New podcast episode!
I have had to manually re-follow the podcast Films to Be Buried With about 15 times. That app is kookoo!
When Busy talked about how she wants to be with someone who adores her, I felt that. That has been my goal, still searching.... I hope she finds it!
Caissie that’s so weird that your Apple podcast doesn’t update yours right away. Mine works great! The best part is when a new episode of the pod drops and I see it when it shows up in the queue. It makes me so excited. 💜
I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but I wanted to share that I made a silly little podcast bingo card the other day with some of the recurring moments we all know and love. So feel free to save a copy and play along the next time you listen to an episode! I uploaded it to a Google photo album here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/vP77oxGURQdZeN1T9
Busy reposted someone's else's IG story drawing the comparison's to this weeks BPIDHB pod and a recent Drama Queens podcast ep but I wanted to take the convo here, too.
Has anyone else listened to last weeks Drama Queens? DQ is One Tree Hill rewatch podcast. Last week's conversation really resonated with me all and it's been on my mind a LOT since i listened. They were covering the season 4 finale but talked very little about it, and more about how they were treated by the men on their set, namely their boss whose actions are very public. They talked about their creep of a former boss (to put it lightly) spreading awful things about them to their future employers/cast/crews, etc.. It's worth a listen but CW: there is reference directly and indirectly to sexual assault, harassment, and a lot of everything that "Me Too" entailed.
Then Busy's story on the pod today about showing up to her next job with comments that likely surfaced as a result of her prior one - got me thinking all over again.
Side note, but related, If two podcasts worlds collide, it should be those two! I'd love to hear a conversation with Busy, Caissie, Sophia, Hilarie and Joy!
I loved this ep - real talk about the power of friendship. But I have to confess I have to go down a google rabbithole about Charles Kuralt 😂😂✅
Ok I’m in the middle of the pod but must stop lol.
Busy! I am with you! Blank page all the way!!!!
I realized this same thing around Xmas time and it is LIFE CHANGING. Like quit my job, come out to my family and friends and book a trip to Europe for a month kind of life changing.
As always thank you for sharing these conversations and both of your experiences. The last part of your conversation today about boundaries at work resonated *so much* - especially because it made me realize how I tried to ask for boundaries at my first job and was slapped down. It was a rough experience. When I was 21 and right out of college, I got my first real job - assistant to an important curator, earning $10/hour, no benefits (yikes!) I was really good at the job but I was also overwhelmed. The expectations were high. The curator was terse and demanded that I understand her needs implicitly. When I wrote a note asking for direction and clearer communication I was yelled at and told that I had been insulting and rude. That I should know my place. I felt humiliated. And it really set the stage for how I behaved in the workplace. I was so young. I needed mentoring. I should have felt agency -along with respect for my boss. Instead she used power and position to belittle me and I cowered from then on. Your conversation today took me all the way back to that time and made me feel such sympathy and kindness towards the young kid I was. I wish I could go back and help little me realize that I should have said “you can’t speak to me in that way, you can’t demand so much and give so little.” The 90s were tough on us young women!!!
Anyway thanks as always Caissie and Busy.
Guys, can I just say - don’t get me wrong, I fucking love Busy so much, in all of the ways. With that said, I also need to say that Caissie is equally as important to me in this podcast. I freaking love you, Caissie, and I truly get all of the feels from you. I wish I knew you IRL. I love your relationship with your sweet, sweet husband, and your boys. As a mom of 2 older boys as well (20yo twins), I LOVE hearing you talk about your guys. You are so relatable and I truly appreciate every bit of advice you give. Most of my friends have kids much younger than me, and I always get an “aha! She gets it!” Moment when you speak of them. I genuinely appreciate you. Loved seeing you at the NJ show recently. Thanks for all you do for us group of weirdos. I’m here for it. ❤️💜
A friend that can gently OFFER a reframe for you is a GIFT. It was a great reminder. It's an ongoing topic of conversation with my very negative ten year old. Hard to flip that script... <strike>some</strike>... most of the time? (bwahahhaha old html will never leave my brain!)
Overcast updated immediately! I’ve already listened twice (cuz I fell asleep during the podcast before it and missed like 2 thirds. And then missed the other third, so it’s a process. I work overnights, shit’s weird
I just finished listening, and I wanted to thank Busy for sharing about her thyroid nodules. We found several nodules on my 12 year old’s thyroid last fall and had them biopsied. They were benign and we just had her 6 month follow up on Monday and they hadn’t grown in size, but there is one new one. We are grateful that it’s not an urgent issue but it is stressful to be told that we just have to wait and see what happens. I am super interested in the treatment Busy mentioned so I’ll be looking into that.
PS. Fuck pervy old men. Birdie did the right thing, but she shouldn’t have had to. Ugggg
Busy, I but the bullet and had a tummy tuck in December. Best decision EVER! Recovery was rough....but if you want it, just GO FOR IT!
Oooh my apple podcast updated super quickly this time. I’m still like 4 podcasts behind... but you know. I’m getting there. Especially since I have discovered I can run to them!
