Elon Musk, Viral Bananas, Hammy Mammagrammy



E137 – We catch up over Christmas break while Joelle’s in Idaho & Julianne’s in San Diego editing our documentary. Hear about snowy plans, Poway bandits, Red Riders & Home Alone. We made this year’s https://www.AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com calendar, talk crappy kids in photos & Mouse finally gives her London recap. See tourist recommendations from a Brit Pod Scene podcast below & hear Number One Rerun’s deep thoughts on Harry Potter. We discuss when to scrub social media for work, & then get right into Weens’ viral banana video & Hairy Pants song! Speaking of clickable, listen to Julianne’s stories about the real personalities of Jack Black, Michael Shannon & Keanu Reeves. Do they have Brad Pitt’s face blindness? Do you forget how you know people like Mouse does? We jump into the gutter for a while to discuss monorchidism & the female body part that rhymes with Horace, chorus & taurus. And finally we discuss Elon Musk’s comedy career, finding out what politics, the Rachel Maddow Ultra & BagMan podcasts, & cat-sitting have to do with each other. We bring around the episode talking boobs, mammograms, & gallows humor. Then Weens redefines social work, throws out some gross words & ends questioning her solitude and dislike of crowds these days.

Number One Rerun Podcast: https://NumberOneRerun.podbean.com and their London tourist guide based on Joelle’s teenagers: “We reckon places they may like to visit: Junkyard Golf, Flight Club (go to Shoreditch one as Junkyard Golf is there too), London Eye, Sky Garden, Tower Bridge (walk over glass floor). If you want to get the tube to North Greenwich you can see the O2 – has outlet shopping, restaurants, etc & Toca Social (a virtual football/soccer place). Cable cars there too so nice views & if you want to be mega adventurous you can walk up the O2 as well. Shopping: start at Marble Arch & walk up to Oxford Circus & turn off into Carnaby Street (you can come back out & head past Tottenham Court Road towards Leicester Square (also cool & near Piccadilly Circus) to see Denmark Street on the way if into music (though not hip hop!) For restaurants/cool shopping – Covent Garden or Borough Market (you can see the Shard near there too). Good coffee chains Oree/Joe & The Juice/Ole & Steen/Peyton & Byrne). There’s Harry bloody Potter things everywhere so you won’t miss that little sod. Plus obviously for you see Buckingham Palace, go on a London bus, etc – lovely.”

Warner Brothers Studios and Meeting a TV Star



E63 – Weens hosts Mouse and family for a day at her work at Warner Brothers Studios to tour behind the scenes and meet Nathan Fillion! We give the play by play of everything from tv show sets we walked around on, to the prop rooms, to the costume warehouse, to the scene we watched get shot, to the conversation we had with the star of The Rookie.  Hear Joelle’s review of the family friendly Magic Castle Hotel, the adventures on Hollywood Boulevard, and some of the secret sights on the backlot. We discuss the special effect props the kids encountered on location and the demystification of the big screen. Weens interviews co-worker Bruce Sharpp and we learn how this electrical rigging gaffer balances family life and showbiz. If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, DC Universe, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Fuller House, Young Sheldon, Chuck Lorre, Lucifer, True Blood, Batman, or The Rookie, be sure to listen and follow our social media to see all of the movies and pictures we will post!

LA Werk It Weekend, Stump Dan, Stunts and Special FX



E61 – Come play! We break down our weekend in downtown LA at the historic Ace Hotel’s Werk It women’s podcasting conference. Hear our lecture takeaways and highlights scootering in skirts, meeting famous podcaster Georgia Hardstark of My Favorite Murder, and hanging with Dessa, well-known rapper, author, and TED Talk lecturer at the closing party. She went deep with us into the neuroscience behind love and we talk a little bit about both of our relationship obsessions. Then we come back to Julianne’s cottage and have a jam session with Dan Mahony, playing the game Stump Dan the Guitar Man. He is so good! See if he gets stumped by Lizzo, Afroman, Coldplay, or Queens of the Stone Age, and watch the rest of the performance on our Facebook Live video in our FB Group. We take a turn into the behind the scenes of tv and film as Weens talks about her dream of working in stunts. What is her connection with the Sega Fighting Vipers commercial and main character design? Should she take a stunt driving course? What did she do in The Rookie’s Season 2 trailer? Hear her interview with Special Effects coordinator Bob Calvert and one of his craziest memories working with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny on The X-Files. And find out where on the risk-taking scale Mouse is these days.

Korean Day Spa



E17 – An uncomfortably close coffee shop hangout turns into a discussion about kids hobbies, a sisterly confrontation about why we didnt get along in middle school or high school, and brief thoughts on psychic connections. Then we delve into spa memories, which inspires us to go to a Korean Spa the following day. We report back with all of the gory naked details but have a few funny introspective revelations too. Write to us at mouseandweens@gmail.com with topics and we will talk about you!


Are Millennials Into Cougars or Just Open Minded?



E16 – This is a fun one, digging in to Weens dating life and pondering the May-December romance phenomenon she keeps seeing as we hear clips of Tyrese, a young PA who asked her out. In between, we share nude beach stories, discuss female anatomy, and lightly cover marriage and divorce. Then we hear some behind the scenes stories of Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag, and give our thoughts on 15 minutes of fame and the Kardashians. Weens explains to Mouse how movie negotiations start off and which comes first, the actor or the money. Music outro credits “Jam With My Butter” by Weens


Deep Thoughts



E14 – 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


Finds Her Anus!



E13 – Sometimes you just have to go there. We discuss poop and parenting wiping methods, and get into a bit of anatomy. We ask the hard-hitting questions. Do women have taints? Is there hair on a taint? What is your wiping technique? Do you have embarrassing stories with your in-laws? PLEASE WRITE IN mouseandweens@gmail.com Meet Mouse’s husband in our second-ever interview, and hear Weens dish on Squiggy, The Squirrel Nut Zippers, and Bob’s Burgers.
