This week Christie and Nicole were inspired by the woman that attacked her avid gamer boyfriend with a samurai sword after learning that he downloaded Tinder to his phone and may or may not have been cheating on her. Was his gaming too much or was her reaction? The Dynamic Duo weighs in.
From there, the ladies share stories of scorned lovers and the crazy things they have done in the heat of the moment. These traumatic tales include, but are not limited to:
Nicole and Christie also share some life updates- Nicole attended an Areal Yoga class and Christie believes her Amazon Echo or “Alexa” is stealing her sitcom ideas.

This week Christie and Nicole discuss underwhelming fashion trends that they have and have not, but mostly have, participated in throughout their lifetime. The dynamic duo travel in time through the 1990s, 2000s, and current day, discussing many styles that were super cool...at the time.
Did your parents dress you in matching windbreaker track suits? Or were you more of a Juicy Couture tracksuit type of teen?
How high were your Steve Madden platforms? And was the choker really all that comfortable of a jewelry choice?
Are tankinis the work of the devil? And do people in the trucking industry really wear trucker hats?
Will the cold shoulder top end up leaving us full of regrets?
While we can't answer all of these age old questions, we'll definitely get you thinking! If your closet was predominantly made up of jean skirts and gaucho pants for the better part of 2005, 2006, and 2007, this episode is for you. And even if not, Christie and Nicole still think you'll get a kick out of reliving these underwhelming styles.

This week the dynamic duo are in the Baltimore "studio" together! Christie visits Nicole's hometown to celebrate many birthdays. However, an innocent 32nd birthday brunch takes a turn when the girls and their friends somehow find themselves un-involved in good old fashioned bar fight. While Christie and Nicole are moderately traumatized by the incident, they know the show must go on! They are truly turning lemons into lemonade as they become the leading voices of our generation for "bar fight awareness."
Christie and Nicole are joined by family and friends for their first in the Underwhelmed Debate Series: Let's Get it OM vs. Namaste Home. Christie's sister, yoga teacher and enthusiast, convinces listeners of the health benefits and fun that can be found in the yoga practice. A dear friend of the dynamic duo and second time guest, Natalie, is a yoga skeptic. They battle it out in a very formal debate moderated by Christie and Nicole. Who wins? Well you can be the judge of that! Keep an eye out for our post-debate poll.
The big debate got heated and we were having so much fun moderating that we didn't realize some of the mics were not working!

This week Christie and Nicole discuss a variety of things that are considered to have cult followings, yet they continue to only slightly enthuse (at most) the Dynamic Duo. While both ladies agree that they could potentially get into some of them, they aren’t there quite yet due to a lack of knowledge, time, or energy (or all three).
SPOILERS: What are some Underwhelming Cults? Game of Thrones (Star Wars, Star Trek, and Harry Potter are also brought into the conversation as a comparison); Jimmy Buffett (although both have an interest in seeing him live and aspire to have the lifestyle he has created); Jeep (with VW Bugs and PT Cruisers given as a comparison and a story about a child being picked up from school in a hearse thrown in); Harleys (with tangents about Biker Gangs, tattoos, piercings, and gauges); Crossfit (with comparisons to Scientology and zumba); and Southwest Airlines (Christie is underwhelmed, NOT Nicole).
Christie is not underwhelmed by Dave Matthews Band or Costco. Nicole is not underwhelmed by spin classes.
