E81 - After catching up with how our summer quarantine single-lives vs mom-lives are going, we jump into an insightful conversation with Jennifer Campbell Martin, a 20-year middle school teacher in Long Beach, California. We get an educator’s point of view of what going back to school might look like, and are interested to hear about what the plans might be. Virtual learning vs on-campus? Will kids wear masks? How will schools do class time and rotations? Where will they eat lunch? Are teachers as anxious as parents? There are so many factors to consider, so we break it all down bit by bit. This is a fun, lighthearted but poignant conversation that will get all the gears moving as we get closer to back-to-school.

Raskob Ranch

Raskob Ranch


E78 - We remember chunks of early childhood stories, but is it all lore based on old photos? Who was this woman Dolores Raskob we used to call our godmother? How was she connected to the Empire State Building construction? Rockefellers? DuPonts? Astors? FDR? Is it true Joelle saved Julianne’s life? Why was Weens always crying in pictures? We go right to the horse’s mouth and call on our mom to clarify! And being sisters, we can’t help but battle to find out who was the favorite daughter. Listen, learn, and laugh with us...or at us!Promo: Assorted Goods podcastSong Credit: "Diamonds Don't Shine" by Julianne Eggold. Slide guitar Gabe Feenberg
E77 – Well, Joelle’s well broke and we hear about the stress as she watches her property’s plants slowly die, a special kind of torture for a gardener! And Julianne catches us up on her frustrating hair moment and hasty Corona cut.  We segue into talking about HAIR during quarantine and the special problems we are all facing – roots, greys, colors and cuts! We interview our good friend Carla Reynolds, a local hairdresser with some thoughts, tips, and tricks during this do-it-yourself time. Should we use boxed color? Try new colors while at home? How can we deal with these roots growing out? How are hairdressers feeling about going back to work? Trimming  kids’ hair? After some more awful 90’s references (apparently we’re stuck), we pivot again into what is fondly called Culture Corner. We have two fun clips with Julianne’s friends: Matthew Stevens reads us a very hip poem of his, and Chris Osmundson gives us a book recommendation complete with character voices! Hear the grand finale song as Julianne sings us out with “The Magic Store” that you may remember from The Muppet Movie.Thank you all for listening and we hope you will consider supporting Meals on Wheels, providing food and well-checks for seniors in need.Promo: I Shake My HeadSpecial thanks to: Unpredictably Us podcast and patron Dana!Song Credit: “The Magic Store” cover by Julianne Eggold and Joelle Reluctant | Instagram | Twitter | Facebook | YouTube | Patreon VIP

We hear his path getting discovered by HGTV and DIY Network, ultimately hosting gardening and landscaping shows The Dirt On…, Blog Cabin, Turf War, and his signature Yard Crashers which inspired multiple spin offs! We get some inside scoop about the background of his career, of how the show worked behind the scenes, his public work as a celebrity spokesperson, and owning his own thriving landscaping business. Ahmad answers some listener gardening questions about grubs, succulents, eucalyptus, tight jeans!, and tells us about the quirky eco-friendly way he has been bathing lately!

E74 – We celebrate Mouse and mom’s birthday by going to the Hollywood hills to visit a good witch, Patti Negri, author and psychic medium to the stars…and to us! Patti shares her personal journey of how she learned to embrace her gifts of communicating with the dead from a very early age. She reveals some spiritual encounters on tv shows clearing ghosts from famous houses, channeling celebrities like Michael Jackson, and conjuring serial killers like that of the Black Dahlia. Then we get down and dirty with our own personal tarot readings and contacting our dead loved ones. Mouse gets a special bathtub spell to connect to her inner child, Weens discovers that her new love is waiting in a corner, and mom talks to her mother who reveals something very personal and vulnerable. Patti facilitates some very spooky-cool and extremely insightful connections to ourselves and to our loved ones who have passed on. And at the end of the episode Mouse gets unsettling news regarding our dead father and the lies that were told. Where will we go from here?  Patti gives some great tips on how to tap into your own psychic abilities, how to deal with imbalance and stress, and how to work toward happiness, all outlined in her book Old World Magick for the Modern World.

Costa Corona Birthday

Costa Corona Birthday


E73 – Costa Rica during the coronavirus outbreak? Weens finally safely returned home and talks all about her gorgeous but dicey girls trip. Even though there is a lot of laughing in this episode, we get into our feelings as we talk about how everything is going in our two very different lives. Weens is happy doing a solo quarantine in artistic solitude, while Mouse is juggling a full family household and attempting homeschooling with lots of unknowns. There are fun stories, dumb jokes, some tears, and a few nice takeaways. And being Mouse's and mom's birthday, Weens writes a special custom song to celebrate this weird year! Joelle's pals also add some nice sentiments, so listen until the end!

Well Good Morning!

Well Good Morning!


