Exes, Breakups, and What We Can Learn



E107 – Ex boyfriends, ex girlfriends, ex spouses. We get into the stories, complaints, and sorrows about ours and other listeners’ exes. Some are funny, some are just plain mean, and some we can all relate to! What are different types of breakups and how to deal with each? What are the types of ex boyfriends (or girlfriends) and what can we learn from them? Hear some great dating stories, some where-are-they-now tales, and even one ex who ended up on the tv show Intervention. Find out whether it was Mouse or Weens who got cheated on or who went on a date to stake out John Gotti! We dive into these topics just like we dive into boxers with both feet at the same time! You can’t miss this episode!

Thanks to everyone who wrote in with their personal memories, and special thanks to Dave from The Airwolf Years, to Chad from The Perfect Package Podcast and Down to Folk, and to patron Joyce, yes our sweet mom, for choosing this topic!

Anatomy Lesson



E106 – Bras! One of the most important tools in every woman’s wardrobe is the brassiere to hold up the girls! We discuss what type we like, common problems, the cost of bras, and what it’s like being fitted in person versus online.  Lingerie talk gets wacky, Weens gets sultry-nervous, and stressed by this after back-to-back family birthdays, Joelle gets her panties in a bunch. So we take a breath with Sesame Street and work our way into a quick chat about the Elmo Netflix documentary. More Mouse knicker twisting, then the elephant in the room: why did our parents use the cutesy names “dinky” and “twinkie” instead of the anatomically correct “penis” and “vagina?” Luckily, our mom is visiting San Diego so we pull her onto the mic and quiz her about the family history of naming privates. We also keep her in the hot seat asking why she got remarried on our dad’s birthday, and find out her fun nuggets about horses, cowboys, Robert Redford, her reggae phase, cbd, drinking, and the story behind the broken ankle. Was it a case of our dad having a walk-it-off football mentality or was he being negligent? We hope you like this one as we air some of our family’s intimates. So many questions answered, so many laughs!

Girls Trips, Moms Nights Out, Female Friendships



E62 – Mouse recaps her girls’ trip wine tasting in Mexico with friends but feels guilty being gone three weekends in a row. Meet Joelle’s friends and find out if her husband is really okay with all this time away or resentful? Are the kids feeling abandoned thinking mom is selfish? How do you take female friends from acquaintances to besties and how do you keep those friendships going over the years? We go over reasons why we need our mom’s nights out and the science behind having girlfriends. We will post study references in our Show Notes. Hear the statistics on how much moms really work and how much free time they have to themselves. No wonder we need our time away! Then we read a controversial article about why some mothers don’t want girl time. Is it healthier to focus more on your husband or is it codependency? Joelle feels judged by this “blessed” woman who shoulds her, but maybe it’s insecurity and she needs to hear it? Weens does a great job giving advice as a non-mom and talks kids’ independence, giving up some control, and raises the future question of how much you should talk dirty in front of your kids. This is a good one for all of us striving to get balance with parenting anxiety. Please take a listen and rate/review on Apple Podcasts to let us know what you think! Thank you!

Love Stories



E43 – How I met your father! Mouse tells the story of how she and hubby Dave got together. It was a bumpy ride but could be made into a rom com screenplay. Our mom gives us her country line dancing romance with Cowboy Denny and we get some nuggets of love advice on Valentine’s Day. And Weens shares a hilarious story about a foolproof way that she met some guys, one of whom is still her friend who has no idea that he was part of an experiment!
We also collected love stories from our podcasting friends at Deconstructing Damsels, #NoOffense, Sh*t Happens When You Party Naked, We Do Stuff, Hugo’s Posts, My Worst Date, The LitFlix Podcast, One Star Bazaar, Her American Story, and You Watch, I Listen.
Through it all, loving yourself is the greatest love of all. Apologies for the horrible karaoke.

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
