Totally Mommy Podcast
She’s a hilarious comedy performer and actress, and has such a great, balanced insight into motherhood – mama to three, MORGAN WALSH comes on and we discuss the good (pizza hugs), the bad (skin problems), and the funny (lunchbox boobs) plus a discussion about cooking with the kids and then she and Elizabeth answer listener questions about whether or not you have to know 100% that you want kids, and whether or not to remain in a friendship with someone who struggles with alcoholism as a new mother. Enjoy!
While cleaning out our house to make room for baby, we found a few long lost gems. One of those is a large photo of Andy, sitting in his apartment when he was 24:
I love this picture for so many reasons. This was taken right around the time we “re-met” and were falling in love and it captures who he was in that time so perfectly. Obviously he lived in a disgusting apartment in New York. Actually it might have been THE most disgusting apartment in New York. You don’t have to look too closely to see the dirt on the walls. What you can’t see is that there were also strips of paint hanging from the ceiling that would flake onto everything all the time. His bed was a gross mattress on the floor. But there’s more to it – the skateboard he rode around the city, the stuffed dog he loved sitting in the corner name Monie who was usually wearing a tie like the bad ass bitch she was, the synthesizer in the other corner that he’d make music on until 4 am every night… it’s all so ANDY.
I had a love/hate relationship with that room – I was totally grossed out by the way he lived and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that even at 24 years old I had some teensy tiny reservations about his “prospects” or whatever you want to call it. But his charm and ambition and talent and spirit totally overrode that and I was utterly smitten. I happily slept in that bed next to him and woke up with lead paint chips in my mouth. Now I look at this photo and I LOVE that room. Because really, without that room, the dirt, the joy, the recklessness, the struggle, the fun, and the passion, Andy wouldn’t even make sense. This made him who he is today.
Totally Married Podcast
Happy Anniversary! It’s been 6 years of this wild ride called marriage so naturally Elizabeth and Andy discuss balls (of the felt variety), shoplifters, and death. Then they answer listener questions about racist costumes, where to live in LA, how to humor a funny guy boss, whether to continue a friendship that feels null and void, what’s the best place to start if you want to rescue a dog (yay!) whether or not to buy a baby gift for a porn star you’ve been enjoying (love this one!) and lastly, our first ever question about a conflict – we hear from both sides of the story and discuss! Enjoy!
She’s a writer and comedian – you know her from her hilarious podcast “This Feels Terrible” and her frequent appearances on “Harmontown”, the lovely ERIN MCGATHY is back to discuss her recent trip to Scotland (and engagement!) why Elizabeth’s inbred theory might not hold much water, how Andy may have crossed the line when showing her pornography, and lastly she offers a new perspective on handling jealousy of other people’s success. Enjoy!
