Swimming! Camp! Pool food! Sunburn! Magazines! This week, Biz and Theresa reminisce about our own childhood summers and make excuses for not giving our kids perfect summertime experiences. Plus, Biz fesses up to co-sleeping with her baby and Theresa is grateful for city parks because she is losing her mother-loving MIND at home with her babies. And, we chat with Amy Vansant about her new book, the best-selling humor anthology Moms Are Nuts, which is entertaining and cathartic for moms and non-moms alike!

Throwing Shade

Diana Ross and the Supreme Court have really outdone themselves this time. America's most crafty "family" business no longer has to pay for employees' birth control. Congrats, nobody! But it all gets temporarily better because the incredibly handsome and talented Rhett Miller  (@rhettmiller) of the Old 97s stops by to talk about how he saw Axl Rose wear a mumu while getting a foot massage and also to serenade us with a song. Check out his album here

Throwing Shade #50: Hobby Lobby and Musical Guest Rhett Miller

| 0 comments

Erin & Bryan went to a Robyn concert and they’ve got the mullets to prove it! Too bad the Supreme Court is ruining everything by letting Hobby Lobby (Mrs. Lobby if you’re nasty) refuse to pay for its employees’ birth control. It’s a good thing we have guest Rhett Miller to serenade us with a song and help us forget our troubles.

In the fall of 2001, Phil Elverum released the album The Glow, Pt 2 on K Records. Pitchfork named it the best album of the year. In this episode, Phil recounts how he created the first song on the record at Dub Narcotic Studio. He spoke with me from his home in Anacortes, Washington, about his love of being alone in the studio, evoking nature through music, and where the name The Microphones comes from. Plus a few words from Calvin Johnson, the founder of K Records. This episode is presented in conjunction with The Creators Project.
