Episode 30: Shit Happens During the Day, Literally

Once again, it started as an innocent Get To Know Us question and turned into a full-blown episode. We are joined by Tiffany from (A)broad in Education and super special guest Thuan (check out his foodie Instagram @travel2f00d) for a robust discussion about the ridiculous expense of bras, underwear cleanliness/rotation, and going commando.

Moral to the Story: Buy new underwear every six months, don’t be like us and have them for years.

Episode 23: And for Love’s Sake…Reduce your Expectations

This week we talk sex, relationships and what cheating means thanks to the help of Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert episode with psychotherapist Esther Perel.

Moral to the Story: Strive to the the best human you can be; it is ok to be vulnerable and communicate.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Get to know Tamu and Mallory: Tamu flips the script and asks Mallory the hard hitting question that dominated the internet for maybe 3 whole days; do you wash your legs when you take a shower? Some key takeaway’s:
  1. Not washing your body is gross.
  2. Whore’s baths are perfectly fine.
  3. Loofahs and scrubbies are good.
  4. Bar soap washing.
  5. Washcloths are gross.
  6. Tamu only does a bar soap wash in cases of emergency.
  7. T. Swift shaves and therefore doesn’t wash her legs.
  8. Friction is needed to get clean…among other things.
  9. You should not have to Google how to take a shower!
