Poetry can be really delightful, but it can also feel really inaccessible. In this episode, we talked about our favorite poems, how to discover poems you love (and disregard everything else tbh), and then how to find poems that fit your specs. Stick around after the outro to hear our editor Lucas reading some selections. This episode was produced b…
 
Summer is the time of year when we’re all supposed to be footloose and fancy-free, cavorting in the sunshine and enjoying all kinds of outdoor social activities. But for some of us, summer is about making it through three or so months of being extremely sweaty, having to decide between clothing that’s functional or stylish, and feeling immense pres…
 
We recorded this episode at the end of June, so we decided to talk a bit more about more of our queer (and queer-themed) faves. We have a ton of book recommendations to share, some podcasts to check out, a few video games, and a handful of queer miscellany. This episode was produced by Rachel and Sally and edited by Lucas Nguyen. Our logo was desig…
 
We decided to keep the Pride-themed conversation rolling, and this time around we discuss our favorite movies (and one episode of TV) that feature queer characters, queer love/romance, and queer stories. We cover ‘90s indie movies, sweet romcoms, cult hits, period dramas, and a lot more. This episode was produced by Rachel and Sally and edited by L…
 
Every year when June rolls around, a whole bunch of conversations continue and other ones begin anew—conversations about identity, representation, safety, freedom, liberation, and…rainbow-colored corporate logos. So we decided to jump right into a few of those topics, and share our thoughts on things like cops at Pride (no), kink at Pride (yes), wh…
 
A quick note from us: When we recorded this episode, Israel was five days into its violent offensive on Gaza. Since then Israel’s aggression has only escalated, killing as of this writing, more than 200 hundred Palestinians. Hamas rockets have killed about 10 Israelis. Please check out the resources below and join us in supporting human rights for …
 
In this episode, we talk all about how to construct apologies that sincerely express empathy, regret for having messed up, and a promise to do better in the future. Once you’ve taken the time to really think about what you’re saying and why you’re saying it, offering a solid apology isn’t so elusive. We also talk about getting better at receiving a…
 
On an upcoming episode, we will be answering your questions about friendships—starting them, ending them, maintaining them, etc. If you have a question or need advice (or want to hear our thoughts about being or having a friend in 2021), we want you to ask us.

Recent polling reveals that about 41% of people care a medium amount about their birthdays. So where does this leave the 23% of people who are indifferent to their birthdays? And the 23% of people who care a huge amount about their birthdays? We get into all of it in this episode. We discuss our own feelings about birthdays and posit some theories …
 
A quick note from us: We recorded this episode before March 17th, when eight people, six of them women of Asian descent, were murdered in an act of anti-Asian, misogynist, white supremacist violence in Atlanta. Join us in standing against white supremacy in all its forms and taking action in solidarity with AAPI communities. Here are orgs to follow…
 
It’s March! And that means we are legally required to talk about spring cleaning. Granted, neither of us are big spring cleaners, but that’s because we’re pretty committed year-round, clean-as-we-goers. And, oh boy, could we talk endlessly about our favorite products and tips for cleaning and organizing. But for now, we’ll just start with a single …
 
You might have noticed we took a week off. Well, that's because Rachel was recovering from a mild case of COVID. Now we're back, and we decided to use this episode to talk about what it was like to test positive and what "mild" COVID even is. We also talked about which aspects of having COVID were the most surprising, and what was particularly help…
 
Now that we’re nine episodes in, it felt like a perfect time to answer some get-to-know-you questions so that you can learn a bit more about us. We talk about our first jobs, what we’re reading right now, how we like our eggs, and much more. Also, this is the episode where we prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the right icebreakers can be a lot …
 
In this episode, we talk all about our favorite ways to prevent and deal with unforeseen dangers and possible accidents in the home. We promise it’s actually a pretty fun topic!

Happy romjul, everyone! That’s right, it’s the week between Christmas and New Year’s, which means it’s a great time to reflect on the year we’ve had. 2020 has been….a lot. But there were bright spots—like the things we read, watched, listened to, and delighted in. Some things made us laugh, others helped us reflect, learn, and think, and others wer…
 
It’s still gift-giving season so we’re still talking about giving and receiving gifts. In this episode, we’re reading and discussing two recent gift-related posts from the Am I The Asshole? subreddit, and digging into how habits and values around gift-giving and receiving show up in different relationships. Then we do our first ever listener mailba…
 
Now that it’s December, a lot of people are thinking about a topic we like to obsess about year round: gifts. Giving them, receiving them, gift etiquette, gift guides, you name it. If it’s gift-related, we’re interested in it. In this episode we’ll talk about our own Grand Unified Theory of Gift Guides and how to use them, as well as some of our al…
 
With COVID-19 transmission rates ramping up all over the country, we’re continuing to hunker down in our homes—and lots of folks are doing the same, or are returning to the stay-at-home lifestyle of the spring of 2020. Because no person can live on Netflix and Zoom get-togethers alone, we’re going to talk about creative ideas for making time at hom…
 
We firmly believe that one of the best ways to get through times that are bad/dark/weird is to anticipate needing a little extra help dealing when things go sideways and plan accordingly. In this episode, we talked all about what each of us has in our own break-in-case-of-dark-times kits. You’ll get tons of recommendations, from movies, TV shows, a…
