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.

Thanks as always to Paul Ryberg for our theme song. Check out his podcasts, Minute Pod and Plug-in Missing!

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. 020: No Vampires Allowed

Kate and Janine live off garlic so they are definitely not vampires. However, they can still appreciate the aesthetic of goths in coffins -- and what better way to do that than to watch the music video for Helena by My Chemical Romance? Tell us your favorite 2000s music video by tweeting us @hatepodcast!

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.

You can find Bloody Date Night by visiting their website (http://theatlantictransmission.com/podcast/bloody-date-night/) or anywhere on social media: @BloodyDateNight !

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 018: Harry Potter and the Trash Content Always

Having met on a Harry Potter subforum way back in 2007, Kate and Janine are both long-time members of the HP fandom. While this minisode's original topic was Harry Potter midnight release parties, we quickly discuss some of our own run-ins with unsavory parts of Harry Potter fandom, including an online stalker and people yelling spoilers out of passing cars.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 013: McMansion Hell

Imagine, if you will, that it's 2002 and you have no monetary limits or guidelines to building your dream house. Would you look to build a house that was perfect for your family's space needs? Or would you want to combine all your favorite design elements from centuries of agriculture, tossing simplicity and usability to the wind? Kate Wagner joins Janine to discuss how media like Cribs (2000) and The Simple Life (2003) combined with the suburban paranoia to shape housing trends in the 2000s. 

Kate is the author behind the viral blog McMansion Hell (www.mcmansionhell.com). Additionally, they contribute to Curbed, Atlas Obscura, and 99 Percent Invisible. Find them on Twitter: @mcmansionhell.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 012: Bring On Teenage Angst Records

We all have our favorite albums from our teenage years. Some of us are fortunate enough to have gone through our music exploring phase in the early 2000s, where you often heard of new albums through whispers on music forums and had to seek it out through LimeWire, Kazaa, or other means. Michelle Nickolaisen introduces Janine to BOTAR (Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution), whose 2001 album "A Call to Arms" remains one of her favorites. 

Listen to "A Call to Arms": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPefIzoSn-A 

You can find Michelle's projects at www.michellenickolaisen.com, including Unplaced, an audio drama about a woman who wakes up one day to find no one can see or hear her and everyone she knows is forgetting about her. Help with funding season two on IndieGoGo at igg.me/at/unplaced. Don't forget to check out Serendipity City, an alt-1920s actual play podcast, also found at  www.serendipitypod.com

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 011: Epcot as a PvP Zone

Renee Rhodes from Fate and the Fablemaidens joins Janine and Kate to discuss the Kingdom Hearts series as well as how the storytelling of the video games we grow up with can impact our creative process as adults. Kate recounts renting the game from Blockbuster, Janine reminisces about minivans with tv screens, and Renee explains how she finally beat Kingdom Hearts as an adult. We also than our families for all the embarrassing music they tolerated during our teenage music exploration. Let's hope that the anticipated Kingdom Hearts 3 is everything we've been waiting for! 

Check out Fate and the Fablemaidens, an actual-play, biweekly D&D podcast created by four friends who love goofs and games. https://fatefmcast.com/

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 010: Keeping Up With the Bluths

This is the story of a co-host who lost out on 2000s pop culture and the podcast that had no choice but to produce trash content always. Daniel Spencer from Subverted Tropes joins Janine to discuss Arrested Development in anticipation of its 5th season being released later this month. We discuss our favorite gags, the unique nature of this smart comedy, and our hopes for the future.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 009: Milkshakes Gone Wild

In Episode 3 of the Simple Life, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie work at a Sonic Drive-In. Is this perhaps the best episode of the series so far? You know it is! Kate delights in their antics when dressed as Sonic mascots while Janine tries to determine which of these girls is the more malicious one. Best listened to when drinking an Ocean Water.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 008: In the Year 2000...

Dear 2000, 

We have looked over your top 100 hits and your movie releases and have concluded that you had a lot of truly terrible media. 

However, we owe you a lot. We couldn't have this podcast without you. 

We hope to do you proud, 2000. Thank you for providing us with a decade full of terrible movies and music for us to mock (and sometimes, guiltily, enjoy). 

We'd be nothing without you. 

With mixed emotions, 
Janine and Kate
Hosts of Guess What You're Gonna Hate?

PS: Great job for having Smooth by Santana ft. Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20 on the charts for 38 weeks.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 006: Thanks for the Meme-ories
