If 2020 has shown us anything, its that everything can go from bad to worse and we can wind up spending months in our homes quarantining and flipping from streaming service to streaming service. It was in this quarantining time that I began to toy with the idea of starting a podcast. I knew I wanted it to be a happy little corner on the internet, and next thing I knew, Hey! I like you! was taking shape. I’ll be talking about the things that make me and my friends smile. Whether that’s a spam of Harry Styles content or appreciating a Saturday movie matinee you best believe I’ll talk about it.
We wanted a reality show, but we'll settle for loving ourselves.
Hi guys, today we talk about reasons why, and how we love ourselves. Listen along as we talk about what we love in ourselves, our lives, and how we show love to ourselves. Creating this episode was really helpful for both us, we've been in the covid mind fog, and thinking on these 3 topics allowed us to really focus in on the positives in our lives. Head over to our instagram page (@heyilikeyou_podcast) and tell us what you love about yourself and your life, and how you show yourself love.
Some additional things we're loving this week, reality TV. Always. A few of our favourites are Jersey Shore, Geordie Shore, and Real Housewives of SLC. We're also so happy that Disney+ has expanded, allowing us to finally watch shows like Black-ish and fall in love with Tracee Ellis Ross. Speaking of incredible women to emulate, @aubryeliz is an account Becky has been following for a while, and she thinks you should too. Lastly one of the ways we've both come to show love for our bodies is through movement, and we both love and like @sammhaden check out her saved IGTV's to get a taste for her workouts.
Everyone's two favorite things: Costco and politics...
Are you obsessed with Costco? Apparently we are! Listen in this week to hear us profess our love for bulk queso and discuss our thoughts on politics.
A super helpful tool in framing our discussion for this episode was isidewith.com and we highly recommend going to the site to see which political parties you most align with. Leave a comment on our Instagram account @heyilikeyou_podcast telling us if you were surprised by the results!
And HEY! here are the links to some things we like this week:
P.S. If you know anyone who is looking for a personal assistant who is particularly skilled in phone calls and reciting large drive-thru orders, @becky_smitty would be an outstanding candidate for the position.
Dating philosophy from a couple of babes.
We're covering a lot of ground this week starting on the topic of DATING. We talk romantic relationships, getting to know people during Covid lockdowns, unmet expectations, choosing contentment where you are at, and find our way to accepting the ups and downs of life.
If you're feeling like you want to get a sense of what Becky was talking about when she spoke about Daniel Sloss' stand up routine (*CAUTION ITS GOT LOTS OF PROFANITY AND CRUDE JOKES. i'm not kidding. NOT intended for family listening) she tried to nail down a little window of the show, the 51:38 minute mark to 52:47. Its literally a minute, but its good AND profanity free.
*For a number of potential reasons, there were quite a few issues with the audio of this episode and you may notice some weird overlapping during portions of the conversation. We're so grateful for your patience and we promise it'll only get better from here!*

On this week's episode we skim the surface of a topic deeply woven into society- how people (specifically women) should and shouldn't dress and the implications of those standards. For many, the term 'modesty' has been taught to them in a way that damages their confidence and has made them feel as if women are responsible for the thoughts and actions of men.
Listen along as we discuss some of our experiences, the way we were raised to understand modesty, and how we view it now.

I have a special guest and surprise for our listeners on this episode! Tune in and get to know my familiar friend a little more as we talk about family, our personalities, mental health, and values- as well as the direction of this podcast in the future.
We hope you enjoy our conversation as much as we did and forgive us for getting so caught up that we forgot to mention what ‘we like’ this week. So if you’re needing a little pick me up, watch this video that we reference at the beginning of the episode: https://youtu.be/KNUKou8vnJQ And maybe like me, bask in the glory that is being able to wear sweats all day and skip the bra because I never leave my house #apositive side to covid.
Therapy is something I love, and I’ll shout it from the rooftops, but it wasn’t always that way. Last week while I was trying to fall asleep I couldn’t shake the feeling that I needed to talk about how I’ve used therapy, and come to love it. I’ve worked with 4 different therapists throughout the years, and I break down each one of them. If you’re considering booking a therapy appointment consider this your sign and DO IT.
