Hey! We are Ash and Katy, this is our podcast, Always the Last to Know! Growing up we were taught how to live in the world, everything was going fine…until literally, the entire world changed, thus making everything we had learned essentially obsolete. Needless to say, Mr. Feeny and Cory Matthews did not prepare us for social media takeovers, taxes, or making our way through an insane world where an entire generation is trauma bonded.

It feels like we missed entire lessons on things so the goal is to fill in the gaps of our education- from discussions on current laws to clones, from N.A.T.O to what's hidden under melting glaciers, join us while we attempt to navigate our way through the world, figure out adulthood, and hopefully learn something new along the way!

The amount of research put into each topic is always astounding. The delivery of all details and facts is perfect. The easiest listen for any subject.

Nothing Less Attractive Than Foul Mouthed Ladies

If you want to listen to young ladies gratuitously spewing profanity (especially every possible variation of the “F” word) this is the podcast for you.

love love love

absolutely loving these deep dives on icons from the past. was originally hooked when the cleopatra episode dropped, tripped further into my obsession when the JFK triathlon blessed my eardrums. but hands down LOVE this deep dive on the beloved Norma Jean <3

i need a deep dive on a few things here ladies; Titanic, frank sinatra, van gogh, john lennon, elizabeth taylor, 9/11, chernobyl, - honestly i could go on forever bc i could listen to you 2 forever

feels like i’m sitting with my 2 friends chatting about our childhood obsessions (i was a cleopatra/JFK/Titanic girl) <3
