Thanks, y'all!

00:00:01 - Jenny GK
Let's get down to business, because it's Tuesday.

00:00:10 - Caitlin Kindred
So you know that's Donnie Osmond singing that song.

00:00:13 - Jenny GK
Okay? So my intro for you is that you're the Marie to my tattie yay. Yes. That's so good.

00:00:25 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, my gosh, you guys, it's Tuesday. We're so glad you're here. I thought that this was the first episode of season three, and it's not.

00:00:36 - Jenny GK
It's the second 1. Second one.

00:00:40 - Caitlin Kindred
This is episode 82. It even says in the notes this is episode 81. No, it's not. It's 82 80. And we're in our third season of this show. I cannot believe it. Okay, today we're playing a game, and we're going to see what our favorite things, like events, pop culture, sports, entertainment things were from summer 2023, but also we're trying to see if we have something that's on each other's list. Basically, it's how well does Jenny know Caitlin? And Caitlin has no idea what Jenny is going to be into because her interests are all over the place.

00:01:16 - Jenny GK
I tried to rein it in. I really did, because if the object of the game is for me to pick the same things that you would have, I had to be a little bit more normal than I would normally be.

00:01:28 - Caitlin Kindred
No Excel Olympics this time.

00:01:32 - Jenny GK
Right. Or extreme ironing. Right? Yeah.

00:01:36 - Caitlin Kindred
I wouldn't even know where to go to find that stuff, so I had to be normal. But I'm going to introduce you. If I'm your Marie, you're going to be my naively, goofy jellyfish. Because you love your fish tank and because why not, right? Yeah. That's Jenny, everyone. I'm Caitlin. That's Jenny. And let's do some catching.

00:01:58 - Jenny GK
Okay. Yeah.

00:01:59 - Caitlin Kindred

00:02:00 - Jenny GK
So you know that every once in a while, I kind of get a fixation and go on a deep dive about something.

00:02:07 - Caitlin Kindred
Hello, ADHD. It's nice to see you.

00:02:11 - Jenny GK
So let me tell you what I'm obsessed with right now and cannot stop learning about, and there's not that much information because it's very exclusive.

00:02:19 - Caitlin Kindred

00:02:21 - Jenny GK
The world residential yacht. It is a cruise ship that you can live on. You have to have a net worth of $10 million to even be invited to buy an apartment on this boat.

00:02:36 - Caitlin Kindred
Well, shoot, I guess I'm out then, right?

00:02:39 - Jenny GK
They go in price from 3 million to 10 million each. And Oprah wanted to live on the boat, and they said no because she's too famous and they didn't want to attract attention. It is a cruise ship that you live on. It travels around the world every year. Three times a year, they go to these extreme locations like the Galapagos or Antarctica or, like, the Seychelles or whatever.

00:03:08 - Caitlin Kindred
How can a yacht get down to Antarctica?

00:03:11 - Jenny GK
Aren't there, like dude, I mean, it's a yacht. It's a yacht in air quotes, but it is like a cruise ship. It has a full size tennis court on it. What?

00:03:24 - Caitlin Kindred

00:03:25 - Jenny GK
What is this, nuts? And there's, like, a couple of videos on YouTube that are, like, two or three minutes that are advertisements for it, but for the most part, there's no documentaries or anything about it. I am obsessed with finding information about this boat.

00:03:41 - Caitlin Kindred
Ship. Yeah. This is, like, some illuminati mess.

00:03:45 - Jenny GK
Oh, my God, I want to live on it so bad.

00:03:48 - Caitlin Kindred
My gosh. Yeah, I'm sure you do.

00:03:53 - Jenny GK
I was looking at the itineraries of the past and just, like, combing the website. I love it. The world.

00:04:03 - Caitlin Kindred
Residential yacht.

00:04:06 - Jenny GK
Residential yacht.

00:04:07 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay. Hilarious and wild. Mine is so boring compared to that. So boring. Are you ready?

00:04:15 - Jenny GK
I'm ready.

00:04:17 - Caitlin Kindred
You've been to Trader Joe's. Everyone knows they have everything but the bagel seasoning. And for the record, if you haven't tried it, you need to try it, and it's delicious on avocado toast.

00:04:27 - Jenny GK
And if you do not have Trader Joe's money, it's at HEB.

00:04:33 - Caitlin Kindred
Yes, it is at HEB.

