    You're doing great, sweetie - Trauma Bonding Pt. II

    You're doing great, sweetie - Trauma Bonding Pt. II

    On last weeks episode we went through the 7 stages of trauma bonding and start this week off explaining how intermittent reinforcement links to love bombing and continues toxic cycles within relationships. Sounds super jargon-y, we know but we break it down using mice and pellets life real scientists. We also cover the 5 stages of accepting that you are in a trauma bond and some encouragement for escaping it. As always, please skip this week if you aren't in a good place mentally to handle this topic. We cherish you and your minds!

    We were secretly engaged! ME TOO! - Trauma Bonding

    We were secretly engaged! ME TOO! - Trauma Bonding

    CW - toxic relationships, emotional & physical
    This is a tough one. In today's episode we discuss something that has been one of our most highly requested topics, trauma bonding. We know the world is heavy right now, but something we've realized is that in order to feel lighter ourselves, we must first identify the weight we're carrying around. Through this discussion, which SURPRISE went way longer than anticipated, we felt validated and freed from fears, resentment and guilt that we didn't realize still lived within us even years after leaving. We hope to give you the space to heal as well. This is a 2 part episode- part 1 today, 2 next week. I told you it went long! In part 1, we discuss the 7 stages of trauma bonding and what it can look like inside an unhealthy, toxic relationship. Please skip this episode if you are not in a place to process or bring up or hear some really tough memories. You matter more than a listen. We love you!

    The Amazon Prime Minister - Imaginary Friends

    The Amazon Prime Minister - Imaginary Friends

    On our constant quest to understand why tf our minds do what they do, we took a pit stop in Imagination Land- specifically Imaginary Friend...Town? You get it. This isn't an actual quest and we aren't actually stopping. I've over thought this entirely too much already. ANYWAY - please enjoy one theory of where they come from, their assumed purpose and several terrifying and curious examples of imaginary friends. We tried finding funny ones but apparently parents are more freaked out than amused by them.

    Tangents & True Crime - Canadian Residential Schools

    Tangents & True Crime - Canadian Residential Schools

    This weeks Tangents & True Crime is about an ongoing injustice that has caused years of generational trauma on Indigenous families in North America. We want to take this opportunity to amplify this tragedy in hopes to bring awareness. If the subjects of this story are triggering to you, please prioritize yourself and skip this episode. Your mental health is always what matters most. We hope that the conversation does not stop here and that justice can be served to the people most affected by the unspeakable harm caused by these schools.

    Here for a good time, not a real time - 911 Calls

    Here for a good time, not a real time - 911 Calls

    It was after an hour in a hyper fixation on funny 911 calls that I realized that some of them (most of them) weren't even real. Too much time had already been spent to abandon the notation so this is essentially us reading a script from a Netflix show. Please enjoy as we attempt to re-enact funny 911 calls- with a sprinkle of a history of the how the number came about. You're probably more interested in that now, huh. Great. Sorry.

    Every Tuesday, just me flicking my unicorn - 100th EPISODE

    Every Tuesday, just me flicking my unicorn - 100th EPISODE

    100 EPISODES!! If we’re honest- we never ever thought we’d get here and we certainly did think we’d have so many of you hanging out with us. We are more grateful to you than we can even begin to say and hope you enjoy this virtual sleepover where we continuously squeal, sniff, cry and laugh while sharing your messages. We did our best to integrate the audio but some sections may still be a little hard to hear in the car or in a house of screaming children….heads up from a friend. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all of the love & support. CHEERS TO ENDLESS MORE!

ShaynaR20 ,

Love them!

I found them on TikTok and honestly they really got me into podcasts. I appreciate how they tackle big topics in a tactful and tasteful way. They throw humor in there to break up the hard stuff and that makes it easier to process. My favorite podcast hands down!

NikkiB717 ,

So much serotonin!!!

I love listening to you girls tangent! Your laughter is so contagious and makes me laugh! Both are so great at telling stories and you’ve taught me so much! A lot of your topics you discuss I had no idea about!

Aarge ,

So good!

It’s seriously just like sitting down and talking with two of your closest friends. They’re hilarious but they also tackle difficult topics tactfully. I found them on Tik Tok like most of us did and was extra super excited to find out they’re in Ohio - as a native Ohioan living out of state it helps with my homesickness.
