Two LA-raised spiritualists candidly observing passing phenomena. Hosted by Gabi Abrão (@sighswoon) and James Francis (@jamesfrancish)
Is Nicholas in the Room with Us Right Now?
James and Gabi talk about an ex bf interaction and getting bit by a chicken. We then get into the Gabbie Hanna situation and what it symbolizes about the internet, boundaries, performance, and illusions. We get into Nicholas - the online viewer turned IRL spawn, who broke the third wall by arriving to Gabbie's house and "trying to help her" whilst tiktokking his mission. We also talk about internet mistakes, the very real reality that we are all creating and learning from the internet in real time.

James and Gabi reflect on Gabi’s first book signing for Notes on Shapeshifting, as well as the fist fight they witnessed right after that James broke up herself. We talk about Nathan Fielder’s “The Rehearsal” and discuss the concept of manipulation. In a way, all communication is manipulation. We bitch about bitching, as usual. We daydream about living in a perfect bubble.

No Topic Head Empty
James and Gabi embark on an episode with zero topics in mind just to see where it goes. Thoughts emerge on James’ stay in a dome in Topanga, wide brimmed hats, having skinny boyfriends, going to a Fourth of July party just to eat new food, board short styles, the “girl war” which may just be a war on joy and the felt presence of God, living simply. After 45 mins we really peak into some life-loving gratitude hype I gotta say. Also, new sign-off announced.

This pod is a lazy, fun time for anyone who likes to be lazy and have fun with some deeper moments sprinkled in. I really enjoy it and don’t know any other podcasts like it!
Like hanging w your bffs
I love listening to this pod when I’m walking my dog. I left free spirited, LA for the boring East coast during the pandemic. Listening to this podcast transports me back to fun, deep talks and smoke sessions on the beach with my girls.
