Podgecast Ep 58 - Cheapskates

What do you do to save money? Christina and John have laughs along the way of trying to keep as many greenbacks in their bank account as possible. They talk about the creative and perhaps not so appealing ways they avoid spending money. ***We totally see we could have used the ¢ and the $ signs for the "C" and "S" in "CHEAPSKATES," but honestly it looked dumb.***


Podgecast Ep 57 - Brave Little Teacher

Between Christina and John, we have two education degrees, numerous years working in schools and a BUTTLOAD of opinions on education. We picketed with our local teachers when they were on strike and at the same time, we have seen first hand what happens when education doesn't work for the students. After seeing the film, Won't Back Down with the always amazing Viola Davis, we decided to spend a little bit o' time talking about education and what it means to be a teacher today.


Podgecast Ep 56 - FOOD*

*(AKA - we had a really rough couple of weeks and we just wanted to talk about something silly and fun and about the places we like to go around town.) Do you think we had any life lessons about what and where we eat? Yeah... it's us, so of course there are.


Podgecast Ep 55 - DISCOMFORTABLE

Discomfort. Comfort. Able. Discomfortable. We need to walk through the various stages of these places to get to a place of true living. As we do this we can also validate the needs and rights of others. It means WORK. It means being out of our comfort zones. But it also means we are all capable and ABLE to change not only ourselves...but the lives and rights of others. It’s ok to be’s a new word for a new way of thinking.


Podgecast Ep 54 - French Fries, American Lies

So there's this story of a man who bamboozled a number of good people on his way to the top of an empire. He swindled and conned and connived and lied and lied again. Then there's the story of The Founder! (See what I did there?) It originally started out as a simple assignment from a fellow podcaster (@africanprincessinamerica) Leave it to Christina and John to turn a simple assignment into a whole "thing" about the state of the nation. But it was right there, we couldn't help ourselves....


Podgecast Ep 53 - Cut Those Strings

Oof. This is a doozy! We're starting our second year off RIGHT with our longest Podgecast ever. We're sorry it's so crazy long, but it's an important topic. Why do we victimize others? Why do we allow ourselves to be victims? Even worse, why do we MAKE OURSELVES into victims? The book might be 40-years-old, but the ideas are just as important today as they were in the 70's. Break this week's Podgecast into chunks if you have to, but definitely have a listen!


Podgecast Ep 52 - Podgiversary!

Maybe our math is screwy. This is our 52nd week of doing this here little Podgecast. That makes it a year, right? (52 weeks in a year) But our first episode was 9/22/2017... Maybe it's the metric system? Who knows. The point is, this is our "PODGIVERSARY" Podgecast. We talk about where we've been, where we're going and the process it took to get here today! Thank you for joining us on the journey so far!


Podgecast Ep 42.5 - Remembering Dave

You may have remembered hearing about our friend Dave DeRosa in the Podgecast. He was supposed to visit on Friday, July 6. (We were hoping to talk him into recording a Podgecast WITH us!) He died Wednesday, July 4. We're trying to wrap our brains around this sudden, tragic loss. He was John's oldest friend, they've known each other since age 4. Coming off our topics of "Finding Your Peeps" and "Friends" we thought it fitting to include him in this recent theme with this bonus, SPECIAL...


Podgecast Ep 42 - Enemies over Friends

One would think an innocuous, sweet show about friendship would bring two people together... In this house, that was not the case. Christina, Ms. Sunshine and Rainbows, embraced the silliness and sweetness of the show while John, Mr. Crankypants, begrudgingly sat through the entire 10 seasons of the series in one year. (He freely admits, a moderate percentage of those episodes were spent napping...) Listen as we have a “spirited” discussion about Friends.


Podgecast Ep 41 - Finding Your Peeps

Why do families have to be our "peeps?" The only thing that brings us together? People's ages, jobs, lifestyles, families, philosophies are different but you know when your vibe matches up with someone else's. This is when you know you've found "your people." Listen as we discuss our paths to FIND OUR PEEPS!


Podgecast Ep 40 - What Makes Us Cry

Oof. Who's idea was this??? Christina and John - taking a page from the amazing CRYBABIES podcast (which has sadly shut down) - talk about what makes us cry. How many times can adults cry on a podcast? If this were a drinking game and you took a drink every time we cried, you'd be DRUNK!


Podgecast Ep 39 - Adventures In Air

When the ability to travel is limited, what do we do? Go nowhere? HECK NO! We find the way to travel, even if it's discovering a town that's a half hour away! Listen as Christina and John talk about their Adventures In Air(bnb).


Podgecast Ep 38 - Smashing Pedestals

Here's another one of society's awful constructs. The pedestal. Why are people still on them? Why haven't we smashed the hell out of them? Why do we put them on there in the first place? It's time to dust off that wooden baseball bat and get to smashing!


Podgecast Ep 37 - The Sixth Borough

Why did we move from the Bronx to the Poconos? Christina and John talk about all the reasons there was such a migration from NYC to The Poconos over the last 30 years.


Podgecast Ep 36 - The Parable Of The Broken Chair

Didn't think it was possible to record a Podgecast based on buying a replacement chair, did you? Well, we proved YOU wrong! Leave it to Christina and John to turn replacing a broken office chair into a series of life lessons.


Podgecast Ep 35 - Dark Side Of The Mom

The handwritten and colored cards are adorning the refrigerator. You’ve worn your macaroni art necklace. And you’ve accepted your chore coupon, which, let’s be honest, will never get redeemed. Motherhood is truly a miracle. But there’s another side. A dark side. In The Dark Side of the Mom, Christina and John talk about the darker, far less glamorous side of the world’s most thankless job.


Podgecast Ep 34 - A Conversation with Dr. Sandy

Dr. Sandra Eckard,(Sandy, to her friends!) a professor at East Stroudsburg University, hung out in the basement and talked with us about everything from our beloved local theater, to women on film to the #metoo movement... and especially about our mutual love of pop culture (and how best to bring that geekiness into the classroom.)


Podgecast Ep 33 - The Skinny on the Fat

We started off as two scrawny kids in the Bronx. We didn’t stay that way though. Have a listen to one of our most vulnerable podcasts as we discuss food, health, childhood stress, societal pressures, weight loss surgery, emotional eating, body changes after babies and why we hope to dump it all and be our true selves. Grab a donut and “get the skinny” on the fat.


Podgecast Ep 32 - Toxic Masculinity

On this week's Podgecast, Christina and John talk about: -The definition of toxic masculinity -Tim Winton's new book and his speech on toxic masculinity where he defined it as terrorism. -How...


Podgecast Ep 31 - Get Your Geek On!

In this week's Podgecast, Christina and John discuss: -What it's like being a geek today. Starting off with Mason Ramsey, the kid who became an internet sensation by singing a Hank Williams song in an Illinois Walmart. -The mixed messages about being a geek for both girls AND boys -Leading into Christina's early love of rocks and minerals which stretches to her today: The NY/NJ Gem and Mineral Show Macungie Mineral...
