After swapping flight stories, Nicole & Sasheer solve the mystery of the curtained seat on an airplane. They discuss rude rental car parking lot attendants, not being petty in 2020, walking funny, meeting LeVar Burton, childhood curiosity, and eye-crusties. Then, we read a fan explanation on chicken/eggs, and answer listener questions about being in a wedding your harasser is attending, when your best friend starts dating your old crush, getting your spouse to make friends, and balancing their friendship with the rest of their lives.    Email or call Nicole & Sasheer with your friendship questions at: nicoleandsasheer@gmail.com (424) 645-7003‬

After learning more about harmony, Nicole & Sasheer get to the bottom of what song has been stuck in Nicole’s head, and who in the world has the most octaves. They take a quiz to see which member of the Illuminati they are, run into a lot of complicated pronunciations, take another quiz to see what piece of Ikea furniture they are, and learn about Cousins Undercover. They answer listener questions about appearing on podcasts, and not yet meeting a friend’s serious boyfriend. Plus, a question from a 12-year old on how to deal with insecurity!    Email or call Nicole & Sasheer with your friendship questions at: nicoleandsasheer@gmail.com (424) 645-7003‬

“This is Best Friends - where we flush kids!” After discussing if NPR (aka - PBS for ears) is doing too much, we learn about “flooding,” childhood hairstyles, using the ladle with face cream, the iguana problem in Florida, Jillian Michaels’ negative comments against Lizzo, TLC’s new show Hot & Heavy, and sexy staring contests. Then Nicole and Sasheer answer listener questions about friends who won’t get a driver’s license, being an introverted friend, eating just cheese off of a pizza, and mixing friend groups.   Email or call Nicole & Sasheer with your friendship questions at: nicoleandsasheer@gmail.com (424) 645-7003‬
