The girls are back for another episode- just the two of them talking about some amazing women.

Whether you love her or love to hate her Courtney Love is undeniably one of rock n rolls modern muses. This week Lynx tells Chanty about Courtney’s rise from troubled childhood to rock n roll Goddess, as well as her marriage to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. While this part of Courtney’s story may be familiar to some, it’s how many songs she’s inspired her rock n roll peers to pen that cements her status as muse. Courtney takes the prize for “Queen of the Unwanted Song”, having songs written about her by Billy Corgan, Scott Weiland and Dave Grohl, to name a few.

The girls give a shoutout to both of their dad’s- who are both big fans and supporters of the Podcast. The girls also discuss being so busy that they have to split up for rock and roll shows with other dolls (hey Ellen and LJP!) and report back later. Apparently it’s a show with a bunch of shoutouts so Chanty takes this opportunity to say hello to her favourite Roadie, Darryl! Lynx tells Chanty about the Riot Grrrl scene and talks about what killer female rock n roll bands inspired her from L7, Veruca Salt and Bikini Kill.
