A podcast about being the kind of grown-ups we want to be. The answers are better than the questions.
These Are My Heist Friends
Brook and Kari talk about adult female friendships, meeting Internet friends, friends when you’re married, the work of being a friend, the friends at work, lessons from Oceans 8, how friendships awkwardly dissipate.
Enunciate the syllables
Brook and Kari talk about conferences: going to them, enjoying yourself, getting your money’s worth, doing a talk, understanding the code of conduct.
Brook and Kari chat about recent movies we’ve seen, books read, and podcasts listened to. 50 Shades spoilers. Tolkien white guys. Superhero movies. Writers writing about experiences they don’t have.
What We Did On Our Vacation
Brook and Kari talk about what we’ve been up to, since we haven’t been podcasting a whole lot. Some really good book, movie, TV, and podcast recommendations here. I (Kari) can’t believe I didn’t mention I listened to S-Town. Plus, we talk about gender confirmation surgery.
United By Queerness
Brook and Kari talk about Pride month, celebrations, marches, mainstreaming, commodification, rainbow-washing, chanting, mourning, abstaining, and showing up for the actual work the rest of the year. Should you go? Yes.
Don't Ghost Your Parents
Brook and Kari discuss chosen families, constructing family units, friends that stick, healthy boundaries for adults, rules for showing up for your friends.
Recorded on iPhone?
Great topics but the audio quality is too low to handle.
Knitter, bassist, ENFP.
Frank, funny, and real. Kari’s delivery is pitch-perfect. A poignant podcast for anyone struggling with what it means to be a “grown-up,” whether we want to or not.
