This husband and wife duo (Melissa Rycroft Strickland and Tye Strickland) tackle relationships, family, pop culture and of course Reality TV in a hilarious and logically irrational way. She’s a TV Personality, and he’s an Insurance Agent who is obsessed with pop culture (that’s a lie), and together their unfiltered approach to life is pure entertainment.

Episode Date
29: Back Peddling and Bachelorette Reunions
Sooo….it was a controversial week for Melissa. What started off as an opinion shared on social media spun into a whole shaming frenzy. Even Wendy Williams had something to say about that Melissa Rancroft. Well, Melissa gives her thoughts on all the drama, and clarifies what she was even trying to say in the first place. But one thing is for certain: She totally underestimated her irrelevance in society. And this was also the week of the Bachelorette Reunion on ABC. Melissa and Tye talk about how awkward it is when the infamous ‘Bachelor breakup clip’ comes on tv while they’re watching it together. They also get into some of the random secrets people were asking about the franchise. Did anyone else catch the Ted Bundy drama that premiered on Netflix this weekend? Even Zac Efron couldn’t sway Melissa’s opinion about this one. Episode Sponsors: Fitish - Get free shipping at Fitish.com with code IRRATIONAL at checkout

28: Drive-Thru Etiquette and Reality Divorces
Melissa and Tye start by talking some Teen Mom news - but they keep it short and simple, to get to the good stuff!! Like when people in front of you in the drive-thru order the whole menu. Or when you randomly hurt a part of your body without knowing what you did. And the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After premiered, and Melissa and Tye are conflicted. Are the relationships real? And what happens when they break up? Because…rumor has it, several of them already have!! Shhhh….And let’s talk some FRIENDS! Because it’s the best show ever! And ending with the new Bachelorette Reunion promo!!  Episode Sponsors: Fitish - Get free shipping at Fitish.com with code IRRATIONAL at checkout Rothys - Go to Rothys.com/IRRATIONAL

27: Lottery Winners and Boy Band Mania
From #FreeBritney to the BoyBandCon, this episode ended up being a complete homage to the 90’s generation of Pop Entertainment. Melissa and Tye get into what they really think is happening with Britney Spears right now, and why they don’t believe the whole #freebritney movement. And what would you do if you won $360 million dollars?? Split it with the girlfriend who bought tickets with you?? Melissa and Tye talk about this real life situation happening right now with the winner of the 3rd largest lottery winning ever. And keeping with the Pop Music theme, they talk about the new documentary out on YouTube called BoyBandCon from Lance Bass. Can you imagine a world where the largest bands in America make $10,000 a year?? Oh the controversy. And what a way to end: with a round of Guess The Lyrics: Boy Band Addition! A listener calls in and tries to prove her loyalty to the 2000 era of Boy Band music….

26: Hunky Lumberjacks and Reality TV Curses
Melissa and Tye went to a country music concert this past weekend. The concert ended up not being the main show however, as Melissa tells the real main event of finding out her husband is a lumberjack who was getting pursued by a not-so-sober woman.   And a listener question to the couple raised a very good topic of conversation: Why do Reality TV personalities always seem to separate or divorce? Melissa and Tye get into their thoughts of why so many TV couples fall prey to the Reality TV Curse.  And who doesn’t love some girl talk?! Melissa has lunch with a couple of her girlfriends, and they play a game of 2 Truths and a Lie. Play along....!

24: Celebrity Meltdowns and Bitter Exes
The leaked audio of Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s off camera meltdown surfaced this week, and sent Melissa and Tye down memory lane, revising other times celebs got caught with a hot mic on!   And RHOBH has been pretty boring this season. Except Denise Richards, who’s cluelessness and Tequila indulgence steal the show! The Married at First Sight reunion aired, and what we thought would be juicy, was just awkward and uncomfortable. There was definitely some bittnerness that came to the table. And unbeknownst to many, Tye is a know-it-all of Chick Flicks and Rom Coms from the early 2000’s. Podcast listener, Lisa from Tennessee joins the fun in a fierce competition, to see who will take the title of Chick Flick Connoisseur! (She has apparently appeared on 7 other game shows, so Tye has his work cut out for him…)

