A community for people who hate leaving the house but also want friendship. Talking about things we find fascinating or don't understand and almost certainly getting completely sidetracked along the way with well, tangents.

Episode Date
We'll threaten your mental illnesses - Emotional Intelligence
This is that type of episode where our emotions get too emotion-y. Getting back to what we love to talk about this week & weeding our mind gardens. We know we’re all people who struggle being people and in this episode we enter the world of Emotional Intelligence. We’re learning that by being able to recognize, label and regulate our emotions, we can take back control of the things that feel like they’re controlling us.

If you are able- please consider donating to organizations that are providing aide to our friends in the south-

Newlywed Game! - *BONUS* Valentines Day Episode
For Valentine's Day, we gently encouraged our significant others to be on the podcast with us. We played the Newlywed Game and still have no idea if there were really any winners at all. You'll have to tell us!

Hun, you're the cat's mom - Bad First Dates
Happy Valentine's Day, friends! This week Jeri & Ciara deep dive into Reddit's finest first date stories. We're talking mushrooms, we're talking, sociopathic behavior, we're talking cock...roaches. There's also a pretty decently long tangent about how we don't understand how wood works. Feel free to let us know what's up with that in the comments!

Artist, Criminal - Sharing Your Judgements
You guys sent in your judgements and we reacted to them! We talked last episode about how the first thought we have about something or someone isn't our fault. What we consume in the media coupled with the societal normals that are drilled into our heads since the moment we open our tiny, gooey eyes shape the way we view the world around us. Our second thought? THAT IS our responsibility. It is important to attack these thoughts. It is important to challenge our assumptions. It is important not to let stereotypes dictate our perception of others. By acknowledging that we have implicit bias, preconceived notions and judgments we can start to chip away at the source and re-train our brains to see the world through more compassionate, understanding and empathetic eyes. All these big words and we still somehow ended up talking about butts.

Some serious mental gymnastics - Counterproductive Habits of Mind
In this episode we apply some college writing wisdom to our everyday lives. We discuss how implicit bias and judgements can impact the way we interact with people and view world around us. Reading this makes it sound like we're going to be more well spoken than we actually are...we definitely still talked about poop in this one.

Our money comes from your success, no pressure - Fixed vs Growth Mindsets
On today's episode we talk about how just a few little words can change the entire course of someones motivation, determination, resilience and self worth. Little heavy for a Tuesday morning? Oh well- chances are, if you're like us, you've experienced the crippling anxiety of feeling like a failure or fear of not reaching your potential and we're going to tell you how this type of thinking isn't your fault and can be changed! Just a little shift in thinking and approaching problems more like a ball and less like an egg. Speaking of eggs…Jeri also eats dinner and gives a little asmr somewhere along the way. People gotta eat, we’re all friends here.

I saved that goat's life - Weird Work Stories
You sent in your weird work stories and we reacted to them! From sperm, to shampoo bottles, to punches- you shared the bizarre and memorable moments you have experienced on the job.

Go to school, go to church, & help somebody - Stacey Abrams & Voter Suppression
2 years after losing the Governor’s race in Georgia, Stacey Abrams made it her mission to educate people about free and fair elections, registering 800,000 new voters in the state of Georgia. Her grass roots efforts to share the message of voter suppression and mobilize a new age of informed, confident voters turned Georgia blue for the first time in decades. In this episode we share about Stacey’s message of the importance of voting and making your voice heard in every election. We summarized her documentary, All In: The Fight for Democracy, but to get the full impact, we really encourage you to watch it yourself. Just because the election has been certified, the job isn’t done and we can all do more to help move towards free & fair elections with laws that protect the actual integrity of our democracy and ensure equal representation and opportunity for all.

I like to put snail slime on my face - Superstitions
How we went through 50 superstitions and never mentioned black cats is truly a mystery. This week we dive into superstitions from around the world and are slightly afraid that we started off 2021 on an unlucky foot. We were just trying to give you guys tips on what to avoid to make sure your 2021 is smooth sailing. Speaking of feet- you’re gonna want to get yourself a rabbits foot.

