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!

She Writes the Songs, Grape MTV, Mad About Pets



E115 – Feisty! What starts as a fun conversation about work and stay-at-home-mom life, turns a corner in this episode! First we play a guessing game while listening to one of Julianne’s rad original songs “Cave Girl” This inspires personality test chatter and we wonder: are you a storyteller or an archiver? Mouse gets called out on a personal chef on vacation and explains why she feels like an imposter during talk of thrift stores. We go deep on grape Flintstones, Red Vines, 80’s hair, and Guess the Year of these MTV videos. But when the topic of mean girl sisterhood comes up, things get bristly. Parents Just Don’t Understand! What’s up with pet fish, iguanas, sugar gliders, anoles, and buffed hamsters?! Julianne is an animal lover with a pet store background and makes her case about caged pets vs domesticated rescued animals. Joelle argues for animals in education and for personal connection. Who wins this debate? Then the real question… what’s a weenus?! And we wonder if Juls has macropsia, which we mistakenly call macronesia in the episode, feeling dizzy from disproportionate objects. We end on Mouse’s sweet middle son. Is the sassy teen overcompensating for the fact that he’s actually a tender-hearted guy?

Patrick Wilson, Black Widows, Cadaver Mouth, and Re-Entering Post-Pandemic Society



E113 – The loins of Weens have been stirred! We wonder if her admiration of actor Patrick Wilson’s pecs is a result of the vaccine giving her a steroid boost, or is it the fact that the world is opening back up? We talk about re-entering society now that we’ve all become introverts. Are we just comfortable at home or is it agoraphobia? Hear the difference between our socializing these days amidst talk of hikes, gardening, loneliness, and family. We list 6 helpful tips to help us get back to our pre-Covid lives. Jo had no changes after her immunizations, but Juls can feel everything different that goes into her body. We theorize that she she an HSP, highly sensitive person, especially because she wants to save all the animals, including scary black widow spiders. We fact check these arachnids, and laugh a lot about a stumpy alligator, lizards, and snakes in a Celebrity Story That Goes Nowhere. There’s so much laughing that Mouse flashes her tooth hole where she recently had surgery, and this launches talk of dental implants, cadaver bones, and sardine spines. Help us make sense of it all and join the conversation at mouseandweens@gmail.com Thank you listeners!

Cabo Mexico Vacation



E111 – Come escape to Baja California Mexico with us! Traveling with the family, Joelle recounts her recent Spring Break week in Cabo. She has some tips for parents who want to travel with kids, especially teens, and talks about timeshares Vidanta and Cabo Azul. Mouse recounts the things to do while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, especially the fishing and Flora Farms adventures! There are deep questions that Mouse has for listeners too, such as when going on a resort vacation do you take the hotel shampoo or leave it there? What is your sex life like during a family trip? How angry do you get at flight changes? And do you think our kids sound like spoiled brats?! We also talk about traveling during coronavirus times, needing to take a Covid test to get on a flight, and generally getting back to real life now that everyone is getting vaccinated. How much is worrying about the virus, and how much is anxiety transitioning back to being busy, especially in crowded LA? Can Weens just stay forever in her virtual college homeschool cave?! Listen for a Sixteen Candles trivia question, and weigh in on whether you’d be interested in a Beastie Boys whale watching cruise!

Easter Dog, Feckit, Paul Williams, and Microaggressions



E110 – Easter afternoon we took the podcast for a walk on the dog trail. Are you into Jesus?! We talk traditions in our house, and the hunt for the golden egg brings up the trophy-for-all discussion. Hear Juls’ hot take on overconfident kids and practical parenting. We’re interrupted by dog fight drama, but Weens quickly channels her Cesar Milan-style advice. We discuss the changing dynamic of our sisterhood and how the little sis is now teaching the big sis. This ties into Joelle’s new favorite idea: The Feck It Fifties complete with a Feckit List, because life is short, who cares what people think, and family is important! In an Ishtar segue, we talk about songwriter, actor, Grammy winner Paul Williams and what happened when Mom and Julianne stayed at his house! We get into Weens’ sociology and psychology studies and learn about microaggressions, schemas, and body language to quickly size a person up. Hot example is Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s paparazzi scuffle back in the day, so of course Joelle paid attention! This also reminds us of the 4-part Showtime series “Love Fraud” about a real hunt for a dirt bag narcissist. Talk about microaggressions! Enjoy an awkward double hello with neighbors in a very “Curb Your Enthusiasm” tinkle moment, and be sure to follow and subscribe everywhere you can find our podcast!
