“EpicEpicurean” with EpicLloyd

January 16, 2019

We get dark in the most light-hearted way with comedian Lloyd "EpicLloyd" Ahlquist ("Epic Rap Battles of History" on YouTube) as we dive into life, death, and how we humans get caught up in the Paradox of Choice. We chat with the self-described "Epicurean" about how men are like taxis, how Lloyd got duped by a psychic, and why Leah can never date a guy named "Ryan". In closing, Leah and Rachel give EpicLloyd (@theepiclloyd) a Goddess Oracle Card reading and the future is lookin' bright.

“The Angels and the A-List” with Santina Muha

December 12, 2018

Remember how we used to be able to watch a movie and *not* feel bad about being “unproductive”? Hilarious actor/writer Santina Muha tells us what she learned from being hospitalized for months as a kid: it’s okay to slow down and just color! Leah totally gets it ‘cuz rehab was like her summer camp. This episode is all about The Secret and the stars! From Santina crossing over and talking to God after a near-death accident, to manifesting meeting her #1 celebrity crush, to finding the parallels of fame and life in a wheelchair. In closing, Leah and Rachel give Santina (@santinamuha) a rare *TRIPLE* Goddess Oracle Card Reading you won’t believe yet can’t deny!

Note: Unbeknownst to us, we had a microphone issue so Rach is a little hard to hear, but we promise it is a good convo! Please still love us. Please? PLEEEEASE!!
