    Johnny Depp, Jessica Chastain, Steve Pieters, Robert Morse

    E130 - We talk about the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, Julianne's memories on set with Johnny Depp on "Mortdecai" with Gwyneth Paltrow, her thoughts on the Alec Baldwin shooting, Rob Huebel's and Paul Scheer's thoughts on the trial, and the wacky psychology involved. What is your own psych diagnosis? Take the test, linked below! Weens updates us on her grad school career updates in social work, specifically in the death and dying and hospice fields, while Jo ranks California colleges as of 20 years ago. Then we discuss an Oscar date with Jessica Chastain as we play part of our documentary interview with Steve Pieters, an AIDS activist, friend, and pastor, who tells us the inside scoop on what "The Eyes of Tammy Faye" Best Actress Academy Award winner is really like. We learn which star helped Steve get ready, who were the stars right next to him at the event, and lessons he learned. Also we remember Robert Morse, Tony and Emmy winner who you might know from "Mad Men" and "How to Succeed In Business Without Trying." Read a wonderful article about this friend and actor that sums up his prolific career, link below, as we reflect on the good, bad, and crazy of Hollywood!

    E129 - Errands are not the most fun part of adulting. But, rather than rushing through them, why not try to make it a special part of your day...or someone else’s! We share some awkward and silly examples of how getting groceries, running to the Post Office, or filling up at the gas station can bring a little joy to those often-dreaded errands. In this episode, we chat about some simple ways to liven up your to-do list while connecting with people along the way. Laughing is good for you! The researchers at Mayo Clinic say so.

    Tahiti, Moorea, Prune Tips, Departure Songs

    Tahiti, Moorea, Prune Tips, Departure Songs

    E127 - Recapping our recent amazing Tahiti and Moorea trip with mom, we talk tsunami from Tonga, the food forest pool boy, crazy drives in our mango jellybean car, a backwoods pig, chumming, and our favorite memories of the beautiful islands in French Polynesia. LISTEN TO THE END for the sweetest song we recorded at the airport going home. We were crying into our masks! But first we get up close and personal about travel bowels, otherwise known as vacation constipation, and wonder if anyone else out there suffers from this too. What can you do to prevent it? Is it diet or stress? How can you fix it? And how do you deal with toilet issues with your travel partners? We also delve into how things are going living together, what is vabbing, some tongue twisters, as well as embarrass ourselves with a fun new talent. Yes, we realize we're educated middle-aged women that still get a huge kick out of 13-year-old boy humor. Don't know what to say besides... this is us!



    Thank you to our amazing patrons - our family!!! - and to our new patron Sara! Hope you like the song, discussion, and welcome pack!

Cole Ashmore ,

Great podcast!

Mouse and Ween is a really interesting podcast that covers so many topics from a female perspective, very refreshing and unique. Thanks guys!

KatFulton ,

I love these girls!!!

They are hilarious and goofy and silly and fun and I love them so much!!! 🤗

jlittlefleck ,

Need a Pick-me-up? Look no further!

Just when I thought the world has lost its sense of humor…I found Joelle and Julianne! I love tuning in to Mouse and Weens when I just want to listen to normal people talk about stuff that is just funny in general. They do a great job of keeping politics to a minimum, focusing on the lighter side of things that everyone can relate to. And OH—the stories! The stories about random celebrity encounters in LA are just the best. Overall - you get to relive the single scene, and share mom hacks at the same time :)
