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.

Thanks to Paul Ryberg of Plug-in Missing and The Minute Pod for our awesome theme! Consider supporting us on Patreon: Patreon.com/hatepodcast.

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!

Thanks to Paul Ryberg of Minute Pod and Plug-in Missing for our awesome theme song.

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.

Thanks to Paul Ryberg for the awesome theme song! Listen to his podcasts, The Minute Pod and Plug-in Missing.

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. 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. 027: Bling Ring

The only thing Kate loves more than torturing Janine with bad 2000s media is true crime. In today’s minisode, she discusses the Bling Ring crimes, where a group of teenagers targeted and robbed celebrities’ houses and were later rewarded with reality television and a movie. Who says crime doesn’t pay?

Big thank you, as always, to Paul Ryberg of Plug-in Missing for the amazing theme song. He’s the best! Check out their podcast at pluginmissing.com !

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 026: Sleepy Corn

Kate and Janine discuss facts about Chuck Norris. They're not worried about being called out about their veracity because Chuck Norris doesn't listen to podcasts. As soon as two white guys buy a microphone, Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks them in the face.

Thank you to Paul Ryberg from Plug-in Missing for our awesome theme song!

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 019: Pod of Love

Long before dating show contestants could use their instagram fame to sell detox tea, there was a certain purity to the craziness framed by shows such as Rock of Love. Liz from Bloody Date Night joins Janine to talk about some of her favorite moments from 2000s dating shows.

GWYGH, Ep. 004: Hostile Work Environment

In the very first episode of 2018, Janine and Kate discuss the absolute plethora of early 2000s media centering around romance in the White House as they consider their hardest decision yet: whether to watch First Daughter (2004) or Chasing Liberty (2004), two movies that are nearly identical in plot.
