Episode 50: Get Off My Lawn

 

Welcome to our golden anniversary Talkers! Pls email us for the address you can send us all the gold jewelry you got us. We knew you wouldn’t forget.

This week we can’t seem to stop talking about facebook. They are reaching out from the computer screens and looking to take over your TV screens. Jess is working on pilots for Jess and Mishka in the Morning. The first talk show co-hosted by a Pomeranian. Rob is reserving judgment, and Sarah already can’t figure out how to use the remote.

This week in Whoopie, a quick shout out to Whoopi Goldberg being 100 percent chiller than everyone else and sticking up for Tiffany Trump when NYFW fashion editors started bullying her on twitter.

Next we have an inappropriately long conversation about how much we love robes. #Robeup.

If you need it, Romeo and Juliet has been re-written as a text message string.

Since it’s such a slow week politically, and Texas lawmakers apparently have nothing better to do, they are trying to outlaw use of the Chilean flag emoji as the Texas Flag Emoji (Which doesn’t exist). Known rival of the podcast, and governing body on all things emoji, the unicode consortium, will surely be upset when they find out someone else is trying to dictate emoji law.

Episode 48: I feel fine. fine.

Hey Talkers,

Most importantly, Will & Grace has been picked up for a 10 episode revival. Also Donald Trump was sworn in as president of the United States of America and the end is nigh. Sad.

Sarah weighs in on a U.S. News & World Report panel ranking the Whole30 as the worst diet out of a list of 38 diet plan. This is of course, completely insane. The Whole30, while not for everyone, is still a diet that recommends real, whole foods, and advocates that participants learn how to read food labels. A skill they will take with them long after the 30 days is over. But whatever U.S. News & World Report panel, tell people to chug Slimfast, the 2nd ingredient of which is Sugar, followed by Rancid Canola Oil, Fructose, Calcium Caseinate, Gum Arabic, Cellulose Gel, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Mono and Diglycerides…. Bottoms up.

Next, we talk about how hard working American, Randall Prince, found proof that Hillary Clinton stole the election by stuffing ballot boxes with ballots pre-checked with her name. If fucking only, Randy.

Of course, this never happened, Randall Prince is a fake person, and Hillary Clinton lost the election. This was just a big bullshit story that some guy wrote on the internet and made thousands of dollars off of. So now President Trump is in office, and fake news and alternative facts are just a reality of modern journalism. *Chugs Wine* Congratulations America.

Episode 46 – The Holidaycast

Why Are You Talking Podcast Episode 46 graphic

Hello, talkers!

Tis the season to dismantle all the things you love about the holidays. That’s the reason for the season, right? Ok, maybe not.

To kick things off, we have breaking news about the latest iOS update. There are serious feelings about the new emojis.

Mainly, this week we are talking about our favorite holiday classics, as well as the marathon of Hallmark movies that Jess has been binging on lately. Did she happen upon some winners? You’ll have to listen and find out. **SPOILER ALERT** We talk about some of the many things wrong with the Christmas move everyone loves (or loves to hate), Love Actually. Go ahead and try to dispute us. [8:35]

We wrap up with each of our lists of favorite holiday songs. Did any of yours make one of our lists? Tell us in the comments below! [27:50]

Can we ask for your help for a sec? Would you take five minutes and rate us on iTunes? It helps others find us, and lets us know what you think. We’d love you forever.

P.S. Make sure to check out our other projects!

Episode 44 – The UnemploymentCast

Why are you talking podcast header

So, Rob isn’t the only one who lost his job. Add Jess to that list. We are now a 66.66% unemployed podcast. But we’re not letting it get us down. Instead, we’re talking about the glorious return of Gilmore Girls. Sarah has very serious opinions, and she wants you to reach out to her to discuss them. Seriously, email her at sarah@whyareyoutalkingpodcast.com and tell her what you thought. Please, because Rob and Jess have nada.

Now, we have a serious question for you: have we reached peak emoji usage? Have brands ruined it for everyone? And when you get an email with an emoji in the subject line, do you care? These are very important questions we need answers to. Tell us in the comments!

Finally, rather than wallow in our sorrows, we’re talking about our side hustles. Want to take a look? Check ’em out.

Jess is kicking off her new box service, Shinebox.
Sarah will help you live a better life with her Tribe Wellness Counseling practice.
Rob blogs about social media, technology, and other nerdy things at Robzie.com.

Let us know what you think of the topics we discuss in this week’s episode, or any of our above side hustles.

This is Not Episode 43

Hey Talkers,

You all know that we lost giants this week. In music, in journalism, and in a way, in the white house. It was a heartbreaking week for so many people, for so many reason. We decided to skip recording an episode that would have undoubtedly been 45 minutes of us ugly crying into a glass of Bourbon and instead spent some healing time together with friends. We hope you are doing the same. Take care of yourselves and each other lovelies. We will be back next week.

xoxo
