GWYGH, Ep. 076: Top H8

GWYGH, Ep. 073: Earn the Chorus

Janine is going to be out of the country for the summer, so instead of sacrificing the trash for our lovely listeners, we have decided to do a series of micro-sodes, where we only have 7 1/2 minutes to talk about a topic of our choosing. Appropriately, the first topic is Hit-Clips, a digital audio player of the early 2000s that only played small clips from your favorite songs.

GWYGH, Ep. 072: Beamed Earworms

Janine was just minding her own business with a song so rudely entered her brain and then refused to leave: Uncle Kracker's Follow Me (2000), which has an utterly nonsensical music video which Kate hates.

If you have any suggestions for our upcoming episodes, please let us know @hatepodcast on Twitter! Thanks to Paul Ryberg of Plug-in Missing and The Minute Pod for our great theme song.

GWYGH, Ep. 071: Thanks for the Bean!

We have been on a bit of a hiatus and we know you missed us -- but it was for a good reason! Janine went up to Chicago to visit Kate for a few days and they got up to a lot of fun things. Seeing Janine's favorite movie BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER (1999) was a very special treat -- and the topic of this episode. Happy pride month to all of you! We love you!

GWYGH, Ep. 069.5: Bracelet Bylaws

No matter what decade it is, parents will always be scared and confused by the weird trends of their children and often come up with bizarre explanations for their behavior, sometimes even banning toys, fashion, or media because of its supposed connotations. One such moral panic was the jelly bracelet of the early 2000s, known by some concerned parents and news outlets as "sex bracelets." Janine and Kate discuss a variety of bracelet trends from the 2000s as well as their experiences with sex ed.

GWYGH, Ep. 069: Squirtle Sunglasses

Revving up for Detective Pikachu (2019) this weekend, Kate and Janine dip into the late 90s to discuss their favorite Pokemon movies, games, and starters.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 034: Autotune the Pod

Note: There is no autotuning in this podcast. We cannot autotune. We can, however, celebrate autotune and its impact on our meme culture! Janine and her cohost (the meme master herself, Kate) discuss AutoTune the News, the Bedroom Intruder Song, and future potential graduate degrees.

GWYGH, Ep. 034: Body as an Asset

For the final discussion on Shallow Hal (2001), Janine speaks to Ivy Snitzer, the woman who played the plus-size body double for Gwyneth Paltrow in the film as well as to Maggie McGill, a queer plus-size fashion blogger. Ivy shares her experiences on set and her role in the movie. Later on, as Maggie McGill joins the discussion, we all share our thoughts on the representation of plus-size people in the film and how, ultimately, things could have been a lot worse.

You can find Maggie McGill on Instagram @maggiemcgills and on Youtube at the following link: http://youtube.com/maggiemcgill .

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 033: Active Avoidance

For the first part of Janine's examination of Shallow Hal (2001), she speaks with Amanda Iman of Amanda's Picture Show A Go Go. Though Janine watched this film as a young, misguided chubby kid, Amanda avoided watching it because she was put off by its trailer. We peel back the complicated layers of a simplistic comedy and lay the ground work for next week's more in-depth episode which will feature a special voice from the cast of the film to give us more insight on Shallow Hal and whether or not it has a positive message.

You can find Amanda's Picture Show A Go Go and her other projects at www.amandaagogo.com and on social media @AmandasPicShow. Thanks to Paul Ryberg of Plug-in Missing and The Minute Pod for our awesome theme song!

Guess Who You're Gonna Punk?

All right, we’ve finally done it. We’ve caved and reviewed a 90s movie. That’s right, it’s a GWYGH first: The Mask (1994), because ultimately, trash is timeless.

You can find The VCR kids on all social media @TheVCRKids or on their website, TheVCRKids.com. Too bad Ashton Kutcher isn’t there to catch your reaction — cause you’ve been PUNK’D!!

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 032: My Beard is Fantastic

Kate and Janine discuss what was everyone's favorite hospital comedy television show: Scrubs! Listen to our glowing review: not the worst thing on TV. In fact, pretty good for 2007.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 031: Bad At Living

What do you do when you've amassed mostly useless knowledge of a decade of pop culture? Wipe the board at 2000s trivia, of course! Janine and Kate play a 2000s trivia card game and, once they get frustrated with it, have fun creating their own questions.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 030: Mii Eye Hurts

If you played video games in the 2000s, chances are you suffered from a Wiimote-related injury. Kate and Janine detail their Wii injuries (or Wiinjuries, if you will) as well as Kate's Wii championship title.

GWYGH, Ep. 032: Valentine Violence

Even if you're having the worst Valentine's day ever, at least you're not being chased by a pickaxe murder, right? Doyin from Pour Life Decision joins Janine to celebrate February 14th by watching My Bloody Valentine 3-D (2009), a slasher film so weak it hides behind its 3-D effects and hopes you will forgive it for a weak plot and bad acting. But when you're watching a 3-D movie on a 2-D screen at home, you cut right to the bloody heart in a box of chocolates: squishy, overdramatic, and certainly a waste of perfectly good sweets.