00:04:35 - Jenny GK
I have the knockoff at my house.

00:04:37 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay. Yeah. Did you know that Trader Joe's has this mix on cashews and almonds already done for you? Okay. Now I do have the bagel because.

00:04:49 - Jenny GK
I'm going to go buy those.

00:04:50 - Caitlin Kindred
Right. Everything but the bagel seasoning on cashews and almonds.

00:04:54 - Jenny GK
That sounds amazing.

00:04:56 - Caitlin Kindred
It was so good. I found them. When did I find them? I think it was when I was in Philly, and I just needed snacks or something, and I figured, oh, well, it's an almond. It's cashews. Like, it's not just, like, sugar, right. Except it's in moderate of it's. So it's salty, but it's so good. And I had, like, seeds all up in my teeth, and I didn't even care. I was just like, hey, this is so good. Don't care. Just munching away. Oh, my gosh. So good. I'm obsessed. I haven't let myself go back and get another bag, but it's coming. I'm really excited when school starts and I have more time to run errands during the day because I have the full day. I'm going to go up to Trader Joe's.

00:05:40 - Jenny GK
I'm so happy you're in your late 30s without telling me. In your late 30s. I'm so excited to get a new bag of nuts with everything but the bagel seasoning on them.

00:05:52 - Caitlin Kindred
Listen, we established a long time ago that I have a favorite, like, oven burner. This is just right tracking behavior. Right? Like, whatever, but it's really good. So if you like Trader Joe's snacks and you haven't found those yet, go get them. They're delicious. Okay, we're going to change it up. I got to go first because this story is so nuts, and it made me laugh for a solid probably three minutes. Okay, so here's what happened. Last week, I get a phone call, and it's, Jenny, I don't know about you, but I've reached the point in my life where when certain people call, it's because something happened, right? If my mother calls me, it's not a FaceTime, it's a call. Something's wrong if my dad calls me. Depends on the time of day, but if it's midday, something's wrong. So there are some people that that's just triggering. Right? So when you call, I know you don't do it most of the time because, you know, as teachers do, text to right. As teachers do, we text when we can, and then we talk later. And you and I will usually say, phone call later. Let's talk later. Okay. So I answer the phone and I'm like, what's up? Is everything okay? First thing comes out of my mouth, right? The first thing you said to me is, you know, I only call you when it's important, which is true. Right. Do you want to go to the Jenny Loggins concert on Saturday?

00:07:20 - Jenny GK
My favorite part of that was for a solid 30 to 45 seconds, it was just you laughing.

00:07:29 - Caitlin Kindred
And then you.

00:07:30 - Jenny GK
Come back with, I thought Kit was in the hospital.

00:07:36 - Caitlin Kindred
It was so it was so random. I really went from, like I did a full 180 on the scared to not scared, pendulum, whatever thing.

00:07:51 - Jenny GK
Still plenty of adrenaline in your system, though, right?

00:07:55 - Caitlin Kindred
Doubled over, hysterical laughing. I went to my husband and I was like, well, what's going on? We might have my mother in law's birthday. We didn't know what was happening, so we were just like, well, let's hold off on anything. He goes, where did they even figure this out, that he was coming? And I was like, you know what they did? They looked up a what's happening in Austin? Calendar and they saw that he was here. And so that's what they did. They just went, all right, we're just going to go because why not? Why not? It's Jenny Loggins. You're going to listen to Danger Zone live in a bajillion degree heat?

00:08:27 - Jenny GK
Sure, why not?

00:08:29 - Caitlin Kindred
It's $20.

00:08:31 - Jenny GK
The tickets were $20. Well, I will tell you, we splurged and for 35 sat in chairs instead.

00:08:40 - Caitlin Kindred
Of on the wall. I don't know what's worse, because in the chair, with how hot it was, you might have had, like, sweaty legs and stuff. I would have brought a towel because it's just gross. But oh, my there was a chick.

00:08:50 - Jenny GK
On my row who did bring a towel, and she was sitting on her towel on her chair. Yeah.

00:08:55 - Caitlin Kindred
I would have really smart. Made me laugh so hard.

00:08:58 - Jenny GK
Oh, my gosh. It was super great. The opening act is Yacht Rock Review, which is like this Spasmatics esque themed tribute band, right?

00:09:10 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah, of course.

00:09:12 - Jenny GK
So they play all the yacht rock hits. In fact, I sent you the video.

