A semi-regular-ish podcast about The Good Place, imaginary froyo flavours, friendship, and how to become a better person.
Episode 1.13 Other People
You did it! You made it to Episode 13! Your prize is... this episode? Congratulations! We're talking about The Good Place Season 1 Episode 13, "Michael's Gambit," and asking whether or not hell actually IS other people. The answer may surprise you. We're also bringing back all our favourite segments for this special season finale. Return guest James "Jim-Jams" Faulds wants you to rethink your relationship to social media, but Hannah just wants you to consume MORE media, and honestly, who are you going to listen to, someone named Jim-Jams or the person writing these episode summaries? That's what I thought.
Episode 1.12 Save It for Therapy
Oh no! It's almost over! This is the dozenth episode, and we're talking about The Good Place Season 1 Episode 12, " Mindy St. Claire." Also: moral neutrality, getting over the past, and Sexy Things. Guest Wendy Wan and Hannah BOTH have podcast recommendations, which you should absolutely listen to after you're done consuming this one.
Episode 1.11 Moral Calvinball
Are you ready to talk about values, intentions, and making mistakes? Too bad, because that's what we're doing. We're also talking about The Good Place Season 1 Episode 11, "What's My Motivation." Guest Katie Shocrylas has a pet care suggestion, and Hannah finally has something to suggest that isn't a book, so you have that to look forward to!
Episode 1.10 Big Choices
In this episode, we're talking about The Good Place Season 1 Episode 10, "Chidi's Choice," and answering the age-old question: how do you make a Big Life Choice? Also, you're about to hear Hannah's favourite ever segment stinger, so gird your mother-forking loins. Guest Lucia Lorenzi has a tip for handling yourself with care, and Hannah has MORE BOOKS... ugh why is she LIKE this?
Episode 1.9 Casual Trauma Pals
Warning: this episode is SPICY! We're talking about The Good Place Season 1 Episode 9, "... Someone Like Me as a Member," and we're blaming our parents for all of our problems. We are also cramming an astonishing number of segments into a single episode, so brace yourselves. Guest Cynara Geissler has a recommendation for dealing with stress, and Hannah has a seasonal eating habit to suggest. Is that eating habit spicy? No, the spice was metaphorical, and also inside you the whole time.
Episode 1.8 Ethics Through Osmosis
We're past the halfway mark now, and you can really tell that we've figured out how to use our microphones (brag). We're talking about The Good Place Season 1 Episode 8, "Most Improved Player," all while debuting a new segment, probing the links between morality and comedy, and figuring out if there's such thing as good and bad people. Guest Zander Chila has a musician AND an attitude to recommend, and Hannah has some more homework cuz she's fun like that.
Delighted Sad Edified
Delighted to have found a rewatch pod for a show I found so chewy. Sad there isn't yet more episodes to help me recover from my good-because-heaven upbringing. But also objectively a better person for having encountered it. Thx Clairs and Hannah!
Are you kidding me? This is perhaps what all podcasting in the history of podcasting has been leading to. 11 out of 11 shrampies for such a smart-brained pod.
