Should I Stay or Should I Zo



E40 – Kids and Piano: we discuss how to deal with kids who want to quit activities. In Joelle’s case, two of her three kids want to stop taking piano lessons. We interview their music teacher, guitarist and pianist Zo Shah, for his insight and advice for parents. Hear about our musical background and advice from friends, and how to properly pronounce ukulele! We also chat about the Netflix show Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, donating dresses to Cinderella’s Attic, the Myers-Briggs personality test, strange sensory seeking behaviors, and whether Weens should throw her own self wedding!

Worst Dates



E39 – Our holiday catch-up includes Idaho, Cowboy Denny, sledding, sleighs, elk and party stories. We also get into the LA scene, and the difference between there and the San Diego suburbs. By the way, we are making Weens’ New Year’s Resolution to promote herself! On the horizon are February events with the Bad At Love Podcast co-host Tamu, and another event by our podcast pals at My Worst Date podcast. Speaking of worst dates, hear Mouse’s near-pee experience with a cute surfer boy, and Weens’ night with a lab coat wearing bone scientist. We move into the car as we go on a San Diego tour and chat with our friend, Bachata Jen. She gives us the skinny on the New York dating scene, both with online guys and with movers, and has some great bad date stories and relationship perspectives.

Fruity Flamenco



E38 – Flamenco is back with a fruit-laden poem for Weens! This time, we sit the poetic musician down to explain himself and we find him rather endearing. We also hear the details of the three different Adam Sandler experiences Weens had and why he is her love barometer. There is some zoo, condor, and monarch butterfly talk, and even some lovely karaoke sprinkled in. Join us in this fun episode and please write in with your favorite duet costume couple idea!

Roommates



E37 – What do mice in the night, chore shirking sorority girls, schizophrenic lesbians, droopy Hungarians, and sweater thieves all have in common? They were our roommates! Weens confronts Joelle with her passive aggressive outbursts, and we talk about our parents fighting and their divorce. Weens sets her sights on woodchoppers and guys who keep their cars moderately clean, and ball talk reminds Mouse of her possum prune story. Thank you to all of our friends who listen and we hope that you spread the word about our podcast.

Crushes



E36 – What makes a crush? The emotions, chemistry, psychology and crush stories discussed! Mouse and Weens have new revelations about past crushes and have fun discussing old flames and celebrities. Find out what happens when you look up a grade school crush and hear some insider celebrity talk sprinkled in too. We tack birthday wish recordings for Weens at the end of this episode of friends and family. See if you can find the celebrity voice!

Interview: Andrew Piccone



E35 – Our good friend from high school, Andrew Piccone, came by with lots of insight about the Eggold sisters. He owns Wander Mouse Films, shooting projects for Snoop Dogg, Disney, Shepard Fairey and MC5. We all reminisce about growing up in suburbia, our old film projects, and the crap we used to get into, and then dissect our guy-girl friend relationship. Weens gets mad at us for leaving her out but he and Weens hang out now, going to movies like Bodied, the battle rap movie produced by Eminem. We land on weed talk, movie ideas while high, and pot paranoia. Weens tells a cringeworthy butt-dial story, and we get into November birthdays, Scorpios, and love lives. We had so much fun with Andrew, our Joseph Fiennes lookalike. This one is a loller! Amazing beautiful song credit: “Little Bird” by Julianne Eggold.


The Seance (lo-fi)



E34 – Weens and our mom, Joyce Carter, recap a séance they attended in the Hollywood Hills with psychic medium Patti Negri. Mom’s parents came through, and dad came through for Weens. Mom also tells our birth stories – Weens was gigantic and Mouse was a slip of the IUD. And we share stories of mopeds and mom cock-blocking our potential boy make out sessions! (We had some technical difficulties so the audio is rough in this three-way call, but bear with us)


Ghost Stories of Mouse and (Hallo)Weens!



E33 – We’re back and full of stories, both the dental kind and the ghost kind! Weens had a hot root canal, and Mouse had a dental panic attack. Scary stuff, just like the ghost stories we gathered from our friends and coworkers. The spooky experiences were from friends living in houses where spirits still resided, and from employees at the haunted MacArthur Park Towers who dealt with many of the residents dying. Hear about a little hooded boy, an angry rose-lover locking doors, a suicide ex giving a kiss, the man in the yellow jacket, the Virginia horseman, Teddy Ruxpin coming to life, and an out-of-body fisticuffs. Call us if you know more about spirits or if you have ghost stories to share! (858) 215-6897


She’s Out, Childhood Stories, Acting, and Murder



E32 – Mouse rips off her mask and reveals her identity to be Joelle Eggold Kohn. Ahh it feels good to not have a secret anymore! We also talk a bit about our up and coming famous cousin, Ryan Eggold, on NBC’s New Amsterdam, which launches us into childhood memories and adventures – spying, trapping the neighborhood boy with lipstick and Brut, booger boy, classroom crushes gone wrong, and reunions. Weens explains her New York acting experience and recounts a murder right outside her house. We end on varmints, stories about them and a shoutout to the Varmints! podcast!

Coming Out and Jealousy



E31 – Weens is coming out! She is Julianne Eggold and featured in The Lazy Teacher Podcast episode 39 Mouse is still wrestling with being anonymous, but having a secret is not fun and is causing stress. Most parents in suburbia have secrets and dumb past lives. Just look at Brett Kavanaugh, our favorite douchebag jock turd. We switch gears and discuss a fan’s question about a jealous girlfriend breaking up with him over a photo. Jealousy is a tough emotion and we share our stories, both in our relationships and in our careers. Mouse tells the story about when she knew she couldn’t be a doctor, and Weens’ coworker Jackson DeFreest from The Rookie defines envy vs jealousy. We talk about promoting other entertainers but having the tendency to self-promote instead and hold onto our one nut. On that nut note, please leave us a good review on iTunes!