00:09:17 - Caitlin Kindred
Of Toto Africa favorite song ever. So good.

00:09:22 - Jenny GK
They killed it. They played all the bangers.

00:09:26 - Caitlin Kindred
All the yacht rock bangers.

00:09:28 - Jenny GK

00:09:29 - Caitlin Kindred
If we still named our episodes after weird things that we said during the show, it would definitely be called Yacht Rock Bangers.

00:09:37 - Jenny GK
Oh, my goodness. Okay, so, John's, like, do you think that they started this band because they really like this music or because they think it's a financial decision. This is like a niche band that they can make money off all these people who love this music. Oh, man, look, they're having fun up there. They're wearing costumes. Surely they love this music. So I go to their website and I read their history. They were a different band. And then one night at a club, they decided to do an all yacht rock show, Tongue in Cheek. The crowd loved it, and the club owner paid them more to come back if they only did the Yacht Rock. So it was totally a financial decision. And they even said the club owner had an ace up his sleeve money. Yes.

00:10:26 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, my gosh. How embarrassing and sad and hilarious.

00:10:33 - Jenny GK
So John has a provision in his life insurance. Legally, the first people that have to be paid out of life insurance are the funeral home and then medical bills, right?

00:10:44 - Caitlin Kindred

00:10:45 - Jenny GK
But the next amount of money that needs to be paid out of his life insurance is to have the Foo Fighters play at his funeral.

00:10:52 - Caitlin Kindred

00:10:53 - Jenny GK
So I turned to John and I said, I want Yacht Rock Review to play at Mine. And they have to close with She's Gone. You didn't.

00:11:07 - Caitlin Kindred
That's so bad. I am doubled over again.

00:11:15 - Jenny GK
It was so great. Okay, so Jenny Loggins is 75. And besides the fact that it was 195 degrees outside and it was definitely getting to him, I mean, he said it multiple times. He's like, I need more water. He's sitting down. Like, you could tell the heat was getting him.

00:11:28 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, man. Awesome.

00:11:29 - Jenny GK
And he's from, like, Santa Barbara or somewhere with gorgeous weather.

00:11:32 - Caitlin Kindred

00:11:33 - Jenny GK
But other than that, it was super great. He played everything I wanted him to play. He told the story behind different songs, and then he closed with a movie theme medley. Yeah, right, because he has done the theme to Caddyshack, to Top Gun, and to so he plays them all in a row.

00:12:00 - Caitlin Kindred
So when I'm talking to Bryce about this concert, he's like, so what are we going to listen to? And I was like he's like, okay, that's Caddyshack, but the others. And I was like, what are you talking about? Top Gun? You love that movie. And he's like, yeah, but footloose. And I was like, you shut your dirty mouth right now. You do not get to say anything bad about Footloots, ever. I don't care how much you dislike musicals, just don't say a word. You don't get to say anything. But they're all so good and those songs are so iconic. They definitely go with the movie. It was perfect. It was funny.

00:12:35 - Jenny GK
He knew what we were there for and he just did it at the end.

00:12:39 - Caitlin Kindred
Right, exactly.

00:12:40 - Jenny GK
He made you stay for the whole thing. I saw Little Texas many years ago at the Bell County Expo Center. Even when they started the show, it was good evening, Central Texas. They don't even know the name of the town they're in. And I'm not kidding you, there were 250 people there, baby.

00:13:07 - Caitlin Kindred
Right? Of course. Yeah.

00:13:09 - Jenny GK
And one guy in the back is screaming, do, God bless Texas. Do, God bless Texas. And I'm not kidding you, the lead singer says, into the mic, dude, we're going to do it last. That's our hit, right? Ford is the best in Texas. That's why you're here. We'll play it at the end.

00:13:30 - Caitlin Kindred
We got you, right? Go get a beer. Come on back. Stand in the line. It's fine. No worries. Oh, my goodness. How funny. Good for him, man. Keeping the crowd there. Well done. Well done. Jenny, impressed. Proud of you. Oh, man.

00:13:47 - Jenny GK
Also, something that happened to me this week totally not related to Jenny. My computer had all kinds of issues. Okay.

00:13:56 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, like Jenny in South Park, right?

00:13:58 - Jenny GK

00:13:59 - Caitlin Kindred
There's your tie in. You're welcome, Segue. Thank you.

