    Writing Cult Classics with Kiwi Smith, Accepting Anxiety, and Celebrity Deaths

    Transcription: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1d4bgG0TOOIYK4EZD7sCxBP8TI5VMvvC2sNjxnB7cTU8/edit?usp=sharing

    Gaby starts off by sharing some hot tips from their couples therapist. The duo then tackle a listener's question on how to accept that their anxiety will be a constant in their life. Screenwriter Kiwi Smith then joins in to talk about her work on early 00s female-led rom coms including 10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde, and She's The Man. What is it like to have written such culturally iconic films? What's the secret sauce? Why the heck don't we have movies like this today!? And finally, celebrity deaths and the idea of public mourning. Good? Bad? Helpful?

    Romance Novels with Jackie Kashian, Dating Again After A HORRIBLE Breakup, and Family Loyalty

    Transcription: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16bQpQ4VDE3uvNeFGDon4qfcJfMolLdtX6dO1s2WDFF8/edit?usp=sharing

    First, Gaby calls a motel and finds that the front desk people are not very good liars. Then, the duo respond to a listener who is trying to date again after being left in a horrible manner by her ex-fiance--something Allison has a lot of experience and advice about. Next, they talk to comedian and romance novel aficionado Jackie Kashian all about romance novels as a genre, how women fans are devalued, and the ways women are portrayed in media written by women compared to media written by men. And finally, family loyalty. Would you put yourself at risk for a sibling who broke the law? Looking at you Chris Cuomo!

Allison is smart and Gaby is hot

you guys should have Devon Price on the pod! They have a book called Laziness Does Not Exist which talks about anti-productivity mindset and the harm that the notion of laziness does to society, specifically disabled people. Would love to hear them on the pod and y’alls responses!

THE BEST!

This show is the perfect mix of humor, insight, and entertaining hypotheticals. I listen to JBU so regularly that when I recently mentioned something from the show to my partner he said, “oh yeah, your friends Gaby & Alison.” I recommend this podcast to everyone I talk to – friends, family, even my coworkers via our mental-health channel on Slack. I’ve been a fan since the YouTube days and I’m so grateful for everything these two do. Thank you!
