S2E4: Meet Josh!

Have you streamed last week’s episode?

What’s up, lil poods? Buckle up for a sultry episode; we have a special guest in the house! Korn is our religion, woven memories of wonder have been made, and exoskeletons of joints are scattered amongst us. Join us in meeting a man of plants, contemplation, and California Quails: Josh Corder!
Creature comforts this episode? Redbull is definitely the most shocking in today’s lineup. In addition, we are normalizing cannabis by partaking in not one, not two, but three strains throughout this week’s podcast:  Double Dream, Peanut Butter Souffle, and Mimosa! No wonder we have sweat dripping down to our elbows. 
First things first, we always have Great Housekeeping to attend to! Some people rush home to kick up their feet, some rush home to wash the dishes and wipe down surfaces with too much enthusiasm. I think you all know what kind of gals we are! The California Quail, is indeed, the state bird of California and a huge part of the history, spirituality and lifestyle of the Kumeyaay peoples, mentioned last episode! Our special guest today is also, indeed, a California Quail. Let us wait no further, please get to know our very special guest, Josh! 
Some takeaways? There are two types of people: those who order weed based off the strain properties, and those who order off the jazzy name alone. Josh researches the weed before smoking it, and we actually learn things about our creature comforts today. Verses when Adrianna and Kelli talk about weed, we usually get as far as, ‘ooh this sounds pretty’. We love a Josh! His history with growing sacred plants, food, and hydroponics will leave ya drooling. If you need a landscaper with an eye for using SD native plants and flowers, connect with Josh through his instagram: @bodhi_sligh 
We are honestly shocked that we used both the phrase ‘spookie dookie’ and the phrase  ‘nookie cookie’ in this episode over 30 minutes apart from one another. Sounds cosmic to us! We hope you leave inspired with some of Josh’s cannabis bowl art, striving to achieve the perfect yin and yang symbol in your glass piece. 
We have a word of the day! VOMCOM, as defined by Josh, is almost self-explanatory. Tune in to listen to the proper catigorization of Romantic Comedies, the kind of bird Josh would be, and further detail on his favorite local business! 
Josh introduces us to – Lost Cause Meadery, a mead brewery local here to San Diego that he has been a fan and patron of for many years. Learn more about sacred honey wine, and this small business, by streaming our episode on Spotify, Google Podcasts, and Apple Podcasts! 
Hoot hoot! Thanks for joining us Josh, it was a pleasure having you. As always, reach out if you have any feedback, lovebeams, or requests to be one of our special guests! We love ya- IG:@karmasdpodcast

S2E3: Mission Suspicion – Uncovering the Histories of Kumeyaay Land

Have you listened to last week’s episode?

Grab your backpacks, because we are taking you to school! What’s a flume? What’s a Trumper Tantrum? Let’s putz no longer; greetings, ya lil poods! We are so excited to call you Lil Poods from here-on-out. Maybe it’s because we are scared and anxious poodles, maybe it’s because we are professional poodcasters…it’s tough to say. You have been named, and you can sigh a sweet relief that we will not call you Lil San Deezies as often as before. Ya Welcome…
We kick off each week with our local business/artist first, because we are adamant about supporting local. Not sponsored, just the real deal. Spoiler alert: these artists don’t know we are selecting them until our launch date!!!

Adrianna introduces us to an amazing artist for this week’s Business Feature: Carlos aka Primo Dirty! Carlos is a singer, songwriter, rapper, philanthropist and San Diego Native that leaves a beautiful fingerprint on this place we call home. We love our community philanthropists! Carlos is very active in our community with consistent outreach, activism, and events in support of Black Lives Matter. Vida Negra Importa! His curated events keep the collective alive and conscious with thought-provoking art and emphasis on anti-racism work. What a dream! Wait til you hear his music…

Saturday January 16th, join Carlos for Vida Negra Importa Music Protest for the people. Support your local black and brown artists in the heart of San Diego. In addition, Carlos will putting on a future (2021) community events that includes awareness of the Kumeyaay land and peoples, the very emphasis of our episode. It will include music, artists, local vendors, and a clothing/food/supply drive for those in need. Beautiful, we’ll be there.

Find Carlos a few different ways:

Primo Dirty on Spotify

We love you, Carlos!This week is a heavy one! Adrianna and Kelli are born and raised San Diegans with nary a glimpse into the history of the place we call home. In support of #kumeyaayNation, A & K look into the real and gruesome roots of San Diego. We aren’t happy! Our Catholic upbringing glorified the monuments that celebrated the genocide of indigenous, Native peoples, and it isn’t sitting well. Unearth with us, as we give a blunt history on something our direct, white community needs to know about. 
Some of the websites we referred to during our podcast:viejasbandofkumeyaay.org
Listen up, SD whiteys. Adrianna and Kelli come from Catholic schooling, so we have a few experiences that offer context to the colonization of SD:-our 4th grade ‘Mission Project’ glorifying the invasion of Mexico, Kumeyaay Land, and California-the glorification of Juan Diego, Cabrillo, and fellow colonizers of this territory-education with the impression that our relationship with the Native peoples was peaceful (using words like ‘Resolutions’ and ‘Peace Treaty’ does not negate genocide)
Creature comforts this episode? Thanks for normalizing cannabis with us! Adrianna rolls us up some Eagle Scout! Thanks, merm. In addition, we love rice cakes, cucumbers, Baba Roasted Garlic Hummus, and some Blueberry Lemonade Bubbly. Yaaaas.
We love you, lil poods! Join us on IG, we’d love to hear from you @karmsdpodcast

S2E2 – Left-Handed or Bust

Have you streamed our favorite small business this week?

