    Yoga Is Boring and Other Unpopular Opinions

    Yoga Is Boring and Other Unpopular Opinions

    This week Sami and Aleen are back to share some of their most controversial unpopular opinions. Carlie Rice (the girl behind DST’s Instagram) joins in to share some of the DST audience’s best (or worst, depending on if you agree) unpopular opinions. Are coed classes really better than all-female ones? And does choosing to stand in the front of the class really make you workout harder? They debate listener opinions about Sex and the City characters, the flavor of Nutella (kinda gross, tbh), and which Kardashian is the most likeable. Then Sami and Aleen take turns sharing some unpopular opinions of their own, including controversial takes on rosé, Adam Driver’s hotness, and more. Finally, they offer some Non Scale Wins and read a listener story all the way from England about learning to enjoy running again.

    Stop Trying To Reach A “Goal Weight” Ft. Emily Gellis

    Stop Trying To Reach A “Goal Weight” Ft. Emily Gellis

    Sami and Aleen are joined this week by NYC influencer Emily Gellis to talk about her own personal health journey. They start out talking about her childhood and eating like a kid (which, aren’t we all in quarantine tbh). She tells us which fad diets she’ll never do again, and how yo-yo dieting has been a constant issue in her life. Next, they talk about the ways social media affects us mentally and emotionally, and discuss the stigma around taking antidepressants. Why are people so hesitant to share their mental health struggles publicly? Emily gives some tips for dressing to feel good about yourself, especially during quarantine, and how it impacts your self esteem and confidence. Then they talk about the allure of a “goal weight” and why we need to just let that whole concept go. Finally, they each share a Non Scale Win of the week and talk about why we need to make a collective mental shift in the way people use their public platforms.

    This is Why Your Dreams Are Weird AF Right Now Ft. Dr. Deirdre Barrett

    This is Why Your Dreams Are Weird AF Right Now Ft. Dr. Deirdre Barrett

    This week Sami and Aleen are joined by dreams expert Dr. Deirdre Barrett, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, to talk about why our dreams have gotten so f*cking weird since the pandemic took over our lives. They start with a chat about how dreams actually work, and why keeping a dream journal could unlock the meaning behind your anxiety. Dr. Barrett shares her opinion on the representation of dreams in movies like Inception, and tells us where some of our dreams actually come from… turns out you’re not the only one thinking about bugs while you sleep (and not the murder hornet kind). Plus, she fills us in on just how many times we dream each night and what it all means. Then Aleen and Sami take over and reflect on their own quarantine anxieties of late. Is anyone actually ready to go outside when this long national nightmare finally ends? They tell us why enjoying your food during lockdown is actually more gratifying than obsessing over it, and close the show with a DST-community Non Scale Win of the week.

    Adele Lost Some Weight And Everyone Went Nuts

    Adele Lost Some Weight And Everyone Went Nuts

    On this surprise Friday episode, Sami and Aleen are back to share their instant reaction to Adele’s recent Instagram post and the viral response to her weight loss. Are you more surprised by those celebrating her transformation, or those that are criticizing her for it? They speculate about the weird IG photo setup (was this for a wedding or a birthday) and discuss how a compliment reveals what you inherently value in a person. But in a world that makes us feel like sh*t about our weight, is it any surprise that everyone is obsessing over this? Plus, they talk about the so-called miracle diet that’s already marketing itself as the secret behind her weight loss, discuss their reaction to this photo in comparison to how they might’ve reacted in the past, and sing for us one of their favorite Adele songs of all time.

We get an exciting update about Sami’s wedding re-planning process. Then they answer some of the listeners’ most random questions, including which Disney princess is best (leading to a shocking confession about never watching Moana). Plus, they debate one of the most important dessert questions of all: is ice cream better served hard or soft? Finally, they discuss a thoughtful Non Scale Win about the pursuit of perfectionism.

    These Are A Few Of Aleen And Sami's Favorite Things: Part One

    These Are A Few Of Aleen And Sami's Favorite Things: Part One

    Sami and Aleen are back this week for PART ONE of the favorite things episode. They start the show by telling us what it means to be “all caked out”. Is it possible to kick a dessert addiction? Then they dive into a list of audience-submitted questions about Sami and Aleen's favorite things, starting with the one thing you should splurge on for your home, and we learn how Sami made a questionable purchase of a kit of scent samples in a quest to find the "right scent" for her home. Blame it on quarantine. Next, they share the books that changed their lives, their go-to recipes, and they try and fail to get through a conversation about what they're watching without going deeper on the Sopranos than anyone asked them to. Next, they talk about what the future will be like with everyone wearing masks, what masks they're buying, and describe how they’re approaching quarantine safety precautions. Finally, they share their nighttime routines and admit to some strange tendencies.

Sami and Aleen feel like my bffs

I’ve been listening since the start and I cannot believe I’ve never left a review!! This podcast has become my personal favorite self soothing tactic 😂I find myself relistening to my favorite episodes (basically the ones that Jordan Syatt is on) when I need inspiration after feeling low about progress or if I need a mood boost. I feel like Sami and Aleen are my friends, you guys are so funny and I love the episodes where it’s just you two!! Thank you for the gift of this podcast, it’s the BEST.

Favorite Podcast!

This is my favorite podcast! It’s so inspiring to hear that two hugely successful women also struggle with all of these issues like body dysmorphia. I love how you bring in experts and we get to hear tons of different perspectives.

Consistent Listener

I really enjoy listening to this podcast every week, some episodes more so than others. I gave a 3/5 star review because the last episode amplified my biggest problem with this podcast, which is Sami bringing up her personal issues in what feels like nearly every episode. The knocking her mom because she was late to Sami’s therapy appointment and Sami never asks her to attend them, coupled with just multiple complexes while they had a guest on (who I wanted to hear more from) is just not what I personally want to hear all the time. Getting vulnerable and intimate is important to engage your audience, but not every episode needs to be a therapy session.
