    Excuse My Grandma’s View on Codependent Relationships

    Excuse My Grandma’s View on Codependent Relationships

    Kim and Grandma Gail catch each other up on the latest in their lives, including Kim’s recent thoughts of what she’s experienced on dating apps. They discuss what to do if you match with someone on an app and neither person starts the conversation, or when a conversation is one-sided. Kim brings up the dating topic of codependency, both in a romantic relationship and with a family member (we may have decided Kim is codependent with grandma). They talk about setting boundaries and having date nights with yourself. Grandma and Kim end with answering questions from listeners, and they're answering the rest on Instagram if you haven’t checked them out on @excusemygrandma. And follow us on TikTok! Thanks for listening!

    Kim and Grandma Gail talk to Hannah Orenstein (@hannahorens), Editor of Dating at Elite Daily and author of the new novel ‘Meant to be Mine’ which follows a girl’s journey to find love as she follows a prophecy given to her by her grandmother. They talk to their guest about whether the idea of “fate” or “soulmates” is real, and how we're all affected by rom-coms. Grandma Gail thinks Prince Charming is a made up fairytale while Kim thinks he exists - even if he may not be perfect. They end with a ‘50s movie of the week.

    Excuse My Grandma’s Texting Advice (Ft. Ali f/ Finding Mr Height)

    Kim and Grandma Gail talk to dating coach Ali Jackson, the creator of the TikTok @findingmrheight and co-host of the Finding Mr Height podcast. We talk all about dating this week, including our thoughts on dating tall vs. shorter guys. Ali shares some of her “text scripts” which she has on her website on how to respond over text to any situation. For example, how do you respond when someone cancels a date last minute, and what should you text instead of ghosting someone? As always, we end the episode with a game of Grandma Gail’s Old Fashioned Dating Quiz and a 1950’s movie of the week.

Enjoyable Duo

I really enjoy this duo. It’s awesome to see family generations working together and accepting differing viewpoints and perspectives. A really feel-good podcast!

Need better guests

Love Kim and Gail but please have more normal guests on not so many kooky meshugina people. Just normal Jewish women etc. what makes this podcast good is your dynamic- the podcast could even be better if it were just you two talking about dating or marriage now vs then. We don’t need all these progressive lunatics on the show.