One could argue this was my year - 2020 Reflection
Bringing you 2020 reflections from your favorite dirty-b*tch soothsayers. We originally recorded our 2020 New Years episode with the hopes of revisiting our resolutions on the episode entering 2021. Upon listening back, we realized we may have accidentally manifested some chaos and we’d like to formally apologize. Please enjoy us listening to ourselves be big, dumb idiots for half an hour, followed by some *hopefully* better forecasting for 2021. Thank you guys for being with us during the most wild year of our lives- we love you like family! Happy New Year!

If you’re going to make feminine products more expensive, could you make sure you close the wage gap first?

In addition to this literal tax, we highlight some metaphorical pink taxes. Big shoutout to Scotland for making feminine hygiene products free, because we out here and we bleedin’.

I'm laughing because I'm hurting - Vulnerability
“We were two grown, adult cousins together in a bath tub-that wasn’t even the part I was ashamed of!” This week we’re continuing the conversation around shame and guilt and introducing their sibling, vulnerability. We just want to take a minute to tell you all how much we appreciate you letting us stand on the porch and perform for you each week. This little community means the world to us and we hope that you all know how valuable you are and how worthy you are of absolute, unconditional love. Be kind to your mind today and always!

Weedin’ my mind garden- Bonus Check In
We weren't done checking in and wanted to continue our mental health conversation with more personal vulnerable experiences to remind everyone that we definitely don't have our stuff together.

Do you see how united even my body is rn? - Mental Health Check In
*Trigger Warning* On this week’s episode we will be talking about things that may induce panic or trigger past trauma, specifically in relation to depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and unhealthy relationships. If these are topics you may have a negative response to, please listen with caution or skip this week!

If you’re tired of political talk- skip ahead 30 minutes! I know, I know “30 minutes?! That’s half the episode!” You’re right- and that’s why part 2 of the mental health episode will be coming Friday! This year has been hard and we’ve been feeling the weight of it. We talk a lot about our experiences with mental health but haven’t ever checked in while we were actively battling anxiety and depression- so here is our attempt at that!

Don’t be weird about it, put your head in my trough - Halloween

Don't do spice at the ocean - Anniversary Episode
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, FRIENDS! We cannot believe it’s been a year since we started recording our conversations. The last year was unexpected in every way and we feel so lucky to have an audio journal of it all. We have no plan for this episode, we just want to celebrate.

We talk Gilmore Girls fast and serpentine the conversation like you’ve never experienced- there may have been drinks involved....Thank you all SO much for hanging with us every week. We love you all! C U NEXT TUESDAY!

Once made a purse out of dum dum suckers
If you’re anything like us, you’re obsessed with competitive tv. From love shows to bake offs and everything I’m between, we discuss the fascination of seeing people just like us eat a bull’s testicle for sometimes nothing more than bragging rights and air time. Along the way we head down memory avenue and get lost on nostalgia lane with some of MTV’s finest game shows.
Oct 20, 2020
I hate this, but I hope there's more - Fandoms
Indifference runs ramped in this episode about famous fandoms that took the 2000’s by storm. Choosing between Team Edward and Team Jacob was a right of passage in adolescence and we want to take us back to a time where choosing a side didn’t result in someone losing their rights. Play along and let us know which side of the pop culture aisle you find yourself on!

I've got no service here in 1942 - Time Travel
What do Harry Potter, Hamilton and Donald Trump have in common? Probably nothing except making an appearance together in our time travel episode. We discuss if time travel is possible, popular time travel stories & where we’d go if we cared enough to travel through time. As a special treat, Noah finishes the episode off with his thoughts on time travel. *Spoiler Alert! It’s a waste of time if there are no flying cars.

