824: Stingray Scandal, Tony Danza, & Internet in the Wild

Sarah is in the "carpentry" era of her single lifestyle, and she's whipping up a coffee table. We learn how to spot overpriced furniture. Sarah is in mourning over the "pregnant" stingray who is mysteriously not pregnant and the aquarium that thought she was is tight-lipped. We realize we need to apologize to Madonna because it turns out you can adopt a foreign accent just by visiting another country. We hear why Tony Danza is championing teachers, he needs a new publicity, and we think we love him. AI isn't as advanced as people would like to believe (but it will be the death of us all). We discuss an Amazonian tribe that got the internet, and now they're addicted to adult content, playing Candy Crush, and scrolling on social media. Plus, we learn why people are suddenly becoming nearsighted.

823: Green Flags, Zookeepers, & Dance with the Devil

Sarah wants to thank all the lesbians and allies for welcoming her back into the fold. She explains why she thinks she's following in her grandma's power lez footsteps. We hear about "green flags" women have when they're dating a guy, and we're disturbed at how low the bar is (bed sheets) and also disagree about men presenting as feminists. We discuss the TikTok dance cult where a pastor posing as an entertainment manager takes control of his church members's lives. We learn about a woman who saved a tree from loggers by living in it for two years, and why we think she could've done more to help the environment by working with legislators instead of camping in tree branches. We learn why zookeepers have the most "meaningful" jobs, and we debate whether a job is exploitative if the person doesn't believe they're being exploited.

822: Banksy Museum, What's Your Sign, & Slap Fighting

There's a new Banksy museum in New York that has not been approved by the artist, but if he were to sue them he might reveal his closely guarded anonymity, and we are delighted that someone might beat him at his own game. We discuss Kansas City Chiefs' football player Harrison Butker's commencement speech telling women to stifle ambitions, be submissive to husbands, and become mothers, and why the reaction of his coach and teammates (including Taylor Swift's man Travis Kelce) reveal how misogyny is still accepted. We celebrate the Reading Rainbow documentary and the work Levar Burton and the show did to help inspire readers across genders and races. We announce changes to the astrological calendar that might affect which horoscope sign is yours! A town in Texas tried to have the largest gathering of people with the same name, but they failed, and we have some ideas why. We hear what age becomes a person's measure of all things cool, and learn why political affiliation predicts how nostalgic you are. We learn about a new sport called slap fighting, the rules involved, and debate why men enjoy violence.

821: Serenity Prayer, Dangerous Energy, & Atomic Priesthood

You asked for personal stuff, so we're giving it to you. Hear how Sarah is dealing with the hysterectomy aftermath and accepting she won't bear children. We discuss the idea of a meritocracy and the lottery of life that can make you feel out of control. Sarah explains how futurists are planning to warn future generations about the dangers of nuclear waste. We hear how laser ray cats (???) might play a role in helping people spot dangerous energy (what?). We discuss a new trend of "friendship marriages," and Susie gets curmudgeonly (again) about polyamory and non-traditional relationships. Plus, we trash talk a celebrity child despite the fact that we are mature adults who know better than to do this.

820: Cheese Addiction, Fake Canadians, & Hug Rights

We get an update on MouseGate 2024, and hear why Sarah left it "in God's hands." Susie says snakes on an island off of Los Angeles are getting aggressive and are proving Darwin wrong. A woman went to rehab for her cheese addiction, and we hear how much she was eating, debate whether it's a real addiction, and suspect we haven't heard the last of her. A woman lived inside of a grocery store sign for one year, and Sarah thinks it shows how bad the housing market is while Susie thinks she's just a goon. Male scientists in Antarctica are as misbehaved as men elsewhere, and their female colleagues are sounding the alarm about the harassment and assaults. American hockey players develop a unique way of speaking in an effort to sound more like their teammates. Susie reveals why Carlos Mencia was accused of joke theft and cultural appropriation, and lost millions as a result while other comics are allowed to do all manor of things without consequences. One family is suing for the "right to hug" their incarcerated loved one, and we learn how prisons are making a lot of money by eliminating in-person visits in favor of video calls.

