    Not Like The Other Boys with Katy Fishell

    This week you’re lucky enough to listen to me literally fall in love with perfect angel comedian and artist Katy Fishell!! How special for us all. She’s telling me about her big middle to high school and slightly beyond crush, Tyler!! I know I always say this ep has got it all but boy oh boy this ep has got it all: a quarantine crush catchup, the power of a bowler hat, the possibility of swinging (jk?), the coveted “my friend thinks you’re cute”, late night 8th grade talking on the phone height of romance vibes, when you put someone on such a high pedestal you can’t even see them anymore, hot Chicago goss, destiny!!!, when affection feels like a miracle, why do some crushes liiiiiiterally haunt you??, status in relationships, meaningless sex, the lowkey drug of adolescent obsession, saying hey at the gig, recognizing when someone isn’t a villain but your feelings are still valid and soooooooo much more!! If you don’t listen I don’t understand you.

    Sitting In Cars With Girls (with Michael Blaiklock)

    Sitting In Cars With Girls (with Michael Blaiklock)

    Wow this week I’m feeling truly blessed to have tricked the very cool and nice and funny actor/comedian/tiktok star Michael Blaiklock into talking to me for like 2 hours during quarantine on my podcast!! He’s telling the stories of his Big Middle School Crush and the mortifying events that unfold when friends decide to take matters into their own hands, AND his Big High School Crush that involves an insane story where one of my favorite fanfic tropes actually happened? How did I get so lucky! This podcast shouldn’t be free. We’re talkin: facetime dates, how does one recognize mutual physical attraction virtually lol, the concept of “perfection” in dating, being a kid with a healthy fear of authority, a slow dance request, a lipsync battle, very public rejection, new romantic values, being a high school Shoulder To Cry On Guy, debilitating fear, oversharing on dates, low self esteem, the need to please, the little “what if” voice, feeling like you deserve nothing but also you DO deserve your crush, and SO MUCH MORE!!! This episode is so good.

Spoiler alert this story starts in middle school and ends……….just kidding you’ll have to listen to find out!! We’re talkin: being direct, ass sweat/hot pussy, trying to be the wrong kind of hot, a disappointing Bar Mitzvah experience, when something is declared as romantic and you stop being a person, when a crush represents a new world, will quar make people more dateable to Rebecca?, the PHYSICAL PAIN of being affectionate, when someone notices the parts of you that you like, first horny crushing, middle school romantic gestures, being Alt, being passive, slutty resolutions, when the braces come off and SO MUCH MORE!!

    Literally Just Some F*****g Guy with Caitie Delaney

    This week it’s honestly one of my favorite episodes of all time and it’s all thanks to writer and all around stellar person and friend, the hilarious Caitie Delaney!! I know that sounds dramatic but this episode is basically why I made this podcast??? To have convos like this?? It has EVERYTHING including Caitie’s 7th grade boyfriend and some integral high school crushes!! We’re talking: how sometimes an ex is just someone you had a crush on who didn’t date you, Logan Echolls, a Rebecca Sexting Update :/ , how other people see you in relation to who you’re dating/crushing, Jake Gyllenhaal who cares, teens having fun with cell phones, when people take little bits of you, society is against us dating actually, it’s hot when people don’t need you but think you’re cool, a Halloween joke gone right!!, it should be against the law for someone to keep living after you go on a date?, a shark idea (normal), and do we think 2020 can still be our year? Plus so much more god you’d be a fool not to listen.

So Charming!

I love it!

NickC-Bernie Boy ,

Helped me navigate my feelings about a crush 5/5

I’ve been a big fan for awhile but I never expected this podcast to actually interested with my real life. Until I reached an impasse with my actual classroom crush. I thought back to all the episodes I’ve listened to, and it really helped guide me through my feelings in a much more emotionally mature way than I would’ve able to do before listening. Anyway great show and I hope Rebecca brings it back for a third season in 2020!

Yellowcard?i think yes! ,

New Favorite!

Can’t believe it took me this long to discover this podcast! Rebecca knows all the right questions to ask her guests to create an engaging and hilarious pod. Much love 💛