This one's for Ruth - Political Compass
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” On this episode of Ladies & Tangents, we take a political compass assessment to see where we lie socially and economically compared to some of the world’s most notable historic figures. During the recording of this episode, we lost an absolute legend in Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and we’ve dedicated this episode to her. We want to encourage everyone to take this test to help prepare for this year’s election. Voting has never been more important- let’s do the damn thing in November!

Find the test here!

Your brain dumb thick - Self Diagnosing
At this point, it should be clear that we love self diagnosing ourselves with things. WebMD is basically our homepage. On this weeks episode, we share two disorders that the internet has led us to believe we have- Misophonia and Dermatillomania. If you sounds can make you go from 0-angry in 2 seconds or you often find yourself struggling to stop picking at your skin, feel free to diagnose yourself too!

We're in a cyclical cycle of cycles - Hurry Sickness
If you find yourself searching for the shortest line at the grocery store, getting angry in traffic or frustrated waiting for your kid to put their shoes on- you may be suffering from a psychological disorder. We love self diagnosing and we’ve found another thing that ails us- Hurry Sickness. In this episode we discuss some ways to recognize and deal with Hurry Sickness how only we can- by finding meaning in the meaningless of life.

Everything was great, totally didn't get murdered - Travel Stories
This may not be the summer of trips and travel but that won't stop us from taking a stroll down memory avenue to retell some of our favorite vacation stories. Trauma plus time equals comedy, right?
Aug 18, 2020
We're going to play a game called "Clean my Room" - Birth Order Stereotypes
If you’re not first, you’re last...or you’re a middle- Ricky Bobby failed to acknowledge all the middle children, which they’re probably used to. This week we take a look at birth order and what traits tend to go along with your placement in the lineup. We’re both oldest siblings and after reflecting on some stories growing up, we’d like to issue a formal apology to our siblings for the trauma. We’re the worst!

How has anyone chosen me? - Love Languages
We’ve all heard of the 5 love languages, but did you know there are apology languages? We took the quiz so you didn’t have to! On this episode we share our results from the love language, apology and anger quizzes, along with stories from the last that helped shape our responses. You’ll also be taken on a Tinder Tangent along the way. We know, how millennial of us?

Dubstep opened the portal to hell - Ghost Stories
If you can make it through our 20 minute recap of the historical masterpiece that is Hamilton, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with stories of our experiences with the supernatural world. We had intentions of sharing some ghost stories from the web as well but got too scared after one. Highly recommend listening in the light of day with plenty of time for Schitts Creek after.

The safe word is apricot- Hospital Story-Time
Jeri learned the limitations of her giant pregnant body and landed herself in the hospital. This episode is full of thoughts and tangents brought about by 4 hours alone in a triage room and a sleepless evening in the hospital. We elaborate more on Wayfair and how we really feel about masks-because you know, everyone loves to tell you how they feel about masks.

One too many dumpings - Hey Ladies
From vagingles to bajangles and everything in between. We're answering your questions and giving advice on a Ladies & Tangents version of Dear Abby. If you feel like you're the only one sweating like crazy or wondered whether or not COVID will live in the word of Grey's Anatomy, you'll find the answers you seek and more in this ramblin' ass episode.

If there’s anything we’re entitled to it’s a mental health disorder - Millennials
We’ve seen the lists, we’ve read the tweets, we know what you think of millennials and we’re addressing them on this week’s episode. We’ve got boomers calling us entitled and Gen Z calling us alcoholics. We’re feeling like the middle child of generations right now and we just want to stand in unity with our millennial peeps out there navigating the most insane technological, economic, societal roller coaster that is our lifetime. Sending you all love, gushers and Lisa Frank folders!
Jul 07, 2020
If making things political was an Olympic sport, America would be like “hold my mask.” This week we’re flying a rainbow flag high to celebrate the last day of Pride month! We want to highlight the LGBTQAI+ community and all of the beautiful diverse people those colors represent by answering some frequently asked questions and sharing advice from individuals who have found a home in the rainbow community. We don’t know who needs to hear this, but we love you!

