OMG it's almost the 100th episode of our show!!!
But first we have episode #99, which is also really great.
Today Heather brings a special guest, Jessica Duncan, owner of Fun4TallyKids.com, to give recommendations for family fun during COVID.
Then, Heather lets Chryssy and Jessica into the grab bag for a conversation about free speech, censorship, and misinformation in the world of social media.
Heather picks up right where Chryssy left off with a recommendation for a great tool she loves for teaching her kids resilience and positive thinking - you can buy your own Big Life Journal here: https://biglifejournal.com/
Then it's time for Heather's Headlines, this time about humpback whales making a comeback in New York City. New York City???? You heard it here last.
That makes Heather wonder what else is making a comeback, and the gals discuss ways to turn your life around and come out new and improved. Good stuff!!
Chryssy recommends a music artist that might surprise you. It surprised her. She also reminds us that the Billboard Music Awards are on tonight and that might be fun.
We move on to a discussion of the many and varied memes that are circling the interwebs these days. Some of them are very funny. If you can put your political leanings aside for the sake of enjoying art, even more of them are funny. Head over to the How To Do Life Facebook page for some examples of memes we’re really liking right now.
Today’s grab bag is all about old things that are actually young, like Jonathan the tortoise and the United States of America.
If you need a smile, here a link to Jonathan’s story. It’s worth a click. He’s very cute. https://www.thedodo.com/in-the-wild/tortoise-jonathan-oldest-animal-in-the-world
We also got a little history lesson today, learning about the United States’ 10th President, who left office in 1845, and his STILL LIVING RIGHT NOW grandson. Here’s the link to that story. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/grandson-10th-president-john-tyler-dies-180975992/?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=socialmedia&fbclid=IwAR0LsCQ34o2q6zVrDwRFQ3B4XhPT4g1KrwmGyzRwt-6VEuINbKoWv8KyKaw Thank you to Chryssy’s friend Neil for sharing this article and for Chryssy’s Sissy Lisa for adding the perspective that maybe this country will be OK – after all we are just petulant kids.
Today unveiled the first ever Chryssy’s Book Club book. She chose The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. This book is a quick read and should lead to some interesting discussion. We will talk about it in about 5 weeks, so you’ve got time to order it and get it read. Thank you to another dear friend, Beth, for this suggestion. https://www.amazon.com/Gifts-Imperfection-Think-Supposed-Embrace/dp/159285849X/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=the+gifts+of+imperfection&qid=1602555789&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzQUQzQzk0M0pJVFVZJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwOTgwNjg1M05XQVdFVVlTUlVXMCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwODYyNDg5N09HQjcwTUVBTlFRJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
Don’t forget that next week are our 99th and 100th show. Make sure you listen in for lots of special guests and shenanigans.
Until next time!
Today on How To Do Life, Chryssy and Heather are just shootin’ the breeze. The ladies haven’t seen one another in a few weeks, and it seemed like the best course of action was to just catch up with one another – and our listeners!
We’re contemplating a book club, if you like this idea and have book suggestions, drop us a line.
We talk about Chryssy’s trip. We talk about relationships. You’ll have to listen in to find out what else we talked about.
It was nice to do a show that was just a couple of friends going where the topics took us. Now that both Heather AND Chryssy are in their 40s, who knows that trouble may get stirred up around here. We are so happy to have our listeners along for the ride!
In this reunion show after Chrysssy's sojourn through the mountains of the American west, Heather welcomes her to the big 4-0 club with a fun glimpse back to life in 1980, an exploration of our astrological signs, the Florida Man birthday challenge, and advice from friends who have braved life over the hill and lived to tell about it. Oh, and banned books. It's fun!
Heather is still in charge and this time her guest co-host is Tallahassee celebrity Greg Tish.
Heather enjoys teasing him about his fame and is then dismayed to learn that they do not share taste in wedding reception music.
But, all is made better when Greg indulges her with a scandalous story of growing up in Tallahassee.
This is the perfect transition for Heather to test Greg's knowledge of Tallahassee trivia. Her dreams come true when she is able to stump him, and as a reward he shares his binder of Tallahassee facts, which has been sitting next to Heather in the studio this whole time without her knowledge.
Heather and Greg are now best friends.
Chryssy is off hiking so Brian is filling in for her, which Heather is excited about because she can finally prove to Chryssy that she is capable of being nice to Brian.
But first, we call Chryssy in Montana to hear about her adventures. She's seen foxes and lesbians and bears, oh my!
Then Heather does her best to be kind and welcoming to Brian, as they play a fun round of "Did This Happen." All of it happened, and Heather is very proud of her behavior.
Here's all of Heather's Headlines!
Who knows where Chryssy is? I’ll tell you who – no one. Not even Chryssy.
Today we try to give you a timeline of what’s been happening around the show, but it’s nearly impossible because we are actually way back in the past at time of recording.
Chryssy thought she was going to Portugal and then ended up unable to travel there. You will have to tune in next week to see where she ended up, if anywhere, or if she’s just sitting in the studio quietly watching Heather with her special guests.
Who are these special guests, you ask? Well Heather has asked Greg Tish, the morning show guru at our fabled 93.3 studios, to be her co-host for an episode next week. For the other episode next week, she’ll have Brian in as co-host. Chryssy is betting Heather makes him cry.
Chryssy is cantankerous today, and she goes on a real diatribe about what is now weeks old news for you, friends, but was fresh the day of recording. Captain America sent out a picture of his penis as Instagram accident / fail. Twitter’s response to this snafu may surprise you.
It’s really too bad we didn’t keep the audio commentary between Chryssy and Heather after the show, as we analyzed the dick pic heard round the web. We’re not going to share a link to it here, but it’s certainly not because we are worried about a dog lover’s anxiety.
Until next time.
Heather kicks off this episode with a Heather's Headline - are periods in text messages aggressive. The gals discuss kids these days.
And then it's time to celebrate FALL, Y'A::!
Today is the recap show, and we have a full house. Chryssy and Heather host Brian, as usual, but ALSO Chryssy’s sister Lisa makes a special guest appearance today.
Chryssy is punchy with all this love in the room. She razzes Producer Jon and gets really drunk on the power of managing her own Morning Zoo show for a day.
In the recap, we start with Brian telling us about his intense recurring childhood dream. We hope his family isn’t as bad as this dream makes them seem. Definitely listen in for this. We also talk about a childhood trauma Lisa went through, and how that showed up in her dreams for quite awhile after.
The team weighs the differences between back to school and back to online, and we make some decisions on which group is decidedly happier.
Brian comes up with some actual quality potential holidays. He’s really on point with this one. Then he very thoughtfully weighs in on polygamy. Listen closely for his disdain on some feedback Chryssy gave him recently concerning his show presence. It’s a shame there’s no video because it’s really great fun to watch him squirm when he’s on the spot.
Lisa gives the team some excellent advice on child-rearing through the teen years. There are just two words you need to know.
Everyone weighs in on whether it’s worth it to fight the good fight on social media. Reviews are mixed.
As if we haven’t done enough by this point, Heather gives us a fantastic rundown on some of adventures being had over on our other program “Heather Solves Everything.” Be sure to check out that show and all the other “How To Do” shows.
Until next time.
