This week, prior to heading out to their individual Christmas festivities, Christie and Nicole set out to record a short episode to share their feelings on Christmas shopping and Christmas gifts. As it turns out, the Dynamic Duo also has a lot of semi-related thoughts and stories to share as well, and thus ends up recording a full, regular length episode.
In addition to their feelings on Christmas gifts, they discuss Boxing Day, Nicole’s fear of becoming a hoarder, Christie's future inheritance, teacher gifts, rental clothing subscriptions, their love of camcorders, ways they have used camcorders, and the best gift Nicole ever received- an overhead projector.
In this week's episode, Christie and Nicole take a break from the official Underwhelmed Podcast Christmas Party in Richmond, VA to chat with their friend Lisa Iker about running, races, and running culture. Christie and Lisa ran the Columbus, OH Marathon in 2013, but you already know this if you are related to, friends with, briefly met, or randomly passed by either one of them. Nicole has also run her fair share of races since it is the basic thing to do.
With their past experiences in mind, the trio discusses the cost of running races they will never win, the training schedules associated with long distance running, and whether or not they looked like models while wearing their official finisher metals and eating free bananas.
Other updates in this episode include: Christie & Nicole's 12 Underwhelming Days of Christmas Giveaway winners, Christie's holiday decor and New Years resolution, and Nicole's workplace contests.
This week the Dynamic Duo chats with one of Christie’s former coworkers, Rob Volpe, about his international love story and real life 90 Day Fiancé experience. Rob met his now wife, Paola, while living in Columbia and brought her back to the United States through the K-1 visa program. During this process the couple learned about the TLC show 90 Day Fiancé and began the casting process, however, they ultimately decided against moving forward for various reasons. This adorable couple is now WAY past the 90 days and Christie and Nicole were excited to learn more about this process and how he feels that the reality show stacks up to his personal experience.
Other topics this week include: Christie and Nicole’s 12 Underwhelming Days of Christmas Giveaway updates; the most underwhelming Podcast of the Month contest of them all; MTV’s new (and definitely not underwhelming) show Floribama Shore; and the fact that some people have the ability to drink an entire bottle of liquor in one sitting.
In this week’s episode, Christie and Nicole set out to tell the story of one of their most memorable and underwhelming experiences, one that almost landed Christie in the slammer – On-Campus Catering. This also reminds them of the other underwhelming jobs they held prior to starting their professional careers.
The Dynamic Duo also updates each other on the yuletide activities, chats about the firing of Today Show host, Matt Lauer, and shares their excitement over Prince Harry’s royal engagement to Meghan Markle.
