    Ep 140: Stoned And Watching 90s Commercials With Sally Tamarkin

    I have a guest co-host this week! Oh, I Like That host Sally Tamarkin joins me to talk about the commercials that influenced us as kids, the products we desperately wanted to buy (the Talkboy, anyone?) and the ad jingles we still sing to ourselves 30 years later. Especially on a day like today, I cannot recommend this enough: Take a weed gummy and watch 90s commercials on YouTube. Thank you for coming to help me host, Sally!

    Ep 136: Grab Your Moto Razr, It's Kate Steinberg!

    Ep 136: Grab Your Moto Razr, It's Kate Steinberg!

    TikTok Star Kate Steinberg is here to talk all things Y2K. Amassing over 800k followers on TikTok and an additional 300k on Instagram, Kate has made a name for herself by performing those moments from our teen years that we wish we could erase from our collective memory (think grabbing your fake Coach bag for a night out at Applebees with the girlies and going into Abercrombie and Fitch and asking for…an empty bag). 
    She makes a case for Uggs, and tells a truly hilarious story about working at a tanning salon in 2011.
    If you aren’t following Kate…uh…Y…2K?

Came for the Products, Stayed for the Chats!

I love this podcast, it’s like the low-key hangout with a friend where you call them and they just come over. I have decided it’s my goal in life to keep my treasured items of clothing and have found MANY of my 20+ year old favorites (looking at you green real leather jacket from Target and band collar denim jacket from the Gap) on Poshmark AND in the size I now am!!! Seriously, hunt down your favs!!!

Disappointed

I was bummed to hear Caroline’s commentary on JK Rowling. She clearly hasn’t familiarized herself with WHY Rowling has been deemed “transphobic”, because if she had, she wouldn’t be using her platform to spread such a ridiculous, non fact based opinion. At this point, she is just repeating talking points and cutting down other women who have done nothing wrong. This is not activism, this is virtue signaling and is an example of Caroline’s prioritization of having a hot take over relaying actual facts.

I always feel icky after listening to this podcast and I’m not quite sure why I have continued for so long. Caroline is constantly interrupting her guests. She comes across as one of those people who just waits for another person to stop so she can insert her opinion instead of actually listening to what they’re saying. The overall energy of the show has just become kind of a downer.

Weird Editing, Real Housewives Talk

Update, May 2022: Yup, I'm still here, Caroline! I have to say, I'm really surprised how my previous review seems to have really stuck with you; I think you've brought it up at least three times now on various episodes. For what it's worth, I am really not trying to troll you. I listen to a LOT of podcasts in general, and for better or worse I can't help but compare them with one another. I'm a late-30s communications professional with an MBA working for a Fortune 500 company, and I can be overly critical when it comes to communication matters like podcasts. Plus, you never think hosts will actually read the reviews! Anyway, I want to counter the "it's free" argument to say that's not a great excuse for going off topic so often. Don't you want to cater to the audience based on the podcast's stated purpose? Seems like a strawman, and an easy fix to some honest, constructive criticism. I'll end by saying, I leave reviews because I care, and I think you can do better. I really think this pod was best during its first year, and I'm glad to hear you say recently that you're going to try to go back to that format. (For what it's worth, per the Jessica Goodman ep, I have friends who know Andy Cohen, I have heard of Roberta's in Brooklyn -- where Jess got married -- I even have the Great Jones blue sheet pan you talked about, probably because of this show. I have a handful of products I learned about through this show, and that is why I continue to listen to your pod).

Original Review Below —
I have been listening from the beginning and am generally a fan, but I have a few complaints. The editing and audio are really random which makes the pod feel amateur. Ads will randomly cut in mid-sentence with no warning, or one ad will be really quiet only to be interrupted by blasting theme music. These seem like simple fixes. In terms of content, please spend less time discussing The Real Housewives. It is really boring for those of us who don't watch the show. And I know Caroline has heard this feedback and does not care. As for the real purpose of this pod, which is the product recs, I have noticed that Caroline often seems too agreeable. Even if she is not immediately excited about a guest rec, by the end of the interview she has already it added to cart and that just seems really inauthentic - even though I don't think it is meant to be. Also it turns me off when Caroline is negative about physical fitness. I realize she is not into it but I bet I am not the only listener who likes to work out regularly. Finally, for what it's worth, I think Geezers should with a soft “g” not a hard “g.”
