    S:01 E: 08 - Float On!

    008 Show Description Float On
    Brace yourselves--it’s time for a fresh and fabulous discussion about the parade float that stole Mary’s soul. Peggy suggests starting a “Go Fund Me” so we actually have lives that don’t involve children’s television. We don’t love planning dinner, we do love potatoes (“all russets, all the time”) and trashy reality t.v., and we can probably live without Pretty Bird.
    Mary talks about lessons learned from her volunteer work on a float for the 2018 Days of ‘47 parade. She learned a lot, but is not anxious to repeat the experience. We are celebrating Peggy’s daughter Lizzy coming home from Girl Scout camp and Ben’s singing a new primary song. Mary also returns the favor to Peggy by giving her a list of her favorite (pre-Delta) Mumford & Sons songs.
    Huge thanks to BenSound and Pleasant Pictures for our background and intro music. And thank you, our lovelies, for listening!

    S:01 E:07 - Imperfection, Dammit

    007 Show Description - Imperfection, Dammit
    Happy birthday, Peggy . . . four months late! This a mostly unedited episode, with lots of lip (and lick!) smacking, recorded at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Since Mary’s husband Allen has come on board as an editor and producer, you’ve been spared the details of one of Mary’s messy running incidents. Find out what almost made Peggy “lose her Jesus” at the Phantom of the Opera, which Netflix show is making up for it, and which coconut lotion is Mary’s favorite. Unfortunately, because of the struggles with how long it has taken to get the podcast episode out, and with the way Bath & Body Works turns over its fragrance line-up like the changing of the wind, it’s already been discontinued. But if you’d like a spreadsheet, let us know.
    Peggy reminds us (with the help of our friend Brené Brown) that we don’t need to be perfect. This podcast is a reminder of how human we are, and we hope you’ll keep listening anyway. Mary’s ninja warrior friend Kolina (check her out on Instagram @nikolina610) is a great example of showing up and making positive changes in your life.
    Peggy also presents an extensive list of her favorite songs, including plenty of Waylon. Freaking. Jennings. Thanks to BenSound and Pleasant Pictures for our music. And thank YOU for listening!

    S:01 E:06 - Sing Your Heart Out

    S:01 E:06 - Sing Your Heart Out

    Season 1, Episode 006: Sing Your Heart Out
    PSA: there is a LOT of singing on this episode. There is a discussion on suicide. And there are also quite a few interruptions from Mary’s son Benji, who really loves crackers. All in all, this is a rather rough episode to listen to. It’s a good discussion, but it’s definitely okay to skip this one.
    We get on our soapbox about Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, 13 Reasons Why, and other aspects about suicide. Peggy is loving a certain Pathway, and Mary is loving certain podcasts (like Sam Jones’ Off-Camera).
    Mary LOVES concerts, and gives a review of some great shows she saw recently. She also gives a diatribe on concert etiquette, which basically boils down to this: don’t be an a-hole.
    The songs we are loving are Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio (and, of course, Amish Paradise by Weird Al), Lights of Home by U2, and Secrets by P!nk.
    Thanks to BenSound and Pleasant Pictures for our music. And thank you for tuning in!

    This is Me
    Oh my gosh! Welcome back to the Love & Light Podcast! Peggy (the gentle threatener) and Mary (the surgical dabbler) are beta-moms who are so excited that you are giving us another listen! We talk about how to work some Gangsta Rap into your church lessons, how to apply sunscreen to toddlers, and about pens with great personalities and special spirits. We also talk about owning who you are as a parent, about authenticity and the image we portray, and we reveal the actual key to parenting (hint: it’s NOT admitting that Caillou is still on Netflix). There may also be a special voice appearance from she-who-must-not-be-named.
    We love these podcasts:
    Baconsale
    Awesome with Alison
    The Tim Ferriss Show
    And the music we talk about in this episode:
    The Greatest Showman soundtrack
    Firework by Katy Perry
    Dynamite by Taio Cruz
    Also, a big thanks to bensound.com and Pleasant Pictures for the background music!

    S:01 E:04 - Do The Hustle!

    Episode 004
    Do the Hustle, or “Reasons Why We’re All Gonna Burn.” Peggy and Mary talk about our favorite R-rated movies, but don’t worry--it’s just a small piece of poo in the cake! How do you feel about karaoke time, or “story time with Peggy?” Mary talks about the joys of the Float Committee, Peggy talks about spending money on adult things, like mattresses. Tune in to find out about the 11th commandment is (it has to do with Bunco), and discover the moral of Peggy’s soapbox.
    We talk about hustling for our worth (PLEASE read “Gifts of Imperfection” by Brené Brown, but don’t worry too much about “You Are A Bada**”), characteristics of middle children, and how difficult it can be to feel loved. It’s okay to be nice to yourself! You are worth investing in (also, please check out the “Awesome with Alison” podcast!). We’re celebrating Mental Health Awareness, and our favorite songs this week are “Barbies” by P!nk, “Take Me Home” by Phil Collins, and Frente’s cover of “Bizarre Love Triangle.” We hope you feel fine and you feel good!
    Also, a big thanks to bensound.com and Pleasant Pictures for the music. Y'all are fantastic!

    S:1 E:3 'Tis a Gift To Be Simple

    003
    ‘Tis a gift to be simple, friends! Thanks for listening to Episode Three of the Love & Light podcast! We hope you enjoy the smell in the “Bitter Barn,” after you visit Fairly Reliable Bob’s in Boise. Don’t let those little honyockers give static to your kids, and remember--Jesus loves a winner! Mary is loving being blonde, Peggy is loving her letter board, and we both love Gretchen Rubin’s “Happier” podcast (try the one-minute rule!). We talk about filling our cups, taking care of the small and simple things, and how to get out of the weeds. We get into some good lesbian music (Tracy Chapman’s “Promise” and Tina Turner’s “The Best”) and celebrate Lizzie’s birthday! Thanks for tuning in!
