Susan and Jerilyn are a dynamic duo who hold down the podcasting fort while Amy is out of town. Want to hear about our recent camping experience that involved drunk shirtless dancing Russians? We tell that story. We play a rousing game of Fact Or Fiction: The Reality TV edition. What else? We have some nice callers call in to ask questions and give US advice. There’s some tv talk too – Game Of Thrones, Bates Motel and the 2nd season of Girls. A dear listener writes in that she has been enjoying the wonders of her vibrating pleasure orbs so much that she has developed hip problems! Whoo, that’s a lot of pleasure orb-ing. Susan does The Flourishing Test, an 8-question quiz that measures well-being. Seems like her mid-life crisis is over.
Or is it?

Susan and Jerilyn double down in this episode. They go down a rabbit hole that leads them to talk of stripping, teenage speed freaks and crispy pig cheeks. Huh? It’s all true. And! More Stephen King News. He is busy this year. The sequel to ‘The Shining’. The prequel to ‘The Shining’. On another note, Susan gives advice to an 18 yr old on how to make ends meet in Los Angeles when you don’t have a job. OK. What else? Well:
- Have you seen Vincent Kartheiser in the movie Another Day In Paradise? So good.
- How much do we love our recent iTunes reviews? You wrote one, right?
- Could you eat Roast Bone Marrow and Parsley Salad by yourself here? It’s abattoir chic.

Boob jobs, personal problems, modern classics – it’s all in the mix on this week’s show. Amy breaks it down for a listener who writes in about a struggle for inner happiness. And Jerilyn reports on nail polish for men: Alpha nail pens in colors of ‘cocaine’, ‘gasoline’ and ‘burning rubber’. Susan is MIA this week but we keep it together with some scintillating convo and tips for navigating the world. And for the lovely listener who wrote it wanting a pep-talk for getting back into the dating scene, we pep talk. Blendr! Tindr! J-Date! eHarmony! Plenty of Fish! We’re your wingmen, natch. Also, Jerilyn suggests a book: How To Be A Grown Up by Stacy Kaiser. If you read it, let us know if you love it, hate it or are completely indifferent.

There’s a fine line between cheerleading and being obnoxious, as we find out in this episode. We talk David Bowie’s new release ‘The Next Day’, 10 years since his last album, people! We challenge ourselves with the ‘Name That David Bowie Cover’ game – easier if you have this in your music collection. Also the release of DETROIT: An American Autopsy by Charlie Duff, we are holding the optimistic hope for the revitalization of Detroit!! It’s all “Deja New’ – the term for once you discover something, then you notice it everywhere!

KINDLE FIRE CONTEST is on! We explain the rules, where to enter and why we want you to win the Kindle Fire. That is the first piece of business on the agenda then we move on to our most popular new segment ‘Show Me The Meaning Of The Word’ to introduce new words and important concepts to the audience. Butterfly sex! Staircase Wit! Creepy Pasta! You are going to love creepypasta as much as Jerilyn does. We answer a question from a panicked pregnant listener, reassuring her that a new baby WON’T ruin her life. And she will sleep, eventually. Then we put on our urban activist hats and brainstorm on how to save the city of Detroit! Impending bankruptcy, declining population, urban blight – it sounds dire when you listen to the NPR Weekend Edition segment on the largest municipal bankruptcy in the country. We’re hoping our urban planning ideas will trickle over to the right ears.

Huh. The more we talk about sex, the more listeners we get! Well, it’s not just a play for better stats when we continue to demystify bodily fluids – it’s 3rd wave feminism! And money too, everybody likes to hear us talk about cold hard cash, right? Listener Elizabeth calls in with a revealing message about not only female ejaculate BUT ALSO personal finance. Yay! Hmmmm. What else? Well, we talk about the challenge of asking for a raise, the birthday party Jerilyn threw last Saturday night and the joy of smoked hummus. Do you have a topic we can tackle?
