Just Between Us is a comedic variety show where Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn openly discuss everything from mental health to sex and all the stuff in-between. Each week, they’ll answer a question from a listener seeking advice, interview someone fascinating, participate in a rarely winnable game show and discuss a random topic affecting the world. Jump from highbrow to lowbrow in a single episode! Sometimes multiple times! Nothing is off limits for these New York Times best selling authors who are trying to destigmatize the world one hilarious episode at a time. Produced by Forever Dog Podcast Network.
Handwriting Analysis with Graphologist Elaine Charal and HYPOTHETICALS
This is one for the books! Allison and Gaby have their handwriting analyzed by graphologist Elaine Charal, which is a 10/10 experience! They then learn all about the theories behind handwriting analysis and how it can help people better understand themselves. And finally, a rousing game of hypotheticals with even more alien talk than normal!
The "Right" Response to Heartbreak and Trigger Warnings
We are loopy in the intro to this one! Gaby and Allison get it together in time to discuss a listener's question about whether or not it's strange she isn't more upset following a breakup. Do you grow more cynical about love as you get older? Is it bad not to be devastatingly heartbroken by a break up? And finally, a listener writes in to call Gaby in about trigger warnings and the duo breaks down the need for them and how they'll be using them in the future. (Content warning: in Topix, we get into specifics on self harm. Please be advised.)
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. Plus, charting your cervical mucus and understanding your cervical mucus using cervicalmucus.org. (We love saying cervical mucus!) And lastly, erotic hand-holding and panic at a cruise ship buffet.
Dealing With Confrontation and Love At First Sight
First, Gaby and Allison talk about vaccines, lip fillers, gender dysphoria and not putting yourself into a box. (Love to ease you in!) 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.
