centuries and are recognized especially for their wit, humor, and keen social commentary. Topics Discussed: Sense and Sensibility (13:09): Elinor and Marianne Dashwood teach the reader via their contrasting approaches to love that a successful romance requires both logic and passion; Holly's introduction to Austen and a mutual favorite Adaptations: 1995 film ft Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, and Harriet Walter. 2008 BBC Miniseries ft. Dan Stevens, Hattie Morahan and Charity Wakefield. Pride & Prejudice (25:53): This novel is the foundation of what we think of as a romance book and is still the template some 200+ years later; Lizzie Bennet is a heroine for the ages and Darcy one of the best romantic leads in all of literature. Adaptations: 1995 BBC Miniseries ft. Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. 2005 Joe Wright film ft. Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen Emma (39:43): Emma Woodhouse goes from playing matchmaking games and meddling in the lives of her friends and acquaintances to realizing she has to mature to earn the proper match of her own in this hilarious, witty novel; Mister Knightley is a favorite of both Holly and Devin.

Adaptations: Don't bother. Northanger Abbey (1:01:13): It's a teenage dream for the reader as we follow Catherine Morland through her summer in Bath as she discovers herself, the meaning of true and false friendships, and ultimately - love (with a side of melodrama and a “murder investigation”); Austen pokes fun at the Gothic novels so popular at the time. Adaptations: 2007 Northanger Abbey TV miniseries featuring Felicity Jones Persuasion (1:11:36): In her final work, we follow Austen's oldest protagonist (27, gasp!)

We delve into the wonderful world of Jane Austen reenactments with Robyn Gynne's, The Worst Darcy. Set in a small tourist town named Austen, the local inhabitants spend one month a year celebrating all things Jane A. This year, being the pinnacle of pieces, Pride and Prejudice, newly relocated town librarian and “Keaton's mom,” Vivian, feels that this is her opportunity to make a name for herself in the community by playing Lizzy. Metalhead and all around town ‘bad boy,' Brodie Bishop, is strong-armed into being her Darcy. When opposites attract, will these two deny the chemistry off stage, or will Vivian prove to be truly an “obstinate, headstrong girl” and choose to take a chance? Also discussed: Red, White, and Royal Blue, the corn song (how did Rae not know about it?), and an amazing Jane Austen festival in Bath.

In this episode, Craig and Austen are joined by bestie Jared Freid as he comes on to talk and share his new Netflix special, "37 and Single". The guys spend time laughing as Jared talks about life in New York versus his weekend in Charleston. They then share some of the good and the bad of fan encounters and why it is ok to just be a decent person instead of having to look "cool". Finally, the conversation finds its way to dating and all of the bs that comes with it as they discuss icks, apps, and everything far and in between.
Pointers were considered an elite dog in Austen's time, so it makes sense that someone like Willoughby would own them (also, having cute dogs is possibly the only nice thing we can say about Willoughby). This episode we welcome back Dr. Stephanie Howard-Smith for more 18th-century dog talk. We cover everything from the care and feeding of pointers to trends in 18th-century game hunting. Sir John heartily approves. If you have ever been quite literally swept off your feet by a man with two pointers playing round him, this episode is for you. Thank you so much to Stephanie for joining us for this episode! You can find her on Twitter @SAHowardSmith.

You've no doubt heard people say of non-fiction books “that should have been an article”. Not every idea can sustain an entire book or story. Many things that feel like ideas are really set-ups: what if there was a school for dragon riders? Yes, absolutely, cool, but the who and the what happens and the why do we care never go away. In this episode, we talk about turning the flicker of an idea into a full light bulb, and rescuing an idea that didn't turn out to be quite enough.Good news for memoir writers!

Elisabeth Elliott was one of the most well-known and influential figures of the late 20th century, and early 21st century, both in evangelical circles, but also in the culture at large. Recently a biography of her life was written by Lucy S R Austen, and published by Crossway Publishing, titled Elisabeth Elliot: A Life. On this episode of Theology for the People, I speak with Lucy S R Austen about who Elisabeth Elloitt was and the influence that she had. As Lucy points out, Elisabeth Elliot was a sometimes controversial figure, who changed her views on things throughout her life, and her life reflects much of the history of evangelicalism in the 20th century.

Commonplace Quotes: If we cannot get the better of life, at any rate, we can be so free as to laugh at it. Desmond MacCarthy Jane Austen is thus a mistress of much deeper emotion than appears upon the surface. She stimulates us to supply what is not there. What she offers is, apparently a trifle, yet is composed of something that expands in the reader's mind and endows with the most enduring form of life scenes which are outwardly trivial. Virginia Woolf The most extraordinary thing in the world is an ordinary man and an ordinary woman and their ordinary children. G. K. Chesterton Never judge a book by its movie. Anonymous False Though She Be by William Congreve FALSE though she be to me and love, I'll ne'er pursue revenge; For still the charmer I approve, Though I deplore her change. In hours of bliss we oft have met: They could not always last; And though the present I regret, I'm grateful for the past.
