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 fro a trip!

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!

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!

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!
This Memorial Day Christie and Nicole give their listeners the gift of time travel. In order to keep the podcasts coming during holiday weekend travel, the dynamic duo pre-pre-recorded this week’s conversation (since we guess each week is technically pre-recorded until we go live). Christie and Nicole discuss tales of shared Memorial weekends past and their upcoming travel plans. Nicole is having a basic holiday at the beach while Christie has chosen the more hipster getaway inland. Oh my, you’re probably thinking, with two drastically different vacations what hash tag will they choose!? The dynamic duo also try to channel their inner Long Island Medium and Tyler Henry by predicting future events. And they predict that you’ll get a laugh out of this episode!
In Part Two of their Royal Wedding Recap, the Dynamic Duo does a deep dive into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding ceremony and reception. They cover everything from their favorite moments to the guest list, flowers, and elderflower lemon wedding cake. The ladies also share their thoughts on the Givenchy (ceremony) and Stella McCartney (reception) dresses Meghan wore and discuss the naughty speech Prince William gave during the intimate reception. Cheers to the newlyweds!
Prince Harry and Megan Markle have officially tied the knot and there is a lot to recap! Join the Dynamic Duo for Part One of their Royal Wedding Recap, where the ladies dive into all the events leading up to the big day!
Celebrity podcasters often recap tales of their exotic vacations and glamorous tours. So why shouldn’t Christie and Nicole!?
The dynamic duo went on the very anticipated one-day vacation to the capital of the free world- Washington DC! They visited no historic sights (unless you count the hotel wallpaper) and walked into zero museums- there simply wasn’t time! Christie and Nicole did, however, meet the hilarious duo Heather McDonald and Chris Franjola, somehow managed to be underwhelmed by cheese, and were shocked to learn that one day vacations seem rushed.
If you ever plan to spend 24 hours in Washington DC, Christie and Nicole provide you their official recommendations from this trip. They Include:
