    Salmon Chaos

    Hello babies!

    What a week! On today's episode, Emily tracks a package and Lisa spills some soup. On Chunch Chat, the segment about Martha Stewart's pony Ban Chunch, we read some listener submitted business names. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Salmon Chaos, a very recent event where people changed their names to get free sushi. Rob Salmon has a nice ring to it and I have no regrets.

    Hello babies!

    Thank you for listening to this show, even if you just love falling asleep to the sound of our voices! On today's episode, Emily shares a strange experience with a neighbor, and Lisa has a frightening horse experience. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "List of CB Slang," a great guide if you're an aspiring Alligator Station (look it up)!

    Loveland Frog

    Hello babies!
    Now that the possibility of a safe Halloween is on the distant horizon, Emily has started planning her couple's costume. She also shares some of her thoughts on the very bad comic Heathcliff. Lisa shares her thoughts on an issue of a magazine. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Loveland frog," a legendary man-sized frog in Ohio folklore.

    Billiken

    Hello babies!
    On today’s episode, Lisa shares about her upcoming surgery, as well as thoughts on Australia’s penis owl. Emily's dog Alan is out of surgery and has a racy new outfit. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Billiken, a charm doll created by an American art teacher and illustrator, who is said to have seen the mysterious figure in a dream. I don't like the way it looks.

    Australia's Big Things

    Australia's Big Things

    Hello babies!
    Sometimes it feels great to pack up and go for a hike with your feline companion. Sometimes you just want to practice your whip technique. All is fair game in Griffith Park! On today's episode, Lisa shares some stories from the trail, and Emily's dog eats maybe a nut or a stone fruit pit. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Australia's big things," a loosely related set of large structures, some of which are novelty architecture and some are sculptures. This list is incomplete as it does not include Paul Hogan's knife.

Genius!

Lisa and Emily are very funny and charming. Emily’s stand up joke specials are great and I highly recommend Lisa’s books if you like comics (even if you don’t actually.) Plus horses!

Wanted to love but don’t

Emily Heller is just about the most hilarious human on the planet when in conversation with Jon Lovett. I just want more of her. Her cohost here is clearly a super nice and interesting person but their chemistry makes Emily’s funny fall flat. I’ve only heard one episode but it’s such clear issue that I’m not willing to try another. 😕

It’s sad that this podcast got bad

I used to really love this podcast, I’ve listened to every episode and they were really great. I found them both really relatable and funny, but over the past year the podcast got bad. They don’t seem connected anymore, what they talk about is less interesting and they don’t go as deep into anything. I don’t know what changed, but it really seems like they don’t care or like doing this podcast anymore. It also seems like their connection with eachother has decreased, which is sad. I hate listening to an episode and then being so they like eachother still? Are they still friends or are they pretending? If the podcast ran its course then that’s what happened, don’t force it with inauthentic conversations.
