    Hello babies!
    On today's very special episode, Emily and Lisa have some important news to share about the fate of Baby Geniuses and share some special memories. On Chunch Chat, the origin of the name "Timothy" is discussed. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "List of potato museums," a list of potato museums around the world.

    Edward Dando

    Edward Dando

    Hello babies!

    Do you have Wonka Fever? We no longer do! He's simply not mean enough to children anymore. On Chunch Chat, we come to the conclusion that Martha absolutely manages her own social media accounts. Also, The Rock hasn't been completely honest with us. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Edward Dando," a thief who came to public notice in Britain because of his unusual habit of overeating at food stalls and inns, and then revealing that he had no money to pay. Although the fare he consumed was varied, he was particularly fond of oysters, having once eaten 25 dozen of them with a loaf and a half of bread with butter.

    Hello babies!
    A very Merry Christmas to all the Bougie Grinch Girls out there! A not so Merry Christmas to the worms that are trying to enter Emily's house. Related: we dig up dirt on certain Selling Sunset stars. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Humbug," a person or object that behaves in a deceptive or dishonest way, often as a hoax or in jest.

    Spitting

    Bark Mitzvah

    Bark Mitzvah

    Hello babies!
    Lisa is back from New York with a new obsession and Emily blows off a little steam about a less than sexy period drama. On Chunch Chat, Martha struggles with a mistaken identity and falls for an invasive species. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia article for "Bark Mitzvah," which is either a tongue in cheek celebration for beloved pets or a desecration of a cherished Jewish tradition.

Love this podcast

So sad that they’re taking a hiatus, but I have loved this podcast so, so much. The older episodes are definitely worth a listen if you’re finding this for the first time. Just two fantastic ladies having terrific conversations.
