E78 – We remember chunks of early childhood stories, but is it all lore based on old photos? Who was this woman Dolores Raskob we used to call our godmother? How was she connected to the Empire State Building construction? Rockefellers? DuPonts? Astors? FDR? Is it true Joelle saved Julianne’s life? Why was Weens always crying in pictures? We go right to the horse’s mouth and call on our mom to clarify! And being sisters, we can’t help but battle to find out who was the favorite daughter. Listen, learn, and laugh with us…or at us!

E77 – Well, Joelle’s well broke and we hear about the stress as she watches her property’s plants slowly die, a special kind of torture for a gardener! And Julianne catches us up on her frustrating hair moment and hasty Corona cut. We segue into talking about HAIR during quarantine and the special problems we are all facing – roots, greys, colors and cuts! We interview our good friend Carla Reynolds, a local hairdresser with some thoughts, tips, and tricks during this do-it-yourself time. Should we use boxed color? Try new colors while at home? How can we deal with these roots growing out? How are hairdressers feeling about going back to work? Trimming kids’ hair? After some more awful 90’s references (apparently we’re stuck), we pivot again into what is fondly called Culture Corner. We have two fun clips with Julianne’s friends: Matthew Stevens reads us a very hip poem of his, and Chris Osmundson gives us a book recommendation complete with character voices! Hear the grand finale song as Julianne sings us out with “The Magic Store” that you may remember from The Muppet Movie.
Thank you all for listening and we hope you will consider supporting Meals on Wheels, providing food and well-checks for seniors in need.
