Co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss owning a new trucker hat, being cool when no one is there to see it, whether or not photo-shopping is “real”, reconstituting life, locating a bad mouse smell, eschewing flim-flammery, embracing The Grease Collective, more on cheese, unpacking the relationship between the dinner-making ritual and drinking wine, a peaceful end to the old stove, analyzing a photo of two electricians for sexual content, Gordy’s “little houses”, the mystery of the Port-o-let, deep intelligence, a tip about dogs & this year’s “Strolling of the Heifers”, forcing cows to do things they might not want to do, speed dating for entrepreneurs, celebrating the washing away of pig manure, gut reactions to different types of photos on Facebook, declarations of royal connection, the selfie-cleavage algorithm, using Pluto Square to Venus as an opportunity for personal growth, more on the contradictions of parenting, a case of local tree stump art, a visit to the baby’s dentist, tipping service providers at weddings, bumping into Frank Keene at Will’s Store & his retirement woes, looking forward to dying in a pasture, no-shows at the school dance performance, passing off the wrong zip drive, the domino effect of one person’s lateness, the difficulty of saying something twice, sharing photographs of your occupation, why to avoid using the word “rant”, being genuinely happy vs. showing off your happiness on social media - and so much more!
