Episode 13 - Jawline
On this episode, Tia talks about the film that's made her reconsider ever posting on Instagram again (not really who is she kidding lmao): Jawline. It's all about wannabe teen influencers, rabid fan girls, and how social media is even sadder than we all thought it was. The moral of the story? Don't drop out of school to be an influencer, it only works maybe 50% of the time. For more on 200 And Counting: https://www.tortiachips.com/200andcounting

Episode 12 - The Great Hack
On this episode, Tia talks about the doc that'll have you even more paranoid than usual about what you do online.

Episode 11 - Voyeur
In this episode Tia talks about a man who (no surprise here) is quite literally...a voyeur who spent years spying on people in his motel from a hiding place above their rooms and boy oh boy what a story it is. Journalist Gay Talese is enlisted to write a story and a book on the man and his...fetish but along the way there's some problems. Besides, of course, the fact that he's been watching people without their consent. If you're looking for another talk-out-loud-at-the-TV-and-go-WTF type doc, this episode is for you.  For more on 200 And Counting: https://www.tortiachips.com/200andcounting

Episode 8 - Let The Fire Burn
In this episode, Tia talks about a little-known piece of Black history: the MOVE bombing in Philadelphia in the 1980s, where the Philly police department bombed a house full of civilians and children.
