I absolutely love Brooke and Jubal in the Morning! I listen to it like clock-work. Every. Single. Day. In the mornings I start my car right as the Phone Tap is coming on, and by the time I get to work/school I'm finishing the Second Date Update. They have so many segments that it's hard to choose by absolute favorite, so I'll give you a list of my top 5 (in no particular order).

Second Date Update

The idea for this segment is that if you go out on a date with someone and they don't call you back, you email the show and they get the person on the phone and ask why they aren't calling you back - the catch is that they don't know you're on the other line.The segment ends with Jubal asking "Would you like to go out on a second date? We will pay for it." It's always a 50/50 if they say yes.

These are the best! Without a doubt these might be my favorite. I think it's really interesting to see the kinds of dates people go on, what they think is okay vs not okay, and especially the things they are willing to overlook in a relationship. Not gonna lie, sometimes I wonder if I'll ever end up on the show, but I like that it gives us these little glimpses into different personalities and how different people react differently to different situations. I never know what to expect, and I'm always on the edge of my seat waiting to hear why they didn't call back.

Here is a link to one of my favorites.

Jubal's Phone Taps

These are basically prank phone calls. If you want to play a joke on someone, you send them an email with some basic information and Jubal (or whoever) comes up with these elaborate scenarios that are funny as hell. Once Jubal (or whichever character he came up with) has gotten enough of a reaction, he admits it's all a joke, and usually mentions the name of the person who set them up.

These are hilarious! I love how creative and convincing Jubal is on the phone! He really gets into each character/role, and he knows exactly how to upset the person as much as possible. And people's reactions when they find out it's actually a prank are priceless. I've always wanted to email in for a really good prank on my aunt!

Win Brooke's Bucks

This is more of trivia game that is played between a listener and Brooke every morning. They take Brooke out of the studio, you answer as many of the questions in the given time frame as you can, and you have to get more correct than Brooke in order to win.

This is so much fun to play along with in the car! I used to play every morning ('cause I'm competitive and think I'm better than Brooke) but now I work/go to class so the timing doesn't work out. It's usually random trivia questions, or things that are trending. It's not as funny as the other two segments, but it's more interactive.

Here is the most recent.

The Loser Line

This is a gem just for the simple fact that people are ridiculous! Basically if you are out and about and someone tries hitting on you, you text the number and get the number for the Loser Line and pretend that you're actually giving them your real number. Then they can leave awkward voicemails that they play on the air.

Some of the pick-up lines I have heard on this show are not only funny, but also down-right insulting and hilarious. Most of the time the people on the other line are drunk (or otherwise intoxicated) and it's really obvious. You get tiny hints at what went on throughout the night, and some of it is really sketchy.

Here is a good one.

Awkward Tuesday Phone Call

This is a great segment because they are SO AWKWARD! If you need (or want) to have a conversation that is potentially awkward or embarrassing, you let the studio know the situation, they offer advice, and then you call them on the air and have your awkward phone call. Just like with the Second Date Update, they eventually find out that you have been listening on the other line.

My favorite part about these is how much people are willing to reveal over the radio, and also hearing the kinds of things people find embarrassing or awkward. Similar to the Second Date Update, I also like hearing the other person's response/reaction! I can never predict how they will react or what they will say without realizing the other person is listening in.

This is the most memorable (in my opinion)

A list Of 15 Inspiring Words That Mean So Much

A single word can mean a lot.

Positivity is so important in life. A lot of times we always go to quotes for empowerment but I have realized that just one word can be just as powerful. Here is a list of inspiring words.

1. Worthy

Realizing your self-worth is important. Self-worth can really make or break a persons personality. Always know that you are worthy of respect. And also, never compare yourself to others.

2. Courage

Be courageous in life. Life has so many opportunities so do not be scared to grasp any opportunity that comes your way. You have the ability to do anything you have your heart and mind set to do, even the things that frighten you.

3. Enough

When you are feeling down and feeling that nothing you do is ever good enough, know that you are more than enough. And yes there is always room for improvement but when it comes to my self-worth I always have to remind myself that I am enough.

4. Blessed

Be thankful. A lot of times we forget how blessed we are. We focus so much on stress and the bad things that are going on in our lives that we tend to forget all of the beautiful things we have in life.

5. Focus

Focus on your goals, focus on positive things, and focus on the ones you love. Do not focus on things that will keep you from not reaching your goals and people that do not have good intentions for your life.

6. Laugh

Laughing is one of the best forms of medicine. Life is truly better with laughter.

7. Warrior

Through the good and the bad you are a warrior. Be strong, soldier.

8. Seek

Seek new things. Allow yourself to grow in life. Do not just be stuck.

9. Faith

During the bad times, no matter the circumstances, have faith that everything will be all right.

10. Live

Start living because life is honestly way too short. Live life the way you want to live. Do not let anyone try to control you.

11. Enjoy

Enjoy everything that life has to offer. Enjoy even the littlest of things because, as I said before, life is short. And plus, there is no time to live life with regrets.

12. Believe

Believe in yourself and never stop. Believing in yourself brings so many blessings and opportunities in your life.

13. Serendipity

A lot of times we look for things to fill an empty void that we have. Usually what we are looking for comes when we are not looking at all. Your serendipity will come.

14. Create

Share your ideas with the world. Creativity brings change to your life. However you chose to use your creativity do not be scared to show your intelligence, talent, and passion.

15. Love

The world is already full of so much hate, so love unconditionally with all your heart.

Internet outraged at Delhi Aunty for Sl*t Shaming

Public outrage - justified or an overreaction?

132

When the topic of sexual violence against women arises, women are often held responsible - because of how they dress, or how they behave, or even if they have a voice. A recent incident in Delhi showed that the mindset of people has not changed. In a video posted by Shivani Gupta, a middle-aged woman is seen defending her claim, "Women wearing short dresses deserve to be raped."

This backward mentality surrounding rape and rape culture is horrifying to see. The middle-aged woman first shamed them for wearing short clothes and when she was confronted, she told them "they deserved to get raped." She made things worse when she told other men in the restaurant to rape such women who wear short clothes.

Shivani and her friends later confronted this woman while taking the video. They wanted a public apology for her statement and followed her around. The older woman stood by her statement. Fair enough. They felt threatened by her statements and wanted an apology for her actions. The older lady, however, was brazen about her ideologies and refused to apologize. In fact, she threatened to call the cops for harassment.

The woman who made the regressive statements. Shivani Gupta

While the anger and outrage by the women who uploaded this video are justified, several questions are being raised on whether the older woman was later harassed for her statements. Public shaming is not the way to solve this issue.

"We cannot dismantle a culture of shaming by participating in it." - Rega Jha.

Now, I believe that nobody must engage in victim shaming. Nobody has the right to police the outfit one wishes to wear. It is astonishing to believe that even in the 21st century, people still believe that an outfit determines the morality and character of a person. That older woman was wrong to sl*t-shame the girls for wearing what they want. That being said, even though what that woman did was horrible, public shaming will not work. It will not change the mindset behind these ideologies. What that older woman did was akin to bullying. Publicly shaming her, stalking her facebook account or posting comments or by coercing her, you are also behaving in the same manner of bullying.
