Perhaps the ladies should have spent this landmark episode with a review of their favorite moments. Maybe they should have created a contest, or at least utilized their new character / guest Hot Brian for the intended purpose of his addition, which was to recap some of the topics from the last month.
But, Chryseather fans, what ensued is indeed what often ensues on the Chryssy and Heather Show, our faithful hosts just talked about what was on their minds.
Chryssy hosts today, a term she uses loosely for this episode. She introduces us to her friend Hot Brian, who will – once a month – join the ladies to add some guy perspective to the show.
Chryssy declared proudly that she didn’t want to talk about the coronavirus, but she wanted to bring a new topic this week. She had grand, though unhatched, plans for this episode in which there would be robust discussion surrounding art’s ability to lessen pain. She wanted to bring several examples of levity through the art of stand-up comedy, urging you to check out Neal Brennan and Daniel Sloss (both available on Netflix, Sloss’ most recent show, X, is available on HBO).
She’d also planned to take a spin into music, and how music can make hard things easier. The plan was to point you to the Enimen / Ed Sheeran collaboration “River,” but the show never quite got there!
And that’s because we took a spin into what was more interesting for our cohort today! We glossed over the silly – how we organize the home pages of our cell phones – and the serious – how we use humor to deflect from insecurity, and how past hurts shape who we are today.
And somehow, it was just a fun conversation. We hope you enjoy it. And we hope you’re around for the next 50.
Until next time.
