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?
This brunch, the ladies discuss the benefits and pitfalls of being your own boss, nail beauty routines, and their very full hearts (#TexasForever). Rachael pulls off an old-timey pop-in, Sara thoroughly enjoys gentrification, and the appropriate work from home shower schedule is debated. Finally, the 90s can’t come soon enough — I don’t want to wait…for our lives to be over!
Makeup artist Ananda McAdams joins the ladies for brunch where British baking is delightful, step-sibling love gets creepy, and beauty causes pain. (Quite literally — blood was drawn.) Surprising hair, shopping carts, and neighbor drama make the gross list, while the 90s are front and center(stage) as the ladies discuss the movie—nay, the FILM—that stole their dancing hearts.
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.
The riotously funny Jessica Michelle Singleton joins the ladies for brunch to chat about her upcoming comedy album she may or may not be recording at her 10 year high school reunion. Things get real as they talk periods (not the punctuation kind; earmuffs gentlemen), the odd goods in Anchorage, and American Ninja Warrior – the only sport the ladies deem watchable. Rachael lets Sara be her Jewish mother where laundry is concerned, and 90s nostalgia calls in the form of wafting grass and dreams.
