For Jen's last hour-long show before the Jennifer Fulwiler Show goes daily, she's joined by Lino Rulli, the channel's afternoon drive-time host. Jen gives Lino training in understanding "woman-speak," then Lino helps Jen get ready for her new daily show by putting her through a radio training course. Lino pretends to be a half-asleep guest and a ranting caller, and Jen dies laughing when she encounters real technical problems in the midst of it.

After Ronda Rousey's impressive performance to win the UFC 190, Jen discusses with callers whether this glorification of women cage fighting is in line with the Catholic view of femininity. Jen argues that women's bodies are created differently and, therefore, deserve a higher level of respect and protection - but some callers disagree.

Jen discusses the recent archaeological find that suggest there may have been secret Catholics at the Jamestown settlement. She then looks at how technology has changed the way children experience summer vacation. Although kids may be spending less time outside, she argues that electronics shouldn't be making parents feel guilty. Rather, we should appreciate the technological advances that make it easier to go to new places and have new experiences as a family.

In the opening segment of her show, Jen describes the amazing weekend she had at the 2015 Edel Gathering, a Catholic women's conference that she hosts. She also plays a clip of Kelly Mantoan, homeschooling mom of 5, rapping during the karaoke party. Jen then gives her take on the probe to Pluto carrying the ashes of the once-plant's discoverer, Clyde Tombaugh. She argues that this symbolic act shows a subconscious understanding of the sacredness of the person.
