This week Christie and Nicole have a very important announcement to share- Nicole is leaving the podcast. Don’t worry though, your favorite podcast, Underwhelmed, isn’t going anywhere!
In this mini-episode, the ladies are happy to answer your FAQ’s and Christie discusses her plans to continue on “Kelly Ripa Style”. Be sure to stay tuned for updates on the next chapter of Underwhelmed and how you can potentially be one of her rotating guest cohosts!
This week Christie and Nicole talk to Peter Madrigal from Vanderpump Rules! Don’t be fooled though, Peter is more than a pretty face. Aside from managing SUR in West Hollywood, CA, he is also the co owner a hair product line, Hairo Styling Products, and is the ambassador for a new casino customer service app, Casino Scouts. The ladies are happy to learn that Peter also supports the notion of serving four Goat Cheese Balls instead of three, and they all agree that it is important that a petition to make this change be created immediately. We hope you enjoy learning more about Peter, his ventures, SUR, and Vanderpump Rules!
Please support us in our effort to change the world and sign the petition to increase the number of goat cheese balls served at SUR! Sign the petition here- https://chn.ge/2MidhoN

Once again, Underwhelmed proves to be your best source for travel recommendations, tips, and tricks. This week Nicole shares the details of her recent trip to London and Christie isn’t shy to chime in with her tips from the time she spent in London a mere 15 years ago. Topics of their in-depth discussion include: London’s Traffic, The London Eye, Red Eye Flights, Tower Bridge, The Tower of London, Big Ben, Hop On Hop Off Bus, Changing of the Royal Guards, Sparking Water, Airport Lounges, Airport Shopping, the London Heat Wave, Buckingham Palace, High Tea, and Harrods.
Last month Christie and Nicole attempted to have a discussion about what they wish they would have learned in school with Christie’s sister-in-law, Colleen (aka Colleen from Potomac with the small kitchen), while Christie and Colleen were on the Wheeler family vacation. Unfortunately, the Dynamic Duo experienced a myriad of issues ranging from screaming children to problems with the audio. However, a new day has come! What once was known as “the lost episode” is no longer lost! Please enjoy the best parts from our discussion that hot and drink filled day in June!
Well, you've been on the edge of your seat waiting to hear all about the end of the LA trip. Wait no longer! In this episode the dynamic duo discusses their last night in the City of Angels and their BIG celebrity sighting in Part Two of their LA Recap! An outing to a fancy LA establishment did leave Christie and Nicole with an unexpected question about artichoke consumption. In true theme of the podcast, the end of a vacation and the transition to normal everyday life is about as underwhelming as things get. But it doesn't matter how long the jet lag or post-vaca bloat last, they are always ready for their next adventure!
Part Two of their discussion includes: Craig’s, Michael Bolton, California Pizza Kitchen, and Delta Sky Lounge, as well as all of the reasons to be underwhelmed when you return from a trip!

Their discussion includes, but is not limited to: Economy Rental Car, Airbnb, Night + Market, Saved By The Max, Pump, Runyon Canyon, Backyard Bowls, Venice Beach Boardwalk, James’ Beach, Gjelina, Venice Beach Ale House, SUR, Santa Monica, and Fig Restaurant.
Tune in next week for Part Two and the conclusion of Underwhelmed in LA.
This is Part Two of our very first crossover podcast with DecantDC! Part One can be found at- https://apple.co/2tRgPlD.
This week Nicole and Christie teamed up with Dana and Sarah from DecantDC to try out four different wines and discuss how exactly one makes friends as an adult. The ladies chat about the different ways they have tried to make new friends during different points in their lives- whether they were living in the same place they grew up in, alone in a city they just moved to, part of a couple that was looking for other couple friends, or as a new parent. The best part about this crossover is that everyone made new friends in the process!
Check out this week’s “How To Not be Underwhelmed” for information on the wines we tried and our rankings- http://www.underwhelmedpodcast.com/how-to-not-be-underwhelmed.html

Get excited for a very special two segment episode!
Part One: Christie and Nicole, aka "The Podcast Bandits", sit down from yet another random location in our Nation's Capital, Le Diplomat, to discuss some of life's more important questions over lunch. This Dynamic Duo has known each other for over a decade but that won't stop them from learning new things about each other every day! Are you curious as to Christie's thoughts on Chrissy Teigen, field days, vow renewals, and the surge in Oreo flavors? Do you wonder what Nicole thinks about Beyonce, Selena Gomez, cupcakes at weddings, and Chip & Joanna Gaines? Dying to know whether Christie would rather give up cheese or become a swinger? Losing sleep because you don't know Nicole's thoughts on Ariana Grande's speedy engagement? Listen in to hear the answers to all of these questions and more!
Part Two: If you get sick of learning about the Dynamic Duo, you'll love hearing the answers to these questions and more from our special guest, Danny Pellegrino. Danny is a writer, comedian, and content creator who created and hosts his own podcast, Everything Iconic. Christie and Nicole both love his podcast and enjoyed talking pop culture with him on their own show!
Danny can be found at on , on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/dannypellegrino, and on Twitter at https://twitter.com/DannyPellegrino.
Statistics show that since 2015 there has been a dramatic surge in the number of random national holidays, rose wine consumption, and over the top gender reveal parties. Shocking trends like these had Christie and Nicole asking themselves the age old question, "When did this become a thing?"
Armed with very little research and mostly their own personal thoughts and feelings, the Dynamic Duo set out to understand when things like Pinterest crafts, nitro cold brew, and being vegan became the norm. Along the way the ladies discover that they are definitely on board with some of these trends, while others get a hard pass in their book. We invite you to take this journey with us and want to hear what you think!
Update: National Day to be Underwhelmed falls on the first Saturday of October and will be celebrated in conjunction with our One Year Anniversary Live Podcast and Celebration on October 6, 2018 in Baltimore, MD. Be sure to save the date!
Have you ever found yourself in a public setting thinking "Wow, people that I don't know can be annoying?" Have you ever felt bothered when you're forced to overhear someone else's life updates while waiting for a fitting room at the Old Navy outlet? Have you ever rolled your eyes as you watch a fellow airplane passenger deplane first despite the fact that they were seated in row 24? Do you ever cringe while in a crowded bar and you're forced to touch people just to maneuver yourself to get a drink? Have you ever been in a meeting, or college info session, and someone in the room decides that the question/answer session is the appropriate time to discuss their personal finances?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then this episode's for you!
This dynamic duo is generally underwhelmed with experiences that force us to deal with strangers. Maybe you have similar experiences? Or maybe you just want to hear about our dueling Memorial Day weekends? Either way- listen for fun, and maybe even some inspiration!
