    NASH-P Updates, Turd Burgling, and Middle Aged Injuries

    NASH-P Updates, Turd Burgling, and Middle Aged Injuries

    Amy and Andrea are back with a mixed bag, bonus episode! And well, the future of NASH-P is looking pretty damn grim. They start off the show by sharing what did and did not happen when they pitched a podcast media company. They then move on to discuss their various interactions with human poop. You’ll hear all about young Amy’s turd burgling experience. They then take a trip down memory lane and offer updates on topics NASH-P listeners know and love, like, an update from Andrea about the worst diarrhea drink ever and how Amy finally received the face diaper to fix her resting frown face. Middle aged injuries also make a comeback. Finally, they offer some thoughtful advice about getting consent before flashing your butt, your boobs, or your pom-pom pubes. And with that, they sign off from the pod for an unknown amount of time. So for now, yes, this is the end. No seriously. This is the end. Bye, bye.

    016: Awkward Sex Mishaps, Mooning, and Feeling Stuck

    Amy starts off this episode getting right into the fun and sass, by prompting Andrea to, “Tell me your awkward sex stories.” Talk of a bean bag chair sex mishap, an herbal ecstasy fail, and a pyrotechnic pillow ensues. Andrea then shares about the time she decided to moon the Vegas strip, at 10am in the morning, in broad daylight in protest of a wicked hangover. 
    Eventually, they get around to answering a question about feeling stuck from avid listener Jane Donut. Jane writes, “Now I feel desperately stuck. I'm so very, very clear that I need to get out, but I have no idea how, or what that looks like. Please help!”

    Pom-Pom Pubes, Resting Frown Face, and Imposter Syndrome

    Pom-Pom Pubes, Resting Frown Face, and Imposter Syndrome

    This week, Amy and Andrea ponder the question, “What’s your quarantine shaving routine like?” Amy shares that she has been keeping up with maintenance somewhat, including shaving her delicates and leaving a landing strip for good measure, just like any self-respecting Gen-Xer would do. Andrea, on the other hand, is angry that pom-pom pubes (you know, the tufts of hair that hang out of your bathing suit) are not socially acceptable. Before they dive into a self-help question, Amy provides an update on her issue with her resting frown face. Don’t worry; she is trouble-shooting the issue. Her two-step plan to overcome frown face includes face diapers. She has everything under control. They finally answer a self-help question from one-named wonder, Vart. Vart wants to know what she can do to overcome imposter syndrome. They gotchu, Vart, they really do.

Welllll, one of these two ladies has, listen to find out which one. Andrea also shares about the time she threw out her back while picking up a gallon of milk. 🤦‍♀️  Amy has some middle-aged news of her own, as she finds herself doing whatever she can to avoid wearing compression socks. 🧦 
    They finish out the episode by sharing their Top 10 List of To-Do’s (not to be confused with their Top Ten List of To-Don’ts); to help you maneuver your way through these shit times.

    Varts, Tampons, and Constant Comparison

    Varts, Tampons, and Constant Comparison

    This week, Amy and Andrea begin by confessing their adoration for NASH-P listeners who have shared their period poop stories with them. Awww…..they love you and your stories! Then, a conversation about vaginal flatulence, aka varting, is revisited, which leads to a more in-depth discussion about tampons. That’s when Andrea realizes, with the help of Amy and a WikiHow article, that she has been inserting tampons all wrong for 30-years. 🤦‍♀️ 
    Amy talks about that one time when she had to wear compression garments and how it led to the creation of obstacle-free pooping. And yes, of course, they eventually do answer a personal development question - about constant comparison.
