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.

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!

Mole, Mule, Mole, Mule



E27 – Mouse explains her family’s Jewish side – the non bar mitzvah birthday campout and the non bris bris. Is 13 a man? Technology, coddling, and helicopter parenting might be to blame. Free range parenting is getting pushback in Mouse’s community probably because of the past small town murders. We talk crime and burglaries, and Weens tells her stolen bike story, ending with a flurry of 80s George confusion!  We remember a family camping trip and get into why men on our dad’s side are solitary – artsy Grizzly Adams or anxiety? Weens tells another hilarious work story, we do some car talk, and get into shame cleaning. Mouse knows new moms are notorious for this! Mouse is balancing her mini midlife crisis needing to go out and party, with working in the school garden, and we give props to all the teachers out there taking care of our kids. Please tell your friends about us. We would love some word of mouth support! www.MouseAndWeens.com

Tonsils or panic attacks, Adam Sandler, Weens dude update, Europe trip, school gardens



Ep7 – We talk snoring and getting a tonsillectomy, wondering if it is an air quality issue from the Los Angeles smog or if it is a panic attack. Is LA at the center of depression, anxiety, headaches, and issues needing medication? Is it the fast-paced lifestyle and the traffic? Weens lives in the Glendale and Los Feliz area on the east side and tries not to work at Fox or Sony Studios which is too far away. Weens tells a story about….

…being at Sony Studios at the Happy Madison offices with her guy Adam Sandler! She likes that look – the nice New York Jewish boy. She tells a story about an ex boyfriend and divulges that she is 6’1”. We talk about Weens’ long-distance guy that she’s dating, and discuss ghosting. Travel talk, gastrointestinal talk, and camera talk ensue. Hear stories about Angelo Moore from Fishbone who was singing in the Celebrating David Bowie tour at two venues, the musical director Scrote (Angelo Bundini) who she worked with at the Wiltern with Sting, ​Gavin Rossdale, and Joe Elliot of Def Leppard. Shooting concerts has led to interest from music video and documentary industry people, and Weens continues to film shows even abroad. She flew to the Netherlands and Berlin meeting the son of the Roxanne singer, Joe Sumner. Mouse finds out many indecent facts about being on a tour bus including what is The Bag of Shame. David Bowie’s bandmates Adrian Belew and Mike Garson had stories to tell, even one including Bono from U2. told a lot of fun stories. We segue to Weens peeling out of work for Last Man on Earth scouting avocado orchards in Simi Valley. She feels bad for being excited to leave work. Mouse agrees and gets into school gardening talk. The elementary school where she volunteers started a farm to table program and feeds into the school lunches. We talk about food balance, healthy vs packaged snacks, and eating habits, disorders, and food issues. Is it better or worse to prohibit things like carbs or milk? Weens gets into her thoughts on being a vegetarian and we get a little heated discussing animal rights and the environment vs pediatrician recommendations.  (Enter Chris Pratt!) Hear the first throes of Weens’ road rage which gets us talking about the autobahn and our trips to Germany and Bavaria during Oktoberfest. We wrap it up while watching the Charles Manson orgy ranch go during Weens ride home. Good ol’ Southern California!