Tangents & True Crime - The Tulsa Race Massacre
On this episode of Tangents & True Crime, we are telling the story of the Tulsa Race Massacre. Never heard of it? We don’t blame you. One state official from Oklahoma calls the horrific event the state’s “dirty little secret.” Across the country, we are seeing people fight for “history” and the figures that are attached to the specific history that we’re taught, without realizing that so much of history has been kept quiet or omitted completely from curriculum. It is imperative that we learn these stories and that we re-tell history accurately to develop a full understanding of the impact that it has on today’s world.

Please don’t lose passion, motivation or momentum. Below are some petitions and organizations that support the BLM movement. Don’t let “learning & listening” become the new “thoughts & prayers.”

Let me plant my seed in you - Gaslighting
*Trigger warning. Abusive relationships and assault are discussed in this week’s episode.

Restrictions have begun to lift and we felt it was time to start recording in person again. Over the past couple months, Ciara has been dropping some new vocabulary and Jeri has been pretending to know what it is, specifically the term “gaslighting.” Most recently, we have seen it used in reference to the BIPOC, and we felt if there are people who can’t relate in that way, that we would discuss various situations that people experience gaslighting to help develop all of our understanding. From parenting to relationships and anything in between, we’re giving you examples of gaslighting and tips on how to heal from it.

As a black man in America, I'm tired - History, Reform & The Black Card w/ Nick Pryor
“You want equality for all. You want to stand up and put your hand on your chest and say this is the United States of America...we’re not united at all. This isn’t equal at all.” On this weeks episode, we talk to Nick Pryor, a black man from Pittsburgh, PA who settled down with his family in rural Ohio. Nick shares his perspective on what it means to be a black man in America and his hope for growth, accountability and change. We shared conversations about white-washed history, attachment to racially charged monuments and symbols and the importance of YOUR vote to move forward toward a more tolerant, inclusive and equal nation for ALL.

You can't bring change if you're not uncomfortable - White Fragility w/ Paige Eff
“That’s where the term ‘White Fragility’ comes from. It’s a person that wants to acknowledge that racism exists, but they don’t want to endure the stress or the discomfort of talking about it...they want to walk away from it...It’s the inability to endure the same stress about racial injustice that I have been feeling my whole life.” For this episode we sat down with Paige Eff, a mother, wife, future nurse and biracial black woman who reached out to share her story of growing up in a predominantly white town. We wanted to ask her some questions about her experience with racial injustice as a black woman and through our open discussion, she educated us about white fragility. She challenged us to ask ourselves tough questions surrounding our preconceived notions and assumptions about the black community. We hope you’ll listen with an open mind and challenge yourself to answer those same questions.

If you're silent, I could die - BLACK LIVES MATTER w/ Lauren TKO Rohan
This week we are using the mic to amplify a voice from the black community. Lauren TKO Rohan is a poet, lyricist, artist, rapper from New Jersey. She hates mayonnaise. She’s right handed and afraid of heights. She’s a Capricorn. She loves show tunes and cooking. She is UNAPOLOGETICALLY BLACK. She has been around the world and has graced numerous stages with her presence; including TEDxOrlando to perform a piece on identity. She’s incredible, but you shouldn’t need her resume to want to listen to what she has to say. We hope you’ll take some time out of your day to join the conversation and leave with a better understanding of this movement. “Not one more life. Not one more.” #BLACKLIVESMATTER

We're talkin' blue-footed boobies - NSFW Amazon Reviews
If you can make it through 20 minutes about birds, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with the NSFW content you’ve been asking for. This is round 2 of our Amazon Review guessing game and this time we’re reading reviews on products that most people keep in a drawer...except one fine customer who turned hers into a chandelier. You read that right. Happy Tuesday!
May 26, 2020
Perhaps there was an error made somewhere - Amazon Reviews
We found ourselves in lighter spirits this week and wanted to have a laugh for episode 33. Play along as Jeri reads various Amazon reviews and Ciara tries to guess the product they’re written for. It’s fun for the whole family! No complaints from grandpa! *just kidding. There’s a significant amount of curse words so not totally fun for the whole family. That was more just to set up the grandpa part, which will all make sense later...Kloveyoubye!

