Looking for pictures for the cover of this episode was THE WORST. And that is all I have to say about that. In this episode we talk about Bohemian Rhapsody, Live Aid, Farm Aid, feeding the world, and not feeding the world.
What happens when you take a week off from podcasting and go home to celebrate the holidays with your parents? You spend the weekend rummaging through boxes of old pictures and take a trip down memory lane. Oh, and you also revert right back to your teenage self and realize those family dynamics are hard to shake!
On this special holiday episode of Just the Worst, we do for podcasting what Henry Cavill does for Superman. That is to say, not a lot. We're burned out and overwhelmed with all that is wrong with the world, the fires in California, the famine in Yemen, the killing of journalists by the Saudis, etc. etc. Plus, having to move two times in one month? The WORST.
If you are wondering why people are fleeing South American countries for somewhere safer, the first place to look is right here in the USA. Turns out, we're pretty big on messing around with other governments for our own benefit, without too much worry about how it is going to effect the people who actually live in that country. Warning: this is not a comprehensive history - it is much simplified and in the JTW tradition, probably a little muddled.
AC, is that you? And other important questions. Today's episode Features Tinder ghosting and birthday bashes in Bodega Bay. Really, what more could you want in an episode?
To all my friends! Especially those of you that get this episode on a visceral level. It's pretty much the worst living in addiction or with someone who is. These days there aren't many people whose lives haven't been affected in some way. But if not, here's a little glimpse into this bummer of an affliction.
It's finally here! It's Valentina's birthday! So for this episode she talks about whatever she damn well pleases. Well, she does that every week. Anyway. Today we cover birthdays, weddings, dating, tattoos, and other nonsense.
How has this story not been told on every single one of the zillions of true crime pods we listen to??? Vague childhood memories come to the present day in this episode, as we discuss this crazy-ass but seemingly forgotten Southern California serial killer. Whatever you do, do. not. get. in. the. van.
Sing it with us people! Everything is awful! We talk parents, Kavanaugh, how we treat animals, envy, and, of course, Valentina's pending birthday.
We don't know if you know this, but it turns out that the human race is like totally destroying the planet. There are million ways we are doing this, but this episode looks at just one. And it's something that seems innocuous. It's in peanut butter. It's in soap. It's in practically everything it seems. It's called palm oil and it's ruining everything!!
