Happy holidays! This week, we are taking a look back at some 2021 episodes we loved. Today, our favorite Roundabout Roundup picks, originally from June 25 (robot vacuum), August 13 (summer dresses), and September 24 (bone-building foods).
Nicole upgraded her robot vacuum to a combo vac/mop (that unfortunately does not kill giant scary spiders). Catherine sang the praises of a Knox Rose summer dress from Target, plus offered a side recommendation for the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. And Much to Nicole's dismay, Terri tried sardines (to strengthen her bones) and described the experience in great detail. Plus, she learned that you can indeed scramble eggs in the microwave.
Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music, which you hear on every episode. We'll be back Monday with brand-new episodes.
Happy holidays! This week, we are taking a look back at some 2021 episodes we loved. This one originally dropped on July 1.
Terri's birthday was yesterday, and Catherine's is next week. But don't rely on these idea lists from New York magazine, Etsy, and Cosmo when you're shopping.
Happy holidays! This week, we are taking a look back at some 2021 episodes we loved. This one originally dropped on May 26 (but the topic is back in the news now).
We wade into, and complain about, the debate over who, or what, is "cheugy." We like Instagram and Ugg boots but could care less about chevrons, decorative wooden signs, and Harry Potter merch (in fact one of us actively can't stand Harry Potter), so we might be safe!
Happy holidays! This week, we are taking a look back at some 2021 episodes we loved. These originally dropped in August (CODA) and November (Only Murders in the Building).
The movie CODA (on AppleTV+) is a lovely look at a the ordinary life of a teenage girl, played by Emilia Jones, whose parents and brother happen to be deaf. It's predictable, yet complex and joyful. Mentioned: Pop Culture Happy Hour's discussion of the movie.
On Only Murders in the Building, "The Boy From 6B" (season 1, episode 7) provided a ton of exposition with almost no dialogue. It was a clever, creative way to suggest two new suspects for Tim Kono's murder.
Happy holidays! This week, we are taking a look back at some 2021 episodes we loved. This one originally dropped on April 12.
It's our version of the old TLC show "A Baby Story"! Your three podcasters have three very different birth and adoption stories, each with their challenges--but all with a happy ending. Listen for our tales of hives; hyperemesis; planes, trains, and automobiles; and Johnny Depp.
On Speed-Round Sunday, we share a mini episode from our past for your weekend listening pleasure.
In this holiday week, we're focusing on happy things, like having family around us, and maybe having podcasting friends around us too.
On Second-Listen Saturday, we share moments from past episodes for your weekend listening pleasure. This discussion is from December 2019.
On this day of gift-giving in honor of a baby, we discuss whether nontraditional baby shower gifts (like the ones discussed here) are an improvement on the basic baby blanket and onesie. Plus: Bonus complaining about how it's harder than ever to buy gifts for our families.
On this week’s Roundabout Roundup: Nicole shouts out this very podcast--specifically, our archives, because we have over 1,000 episodes for you to enjoy. Terri tried out a fun promotion from the Two Blind Brothers store, and was rewarded with a soft and adorable stuffed puppy. And Catherine binged Netflix's Blown Away Christmas, the special edition of a show she recommended in this space more than two years ago (told you we have a lot of old episodes).
Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music, which you hear on every episode.
On yesterday's episode, we recounted some holiday tales of woe. Today, we take a fresh look at how we could fix some holiday fails with a do-over. Learn from us, young parents!
We review some fond memories and some not-so-fond ones and decide there are some holiday events that should stay forever in the misty, pine-scented past.
