Amanda, a graphic designer from OH, invited Melissa, a NY stay-at-home mom on her podcast. Melissa, who has been hunkered down for decades after a cool but soul-crushing brush with fame on MTV’s Real World New Orleans, didn’t really do this sort of thing but Amanda seemed nice. They recorded twice due to technical difficulties, but ended up chatting for hours. Who the f**k talks on the actual phone? They do! Two strangers getting to know each other the old-fashioned way. Get to know Melissa all over again as she gets to know Amanda for the first time. Bonus! One’s white and one ain’t.

    Buffalo Stance

    Melissa's back and she's full of affirmations and a positive-ish outlook on life. "She's looking good today. She's looking good in every way..." Buffalo Stance. Amanda, delighted by Melissa's new perspective, shares an interesting factoid about buffalo and storms. Did you know, unlike humans who run from or wait out storms, buffalo wait for the storm to cross right over the crest of the peak of the mountaintop and as the storm rolls over the ridge, the buffalo turn and charge directly into the storm? They man up and weather that shit which is the theme of this episode. On the holiday front, Melissa buys an Oculus for her kids so they can virtually go outside and Amanda buys a trampoline for hers because they have to actually go outside. Hi.

My whole life

That’s how long I’ve waited for this on podcast it seems. So relatable. So profane. So informational. And SO DARN FUNNY! Bravo ladies, bravo! I look forward to this podcast every Friday to start my day off right!

Must listen the day it comes out!

Melissa has been my friend in my head for like 10 years so of course I came to see what she was up to. Amanda is kind and nonjudgmental and it’s fun to hear this friendship grow. Live love laugh- you’ll do it all. But don’t put up a sign!

Best podcast ever.

And I’m not just saying this because I’m Mr. Arthur.
