2020 has been an interesting year so far and Thanksgiving is upon us already. Since this year will likely not be as socially festive due to the pandemic, we decided to recount some of our own Thanksgiving stories from years past. This somehow results in us talking a lot about pie. Like, a lot. During the Shooketh Not Stirred segment, Chopstixx prepared a little Thanksgiving trivia for all of us so that we learn some history and fun facts about the holiday. Afterwards, we all share  what we're thankful for this year.
Today, we take a trip down memory lane. So that our banchans can get to know us better, we talk about the people we were in high school and how that helped shaped the adults we became. Both Laney and Banchan John had pretty surprising adolescent lives. Might want to tune in to find out how and why it's surprising. OH and we end up trailing off and talking about ghost peppers towards the end so there might be a new upcoming challenge that DJ Indoe is somehow getting roped into.
On today's episode, we end up getting a bit of double trouble.  The Shogo Twins, Rad and Dylon Shogo, stop by the show as our special guests. With 2.9 million TikTok fans at only 21 years old, they're both the youngest and most well known guests we've had to date. Tune in to hear about their journey to success. Along the way, we get to mess around and end up getting to know them as people. 
Special guest, Fedora AKA Fefe, joins us on the show today. After kicking off the usual happy moments and binges of the week, we get right into meeting Fefe and finding out what she's all about. Not only does she share her experience of becoming a realtor, she was nice enough to share tips with us about buying and selling homes. Consider it a free webinar, except that everyone's getting drunk at the same time. Easily beats any webinar that I've ever had to attend.
Meeting Asian parents: is it always scary? I guess it really depends on who you ask. This week, the C&K crew has some stories they'd like to share on their experiences. Along the way, we drop some helpful tips to help you out with what can often be an ordeal. We fortunately have a good mix of different kinds of Asians on the team (along with drop-in guests in the studio), so we're able to run the gamut of the different cultures that Asia offers. Oh, and John gets drunk again this week.
If you grew up Asian or around Asians, you know there are a fair share of superstitions that each culture has. We go over a few of the more notable ones, as well as bring up some that you may not have been aware of. DJ Indoe and Chopstixx join Laney and John so the whole group weighs in on the topic.
With a name like Cocktails & Kimchi, we had to talk about alcohol sooner or later. After going over our show binges, we dive right into our favorite types of alcohol as well as our favorite drunk stories. We then go over a brief history of alcohol itself and end the episode with our tips on how to treat your bartenders. Oh, and John gets pretty drunk again.
On today's episode, we talk about sex and John gets drunk, again. Before he gets too sauced, we talk about the 11 different Sex Personality Types as described by Vanessa Marin. We came across this post from the Huffington Post and felt it was worth sharing with all of you and having our own little discussion about it. We got to learn a lot about each other and it ended up being a lot of fun.
On this episode, the CK crew discusses work thaaangs. Work etiquette, horror stories, horrible bosses are just some of the things we talk about. We also share some tips from having been on both sides of the employee/manager relationship. We got to be helpful and funny this week so you don't want to miss out!
On today's episode, we welcome Marquita AKA the Millennial Dating Coach! The CK team has been talking a lot about relationships lately so it only makes sense to bring on a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)/National Certified Counselor (NCC) that specializes in millennial relationships. We don't want this opportunity to go to waste so we make sure to ask Marquita some pointed questions that not only we came up with, but also those asked by you, the listener. Real knowledge is about get dropped so you don't want to miss out.
Steph Teaze joins us on the show. After John and Laney talk about their recent show binges, we welcome Steph to the show. Being a hairstylist by profession, she shares with us how the stay at home has affected her livelihood and her industry at large. Since business has been kind of slow, Steph has turned to her love of cooking and restarted her YouTube channel. We also learn about how she got through a rough relationship and how big of a BTS fan she is. This episode is simply packed full of content!
On this episode, the CK team reflects hard on their dating history. Laney and John bring in DJ Indoe and Chopstixx talk about first dates, dating apps, ghosting, and friends with benefits. John shares his prom story and Laney shares her thoughts on how people should deal with rejection.
In this episode, another John joins the fray. Our second guest, John, is an acupuncturist and an avid cook, with a darker than normal history. This dark history created quite the wild ride for his journey to start his own practice. Is this making you curious? Well I guess you just need to tune in to find out the whole story.
In this episode, Chopstixx celebrates her birthday. In Notflix and Chill, Laney talks about Riverdale and John is watching The Crowned Clown. We get into some fun stuff in Drinking Games and DJ Indoe joins the cast to talk about first times. No, not that "first time," but the various other firsts that everyone has in their lives. After the fun, we get a bit serious and talk about how to stay positive in the face of competition.
In this episode, we have our very first guest of the show! Nadine is a professional photographer, certified accountant, professional drifter, and mother of 4. There's a lot to unpack, so join us as we learn about how she got to where she is, and how she's able to accomplish so much.
In this episode, Laney Darling and Banchan John talk about the poker tax, sake baths, NOTflix and Chillin with strangers, if Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead created a show (Kingdom), becoming one with the poop, Her Private Life and aggressively knocking zombies. Then we get into the fun stuff and play Would you Rather including the biggest debate: reverse mermaid or reverse centaur? Then we play Would you Rather, celebrity style and end it with a little F/Marry/Kill. We discuss John not being able to visit family, Laney having to cancel wedding plans due to quarantine and doing embarrassing things in front of your significant other.
Topics discussed on today's episode: Hotel De Luna, Hi Bye, Mama!, learning about Life Path Numbers, why Banchan John is a natural born leader, what Laney Darling has in common with Eleanor Rosevelt and romance during quarantine.
