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!
E52 – Here we go! Weens cannonballs into town to talk about the latest news, Mouse recalls her recent dental panic attack, Weens announces her hiatus from working on a TV job is coming to a close, and lets us in on projects she’s doing and a standup class she’s taking! She even tells a joke. Wait for it. Then we go mano a mano on our topic: sister fights! We relive some of our biggest sister fight memories and rehash what actually went down. Who punched first? What got stolen? Hairpulling, door locks, and jealousy, oh my! We get into sibling rivalry, growing up, and what it’s like for Mouse with kids of her own dealing with this. How do you make kids get along? What are some tips on apologizing? As an adult, how do you get along with a sibling now? We’re not experts, but we feel lucky that we have a good relationship and share a little bit about it. Hope you enjoy this episode! MouseAndWeens.com | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Ko-Fi

E47 – Weens wrapped ABC’s hit show The Rookie and is going to fill her hiatus with creative endeavors Myers-Briggs style, even though it’s possible that Jung and Freud were full of BS. Weens is searching for her main gig, isn’t sure about being on stage, but loves improv and recalls watching Upright Citizens Brigade in New York for the first time. She took some UCB classes in LA, and then challenges Mouse on her comedy and improv skills. Mouse gets nervy when she lectures to gardeners, but she commands a room when it’s about sexual health. Go figure. Hear the exercise we both do on being an expert and see if you feel the fraud and imposter syndrome creeping in. We segue to hear about Mouse’s recent colonoscopy and get the play by play on what to expect under twilight anesthesia when you basically get roofied with fentanyl. Then take a delightful Jeep ride down memory lane, Dickens style, as Weens recounts caring for Mouse after oral surgery and why she still might be on America’s Most Wanted list.

We also hear the details of the three different Adam Sandler experiences Weens had and why he is her love barometer. There is some zoo, condor, and monarch butterfly talk, and even some lovely karaoke sprinkled in. Join us in this fun episode and please write in with your favorite duet costume couple idea!

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!
