Majestically Awkward podcast | where awkward friends talk about awkward things

In this episode, we’re talking about weird food issues. How does what was drilled into you in childhood affect how you eat today? Did your parents pass down any weird food aversions? We go on to talk about foods that we hate (spoiler alert: Tim’s are the weirdest) before moving on to segment two: Is This for Real?

This week’s topic is Reddit forums, which, again, I have absolutely no clue about. I generally think of Reddit as a deep dark filthy dungeon. This game did absolutely nothing to convince me otherwise.

Last but not least, we wrap up by getting awkward as I share a story about meeting Tim’s entire extended family for the first time.

As always, our show is not safe for kids. Our potty mouths flow freely and we talk about a lot of adult topics.

Also, if you’d like to play along with us for our Is This for Real? segment, don’t scroll down until after you listen. There are spoilers ahead!

In this week’s episode, we talk about something that we find both weird and hilarious: the way products are marketed to men or women. We know we’re different creatures, but the stereotypical ways that advertisers try to reach our demographics have sometimes hilarious results. We also played another round of Is This for Real?  This week’s theme was horror movies and got pretty freaking silly. We wrapped up with an awkward moment that involved one of Jen’s thieving children.

As always, this episode is not safe to listen to with kids around. We have potty mouths and discuss adult topics, so wait until the kids are asleep or you’re at the gym with some earbuds in.

In today’s episode, we start out with a little mom vs. non-mom discussion on what the heck to do when someone else’s kid has a public meltdown. We also touch on how to deal when someone’s kid is being a bully and talk a little bit about moms being nasty to each other. Next, we introduce a new segment called Is This for Real? where Tim goes through a list of topics—some real, some fake—and Janine and I have to decide which are real. This week’s theme is romance novels and it’s pretty hilarious. We wrap it all up with a metaphorical face punch to One Million Moms who are taking a stand against the Disney Channel and Andi Mack.

Also new this week is music from our good friend BRBRCK. We love you Berbs!

Ahhhhh! I’m so nervous and excited to announce the first ever Majestically Awkward podcast episode!

Janine and I have been friends since the fourth grade and we share the unique quality of being able to turn any situation into a really awkward one. We giggle nervously when the appropriate response is more like horror or sadness. We say the wrong things in an effort to make other people less uncomfortable. We have verbal diarrhea when we should just keep our mouths closed. We’re majestically awkward.

We’re also really huge podcast nerds (check out some of my favorite podcasts that are under thirty minutes).

One day we decided that we should start our own podcast. After months of halfhearted “planning” (read: coffee dates) we decided to just do this thing. My husband jumped on board to moderate us and keep us from going down deep dark holes of content that will make sense to no one but us. He’s also helping with the technical stuff because, to be honest, Janine and I just want to talk.

The result is an amusing exploration of awkwardness that will get better with age.
