S2E7 – Great Expectations

Wassap lil poods? We are overenthusiastically ready to talk your face off about our least favorite summer required-reading book, Great Expectations. Did you have to suffer through the moldy halls of Miss Havisham’s mansion, too? Grab your lighters; this episode we are talking about heteronormative expectations in marriage, religion, and media. What a doozy!


This week’s small business feature is extra spesh; Lacee of Gigi’s Gluten Free is one of our favorite locals, and will also be our special guest next week! Lacee’s macarons are vegan and gluten free, offering a gorgeous and stress-free option for all your planty friends. Kelli talks about her first time having a wacaron melt in her mouth, and future excitement such a colorful and vibrant guest. We love you, Lacee! Find her on Instagram: @gigisglutenfree 


We love a little blunt history, and Adrianna printed out her full book report for this episode. She literally takes it back to 235 BC, when marriages were created for legitimacy and property. Wow, have we come a long way as a society!

Are you ready for us to define the hymen for you? We sure hope so; we truly do our best to give discretion and trigger warnings when it comes to the seriousness of our topic. We lighten the mood by listing some ways we have gone against the grain. Throw out our expectations of honeymoons, wedding nights, and lovers lane; it’s time to find a balance.
In the words of Age’s mama, ‘Find Your Equal’. We love you! Find us @karmasdpodcast and feel free

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.

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

Greetings, earthlings! It’s Kelli and Adrianna here, so excited to chat about a few of our favorite things! Some of this week’s highlights include an antique green dresser set with lion-head Lannister knobs, our dire need for matching cast-iron tattoos, and finding jalapenos in the bathroom. Take a shot every time Kelli says “here’s the deal’, and cheers to another great episode!

You can:-Push Streaming Daisies (mentioned E13 and E14 this season) on Prime Video! There are two seasons available. And also, DEXTER.-Is FML still a website? 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 🙂

Adrianna rolled us some Wedding Cake from Clayborne Brand’s ‘Power Pack’, and Kelli rolled some NY Sour Diesel from TruGreenMeds medical cannabis delivery in SD. Normalize Cannabis! 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! We have souls to save from needless incarceration. You think marijuana and racism aren’t related? Think again, Satan.

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.

Our small business this Saturday? @Knotsandfinds! Adrianna talks about these MAGNIFICENT witch hat earrings that she ordered for her lovely motha for her birthday this past week.

You can find Paige’s talented art on her Etsy shop- click here!
