Episode 22: Meet our Bachelorettes

September 29, 2019

Last week we “Met Mike”, this week we are thrilled to introduce to you to our 3 lovely bachelorettes!

These 3 ladies are all super eligible in their own ways! It’s safe to say that all of them have their SH*T together!- You’re welcome Mike!

We went through these bachelorettes' bios line by line and were so intrigued by some of their answers, we had to call them for clarification. One bachelorette said she was looking for someone to try NEW things with her in ALL aspects of life ;) … (you can use your own imagination) while another invited her roommate to chime in to offer some REAL truths about what she thinks her friend needs in her life. HINT: apparently NOT a hippie with a man bun! 

We can’t wait for you to get to know our wonderful bachelorettes!

Episode 20: Enneagram

Episode 20: Enneagram

September 15, 2019

On this episode, we talk about the ENNEAGRAM. You may have heard us talking about our "numbers" in previous episodes, or from other people, and wondered what the heck is everyone talking about.

It's like a personality system, similar to Meyers Briggs, that says everyone has a basic personality type that explains motivations and behaviours.

We run through the 9 basic personality types, talk about what number we are (can you guess?!), and how we've seen it in our own lives, to understand ourselves better and the people around us. 


Episode 19: Interracial Relationships

Episode 19: Interracial Relationships

September 8, 2019

This week’s episode is extra fun! We invited our awesome friend Christina to discuss the UPS and DOWNS of being in an interracial relationship.

Joanne and Christina both share their stories being Asian (Chinese and Korean) married to white guys. Join us as we laugh at embarrassing stories about their husband’s first meeting with their families, and learn about all the cultural differences they've had to overcome and endearing family traditions that they have adapted as their own.

Trust us, you don’t have to be in an interracial relationship to enjoy this one, In fact you don’t have to be in a relationship at all! Because somewhere during our discussion we burst out into tears laughing about the confusion that Christina’s husband had during their traditional Korean wedding in which he had zero idea about what was going on.

This is absolutely one of the funniest episode we have recorded thus far! We can’t wait for you to tune into this one!

Episode 18: Children…Yay or Nay?

September 1, 2019

Children… YaY or NaY?

Kids are soooo adorable! From their cheeks, to their soft skin to the smell of their baby skin, everything about them is just (Heart Eyes)… but to choose a life without children and have extra cash to spend on vacation is undeniably an extremely attractive option as well!

This week we dive into the YAYS and NAYS of having children and whether we see them in our futures or not!

We have soo many fun stories to share about our friend’s kids, how our relationships have evolved with friends with kids, and what we “THINK” we would be like as parents… key word: THINK.

Episode 17: Jealousy in Friendships and Relationships

Episode 17: Jealousy in Friendships and Relationships

August 25, 2019


Jealousy… it happens to the best of us and brings out WORST in all of us!

This week we talk about this larger than life emotion that can sometimes takes over our mind, controls our behavior and leaves us thinking how in the world we got here in the first place! 

Jealousy can come into play in all relationships- Yep that can includes your closest friends too!

We will be looking back and laughing at all the moments of jealousy on our part and sharing how we got over it, and what was really going through our mind in those moments. *hint hint* it was likely our own insecurities and not knowing who we could trust. 

Can’t wait for you all to listen to this relatable one (we hope) 

Episode 16: Cheating Defined

Episode 16: Cheating Defined

August 18, 2019

Cheating… have you done it? Have you experienced it and how do you define it? 

This week we discuss a sensitive topic that often bring up many different emotions. 

Whether you are on the receiving end of it, the one acting on it, the one who witnessed it, or the one comforting someone who has been cheated on… at the end of the day…it’s all heartbreaking and an emotional roller coaster.

One of us has been through EVERY SINGLE ONE of the scenarios above… and let’s just say it’s not pretty and something that took years to process and understand! BUT if you are going through this now or helping someone through this journey… one thing we can guarantee, is that there is light at the end of the tunnel! :)

You know what’s more nerve-wreaking than going to a job interview, public speaking, and getting your wisdom tooth removed COMBINED?! Meeting your boyfriend/girlfriend’s parents for the FIRST TIME! – who’s with us on this one!?

Join us this week as we share embarrassing stories about our encounters and moments that sent us straight into PANIC MODE! What was supposed to be a relaxing couples weekend at the cottage, turned into a full-on family reunion… LOL

With that said, one of us has become an expert at winning over the in laws, while the other has some serious work to do!

Episode 14: Ask Me Anything - A Basic Bro Edition

August 4, 2019

This week’s episode is going to be EXTRA BASIC! We invited our FIRST EVER special guest, a “Basic Bro” to get a male perspective on how to navigate the modern dating scene.

This Basic Bro reveals EVERYTHING from... how long he waits to ask a girl our after swiping right, to where he takes his dates and even lets us in on the DEAL BREAKERS that will get you ghosted.

And YES we were somewhat shocked with his answers… just goes to show how different men and women really are!

Episode 13: Do You Believe in “The One”

Episode 13: Do You Believe in “The One”

July 28, 2019

“Match made in heaven” “My one true love” – what do you feel when you hear those phrases? Are you making heart eyes? Or are you cringing with a questionable face?

This week we discuss our thoughts on whether there is only ONE person in the world, that is completely made just for you! Take a second and look back at your first love, your most painful heartbreak, that guy you almost dated, and the person you should have given a second chance to. How would that have played out and impacted your life? Listen as we go back and forth on this topic and struggle to find common ground.
One of us thinks there are 100s of people who we could end up with (Really? 100s!?) and the other truly believes that there is only ONE true love (Hopeless Romantic Much!?)

Come along for ALL our “WHAT IF” moments- but make sure to DRINK UP!
