S1.E10 – Put Down The Glitter

Yes you heard a little bit of actual recorded music in the intro today! No, it is not our new theme song, this is “Party Divided” by StatusQ. In our season 1 finale we talk about the time we wore teeny tiny bikinis, killer bods, and our smooth hairless bodies. I hope you read it all breathy. You guessed right, we are talking body image this week. Fresh off the tube (ha ha! turned it on it’s side) experience down the San Marcos River we delve into our personal shames, talk about where we are on the scale of 1 to hate every cell of my body, and top it off with a brief discussion regarding the mammalian phenomenon of having body hair.

  1. Two favorite moments of the podcast were “I don’t want to smell like urine” and Indian women have to be smooth because Indian men are so hairy. I will miss the distraction of your podcasts while you are on hiatus.
