Episode 34 – Dank Memes

In this episode we rate memes, all the memes, only the memes.  Just kidding.  We actually discuss the song, “Everybody Hates Me” by The Chainsmokers and the mental issues it addresses in society.  And then we get off into a big tangent but it’s pretty deep I think.  Yeah there’s really no great description for this episode, you’ll just have to listen and figure it out for yourself  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Episode 33 – How to be fulfilled

In an extremely philosophical episode, we discuss what makes us feel fulfilled thanks to a conversation Kody had with his friend, “Ryan.”  (You know who you are you beautiful bastard.)  If you haven’t begun your journey to find what makes you feel fulfilled, what are you waiting for?

Episode 32 – Putting yourself first

SHIT, WHAT?  WON’T THAT MAKE ME A SELFISH ASSHOLE?  Well, short answer is no, it won’t.  There is an art to being selfish and not being a dick.  You’re allowed to say no to people if they ask you to do something that makes you uncomfortable.  “People pleasers” often seem to be miserable because they put everyone else’s needs before their own, but if you don’t put your needs first, who will?  Love yourself enough to treat yourself how you want to be treated.

Episode 31 – Breathe and be content

Here are some cliché thoughts on contentment, because I’m honestly not sure what else to write here.  Life isn’t a race to the grave, take a moment to pause and be content with wherever you are.  Everybody has to start somewhere, that doesn’t make you a failure.  Sucking at something is the first step toward being kinda good at something.  I stole that last one from Adventure Time, TBH.  Ok, that’s enough of this, just listen to the episode.

Episode 30 – The roller coaster of life

Life consists of highs and lows.  That’s just something we can’t change.  In the highs, it’s easy to think that we’ll never come down, and in the lows, it’s easy to long for the highs.  Those often lead to discontent, constantly seeing other people that are at a higher point than we are and wondering why we can’t get there.  It’s important to accept the ride for what it is, and enjoy it while it lasts.  Try your best to just enjoy the journey, both highs and lows, instead of rushing towards the destination.

Episode 29 – Just be yourself, dammit

It can be incredibly difficult to even figure out who you are, but if something brings you joy, don’t be ashamed of it.  It’s hard to see everyone’s social media feeds and how “happy” they appear to be and then look at ourselves without wondering what is wrong with us.  It’s easy to look at the glitz and glam lifestyles of the rich and famous and wonder why we have wrinkles or tummy rolls or stretch marks.  Long story short, finding yourself is a long, arduous journey, but once you’ve found yourself, don’t be ashamed to be comfortable in your skin.

Episode 28 – Communication is f8cking hard

In our world of technological advancement and attempted maximum efficiency, we cut out some of the key parts of communication.  Body language and tone of voice totally lack in emails and texts.  I’M YELLING IN YOUR MIND RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THIS IS IN CAPS, even if in my mind while typing that, I wasn’t yelling.  We send a text and if we don’t get a response immediately we start feeling withdrawal-like symptoms.  Instant messaging is great for quick planning and succinct conversations, but when we attempt to use it to completely replace genuine social interaction, it can leave us feeling like something is missing.

Episode 27 – Give yourself some f*cking credit already

We are often so caught up what we have to do next to achieve our goals that we forget to feel good about all our accomplishments every day.  Even getting out of bed could be considered an accomplishment some days, but we often become so fixated on the next thing, we don’t even take the time to appreciate how amazing we are for whatever things we accomplish throughout our lives.  This is your reminder, while you’re listening to this episode take the time to think about how far you’ve come in your life and appreciate how amazing you are for getting to where you’re at now.

Episode 26 – You’re allowed to be happy

In this world of mass connection it seems so difficult to look anywhere without seeing something tragic happening in the world.  It’s easy to even feel guilty for feeling happy.  While so many others suffer, how dare we even have a little bit of happiness in our lives, right?  WRONG.  This sounds like a crappy line from a cliché self help book, but it really is OK to allow yourself to be happy.  Instead of telling yourself, “I’ll be happy when… xyz” tell yourself, “I’m happy because…” regardless of the reason you decide, even if it’s something as silly as waffles.  “I’m happy because waffles.”  So instead of worrying about fixing the world’s imperfections, start with learning how to just be happy despite imperfection.

Episode 25 – So no one told ya life was gonna be this waaaaay (ft. Toast)

*clap**clap**clap**clap**clap*

Ahem.  Anyway.  WE’RE BACK B*TCHES!  After a long streak of life getting in the way, we return with this grand ole’ episode about friendship, mostly from the viewpoint of male on male friendships because, well, that’s our perspective.  There seems to be a surplus of men that call themselves lonely in today’s world.  Maybe that’s just because previous generations never admitted it, or maybe that’s a signal of a real epidemic in our culture.  It seems like strong, male on male friendships are somewhat of a rarity anymore and well, we’re here to *try* to talk about it.  This episode features our good FRIEND (yay), Toast.
