    #104 GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY

    Mike Carano (Corona) is back! And, he's here to talk about progress, set-backs, and actually doing the things you KNOW will help you (and Kristen couldn't relate more). They also talk about getting outside, being isolated, going off medication, validation, smelly microphones and so many more things that the neurotic person can relate to. Follow Mike on Instagram @MikeCarano and Kristen @Kriscarn. Thank you for listening and sharing the show with a friend.

    #103 Big Surprise, an Ep about COVID-19!

    #103 Big Surprise, an Ep about COVID-19!

    Welcome to the show now known as 'Kristen, chill.' Hopefully this is the last name change and the first of many episodes under the somewhat-ish new moniker. Kristen is joined by Resident Consultant Jen and "Ky the Movie Guy" to talk about the Coronavirus and our "new normal" (that's for you, Jen). They talk about what they've been doing to get through these strange times, how Jen coped with a mandatory 14 day quarantine after coming in contact with not 1 but 2, count 'em 2 confirmed Coronavirus patients. They also talk about Kyle, as a grocery store manager, being on the front lines. Kristen also tells us about going off of antidepressants, her dog passing, why she isn't watching TV and how disappointed she is Kyle. For extra show content, go to Patreon.com/KristenandChill (the web address hasn't changed along with the new name quite yet). Also, follow Kristen on Instagram @kriscarn and Twitter @KristenCarney and Jen and Kyle on Twitter @ifner24 and @filthykyle. Stay safe out there!

    #102 Getting out of Your Comfort Zone

    Kristen is pushed out of her comfort zone this month and talks all about it and why it'll be good for her. Her and Resident Consultant Jen also talk about awkward silences, ski etiquette and the speculation around Kristen's Great Great Grandfather's death/suicide. They also talk about why Jen has a hard time doing nothing, even on a vacation, Kristen's simple family and they do a little "Would You Rather" for old time's sake. Follow Kristen on Instagram @KrisCarn and on Twitter @KristenCarney. Jen barely tweets but follow her anyway on Twitter @ifner24.

    #100 Neuroses and Bodily Functions

    In this momentous 100th episode (which should make this day the newest national holiday), Kyle and Kristen talk in-depth about bathroom habits because they’re mature. They also talk in-depth about neuroses and whether or not neuroses make people funny. Kristen also tells two stories about being a bad driver (but she’s actually a really good driver (Kristen wrote this obviously)). Find her (me) on Instagram @kriscarn and Kyle on twitter @filthykyle.

letsreinventmyself ,

STOP !!!! (unless you’re open minded and silly weird)

Kristen should be in the “SPEW”(er) hall of fame !! Her podcasts are original .... on and off topic .... real life ... wanna be life .... her’s AND yours !! Some great name dropping too !!! Episodes with Jen, the resident consultant are MONEY .... Kristen’s episodes are like Lays .... you can’t eat just one ....

InFazWeTrust23 ,

It’s okay

She can definitely be funny and has okay guests but really bad views about BLM - can’t support someone on the wrong side of history

jjshellofund ,

Love it

Openly talking about mental health is amazing thank you
