Beth & Meg & Our Top 10 Weepie Movies Pt.1

It’s Oscars week and we discuss the only films Hollywood deems worthy of the big prize – tearjerkers. Yes, we list off the movies that have reduced us to a blubbering mess but not before talking the going-ons on The Satellite of Love, which celebrities we would most like to slap, and why Harrison Ford is heading for an intervention. Also, the phenomenon of men and sports, Icelandic pizza toppings, and requiring an interpreter whilst visiting Boston. #playingforpapes #DJmyfuneral #MonteCristoDay #youdownwithMMC #Idipyoudapwedip #itsacobblah

Beth & Meg & Love Stories

It’s the season of love and we are here to discuss its many facets in this week’s episode. We chat about how every night is Valentines in our homes, how Mr. Darcy had one too many leg days, and how we are one greasy pair of sweat pants away from packing up and moving to Grey Gardens. Also, why we need a restraining order against Christie Brinkley, the out-of-whack economics of gourmet pizza, and our newest crush and favorite gourmand- Tim P.  #thinkofEngland #freedomtowers  #getGuttenberged #guaclikeaman

Beth & Meg & Groundhog Day

Well, Punxsutawney Phil stuck his head out of his hole and then quickly went back in to avoid the angry mobs, but you’ve come to the right place for a little respite from the cold. Yes, we talk the day and the movie “Groundhog Day”, including the theory of how Ned Ryerson  can be used to teach particle physics. Also, typecasting Tara Reid, Tostitos bags for teetotalers, and our girl crush on Marion Cotillard. #DisneyOnIce #ImNotTHEGod #DeportHer #WinonaForever #GymProofYourMarriage #GroundhogDay

Beth & Meg & Derek & Rogue One Pt. 1

SPOILER ALERT!!! It’s been a year since we last discussed a Star Wars movie and it’s time for Rogue One to get its own discussion on our show. Little Brother Derek joins us as we discuss this new genre of film he dubs an “InBetweenQual” but not before getting into an idea to marry HGTV with the Hunger Games, the tyranny of science fair projects, and how creepy 90’s sitcoms really were. #incredulity #cardboardcuts #I’mJoey #HotRod #RogueOne

Beth & Meg & Would You Rather 2

Listen as we dig Meg out of the snow with a rousing game of “Would You Rather”, but not before we talk a certain outgoing president, how we would impress Marshawn Lynch, and why Richard Branson might want to bone up on note taking in case he ever runs into us. Also, what we expect for a $20 date, how we are JUST like Taylor Swift, and creepy pillowcases. #notthatinnocent #nojudgement #meandmarshawn #softcam #peakedatfour #meganstheme

Beth & Meg & The Best of 2016

Best of 2016? What are they thinking?!?! Yes, yes, we know. It was tough, folks, but we managed to find some stories which might give you less of a “What was up with that crap-fest?” feeling we all seem to have about 2016. Find yourself thinking, “I guess it wasn’t all that bad” as you hear about reasons to take up skiing, interesting candle scents, and Bethany’s dream job. Also, hear about Megan’s demands upon the moment of her death, Bethany’s run-in with Uncle Rico, and what we have decided really is the most appropriate resolution for us to make. #bloodoath #masterthewedge #leanin #sorrynotsorry #selflove #whatmakesmeggiehappy

Beth & Meg & Adoption

ps11It’s our favorite time of the year, the time when we reflect on the things we are grateful for and specifically for the blessing of adoption. November is National Adoption Month and we are celebrating it, but not before we discuss the craziness  of the recent election, how we could all learn a little something from a pair of frozen moose, and discuss why all men might want to invest in a hot pad.

Beth & Meg & Nancy Turner & “These Is My Words” Part 2

These is My WordsThis week we wrap up our interview with the lovely Nancy Turner as we discuss her book, These Is My Words. We talk about why you didn’t need to be too creative while naming babies in the 19th century, how it was only decent to fit giving birth to them between chores, and why women’s journals from that era were perhaps not the most trustworthy. We also chat about the responsibility of the author to history (DO NOT CHALLENGE Nancy on the difference between a sword and a calvary saber as you will only find yourself red-faced), why we have Alice Walker to thank for this book, and we get a glimpse into how seriously Nancy takes her spaghetti sauce.

These is My Words“A nice girl shouldn’t go anywhere without a loaded gun and a big knife.” -Sarah Agnes Prine

What a lovely week to have Nancy Turner on the show to discuss her work “These Is My Words”, a bonafide Beth & Meg favorite! We also talk why giving birth is preferable to algebra, why you should stop at a DIY store before your next date, why all rejection letters should come from Asia, and why Nancy is proof that life begins at 40.
