Is the realization you are officially “middle aged” totally screwing with your head? Does the fact that all the favorite bands of your youth are now doing “reunion tours” give you a paradoxical feeling of joyful melancholy? Does realizing you can’t lecture your kid about their tattoos and/or piercings without them bringing up yours give you a headache? Wondering how in the hell you are still out marching about the same b******t you were back in your Riot Grrrl days? Well you are not alone!

Life is hard, yo! Just when you think you have it figured out fate throws a handful of nails under your worn tires and there you are, spinning out of control and desperately trying to gain traction. Big or small, it is easy to feel alone in your struggles and it doesn’t have to be that way. If you are anything like the rest of us tired assholes trying to accept that “middle age” is something actually happening to us, you thought you would have this s**t figured out by now too. It is time to tighten up the laces on those old Docs and touch up our goddamned roots; because we are going to get through this crazy s**t together.

    Episode 20: Talking GenX Mental Health with Shanna Branham

    Episode 20: Talking GenX Mental Health with Shanna Branham

    In this, our last episode of 2020, Katie and Loni talk GenX and holiday specific mental health issues and triggers with Portland Licensed Clinical Social Worker Shanna Branham. She is witty, insightful, and incredibly kind (and also looks kinda like the human embodiment of Jessica Rabbit)… we found her insights into our generation to be stunningly validating.

    Although this was intended to go up before Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza, the holiday advice still holds true for all holiday traditions and events. And we hope it starts your 2020 off right.

    Katie and Loni are back to talk about anxiety and how it changes as we age. Do you experience anxiety differently now that you did when you were in your 20s? We sure as hell do… maybe it’s better, maybe it is just bad in a different way. Whatever… we’ll figure it out eventually.

    Episode 18: Crying Over Stars

    Episode 18: Crying Over Stars

    Holy s**t balls… it has been a while! Here’s the thing, Loni and Katie have been pretty preoccupied by Midlife Crisis s**t lately. We know you are feeling their feels. Anyway, there is a weird click in this episode. Katie tried to edit it out. It is still there. Sorry. You are going to want to listen to this one despite the audio anomaly because it is all about the heartbreak of losing our GenX Stars. Ric Ocasek’s recent death kindof triggered a weird flashback to all the big deaths of 2016/17 and we want you all to know it is okay to feel upset about losing these people. You are not crazy. You are not alone. You are not overreacting. They mean a lot to us and it hurts.

    Episode 15: Grown Ass Lady Friends

    Join Katie and Loni in a conversation about grown-ass lady friendships.
    From how puberty suddenly made female friendships more complicated; the devastating friendship hierarchy of high school, cycling through your party friends and losing most of them because you made a baby, the weird mom friend limbo of our 30s… they cover it all to finally land on how f*****g amazing our female friendships become once we reach middle age and run out of f***s to give.
