Season 1 Reflections

May 11, 2021

Cate and Lori have reached the end of season 1! They couldn’t quite figure out how to wrap up their inaugural season, so they decided to get kinda meta with an episode all about season 1 itself.

The besties reflect on their favorite (and least favorite) season 1 episodes, what they learned about themselves (and each other), the truth about Lori's Type A-ness (not anus), and introduce you to Cate's new puppy Nova!

May the 4th be with you! Cate and Lori welcome their first-ever guest: Cate's brother, Pat — an English teacher, college professor, and ultimate Star Wars fan boy, as they discuss the epic film that started a pop culture phenomenon: 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

The trio talks Star Wars trivia, life lessons, tattoos, gaffer tape undies, terminal shyness, flammable Halloween costumes, and of course, The Hero's Journey.

For the cool kids of Beverly Hills, 90210, prom means accidental twinning, radish boutonnières, hoop skirt dresses, and *GASP!* virginity lost. Cate and Lori dish on S1, EP21 aptly titled “Spring Dance” (aka "Brenda Cashes in Her V-Card").

The gals discuss virgins on prom night, all-too-lengthy pap smears, sexy hotel key dangles, postcoital "glowing", and the right to change your mind.

Anti-Drug PSAs of the 1980s

Anti-Drug PSAs of the 1980s

April 20, 2021

DISCLAIMER: As a matter of public health and safety, Cate and Lori strongly believe in the importance of trusted, accessible alcohol and drug education and resources for everyone. The Untitled GenX Podcast does not condone the use of illegal substances and would like to remind you party people to enjoy the legal stuffs responsibly.

On this very special episode, Cate and Lori tackle the weird, wishful-thinking anti-drug PSAs of the 1980s. From "your brain on drugs" to “I learned it by watching you,” the gals have a lot to say about the oversimplified "Just Say No" movement.

The always-responsible ladies talk about drugs in suburbia, uncovering a parent's stash, "moral failures," experimentation, and one very serious Pee-wee Herman.

The Cabbage Patch Kids Panic of 1983

The Cabbage Patch Kids Panic of 1983

March 30, 2021

Cate and Lori revisit the great Cabbage Patch Kids panic of Christmas 1983 (but not before providing a dramatic reading of "The Legend of the Cabbage Patch Kids" for your listening pleasure).

Lori recounts the horror of being the last kid on Earth without a Cabbage Patch Kid, while Cate lends her midwife expertise to a genuine Cabbage Patch Kid "birth". The besties also get real about the pressures of "adoption" as 7 year olds, sex-ed via the cabbage patch, and just saying no to crazy capitalism on principle.
