About

Our Purpose

The men LOVE to talk about their Masonry… Now it’s our turn! Join us as we explore the many facets of Freemasonry, from the ladies perspective. The G is for Gossip is a light-hearted talk show where ladies of Masons from all over join together to give their honest thoughts about it all over some quality girl talk. So pour a glass of wine and tune in Ladies. It’s time – for some Gossip!


Meet the Hosts

Ivette M. Powers

Ivette is the founder and host behind The G is for Gossip Podcast. She has a life long familiarity and respect for Freemasonry that started with her Grandfather, General Gribaldo Miño-Tapia, and then with her Father Angelo H. Miño, after moving to the United States from her home town of Quito, Ecuador, when Ivette was a young girl. Due to these close ties, she was frequently involved in Masonic related dinners and activities while growing up and even became active in the Rainbow Girls.  She still holds fond memories of the lodge elders frequently visiting her home to see her Father and she considered them all family. Ivette proclaimed “I always knew the man I married would be a Freemason”. Sure enough, her now Husband Alex G. Powers having a Masonic legacy of his own, never actually knew much about Freemasonry until meeting Ivette and being mentored by her father, Angelo. Today Ivette maintains a steady intent to practice many of the Moral beliefs that Masonry offers and takes comfort in the role of a Mason’s Lady and a Masonic Family.
