    This episode absolutely broke my heart </3 On one hand there's a kind of comradery to know that just about everyone suffers the same kinds of self-doubt, but on the other hand it's painful to see people you love and look up to thinking so little of themselves <33

    Mica: Loudness doesn't equal cleverness.  Take it down a few notches in the volume department.
    Shame that Babs thinks she's not funny after being so entertaining for so many years.  She's been awesome on every podcast and live action bit she's ever done.

    It took me about three days to watch this episode, and so I got to watch nearly a dozen advertisements. After about the fifth one, I cried, "Why are there so many commercials!?!" As soon as I said that, the commercial ended, and the next frame was the picture title of the episode: Barbara's rendition of "¯\_(ツ)_/¯". The timing could not have been more perfect.

    Barb has ABSOLUTELY no reason to be self-conscious. Girl, you are gorgeous and hilarious, and I never tire of your non-stop stream of puns! You've got your own show because we all love you and want to hear more of what you have to say.


    Every. Single. Week. :D 


    Great job, and keep up the good work!

    With that shirt, is she... Bobra Dunkelman? What size is that? Small Axtra? I hope that shirt isn't itchy and made of wool. No woolen, no cry.  Sorry for Jamaican these puns. I expect a ton of dislikes, a few likes, and one love.


    Edit: 40 minutes in and... She said it too.


    And a bar called Purgatory? What is this, Mass Effect?

    Barb, you are one of my favorite people to see onscreen whether in scripted content or not.  I'm sure the RT community feels the same, keep doing what you do.

    seemingly i had no idea barb and mica were insecure of being unliked, like they seem so confident in everything. That "don't judge a book by it's cover" is truth.

    micah I know what you mean when talking about having someone that you used to call a lot and then they aren't there. Everytime I would try a new recipe or make some bbq i used to call my dad and tell him how i did it and what I used on it and how fucking great it was....i don't do that now.

    I just listened to the audio only and felt SO COMPELLED to come into the comments to defend Mica's friends with benefits point haha i completely agree with her (maybe she just said "probably will happen" instead of "always happens"), and the ladies jumping in to be like no no no you can totally be friends with benefits were probably the one who cared less in the equation. SOMEONE cares more, and over time that one person is going to feel more and be disapointed more often than not! in the very least this APPEARS to happen the vast majority of the time, and i think its a wee bit naive the way they jumped on her to disagree.

    "Watch it for the plot"... Like reading Playboy for the articles. Not wait for the plot. It's a subreddit of sex or risque clips from shows and movies.

    I think what mica is really saying is that *she* couldnt have sex with someone repeatedly and have remain platonic, and sort of projecting that as a general rule. Which i get,Alot of people can't. But i think it's entirely dependent on the individual.  For me sex can be emotional and intimate, but it can also just be something you do that gets you hot and sweaty and is a good 30 minutes of fun, like, sex can enhance romantic attraction, but emotion and sex are very much separate. Whereas for some people they are entirely intertwined. Tbh i think it's just a bad idea to set hard and fast rules of any kind when it comes to sex, because everybody is so unique in their personal tastes and viewpoints.

    It is natural for a person to have loving feeling toward the person they lost their virginity with. There is a reason that you should be married to that person. God made us that way so we would stick together as husband and wife. So that feeling is completely natural.
