Longtime NoVA news anchor Angie Goff launches podcast

If you regularly watch the local news, then you’ll likely recognize Angie Goff. The longtime newswoman has graced Northern Virginia TVs since 2007 on WUSA, NBC4 and currently Fox5. Now, fans of Goff can hear her too, through her podcast, The Oh My Goff Show. It launched in June, and can be found at ohmygoff.com, and on Google Play Music, YouTube and Spotify. Here, Goff discusses her inspiration behind the podcast, reporting in NoVA and more.

How would you describe The Oh My Goff Show to new listeners?
It’s an instant mood booster. It’s a show that you can listen to anywhere at any time. You can listen to it, or you can watch it. If you just want a jolt of positivity, something to relate to or something just to make you feel a little better … that is our main mission with the podcast.

What topics does the podcast cover?
We’re still evolving because we’re in our infancy stage. So, we’re trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t, but the mission hasn’t changed. We always begin with what we call, “What’s good?,” where people submit videos, telling us what’s good in their life and they’re real quick, little snippets. It could be anything from, “I’m pregnant,” to “I got a great pair of new shoes.” And then we go into our personal lives, things that happened during the week and interviews. We interview people who have changed the game in whatever they’re doing, and sometimes they are celebrities.

How does creating a podcast differ from broadcast journalism?
They’re very similar. There’s no gear shift other than you have more time constraints [on TV] because the podcast is not live. It is re-taped and edited. To me, this is my creative outlet. But at the same time, I need stability to thrive in a workplace, and I love news and being in the mix of it, so Fox gives me that. It’s the best of both worlds doing both.

What’s your favorite part of reporting in Northern Virginia?
It’s a dream come true to work in a place where your family resides. My mom watches the show and texts me about it every day. It’s amazing to have that support system around me.

Kira Davis: Abortion Is Not a “Gift” To The Black Community

Last night was the CNN “Climate Town Hall” and it was interminable. I could only bring myself to tolerate a few candidates. I caught the end of Klobuchar and then watched a bloody-eyed Biden ramble through explaining his connections to Big Oil donors. The audience was there for Bernie and Warren and they were only there for Bernie and Warren.

It was the usual climate talk, but what struck me the most was when Bernie Sanders responded to a question about population control. Without hesitation or any sense of self-awareness, Sanders offered up abortion in third world countries as a necessary and legitimate solution to overpopulation.

It was chilling.

In my latest podcast Just Listen to Yourself, I’ve been going through abortion arguments and talking points related to the issue and drawing them out to their logical conclusions. I’m fascinated by the idea of actually parsing out some of our reflexive opinions. In the third and final episode of a series on abortion (published mere moments before Bernie took the stage), I spoke about the argument the progressive left often makes for abortion as a form of “care” for minorities, Black Americans specifically. They often paint opposition to abortion as some form of bigotry.

I find the premise ridiculous. Forget the arguments about Margaret Sanger and the racist roots of Planned Parenthood for just one moment. If you’re curious about what I have to say about that, click on the podcast and you can hear me discuss it at length.

When abortion is painted as charity for a minority/marginalized community, what Bernie and other abortion advocates are telling us is that the world would be better off without us…or at least be better with fewer of us. It blows my mind that any serious, White American could look at Black women and say, “Hey, it’s better for all of us if there are fewer of you. It’s for your own good!”.

And too many of us actually buy it! Then we turn around and complain that we don’t have enough representation in the institutions that make America run. We are literally killing off our political capital. Black women make up 6% of the population and yet account for 35% of abortions. Maybe Planned Parenthood did evolve away from Margaret Sanger’s original mission, but it sure seems pretty damn successful anyway.

Abortion is not a “gift” to the Black community. Abortion steals our capital, our influence and our future. Sometimes it’s hard to feel like that’s not deliberate.

The Smart Girl Podcast tackles Dave Chappelle’s new comedy special and why everyone is freaking out over it.

Sidebar: Chappelle’s special was simply good comedy, but beyond that it was a welcome relief from all the of ‘woke’ mobs who seem determined to kill all joy and pleasure. Be warned, there are no sacred cows in his special. You’re all on the chopping block…but when a comedian is an equal opportunity offender, it’s easy to laugh at yourself. This is well worth your time as long as you don’t mind a lot of foul language.

Also, just what in the hell is Joe Walsh doing? Who is he running for?

And Kira can’t stop ranting and raving about the homeless crisis in California. The inmates are officially running the asylum. LITERALLY.

