Episode 44 – Death and Other Misadventures

 

[Content note: death, cancer, foster care]

Dear Listener,

Returning from their quest, our heroes sit in the flickering light of the fire and ponder – has this ordeal changed them? What is the meaning of life? Why are birds so darn cheeky?

Episode 39 – Movie Night

[Content Note: vulgar language, sexual themes]

Dear Listener,

This week’s podcast was a roller coaster ride of emotions. A bit of anger, fear and disgust, with a lot of joy and sadness. While we both grew as people and became more mature, we left part of our younger self behind.

Join us on this powerful journey,

Tash and PantslessJam

Episode 38 – Waiting

[Content Note: Vulgar language, sexual themes, guns]

 

Dear Listener,

… This week Tash and PantslessJam had a joint brain-fart and decided to do an episode on “waiting”. What follows in an epic battle as our heroes do their best to fight against the tough conditions to bring you an entertaining podcast. As usual, they failed. But there is beauty in their defeat.

Never learnt their history, so doomed to repeat their mistakes,

Tash and PanstlessJam

Episode 34 – The Broken Boy, Part II

[Content note: vulgar language, sexual themes, mental illness]

Dear Listener,

This week you hear all about the gold that is at the end of the rainbow. All you have to do is trap the leprechaun at your feet. And maybe a little dance. Yes, definitely do a little dance.

All the best,

Tash and PantslessJam.

Episode 33 – The Broken Boy, Part I

[Content Note: Vulgar language, sexual themes, mental illness, child abuse, psychology, injuries]

 

Dear Listener,

 
This week we chat about the Mayor of Crazytown (i.e. psychologists and counsellors) and Tash’s experiences of them. Nominally we were supposed to be talking about Jam and his issues, but Tash hogged the limelight.

 

Probably we’ll do a Part II to check in on Jam and see how he’s going, but only if he’s very very good.

 

Check ya later,

 

Tash and PantslessJam

Episode 19 – Gifts, Holiday Food, and Whining

[Content note: vulgar language, sexual themes, mental illness, poor sound quality]

Dear Listener,

In this exciting episode, our heroes, Tash and PantslessJam, meander through some holiday topics. While the energy was low, the insight… was also low. Indeed, there’s not much to recommend this episode, but you never know. Out of something that might seem objectively terrible, you may find the love of your life. We know that Tash did.

Here’s to your holidays going well, or at least being short.

Tash and PantslessJam

P.S. Here is Tash’s recipe for Bailey’s Balls (or Rum Balls if you insist on tradition):

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Nice biscuits
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • a few tablespoons of cocoa
  • a few tablespoons of Bailey’s
  • 1 additional cup of coconut for rolling

Method

  • Crush up your biscuits (I find a big bowl and the end of a rolling pin to be the way to go)
  • Throw in your booze, condensed milk, cocoa and the first cup of coconut
  • Mix it all up
  • Pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes or so to harden up a bit
  • Get out 2 plates: one for your second cup of coconut and one for the finished balls
  • Grab about a big teaspoon of mixture, roll it into a ball in your hands, then roll it in the coconut to coat it
  • Boom, you’re done! Repeat for the rest of the mixture.

*I don’t know where this recipe came from – probably a magazine or such like once upon a time. It’s a fairly common one and I do not claim ownership*

Episode 18 – The Holidays are Coming!

[Content note: sexual themes, coarse language, mental illness]

Dear Listener,

Sex sex sex! This week we don’t talk sex. Not once. Okay maybe once. We forget what we said.

Cheerio,

Tash and PantslessJam.

P.S. Can you tell the difference?

Episode 16 – Illness

[Content note: vulgar language, sexual themes, sickness, injury]

Dear Listener,

This episode is pretty sick! Tash has been struck down by Labyrinthitis. Putting our holiday plans on pause, we’re both happy to auditorily visit you again, our most precious listener.

Interestingly, we didn’t mention Ebola. It strikes us as a missed opportunity. We could have joked that Tash has Ebola (that she was the bell of Ebola).

We also didn’t get to talk about PantslessJam’s favourite topic – the moral culpability of getting others sick. While it is incredibly boring to listen to, his rant is along the lines of: the moral culpability usually attaches to the person who was sick and “gave” it to the new person. But, assuming that the sick person didn’t cough on the new person or intentionally spread their illness, the sick person’s only fault was getting sick – something that… see this is boring.

Anyway, you can listen to what we did talk about!

Kind regards,

Tash and PantslessJam

Episode 12 – Anxiety

[Content note: sexual themes, vulgar language, discussion of mental illness, anxiety, panic]

Dear Listener,

This week we discuss fear… no, stress… no, anxiety—we’re pretty sure it’s anxiety. The thing about anxiety is that it can be pretty tricky to identify. We know right now your heart is beating fast, your loins are alight, but these are not symptoms of anxiety. No, you are just writhing in anticipation at the thought of hearing this next instalment of Heaps Funny But. And who could blame you?

Not us,

Tash and PanstlessJam.
