Cave Syndrome

Cave Syndrome

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It is a Twitter legend. His balls became so powerful, his fiancée had to call off their wedding. Ironic; he could save others from the vaccine, but not himself. Anyway, you're fine. This week, Coree and Elsa are about to embark on big trips, but not before convening for one last clam-jam. Or maybe that's not the right phrase? Just for the record, I wanted to call this episode "Jammin' Our Clams" so bad, but I would have gotten in so much trouble. So here you have the much subtler option. You're welcome.

Hi. You got a second? Remember how, last week, we were talking about turning horses to glue, and cleaning hamster cages? We really couldn't have done all that without your help. And then look at you! Look at all you have done, and you have accomplished in all that time. We just want to say we never forgot you, and you're fine. Yes, because this is a self-care podcast, we do give a shout-out to Steve from Blue's Clues this week. Elsa also obsesses over catching Pokémon, while Coree just respects that Grimer is living his best life. But the center of our discussion is one simple question: How do you sleep at night? And yeah, you can take that a lot of ways.Waiting Room Music: "Where Am I" by Text Me Records Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with your town is next. Media.

The Covid Coping Hour

The Covid Coping Hour

Wake up, sleepyhead. We're almost to grandma's house. Coronavirus? Hurricane Ida? The Marvel Cinematic Universe? What are those? It's 2006 and You're Fine! This week, we take some time to vent and just get through this thing called Life in a Pandemic. Times are hard, anti-vaxxers are stupid, and we're down to smoking our roaches. On days like these, all you have are your friends and your podcast on which you record all your conversations. So enjoy the flow of discourse as we touch on dirty hamster cages, saving horses from the glue factory, and that guy who assaulted the MSNBC reporter. And for those keeping score at home, there is the triumphant return of Coree briefly singing! Please note that our audio quality on this episode is not up to our usual standards; we encountered technical difficulties during recording, and made do with what we had. We appreciate your patience while we get these issues sorted out. Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with your town is next. Media.

Brave explorer, you enter the cavern to the north. The air is damp and acrid, and the path ahead lies shrouded in darkness. Wary of dangers lurking in the dark, you roll your dice for a perception check. Fortune smiles as you roll a natural Episode 20, which means You're Fine! However, your senses are now clouded by that dank kush, for a -2 modifier to your Wisdom. This reference is not relevant to the core interests of our audience demographics! Now more than ever, people are learning how to prioritize their personal and professional lives and cut out the toxic situations that were once considered obligations. That's what's on Coree and Elsa's minds this week, as they walk through all the ways to identify jobs, relationships and environments where it's valid and necessary to know when to quit. Because no job should kill you for a paycheck, and no one should make you stay when they're not doing right by you.

How Gaming Consoles Us

How Gaming Consoles Us

Thank you for reaching our 19th episode, loyal listener! But our princess is in another castle! See what I did there?  So it turns out the Polybius legends were true: video games can have potent effects on our brain chemistry. But don't take Joe Lieberman's word for it; more often than not, it's actually good for your mental health. Gaming has been shown in studies to provide a therapeutic outlet for reducing stress and improving brain function. Even when you're playing murder games like Elsa's current fave, Hitman 2. (We're open to sponsorships, IO Interactive!)  Coree and Elsa take this opportunity to discuss the wide variety of games that help them get by, whether on mobile, PC or home consoles. Because all gaming is valid, and don't let anyone tell you different—if you agree, join us in tweeting #StopGatekeepingGames to spread the word. And along the way, Elsa introduces us to their secret lovechild, Red Jimmy-Jams.  Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with your town is next. Media.

Does Blossom Shower?

Does Blossom Shower?

As the sea levels rise, as the land spoils, as the waters pollute, as the animals thin in their numbers, as the air we breathe spreads illness and contamination, one thing remains true: You're Fine. And isn't that just peachy? Life is in flux at the moment for our hosts. Coree has gone up for an extended stay with her mother in a remote town where masks and vaccines aren't popular, and the vibe is very not chill. Elsa is coping with the devastating news of Jeopardy hiring two white hosts. These are trying times.  Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with your town is next. Media.

Bad credit? No credit? No problem! You can drive this week's episode of You're Fine off the lot today, with no down payment and no interest. That's our guarantee to you! Elsa and Coree are back to shoot the shit while life gets a little bumpy. Our hosts reminisce over being jerked around by crappy jobs and getting caught with shady arrest records, which leads to bonding over their experiences with narrowly avoiding being recruited by the Navy. Also, does anyone out there know what "ITT Tech" stands for? Nothing anymore, that's for damn sure.

Working Out the Kinks

Working Out the Kinks

2021-07-2756:58

You stand in a hallway that extends onward into darkness, its walls lined with doors. Behind you, every door has been opened. Ahead, every door remains shut. You approach the next, marked "15," and find it unlocked. You turn the knob and peer inside. Welcome to a new episode of our podcast. This week, Coree and Elsa get naughty. Our hosts waste no time in getting to their hottest topic to date: Android versus iPhone. And once the smoke clears from that raucous exchange, they get into the down and dirty business of kinkplay! If you were waiting for an episode to sit down and listen with grandma, this is it. CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains extensive, frank discussion of consentual sex and BDSM fetish play, while also acknowledging the impact of sexual abuse and trauma. If that is not a good vibe for you, it is totally cool. We'll see you next week. Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next. Media.