As you prepare for fun this holiday weekend, put the Smart Girl podcast in your rotation and let us follow you around during your chores and errands.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

‘What If The Child Has A Bad Life?’ Is Not a Valid Pro-Abortion Argument

Westlake Legal Group JLTY_logo_Web-1-e1567107227197 ‘What If The Child Has A Bad Life?’ Is Not a Valid Pro-Abortion Argument prolife prochoice Podcast Kira Davis Just Listen to Yourself Front Page Stories Featured Story children Abortion

My grandmother once told me about meeting my father for the first time, and how disconcerting it was in 1970s culture. My father is Black, and my mother’s family is White. My prim and proper Scottish grandmother was happy to welcome him into their home, although they were a bit apprehensive about my hippie mom dragging yet another hippie through their middle class home. That seemed more annoying to her and my grandfather than my father’s race.

While they learned to accept my mother’s choice in paramour (as my grandmother told it to me) they were especially concerned when the young couple announced their intention to marry. It was fine to marry interracially. They had nothing against Black people.

“But what about the children? What will their lives be like?”…that was my grandparents’ question and they were not alone. That was often the question asked in regards to interracial unions until only quite recently. What about the children?

My grandparents eventually had to live out the answer to that question as they played a huge part in raising me and everyone managed just fine and we all got out alive.

But I think about that question a lot when I’m debating and discussing the issue of abortion.

On my new podcast I’ve been asking people to take the talking points they regularly spout and draw them out to their logical conclusion. It’s an attempt to encourage people to be more thoughtful about the arguments they make. I’m in the middle of a series on abortion and one of the arguments I have addressed is this question people ask a lot…

“What about the baby? What kind of life will the child have?”.

People ask this question with compassionate intentions but it has always disturbed me because every time I hear it I think about my grandparents asking that same question. Frankly, I love being alive and I enjoy my life. It’s so odd to hear someone ask that question because what they’re really saying is, “Maybe it’s better for this person if they just never existed. We wouldn’t want them to have a hard life”.

What about the child? No, really…what about the child? How can anyone think that I would have preferred to be dead over being born a biracial child? How can anyone think that any living adult would prefer to be dead over being born into *insert awful circumstance here*? Surely there are people who have hard lives, even torturous lives and who have wished to die because of it. But most people from terrible circumstances don’t think that way, and in fact go on to live successful and helpful lives because of their difficult experiences, not in spite of. The notion that we should abort a baby on the mere prediction that they will probably not like their lives is not only arrogant but frightening. Who among us can predict what the future has in store for any one person? Who among us should?

The best people come from the worst circumstances. Those people go on to break world athletic records, cure disease, counsel addicts, feed the homeless, live amongst and serve the forgotten, and change our world in ways we really can’t ever properly grasp. We deny ourselves the blessing of those contributions when we make decisions about who’s life will be worth living before they’ve even had a chance to take their first breath of oxygen.

I discussed this issue at length in my latest episode. Please take a listen and let me know what you think.

Just don’t forget to stop and listen to yourself once in a while.

Phoebe Robinson of 2 Dope Queens talks new tour, ‘Sorry, Harriet Tubman’

Phoebe Robinson is a quadruple threat. The stand-up comedian is a New York Times bestselling author, an actress (hey, Broad City) and the co-creator of hit podcasts 2 Dope Queens (now an HBO special series) and Sooo Many White Guys.

This month, Robinson makes a stop at Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse during her first solo tour. Below, she talks shop.

Tell us about your current tour, “Sorry, Harriet Tubman.”
For those familiar with my books or my podcasts, you know I’m going to dive into slightly more serious issues, like gender and race, but I’m always going to make sure to keep it personal, as well, and talk about things like moving in with my boyfriend, or how we don’t want to have kids. It’s going to be a good mix of highbrow, lowbrow, mediumbrow comedy. It feels like you’re just hanging out with a best friend.

How do you connect to the audience?
No matter what I’m talking about, I always try to come from a personal place. Specificity is always key. When you’re uber-specific, it translates and is universal. Even if you’re not a straight, black woman, if you’re queer, trans, Irish, Jewish, etc. there are still universal themes that we all go through in our lives—crappy apartments, breakups—unifying things that everyone relates to. So, even if I’m talking about something that’s not specific to someone, they can still relate to it on a human level.

What do you hope attendees carry with them after the show?
When people are coming to comedy shows, they’re rushing from work, or they got a babysitter—some people even fly in for the show—and I want to make sure people walk away feeling like they had a really great night and they were able to take their mind off of stuff. I just want people to feel good at the end of the night. // Sept. 5-7; 7:30 p.m.; Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse: 2903 Columbia Pike, Arlington; $30-$40
