Episode 15 Garry Shandling



We interview our mom about her personal Garry Shandling story after we watched the Judd Apatow documentary “The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling”. The story leads to our dads history as a football player who went from the University of Arizona to the New York Jets to the New England Patriots in the 1970’s. Our mom tells the story of their relationship and gives her feelings on our dad’s motivations and struggles. By our final discussion we end up seeing a lot of parallels between Garry Shandling and our father, who also went into the entertainment industry. Weens shares her thoughts on acting achievement and self-sabotage. It’s another episode to get to know us and our family This is us folks! We are being ourselves and we hope you gain something from it too. Music is “Palmetto Bug Stomp” written by Weens performed by Angelo Moore. Connect with us at mouseandweens@gmail.com


Episode 14 Deep Thoughts



Get to know our seriouser side, even though that’s not a word. Weens commutes home through LA while Mouse deals with mom guilt and effing up her kids. We wonder if our life paths were set as kids – baby Weens as a creative writer, and baby Mouse as a caretaker. We hit the hot, hot topics of weather, traffic, and road raging in teeny vehicles, then delve into Southern California wildfires and a little more self-analysis just to lighten things up. What do you do when friends and family show their political colors. Weens talks about seeing life through an actor’s eyes, a writer’s eyes, or from a give-no-effs perspective. We discuss friendships ending over Facebook fights, and when to be right or when to be kind. And we end on the light, light subject of what is the purpose of life. Song credits “Song for the Psycho” by Weens. Enjoy our deep thoughts and please reach out with yours too. We’d love to hear from you at mouseandweens@gmail.com