Welcome back to another episode of You're Fine. Please, have a seat and relax. This is a place of love and support; no one is here to attack you.  Coree and Elsa have experienced their share of hate and bigotry, both in the comedy scene and the world at large. But when combatting prejudice and hate, one must also beware when the call is coming from inside the house. So this week, we talk about combatting internalized bias and oppression! And along the way, our hosts end up kinda trading rape jokes, so here's your trigger warning for that. Our chapter markers are there for your mental wellness.

You're so brave for making it all the way to this, our thirteenth episode. It takes a lot of courage to follow us on this journey, and it is valid to feel proud of how far you've come.  No big topic this week! Instead, our hosts just catch up with each other on everything from the apocalyptic weather on the East Coast to Coree armchair-diagnosing reality show contestants with ADHD. Along the way, we'll reminisce about long-lost childhood traditions like gleaking and school bus seating hierarchies, and being scared of the bathroom. And if you're into it, Elsa opens up about their specific and very healthy kink preferences, and no, actually, you're the one who is problematic.Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next.

Lucky you, you're just in time to hear our first episode for July! This is the magical time of year when LGBTQ+ Pride turns to LGBTQ+ Wrath, Americans reward themselves with participation trophy celebrations, and people who take SSRIs need to stay extra hydrated. In this episode, Coree introduces the praxis of "Soft Destruction," a concept she conceived for her book I'm Not Ok, You're Not Ok. Not to be confused with self-destruction, these are chaotic and sometimes off-putting behaviors that people in distress can engage in without inflicting harm or danger upon themselves and others. Soft destruction is a way of harnessing ones unhealthy impulses for catharsis while remaining relatively safe.  This episode also dabbles in some mild scatological subjects, so be prepared for a few little poos. Ultimately the message to take away is simple: No one wants to see sad nipples.  Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next. Media.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to get through this latest episode of our podcast. Some podcasts seem to go on forever, and that's a mighty long time. But Coree and Elsa here to talk you down, and to be casually bigoted against the Irish. It's easy to say there's no shame in accepting and owning one's issues. But anyone who's tried to talk with a gymrat coworker or oblivious aunt has encountered the subtle humiliation of being told "everyone gets depressed," or "you don't need medications, just think happy thoughts," and other nonsense that comes with society's contempt for mental illness. That's why this week's topic is stigmas!

You've made it all the way to our tenth episode! Who would've bet we would get this far? If you didn't, you owe us $5. Pay up.This week's episode is about the delicate balance of advocacy: when to be forgiving, and when to be demanding. For example, Coree is working to forgive and accept her experience with publishing her book (which you can purchase at your local store via IndieBound or online!), while Elsa is continuing to demand the state of New York reckon with its slave trade history with their Slavers of New York project.Elsa is also introduced to a particular banger from Peter Gabriel's discography they'd somehow never heard, which is an unforgivable oversight.Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next.

Good Grief

Good Grief

2021-06-1555:00

Oh thank goodness, you're here! We were so worried you might miss out on an all new episode of You're Fine!This week, Elsa and Coree return to the stage—the Stages of Grief, to be precise. Grieving can take many forms and come out of many experiences, all of which manifest differently from person to person. Still, the basic trajectory tends to align with the famous Kübler-Ross model, as theorized by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, perhaps the original #GirlBoss of silently weeping inside a Denny's.This week has also been huge for Elsa, whose Slavers of New York project has taken off online and in the news. Tune in to hear the latest developments with their anti-racism work that's now poised to change the landscape of New York. And also stories of haunted lakes and Coree's quest to cure her ADHD!Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next. Media.

Congratulations, you've survived another week! Your reward for living this long is another new episode of You're Fine!This week, Coree reminisces about scat, Elsa learns the terrifying truth about Mad Cow Disease, and John Hinckley uses the power of song to finally get over Jodie Foster (just in time for Pride Month!). And that's all before we get to the main topic of the week: Shock!Shock comes in many forms; in this episode, we focus on Acute Stress Disorder and the very serious mental and physical effects it can inflict. We also guide you through potential options for treatment, and what you can do for a friend or loved one who has ASD.Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next.

The results from Coree's ADHD tests are back, and the doctors say there's only prescription: do more podcasting!They also prescribed her Adderall! So buckle in because this episode is going to ride that amphetamine coaster till the wheels fall off. You will hear Coree experience the early effects of her new drug, which includes a lot of highs and some very heavy emotional valleys. Consider this a trigger warning.You'll also hear our hosts cover a wide array of topics, from Elsa's recent hospitalization, to embezzling funds, to butt pics, to Pokemon, to ear hygiene, to watching Brokeback Mountain for the first time.

This week's regular episode has been postponed, as our hosts have each found themselves separated by tragic circumstances. Instead, we offer a brief glimpse into where they're at, emotionally and physically, and how they're meeting each new day.If you've been following our show, you may know that a number of emotionally taxing family issues have afflicted Coree in recent weeks, while Elsa has wrestled with health issues stemming from their hit-and-run injury.  Those came to a head this past week, leaving us without the time or resources to record an episode. Still, we want to let you know how they're doing. We'll be back next week with a new episode, right on track.And no matter what you're going through, we hope you're keeping your spirits high, and you never stop trying.Episode music: "Slow Times Over Here" by Midnight NorthOur show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next.

Hit us up on Twitter and let us know.Coree and Elsa also take on Hustle Culture, and its kung-fu grip on our sense of self worth. Do you need to be "booked and busy?"
