In today's episode, you hear Tina's own compelling story about how she took her life from sucky to sassy. She has battled Obsessive Compulsive Disorder her entire life but she didn't let it get the best of her. She offers help and guidance to anyone else out there who may be suffering in silence. Remember, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger…
Today's episode is dedicated to the love of Jen's life, Stanley. Sadly, he passed on Feb 16, 2018. Jen is absolutely crushed and heartbroken. Before his passing, she turned to pet psychic, Terri Jay. She's a psychic and medium but prefers to be called a Cowgirl Shaman. She provided a lot of peace and comfort for Jen. Her website is terrijay.com.
Have you ever received a note from a deceased friend? Jen has. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss one. Now there's something to meditate on. Today's Sucky to Sassy guest is Heather LeRoss. She is an author, writing coach, and an all-around awesome person. The title of her book is "Just Tell Me I'm Pretty. Musings on a Messy Life."

Jen & Tina's grandfather was a close and personal friend of Jim Beam. In fact, their mom grew up in Jim Beam's house in Kentucky. Pass the bourbon! Today's episode is all about Jen & Tina's mom. She led a peaceful life of music, guitars, and church bells until the arrival of Satan's spawn, a.k.a. Tina.
Do you really know what it's like to grow up in a cult? Jen and Tina sure do. Well, no they don't. In fact, they know nothing about it at all. BUT, today's guest, Aideen Finnola, actually grew up in a cult and has a fascinating story to tell. In fact, she has written her autobiography, My Exquisite Purple Life, detailing her life's experience. She is also a life coach and motivational speaker. Check her out! AideenTFinnola.com.
Low fat, gluten free, no carb, red juices, bananas and milk. Wait. Bananas and milk? In this episode, Jen and Tina try to make sense of the wide, wide world of dieting. Pass the Hot Tamales, please! Our guest is Tracee Gluhaich, an integrative health coach, personal trainer, and host of the podcast, Be Well Be Keto. Check out her website at highenergygirl.com. She's the bomb!
A Christian mime, a porn star, and a bloody murder scene - Tina's real life true crime story. Wait, did we say 'mime'? Yes. We did. Today's Sucky to Sassy caller is Kelley Wolfe. She went from corporate hell to a life of serenity with life coaching and photography (including some ah-mazing wild horses!)

Tina was a slob in college, and Jen was forced to use the bathtub as a toilet. Throw in some cockroaches, a very aggressive plant, and a stoned dude with tampons up his nose, and you have today's episode. The caller is John from Colorado. He and his wife are building a house. Hopefully his relationship's foundation can survive the impending storm….
We've all had our embarrassing moments. Some more so than others. Tina gives new meaning to Baby Got Back, and Jen is thrown into the theatrical spotlight with nothing but a Peter Pan costume and a brain swimming with rhymes. Boy, we could really use an ex-lax right now. Today's caller is Juliet from Atlanta. She's a life coach on her way to becoming a true guru….
HHHEEERRREEE comes Cute Thing!!! Yes, Tina & Jen’s father makes his official debut! He talks about his years as a school principal which includes a story about “the boy in the box” and a parent who used the alias “Elvira”. He also talks about when Tina & Jen were young and their rambunctious antics (okay, he is only referring to Tina).
Pet peeve: Something that is a bit annoying to some people but is very annoying or upsetting to others. We all have them, right? Take sneezing, for example. A sneeze can produce 40,000 droplets and travel 5 miles. And if you sneeze around Jen & Tina, you may just get a Runza to the face. Today’s caller is Matt from Minnesota. He wants to go from meats and cheese to beets and peas. Stay tuned.
Embarrassingly, Jen & Tina literally know nothing about farming even though they grew up in Iowa. Or is it Idaho? Or Ohio? Doesn’t matter. They’re all the same, right? What they don’t know about growing veggies, however, they sure make up in uncanny wisdom about suicidal mules, headless bats, and Amish thieves. AND, they know a good, comfy, reasonably priced sweatshirt when they see one. The important stuff. Today’s caller is Ann from Iowa. She’s got 3 kids. She’s tired and needs some me-time, but her husband is at the gym. Again.
What do you get when you cross one pregnant sister (Tina) with another sister who just came out of the closet (Jen)? An accidental marriage between Jen and Tina’s baby daddy. No, this isn’t the latest episode of Teen Mom. It’s Jen and Tina’s real life experience. Luckily, they see all of this through rose colored lenses. Today’s caller is Regina from Minneapolis. It’s New Years, and she has a lot to be grateful for. Especially since she’s married to one of the most beautiful and talented women that we know.
Christmas is the happiest time of the year. Unless, of course, Santa doesn’t love you anymore. But, there’s never a shortage of gifts since Tina knows her way around a phone book and a department store customer service. Who needs Santa, anyway, when you have Larry as your Dad? Today’s caller is Kaitlyn from Rochester, Minnesota. She may be rockin’ around the Christmas tree alone, but at least she’s rockin'! Merry Christmas, Sassy listeners!
Everyone has a vacation disaster story, right? But this one could win top award. Jen may have thought it a good idea to buy her parents a cruise for Christmas, but things take a sour turn mid-cruise. A night of martinis and karaoke led to lies, deceit, and an incident in the basement of the cruise ship. Today’s caller is Michael from Ames, Iowa. He’s looking for some motivation in his college classes. Hopefully Jen takes care of this coaching call.
