For Avoiding The Elderly?

For Avoiding The Elderly?

March 20, 2019

Prejudice against our future selves? DAMN. The elderly are one of the largest populations of victims of implicit bias in this country. While revered in many countries, Americans tend to see the elderly as useless and slow. We have the lovely Vonia Arslanian on the show to talk about elderly biases while Therapist Tayeba is here to give us that sweet psychological perspective.

For Listening To Sexist Hip Hop?

For Listening To Sexist Hip Hop?

February 27, 2019
Rosie and Jackie like hip hop, but question why so many lyrics are derogatory towards women. Sure, not the "coolest" stance, but one to talk about nonetheless. With their knowledge being limited, they needed to chat with hip hop buff, Marcel Williams, to dissect the sexism and misogyny that lies within the community (as well as other music genres). See what Marcel has to say along with our insightful therapist, Truman Harris.

For Hating Horror Films?

For Hating Horror Films?

February 20, 2019

Rosie thinks you're a potential murderer if you like horror films and generally avoids said genre. Jackie and guest Jared Warner are BIG fans. Listen as therapist Truman Harris gets into why people like to watch scary movies and why others avoid them. It's 'scary' how our brains work, isn't it? (<-- sorry.) 

Jared's Horror Film Playlist!

Jared's disclaimer: "I want to be clear this is a list of things I think are really accessible and fun, not necessarily the GOAT horror titles. So please don't @ me for not including Suspiria or It Follows or whatever."

The Orphanage - Super Sad Ghost Children! 
The Innkeepers - Ti West's ghostly follow up to House of the Devil (Also very good, but probably not great for Rosie). Annoyingly plucky millennial goobers investigate spooky stuff during the last few days of business for a big not-scary-at-first hotel. 
The Descent - Badass lady spelunkers get lost in a cave and battle their fears and each other. Do NOT watch trailers or read anything about this if you don't already know the deal. The mid-movie turn is way better if you don't see it coming. 
Trick R' Treat - An anthology tale set around a sleepy New England town on Halloween night. Good ole' fashioned suspense with practical effects.
Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon - A mockumentary satire of slasher movies becomes one of the better entries in the genre in the last few years. 
Night Of The Living DeadEveryone should see this movie. You know how everyone who sees the Mona Lisa is like "eh, it wasn't that great?" This is the opposite of that. 
Let The Right One In - Vampire coming of age story in Sweden. It's subtitled, so you know it's good. 

What We Do In The Shadows - Not scary. Full-on comedy. Absolutely wonderful. 
The Mist - A movie about fog monsters that teaches you that religion sucks. Watch the Black & White version if you can. The ending will break you. 
Poltergeist - Some extremely scary ghosts, and a clown that's no joke; but loaded with some iconic Spielberg-style 80s goodness to wash it down with.

For Being a Hypochondriac?

For Being a Hypochondriac?

February 13, 2019

It’s no secret that Jackie and Rosie are neurotic, but they’re also both kinda hypochondriacs. The opposite of them is special guest Josh Canter, who never gets sick and doesn’t ever think about the deadly disease that may or may not be secretly spreading inside of his body and eating away at his organs. Isn’t that weird? Thankfully, our resident therapist Jen help put things into perspective, so enjoy (and don't forget to always wash your hands).
