Amanda’s new medication has taken away her ability to cry, Nate’s housemate is afraid of burglars, and Leah rents a pontoon boat in effort to save her relationship from springing a long-distance leak. Also, a special message about what’s next for The Nervous Record.
This mini-episode takes us back to July 2017, before The Nervous Record was the well-oiled machine it is today. In their inaugural recording Amanda and Leah get things up and running.
Body talk turns body balk as we discuss ‘body positive’ advertising directed towards women. Leah suspects the whereabouts of Edward Snowden. And the latest news about girdles!
Things get crazy when Amanda wakes up next to a topless woman in bed. Also, Leah talks solstice rituals and the psychology behind why monkeys like porn.
Lots of crazy things go on in Leah’s head–but a moth dying in her ear canal definitely takes the cake. For it’s 3rd anniversary, Leah recounts the night she survived a jungle nightmare without tweezers or valium. Also, Amanda and Cordelia celebrate Pride Month.
Break out the vodka and/or grape juice. The Nervous Record gets graphic on the anniversary of Leah’s failed marriage. Murder! Animal Testing! Sex jargon! Pre-teen angst! Guess which one of those subjects makes Amanda cry…