819: Mouse House, Puppy Dog Eyes, & Dinosaur Wings

It's an animal-themed episode for better or for WAY worse. Sarah reports on a new dinosaur fossil discovered in silica, which preserved its strange, patchy feathers and scaly skin, but made her wonder why the devil he had teeny tiny arms (that make the t-rex's seem like Shaq's), so she's got a theory. We have a mystery in Colorado involving a bunch of women's shoes, a fence, and a lake, and Susie thinks there was an avant garde photoshoot, but Sarah thinks there is a serial killer on the loose. We hope Susie is right. We learn why scientists were wrong about the origins of puppy dog eyes. But the real memorable moment of this episode came when Sarah had to confront one of her worst fears live on the air. If you ever wanted to hear what true terror sounds like you're in for a real treat!

818: Ashley Madison, Diss Tracks, & Near Death Experiences

Sarah is thriving and we're here for it! She even joined a special club of like-minded people, and it's kind of hilarious, but also awesome. We talk about the Ashley Madison dating site for married people seeking affairs and how the documentary showed the range of outcomes for people who were exposed in the data breach. The world's fattest monkey, Godzilla, died and we're giving him a proper send off (sans sugar). We discuss the Kevin Spacey scandal, and how the new film about it shows how harassment and assault has the same effect regardless of gender, and how his victims felt guilt and shame for thinking they asked for it. Sarah breaks down the Drake and Kendrick Lamar diss track feud, and why Drake is cancelled. Susie explains new research on near death experiences, and how our dream states and animals "playing dead" might unlock new information on what the brain is doing during this strange, yet not uncommon, phenomenon. Iran has strict laws about men and women in films and maintaining Islamic modesty, and the directors found a useful tool in purses, luggage, and bags to get around the limitations. Plus, we talk to writer Chelsea Devantez about her memoir, I Shouldn't Be Telling You This (But I'm Going to Anyway).

817: Broken Noses, Hungry Judges, & Handwriting Memories

Sarah has big news, and we're so excited for her next chapter. She's growing up, making moves, and being committed. We discuss the Westminster Kennel Dog Show and the amazing dogs and their quirky owners. We learn about the Hungry Judge Effect and how seemingly minor, inconsequential factors can change your life. We hear whether handwriting is better than typing and the effects it has on your memory, recall, and information processing. We discuss a Bumble dating app ad campaign against celibacy that has women up in arms. Sarah explains why so many statues have broken noses, and why it has a hilarious, modern day application we've all seen. We discuss why paper cuts and stubbed toes are so painful and whether penises are less sensitive than fingers. We talk about pet rocks coming back in fashion and Susie wonders if we're being too hard on their owners when people across this great land are dressing geese statues and collecting dolls. Finally we learn why boredom makes us hungry and how to combat it.

816: Furries, Liars, and Not Safe For Work

Susie wants to understand the allure of furries. Is this costumed situation kinky or innocuous (just the fur, baby!)? And would you be ok with your college professor doing his lectures in a full costume? We discuss a new Only Fans sensation, Girth Master, who has, you guessed it, a full circumference on show. Susie watched a documentary about Dustin Diamond from Saved by the Bell that helps explain the complexities of his childhood and trauma that may have contributed to his troubled adulthood, arrest, bankruptcy, and decision to do adult films. We consider whether Sarah would be a good or bad prisoner. We discuss why hair in our food is so gross, which leads to a misunderstanding about why Sarah thinks women have to deal with this more than men. We learn how frequently people are lying in daily conversations and what means of communication people are using when they lie the most.

Sarah is a single lady again, and she wanted to share what happened, how she's feeling, and why she's, you guessed it, optimistic. Susie just wants to make sure Sarah gets custody of all of her electronics. Sarah had serious FOMO over the North American Northern Lights anomaly, and wants to go to Iceland to get a fix. Sarah has a proposal for youth sports that she thinks will help boys see girls' amazing athleticism. We hear the most likely cause of death for various musical artists, and consider why country artists seem to escape unfortunate demises. Susie has a theory about death metal fans, and shares how one death metal singer collects toys for sick children. Sarah explains why we have so many clothes, how the French cooked up a scheme to increase consumerism, and why social media has our closets busting at the seams (so to speak). Plus, we discuss the importance of preserving indigenous languages.

