UNGA Resolution on Survivors of Sexual Violence
36:06This episode does contain a discussion pertaining to sexual assault and issues surrounding sexual assault. Please be advised of this before listening as this episode is rated as explicit to help serve as a possible trigger warning for those who may be uncomfortable with the discussion of the topic. Hello everyone! The Hot Girls are back from our summer vacation this week with a more serious episode this week that we felt a need to talk on. We will be covering the recent resolution to come out of the United Nations General Assembly. This resolution is monumental for furthering the rights necessary to combat sexual assault and gender-based violence. As the tone of this episode will be more serious we hope to see further progress being made in the future on issues of sexual assault and gender-based violence and acknowledge that this is a movement in a positive direction. Thank you all for tuning in and we hope we can leave every listener a little more informed than they were before the episode! We will see you all next Monday for a brand new episode of your Hot Girl Briefing.

The Trip To Taiwan & Our Incoming Patreon
43:38Hey everybody! Big news! The Hot Girls will be setting up a Patreon with exclusive content at the end of this month! Erica and Hunter discuss the incoming Patreon and how the content there will be slightly different from what we're used to on the pod! For this week's episode, we will be giving y'all a bit of insight into how we imagine the Patreon episodes will be structured with a little less sourcing and a little more of our personal opinions and thoughts on specific events, and policies, or issues in domestic and foreign affairs. For this episode, we will discuss House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her visit to Taiwan, and the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Qin Gang, and his thoughts on the matter. As always, thank you all so much for tuning in and we will see you all next week on another episode of Hot Girl Briefing!
