E32 – Mouse rips off her mask and reveals her identity to be Joelle Eggold Kohn. Ahh it feels good to not have a secret anymore! We also talk a bit about our up and coming famous cousin, Ryan Eggold, on NBC’s New Amsterdam, which launches us into childhood memories and adventures – spying, trapping the neighborhood boy with lipstick and Brut, booger boy, classroom crushes gone wrong, and reunions. Weens explains her New York acting experience and recounts a murder right outside her house. We end on varmints, stories about them and a shoutout to the Varmints! podcast! Song credit: “Rainy Sunday” by Weens aka Julianne Eggold.
E31 – Weens is coming out! She is Julianne Eggold and featured in The Lazy Teacher Podcast episode 39 Mouse is still wrestling with being anonymous, but having a secret is not fun and is causing stress. Most parents in suburbia have secrets and dumb past lives. Just look at Brett Kavanaugh, our favorite douchebag jock turd. We switch gears and discuss a fan’s question about a jealous girlfriend breaking up with him over a photo. Jealousy is a tough emotion and we share our stories, both in our relationships and in our careers. Mouse tells the story about when she knew she couldn’t be a doctor, and Weens’ coworker Jackson DeFreest from The Rookie defines envy vs jealousy. We talk about promoting other entertainers but having the tendency to self-promote instead and hold onto our one nut. On that nut note, please leave us a good review on iTunes! Nina Simone cover song “Feelin Good” used with permission. Jesse Biggio vocals, Jackson DeFreest on guitar.
E26 – Friday Happy Hour and so much laughing! We talk wildfires in So Cal and the Paradox of Choice. Are too many choices causing anxiety and depression? We discuss Hollywood and whether its sordid reputation is deserved. Mouse’s wine kicks in and after a smoky laughing jag, take a guess who is Merle Haggard and who is Sideshow Bob. Weens runs into Craig Robinson on the set of Dolemite Is My Name and she explains their connection through music. We talk about women getting stuck in awkward overnight situations and playing possum. Mouse laments the Summer of Fortnite but finds some balance with her latest project with the kids – filming a homemade cop movie! And we report that Mouse’s daughter is still obsessed with The Greatest Showman. We delve into cleavage and boobs, which somehow leads to a White Grandpa Rap. Our relationships with our grandparents is brought up, as is nose-picking, Neti Pots, and other gross body issues. Nipples are a part of the body, Weens wonders if it was a turn-on to breastfeed, and Mouse explains what it feels like. We talk nursing, breast milk, formula, feeding, and sleeping. Hear the hit song Hot Milk by Weens as Mouse rationalizes feeding choices and light sleeping habits. We close it out with some sick laughter that may or may not have created a small tinkle in Mouse’s undies.
