Bad Faith Contrarian

6/17/2021
In this absolute doozy of an episode, our asker hopes to save a long-term friendship that has recently plummeted down the toilet. Unfortunately, his friend has absorbed and accepted a whole lot of questionable-to-terrible opinions from YouTube. What can a person do when their friend becomes a bad faith contrarian? We're not quite sure, but other topics include: coping mechanisms, flushing turds, and treating an unreasonable person as though they are a reasonable person.

Just Some Freakin’ Guy

5/15/2021
I'm fixated on one friend who doesn't seem as invested as I am. In fact, I find myself obsessing about our level of communication.

Also introducing Susan, Trin's new Texas neighbor. Content warnings for discussion of COVID and therapy.

Brand New Baby Bi

5/7/2021
Alright folks, let's say it one more time, with feeling: Crushes are mostly meaningless. And past crushes? Extremely meaningless. This week, we'll discuss coming out piece by piece, tappin' some mapes, and how no gay+ people should ever have problems ever again. Quick edit: You don't have to be straight, gay, or bi+.

Any Trash Animal Will Do

4/15/2021
You are cool and interesting, and people want your time. Unfortunately, you are a mere mortal human. You can't just give out your time and energy like free samples at Costco. In this episode, we'll discuss being present for, but not solving, your friends' problems. Additionally, Seinfeld is bad, Jenn goes for a walk, and Trin subtly reveals that she doesn't understand what other people eat. One correction: The Leaning Tower of Pisa is doing just fine. Apparently, the leaning isn't a big...

It's springtime now folks, and you know what that means: everybody's itching to go out, and everybody's getting vaccinated. Wooo!

Clarify, Reassure, and Move on

4/2/2021
When seeking advice about joking around with your pals, asking two people who have a podcast about friendship and also occasionally write comedy for a living is a pretty solid place to start. Today we’ll talk about being too depressed to find anything funny, being too funny to shut up, and being a Sensitive Badass. Please note that in this episode, it sounds like we recommend the movie Emily in Paris. We do not. That was a joke. CWs:

You're a Billy Zane

3/25/2021
Roommates: can't live with 'em, can't afford an apartment without 'em. Sometimes they're friends, and sometimes they're just another human being stinking up your home. It's time to set some ground rules, bust out some clear communication, and stock up on hella coping mechanisms. We also discuss murdering Leonardo DiCaprio, the subtleties of living with a person with ADHD, and how deeply mad we are about people skipping in line for the COVID vaccine.

Happy Hour, Am I Right??

Fuckboy Book Club

3/4/2021
A very nice bisexual woman has been repeatedly failed by the members of her book club—and not just in the normal ways, like never reading any of the books! Instead, they're failing her in much more disappointing, homophobic, misogynist ways, and quite frankly, we are pretty miffed. Join us for a rousing discussion of getting good grades from your therapist, wielding your privilege, and just quitting your horrible book club already. CWs: The phrase "mirrors, windows, and sliding doors" was...

Eggs, Eggs in a Basket

2/25/2021
Extroverts in the pandemic. Much like dark matter, our calculations suggest that they must exist, but we've had no hard evidence or firsthand accounts... UNTIL NOW. Our asker wants to know if she should just give up and move on from her less-active friendships. What's a socially starved extrovert to do? This week we also discuss writing exercises, Trin's scalp, and how deeply angry we are about the question we're going to answer next week. CW: Hair loss (3m42s - 6m02s) Meet our Extrovert...

What Your Screams Mean

Every DnD Group has a Dave

2/4/2021
No matter how cool you may be (and we're pretty sure you're super cool), every human being in history has experienced rejection. This week, our asker wonders if it's worth reaching back out to a group of friends who removed her from their ongoing DnD game, but does not consider that she herself may have done something wrong. Interesting!
