Does the phrase "boss babe building her empire" make you want to throw up? Is your preferred state actually vegetative in front of reality tv? Do celebrities mean more to you than your family? If so, you've found your gals. Every Wednesday, join sister duo Lauren and Chanler, as they issue the hottest takes they can give without getting #cancelled...like the oppressive societal expectation that in addition to paying our bills, we also have to have impressive hobbies, or that the fastest way to get to know a man is to look at his IG explore page. Tune in every Wednesday to Pop Apologists, critically acclaimed as "absolutely so embarrassing for our family" by their mom.

    79: How You Get Him Is How You Lose Him

    79: How You Get Him Is How You Lose Him

    This week Chanler and I bemoan our shared agony over starting a retinol regimen, as we are both undergoing the infamous retinol burn. We then dive into the Kravis engagement; that's right, our favorite punk rock couple, Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian, are betrothed! 🌹☠️💎 After celebrating this happy news and dissecting Kourtney's relationship history, we turn to darker subject matter: the breakdown of Lala Kent and Randall Emmett. We walk our listeners through their relationship timeline, revisit the homewrecking behavior that began their relationship, and discuss our thoughts on whether this separation will last. Finally, we get into the recent nuptials of Meghan King Edmonds to Cuffe Owens, nephew to President Biden (who attended the ceremony!) and also dish on the reaction from Meghan's ex husband and possibly the devil incarnate, Jim Edmonds, and his likewise malevolent fiancé, Kortnie O'Connor, as published in the Daily Mail. Buckle tf in, bb's.

    77: Don't Hate Us ft. Jena Kingsley

    We are joined by Jena Kingsley, host of Dear Media's Social Studies podcast, to discuss the things people love but, frankly, we hate. This includes charcuterie boards, people who post on LinkedIn, the demand for tipping everywhere you go, grocery store check out donation requests, the big water bottle trend, and more. Join us for a full hour of toxic negativity and leave refreshed and renewed with the stunning knowledge that you are not the only person annoyed by virtually everything. Buckle in!

    75: Never Trust a Man with a Pinterest

    This week Chan and I get into a little postmortem about last week's controversial episode. We chat poor financial habits and the reasons why we blame our parents for our ineptitudes as grown adults. We get into the Gabby Petito murder and discuss the disturbing timeline of events that led to her remains being found in Yellowstone. Finally, we touch on the new LulaRich doc and discuss whether or not the state should be involved in protecting people from MLM schemes. Buckle in, bb's!

    74: Unpopular Opinions with Ash Johnsdottir

    74: Unpopular Opinions with Ash Johnsdottir

    Chan is out this week so I am joined by the eldest Bledsoe sister, Ash, for a late in the evening chat and catch up. We share our unfiltered thoughts on dieting, growing up Mormon, children smoking cigarettes, and toxic positivity mindsets. I remind Ash of the moment she brought our family eternal shame by doing the unthinkable in a Mormon Sunday church service. Listen in for a conversation where we truly don't hold back. Disclaimer: if any talk of dieting or food restriction is not productive for you mentally, please skip this episode. Love y'all. 3

MY FAVORITE PODCAST

Thank you for adding joy to my life-you both are darling and naughty-a great combo

Like chatting with your witty BFFs

Such a fun listen - Iove the honest opinions in a world that is overly censored as to not offend anyone. They are also very well spoken which is refreshing for a pop culture podcast- I feel like I am getting smarter whilst listening to real housewives recaps. Plus their “unpopular opinions” are on point (looking at you emrata). I actually laugh out loud at this podcast. U guys rock never change

Smart, Funny, and Simply Stunning

I love the way these sisters talk about my favorite shallow topics with a stunning vocabulary and quick wit. I eagerly devour each episode and if Lauren and Chanler received a commission for every show I’ve watched, celebrity I’ve googled or book I’ve read because of this podcast, they would be very rich women. If they started a cult, I would join. 10/10. Would listen again.