00:14:02 - Jenny GK
Thank you. You're welcome, Segue. First off, like, my mouse didn't exist anymore. Then after I got that fixed, my Bluetooth didn't exist. And it was like a whole lot of installing and uninstalling and blah, blah. Well, here is the thing that has happened since all of those problems are solved.

00:14:18 - Caitlin Kindred

00:14:19 - Jenny GK
I am very happy with my computer. It is working the way it's supposed to.

00:14:23 - Caitlin Kindred

00:14:23 - Jenny GK
Except it now thinks it's in India.

00:14:26 - Caitlin Kindred
No. Oh, no.

00:14:28 - Jenny GK
Let me tell you about how funny the Google results are when you're searching news stories for summer 2023.

00:14:37 - Caitlin Kindred
You can't fix that. You can't fix it in the settings or anything.

00:14:41 - Jenny GK
I went through and changed the default location back to Cedar Park, but it was really funny. When I'm searching, I'm like, why are all these news stories about India? Oh, my computer thinks it's where tech support was.

00:14:53 - Caitlin Kindred
Right. Exactly. Did someone have to dial into your computer and do uh huh. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Oh, dear. I'm glad your computer's fixed, because that's a nightmare. Usually I'm just like, throw it out. Give me a new one. This one's broken. I need a new one. All right.

00:15:11 - Jenny GK
Should we take a break?

00:15:12 - Caitlin Kindred
We should. Okay, bye bye.

00:15:17 - Jenny GK
Welcome back. We're here, as we teased earlier, we are going to share our favorite entertainment news stories from the summer. And try and guess what Caitlin's favorite news stories were from the summer, and my favorite news stories were from the summer.

00:15:35 - Caitlin Kindred
So this is, to be clear news. There's no politics in no for me. There's no economic this is all human interest, sports, entertainment, and other stupid stuff. Okay, great.

00:15:47 - Jenny GK
I kept it to that. Okay, now, the rules of the game, because first it was like, oh, we could play bingo. And then it was hard to do. Like, how are we going to make the bingo work? And if you have an idea, please send it in. We'll use it again.

00:15:59 - Caitlin Kindred

00:16:00 - Jenny GK
Come on. So we had trouble with the bingo. And then I was like, oh, what if we did it like The Newlywed Game? And I said, Caitlin, like, we'll do like, a category like sports, and you have to guess, Caitlin, what you think my favorite sports story of the summer was. And she texted me back, I would lose. You're too random. And I responded with, that is the best compliment you've ever given me, because it's true.

00:16:25 - Caitlin Kindred
You are random. Like, you're professional ironing and all kinds of weirdness. Extreme ironing. Extreme ironing. My extreme apologies.

00:16:37 - Jenny GK
Okay, so the rules that we settled on was we would both choose seven news stories about which we were actually interested and really liked from the summer. Yes. But we would only present three on the show, and if I happen to choose one that is on Caitlin's list, I get a point. And if she happens to choose one that is on my list, she gets a point.

00:17:01 - Caitlin Kindred
So to be clear, the strategy is of my random answers, I have to choose the ones that I think you have.

00:17:08 - Jenny GK
That's right.

00:17:09 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay, great. Who goes first? You're older than me. You go. Okay.

00:17:17 - Jenny GK
Age before beauty, right? All right, here we go. So the one that I am like, 95% confident on, that you have on your list yes. Katie Ladecki winning more medals than Michael Phelps.

00:17:29 - Caitlin Kindred
I don't have that one.

00:17:32 - Jenny GK
I thought, seriously, with the way you're obsessed with the Olympics, you would love that. She is setting herself up in 2024 to beat his Olympic record as well.

00:17:42 - Caitlin Kindred
She's killing it. And I thought about it, but no, I did not put that one on there.

00:17:47 - Jenny GK
Oh, my gosh. I was really proud of that. And I don't know if my other ones are going to stand up to.

00:17:53 - Caitlin Kindred
What I really thought was going to work. I do have a different Olympic story, though.

00:17:59 - Jenny GK
Okay. She has been modest and kind about the whole thing. She's praising her training grounds at University of Florida. She's just been amazing and just so humble and breaking records all over the place. So way to go.

00:18:15 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah. She's killing amazing. Okay, this is one I think you might have okay. Swifties literally shook it off and caused.

00:18:29 - Jenny GK
An earthquake in Seattle. Yay.

