This February brunch Sara and Rachael listen to Lena Dunham’s new podcast, discuss their favorite First Ladies, and the joys of senioritis. There’s no bread and cheese like New York bread and cheese, Sara gets into cartoons, and Rachael is won over by arranged marriages. Cat calls (sarcastic or not) are deemed gross, while 90s nostalgia is all about making mixtapes from the radio (complete with the DJ in between songs).
Yup – we’re giving away a set of Golden Girls prayer candles! You can check out the goods at Vegas Giblet on Etsy!

The ladies get deep this brunch when they chat internet life vs. real life, the joys of the brunch & nap lifestyle, and their top 10 TV shows of all time. Feral cats and garlic bread aftermath make the Gross List, while the Fresh Prince of Bel Air has the ladies awkwardly rapping for the first and certainly last time on the podcast. (If Uncle Phil were here, this is when he’d throw us out the front door Jazz-style.)
We have a new facebook group called The Shepod AOL Chatroom – A place for ALL 90s-loving aspiring Golden Girls (and boys) to share their own Watching/Eating/Wearing, weekly Gross List, and anything else your prosecco-soaked hearts desire. All are welcome, feel free to add the Sophias and Blanches in your life! New members encouraged to introduce themselves by sharing their original AIM screennames.
Shepod bestie Elizabeth Delhagen joins the ladies for a brunch of wine and tiramisu! Sara fancies herself a hoop-skirted noblewoman, Rachael breaks down the merits of boxed wine, and Elizabeth is horrified by the ladies’ Cheesecake Factory love. Valentine’s Day, angry pee, and dog farts make the Gross List, while shorteralls top the list of 90s trends we should stop trying to make happen. IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, GRETCHEN.
Adorable Shepod mom Susan King joins the ladies to celebrate their 40th episode! Over prosecco and coffee, the ladies declare that cheese must be salty, disagree on Transparent, and question the basic bitch-ness of their photos. Achey breaky backs, dog butts, and armrest invaders are deemed gross, while the 90s welcomes us all to a night at the Roxbury. What is love?
Ring in 2016 with the ladies in this new year’s brunch! Star Wars reignites, Serial is for quitters, and The Simpsons are (still) kind of a big deal. Sara shame-orders too much takeout, while Rachael hates on generationally inappropriate phone calls. Finally, 90s nostalgia takes the ladies back as Luke Perry somehow makes his way into The Cutting Edge. Toe Pick!
Actress Mary-Alice Farina joins the ladies to discuss never-ending slippers, Coach Taylor, and mountain sweaters. Malibu delicacies and sunsets are deemed swoon-worthy, Sara’s adverse physical reaction to her gross list fills Rachael with glee, and try as they may to avoid it, Towie garners a mention (or eight).
Comedian Kelsey Cook Joins the ladies to break down drunken foods, botox, and Straight Outta Compton. Flossing, airports, and bathroom loitering illicit gross reactions, while the 90s reign supreme in the form of butterflies, YM, and plumeria.
Breakfast tostadas and Korean barbecue are on the menu in this food-focused brunch. The ladies break down their conflict with diamonds, question the existence of “Heart” in Captain Planet, and decide that birthstone colors are negotiable. Victoria’s Secret is debated (to V or not to V, that is the question), while urgent fearces and poor unsubscribe etiquette make the gross list. Finally, sun-made hair gives 90s nostalgia a whole new hue.
Actress and blogger Lynn Chen joins the ladies in a great debate: how old is too old to couch crash? Rachael finds accidental love with boozy slushies and a shameful obsession with the latest season of The Bachelorette. Sara finds comfort in pajamas that make her feel like a New Girl, but can’t get on board with Coach Taylor’s latest project. The gross list features butt shots (not the fun kind), those who are all talk, and those opt out of TJ’s bagging (seriously, what’s wrong with you). And Lynn wins at 90s nostalgia with a very special TGIF story. Cut it out!
At their first July brunch, Rachael shares her treat trickery and Sara finds that the jar of applesauce is indeed half full. Both ladies agree that oversize designer logos and thongs should remain in the past, Sara discusses her appreciation of silicone, and Rachael has questionable shame over her new Toms. Finally, a deal is struck: one season of Firefly for one season of Battlestar Galactica. Which is better? No matter which show emerges victorious, nothing will bring back their beloved Delia’s (RIP).