That's when I decided I was gonna kill people - Mother's Day
This one goes out to all the moms in any stage of life. We see you and we are grateful for you! We wanted to take this week to share our experiences with momming and as usual, give advice you didn’t ask for. As a special treat, in the beginning we took turns interviewing our kids to get the real tea on us as moms from their perspectives. We hope that wherever you are in your mom journey from starting to plan to empty nesting and everywhere in between that you feel seen and loved. You’re all celebrated in this club. Happy Mother’s Day!

This boat sucks, our kids deserve a better boat - Weird Gender Stuff
Skin care is gender neutral. Mental health is gender neutral. Insert anything here ____________, it’s gender neutral. We realized that color has gender and it got us spiraling into the world of weird gender stereotypes. Is this a rant? Is this an ad for hello fresh? Is this a plea to get McDonald’s to stop asking if my happy meal is for a girl or a boy? Give it a listen and you tell us.
May 05, 2020
You're not broken, you're different - Grief
It feels like a different world every time we talk. As things change, topics change and last minute we decided to discuss something we’ve all felt or are currently feeling - grief. We want to really make ourselves human and open up about our experiences with grief and help others to realize that it’s ok to grieve, no matter how big or how small. Pain is pain, grief is grief and you’re allowed to feel it.

He saw a manatee in the water and got a boner - Mermaids
On this weeks episode of “Shit No One Asked Us to Google” we’re taking you to the depths of the ocean to find the elusive part fish, part human, part....bird? Oh, you didn’t know that mermaids were once believed to be part woman, part birds? We’re giving you lots of fun knowledge today about these creatures and updates on the creatures Nick Cannon and Aaron Carter. Listen now because in 12 hours we turn to sea foam.

My body is a temple and I ruined it - Faith
Tis the season to revel in our anxiety and push ourselves to talk about something we’d otherwise avoid at all cost. No, not politics. We’re dodging that bullet either for another 6 months or another 4 years, we’ll find out. We’re talking about faith. There’s so much we don’t know and a lot we want to learn but we’re sharing our journeys with you today. We’re sharing different sides of the spectrum and answering questions that have always plagued us when it comes to the big G-O-D. Our goal has always been to provide real friendship and friendship isn’t always poop jokes and plucking our mustache. So here we are, baring our souls to you hoping you don’t hate us at the end. Ok, love you bye!

Tangents & True Crime - The Slenderman Stabbing
On this installment of Tangents & True Crime we finally tell you a story with a happy ending. We take you on quite the not so happy journey along the way, but in the end we have the heroine we've been longing for. The Urban Legend turned crime inspiration is sandwiched between two slices of chit chat about current quarantine life and Schitt's Creek. We still can't leave our houses so there isn't much else going on!

If you give me a bag of Swiss cheese, I'm going to think you're mad at me - Unpopular Opinions
For today’s bonus episode we bring to you our Unpopular Opinions! Facebook has become MySpace and bulletin quizzes are back, baby, and we’re hoppin' on that trend. We encourage you to turn this into your Friday night/day (what day is it?) drinking game. Drink every time we say piggy-back. Drink if one of us mispronounces a word. Drink every time you disagree with us. Drink every time we disagree with each other. Sip-sip hooray if you hear the word baguette. Raise your glass for 9/11. Chug if Jeri gets Ciara to flip her opinion. And as two sober people, we see you other sober people. Instead of an alcoholic beverage, grab yourself a nice tall glass of milk. Just kidding, milk is disgusting.

I went into this with questions and I'm leaving with more questions - Tiger King
The world has gone crazy for a man whose fringe collection would make John Wayne green with envy. We present to you a topic that needs no introduction. This week we go through episode by episode and recap the wildest ride we’ve ever been on. You know him, you love him, you may have voted for him for governor of Oklahoma - Joe Exotic THE Tiger King.

