Welcome to Barely Thriving. The podcast where two girlfriends share their point of view on the latest in culture and how much it scares us. Your hosts Justine and Chanel cover everything from current events to questionable influencer sponcon to general life events that let you know we're thriving - but just barely.
Stupid Love and Stupid Boys
Justine and Chanel are not feeling the love in the air with the leak of Lady Gaga's "Stupid Love", Vanessa Hudgens' breakup, and our unrealistic expectations for a Brad/Jen reunion. We also chat our latest Netflix binges and Justine gives Chanel not-so-hot tips on how to approach dating on the apps.
Chanel watches Outlander. That's it. That's the title.
This week we discuss surprise album drops, Megxit, disappointing Oscar noms and even more disappointing Democratic candidates. Justine drags one of the contestants on the Bachelor and Chanel makes a very alarming admission about a television show she's now addicted to.
Nudes Save The World
We're back, baby! Justine and Chanel kick off the new year discussing the Golden Globes, the son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson who we've never heard of, and how nudes are going to save our planet while Goop simultaneously tries to destroy it. We also set our goals and intentions for the new decade!
The Cybertruck's windows are almost as broke as our bank accounts
Justine and Chanel discuss the Weeknd's new music, Disney disclaimers on questionable (read: racist) movies, Pete Davidson's naked body on the cover of Paper, and Tesla's horrific (read: hilarious) cybertruck reveal. It's now the holiday season so obviously we're talking about Harry Potter and magic.
Keanu Reeves gave us hope then TI brought us right back down
Justine and Chanel chat the Kylie and Drake rumors, Kidz Bop Karen, the evolution of slut-shaming and question why TI thinks hymens are still a thing or even any of his business. We also discuss the most taboo topic of all, which is not hymens but MONEY.