814: Jerry Lee Lewis, Conjoined Twins, & Psychopath Kids

You spoke, we listened--you said you wanted more personal stories, so we're doing our best! Hear why Susie's eyeballs are mid and Sarah's on a tropical vacation. Susie talks about Jerry Lee Lewis, who is a rock-n-roll legend, but is highly problematic, and Sarah explains how we can love people for their best traits without condoning their sins. We get confirmation that body parts do correlate in size, so if you see a man with a big nose, just know it might mean a lot more. We discuss a set of conjoined twins who recently died, the reasons they didn't want to be separated, and how they lived day to day. We find out the traits of psychopath children, the shockingly young age it can be spotted, and the hope professionals have for their treatment.

813: Fears for Tears, Mona Lisa's Eyes, & Dementia Identity

Three cheers for lesbian weddings, and fingers crossed Sarah gets to have one someday. The Louvre is moving the Mona Lisa to the basement and now we want to know what the fuss is about her anyway. We debate whether Taylor Swift should use a private jet to fly or if she should fly commercial like the rest of us. Sarah wonders what the future of concerts is, and whether virtual reality could provide the same transcendence that in person events do. We learn what effect women's tears have on men and Susie successfully gets Sarah to cry about the movie Steel Magnolias. Susie describes a Pulitzer prize-winning article about dementia and the questions it raises about decision-making, identity, and autonomy for people who have it and their families. Plus, we try to figure out why urinary tract infections are so much worse for older folks.

812: Stuffed Animals, Charlie Chaplin, & Titanic Grit

Sarah has the Little League World Series fever, but really she just loves that they hug each other. Susie isn't so sure about all this touchy feely stuff, and is startled by the stats on the number of adults who sleep with stuffed animals. We revisit the story of a journalist who went undercover as a high school student, discuss why it's considered unethical, and debate whether it was valuable research. We hear about a Titanic survivor who continued a life of bravery, and Susie wonders why there seems to be less of that toughness now. We learn about Dan Rather's career in journalism, and how he is a symbol of a bygone era. We learn about senior living facilities' "no lift" policies, and the reasons they call 911 to deal with residents who fall instead of aiding them. We discuss the legacy of Charlie Chaplin and consider whether his "genius" is enough for us to overlook his cringey and questionable romantic partners and his bizarre perfectionism on set. Plus, we celebrate a pole vaulter who is making bank by breaking world records over and over again.

811: Schrodinger's Cat, Fake Vegetables, & Microfeminism

Sarah explains why latino families are happier about lending money and giving gifts to their family members, but Susie says cranky families are pretty fun too. Botanists want you to know there's no such thing as a vegetable despite literally everyone else agreeing there is. Susie wants plastic surgery and wants you to vote on what she should get next (even though she insists plastic surgery is "stupid"). A cat was shipped across the country in an Amazon box on accident, and we have several followup questions. We find out what the age is when you're officially old, and it's younger and older (???) than we thought. Sarah explains what microfeminism is and how you can stick it to the patriarchy in smalls ways all the time and make men squirm.

810: Hospital Beeps, North Korean Jeans, & Dog Hotels

We talk about the gallery employee who surreptitiously hung up his own art and got fired as a result. Susie makes a confession about The Jinx that has us questioning her mental acuity. We discuss a documentary where a young man travels to a remote island to convert the tribe to Christianity only to meet his death. We hear about the effect hospital machine beeps have on healthcare workers and their patients, and how changing the tone of the beeps can save lives. North Korea allows a BBC gardening show on their state TV, but they blur out the gardeners trousers, and it made our day. Sarah shares why she is upset about jorts, and Susie is talking about dogs again. We hear why dog owners pay a lot of money to leave their pets at luxury hotels designed for our canine family members.

809: Disney Adults, B Movement, & Snoop Dogg's Promise

Sarah says we need to amend Marie Kondo's guide for decluttering by reminding people of the responsibilities of possession ownership. We hear why Inside Out 2 is committed to representing the interior lives of teenage girls and Sarah tries to claim she is not a full-blown Disney adult. We hear about Harrison Ford going full Indiana Jones when he rescued a boy who was stranded. Sarah describes the "B Movement" in South Korea where women are swearing off men, marriage, and parenthood in protest of poor treatment. Plus, Sarah busts out some Old Gossip about Dionne Warwick, who, as legend has it, changed rap and hip hop forever by convincing some male artists to change their lyrics.

