    Nutty Buddy Wishes and Velveeta Dreams

    This week (day? month? fortnight? who knows!) times are terrifying so Meg and Julian are back on the gramma couch to talk about childhood comfort foods and movies. Ah childhood, that magical time before you knew that housing a whole box of Fruity Pebbles at once was "stress eating." Before you knew that the freckled kid from the Sandlot would become an Urban Outfitters t-shirt, and before you knew that Nutri-grain bars for breakfast were child abuse. Listen up and pretend reality isn't happening!

    Softest greetings from our quarantine headquarters (our couch)! We are back and we missed the hell out of you, dear softies. Today we are taking it back to y2k- a simpler time when frosted eyeshadow and end of the world hysteria via robot takeover reigned supreme!

    Hurry up, it’s the bell!

    There will only be fun! (with Ross Marquand)

    There will only be fun! (with Ross Marquand)

    Meg and Julian are back for another stop on their farewell tour. First, they share stories about jobs they were fired from. Then they revisit a chat with one of their favorite guests actor, master impressionist, and zombie killer Ross Marquand! While you may know him as Aaron from The Walking Dead, we now know him as the best (and only?) John C. Reilly impersonator. He also blessed us with (Soft) Spot-on impressions of your fav Sorprano, your favorite philosophical Texan actor, and a certain legendary Scottish silver fox. If you don’t know who We are talking about, I guess it’s about time you tune in and figure it out! And if that’s not enough reason to listen, Ross’s Soft Spot is a twofer: both the theme song of and the television show, Highlander! In fact, his enthusiasm for the show is so contagious you will feel like you’ve been bitten by a Highlander zombie, doomed to wander the earth in search of old episodes. Enjoy!

    Won't you be my neighbor, again? (with John Mulaney)

    Won't you be my neighbor, again? (with John Mulaney)

    Julian and Meg start on their farewell tour and reveal their Soft Spots gone sour, former Soft Spots that just don’t hold up when revisited. Then they remember their visit with gorgeous kid John Mulaney! His love for Mr. Rogers reminds us that what is essential is not visible, that speaking softly can have a loud effect, and that not everybody has heard the Backstreet Boys..

    Song of the Summer

    Song of the Summer

    This week Meg and Julian go sans guest for a deeper dive into the magic of Summer! The smells, the food, the new boobs and the old hits, Summer is boss when it comes to the good old days. Meg also recounts the horror of her recent bout with BPPV (vertigo), a harrowing and cautionary tale that will leave you spinning (but hopefully not her).
