Welcome to conversations over coffee with two hard-working women who are lifelong friends. Even though we've walked different paths, we share a quirky sense of humor and infuse our stories with some pretty salty language. We share our messes and adventures and most of the time our stories aren’t graceful, or wrapped up with a bow on top – most of the time, they're just the mugly truth.
unChristmas Christmas Movies
Today we talk about movies that are part of the great "Is it a Christmas movie or not?" debate, the likes of which include Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Gremlins, Better Off Dead, Meet Me in St. Louis, The Ref and so many more. If you're not ready for Elf, A Christmas Story or Miracle on 34th Street, you can get primed for the holidays in a less traditional way with these classic unChristmas movies. And, yeah, we talk about our must-watch full-blown Christmas movies too.
The Anti-Thanksgiving Episode
We don't even know what happened with the topic for this episode because when we sat down to record, an organic conversation of our feelings about Disney's current shenanigans, gas prices, the state of healthcare and then more about Disney sort of spewed out. If you're looking for warm fuzzy fun, check out our previous episodes. If you want to commiserate about the state of this planet grab a stiff drink, pull up a chair and let's gripe! This is the most ungrateful November episode we've ever done.
Homes That Make You Go HMMM
Viewing real estate websites is the stuff of daydreams: sneaky peeks of spacious open floorplans with a killer view, whether you're just wishing, or actually looking to buy. And anyone who's been on a site like Zillow or Redfin, has likely seen at least one house that truly made them go "hmmmmm". So today we're talking about some of those weird properties and really, we just have one request: clean your damned house before taking pictures. It's not that hard, really. Cmon.
Salem Witch Trials
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! We're dropping early to discuss the Salem Witch Trials with a twist: one of us has a great, great, great, great, etc., somebody or other in her family tree who was a major player in the trials. You have a 50% chance to guess the right host...if you win treat yourself to a caffeinated libation! Listen, then go check out our blog with links to all the things at themuglytruth.com!

Who Spooks You?
Everyone knows the big names of cinematic villain history, there's a whole universe of them out there that rock our spooky world. Rather than talk a little about a bunch, we decided to delve deep into the creepy closet to dig up the skeletons of two of our favorites: The Invisible Man and Oogie Boogie. Turn off the lights, don't be afraid...someone is watching you...
Hey there! Knock knock. Pssst. It's OCTOBER! The time of our people has arrived. Hallowthanksmas has begun! In this episode there are lots of ideas for killer costumes, spooky decorations and some seriously creepy destinations to satisfy your ghost hunter ambitions. Come, fellow Fall fiends...join us on the dark-ish side. (((We have pumpkins.)))
They won’t disappoint!
These gals are great and they always brighten my day. I find myself being able to completely relate to something in every episode! Thank you, Kym and Kris!
Love these ladies
I love these ladies! They talk about all types of things, and they are fun to listen to. I always look forward to their episodes :)