E67 – Hop on the 2020 sister train and follow our thoughts as we talk through Mouse’s suburban optimism and Weens’ city pessimism, while discussing traffic, Mr. Rogers, true crime, and the homeless. Our eyes were opened by Julianne’s interview with a Los Angeles Police Department officer, who had a lot of information and thoughtful perspectives on the homeless problem in LA and the day to day issues that the LAPD deals with. Then we have some parenting discussions about Mouse’s boys about male role models, teasing and gender jokes, internet safety, and sexual health. Fun fact: did you know Joelle was a sex educator in college and was on the news talking about HPV? Now, don’t be fooled by the heavy topics. This episode is laden with ridiculousness and funny stories. Look out for brisk red sweaters, bearded ice skaters, drunk tarot card readers, caped rollerskaters in g-strings, condom banana totems, and a guy named Rare.

New Years Resolutions

New Years Resolutions


E66 – Most people want to start the upcoming year fresh with a clean slate, a healthier mindset, and with new goals to reach. But more often than not, people's new year's resolutions fail. Why and what are we doing wrong? What can we do differently to finally hit our goals this year? We are no experts, so we decided to do some research after setting up our traveling recording studio in Idaho. Patent lawyer David, also Mouse's husband, came in to talk to us about his thoughts on New Year's resolutions and we ended up connecting the dots between his goal-setting nature and how he built his successful intellectual property law firm ten years ago.  Then we snagged a drive-by interview with our brother Chad, a program manager at Microsoft, to hear how business theories can be applied in the new year. And our mom even joins the chat! We agree on most points, but argue over a couple of them as we read off a thorough list on how to set and keep a New Year's Resolution. Hear about our own goals and what we think will work for us. Let us know what yours are too!Song credit: "Chocolate Eyes" (acoustic) Written by Julianne Eggold, performed by Dan MahonySponsor: Tickettyboo Hot ChocolateContact, Support & Join Mouse and Weens:Website | Email | VIP Patreon | Gear | Instagram | Facebook Public | Facebook Behind the Scenes
E65 – It’s Christmas Eve and it’s our two-year anniversary, so we go back to where it all began in our mom’s basement in Idaho! She even pops in for a bit – a throwback to episode 1 – and we recount childhood holiday stories, getting nostalgic about the elf on the shelf and dad dressed as santa. So much fun but so many lies! We catch up and compare our LA and San Diego parties. And we tell our latest crazy family story about going snowmobiling in West Yellowstone, where we crashed and got stuck in the snow for hours. Did we survive? Or did we freeze to death, only to thaw out and be discovered in the Springtime like so many other victims? You’ll have to listen to find out!Mentioned in this episode:* Jim Eggold at our uncle and mentalist!* The Coffee Shop Trio (Matt Politano keyboard, Matt Cory bass, and Steve Ferrone drums)* Holiday card love from Lady Pod Squad podcasts: Cutscenes and Cupcakes, Shelf Love Podcast, Spoop Hour, The Phoenix Nest, Boobies & Noobies, The Geekly, Brook Reading, NRI WomanBe a member on Patreon to receive special content and prizes!Comments on this episode?

Sex and Love

Sex and Love


E64 – Let's talk about sex. Addicted to love. We put ourselves in the hot seat and discuss role playing in relationships, hear from a couple girlfriends about their fantasies, and talk about spicing up a marriage. When it comes to single life, why do some women pick dirt bag guys? Learn about sex and love addiction and its connection to parenting. The little sister teaches the big sister a lot about attachment theory in this one, amidst lots of laughter and anatomy jokes, especially in our closing song. We just can't help ourselves. We get real with our love lives and it gets real uncomfortable!Song credit: “Synonyms of Sex” by Julianne Eggold and Joelle KohnPromo: #NoOffense ShowBe a member on Patreon to receive special content and prizes!Comments on this episode?

E63 – Weens hosts Mouse and family for a day at her work at Warner Brothers Studios to tour behind the scenes and meet Nathan Fillion! We give the play by play of everything from tv show sets we walked around on, to the prop rooms, to the costume warehouse, to the scene we watched get shot, to the conversation we had with the star of The Rookie.  Hear Joelle’s review of the family friendly Magic Castle Hotel, the adventures on Hollywood Boulevard, and some of the secret sights on the backlot. We discuss the special effect props the kids encountered on location and the demystification of the big screen. Weens interviews co-worker Bruce Sharpp and we learn how this electrical rigging gaffer balances family life and showbiz.

E62 – Mouse recaps her girls’ trip wine tasting in Mexico with friends but feels guilty being gone three weekends in a row. Meet Joelle’s friends and find out if her husband is really okay with all this time away or resentful? Are the kids feeling abandoned thinking mom is selfish? How do you take female friends from acquaintances to besties and how do you keep those friendships going over the years? We go over reasons why we need our mom’s nights out and the science behind having girlfriends. We will post study references in our Show Notes. Hear the statistics on how much moms really work and how much free time they have to themselves. No wonder we need our time away! Then we read a controversial article about why some mothers don’t want girl time. Is it healthier to focus more on your husband or is it codependency? Joelle feels judged by this “blessed” woman who shoulds her, but maybe it’s insecurity and she needs to hear it? Weens does a great job giving advice as a non-mom and talks kids’ independence, giving up some control, and raises the future question of how much you should talk dirty in front of your kids. This is a good one for all of us striving to get balance with parenting anxiety. Please take a listen and rate/review on Apple Podcasts to let us know what you think!
