Johnny Depp, Jessica Chastain, Steve Pieters, Robert Morse



E130 – We talk about the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, Julianne’s memories on set with Johnny Depp on “Mortdecai” with Gwyneth Paltrow, her thoughts on the Alec Baldwin shooting, Rob Huebel’s and Paul Scheer’s thoughts on the trial, and the wacky psychology involved. What is your own psych diagnosis? Take the test, linked below! Weens updates us on her grad school career updates in social work, specifically in the death and dying and hospice fields, while Jo ranks California colleges as of 20 years ago. Then we discuss an Oscar date with Jessica Chastain as we play part of our documentary interview with Steve Pieters, an AIDS activist, friend, and pastor, who tells us the inside scoop on what “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” Best Actress Academy Award winner is really like. We learn which star helped Steve get ready, who were the stars right next to him at the event, and lessons he learned. Also we remember Robert Morse, Tony and Emmy winner who you might know from “Mad Men” and “How to Succeed In Business Without Trying.” Read a wonderful article about this friend and actor that sums up his prolific career, link below, as we reflect on the good, bad, and crazy of Hollywood!

Tahiti, Moorea, Prune Tips, Departure Songs



E127 – Recapping our recent amazing Tahiti and Moorea trip with mom, we talk tsunami from Tonga, the food forest pool boy, crazy drives in our mango jellybean car, a backwoods pig, chumming, and our favorite memories of the beautiful islands in French Polynesia. LISTEN TO THE END for the sweetest song we recorded at the airport going home. We were crying into our masks! But first we get up close and personal about travel bowels, otherwise known as vacation constipation, and wonder if anyone else out there suffers from this too. What can you do to prevent it? Is it diet or stress? How can you fix it? And how do you deal with toilet issues with your travel partners? We also delve into how things are going living together, what is vabbing, some tongue twisters, as well as embarrass ourselves with a fun new talent. Yes, we realize we’re educated middle-aged women that still get a huge kick out of 13-year-old boy humor. Don’t know what to say besides… this is us!

Thank you to our amazing patrons – our family!!! – and to our new patron Sara! Hope you like the song, discussion, and welcome pack!

Homecoming, Creative Juices, Intimate Laundry



E122 – We talk old movie humor, Elon Musk in a tiny house “Martian” style, and Mouse’s kids with their embarrassing homecoming story. Then it’s back! Guess that Weenie Tune! Learn this song’s real origin and collaboration with guitarist Ishan Cooper, aka Coop DeVille of “Bat Funk Crazy” and George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic fame. Afterwards we get into dream jobs, creative juices, and how to take Julianne’s psychology knowledge and combine it with her other filmmaking skills. Should we team up, bunk up, and make a documentary on the science of dreams? The topic of gratitude, boundaries, and teen responsibility comes up, namely teaching kids collegey life skills like laundry. This leads to secret sniffer talk and other intimates! On that note, should we add some water weenies to our merch? We think so! Write in to mouseandweens@gmail.com. Visit Weens music at https://JulianneEggold.com
