Jamie Grumet: TIME Cover Breastfeeding & Attachment Parenting



E135 – We have a wonderful conversation with Jamie Grumet, known for her controversial breastfeeding cover on TIME magazine, now at its 10-year anniversary. With a background in anthropology & theology, she is the author of Modern Attachment Parenting: The Comprehensive Guide to Raising a Secure Child, its introduction by Dr. Sears & foreword by Alanis Morissette. Jamie shares her insights on parenting using these methods while educating us about other cultures, adoption, breastfeeding & children self-weaning at older ages. We find out what she went through going viral in such a contentious way at a young age, and discuss the psychology of what this represents; mothers judging mothers, puritanical ideals & sexual repression. Does she regret the photo session? And we talk about what we can do to educate future generations. Our own adult attachment styles are analyzed too (secure, anxious, avoidant, etc), as we wonder how we were raised. Spoiler alert: we know a lot about each others’ childhoods. Our parents were best friends in high school, so Jamie is like our honorary little sister! We hope you enjoy this interesting discussion & support Jamie’s wonderfully inclusive & accepting book, currently sold on Amazon!

Homecoming, Creative Juices, Intimate Laundry



E122 – We talk old movie humor, Elon Musk in a tiny house “Martian” style, and Mouse’s kids with their embarrassing homecoming story. Then it’s back! Guess that Weenie Tune! Learn this song’s real origin and collaboration with guitarist Ishan Cooper, aka Coop DeVille of “Bat Funk Crazy” and George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic fame. Afterwards we get into dream jobs, creative juices, and how to take Julianne’s psychology knowledge and combine it with her other filmmaking skills. Should we team up, bunk up, and make a documentary on the science of dreams? The topic of gratitude, boundaries, and teen responsibility comes up, namely teaching kids collegey life skills like laundry. This leads to secret sniffer talk and other intimates! On that note, should we add some water weenies to our merch? We think so! Write in to mouseandweens@gmail.com. Visit Weens music at https://JulianneEggold.com

Panic Attacks, I Need Compliments, Dream Incubation, Cat Talk



E117 – Tooth holes and a Huck Finn breathing tube? Find out what Weens learned about Panic Attacks in her psychology course. We discuss Mouse’s oldest during the summer, the tiny house idea, tease upcoming professors, and compare Weens’ leg to Bob Odenkirk on silks. Then it’s our new segment Cat Talk! Who doesn’t love, or have, or would love to have, or maybe not love to have, a cat?! Our sweatshirt shenanigans and name origin story will get your whiskers tickled. Then hear the bloody sad depths to which Mouse has sunk to get a compliment lately. Finally, do you want an answer to one of your life questions? Try Dream Incubation, which Julianne has been studying from professor Dr. David Sowerby. It is as easy as …well, you’ve got to hear the steps! It’s amazing to learn that manifesting answers from your unconscious mind is a scientific study. What answer did Joelle get about her relationship? And can she really be right up there with Pema Chodron and the Dalai Lama? Let’s listen and find out!

Matty from Nooks and Crannies on UFOs, ESP, Botanicals, Bonobo Sex, Orgasm Boxes, Indigenous Groups, Racial Classification, Brains & CTE



E116 – Hope your brain sponge is ready to soak up some fascinating knowledge! Matty, easily the smartest Nooks and Crannies podcaster besides co-host Evan, serves us up a verbal pu pu platter of stories and information as to why humans do the things and think the way we do. He has thoughts on ancient alien theory, having under his belt 17 years of college, multiple degrees in many social sciences, a touch of ESP, and two personal UFO sightings! Yes, he gives details on his spacecraft viewings, down to the unfortunate interruption. He explains his beliefs about horoscopes, Newtonian physics, and ancient people’s understanding of the cosmos. We ask about indigenous cultures in Canada and the US, talk history books and racial classification, and learn about puberty rituals and practices. We find out feelings on hemp, ayahuasca, and iboga as we chat about psychedelics and cultures. There is lots of laughter as we hear about primate sexuality amongst nonbinary, self-loving, sword-fighting bonobos. And we learn why there were a bunch of sad non-orgasmic naked people sitting on crystal boxes in the 50’s! Hear the conversation on why people, anthropologically speaking, fantasize about partners or have obsessive sexual behaviors. This leads to neurotransmitter and neurology talk, and we find out about Matty’s many concussions and CTE, and talk disability policies and thoughts on healthcare. It was a wonderful discussion and we loved learning a little bit about his family too. Hope you enjoy this insightful, funny dialog with our friend too and let us know what you think!

Easter Dog, Feckit, Paul Williams, and Microaggressions



E110 – Easter afternoon we took the podcast for a walk on the dog trail. Are you into Jesus?! We talk traditions in our house, and the hunt for the golden egg brings up the trophy-for-all discussion. Hear Juls’ hot take on overconfident kids and practical parenting. We’re interrupted by dog fight drama, but Weens quickly channels her Cesar Milan-style advice. We discuss the changing dynamic of our sisterhood and how the little sis is now teaching the big sis. This ties into Joelle’s new favorite idea: The Feck It Fifties complete with a Feckit List, because life is short, who cares what people think, and family is important! In an Ishtar segue, we talk about songwriter, actor, Grammy winner Paul Williams and what happened when Mom and Julianne stayed at his house! We get into Weens’ sociology and psychology studies and learn about microaggressions, schemas, and body language to quickly size a person up. Hot example is Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s paparazzi scuffle back in the day, so of course Joelle paid attention! This also reminds us of the 4-part Showtime series “Love Fraud” about a real hunt for a dirt bag narcissist. Talk about microaggressions! Enjoy an awkward double hello with neighbors in a very “Curb Your Enthusiasm” tinkle moment, and be sure to follow and subscribe everywhere you can find our podcast!

Sex and Love



E64 – Let’s talk about sex. Addicted to love. We put ourselves in the hot seat and discuss role playing in relationships, hear from a couple girlfriends about their fantasies, and talk about spicing up a marriage. When it comes to single life, why do some women pick dirt bag guys? Learn about sex and love addiction and its connection to parenting. The little sister teaches the big sister a lot about attachment theory in this one, amidst lots of laughter and anatomy jokes, especially in our closing song. We just can’t help ourselves. We get real with our love lives and it gets real uncomfortable!

Paw Paws and Bloody Shows



E45 – Part 1 of 2 in our marathon catch-up session. Weens met a boy and is now deep into a texting relationship. We try to figure out the meaning of each back and forth. Is he avoiding some answers? Does he have someone else in the mix? Or was he turned off by the suave texting that Weens was throwing his way? He might just be a disappearing prick, so of course we discuss this in way too much detail. See what Ohio, paw paws, karaoke, and Phish all have in common. Then we get into some bloody sexy girl talk, and hear about life on the set of the hit show The Rookie as it wrapped up filming. Part 2 to follow!
