Picture this: You're walking through the mall one day when a noticeably Mormon woman approaches you to let you know that she's got a homemade maxi skirt with a jelly-filled donut pattern all over it in the trunk of her car that she thinks would look *perfect* on you. You follow this denture-sucking lady to her car and she shows you the most fucked up maxi skirt you've ever seen in your life...and it's perfect. The next thing you know, you're peddling your breast milk to every hospital in town, hoping to accrue the capital necessary to buy into the maxi skirt business and start schilling them yourself on Facebook Live. The money starts rolling in and you're living the dream, taking pictures with Mario Lopez and getting even closer to finally retiring your husband. But then one day, you're suddenly expected to sell neon zebra-print leggings that are soaking wet and smell like farts...will you rise to the occasion and hustle and flow your way to the top? Or succumb to crippling debt, default on all of your loans, lose your family, and never work in this town again? This is life in a post-LulaRoe society, and the leggings just ain't as buttery as they used to be. Tune in!

The Curse of Von Dutch (2021): Hamburger on the Moon
1:00:06It's the story that never asked to be told, with all the details that never mattered, over 10 years past its relevance: it's the story, legend, Curse of Von Dutch. Yes, a three-part, THREE HOUR LONG miniseries exploring the trucker hat craze of the early 2000s that cemented Ashton Kutcher as a fashion icon for at least two whole years. However, behind all the glitz and the glam, a wicked web was being woven between 3 deeply troubled men who are all individually desperate for the honor of being deemed the founder of the Von Dutch clothing line. So start up the ol' time machine, travel back to the new millennium, and join us as we try to figure out once and for all just who is to thank for timeless mechanic chic fashion. Tune in!
Free Solo (2018): Vertical Horizon
53:38In the eleventh hour, when few thought we could and most thought we shouldn't, we have managed to exhibit an act of bravery so daring that it's guaranteed to send shockwaves through communities far and wide: We actually recorded a second episode for November! We aren't the only daredevils in this story, though. In National Geographic's documentary, Free Solo, we follow a gentleman named Alex Honnold who, for some reason, insists on repeatedly climbing thousands of feet into the air on the face of many mountains without any ropes, clips, carabiners, parachutes, nets, or anything that would prevent certain death should his little tootsie slip. It's a dangerous, dirty, lonely, albeit high-paying job but somebody's gotta do it! Right? SOMEBODY has to get paid to wear Patagonia and commit extremely perilous and unnecessary acts of athleticism...right, guys? Right?? Tune in!

Join us as we give useful tips for surviving a cancellation (going to jail is involved, trust the process!), fight for Brendan Fraser's right to be a decent actor, make a huge number of cancellations ourselves, and sooo much more!

Woodstock '99: Long Live Carson Daily
1:11:56Since America's inception, there have been countless tragic events that have shaped the nation into what we know it as today: genocide, The Great Depression, the assassination of JFK, 9/11, the list goes on. We go to painstaking lengths to teach our children of our history's mistakes so that we won't be doomed to repeat them. However, there is one national tragedy that has slipped through the fingers of those who should know better for far too long, disappearing into undue obscurity until now: Woodstock '99. In the new HBO documentary, we are treated (subjected) to a behind the scenes look at the inner workings of a music festival so notorious and barbaric that Fred Durst himself had to all but change his entire identity. Join us as we ask the questions we deserve the answer to in this post-Woodstock '99 world we find ourselves living in: Why do white people insist on rolling around in mud? What did Jewel ever do to deserve...this? Why do we mosh? Why aren't more people afraid of Korn? What did the Backstreet Boys ever do to anybody? And most of all, WHY? It's the very festival that walked so that Fyre Fest could run...tune in!
There's Something Wrong With Aunt Diane (2011): Disturbia 2: Next Level
1:18:20It's the very movie that inspired this great (ahem) podcast, a movie that has been discussed at excruciating length throughout the bulk of our 15-year friendship, but ultimately a movie that we said we would never cover...until now. After almost two years of weighing in on topics we had no business commenting on and publicly humiliating ourselves in the process, we finally feel like we are ready to address one of the heaviest-hitting documentaries known to HBO: There's Something Wrong With Aunt Diane. In 2009, supermom Diane Schuler packed up her two children along with her three nieces into her minivan after a weekend camping trip and drove 80mph into oncoming traffic until she would make a violently fatal oncoming collision that would kill her, her daughter, her three nieces, and three other men. After her death, a toxicology report would reveal that she was--for lack of better term--cross-faded to the highest degree. While this may seem like a tragic case of reckless drunk driving, her remaining family refuses to believe it could be as simple as that, going on the media warpath to clear Diane's name in the eyes of their community. Join us as we dissect everything we know about this case, drawing our own conclusions, and even managing to have some LoLs where there none to be had. Also, drink every time Jen accidentally refers to Diane as "Danielle." Tune in!
**BONUS EPISODE/PATREON EXCLUSIVE** The Sex & the City Movie (2008): Poughkeepsing the Faith
1:44:59It's the movie we all asked for but that none of us deserved; the downright offensive, albeit lovable sequel to the coveted, yet problematic series that shaped a nation of insecure, but empowered women: Sex and the City. Join us as we catch up with our beloved frenemies Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte as they navigate their twilight years living, laughing, and loving in the very city that chewed them up and swallowed them whole. Between cheating husbands and runaway grooms, vanilla sex and horny dogs, Carrie's Mexicoma and Charlotte's Poukeepsied pants, we learn that the more things change, the more they stay the same. And just like that, we ask you to tune in!
Lorena E. 4 (The Cycle of Abuse): Phallic Host
1:03:56After a long, difficult, and gut-wrenching journey, the story of John Wayne and Lorena Bobbitt finally comes to an end. Following extensive court proceedings and a media firestorm, Lorena is acquitted of malicious wounding and avoids jail time. After 45 days in a mental hospital and the dust settles, our Lord and Savior Lorena is finally free to move on from her abuser and the court system, which she does with effortless grace, propelled by her mission to help women who had shared experiences to her. John Wayne, on the other hand, uses his new-found "fame" to get more experimental dick surgery (BIG botch job), does a series of ill-advised porn videos, gets hired (and fired) as a doorman at a brothel, and winds up in and out of prison after a series of domestic violence offenses and poorly carried-out TJ Maxx swindles. Join us as we kiss Lorena goodbye, and have one last LoL at John Wayne. Tune in!
