Happy almost New Year! As y’all know, it hasn’t been our day, our week, our month, or even our year. And since we can’t ring in the New Year with friends IRL, we figured our TV friends, Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and Phoebe were the next best thing. Join Cate and Lori as they revisit season 5, episode 11 of Friends, “The One with All the Resolutions”! And because besties tell each other everything, they gossip about sex at midnight, swamp ass, leather while pregnant, farting on a first date, and offer their heartfelt message of love to you in the new year. Cheers! The Fart that Almost Altered My Destiny by Anna Lind Thomas   K.I.T.
Welcome to the party, pals. Today Cate and Lori tackle the iconic Christmas (?) blockbuster, Die Hard. They invite you to “come out the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…” as they dive deep into the elevator shaft of the film’s titillating trivia, it’s place in the great Christmas film debate, and its die hard fan base ... all while getting sloshed on spiked eggnog. And oh yeah, they chat maiden names, crippling telephone shyness, wild Christmas parties, and "Huey Lewis's" surprise cameo in the film. Yippee ki yay, melon farmers. K.I.T.  
Grab your Big Gulps, kids. Cate and Lori are gettin’ really real with 1994’s Gen X classic, Reality Bites starring Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, and Ben Stiller. The "emotionally mature" ladies talk about the passions and pitfalls of loving Troy Dyer types, social security numbers flying freely around college campuses, littering as a major turn-off, and how trading principles for rent totally bites. K.I.T.
Cate and Lori TOTALLY FREAK OUT over 1982’s endearing and oddly unsettling made-for-TV movie, The Electric Grandmother, starring Maureen Stapleton and Edward Herrmann. And if you're like, "Never heard of it," you're in for a big surprise as the ladies recount the nightmare nostalgia associated with this super-messed-up-how-is-this-made-for-kids-TV-movie-about-weird-robot-grannies that still has Lori calling out for her mommy. Full movie: The Electric Grandmother K.I.T.
CONTENT WARNING: This episode explores sensitive themes such as sexual assault, religion, womanhood, sexuality, and identity. Listener discretion is advised. Cate and Lori honor singer, songwriter, pianist, and survivor, Tori Amos and her debut solo triumph, 1992’s Little Earthquakes — a revolutionary album responsible for sending shock waves on to our airwaves and into our souls. Join these true Tori fans as they discuss the way Little Earthquakes' "mighty tremors with tender tiptoes" shaped their coming of age, private pain, personal truths, and precious power.   Tori Amos - Crucify (Official Music Video) Tori Amos - Silent All These Years (Official Music Video) Tori Amos - China (Official Music Video) Tori Amos - Winter (Official Music Video) RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) K.I.T.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re looking for love, you’ve come to the right place! Cate and Lori spread the love with 1993’s romantic comedy blockbuster Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Romantics and cynics unite as the ladies talk love at first sight, believing in signs, marriage over 40, broken engagement rings, internet stalking, and of course, tiramisu. K.I.T.
Happy Groundhog Day! If every. single. day. of the last 11 months has felt like the worst deja vu of your life, Cate and Lori got you, babe. Join the gals as they get surprisingly deep on 1993’s blockbuster film Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, and Chris Elliott. And because no two episodes are alike, the ladies chat about the weird things they've done in the pandemic to feel more alive, porn in waiting rooms, perfect days they wouldn't mind repeating, and the glory of waking up without a care in the world. K.I.T.
You are cordially invited to join Cate and Lori as they bow down to an iconic album larger than the stratosphere itself: U2’s 1987 masterpiece, The Joshua Tree. They may not be even better than the real thing, but they might be kinda close as they fangirl over the album’s revolutionary singles, sexy AF frontman, and its very special place in our collective hearts.

Join Cate and Lori as the pay homage to Judy Blume’s beloved, and yes, controversial young adult novel, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. Because this 1970 literary classic holds a special place in the heart of nearly every GenX woman, they’ll explore the book’s timeless themes involving friendship, puberty, and the hard questions we dare ask while taking those brave first steps toward self-discovery. And yes, the besties spill their secret sisterhood stories involving their first "menstroo-ation", first kisses, and first bras, along with their earliest sex ed memories and the wild wondering of what it all means.

