As described in episode 64 The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
This week we’re talking about the epic and iconic 1994 Australian film “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” as part of our Pride themed month of episodes! This is a Patreon-supporter suggested episode. Thank you Serai and Josh! For just $5 a month, you too could suggest an episode topic and then you’d get to listen to us talk about it. It’s the best deal in podcasting.
There’s a lot of other great content in this episode as well including a tear-jerking and beautiful voicemail from Nicky (who you may remember from our Space Jam episode). Nicky shares a story about what this film meant to her family and we guarantee you’ll cry unless you’re a robot person. We start it all off with another recap of a comic strip Jen missed and we end the episode with a promo for an amazing podcast called Gender Reveal!
Thank you all for being patient with us and we will have another episode up soon!
As described in episode 63 The Celluloid Closet.
This week is technically an episode of Micah Never Saw That and talking about the 1996 documentary The Celluloid Closet. This movie, which covers LGBTQ representation in film, kicks off our first themed month!
This one also features a repeat of a segment Micah thinks is very important and a promo for a podcast we love, Finish It!
These were part of episode 62 Headlines and Comics. Actual comics included here for your reference and edification.
Extra! Extra! We’re back from our hiatus and trying something new. Some might say avant-garde. Others might say, “What the fuck is this?” Enjoy our discussion of the biggest news stories from the day jen arrived in Montana and the most influential comic strips of the time!
CW: Suicide, depression, anxiety
This episode is challenging for a variety of reasons, but we also make each other laugh a lot and we are joined at the beginning by a very special guest: Sadie! She helps us explore the little-known family obstacle course game show, Family Challenge! A lot of thought went into this one, folks.
Listen to the beginning to hear Sadie, listen to the end to hear Jen get real about mental health, and listen to the middle for laughs, but whatever you do, do not watch Family Challenge. Under no circumstances should you search for “Family Challenge Flynn vs. Miller” on that popular video website on the internets. This is not one of those times where we mean you should really watch it as we’re saying not to. We’re not winking. Really don’t watch it. Please.
Yep. We’re flipping the script this week and watching something Micah never saw: Beverly Hills 90210. Micah doesn’t give a hoot about this show, but Jen loved it before she left for Montana and she missed seasons 5 and 6. So, naturally, we watched a few episodes from season 1 and the season 5 premiere and finale. If that sounds very confusing, it was! But this podcast episode is not confusing and very easy to follow — we hope. Enjoy!
RIP Luke Perry
We had the honor of speaking with Chris Ballew for this week’s episode! If you don’t know who Chris Ballew is, I will tell you: He is the lead singer, song writer, and multi-instrumentalist for The Presidents of the United States of America (the band), whose hugely successful and relentlessly fun debut album came out in 1995, so jen missed it.
We talked with Chris about this album, his time as a member of Beck’s band, that time he almost killed Madonna’s dog, the real story behind the song “Peaches,” and of course his new career as a family musician, which was really always his career if you think about it.
Come listen to our local Seattle legend, Chris Ballew!!
Warning: The music clips are loud in this one. Because that’s how they’re properly heard! Deal with it!
And check out Chris’ newer work as Caspar Babypants here!
Our friend and podcasting enthusiast James Anderson invited himself onto our show to do a playlist back when we first started this thing, so we figured we would let him come on so he would get off our asses about it already.
I am of course joking. Last week we listened to Side A and this week we finish up with Side B of James’ Playlist!
