E58 – Weens talks work on Warner Brothers hit show The Rookie and Mouse discusses writing her garden book. How do you reset goals and hit new writing deadlines? We get talking about first jobs as Mouse’s son starts to save up money. Guess who was the babysitter, camp counselor, telemarketer, candy shop girl, frozen yogurt jerk, urgent care receptionist, and bowling alley waitress? It wasn’t all work either with motorcycle rides, whipped cream huffs, office looting, bomb threats to Treasure Island, and lying about lobsters. We sidetrack to discuss Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and agree that the Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt characters, and the Manson Ranch scene, is scarily reminiscent of a strange summer in our childhood during which our dad trained to be a stuntman at the artist colony Zorthian Ranch, full of nude models and pig pens. Hear a list of friends’ and listeners’ first jobs and enjoy this funny, weird little trip down memory lane.
E57 – Driving Miss Weenie On location in LA, we watch Weens close down from the previous day’s shoot of the ABC cop show The Rookie. This is our first video call, so you can see this episode on YouTube also! We hear highlights and lowlights from Mouse’s Puerto Vallarta vacation, pros and cons of The Real Housewives, our TV watching differences, and Joelle’s gripes about working from home and finding balance without mom guilt. Hear a coworker’s interview and his star stories about John Ritter, Clint Eastwood, and Angelina Jolie. Which one swore like a sailor? Weens details her latest dating adventure and we try to figure out what this particular guy was thinking. And hear the dramatic conclusion to the meditation light lady because we know you’re waiting on the edge of your seats! Go for a fun ride down Hollywood Blvd to see what it’s like to ride shotgun with Julianne. Always a good time! MouseAndWeens.com

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!
E33 – We’re back and full of stories, both the dental kind and the ghost kind! Weens had a hot root canal, and Mouse had a dental panic attack. Scary stuff, just like the ghost stories we gathered from our friends and coworkers. The spooky experiences were from friends living in houses where spirits still resided, and from employees at the haunted MacArthur Park Towers who dealt with many of the residents dying. Hear about a little hooded boy, an angry rose-lover locking doors, a suicide ex giving a kiss, the man in the yellow jacket, the Virginia horseman, Teddy Ruxpin coming to life, and an out-of-body fisticuffs. Call us if you know more about spirits or if you have ghost stories to share! (858) 206-9971
E30 – We hear all about life on the set as Weens is interviewed about her job in locations for TV and films. The behind the scenes of her day to day is laid out as we learn about some recent details for shoots on The Rookie. She gets talking about the creative process, her writing, other projects, and where she wants to go in her career. We hope you have fun learning more about Weens!