00:18:35 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay, so if you don't know this story, we know that in Seattle, taylor Swift concert goers caused seismic activity to the point where it registered higher than an earthquake. And I can't remember the exact number, but I want to say like a two, three or something like that. Anyway, they actually did cause an earthquake by literally shaking it off in Seattle.

00:19:01 - Jenny GK
It's nuts.

00:19:02 - Caitlin Kindred
It's nuts. Yeah. Wild. Completely insane. And, yeah, it's happened before in Seattle with a football game, but this is way higher than that. Way higher than that. Amazing. Yay. I get a point.

00:19:16 - Jenny GK
You do get a like, I don't think that my others are going to be point worthy. Okay. Perhaps you have this one? The Writers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild going on strike.

00:19:30 - Caitlin Kindred
I do not have that one. It made me sad, so I don't have it.

00:19:34 - Jenny GK
Okay, well, here are some great things that came out of it. Number one, Fran Drescher is the president question mark. What amazing?

00:19:44 - Caitlin Kindred
How did none of us know that?

00:19:46 - Jenny GK
Right? It's like, way to go, girl. Way to awesome. So she's revealing Renaissance woman, right?

00:19:55 - Caitlin Kindred
So much about herself. It's amazing. I also have just learned that some of the residuals we're talking about, they don't even make enough to cover health insurance costs. We're talking less than $20,000 total out of all of this. It's insane what they're not making.

00:20:11 - Jenny GK
So this is the second happy story that comes out of that. George Clooney and Meryl Streep have given tons of money to this emergency fund for the actors and writers who are out of work while they're striking.

00:20:23 - Caitlin Kindred
Wow, that's great.

00:20:24 - Jenny GK
I mean, lots of other actors have as well, but as of late July, those were the two leading donators. The fund is up to, like, 15 million or something. It's nuts.

00:20:34 - Caitlin Kindred
Well, that's good for them. I feel like it's probably still not enough, but it's kind of amazing. Like, think of actors and actresses as these extremely wealthy, unattainable people are famous.

00:20:46 - Jenny GK
Actors and actresses, right?

00:20:48 - Caitlin Kindred
Exactly. It's very different. And writers in particular really get hammered quite a bit. It's time to just pay people what they're worth.

00:20:56 - Jenny GK
Right? I'm talking about creepy thing where oh, we're going to use your we're going to use your computers.

00:21:03 - Caitlin Kindred
So creepy. You're creepy. Not okay.

00:21:07 - Jenny GK
All right.

00:21:08 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay. My next story. I thought you might have mustard skittles are real.

00:21:14 - Jenny GK
Wait, what? I don't have it, but I need to taste it.

00:21:21 - Caitlin Kindred

00:21:22 - Jenny GK
Mustard Skittles.

00:21:24 - Caitlin Kindred
Mustard Skittles. Skittles and French's partnered. It's like a gimmick fang, but there's limited edition mustard Skittles.

00:21:34 - Jenny GK
Okay, so is Heinz going to jump on board? And there'll be ketchup skittles.

00:21:38 - Caitlin Kindred

00:21:39 - Jenny GK
Maybe Miracle Whip like Mayo skittles. And you could have, like, a whole condiment bar.

00:21:43 - Caitlin Kindred
Stop it.

00:21:44 - Jenny GK
I want Hidden Valley Ranch skittles.

00:21:47 - Caitlin Kindred
You know what? You might be better off going towards Brock's candy corn flavors. Like, the random candy corn flavors, because they do, like, a Thanksgiving dinner. One, there's all kinds of weird flavors from Brock, but I haven't heard anything about Skittles. But, yes, I'm going to put the link to McCormick Mustard, which is the brand, the French's brand. I'll put a link to it in the show notes. You can see it's totally real. Here's what they say about it. Says, Skittles is a candy that needs no introduction, but it deserves a lot of love. That's why when they hopped on board to combine their candy with our tang, we were over the moon wild. Then we tasted them and shot right through it. Few partnerships make sense. This one truly does not, which means it absolutely does. So well done. I thought this was just random enough.

00:22:38 - Jenny GK
That I might get you the original OD couple. Mustard and skin. Mustard and skittles.

00:22:44 - Caitlin Kindred
So nasty.

00:22:45 - Jenny GK
So gross. So gross. I don't eat yellow mustard if it's, like, in something, sure. But I don't like it as its thing by itself, because when I was in middle school, that was always what we went to in truth or dare of, like, take a cupful of mustard, mix it with milk, and you have to drink mustard and milk. That was gross. Mustard on cat food. Like, I have had a lot of French's mustard in middle school.

