If the little angel and devil from your shoulders ever hung out without you and made a podcast, this is probably what it would sound like. Equal parts wholesome and horrific, Mormon and the Meth-head is about one unlikely friendship. Jessa and Aaron have led two completely different lives. While Aaron was stopping strangers on the streets of Milan to teach them about Joseph Smith, Jessa was teaching dudes how to keister meth while blowing them in Arby's bathrooms across Portland. But as Aaron lets go of his strict Mormon lifestyle and begins his descent into the depravity of the secular world, Jessa acts as his ferryman, telling him about disgusting, hedonistic things he never could have imagined, like "butt stuff" and "coffee." And Aaron returns the favor, helping Jessa navigate new and foreign social situations like "accepting hugs from loved ones" and "having loved ones." In their respective routines, they each tackle the topics of love, sex, drugs, and alcohol, but with polar opposite perspectives. Audiences get to see their world through Aaron's naive, innocent eyes as well as through Jessa's bleary, bloodshot ones.

Don’t listen with headphones on ...

Just listened to episode 5 and I’m crying laughing at Jessa’s first attempt at alcohol at the skating rink ... piss funny! You two are just hilarious! Much love from the UK!

Funny & Real - you have to listen to this podcast!

I was recommended this podcast by a friend and instantly the name caught my interest after the first episode I was hooked.
Both Jessa and Aaron are hilarious and the way they bounce off each other has even had me laughing out loud whilst listening to them.
Aaron’s ability to share his stories regardless of how painful and deep they may be and Jessas amazing way of thinking and how she is able to show Aaron a different way of thinking is so refreshing.
Please listen to this podcast you won’t regret it

An absolute gem

Just finished the first episode and I am utterly engrossed. I already head some of Jessa's tales on other podcasts and was totally spell-bound, I didn't know how the mormon part would measure up, but they are a brilliant pair. I love this.