23: Vacation Injuries and Bachelorette Reunions
Another VEGAS getaway!! Tye got a mysterious sprained ankle, and Melissa burned her thumb…but they were still in Vegas, so there’s that. And with the ever popular Bachelorette Reunion filming this week, the duo takes a look back at Bachelorettes Past, and some of the best moments of the franchise. (Eeeesss ok). A listener shares her concerns about a recent job promotion, because it means she now makes more than her husband does. Melissa and Tye get into the financial struggle of a married couple.  Episode Sponsors: Rothy’s - Go to Rothys.com and enter IRRATIONAL to get your new favorite flats and free shipping"

22: Belated Movie Reviews and Couples Fights
So this past weekend, Melissa and Tye watched A Star is Born for the first time (no judgement!), and it only took them 6 hours to watch it with the kids in the house! Melissa did not like it, and Tye tried to interpret the whole thing. That and the series YOU was not a big hit in the household. And one of Melissa’s pet peeves?? An entitled Millennial! Private jets and assistants?! (Insert eye roll). And the couple talks about fights in a relationship - and those times you say things you shouldn’t have. And speaking of entitled Millennial, they take a question from a listener about this very thing…  Episode Sponsors: Rothy’s - Go to Rothys.com and enter IRRATIONAL to get your new favorite flats and free shippin

21: Email Trolls and Negligent Parents
Melissa gives a **BOOB UPDATE** on her recent surgery, and share’s a letter of concern she received on social media (actually, it was just flat out hate mail). Everyone knows how much Tye wants another baby, so Melissa finally agreed! LIES! She got him a puppy instead!! Who needs a newborn baby in the house, when you have a 3 month old Pomeranian?? And during her recovery, Melissa went down the rabbit hole of the new Netflix series out about Madeleine McCann. The couple talks about parental responsibilities, and who is to blame in situations like these. And they end on a light (well, if breakups are light…) note with Part 1 of the Temptation Island finale!! I think it’s time to break up when someone tells you that you make them not want to have kids….on national television….  Episode Sponsors:  Daily Harvest - Go to DAILY-HARVEST.COM and enter promo code IRRATIONAL to get three cups FREE in your first box!  OpenFit - Text IRRATIONAL to 303030 to get a special extended 30-day free trial membership to Openfit

20: Bacteria Boobs and Bachelor Lust
So, Melissa had a big weekend - if only she could remember it! She ended up having surgery to remove some bacteria from her body, and also had a birthday. Neither of which she recollects at all. The couple then talks about the college scandal going down with Aunt Becky from Full House! Uncle Jesse never would have let that happen! And duh, they have to talk Bachelor finale. Tye still doesn’t like Cassie, but Melissa has a soft spot for her. And she also wins for calling the next Bachelorette!! Now, we just need to work on her speaking skills…And finally, ladies, what would you do if your man didn’t want you telling anyone you were ‘coloring’?? The couple talks about Married At First Sight’s Luke and Kate who find themselves in this very situation….And then Melissa has to go to bed, because she’s still on Valium….  Episode Sponsor: Daily Harvest - Go to DAILY/HARVEST.com and enter promo code IRRATIONAL to get three cups FREE in your first box!

19: Travel Disasters and Runaway Bachelorettes
This weekend Melissa took her daughter to Disney World for the weekend (the happiest and most magical place ever, right?!). Well, before the magical adventure began, she lost her cool at the airline ticketing counter, and almost got arrested. We all know how friendly and helpful the customer service desk can be, right? Continuing on discussing her trip, she talks about how hotel security had to come do a wellness check in their room, body count included. But they came home just in time to catch the fence jump heard round the world on The Bachelor. That, and one bachelorette freaks out because Colton said he was in love with her - I mean, why in the world would she want him to say that?!? You better believe Melissa and Tye have something to say about this one….  Episode Sponsors:  Rothy’s - Go to Rothys.com and enter IRRATIONAL to get free shipping with no minimum  OpenFit - Text IRRATIONAL to 303030 for a special extended 30-day free trial membership"