00:23:13 - Caitlin Kindred
So gross. That's a really nasty combination.

00:23:18 - Jenny GK

00:23:19 - Caitlin Kindred
Mustard and pretty much anything else besides, like hot dog. Hot dog. Yeah.

00:23:24 - Jenny GK
All right. Got another one I kind of want to pivot. Are we allowed to do that?

00:23:29 - Caitlin Kindred
Sure, why not?

00:23:30 - Jenny GK
Okay, so I was going to go with one story, but now that you revealed something about yourself and saying that you have another Olympic story, I'm going to go with Simone being back.

00:23:42 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah, you get points.

00:23:44 - Jenny GK
Okay. She's back, baby. Okay. And you know what? She said something that I thought was so interesting.

00:23:50 - Caitlin Kindred
What'd she say?

00:23:50 - Jenny GK
She said, when you get married, people ask, now, when are you going to have babies?

00:23:55 - Caitlin Kindred

00:23:55 - Jenny GK
She said, I show up for classics, and people are asking about the Olympics, and it's like, you know what? That is so accurate. I even wrote it like an old school analogy. Marriages to babies as classics as to Olympics. Yeah, that was a really interesting comment, like, yeah, just let her enjoy coming back. Do we have to talk about 2024 right now?

00:24:16 - Caitlin Kindred
I think that there's a lot of pressure. That's got to be what that's what.

00:24:20 - Jenny GK
Had her leaving in the first place.

00:24:22 - Caitlin Kindred
Exactly. Yeah. Talking about it right now, that's really not the but she's back. Yeah, she's back.

00:24:27 - Jenny GK
And I got a point. Okay.

00:24:29 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah, you did.

00:24:30 - Jenny GK
Well played, GK.

00:24:31 - Caitlin Kindred
Good job. Okay, so we just did another sports one. I don't think you're going to have any of the ones that I have left. I'm going to be really honest about this. Okay. Did you hear about the slide?

00:24:43 - Jenny GK
The slide? Like, as in electric?

00:24:45 - Caitlin Kindred
No, as in slide gets a point. Boston police officer gets no points.

00:24:50 - Jenny GK
Wait, what?

00:24:52 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay, the best I can do here is describe this viral video. Okay.

00:24:59 - Jenny GK
All I am thinking about is the pilot of Parks and RECs when the drunk guy gets stuck in the slide on the playground.

00:25:06 - Caitlin Kindred

00:25:07 - Jenny GK
In the cold open.

00:25:08 - Caitlin Kindred
Yes, I know. It is a metal tube slide with an opening at the bottom, which means you're going to fly down this thing. Right, right. It is a Boston police officer who goes down the slide and shoots out the bottom so fast that he drags his face across that rubber turf. Oh, my it's so the caption is, a Boston police officer sustained a head injury after a mishap at a playground. This is not a mishap. This thing fires. It's like watching someone get shot out of a cannon. Right.

00:25:46 - Jenny GK
And a mishap implies an actual journalist is so kind.

00:25:52 - Caitlin Kindred
Right. And the tweets about this are killing me. And this is my favorite tweet about it, and it's by someone who goes by the name Pudding Person, and it's at Juniper, and it's I have so many questions. Why is he going backwards and on his stomach? Why is he going so fast? Did a child kick him down the slide? Funniest thing I've ever seen.

00:26:18 - Jenny GK
Did you ever have a metal slide when you were a kid?

00:26:20 - Caitlin Kindred
We had the ones that were, like, open. It wasn't a tube.

00:26:23 - Jenny GK
Right? We had, like, just a piece of metal that was at an angle that.

00:26:28 - Caitlin Kindred
You'D burn yourself on.

00:26:30 - Jenny GK
My mom used to rub it with wax paper to make it faster. Yeah.

00:26:37 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, man. So you'd burn yourself on the metal ones, and you'd either go super fast or super slow. And then they replaced them with the plastic ones, and those would pinch you and rip your skin off and rip your hair out in different places. There is no safe slide, folks.

00:26:50 - Jenny GK
And they're just those marks up your back where it's, like, cut.