Hey guys, today Cate and Lori are singing the praises of singer, songwriter, actress, feminist, activist, and all-around queen, Cyndi Lauper and her breakout 1983 debut album, She’s So Unusual. The gals dance deep into the album’s bops, ballads, and sometimes unusual music videos. In true Cyndi form, things get a little colorful as the ladies talk about their suburban childhood, middle school cafeteria lunches, phone rules, crazy nights past 8 PM, and that very real single teardrop pain of running away from love.

Baby, it's cold outside, and since we won’t be escaping to a tropical paradise anytime soon, Cate and Lori thought a round of cocktails and dreams might help warm our collective spirits. Pull up a bar stool as the ladies drink up 1988’s blockbuster film, Cocktail starring Tom Cruise, Elisabeth Shue, Bryan Brown, and Kelly Lynch. Sip and stay for the convo involving vacation romances, pretty criers, sex on the beach, rooting for the wrong person, surprise twins, and water as the ultimate cure-all. K.I.T.
Today we're bringing you Cate's ALL-TIME FAVORITE Christmas movie from her childhood, 1983’s The Best Christmas Pageant Ever!  Full disclosure: Lori had never seen — or even heard about — this ABC made-for-TV movie starring Loretta Swit and Fairuza Balk, but at only 48 minutes long and available to stream for free, she was up for some wholesome and heartwarming holiday family viewing. Join in the holiday spirit as the girls chat about being unsupervised kids in the '80s, the necessity (and danger) of super long telephone cords, the burden of carrying seven names, kids smoking cigars, and the beauty of offering grace.  Full movie: The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (1983) K.I.T.
This Christmas, Cate and Lori are giving their hearts to someone special (psst! YOU) as they revisit Wham’s chart-topping, toe-tapping hits “Last Christmas” and “Everything She Wants”. Released as a double A-side in December 1984, the gals dive deep into the dramatic music videos, heartbreaking lyrics, and too-good trivia that make both songs karaoke favorites to this day. They also chat about the awkwardness of hanging out with an ex, the risk of breaking hip while sledding, and the pure cinematic value of strategically placed bed sheets, ah-ha ah, ah-ha ah, doo doo doo, la, la, la, la, la. Last Christmas (Official Music Video) Everything She Wants (Official Music Video) K.I.T.
GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS! Cate and Lori decided to kill a bottle of wine and dish on 1989’s cult classic Heathers starring Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, and Shannen Doherty. It’s no secret this film is "so very" with its dark humor and colorful characters (#teammartha), so the good time gals invite you to join their clique as they get into the red scrunchie of it all. But first, what's your damage, Heather? K.I.T.
Pull up a chair as Cate and Lori dish on the iconic Thanksgiving episodes of Who's the Boss? and The Cosby Show!  The gals talk turkey about The Cosby Show —"Bonjour, Sondra" (Season 1, Episode 10) and Who's the Boss? — "Thanksgiving at Mrs. Rossini's" (Season 2, Episode 9). Consider it all of the best parts of Thanksgiving as the ladies serve up extra helpings of the delicious sarcasm you love and none of the yucky side dishes you don't.    K.I.T.
WE ARE THE YOUTH GONE WILD! Join Cate and Lori as they rock out to an album near and dear to their 8th grade hearts — Skid Row’s 1989 self-titled debut album.  Crank the volume as the gals discuss all the *ahem* feelings Sebastian Bach’s low-rise leather pants and high cheekbones gave them, while revisiting the music videos of the singles from this anthem-rich album. Come for the bottle-throwing, bad-behaving Bach, stay for the candid convos involving bedside table drawers, online dating, and of course, Gilmore Girls.

Cate and Lori are kicking off their Sunday shoes to dish on 1984’s classic feel-good film, Footloose, starring Kevin Bacon, John Lithgow, SJP, and a red boot-wearing Lori Singer. Join the girls as they talk about tractor chicken, the effect of rock-and-roll's "gospel of easy sexuality and relaxed morality" on their adolescence, manic pixie dream girls, and the sometimes overwhelming urge to dance your ass off in a warehouse.   K.I.T.
Cate and Lori's pop-culture origin story starts like so many origin stories ... with a virgin — Madonna’s iconic 1984 album, Like a Virgin, that is. This was the album that started it all for them.
