GWYGH, Ep. 078: Hot Mess

Did you know that the hit song Mr. Brightside by The Killers has stayed on the Top 100 charts in the UK since its release in 2004? Kate and Janine revisit the band's debut album Hot Fuss (2004), including creating the definitive ranking of songs from Bop Lite to Bopgasm. Don't miss another installment of Janine's embarrassing middle school memories!

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:

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, 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. 028: Gyrating on Screen

Kate once developed a fixation on the music video for Lady Marmalade (2001), so of course she had to discuss it with Janine. A tie-in for the Moulin Rouge (2001) movie, this remake of the classic 1974 Labelle hit features the musical talents of Pink, Mya, Lil Kim, and Christina Aguilera.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 024: Dust Belt

How do you get those designer shoes you've been eyeing but you can't afford? Simple: slap some dirt on your kid and send 'em off to the department store! If you don't give in to a child's demands, you're a heartless monster. Kate introduces Janine to a morbid, overwrought holiday song: Christmas Shoes by New 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. 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": 

You can find Michelle's projects at, 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.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 006: No Headphones On

Remember when you'd all crowd around a computer while someone made you watch their YouTube playlist of funny videos? Chances are that a song or two from The Lonely Island graced that experience. Our guest Charis Dillon discusses SNL Digital Shorts of the 2000s as well as some of The Lonely Island's top hits. Be sure to check out the full show notes for links on our website!
