What to do when the entire world has turned upside down? Eat ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream. It soothes a throat that aches from coronavirus, it's basically milk so should be allowed on the Senate floor, it coats all the negative feels in a layer of fat and sugar... it truly is the answer to all things. So eat up! This and other great life advice on today's episode of Just the Worst!
Cognitive dissonance is legit. On this episode, we get to listen to Val suddenly become her mother's daughter when faced with real-life Trump defenders. Life is hard! There is more talk about Cheer (the best show on tv), more about the worst men in the world, some other stuff and things, and promises for a topic next week. Also contests and prizes!
The best thing on TV right now? Cheer! Follow these rascally junior college competitive cheerleaders on their journey to the big competition! Kevin Hart has a documentary and gets caught cheating, and Val reviews a movie that she can't explain how she's seen yet. Patti learned about the existence of Ben Faulkner from the pod Hunting Warhead (a MUST listen) and couldn't bring herself to learn more (yet) to make it a full episode.
New year, new you! JTW is back to offer some hot tips on living your best life in 2020. Might as well, since the world is burning and our time is likely running out. Fires, floods, impending war.. this year is starting off with a bang. Feel better about it all by joining the JTW Book Club in reading The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. It's an oldie (but a goodie) about at least one horrible thing that isn't happening right now... at least not yet.
This is it guys... this is when it's all going to come together. We've finally had enough practice and we're ready for the world to hear Just the Worst podcast. So stop by, take a listen, and share with every single person you know! Happy motherf*%!ing 100!!
Today we talk about Long Way Gone, the book by Ishmael Beah. It's the story of a child soldier in Sierra Leone, but the phenomenon is happening all over the world. And it is THE WORST. It's the kind of thing that can really give you a new perspective on your life. And of course, updates on the latest TV shows, twitter rants, and other books about horrible things.
We shall overcome! Technical problems, scheduling problems, financial problems, and mouse in the house problems. Just in time for the holiday weekend, we've managed to get you an episode of Just the Worst Podcast. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We are thankful for YOU!
It's Episode #1 of the Just the Worst Book Club! We waited as long as we could, but now it's time to talk about "American Predator: The Hunt for the Most Meticulous Serial Killer of the 21st Century" by Maureen Callahan. Staying surprisingly on topic, we discuss all things Israel Keyes, who aside from being dead inside (except where his daughter is concerned), is really just another serial killer. That on occasion has sex with dead bodies. Before cutting them up and throwing them in a lake. Enjoy! And read American Predator!
We gathered additional information from everyone's go-to resource, YouTube:
True to form, we are back with a whimper. A few more technical difficulties... BUT WE DIDN"T LET THEM BEAT US! In this episode, we talk about the depression that is comparing ourselves to others, envy, forced camaraderie, and hills Val is willing to die on.
We know what you're thinking. "Oh boy, here it is... a whole episode about horses. Knew this podcast was going to devolve to this." But no! Well, yes, but also no. Have you ever heard of SafeSport? It's the US sports world's answer to Larry Nasser. And along with most other sports (that quite honestly we don't care about) it's hit the equestrian world pretty hard. Call this episode a case study of the organization and help us decide if it's a good thing, bad thing, or just another thing.
