Episode 8: Find a Creative Specialty, Apply to a Job, Improve your Smile

We are thrilled to be joined in studio this week by our intern and spiritual leader, Glormfloulk!





Glormfloulk’s favorite class at Paramedic School is Intermediate Cartooning


Episode Seven: Take Advice, Do Something You Should Have a Long Time Ago, Plan a Day

In the seventh episode, we teach you the secret to be a good listener, Jessica recounts her glory days as a child athlete, and Tricia gives you a taste of her soon-to-be-bestselling book, The Post Apocalyptic Diet.

Additionally, we are are pleased to be accompanied  this time around by ghost bongos. Please do not question the ghost bongos you hear in the background. They definitely have nothing to do with us poorly executing a new recording strategy.


A couple intern applications, because we believe in transparency:

Episode Four: Craft a Craft, Add a Step to Your Skincare Regimen, Do Something Nice for Someone

In the fourth episode, we reveal to you that the thing that’s bad about getting murdered is not actually the fact that you got murdered, confirm what you already knew deep in your heart:  skincare routines (much like nutrition and public transit) are best left to guesswork, and prove (with the help of relatable real world examples like Netflix and more murder) the point that kindness is simply a matter of adjusting your level of cruelty.


I wasn’t sure what “relevant” photo to include, so here’s an Instagram of Jessica shoveling shit, which is about as relevant as anything gets.

P.S. I think my rap-rock timeline might be off by a few years, but I’m sure you’ll all forgive me for that because nothing in this world could matter less.

Episode Three: Make a Cost Effective Meal, Try a New Machine at the Gym, Reconnect With Someone From Your Past

So maybe it took us a while to put up this episode of the podcast, but c’mon, man…we were distracted by kittens!




In the third episode, we learn that Jessica lives in an (awesome!) alternate universe where Fresh Prince lasted the entire decade of the nineties (ushering us tenderly into the Willenium), Tricia realizes that everything in her life is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street, and you know that third goal about interacting with people besides each other? They totally nailed that one!




Additional Trivia

Unexplained sound effect of the week: kinda sounds like there are squirrels brushing their teeth in the background?
Snack Tricia was eating while creating this episode that is like 90% about how sodium kills: giant plate of nachos.
Best Instagram filter to use on your scar: Lingering Woe


Look at this adorable scar! Don’t you wish your scars were this cute?

Episode Two: Make an Interesting Drink, Get on a Sleep Schedule, Ask a Stranger a Question

ROAAAAAAD TRIIIIIIIP!  In this episode, Jessica and Tricia share Pinterest-worthy alcohol DIYs, have mixed results when trying to get on a sleep schedule while couch surfing, and attempt to feel comfortable with compliments as misanthropes.



Episode One: Eat a Surprising Food, Do a Cool Braid, Make a Friend

In the very first episode, Jessica and Tricia teach you that the way to get directions to a fast food establishments is by bothering your friends on Twitter, chat about cyclical hair texture, and (plot twist!) defend oversharing on the internet.




We also hope everyone enjoys all the FUN that comes with people just deciding that they’re going to do podcasts and not anticipating things like needing to turn on microphones, talking over each other, a nasty cough, and the sound of ice cubes swirling in Gin & Gatorade.  These problems will hopefully be fixed next time to make way for a whole new set!




Many photos were taken of this braid but only one survived. Verdict: this braid is not cool.


 When you think about it, not brushing your hair is just nature’s braid!


Wouldn’t you want to be friends with the person who uploaded this photo of goat cheese to the Craigslist personals?
