Did you know that chewing tobacco served a purpose beyond injecting cowboys with that sweet sweet nicotine? And how often DID people in the Wild West shower, anyway? Kathleen is feeling some hygiene kinship with our frontier ancestors, so she fills everyone in on the real grooming habits from the Wild West. Then, Bethany has been struggling for awhile with a very specific kind of hangup: the fear of what life will look like if she’s actually successful at her current goals. Have you struggled with this? And how do you fix it? Plus, Bethany and Kathleen are AWFUL at role-playing. You’ll be uncomfortable. You’re welcome. -------- Check out our merch! —> https://store.dftba.com/collections/an-acquired-taste-podcast  -------- Please support the companies that support us!  Talkspace - Change is always a constant, but these days, it feels like there’s something new to grapple with every day.

Both Kathleen and Bethany are firmly seated on the Struggle Bus today, but they left room for you! Hop on as they help a Tastebud figure out how to (or even if she SHOULD) flirt with her dream guy on Instagram. Did we mention that he’s a famous news anchor?

Money is tight and conversations about money are stressful (and confusing)! But as Bethany and Kathleen have both figured out, ignoring money conversations doesn’t make anything easier.

It’s Bethany’s turn to lay out all of the big and hilariously small things that are happening in her life right now. (Did anyone else trip UP the stairs this weekend?) Then, Kathleen’s been spending a lot of time on “life hack” accounts like 5 Minute Crafts, and she’s brought along a ton of ingenious ideas and shady shortcuts.

Have you ever felt like so much is happening at once, your brain can’t get anything done? Kathleen is having that kind of week, so she’s laying out all of the big (and hilariously small) things that are going on in her life right now. (For example, she’s accidentally getting an old Texas woman’s grocery receipts…) Then, Bethany digs into the mysterious story of a handful of American and Canadian diplomats who suffered brain damage after hearing strange noises in Havana, Cuba!

It’s safe to say that most people are nervous about money right now, so what happens if someone in your life asks to borrow some cash? Can you loan a friend or family member - or your partner - money without ruining the relationship? Or are there better ways to help? Bethany is tackling that touchy topic on today’s episode.

Today we're doing God's work discussing how halter tops have gone MIA, tactics for making big decisions (eeny, meeny, miny, moe), romantic ways to make COVID-19 weddings special, and the pros and cons of bringing your own lunchbox of food to a BBQ party.  Fill those coffee cups and gear up for some chit chat with your friends Bethany and Kathleen.
Ring around the rosie, kids are super creepy! After the wholesomeness of last week’s Baby-Sitters Club topic, Bethany is swinging back in the other direction with a bunch of creepy kids. Whether they’re in movies, books, TV, or pop culture, creepy children are everywhere, and Bethany tells you just why they creep us out so much. Then, Kathleen has been self-diagnosed with Dead Butt Syndrome. Do you have it, too? Is it time to panic?
