 Pretend you’re a model with a middling career | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 49:29

Time for a gossip sesh with the Girls! Melania's latest rebuffing of her dear husband had us thinking about contract relationships, and it felt like a good time to talk about the ins and outs of famous (alleged) lovers.

 Your gut always knows the right answer, with Jordan Syatt | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 58:00

This week, we could not possibly be MORE excited to be joined by the inimitable Jordan Syatt (who you have most likely heard us discuss numerous times on this podcast.) We get into all things health, body image, data monitoring, and online privacy in a conversation that we hated to end because, spoilers, we assume he's our new best friend.

 Let me tell you- I wish lobotomies were back. | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:11:21

6-7 months into a global pandemic is a great time to revisit mental health, no? We're talking about it today from multiple perspectives, including the experience of our own mental health as well as being a supportive partner when someone you love is going through depression or anxiety. As always, we love feedback, so if you have something to contribute to this conversation, drop us a line! And if you feel that you're hitting a wall and desperately need connection, shoot us a message! Maybe our village can't be together in person, but we can do our best to connect online.

 Here is my truggle | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:02:11

Who can relate to Caroline and her portmanteaus? I'm sure we all can in this chaotic time. We're here bringing our struggles and to your earbuds, and today we're talking about the difficulties with adult friendships. Plus: books, tv (sort of?) and some rabbit trails that we neither planned for nor will be apologizing about. Have you checked out our website? You can check it out to see our latest posts.

 My values are for sale | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 52:52

The pandemic gods have not smiled upon us during this episode, so some of our audio may sound a little bit off. But we hope you like the episode regardless! By popular request, we're discussing online school. Then by no one's request, we're getting into sports! As always, we have varying opinions (usually opposing); one of us sees a future in the NBA for her child and the other has comfortably enrolled her children in "farm."

 You went too hard and too fast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 56:17

We're starting off today with some book and tv talk, and then we're getting into RBG, conservative Christianity, single-issue voters, civil rights, abortion...it's a lot. You can find our episode dedicated to the topic of abortion here. We feel very passionately about politics and we're getting into it today after a weekend where we tragically lost a hero who dedicated her entire life to our country and human rights. However, it's never our goal to offend anyone and we try our hardest not to do that. But we ourselves disagree on many topics, and we feel that we have a responsibility to discuss what's important and relevant to women, even if it causes some discomfort. Here's a little more info on our discussion about the origins of the religious right rallying around abortion. Have you checked out our website? You can check it out to see our latest posts.

 What have I learned about myself? Nothing good. | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:05:54

Guess who's back?? (If you immediately thought of Eminem, we won't blame you.) It's been a long break and we've missed you! What a crazy few months it's been. Some of us are thriving, and some of us...well not so much. We'll let you listen in to see which is which, if you haven't already guessed. We've got Zoloft and Diet Dr. Pepper a-plenty and we're ready to hit the ground running with season 2. We hope you're ready for more good-turned-bad ideas! Have you checked out our website?

 You need to calm down! with Leslie Stephens | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:24:59

We are HYPE today to have Leslie Stephens, VP of Content from Cupcakes and Cashmere, on the pod talking about all the things we could fit into an hour-ish. East coast v. West Coast, being polite online, having to move around plans during quarantine, Mindy Kaling, and more! We are fangirling over her hard over here, and we think you will be too. We're also diving into a little bit of pod-personal news, about which we feel very conflicted. Plus we're hitting on some drama going on the news lately regarding women tearing down other women.

 The logic does not apply to me | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 48:21

Are we the only ones who are finding ourselves in tiffs with whomever we live with? Today we're getting into how to best have an argument using both logic and emotion. And we can't quite decide if we should be married to each other or stick it out with our husbands. Plus we're talking about our latest books and shows and gossip, because it's a good idea to chat with your girlfriends. Are you looking for some goodness in your life?

 A tithe of a swipe up | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 52:02

Happy Wednesday! We're here with more topics that women care about. Today we're discussing the fact that Eva Mendez won't be posting photos of her kids anytime soon, and the girls from Call Your Girlfriend did an interview about how to keep up friendships during this trying time. Also, if you're at home full time with a partner (whether or not you have kids), are you feeling like there's a balance in responsibilities? We'd love to know! A topic that we can't get enough of in the world today is how to remain healthy during a time when we're all confined to our homes. Most of us don't have home workout equipment, and we all have different health needs. So we're talking about the boundaries and guidelines we set for ourselves, and who our favorite Instagram #Fitspo is. Are you looking for some goodness in your life?

 A social distancing experiment, with The Batchmaker | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 39:03

We're deep into stay-at-home orders and we have all the thoughts about it! We decided to experiment with our podcasting and see if we could include another (much beloved) guest on the show, and our friend Cris agreed to come on with us for a few minutes! Unfortunately, we had a snag in the audio and lost Cris about 10 minutes in, but we're so grateful to her for giving us the time of day when we know she's got a lot of other fish to fry. We're your biggest fans, Cris! If you'd like to help out the team over at the Batchhouse, head over to their Venmo and send a few bucks. Every little bit is so loved and appreciated!

 Start with shame, then do checking in | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 50:53

We're checking in with the feels today as most of us are knee deep in social distancing and really missing out on friendships and communication. But we're not spending a lot of time on coronavirus today because 1) we don't want to and 2) we have bigger fish to fry! Maybe you heard a little story about one Taylor Swift?

We're here to lighten the mood, friends. It's been a rough 800 years this week, and we heard you when you said you wanted to think about anything other than a virus.