808: Orthotics, Bluey, & Space Junk

Sarah wants to get her groove back, so she got some brand new...custom, orthotic insoles. Ma'am wants to get her groove back sensibly, in comfortable, menopausal shoes. Susie talks about the new season of the Jinx, which chronicles the murder confession and conviction of real estate heir, Robert Durst, his origin story, and his downfall. And why the original docuseries changed True Crime documentaries forever. We debate whether the long-awaited and much hyped Bluey special did the viewers dirty by making a plotline that is more aspirational than reality based, and why parents are none too pleased. We learn about a nude cruise that is setting sail, but they do not want people getting the wrong idea, so they've listed rules about when to use a towel, take pics, and whether the buffet line will have people's privates dangling nearby. A metal object from the International Space Station hurdled toward Earth and smashed into a Florida home despite NASA believing space junk would burn up in the Earth's atmosphere. Susie describes the documentary about Hans Zimmer, movie score composer and cinematic musical legend (who composed the Interstellar score by the way).

807: Men Behaving Badly, Hip Hop Dance, & Art Heist

Sarah had an unusual live comedy experience at the Demetri Martin special taping, and it took her back to her Real World days. She claims she did badly in her hip hop dance class despite being in the "top 25% of dancers." We learn about Sarah's traumatic and morbid Coachella experience, and we can't believe she's never shared this story before. We are fuming about the men who thought they should destroy a national monument by pushing rocks that are millions of years old off a cliff. A company is marketing weight loss drugs to men, and the difference between the ways they market to women are fascinating. Sarah tells us how someone stole rare bird feathers from a natural history museum to make fancy fly fishing flies, and it is one of the biggest "heists" in history. But the real take away from this episode is that Susie should probably not have wine during recordings because she cannot (!) stop laughing.

806: Cold Plunge, Good Grief, & Blair Witch Project

Susie wants Sarah to have a Costa Rican tropical getaway, and Sarah agrees, but she is also thinking of going fly fishing and doing cold plunges, so this could go downhill fast. We talk about Charles Shultz, the creator of Peanuts and Charlie Brown, and Susie had an ugly cry watching the documentary about him. We celebrate a man who has the world record for longest marathon time in history (which Susie believes she could top) and boo a man who did a half marathon barefoot on ice wearing next to nothing. He also has a world record for the longest plank, and we hate him. Susie is worked up about the people who made the Blair Witch Project getting a raw deal, and it reminds us of being a reality tv star, which is its own horror genre. Plus, we hear why song lyrics are getting simpler, more repetitive, and angrier, and we're sad about it.

805: Octopus Parents, Fun Town, & Music Ban

Sarah wants a dog and Susie thinks it's because Sarah prefers chaos. New York City is trying to curb their rat problem by giving them birth control, but we have some logistical questions. A little boy who is obsessed with octopuses (octopi?) convinced his parents to let him adopt one, but it turned out their little spineless adoptee was with child, well children, 50 of them, and now they have a real aquatic problem on their hands. Martin Short has a new career in politics, and we are very excited about it, but he also has a new, very famous girlfriend, and this is the Hollywood It Couple we've been waiting for. A fashion house created pants that makes it easier for women to take matter into their own hands, if you know what we mean, and Susie is mad as a hornet about it. Her prudish side is in full force along with her Larry David-esque frustrations toward the man who did full downward dog yoga at her airport gate. Plus, we hear why Chechnya banned ballads...

804: Totality Awesome, Goat Custody Battle, & Conjoined Twins

We are still recovering from our reunion in Pittsburgh and Philly, and we're sharing our adventures at WrestleCon, seeing the eclipse, and having a girls road trip. Susie talks about an investigation into a little girl who raised a goat for the 4H club, begged to have its life spared from slaughter, and then someone killed it during the investigation. We debate whether she had a right to keep the goat. We learn a new trend sweeping the nation where people collect sticks (yes, sticks) and try to find the "stick of the month." We discuss the Brandy Mellville documentary, the perils of fast fashion, and the creeps pulling the strings at many fashion houses. We talk about the conjoined twins, the marriage of one of them, and the unusual circumstances they are in with regard to DNA, child-bearing, relationships, and more. Plus, Susie is wound up (twenty years later) about the Sigfried and Roy Las Vegas show.

