Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. (1970)

January 19, 2021

Today we’re paying homage to Judy Blume’s beloved, and yes, controversial young adult novel, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. Because this 1970 literary classic holds a special place in the heart of nearly every GenX woman, we’ll explore the book’s timeless themes involving friendship, puberty, and the hard questions we dare ask while taking those brave first steps toward self-discovery.

And yes, we spill secret sisterhood stories involving our first "menstroo-ation", first kisses, and first bras, along with our earliest sex ed memories and the wild wondering of what it all means.

Cyndi Lauper - She’s So Unusual (1983)

Cyndi Lauper - She’s So Unusual (1983)

January 12, 2021

Hey guys, today we’re singing the praises of singer, songwriter, actress, feminist, activist, and all-around queen, Cyndi Lauper and her breakout 1983 debut album, She’s So Unusual. We dance deep into the album’s bops, ballads, and sometimes unusual music videos.

In true Cyndi form, things get a little colorful as we talk about our suburban childhood, middle school cafeteria lunches, phone rules, crazy nights past 8 PM, and that very real single teardrop pain of running away from love.

Cocktail (1988)

January 5, 2021

Baby, it's cold outside, and since we won’t be escaping to a tropical paradise anytime soon, we thought a round of cocktails and dreams might help warm our spirits. Pull up a bar stool as we drink up 1988’s blockbuster film, Cocktail starring Tom Cruise, Elisabeth Shue, Bryan Brown, and Kelly Lynch.

Sip and stay for the convo involving vacation romances, pretty criers, sex on the beach, rooting for the wrong person, surprise twins, and water as the ultimate cure-all. We'll drink to that!

FRIENDS - “The One with All the Resolutions” (1999)

FRIENDS - “The One with All the Resolutions” (1999)

December 28, 2020

Happy almost New Year! As y’all know, it hasn’t been our day, our week, our month, or even our year. And since we can’t ring in the New Year with friends IRL, we figured our TV friends, Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and Phoebe were the next best thing. Join us as we revisit season 5, episode 11 of Friends, “The One with All the Resolutions”!

And because besties tell each other everything, we gossip about sex at midnight, swamp ass, leather while pregnant, farting on a first date, and offer our heartfelt message of love to you in the new year. Cheers!

(Drunk) Die Hard (1988)

December 21, 2020

Welcome to the party, pals. Today we’re talking about the iconic Christmas (?) blockbuster, Die Hard. We invite you to “come out the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…” as we dive deep into the elevator shaft of the film’s titillating trivia, it’s place in the great Christmas film debate, and its die hard fan base ... all while getting sloshed on spiked eggnog.

And oh yeah, we chat maiden names, crippling telephone shyness, wild Christmas parties, and "Huey Lewis's" surprise cameo in the film. Yippee ki yay, melon farmers.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (1983) - TV Movie

December 14, 2020

Today we're bringing you Cate's ALL-TIME FAVORITE Christmas movie from her childhood, 1983’s The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Full disclosure: Lori had never seen or even heard about this ABC made-for-TV movie starring Loretta Swit and Fairuza Balk, but at only 48 minutes long and available to stream for free, she was up for some wholesome and heartwarming holiday family viewing.

Join in the holiday spirit as we chat about being unsupervised kids in the '80s, the necessity (and danger) of super long telephone cords, the burden of carrying seven names, kids smoking cigars, and the beauty of offering grace.

Wham! - Last Christmas (1984)

December 8, 2020

This Christmas, we’re giving our hearts to someone special (psst! YOU) as we revisit Wham’s chart-topping, toe-tapping hits, “Last Christmas” and “Everything She Wants”.

Released as a double A-side in December 1984, we’re diving deep into the dramatic music videos, heartbreaking lyrics, and too-good trivia that make both songs karaoke favorites to this day. We also chat about the awkwardness of hanging out with an ex, the risk of breaking hip while sledding, and the pure cinematic value of strategically placed bed sheets, ah-ha ah, ah-ha ah, doo doo doo, la, la, la, la, la.

WE ARE THE YOUTH GONE WILD! Join us as we rock out to an album near and dear to our 8th grade hearts — Skid Row’s 1989 self-titled debut album. 

Crank the volume as we discuss all the *ahem* feelings Sebastian Bach’s low-rise leather pants and high cheekbones gave us, while revisiting the music videos of the singles from this anthem-rich album.

Come for the bottle-throwing, bad-behaving Bach, stay for the candid convos involving bedside table drawers, online dating, and of course, Gilmore Girls.
