About The Show
Kate Bierman is a political scientist, entrepreneur and the co-owner of several businesses, including Annie’s Ruff House dog daycare, Cool Beans drive through coffee shop and Yellow Dog Coffee Company. She also has a side gig as a business consultant. Kate is smart and pragmatic and brings an energy that can’t be thwarted. She speaks her mind and is always up for a heated debate.
Suzette Grillot is a former dean of international studies at the University of Oklahoma, where she remains a full professor. She has spent her career educating the rest of us on the inner workings of international political issues such as the weapons trade and various forms of illicit trafficking. She is deeply committed to social justice and works daily to spark positive change for women and marginalized communities. She is the co-owner of Equity Brewing Company and The Third Space, and has had her hands in publishing and podcasting. Suzette is serious and radically left, and doesn’t have time for your damn incremental change.
Jacque Braun is a graphic and web designer, podcast producer, the co-owner of Equity Brewing Company and The Third Space co-working space, and the owner of Bluering Design. Jacque is witty and creative and is the sexy soft voice that introduces our podcast each week. She is fun and creative with a wry sense of humor and a keen mind for business and life. She also isn’t one bit afraid to spill details about her personal life as a single woman.
Sereta Wilson brings the Oklahoma redneck side to the conversation. She is a 50-year-old grown-ass woman who started a doggy daycare twelve years ago and found her passion in the startup business world. She loves numbers, and numbers of dollars are her favorite. She co-owns along with Kate, Annie’s Ruff House, Cool Beans, and Yellow Dog Coffee Company. She also provides business consulting as a side hustle. Both Kate and Sereta have served in local government as elected officials. Sereta is seriously funny and, like Suzette, full of curse words. She started her life as a regular redneck but grew up to be a liberal redneck that can’t be put into any one box.
Each of these women have led interesting lives, pay close attention to local, national and international politics, and are ready to share their experiences. They are highly educated and experienced, have children and careers, and have participated in some level of activism. They have many opinions about the world and its people and are not afraid to share them.