He had them Sarah McLachlan eyes - BONUS Q&A
Ask and you shall receive! What started as a mini once again became a full lengther. We decided to drop a bonus episode Q&A for you to do your puzzles to. We're thinking of all of you during this time and want to bring you some friendly, pointless conversation while you're stuck inside!

I'm a piece of shit because of the stars - Horoscope Birth Charts
We promised to bring you companionship without having to leave your house and this week is no different! On this episode of “we’re quarantined with google” we give you another peak inside our brains. Turns out, we’re pretty crappy people according to the planets. It’s not our faults though, it was written in the stars.

*Disclaimer* For the foreseeable future, Ciara and I are abiding by the suggestion of our government and the CDC and practicing social distancing. We will be recording future episodes remotely until notified that it’s safe to be within 6 ft of people again. We hope you understand!

Paddy Daddy sent the snakes out of Ireland - History of St. Patrick's Day
To try to create a humorous description to go with this episode feels in some ways wrong. This episode was recorded when restaurants were still open, when schools were still in session and social distancing was more a suggestion than a mandate and the conversation reflects that. We are aware of the heartbreaking stories and the gravity of the situation at hand. We are here to offer you a break from the news, the updated closures and the disappearing human connection so many people are feeling. We are so saddened by the rise in cases around the world and the impact this is having on our hospital staff and small businesses. We know we have listeners all over the country in varying levels of lockdown and we want to bring you all what we’ve always promised - friendship without having to leave your house. We know attending a St. Patrick’s Day celebration isn’t going to happen so we brought St. Paddy to you. We took this train of thought all the way to tangent town, and like always we’re happy to bring you along with us. Stay safe, everyone! We love you!

Someone's living in my walls - Urban Legends
From chain letters to Bigfoot and everything in between - this week we’re talking about Urban Legends. These stories are heavily circulated and modified from person to person. Think the game Telephone but make it Stephen King. We don’t know what compels people to keep these tales alive, maybe it’s tradition, maybe it’s maybelline. Whatever it is, we know who’s to blame...we’re looking at you Aunt Marie.

Rent should be cheaper in February, it's rude - Leap Day
We went back to our roots and started googling things that have never made sense to us and the Leap Day episode was born! We came to find that this ish is real boring but we did our best. There’s a lot of lunar and sun cycles and a lot of Romans eating grapes, but we ultimately came to the conclusion that time isn’t real and the calendar is trash. Speaking of trash...we round out this episode venting about the dumpster fire that is Love is Blind!

Tangents & True Crime - Elisa Lam
I hope you’re hungry! It’s the second scary sandwich from our monthly series Tangents & True Crime. This episode tells the curious story of Elisa Lam, a young girl who mysteriously went missing while on break from school in California. We tried our best to put some pieces of this puzzle together and we intend to keep our day jobs. Don’t worry if true crime gives you the creeps. Eventually we round this baby out and make it safely to Hogwarts. How and why did we get there? Good question, but half the time we don’t know how we get anywhere in these conversations.

He sewed me up right, you know what I'm sayin? - Pregnancy
HEADS UP! If you’re one of the people who thought, “I’m glad the oscars didn’t show that postpartum commercial. Who would want to see that?” Probably don’t listen to this episode. We went back to our faithful news source, Buzzfeed and found “25 Questions You Were Too Afraid to Ask a Pregnant Woman,” and we answered them! We didn’t hold back and got real real about the literal ups, downs, ins and outs of pregnancy. Why are we talking about this? OH because one of us is pregnant! Listen until the end for the gender and name reveal!

Enjoy it while you can and Happy Valentines Day from our families to yours!

Speaking of rabies... - The Weird World of Wikipedia
This episode is about 50% ladies, 50% tangents. If you're here for the wiki-wiki world of Wikipedia, skip ahead about 25 minutes, BUT if you're interested in hearing us attempt several Jewel songs, tell stories of strange things we did as children and roughly 7 minutes about raccoons, then play that ish from the beginning. At some point we do go through a couple articles of some strange borderline unnecessary Wikipedia pages. PS, if anyone can explain the Buffalo sentence to us, we'd be so appreciative.

