Episode #18 - GOBB (Good Ol' Bubble Buds)
Updated: Jan 1, 2021
This episode comes out in the final hours of 2020 (don't let the door hit you on the way out, year). Host BFFs explore the limits of the "Best Friend" title and delve into what it means to be non-romantic partners.
On this topic, Katie-Ellen references the 2020 book "Big Friendship" by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman.
What's your favourite name for your "Best People"?
Katie also illuminates Amitai on the American snack acronym GORP (Good Ol' Raisins and Peanuts) and on the 1980 movie of the same name. Below is that movie's truly unhinged trailer. Highly recommend.
The most notable take away from this film is that Fran Drescher is a stone cold fox and massive talent destined for the stardom she so earned.
Given the timing of the episode drop, Amitai and Katie-Ellen also dance with the ghost of New Year's Eves past - to various degrees of reverence. (Read to the end for a very silly/ultra horny Ami & Kate NYE memory).
What year end content is complete without a recap list? Not ones to thwart convention, your hosts round out the episode with a countdown of the Top 10 Horniest Things of 2020.
Top 10 Horniest Things of 2020
#10 - Fresh 2020 Day Planners
The special organizational tool you picked out specifically to stay on top of all your many commitments and engagements in 2020 that gathered dusk this year, just aching to be written in.
#9 - Zoom Theatre
Oooh, the palpable sexual tension of theatre artists who can't do contact improv or a massage train.
#8- Don't Worry About It
We skipped #8 for totally legitimate reasons and NOT because we're dough heads and Ami said "#7" so Katie read that one. There is a strategy here and it's important. :P
#7 - The Word "Unprecedented"
Not since the advent of adding "gate" to the end of scandals have copywriters been so horny for a word. If only there was a word to explain how the kind of horniness for a particular word like this had not happened previously.
#6 - Mail
A reminder that your horny hosts love to send mail. Drop us your address and we'll pop a card in the post box for you, or we'll send a note to a friend on your behalf. Feel free to let us know if there's a custom message you want.
#5 - Sleep Country Ad
Sleep Country wants you to know they get it. They're cool. They know what's up. Beds - not just for sleeping, if you know what we mean. Christine Magee, you lil minx.
#4 - People Who Don't Even Care About the Popular Thing But Need You to Know They Still Exist
Oh, you don't care at all about comic book movies/sports/award shows/whatever cultural event has temporarily taken over your social media feed for the day. A great way to not care about something is to shut the fuck up about it.
#3 - Listing the 1st Thing You're Going to Do Post Vaccine
What are you doing do when you get vaccinated?
#2 - Getting Off From the Covid-19 Swab Test
Welp, here we are at both the phrase "Nussy" (if that's not automatically clear for you I urge you not to linger on it) and also on us saying "Swab Me Daddy." Shrug Emoji. Full article here.
#1 - Starting a Podcast About Horny Stuff
Results are in. The number 1 horniest thing in 2020 is...starting a podcast about horny stuff. You're here. This is it. We did the most supremely horny thing a person can do. No regrets.
Sincerely, the opportunity to interact with y'all and in a tiny way feel like we're hanging out each week has been a true blessing this year. We hope we've brought some little laughs or comfort. You have certainly done that for us. Here's to a happy and healthy New Year and hopeful brighter days ahead in 2021.
As promised, from the archives, the horniest and most glorious New Year's Eve pic of your hosts as their best selves.
