Title: S1E2 – FADBODS
Short Desc: In this episode, we discuss the harms and diservice that FADBODS have on our society. These confines founded in toxic masculinity and societal sexpectations have got-to-go honey!
Long Desc: Adrianna and Kelli discuss their experiences with body commentary from men, and how the false narrative of ‘what it means to be sexy’ is a humanitarian, political, racial and economical issue in our culture that negatively affects everyone. 
Listening back to the episode, I have further commentary on race and our conversation: when white hetero men associate voluptuous body types with race, Kelli identifies by saying ‘that’s racist’. It must be noted that Adrianna and Kelli cannot experience racism because WE ARE WHITE WOMEN, and my comment was meant to identify the racist perspective deeply intertwined with sexual harassment and ‘societal pressures’. I apologize for not further explaining my comment and believe it needed further exploration. My identification of racism must seen in conjunction of FADBODS, and the harms of all things ‘exotic’. Let’s be clear, telling a white woman that she cannot be curvy because she is white is a harmful racist perspective that affects non-white people and their bodies, not Adrianna. It is, however, body shaming to all parties involved and harmful anti-feminist language that denies Adrianna’s existence as a sexy beast. So really, it’s sexist aaaand racist, and a great example of how entangled the two are with one another. My comment felt insensitive, so I’m calling myself out. Thanks for reading and we have an open invitation for feedback and conversation!! That’s really what our podcast is all about
Title: S1E3 – The Customer Isn’t Always Right
Short Desc: Customer Service makes the world go ’round, so why not cut us some slack? K n’ A process the history of restaurant culture, experiences working retail, server woes and, well, manicotti.
Long Description: Adrianna and Kelli make a pressing argument as to why all humans of this earth should work in customer service for a well-rounded experience in life. Dark humor and plumes of smoke help us process the best and worst working experiences we had when we were younger, alongside our classic commentary. Become introduced with BLUNT HISTORY, a bit we integrate when we storykeller our way through facts. Hint: it’s worse than drunk history, but we’re working on it. We love feedback!

Title: S1E4 – Meet Kendra!

Every fourth episode, we have a very special guest! Meet Kendra, our first podcast interviewee. Kendra is a longtime friend, sister and bread wizard at Olive Baking Company in Mission Beach. Meet our favorite Jane of all Trades!!
Meet Kendra! In this episode, we discuss some of our favorite Pot Pie eateries in San Diego, kissing parents on the lips, and cafe life. Kendra is incredibly involved in the Mission Beach community, all things cats, and supports the normalization of cannabis. She’s pure magic, and we think you’ll love her BLUNT HISTORY: how puffins came to be. In addition to the breeding of toucans, we also learn a bit about the meaning of Karma as we get ready to dive deeper in our community work. Takeaways? Grab a creature comfort, support Olive Baking Company in Mission Beach.

We are so excited to talk about two of our favorite tattoo artists here in San Diego, and what sets them apart from the rest. Matching tattoos, parking lot safety, and tons of snacks, we schmooze and story swap. All hail the giggle jiggle that comes with getting tattooed!

Adrianna talks about her experience as an ambitious creative, stifled by the expectations of a college-preparatory high school and the social stigma that surrounds it.

S1E8 – Meet Intern Madi!

Every fourth episode, we feature a very special guest. Meet Madi, our great friend and roommate who celebrates life as a cannabis advocate, animal lover, and tattooed vixen. We love talking with Madi; her laugh is contagious, she keeps it real, and her stories leave us loving NorCal more than we ever thought we could #annoyingsandiegans. Cheers to our favorite queer witch, we love you McMadi!
Description: You know when you look in your mom’s cupboard and find your french maid garter belt from Freshman year of community college? No?

Sit back, grab your creature comforts, and meet our dearest friend Madi while we ask her some of our favorite questions:
How did we meet?
If you were a bird, what bird would you be?
What is your favorite tattoo?
We talk so much, we split this episode in two!

S1E9 – Secondhand: Dead or AliveEeEe

On this week’s episode, Adrianna and Kelli had a blast discussing some of their favorite memories:

What is your favorite item that you have found thrifting/secondhand shopping? (hint, we fucking love chairs)

What is your favorite thrifting childhood memory? (Yes, Adrianna was trying on shoes in Goodwill and someone walked away with her own zapatos! And did not want to give them back to her)

You know you had a good time in Goodwill when you leave barefoot and confused!

S1E10 – Keeping Up with the Christians

YOO-HOO, hello, hi there! YEEZUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!

In this episode, Kelli and Adrianna tell the tall tale of volunteering at church-affiliated thrift stores. Taking themselves out of their comfort zone, K n’ A will volunteer wherever they’ll have our wild asses. We also talk about the lack of inclusivity that comes with the fashion industry. Adrianna and Kelli have visions of running a degendered secondhand store, meaning that the store will not be separated by a men’s and women’s section. Why assign gender to a piece of fabric? Instead of ‘women’s flannels’, we want you to think ‘button-down section’. We doubt this reorganization will be inconvenient for any of our customers, and if it is, shop somewhere else dog!

Need cackling hens of positivity to sort your donations? Good thing we’re here! It’s time to stop, drop and pray with this two-part episode.

S1E11 – Not Today, Satan

Kelli brings a ton of excitement to the episode because 11 is her very favorite number! Kicking off the podcast with memories, sparks and snacks, Adrianna and Kelli take a few trips down memory lane. With undertones of S1E7: Ya Big Creep, take a peek into a day in the life.

We always promote a small business each episode, and for this feature we are so jazzed to talk about Wicky Woman Candles! Not only did Adrianna purchase a seasonal candle from WWC, but she can also refill it at any time, taking this sustainable and eco-friendly company a hella must!

S1E12- Meet Jake!

Adrianna finally admits that she invites all of our crazy asses over so she has someone to commandeer large furniture with. We are onto you, Age! We kick off this episode with an alley find headboard and some Kelli-pronounced knee-yo-key. Thank you Adrianna for cooking up some gnocchi for us for this evening podcast 🙂
