E129 – Errands are not the most fun part of adulting. But, rather than rushing through them, why not try to make it a special part of your day…or someone else’s! We share some awkward and silly examples of how getting groceries, running to the Post Office, or filling up at the gas station can bring a little joy to those often-dreaded errands. In this episode, we chat about some simple ways to liven up your to-do list while connecting with people along the way. Laughing is good for you! The researchers at Mayo Clinic say so.

E104 – What’s the biggest meme that Weens will forever associate with quarantine? Find out and learn all about hydration with Mouse’s larger than life water bottle. Or should I say Walter bottle?! We get updates on Hollywood starting up filming and Julianne’s job situation, and then we dive in to another session of Joelle Bugging Julianne About Online Dating. So many thoughts as we have an in-depth talk about relationships, being single, and finding a forever person. We talk about shyness and Jo’s science insecurity, and then jump in to Ellen’s underwear. That’s right, Degeneres fans. It’s time for another undie giveaway! Hear about the panty sending mishap as we segue into misinformed gift giving of Pearl Jam and wolf items. We end on sweet memories of our dad and get philosophical about happiness, finishing on the tv peeker Mr. Rogers.

E50 – We chat with LA comics and podcasters Chris Fairbanks (Do You Need A Ride?) and Wayne Federman (The History of Standup), about nerves on stage, biggest fears, dating, the Adam Sandler special, and hygge! Hear about The Virgin Sacrifice show at Westside Comedy Theater hosted by Nicole Blaine with comedians Lachlan Patterson, Barry Rothbart, Laurie Kilmartin, and Bryan Callen. And we talk to The Virgin himself, friend and cameraman Chris Taylor, to hear what it was like to go up for the first time. Weens is open to trying standup herself and other vulnerable experiences, like getting back into acting, doing more creative collaborative projects, and even speed dating! Life is to be lived without fear and to connect in true relationships with others, so with that in mind, enjoy Mouse’s most awkward matchmaking moment ever, and our little Mother’s Day ditty to our sweet mom.