00:26:54 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah, all the seams. Horrible. Well, I thought you might have seen the video. I didn't think you'd seen it, but I'm definitely going to send this to you because you will crack up. It's so horrible. Everyone is laughing at this Boston police officer, but, like, I just have so many questions. What was he why? Why did you do this? So funny. And I'll make sure that this gets linked in the show notes.

00:27:21 - Jenny GK
Like, don't have so many questions. I just have the why. Maybe also how.

00:27:27 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay, so when I just closed the window just now, the still was on his leg hanging off the slide as he's tumbling down backwards. I think I probably have seen him tumble down that slide, like, 40 times. I watched it over and over and over and over. It's so good. Sorry. I'm glad the officer is okay, but, oh, man, I laughed so hard. Okay, so now we each have one, and we've done three stories. You want to throw one more at me? Just one?

00:27:57 - Jenny GK
Yeah, just one. Miranda Lambert going nuts after people taking selfies.

00:28:02 - Caitlin Kindred
No, I don't follow the country music, but that is come on, man. Honey, what are you doing? And it is not your place to be judging what someone else did. You already got the money. Why do you care? She pays attention. Who cares? She's there with her friends documenting you. I think she's turned around taking the picture with Miranda Lambert in the background.

00:28:27 - Jenny GK

00:28:28 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, my look where I am. I'm at the Miranda Lambert concert, and Miranda Lambert chastises you in front of.

00:28:34 - Jenny GK
Everyone, and all that girl got was tons of free publicity.

00:28:39 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, for sure. And now everyone's going to go to her concert and take pictures the way she doesn't like them. Yeah, right. Or she's going to ban phones from her event. No. Come on. What a bad idea. Okay, I have two that I could choose from. Well, I actually have three that I could choose from, but I don't think you're going to have any of them. I do work in social, so I feel like I have to say this. Find us on X. Do you have the Twitter rebrand as one of your stories from the summer?

00:29:10 - Jenny GK
I do not. But do you know that I have not updated the app because I don't want that icon on my screen.

00:29:16 - Caitlin Kindred
It's going to force the update. It forced mine. Oh, man.

00:29:20 - Jenny GK
But I'm holding off as long as I can.

00:29:23 - Caitlin Kindred
I can't. So now it no longer says, like, quote, tweet, retweet, or any of that. It just says, like, repost. It's ridiculous. Exit. Yeah, I think I've gone through and x'd everyone's posts. Like what? It doesn't even so stupid. It is so dumb.

00:29:40 - Jenny GK
Did you hear the other story that Meta actually has a copyright on the letter X? So he had to make a.

00:29:51 - Caitlin Kindred
He. Also, there was some guy who owned the Twitter handle X, and he didn't own it, so he had to force that person to change. And I guess all he offered him was, like, a tour of the office and like a couple hundred dollars. Yeah, no. Something. No.

00:30:05 - Jenny GK
I want a tour on your spaceship.

00:30:07 - Caitlin Kindred
Right. You have to buy this name from me. I've had it. He said he had it for, like, 16 years or something. Crazy.

00:30:12 - Jenny GK
Well, yeah, because if you got one of the only 26 single letters, also the digits zero through nine. But yeah, he has had it for a while.

00:30:24 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah. Wild. Insane. So nuts.

00:30:27 - Jenny GK
Elon has to take me to space to get my handle right.

00:30:29 - Caitlin Kindred
I don't think anybody else wants CK and GK pocket.

00:30:34 - Jenny GK
But if they do, I'm riding a rocket.

00:30:37 - Caitlin Kindred
You know, I reserved that handle for all of our socials so early because I was like, this is it. We're just going to make it easy. I'm just doing it now.

00:30:45 - Jenny GK
This is what we're doing. Okay, so I have two more stories I didn't talk about.

00:30:49 - Caitlin Kindred
Okay, let's hear what they are. So we just tied at one, right? We just tied at one.

00:30:52 - Jenny GK
Tied at one. That's okay. We're equally great. It's like a soccer match. Sometimes it's a tie.

00:31:00 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, you could have put that one on there and you would have gotten me.

00:31:03 - Jenny GK
Oh, really?

00:31:05 - Caitlin Kindred
US women's national teams lost.

00:31:08 - Jenny GK
US losing as something that you love.

00:31:11 - Caitlin Kindred
Well, it wasn't a loved story. It was just a big story. I put that on as a big story. Thinking you might have put that on. No. Yeah. No, but that is one of them. Okay, what other one?

00:31:24 - Jenny GK
Shiny happy. People.