Greetings, lil San Deezies! No need to sugar coat it; Adrianna hates baby corns and we aren’t sure what to do about it. That grinchy-finger sitch needs to get away from her faccia. Our takeaways from this episode? Men don’t get pulled over, CBD products belong on every surface of your bod, and no one wants your ‘tude, ya pood. Jokes keep rigamarollin off our tongue; you’re in for a real treat!
Our main course this episode is discussing all things left-handed! Both Kelli, and Adrianna’s v. Italian father, are left-handed, and we have a lot to say about it. While being lefty has some advantages (like typing on a keyboard and being a baseball legend) it also leaves a few smudges. Sit back, relax, and grab your creature comforts! 
We are so excited to talk about this week’s small business! Skyler of Toy Blossom Co. has curated an incredible company: a woman owned, raw and organic material based, crafted by hand CBD product line! Adrianna takes some time sharing some of her favorite products to rub all over her faccia, as well as her pain management remedies. Toy Blossom Co.’s 250mg Muscle Rub. Yo will have ya tossing your icy hot in the gar-baje. The 250mg CBD muscle rub was designed specifically to aid muscles and joints from swelling and inflammation. Infused with 250mg of CBD, menthol, eucalyptus and wintergreen oils, this goodgood provides a natural cooling effect for immediate relief. 

We love Skyler; thank you for such an incredible San Diego-based business! 

Email: skyler.carpenter9215@gmail.com

Website: www.toyblossomco.com

IG: @toyblossomcoMaking up only 10-12% of the population, are lefties naturally high achievers because we use a predominately different side of the brain? Or, are left-handies more capable because they are forced to adapt? In a world that ignores whether or not you are left-handed,  we can’t help but notice the high achievements of many famous lefties, including: 
Seth Rogan, Nikola Tesla, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg, Oprah, Barack Obama, Michaelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Babe Ruth, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Keanu Reeves, Gordon Ramsay, Jerry Seinfeld, Ringo Starr, Helen Keller, and Lady Gaga to name a few! 
Tune in next week for local San Diego small business features, some fantastic San Diego history, and some Great Housekeeping, ya filthy birds. Follow us on Instagram! @Karma San Diego 

Mwah,

Adrianna and Kelli

Greetings, earthlings! It’s Kelli and Adrianna here, so excited to chat about a few of our favorite things!

Yes, and it is as depressing as your facebook feed. FMYLIFE.COM from our teenage years has taken a turn, with awkward humor poking fun at sexism, ableism, racism, and actual fuck-my-life situations. No comic relief on their front; good thing you have our podcast to bring joy to your life. …’They’re welcome’…
-The pumpkin carving show on Hulu that Adrianna watched in her bathtub is called ‘Halloween Wars’ and it is a Food Network series 🙂

It is our job as privileged white women to stand proudly and bravely in a plume of smoke. You don’t have to be a cannabis consumer to be a cannabis normalizer. Get high, or get out of our way!

S1E13: Lil Hallowayne

Have you heard are sPoOoOoKy intro? Amazing, right?! Thank you to our creative masterminds, Adrianna and producer Justin @mixedbytruelove, for making our creaky door dreams a reality. We are so incredibly excited to announce that we are officially on APPLE PODCASTS! Yahoo! We have been waiting for this killer n’ thriller moment. Yay!

On this week’s episode, the queen of unpopular opinion talks about her fierce love for bombardier jackets, but a fierce hate for book jackets. New to the bombardier scene? We are too; see below for an image of this iconic ass jacket!

Thanks for the history lesson, veteran cutie from the DMV! #grandpamagnet

Ya’ll ever fiercely argued about how much you agree with one another? Somehow, you end up screaming at each other sweet nothings like, ‘EXACTLY’, ‘I KNOW’, or ‘THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I SAID’. We fiercely agree more than we realize! We are quite literally lit, dare we say thunderstruck, our excitement to be on the same page!

GREAT Housekeeping! This new segments in our podcast addresses all of our mentionables, works cited, activism and after-thoughts. Because we are talking all-things-costumes, we wanted to give a friendly reminder that education cultural appropriation should be your #1 priority this holiday season. With so many excellent costumes to honor and create, let’s kick white racist costumes to the CURB.

Teen Vogue – My Culture is Not your Costume

Let’s ditch the grass skirts, and pick up some actual grass! This week’s cannabis comfort is TIKI RAIN, a flower strain from OutCo that we thoroughly enjoyed this week.

We sure do mention a lot of random shit in this episode, so let’s get cracking! First things first, Chimpanzee on a Segway is an iconic video that you can still stream at your leisure. I am SO SORRY that this annoying song will be in the rest of your head for the REST OF YOUR LIFE. 13 years later and I am going STRONG.

Interested in being a special guest on our show? We’ll spoil you rotten! Reach out to us on @karmasdpodcast Instagram for more information. We love talking small business, and the only request we ask of our guests is to be CANNABIS positive! Does this mean you need to smoke for 82 minutes while we record? Certainly not, but we HIGHLY suggest it 🙂 You can advocate for the normalization of cannabis simply by loving and listening to us. Our goal is to make cannabis as normal as a glass of wine; instead of standing in our way, help us open the door! We respect your choices, and as our guest you’ll certainly respect ours. We love you!!
