In celebration of their 20th episode, Christie and Nicole wanted to introduce themselves and Underwhelmed Podcast to newer listeners! They each compiled a list of five things that they are almost always underwhelmed by and revealed their selections to each other during this fabulous episode.
SPOILER ALERT: Nicole is underwhelmed by The Academy Awards, Preakness, New Years Eve, Highlights, and Graduation. Christie is underwhelmed by Superhero Movies, BYOB Parties, Clubs and EDM, Competitions for Bragging Rights, and DIY Vacations.
In this episode, Christie and Nicole draw parallels between dating and the process of finding and interviewing for jobs. As women in their thirties, who have both worked within different companies and industries, they have a lot to say about the process. Christie and Nicole are both disappointed to find that they were lied to as children and they can’t actually be anything they want to be. Other topics discussed are the dynamic duo’s underwhelming valentine’s days, Jennifer Aniston’s devastating news, and some clarification around Amy Schumer’s relationship status.
This week Christie and Nicole‘s friend and previous guest, Heather Preston, joins them to discuss the both overwhelming and underwhelming world of online dating. The trio discusses the tedious process, the different apps available to singles (especially Raya and Luxy), the ideas they have that might improve the process, and something they once watched called “Dating on Demand”. Additionally, although she is married and not looking to fill her calendar with dates, Christie explains to the group that she recently used an app called Peanut whose process is similar to that of Tinder but is for moms looking to find friends.
Christie and Nicole are coming at you this week with an eclectic assortment of updates and recently relevant topics that have peaked their interest.
The Dynamic Duo previously joked about Ancestry DNA, Christie forgot her mom was adopted while doing so and now has some major life updates to share as a result of her mom’s Ancestry DNA kit. While on the topic of adoption, the ladies also chat a bit about surrogacy and their lack of desire to be one.
Switching gears, Christie and Nicole chat a bit about the upcoming winter Olympics and how neither of them wish to venture to South Korea or North Korea. Additionally, although they are #TeamNancy, they are confused as to why Nancy Kerrigan would be a Super Bowl commentator and are underwhelmed by all the recently resurfaced coverage of the time Tonya Harding hired someone to attack her. They are also underwhelmed by Justin Timberlake’s most recent work and the fact that Jessica Biel wouldn’t allow the other members of *NSYNC to be invited to their wedding, as well as the fact Dane Cook is dating a 19-year-old.