Quantum physics stuff, string theories and all that - Deja Vu
Calling all knock-knee bimbos! We know you experience it, we all do. We’re talking about Deja Vu! Well, we get real tangent-y in this one, but there’s some Deja Vu talk sprinkled between our trips down memory avenue. There’s a little science, a little conspiracy and a whole lot of mispronunciations. Wait...have we done this before?

Everything's Fine! I'm LL Cool Joy - Inside Out

Tangents & True Crime - The Eriksson Twins
Move over Mary-Kate and Ashley, there’s a new set of twins in town! And we’re discussing any crime by dinner time. We are so excited to introduce to you our new reoccurring series that will be known as Tangents & True Crime. Once a month, we’ll be telling stories that fascinate, confuse and sometimes scare us. This week we tell you the bonkers story of Ursula and Sabina Eriksson, Swedish twins who share more than just their looks. If true crime isn’t your thing, fear not. We have buffered their story between humiliating memories of being mistaken for a boy that act as your New Girl episode after a scary movie. Grab some tea and share in this madness with us!

Did you just call me stupid? - Mandela Effect
Would you trust a memory that felt as real as all your other memories if other people confirmed that they remembered it too? Get ready to question everything from where the Statue of Liberty is actually located to the spelling of the popular children’s series, the Berenstain Bears. YEP. THAT ISN’T A TYPO. People are legit trying to convince us that the BerenSTEIN Bears never existed and it’s been BerenSTAIN the entire time. We’re not buying it, and we’re not the only ones. The Mandela Effect has people recalling brands completely differently and has hundreds of thousands of people remembering Sinbad in a movie that allegedly was never made. This glitch in the matrix is a little science, a little woo-woo and a whole lot of frustrating.

Still here! Guess we're in Hell! - Y2K
It's the end of the world as we know it....again! While the world is making lists of what tv shows, songs and trends are turning 20 in '20, we're recalling all the times that the world was expected to tend since we said goodbye to the 1900's. We're so excited to ring in the new year with all of you comforters and see what insanity the new decade has to bring! Cheers!

Pour one out for my homeboy, Jesus - History of Christmas
YUUUULE! The true history of Christmas has been a mystery for us and on this episode we reveal the source of some of the Christmas traditions we know and love today. Don’t shoot the messenger, but documented history states that Christmas may not have had such a wholesome beginning, even warranting a war on the holiday itself. This is a real history-vocab situation with a dash of celebratory mischief to get you in the spirit this season! Happy Saturnalia, all you Lords of Misrule!

I poop rocketed myself right into the sky - Dreams
“Dreams feel real when we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was strange.” Even if you’re like us and dissociating your way through life, your brain is storing everything in your subconscious. Scary, huh? Sometimes these memories will come back and take shape in the form of a a Sting Balloon or playing tag with Cher - whatever you dream, there’s a lesson to be learned. Or it’s one really knows.

That's the that - Q & A
So this is a story all! You sent questions and we answered. How long does it take our chin hair to grow? What do we really think of each other? How's Patricia? It started as a Q&A and somehow turned into a tutorial for the Britney Spears impression that you didn't ask for, but most certainly need. God bless and enjoy this week's taste for your ear holes.

Do you ever feel like life is a dream? Like the world is tilted and you could just float right off the edge? There’s a name for that and it’s a panic attack.

So slap on your dog filter and let us tell you about the syndrome you probably haven’t heard about, but almost certainly have - Imposter Syndrome.

Oh yeah, Martha? You're a freaking witch - Salem Witch Trials
In 1692, years after Columbus sailed the Ocean blue, some weird shit started happening in Salem, Massachusetts. After disease and war plagued the town of Salem, people started getting down with bewitchment...or epilepsy? We don't know. We weren't there. We're not experts in doctoring.
