What with all the Hollywood folks and social media influencers securing sponsorships for their life events, we obsessed about how we could get in on the action too. This is a very influential podcast!! Mentioned: A fundraiser for Catherine's daughter's skating team that's fun for NFL football fans.
It's time for another round of "All the things in our homes that are broken right now," with big fat disclaimers about how grateful we are for the roofs over our heads (it's all the junk inside the house that is the problem).
What We’re Watching: Only Murders in the Building “Hello, Darkness” and Rutherford Falls “Negotiations”
On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2, miscellaneous clues are scattering like glitter or cat hair on Only Murders in the Building. We suspect they will need a lint roller to clear everything up in the two remaining episodes. Mentioned: WhoKilledBunny.com. Next: Season 2, episode 9, "Sparring Partners."
On Rutherford Falls, Reagan manages to create a meaningful museum exhibit out of a hodge-podge of donated items, and Terry Thomas dismantles the baby lawyer that Rutherford. Inc. sends to negotiate with him. Next: Season 1, episode 7, "Rutherford, Inc."
In response to this viral video of a moment of sportsmanship from a Little League game, we talked about some of those moments of pride we've had in our kids--but tragically haven't captured on video. Can we get a little advance warning next time?
On Speed-Round Sunday, we share a mini episode from our past for your weekend listening pleasure.
Loud bark-y dogs, stealth hedgehogs, attack ants, and black pooches playing speed bump in the dark are on the job of defending our homes. Play it safe—stay away!
On Second-Listen Saturday, we share moments from past episodes for your weekend listening pleasure. This discussion is from April 2019.
Today, we're talking about an article that outlines some of the roles parents need to play to help kids thrive (it's an interview with the coauthor of a new book, The Formula: Unlocking the Secrets to raising Highly Successful Children.) We've performed them all, and have several to add to the list.
Roundabout Roundup: Blackout Coffee Co. Flavored Coffee of the Month Club and Aura Bora Sparkling Water
On this week’s Roundabout Roundup, we are here for your flavored beverage needs. Terri's shouting out the Flavored Coffee of the Month Club from Blackout Coffee Co. (so far, she's sampled white chocolate and raspberry and then black currant). If you prefer your fruity flavors over ice, Catherine recommends the unique sparkling water flavors at Aura Bora (such as basil berry, cactus rose, and chai cranberry).
Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music, which you hear on every episode
Inspired by a Follow the Herd question, we ask: Would you rather have a job you love for $75,000 a year, or a job you hate for $125,000 a year? We think it's a pretty easy answer, but at least one of our family members surprised us with their thoughts on the topic.
A few months ago, the No Stupid Questions podcast did an episode about whether it's okay to copy aspects of other people's personality (titled "Do You Mind If I Borrow Your Personality?"). So we copied that topic and discussed it today.
What We’re Watching: Only Murders in the Building “Flipping the Pieces” and Rutherford Falls “History Fair”
On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2: It was another rough week for Mabel on Only Murders in the Building as she unlocked some traumatic memories with the help of Theo Dimas (even though he only caught about a third of what she said). We ended on a cliffhanger as the city was plunged into a blackout, setting up next week's episode: season 2, episode 8, "Hello Darkness."
Rutherford Falls used "History Fair" to comment on the connection between art and artists and how past bad behavior affects current work. It was all very high-minded (even if it did mostly take place in the kitchen of a P.F. Chang's) but didn't get us anywhere on the season-long plot of the lawsuit. Next: "Negotiations (season 1, episode 6).
