I Don’t Like the Sparking Joy Thing

We're talking women's health today! Do you have high cholesterol? If the answer is "no, I'm not a middle-aged man," then keep listening. Physicals may be something you haven't thought of since high school sports eligibility but we're bringing them up again now as grown-a** adults. We also thought it would be fun to talk about what little tricks we use to help with focus and productivity. There's so much out there vying for our attention, and it's easy to fall into a wormhole of IG posts and...


I can’t imagine what your eHarmony profile would look like

In this episode we get down to the nitty-gritty about what shows and movies we're putting on when we get 5 minutes to ourselves.


Adult Youtube Toy Video

New year new pod topics! We're diving in today with some real and faux talk about Space, our New Year's Resolution wrap-up (some of us have more serious goals than others) and our topic of the day: birth order!


Running is my White Whale

It's the beginning of a whole new year! Do you believe in resolutions? We're breaking that down in today's episode. Shocking, we know. This episode is a bit shorter than usual as we gear up for 2019, but we did talk about a few things you may want more information on: You talked about a few different books. What's the book about Alice? That was What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. The other one we talked about is called Grit by Angela Duckworth. What was that workout plan Hannah likes? That...


Things we Forgot to Say 2k18

Today we're talking about why we'll never fall for a "bring your kids to meet Santa, Elsa, and Anna" event again and if that makes us boring moms, we are OK with it! We've had a great few months kicking off our podcast and we have some notes on our first episodes to continue the conversation. And we want to hear from you! What was your favorite episode of 2018? Head on over to our IG @agoodideapod and let us know! Things we talked about this episode: Where can I find that Vox youtube video...


Strangers Don’t Talk To Me

It's almost Christmas, and we're here to talk about Santa, elf on the shelf, people asking us about our library books, and people refusing to talk to us at all. Other critical issues: Why is there no Crazy Rich Asians: India Edition yet Kevin Kwan?? Tinder Founder: we may be mad at you, assuming you are who we think you are. Unless you want to advertise with us. And the real topic on our minds today: self care. How do you practice this? We scratch the surface in this conversation but we want...


I have fremdschämen about where this is going…

This week we’re diving into famous feuds, Aldi finds (*ahem* we mean what SANTA is finding from Aldi,) a little bit of language-learning, our *interesting* Christmas music and movie choices, how we consume scary movies, and that’s not even what brought us to the table! What makes you feel the most insecure? We thought we’d put out a nice feel-good episode by putting ourselves and our friends on the spot to find out what is the biggest chink in our armor, and we probably subsequently burned a...


I’m Breezy!

Whip out the wine glasses, people, it's been a day! We're breaking down the reasons why women can be so freaking tired at the end of the day and why we can feel so unseen as well. Ever sat down and thought "this is the first time I've been off my feet in 12 hours!" Cry into your wine and settle in with your fashion sweatshirts as we talk about it together. We see you friend! Weigh in on this episode over on Instagram @agoodideapod and let us know your take. Want to follow up on some of the...


You Will Not Earn Me

In Episode 4, we're diving into the thing we all love to love and love to hate: social media! We have some pretty different feelings on it. 50% of us decided that we're done with Facebook (sort of) and 100% of us will never be able to figure out Google +. (In all fairness, we don't think Google has even figure out Google +.) And what's our take on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show? This roller coaster is just getting started, so buckle up because when we start talking about sabotaging our...


I Can’t Handle Your Dream Life

How much sleep do you need every night? As usual we're talking about hot off the presses stuff today. What could be contributing to our lack of sleep? And why is Hannah suddenly thinking this partnership may be material for a future "it sounded like a good idea at the time" conversation? Some interesting facts are coming to light about Caroline and we all have some follow up questions, so let's get to it today and we'd love to have you weigh in on which of us is more normal. Here's a look at...


I Think Communes Get a Bad Name

Long-denim skirts, kumbaya, kool-aid, and sharing all our worldly possessions? Sign us up! This week, Caroline lets us in on the one thing we've all been dying to know: her top 3 favorite communes. Buckle up everyone. Also, midterm elections, amiright? The year of the woman is going strong, and we'll get into some of our hot takes from midterms, as well as what we hope is priority one now that the ladies are in charge. And if you joined us last week, you know that Caroline was *real* excited...


Ryan H, You D-Bag!

Hey-oh it's our first episode! What better way to kick off the pod than by doing a deep dive into personality tests. Today we discuss the Enneagram, the Myers-Briggs, and the 5 Love Languages. We also get into some things we're currently loving, and what we did recently that sounded like a good idea at the time but ended up being a flop. Check us out on Instagram @agoodideapod and let us know your thoughts! Share your stories that sounded like a good idea at the time and we'll laugh along...


Let’s Do This!

It Sounded Like a Good Idea at the Time... To start a podcast while we raise a gaggle of small children and try to succeed professionally plus keep an active gym routine! We're Caroline and Hannah, and we want to chat! We're bringing our deep-dive conversations about being moms, loving our work, and trying to make it all happen as modern women to the public so we can laugh about our foibles along the way. We'd love to have you join in the conversation, so find us on Instagram @agoodideapod...
