Lisa and Sam Shake Their Heads At Us



E105 – A special crossover interview between I Shake My Head’s Lisa and Sam and us! We re-aired this PodFix Presents PodSix episode because it was such fun that we had to share! The six vague important questions that we were asked include (1) Is there any topic that the two of us won’t talk about? This brings up the sneaky listeners and sex talk right off the bat. (2) Do you have any regrets about what you’ve said on your podcast? Hello editing and haters! (3) What do we think of garden gnomes? The answer takes a big hilarious swinging turn! (4) What are your thoughts on switching to Canadian currency including loonies and toonies? What are loonies and toonies? We Americans get schooled! Be sure to hear Weens quote On Golden Pond – the Norms, Loon! (5) If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Find out what we both choose and its dopamine high. Plus hot dog talk, cinnamon buns, and salty v sweet foods. Finally (6) Would you rather go into the past or into the future to meet family? This question leads to family secrets, nature vs nurture, hot great grandpa talk, and who Weens was in a past life regression! Psychic medium Patti Negri, vampire Father Sebastian, the Padres baseball team, and Oprah make an appearance as we close it out too, so be sure to listen!

Dating During Covid, Ickrolled, Ellen, Gift Giving



E104 – What’s the biggest meme that Weens will forever associate with quarantine? Find out and learn all about hydration with Mouse’s larger than life water bottle. Or should I say Walter bottle?! We get updates on Hollywood starting up filming and Julianne’s job situation, and then we dive in to another session of Joelle Bugging Julianne About Online Dating. So many thoughts as we have an in-depth talk about relationships, being single, and finding a forever person. We talk about shyness and Jo’s science insecurity, and then jump in to Ellen’s underwear. That’s right, Degeneres fans. It’s time for another undie giveaway! Hear about the panty sending mishap as we segue into misinformed gift giving of Pearl Jam and wolf items. We end on sweet memories of our dad and get philosophical about happiness, finishing on the tv peeker Mr. Rogers.

Mental Health Checkup and Wrestling



E103 – With the stress of being a busy mom of three, and the isolation of living solo especially during shutdown, we talk quite a bit about our anxiety and depression. This is a re-airing of a livestream event hosted by the Victims & Villains podcast. We were honored to be given an hour during the 24hr awareness-athon during which we talked about mental health, parenting, genetics, lifestyle, and what has worked for us to get through tough times. We go over antidepressant medication and anxiety-reducing tactics, talk about suicide trends, fatigue, and finding purpose. In this episode, we also laugh a lot (Weens falls off her chair right off the bat!), we talk a bit about Glow, Marc Maron, Love Fraud, and trivia questions (email your answers to win swag!).The stories continue with nose and boobie punching, women’s football team tryouts, Survivor auditions, stunt driving school, and starring in the Sega Fighting Vipers video game. Why does the pierced nose logo look so familiar?! And the fun highlight – we watch our avatar selves wrestle other podcasting women in the Cretin’s Guild Championship Tournament via their WWE 2K19 video game! How far does Mouse make it in the rounds? How about Weens? Do we get crowned Champion? How ’bout those outfits? For visuals, watch on our YouTube channel or the original on Cretin’s Guild YouTube. Thank you to Victims & Villains for hosting, to our listeners, to our amazing patrons that keep us afloat, and to our wonderful community of podpals. We love you.

The Fun Episode



E102 – We just let it flow in this one and laugh way too much! Subjects include the new verb ‘to wife’, honking practice, strategically placed jewelry, and Hollywood occult workouts with our past guest, good witch, psychic, and recent tv star Patti Negri. Joelle compares rocker ex-boyfriends to The Lost Boys and we segue into Covid-19 and checking in on each others’ mental state about it all. Our Celebrity Stories That Go Nowhere segment pops up, and Julianne tells us her story about actor Michael Shannon and the legendary Joan Jett. Speedo talk reminds us of Jon Hamm, and Weens shares a story about a sighting at the Upright Citizens Brigade, along with Bradley Cooper and many other well-known comedians. At Dynasty Typewriter, we reminisce about seeing the all-women’s improv troupe Wild Horses with Lauren Lapkus and Mark Duplass and liken it to Julianne’s Don Johnson elevator ask. An odd phrase brings up our Leakest Wink story so we explain that favorite scene. Are we alone in thinking this is hilarious, along with Trump’s White House exit? Please write in! Speaking of dudes that are sociopathic and think they’re above the law, Julianne shares her documentary deep dive into the cult worlds of R. Kelly and Keith Raniere. But we end on the high note of hot memories in fa la la llama pjs and bears on a picnic underwear. Thank you to all of our listeners and patrons and if you enjoyed this episode, please share with your friends!

