    TRUTH OR DRINK @ Creative Block Seattle

    TRUTH OR DRINK @ Creative Block Seattle

    This week features audio from a full video episode that was filmed with MarkyBoy Productions at Creative Block Seattle. To get the full effect of each nasty shot they took, head on over to ladiesinprogresspodcast.com and check it out! 

    Listen (and be sure to watch!) as Leanna, Ana, and Lynn play a game of TRUTH OR DRINK, where the ladies pull a question out of a hat and choose to answer, pass, or roll the dice to let fate decide their drink. With shots poured that include everything from tequila and Fireball to soy sauce and habanero hot sauce, it's hard to tell what's worse - revealing their deepest secrets or taking a swig. 

    What game should we play next time at Creative Block? Follow us on IG and FB @ladiesinprogresspodcast to let us know.

    Home Remedies

    In the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, it's Windex. For Ana's family, it's Vick's VapoRub. 

    No matter your background or culture, everyone has home remedies that were passed down from generations before us that seem to be the cure-all for everything from headaches and hangovers to sore throats and stinky breath.

    Do you know what tying two slices of tomatoes around your face can help soothe? What happens to a bruise when you rub a hardboiled egg on it? Would you dare take a mustard bath if it could ease this particular pain? 

    Listen and learn about home remedies from different cultures and dare to try some of them yourself. Who knows, you may already have the ingredients in your very own kitchen or backyard! 

    What are some special home remedies from your family that you still use today? Let us know in the episode post on IG @ladiesinprogresspodcast.
