Resting Bitchfest

Kris and Kym Old Orange
Kris must have said something off color but Kym clearly doesn’t mind at all.

Kym and Kris and Dog!

HEY HI!! How was your week? Was it as “interesting” as ours?? Have you been stressing out? Ready to throw in the towel?  Pretty much think people suck? You need to just let it all out??? Ok. THIS is the perfect episode for YOU! You NEED to listen because HONEY we are right there with you. Kris comes in pretty damned hot, Kym is in all kinds of pain (mostly because she’s cramping AND she tucked and rolled during a walk in the park), and we cannot BELIEVE we have even more traffic stories, including guys who drive around pregnant women in the crosswalk for a bagel, guys who park in no-parking spots, guys who honk the second the light turns green, women driving while reading….Wait. Who are we kidding. This is Southern California. We could have a podcast ranting ONLY about traffic every single day.

By the way, have you seen the meme where someone zip-ties shopping carts to a car’s door handle in the grocery store parking lot? INSPIRING.


We also talk(bitch) about gaining weight, crappy Fitbits, the pain of getting back to the gym, and then before you know it, we mention a dog story and BOOM! Just like in real life where we’re walking down the street deep in conversation, as soon as a dog comes into the picture we STOP! We FORGET EVERYTHING! We see, hear, and speak nothing but PUPPYPUPPYPUPPY and go absofreakinglutley gaga over dogs.

But wait! (Again) There’s MORE! This is our lucky number 13 episode! We don’t talk about that, but we thought we’d mention it here.

We share our Mom of the Year Stories about teaching our daughters how to burp nowhere near like little ladies, PLUS we have a Grandpa Joke AND a Grandpa Fart Story.

Captain Looseass to the rescue!

BURPING AND FARTING. Fellas, it’s alllll about making up for the cramps story. You’re welcome.

And just like that it all settles…it all calms…and all of a sudden…we are all about the Namaste.

Oh and by the way, Elon Musk, do we have an idea for YOU!!! 

So lookie-here friends. We are here for you. If our misery helps you feel not so alone…if our pain brings a smile to your face…if our bitchfest makes you LOL…WHAT THE HELLNATION IS WRONG WITH YOU?

I mean…our job is done for another week!! And hey, we prove that in the end, it all works out and life is pretty great.

Episode 01: Ctrl+Alt+WTF?


Welcome to Episode 01 of The Mugly Truth Podcast! This week we fuel up on coffee and technology. From the 70’s to present day, we reminisce about troubleshooting rogue cassettes, the right way to return a mixtape, disco, OG texting (aka passing notes), rabbit ear antennas, recording movies in the seventies, changing channels the old fashioned way, landlines and the real MTV. Jumping back to the future we cover all things social media (YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat (STREAKS!), moms using cellphones, teenagers, Netflix, viral videos (Chewbacca Lady! I Don’t Watch The News Because I’m A Kid Kid!), tech spies conspiracy theories, self-driving cars (NOPE), Uber Air (NOPE NOPE), the kind of people who jump in elevators, podcasting, and even the Chunnel makes a guest appearance (one ginormous NOPE from Kym, two non-sarcastic thumbs up from Kris) . It’s literally gonna make you go HmmmmCtrl+Alt+WTF?

Special thanks to Paul Wilborn who helped us test our equipment, and even had us on HIS podcast (see Episode 21 The Mugly Truth on his podcast page at http://www.havingbeerswith.com/ ). If you like beer, hockey, baseball, or The American Wake, check out Paul’s podcast Having Beers With!

So grab your coffee and get comfy in your chair. Put on your headphones; kick the kids out of the room; turn down the volume on your work computer or turn it up in your car – because the swear jar goes into overdrive (we made over $2 in our swear-funding for equipment upgrades).

Let’s talk The Mugly Truth about TECHNOLOGY!
