    Take the Money, Feel Your Balls, & Naked Run

    Take the Money, Feel Your Balls, & Naked Run

    Today we realize we used to fat-shame ourselves in our early episodes, and we're relieved we have evolved a bit since then. Sarah describes a roller coaster in Japan that is leaving people w/ spinal fractures, and she reveals why she is surprisingly afraid of coasters. We discuss some of the more humiliating challenges we've participated in, and the phrase, "see-saw my hoo-haw," is uttered. We also speculate about the way men might experience roller coasters in a very...different way than women. We also discuss a theory about tastebuds on your b-hole and how Sarah believes she solved the mystery. We hear about a man who is creating a family with a bird.

I feel like I know you both but I don’t….

After binging the Challenge during lockdown, I followed Susie and Sarah on social and found the podcast. I started at episode 1 this summer and am listening on 2x speed to catch up! I love hearing the growth of these women, and learning so much from them both. I’m just listened to episode 177 so I have a long ways to go. Keep it coming!

Episode 555

For me personally the VR headset makes me dizzy and gives me headaches, so I’m not a fan. I know Susie wanted to know about the effects so there’s my answer. Love you hookers ❤️

Absolute shouldn’t miss

I highly recommend this podcast. I feel involved with a smart and funny conversation with smart and funny friends. Just very authentic, intelligent and interesting banter. While I have watched and admired both over the years l, but you don’t need to have been a follower of Real World/Road Rules/The Challenge to enjoy this podcast!!!
