When we learned that, apparently, LinkedIn causes stress and FOMO for college students, we obsessed about our own LinkedIn profiles, as well as life in the olden days when resumes were on paper and you had to talk to potential employers on the telephone.
YouTube Goes to School
A Wall Street Journal article about YouTube in the classroom got us (well, mostly Nicole) complaining about people who complain about technology in school. It's here to stay, folks, so figure out how to use it.
On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2, we wrapped up the (first?) season of As We See It with "Please Don't Leave." Everything's coming up Douglas, and Mandy manages to patch things up with Harrison after he learns about his parents' plans. If the show comes back, we'd like more roommate stories and less focus on the neurotypical drama, please.
On The Gilded Age, it's nothing but neurotypical drama in "Irresistible Change" as Tom and Marian have a secret meeting, Turner gets fired, Gladys finally gets to grow up, and George is possibly on the hook for manslaughter (plus, there's drama in Catherine's house which you may overhear). Next week, we'll watch the final two episodes of this season: "Tucked Up in Newport" and "Let the Tournament Begin."
The U.S. Senate's vote to make Daylight Saving Time permanent got us talking about the twice-yearly time change, and whether it really makes kids squirrely or is just a minor inconvenience that's quickly forgotten.
On Speed-Round Sunday, we share a mini episode from our past for your weekend listening pleasure.
From the latest in late night to our college daytime-show faves, we talk talk-show hosts and who we remember most fondly.
On Second-Listen Saturday, we share moments from past episodes for your weekend listening pleasure. This discussion is from February 2019.
There's almost nothing more delicate than trying to encourage a kid to exercise ("Are you saying I'm fat?!"), which explains why we're all a little obsessed with our children's fitness habits.
On this week’s Roundabout Roundup, Nicole's Instagram Minute is back with cat rescuer Heidi Wrangles Cats. Terri's got a non-Walker Hayes, non-Taylor Swift music recommendation, and it's HARDY. And Catherine's enjoying #grumpyjimmy DiResta on Making Fun. Also mentioned: Making It.
Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music, which you hear on every episode.
PSA: What Not to Say
It seems that some of our family members need a public service announcement about thoughts and opinions they should keep to themselves. Or perhaps find a more tactful way to express. (A mom can dream.)
Time for a Garage Sale
Inspired by a mom who mercilessly sold her kids' toys on eBay, we complain about the stuff in our homes we'd like to put a price tag on and shove out the door (although two of us are more motivated than the third).
On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2, so much betrayal. On As We See It ("Outed"), Harrison feels deceived by Mandy, Jack realizes he isn't fooling anyone into thinking he's neurotypical, and Violet finds out Van wants her to move to a residential treatment center. Next: "Please Don't Leave," the season finale.
On The Gilded Age, Agnes's butler, Bannister, commits the sin of moseying across the street and posing as the Russells' butler. As the episode title reminds him, "Heads Have Rolled for Less." Next: "Irresistible Change."
