Cowboy Denny



Hear what happens when we Southern California liberal girls have brunch with our stepdad Cowboy Denny, a born and bred Idaho guy. He married our mom 24 years ago and is quite the conservative gentleman with many opinions! A skier and horseman in the 70’s at the Sundance resort, Denny became friends with Robert Redford and Paul Newman, so we hear a few gold nugget stories. Get out your notepad to hear his How I Met Your Mother story, how to be a real man, and a rancher’s thoughts on knives, guns, and paper straws. MouseAndWeens.com

Mean Girls



E55 – We have encountered undermining women lately and try to get to the bottom of it. Mouse and Weens dig into some evolutionary biology – caveman theories – and we look at young girl groups to understand early mean girl behavior. Why are some women hurtful to each other in the workplace? How do you deal with anger, jealousy, resentment, and sabotage? What can women do to remedy the situation? Hear about both Joelle’s and Julianne’s current mean girl situations, after we play catch up talking kids, cord and screen drama, a Hulk Hogan archery master, whether our dad was the Golden State Killer, and reminiscing about a cute crush boy. Then take a 60’s music trivia quiz with us! The big picture here is to learn about female dynamics and how to improve future situations and relationships with other women.

Singing Wiener and First Kisses



E54 – Weens birthed an album of love songs! We talk about her LA performance at an Art of Freelance showcase and the how and why behind pushing out this 12-song love child. Hear her album at www.julianneeggold.com/art-of-freelance. Then we hear some stories from one of her biggest fans and friends, Don Adams, who we find out also has a slight crush on our mom! He tells the story of reading a page out of Julianne’s girlhood diary, which gets us talking about journals and diaries we had as kids. We realize now how overly dramatic we were in writing them. Mouse kept hers but wrote in code as she got older, especially for milestones like her first kiss. Hear how Joelle’s first kiss went down at Christian summer camp during a nature walk, and what Weens remembers about her first kisses. Then we scratch the surface on mean girls as we begin to do some in-depth research for our next episode. Please write or call in if you have any mean girl stories or advice! We need it! 858-206-9971 or mouseandweens@gmail.com

No Lo Siento



E47 – Weens wrapped ABC’s hit show The Rookie and is going to fill her hiatus with creative endeavors Myers-Briggs style, even though it’s possible that Jung and Freud were full of BS. Weens is searching for her main gig, isn’t sure about being on stage, but loves improv and recalls watching Upright Citizens Brigade in New York for the first time. She took some UCB classes in LA, and then challenges Mouse on her comedy and improv skills. Mouse gets nervy when she lectures to gardeners, but she commands a room when it’s about sexual health. Go figure. Hear the exercise we both do on being an expert and see if you feel the fraud and imposter syndrome creeping in. We segue to hear about Mouse’s recent colonoscopy and get the play by play on what to expect under twilight anesthesia when you basically get roofied with fentanyl. Then take a delightful Jeep ride down memory lane, Dickens style, as Weens recounts caring for Mouse after oral surgery and why she still might be on America’s Most Wanted list.

Ding Dong, Hi Mom. It’s Not a Doorknocker.



E46 – Part 2 of 2. Mouse talks about a neighborhood sex toy party and wonders how to confront her housekeeper who keeps stealing her vibrators, while our mom guest stars in the story of Julianne’s missing ding dong. Weens goes into detail about said dildo revealing the REAL story, and explains why you shouldn’t mix Ativan, dating, and sex toy shopping. Learn about the amazing German Australian purse lifting musician, and feel good knowing that you now know way too much about Mouse and Weens.

Paw Paws and Bloody Shows



E45 – Part 1 of 2 in our marathon catch-up session. Weens met a boy and is now deep into a texting relationship. We try to figure out the meaning of each back and forth. Is he avoiding some answers? Does he have someone else in the mix? Or was he turned off by the suave texting that Weens was throwing his way? He might just be a disappearing prick, so of course we discuss this in way too much detail. See what Ohio, paw paws, karaoke, and Phish all have in common. Then we get into some bloody sexy girl talk, and hear about life on the set of the hit show The Rookie as it wrapped up filming. Part 2 to follow!

Interview: Craig Abell Champion



E44 – Meet Craig Abell Champion, an amazing photographer, writer, director, multimedia and design artist, and a wonderfully kind soul. He is a friend of Julianne’s and tells us inside stories of life in the art, music, skateboard, and snowboard scene of the 90’s, sharing stories with Weens about Smashing Pumpkins and Chicago musicians, his movie Cornland, and his work with Burton snowboards. Craig’s photography and design work with Girl Skateboards speaks for itself, earning much press in the skate industry. He is also an open book when it comes to talking about mental illness and his diagnosis with bipolar disorder and mixed mania depression. Hear his description of ECT, electroconvulsive therapy, as a life saving treatment for his treatment resistant and quick cycling bipolar. This fun, creative, fascinating friend is an advocate for shedding light on mental illness and hopes that people continually talk about it and seek their optimal treatment. We love Craig’s transparency and positivity and hope you do too!

Love Stories



E43 – How I met your father! Mouse tells the story of how she and hubby Dave got together. It was a bumpy ride but could be made into a rom com screenplay. Our mom gives us her country line dancing romance with Cowboy Denny and we get some nuggets of love advice on Valentine’s Day. And Weens shares a hilarious story about a foolproof way that she met some guys, one of whom is still her friend who has no idea that he was part of an experiment!
We also collected love stories from our podcasting friends at Deconstructing Damsels, #NoOffense, Sh*t Happens When You Party Naked, We Do Stuff, Hugo’s Posts, My Worst Date, The LitFlix Podcast, One Star Bazaar, Her American Story, and You Watch, I Listen.
Through it all, loving yourself is the greatest love of all. Apologies for the horrible karaoke.

The Grass Is Greener, Wiener!



E42 – It’s Superbowl Sunday and raining gophers in Southern California! As we catch up on mom life and work life, we realize we want to switch roles a la Freaky Friday. Weens wants the excitement of kids, and Mouse wants a vacation from all the juggling. We discuss the transition from stay at home mom to getting back into the work force, finding purpose in your job, both paid and volunteer, and how to draw the line between the giving of and charging for your time. Mouse struggles with drawing the line on social media on her phone in front of the kids too, and Weens explains simplifying her life. We get sidetracked by Bert and Ernie, Carol Channing, and then reminisce about our boobies first growing, first tampons, and our PE teacher/actor dad playing sports with us after school while rehearsing scenes. Again, another Henson sidetrack gets us talking about Sesame Street and exposure to races and nationalities growing up in predominantly white suburbs. We end hearing a very spiritual dream that Mouse had about the afterlife, a possible message from dad, and a utopian society which reminds Weens of an Albert Brooks movie and some near-death experiences she has studied. Alan Alda also pops in at the end to give sage advice. We hope you enjoy this funny but serious, light but meaningful episode!

Mom the Type A Cowgirl



E41 – Mom’s in town and she’s busy! We hear about how she moved from Idaho to California for a few months, a dog and cat’s awkward first date, and projects she’s working on. She shares stories about a trick roper, seeing the hand of God, and Weens pulls some cow talk out of her. Then we get into Type A Personality talk. Are you Type A like Mouse and Mom? Do they like being this way? What is it like for Weens to be around them? We have 5 steps for you to balance out your Type-A-ness if you so dare. Take a listen and join the family!