Steve Ferrone, Drummer of Tom Petty, Duran Duran, Clapton & More



E101 – We had the honor of interviewing esteemed jazz, rock, and R&B drummer Steve Ferrone. You have definitely heard his work – just look at this bio below. In this recording, he gets candid about love, family, dalliances, the rock and roll lifestyle, and explains some life changes he has made for the better. We learn about the mods and rockers of Brighton Beach in the 60’s and how Steve’s first blues band opened for The Who. Steve and Julianne talk shop regarding syncopation and style – Pretty Purdie, Steve Gadd, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. When asked about nerves, traveling, and groupies, we heard some funny, surprising stories! Duran Duran played a big role during Stephen’s busiest year, when he also played with George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and was in the Saturday Night Live band. We figured out the connection between Questlove and Average White Band. And Julianne’s Unchained questions inspire a great Johnny Cash impression! Find out which soap opera Steve was in, which musicians and moments rendered him star-struck, including recalling what it was like to record at Abbey Road. We also hear the amazing story of Prince performing George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” during his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers wrote in some questions, so we find out about a reunion, conflict, grief, what life was really like in the band, and insight into the person that Tom Petty was.

Steve has played with Average White Band, Chaka Khan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Duran Duran, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Whitney Houston, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Dire Straits, Aerosmith, Morrissey-Mullen, Bee Gees, Cyndi Lauper, Bette Midler, Stevie Nicks, Paul Simon, Steve Winwood, Tracey Chapman, Mick Jagger, George Benson, Peter Frampton, Anita Baker, Bryan Ferry, Rick James, Slash, Scritti Politti, Pooh and more.

Ratty New Year!



E99 – We’ve been Mousing and Weening since December 2017 so this marks our three year anniversary of the podcast! Thank you to everyone for supporting us and listening! We celebrate by talking all about the party that some Christmas rats threw in Julianne’s kitchen and futon and closet and lingerie drawer. We even get a pop-in interview (the sweetest ever!) with the pest control man who happens to interrupt our recording! All this hot rat talk naturally gets us onto the subject of men so we create some steamy Damon, DiCaprio, Martin and Banderas sandwiches. After some past Argentine boyfriend reminiscing, we jump back to reality and recap Christmas in Idaho. It was a great visit full of skeet shooting, holiday traditions, and Cowboy Denny bear poking. We segue into Juls’ story of an ex throwing her into a bear, and an injurious snowboarding photo adventure. And now that we’re back in California, we’re in quarantine and questioning bubbles. We are hearing about more and more people close to us catching covid, which is not a fun subject. Be careful everyone! Back to fun romantic memories of New Years and our goals for 2021. Ah, it’s fun to relive these Tahoe, New York, Times Square crowd stories. Remember crowds?! We close this with a shoutout song to all of the podcasts we’ve mentioned in past episodes.

Joyce Is Choice



E97 – Our mom was out to California to visit and we roped her into an early morning recording! Mouse, dressed like Larry King, goes in for some digs. And Weens, dressed like Liberace, gets back with some jabs as we revert to our sibling rivalry days of fighting for mom’s attention. Laugh along at the stories of pets, cowboys, nicknames, cookies, feminism, and altercations at the dentist office. We reminisce about our psychic visit, our dad and friend who passed away, sing a little impromptu gospel, and hear a heartwarming story about our mom’s big brother, our Uncle Bill, to whom this episode is dedicated. This is a lighthearted peek into a day in our life so come join the family! Hope you enjoy it, as we all jump into the holiday season!

Balancing Act



E96 – Life is a big balancing act right now. Who can relate? After some requisite excretory system discussion, and talk about backyards, shotguns, and The Sopranos, we jump into how our Thanksgiving went. As a parent, it’s difficult to know when you’re giving the right amount of time to your kids versus your work. And in Mouse’s case, does podcasting count as work or is it a hobby? What are other people thinking about how much time she spends with her kids versus her computer? Perceptions, expectations, assumptions and The Shoulds can get us all into trouble, so we try to break down our personal experiences. We also get into how friends and family are at different stages of how they are dealing with coronavirus expectations right now. Some of us are expanding our bubbles and spending time with family, and others are strictly locked down and only going on guilt trips! How is this going to play into the upcoming holidays? Join the discussion and let us know how you feel at mouseandweens@gmail.com
