Sisters Farley and Katherine enjoy their long-distance weekly calls so much that they thought you'd appreciate listening in. Topics range from family, work, snacks, childhood, art, and the complex world we live in. They are often joined by one or two of their friends, amazing women (and approved men) doing amazing things. From the ridiculous to the sublime, F & K try to keep it real but not too serious.

And The Dinky:
A Sense of Purpose
What can we do to find meaning in our own suffering and the suffering of the world? K & F ask Dr. Rogério Pinto this low-key question during a morning call in quarantine. In his delightful Brazilian/Queens accent, Rogério shares a tribute to New York and describes his process of “psychological excavation” through which he has found peace and meaning from a childhood trauma through art. He provides encouragement that everyone has the ability for this kind of healing work.
Rogério's play, Marília, is available online through the University of Michigan: https://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/handle/2027.42/153525

I'm Working Really Hard on My Puzzle
Farley and Kurt are now self-isolating in Virginia, away from New York City, planning to celebrate Katherine’s birthday and their anniversary via video conference. Katherine recounts her first Quarantine Accident. (We hoped it would be her only accident, but since recording, we now know it was not. She’s fine.) The sisters find inspiration in tough times.

It’s Our Time to Shine
The sisters call Cydne Nash, a wise co-social worker, to see how she and her family are doing in quarantine. The conversation exemplifies the richness of Kat and Cynde’s regular office chats and their friendship across their very different life experiences. The conversation goes deep on race, motherhood, human nature, and creating spaces of kindness.
Cydne references Mocha Moms, the premier voice for mothers of color.
The Garlic Situation
The global pandemic gets local as Kat shares an unfortunate event in laundering. F&K begin Quarantine 2020 with some perspective on WFH fashion, pacing oneself with spring cleaning, and what’s helping us get through it all. Babies and birthdays offer hope.
This Is How I'm Fighting The Patriarchy
A friendship that began with matching purses continues decades later as Kat and Lauren catch up. The social workers riff on the importance of the spectrum of micro-to-macro work for health and justice. Farley addresses corporate greed and finds what it takes to make a Real Man.

Weird is inherited
These women have been weirding it together for a long time. The first episode is just the first appetizer, like peanuts, or chips and salsa, to keep you from starving. The baked Brie with chutney and Southern pimento cheese with cayenne will be offered soon. Keep an ice cold beer handy.
Re: Episode 5 with Jim and Chelsea. A very fun and thought filled discussion. Jim’s finding extra time in his life by going vegetarian poses room for thought for all. This episode shows growth in the podcast that was bound to come with experience. The discussion and analysis, desires and perspectives of these four young people gives hope for the world. My conclusion: this episode is the Baked Brie with chutney served on a homemade gluten free dairy free baguette with a good cup of coffee . Five stars!
Worth a listen!
These two are heartfelt, insightful, charming, and really funny. It makes you feel right at home.