00:31:26 - Caitlin Kindred
I have not. That's not one of mine.

00:31:29 - Jenny GK
But, you know, I love the tuggers.

00:31:31 - Caitlin Kindred
Yes, I do.

00:31:32 - Jenny GK
I watched it all in one day.

00:31:37 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, man.

00:31:38 - Jenny GK
The day it came out.

00:31:39 - Caitlin Kindred
That's a different kind of true crime.

00:31:41 - Jenny GK
And the Astros the Astros have had one.

00:31:45 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah, I should have put that one on there. I would have gotten it. Dang it. I didn't think about that.

00:31:49 - Jenny GK
I mean, I feel like just the Astros is like its own story.

00:31:53 - Caitlin Kindred

00:31:54 - Jenny GK
Justin Verlander is back.

00:31:56 - Caitlin Kindred
It's all just craziness.

00:31:57 - Jenny GK
What the did you see that? He said he was going to wear an all gold suit to celebrate the World Series win, and then he did.

00:32:04 - Caitlin Kindred

00:32:07 - Jenny GK
And they threw a no hitter. It's only the 16th in club history, and minimum number of batters, 27. You can throw a no hitter with more. But they did it the way it was clean.

00:32:20 - Caitlin Kindred
It was cool.

00:32:21 - Jenny GK
Clean is great. Yeah, that's a good way to describe it.

00:32:24 - Caitlin Kindred
Yeah, I should have put that one on there, but I didn't. All right, so here are my other ones. So I said the find us on X. I said the swifties one. I said the mustard skittles. We talked about the US. Women's national team. Talked about Simone Biles. Talked about the slides. So my only one that's left is, it's not that exciting. It's Wimbledon shorts. This is not like YouTube shorts or anything.

00:32:44 - Jenny GK
Okay, that's what I was saying.

00:32:45 - Caitlin Kindred
I was like the no. So we've talked about this when we do sports talk on our show many moons ago, how there are very, very outdated rules that exist, in particular when it comes to policing women's bodies.

00:33:00 - Jenny GK
Yeah. Like, they have to wear all white.

00:33:01 - Caitlin Kindred
Not anymore, they don't have to.

00:33:04 - Jenny GK
Oh, wow. You can play tennis in something other than white?

00:33:08 - Caitlin Kindred

00:33:08 - Jenny GK
Did it change the game?

00:33:09 - Caitlin Kindred
No. Weirdly enough.

00:33:11 - Jenny GK
Now, do you have to wear all white if you play tennis on the world? Because they do have a full size tennis court, right?

00:33:18 - Caitlin Kindred
I don't know if it's whites only on their court. I have no idea. So here's the deal. Basically, you still have to wear white over everything. However, women may now wear different colored shorts underneath their that's amazing skirts, which is now going to help many women as they play while they are menstruating. Because think about how anxiety producing that is to be wearing white during that time of the month. And you're playing a sport where your body is, like, literally going in every different direction all the time the other.

00:33:52 - Jenny GK
Three weeks of the month. I am also concerned about the amount of sweat that would go through white shirt.

00:33:58 - Caitlin Kindred
Truth. Can I also tell you, I really dislike white bottoms on football uniforms? I don't like it because you can see every strap strap. It all glows right through. Can't stand it. Makes me crazy. I feel that way about the Dallas Cowboys uniforms, and I know I'm going to get flak for that, but I don't care. I hate white pants. I hate them on football teams because of all the things you can see.

00:34:25 - Jenny GK
And they often wear them after Labor Day.

00:34:28 - Caitlin Kindred
Fashion football. Unacceptable. Oh, y'all all right a heck of a summer. We just caught you up. You're all set now. You don't need to know anything else.

00:34:39 - Jenny GK
Tweeted us. I mean, X at us if you have some interesting stories that we didn't cover.

00:34:47 - Caitlin Kindred
Oh, goodness. X marks the spot or something for craziness a he's like, Talk Like a private talk like a Private day. No. Talk like a Pirate Day. That was going to be a joke, and it's gone, so just forget it. I'm done. Okay, bye.

00:35:06 - Jenny GK
Okay, so when you are trying to guess what your co host might say are her favorite stories from the summer, make good choices.

00:35:17 - Caitlin Kindred
I'm not saying anything else. My mouth doesn't work anymore.

00:35:20 - Jenny GK
Okay, bye.
