What do we know? So much…yet nearly nothing at all! Let’s explore in conversation with some of our smartest, most experty pals.






69 – I WANT A D*CK (Oral Sex w/ Casey Easton)

If you didn't consider the title of this episode disclaimer enough, consider yourself DISCLAIMED: this episode is about SEX and we kindly ask that children, prudes, exes and immediate family members steer clear of this one. Now, for the rest of you perverts, are you ever in for a treat! Melody and best bud/former cohost, Sarah Wright, are sitting down with Casey Easton of Erotic Embodiment for the Teach Me Tiger season finale to talk all things ORAL SEX and more! We cover cunnilingus and...


68 – So Why Do I Feel Like A Psychopath? (Attachment Theory w/ Viara Mileva)

Viara Mileva, PhD is back, with our good buddy Liz Cooper, to unpack childhood attachment styles, and pontificate on how they affect us and our interpersonal relationships as adults. Viara is wearing her former academic hat (she works now as a photographer,) as she spent years in the lab studying how primary caregivers and small children interacted and bonded (or in some cases, how they didn't do those things.) We break down the different attachment styles, how they're formed, and what they...


67 – Stories With My Pa (w/ Justin Starkweather)

Back by popular demand, it's Melody's father Justin - and just in time for Father's Day. He's been working on a list of tales yet untold, and he's here to share them with us all (ever lucky!) Justin has been interviewed in several previous episodes of Teach Me Tiger - Episode 44, My Daddy Is A Ballerina, Episode 55, Trying Different Things, and Episode 58, The Hippie Years - telling stories from his wildly eventful and interesting life. Justin felt he'd left some good ones out, so here we...


Vintage Classic – 26 – Millennialitis (Self-Care w/ Kim Murphy)

Originally aired February 28, 2019. Hustle, hustle, hustle, baby! Kim Murphy, the ultimate healing hustler, is here to help us simplify our highly saturated lives. How do we tune in, instead of tuning out? What do we really want? Where in our lives are we leaking energy? WHO ARE WE?? AND WHERE THE HELL AM I??? After a real fun game of Icebreakers, we dive deep into the Millennial-and perhaps Xennial-condition that we’ve dubbed Millennialitis. We talk about detecting, avoiding and dealing...


66 – Quarantine Ketchup (Pandemmie Check-In w/ Liz Cooper)

Best friends make the best fun, and we've all missed the BEST FUN with former co-host of the show and Melody's longtime good buddy, ELIZABETH COOPER! (Insert airhorns here.) This episode is a bit of a departure, in that it's not educational in the slightest, but you know what?! It's a global pandemic, the world's on fire, and we're going rogue! In today's epi, we are reflecting on the last 13 months of pandemmie life - unexpected perks, phone addiction, pandemic-tainment, a mental health...

65 – Power Embarrassed (Comedy w/ Claire Haus)

Welcome to our comedy-cast, featuring the hilarious and ever clever Claire Haus, who we'll call a comedy "semi-pro."

We discuss why the popular kids don't get to be comics, how to get into improv, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, neverending failures, favourite comedians, online dating, thick skins and so much more! If you would like...


64 – Can I Axe You A Question? (Axe Murder w/ Scarlet Christiaans)

Lemme axe you something: have you ever been curious about why axe murder is such a thing in pop culture? We were curious too, and although we may not have all the answers, we have a great time pontificating on the question. Meet Scarlet Christiaans. She's pod host Melody's dear childhood friend. She's also very funny and smart and obviously devastatingly good-looking. In this episode, Melody and Scarlet talk about the history of the axe and axe murder. They tell the fascinating stories of...


63 – On Tatooine (Tattooing w/ Sarah Wright)

They're BACK! It's Sarah Wright and your host Melody slinging salacious jokes and talking tattooing.

So grab your rusty olfa knife and get out your...


62 – Twenty-Something (2020 Year In Review)

Was 2020 a dumpster fire? Yes. Yes, it was. But you know what? We managed to release some pretty stellar episodes in spite of all of that. There were technical challenges as we moved to remote recording for all of our guests. There were social challenges as well - as in, we all wanted to play with our friends! Listening through the episodes we released this past year, however, helped us remember that 2020 wasn't a total wash. It had its peaks (and valleys) and it wasn't totally traumatic to...


61 – A Good Tall Time (Online Dating w/ Kim Angell)

Cameron, to talk about cool stuff that was happening for queer people in the Weimar Republic, and how the Nazis ruined it, like they ruin everything.

59 – Jim McEwen Is Not A Writer (w/ Jim McEwen & Ryan Urquhart)

This week Melody is joined by cohost (and podcast co-creator) Sarah Wright, in conversation with Jim McEwen & Ryan Urquhart. On the semi-educational scale, this rates low. We are mostly just shooting the shit, as they say. We talk a bit about how Jim isn't a writer, despite doing lots of author-type things. We also surprise Ryan with messages from some of his nearest and dearest wishing him well on his impending move to Western Canada. And we tell some Ryan stories of our own. There's an...

56 – Evil Geniuses? (Roman Polanski and Leni Riefenstahl w/ Melody & Liz)

Melody and Liz are back at it, nerding out on another research project for your listening pleasure. This week we're talking about some seriously problematic filmmakers: Roman Polanski, Leni Riefenstahl and even a touch of the Woody Allen. Undeniably talented, they all have experienced huge levels of success in their careers. Polanski (and Allen) have gone on to work with A-list actors and receive accolades and major awards still to this day. Leni Riefenstahl, AKA Hitler's Filmmaker, didn't...
