Fertility Awareness and Natural Birth Control with Megan McNamara and HYPOTHETICALS
mara (@famtasticfertility) about fertility awareness, natural birth control, being in control of your body, and how to effectively do the Fertility Awareness Method.

They then give a listener advice on being conflict avoidant and what to say when you're being called in or confronted. And lastly, Melisa, Gaby and Allison break down love at first sight and why it makes Gaby so riled up. She really hates it!
Finance, Work, and Mental Health with Tony Verheyen and Hypotheticals
First, a fan makes an incredibly accurate parody video of the Just Between Us podcast that really tickled us. (Go check it out on @serenapalmer_ on Instagram.) PS: Make us more fan art! Then, Tony Verheyen, author of In Our Reach, joins us to talk about mental health at work and employee benefits for your physical, mental, and financial life. Plus, how the heck do you ask for a raise? Lastly, hypotheticals! Tony is very zen about whether or not his mother-in-law is an alien or rude. Very zen.
Handling Academic Rejection and Our Goals For The Future
First, some adorable stories about Allison and Gaby's attention-loving grandmothers and the tributes they deserve. They then offer advice to a listener whose self-identity is tied to her academic achievements. And finally, goals! Melisa joins in for a lively discussion of what all three hope to accomplish some day soon. The list includes paying off debt, buying a bow and arrow and not being so loud.

Is that a snake in your toilet?! Maybe!

A Timeline of Achievement and Re-Entering Society
Gaby starts the episode by bringing up some nuance they'd previously ignored regarding mental illness and the pandemic, especially when it comes to high school and college students. Allison and Gaby then answer a listener's question about obsessing over a timeline of achievement and feeling like a late bloomer compared to others. And finally: re-entering society and all the anxiety, stress, and excitement that comes with it. (Allison worries about her contamination OCD raging out of control. While Gaby wants to dance to Gaga in WeHo and maybe spit in people's mouths, much to Melisa's horror.)