803: Open Toes, Jail Eclipse, & Liquid Gold

Today we hear about Sarah's experience at a comedy show where she sat next to, ugh, a friendly man. Heaven help her. And Susie got to check another comedy legend off her bucket list of shows to see. Sarah tells us some good news about organ donation as some people would like to incentivize live donation with money, but some people think that's a slippery slope that could have unintended consequences. We debate whether people should wear open toed shoes in the workplace. Some prisoners fought for the right to watch the eclipse, and we debate whether we think they should get this privilege (right?). Plus, we find out the ten most valuable liquids in the world, and why one seemingly ordinary liquid most of us have in our homes makes the list.

802: Middle Names, Beef Yogurt, & Vegan Donuts

Susie ain't getting any younger and she wants to prepare for the footwear of her future and find out why older gals wear flats. We learn about a man who has made it his job to pick up the excrement left by dogs on a hiking trail and shame their owners. We discuss the Steve Martin documentary and his storied career as a standup comedian and an actor, and debate whether he has some romance issues that need to be sorted. Susie found out another wild fact about her favorite movie and Interstellar and we can't quit laughing. We learn the importance of middle names and Susie is sure to offend with her hot take about certain styles. Folks are mad that their favorite yogurt was made from cows, and we are weirdly not sympathetic. Plus, we hear about a "vegan" bakery that sold Dunkin' donuts and pretended they were not from animals. Good times.

801: New York Punching, Magical Magnet, & Nickelodeon

Susie got injured on the high seas, but she wants everyone to know her injury was due to a rogue wave, not alcohol because she's had some mishaps lately and apparently in there's a name for this in the addiction recovery world. Sarah watched Quiet on Set, so we discuss the abuse allegations, toxic culture, and reasons it wasn't stopped. Sarah discusses the difficult transition from child to adult star. She tells us about a new magnet that can collect microplastics, and Susie is skeptical about its application and how it can be used on a mass scale. We find out a way technology is being used to help people who deal with hoarding and possibly OCD. We hear the results of a study that we're filing under "duh" about the benefits of having pictures of loved ones around your home. We debate what's really going on with these reports of men punching random women in New York City. Plus, we talk to Family Guy writer and former MTV VJ Damien Fahey about his career, love of music, and what he thought about that We Are The World documentary.

800: Feats of Strength, Hotel Takeover, & Time Travel

Susie watched the Nyad documentary and was inspired, but also was wondering, what makes her different from our friend in the hamster wheel who tried to cross the ocean. Not much. We discuss the woman who completed the 200 mile ultramarathon and described the mental trick she uses to do it called the "pain cave." Are these people self-centered or amazing athletes (or both??). We learn about the man who checked into a Manhattan hotel and never left and then somehow got ownership of the entire building. He is part genius, part madman, and we kind of love it. Kim Kardashian is in hot water over a knockoff artist's table she bought, and we're on team table. We talk about the surprising statistics we're learning thanks to DNA testing about the prevalence of family abuse, the pregnancies that result from it, and the ways the government is keeping adoptee's identities's secret. Plus, we hear about two professors from the early 20th century who claim they fell through a wrinkle in time and transported to another era, and why we think they're either full of baloney or actual time travelers, but we love them either way.

799: The Death of Babysitting, Prepositional Change, & Horse Dogs

Sarah talks about the history of babysitting, how it's changed, and why it's a thing of the past. Another sinkhole opened up, and this time it swallowed a man in his bed, and now we're traumatized. Sarah is playing video games that act as amazing couples therapy. A preposition with which you end a sentence can now be a preposition you end a sentence with! We discuss how the political identities of men and women are growing further apart as women become more progressive while men do not. Susie wants to know what the Roman Empire's Roman Empire is and Sarah wants to explain why horses are big dogs. And we don't think you should eat people, but HYPOTHETICALLY if you ate a human, where would the tastiest people be from (see how we ended that with a preposition?)...
