Episode 41 – Kitchen Talk

[Content note: vulgar language, sexual themes]

 

Dear Listener,

We are deep thinkers, you know that. But sometimes, in the depths of the night when the horrors that lurk in shadowy places crowd the corners above weary heads, I wonder — have we delved too deep?

And what would my workplace crush think of that?

 

Until the next time, we remain

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 32 – The Artful Podcasters

[Content Note: vulgar language, sexual themes, domestic violence]

Dear Listener,

There’s a fork in the road. Which path do you choose? The one heading to your destination, or the one that goes nowhere?

Here’s what happens when you make the latter choice.

Salutations and good byes,

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.

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 5 – Tweeeets from the Fuuutuuuuuuuuure

[Content note:  vulgar language, sexual themes, death of animals]

Dear Listener,

This week we’ve answered YOUR questions! You may not have thought of them yet, but we did all that tough thinking work for you.

If you’re interested in learning more about the use of ‘youse’ in English, this link would be a toats good place to start.1 Other topics we touched upon in a very cursory sort of way include:

And as always, if you have any interesting sources/corrections/thoughts/ideas, let us know!

à bientôt,

Tash and PantslessJam

P.s. On the theme of answering questions, you may have noticed that we’ve updated our FAQs! Think we’ve missed anything? Let us know in the comments.

1. Tash also promised reputable research. There are a huge number of academic and scholarly works which look at plurality and pronouns in English, such as: Raymond Hickey (ed.) Legacies of Colonial English, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004; or this book by Diana Eades

Episode 3 – Food

 

[Content note: vulgar language, sexual themes, self harm]

Dear Listener,

They say third time’s the charm; they also you you can’t trust a man with two first names; so ‘they’ are clearly morons. But even a broken clock is right twice a day (well, once in twenty-four hour time). And maybe, just maybe those morons are right about our third time out.

In any case, we are excited for this topic: food, a subject near and dear to our hearts. In PantslessJam’s case, only the cholesterol part of food is near his heart, the calories are around his waist and vitamins in his bright blue eyes. But we both have a passion for food. So sit down and tuck in to a big helping of ‘Heaps Funny But’.

See you next time,

Tash and PantslessJam.
