Olivia Gatwood and Melissa Lozada-Oliva are two internationally-renowned writers and performers who have a lot of questions about things that don't matter. But mostly, they are just two girls who are unfortunately not talking less.
OUR LIVES, MINED
O & M talk about the possibility that their lives have been used as fodder for a bestselling novel. Are they self-involved? Or are they right?
RETROACTIVE JEALOUSY & OTHER TERRIBLE FEELINGS
M&O talk about how trauma can make relationships a nightmare but also how you can get better.
ARE WE SMART?
Melissa & Olivia question whether or not they are smart. Which maybe means they aren't?
Ep. 62: The Oversharing Industrial Complex
Melissa and Olivia talk about what it means when celebrities make money off their wounds and the intentions behind oversharing on the internet. They also go into the nuances of being an abolitionist and what it means to publish former abusers.
BAD TV & TOUGH LOVE "PARENTING"
Melissa & Olivia try to justify their love of melodramatic television & also are in complete denial about their traumatic childhoods.
EP. 60 - ALTERNATE UNIVERSES
Melissa & Olivia talk about what could have been.
Can’t really relate, but I bet many people would dig it 👍🏽.
Keep saying more!!
I’ve been a fan of Melissa and Olivia since before they started the podcast, the show is thoughtful and a lot of their advice has done me good. I love both of their work but I do wish the podcast came out more consistently!
That being said buy their books :)
A real time stream of my inner consciousness
I have spent many a pandemic hour listening to Say More and not just once or twice but on many occasions I’ve found myself nodding vigorously, ugly cackling and/or yelling “RIGHT???” to my pile of half folded clothes as Olivia and Melissa discuss their lives, and ideas and concepts in a way that often scratch an itch that I’ve had in the back of my mind. Whether it’s about how literally everything is a pyramid scheme, or about grieving the fading of friendships, to wanting to wear a dress and work in a junkyard, these women feel like the older sisters I’ve always needed in my life and I can’t thank them enough for the sounds they’ve put in my ear holes in these trying times. If your a 23 year old feeling like the world is ending, Melissa & Olivia are here to tell you it’s only kind of ending, but like let’s laugh about it in the meantime.
