The Mugly Truth Podcast

Welcome to conversations over coffee with two hard-working women who are lifelong friends. Even though we've walked different paths, we share a quirky sense of humor and infuse our stories with some pretty salty language. We share our messes and adventures and most of the time our stories aren’t graceful, or wrapped up with a bow on top – most of the time, they're just the mugly truth.... Show More

It's November, so discussion turns to gratitude, obviously. Today we cover 30 days of thankfulness topics in under an hour. The prompts range from people, places, aromas, and experiences to shoes, restaurants, and clothes. As usual, we found it pretty difficult to come up with some answers whilst under pressure, but the good news is we have coined a new species: Snowmanimal.

We needed to take a recording hiatus for the month of October, but we're back with lots of talk about what it's like to go through a spiritual awakening. Think it's all butterflies and rainbows? Nah, it's more like chaos and insanity – like Mario Brothers jumping to the next level through a tear in the fabric of the Universe. Too heavy? Ok we also talk about other stuff, like Karl the goldendoodle being the best ... Read more

This week we cover another AMAZING ghost walk tour from hauntedoc.com! We were lucky enough to get Charles, our tour guide from last year's "Haunted Orange" episode. Charles knocks it out of the park again, this time teaching us the eerie history of one of California's oldest cities, San Juan Capistrano. You know, the town with the Mission and the Swallows. We've got murdering bandits, faceless monks, and gho... Read more

As true as "all things fall" may be in terms of gravity, let us be very clear: we aren't talking about science but EVERYTHING AUTUMNAL! Today we tackle fun Fall facts, pumpkin trivia, and even how to make your own pumpkin spice coffee syrup for those light spring or summer days with no PSL to be found, because, duh...spring and summer. All hail the first day of Fall! Celebrate with us by listening to "All Things ... Read more

Today we dive into the (rather questionable) history of how Friday the 13th became a thing, stumble over yet another set of official words, and were actually surprised by the fun facts we dug up! So this coming Friday you have to ask yourself: do I feel lucky or is every black cat, ladder, cracked mirror, spilled salt cellar, and open umbrella in my house gonna break my stride?

Today we discuss the American national holiday Labor Day, including facts, the true meaning behind its origins, and some fun events you shouldn't miss in 2020. We originally called this Labor Day Pains as a way to poke fun at everyone waking up Tuesday morning with a hangover. Now it's Labor DOOR Pains, but you'll just have to listen to find out why. We discuss other topics too but as always it just sort of fits. Fil... Read more

There's a lot going on in today's episode. We started off with a great topic (the end of summer) but what we ended up with was a LOT of unanswered questions! We are baffled by the status of watermelon (fruit or vegetable?) and the meaning of crepuscular, shed light on the dog days and cat nights of summer, enjoy goats swaggering to the Bee Gee's "Stayin' Alive" and reminisce about Chewbacca Mom. Proves we... Read more

Well, we aren't getting to know YOU, but we are getting to know each other and in turn you get to know a bit more about us because it's 30 questions time!! Or 20? 18? We lost count – and truth be told the original list was a whopping 100 questions, so you're welcome – but we do know we ran out of time because some of the "getting to know you" questions were real stumpers. Link to the source questions in our w... Read more

It's been a week, so Kris and Kym take to the internet for feel-good stories and stories that make you think twice about the times we live in. Tune in as we discuss solar-powered cars, rescue puppies, lottery winners, spiders, kind of stupid people, and one cute but misguided child.

We couldn't help it. There was so much involved in the Mike Morford interview that we had to record a bonus episode...mostly to expound on things we touched on in the original interview (the GSK and Night Stalker cases, Janelle Cruz, DNA) but as always we veer off into related subjects and topics (such as the award-winning 2018 Three Identical Strangers documentary, Albert Flick, and other detours). But mostly we wa... Read more

Certain things just come to mind when summer hits: pool parties, camping trips, barbecuing, and going to the fair! Fairs are usually known for rides and livestock and blue-ribbon contests, but you have to admit, "fair food" is also a big draw. They usually have food you just can't get anywhere else, and there's always a new (and occasionally weird) fried something to try out. So today we cover all the different f... Read more

One podcast – My Favorite Murder – is what inspired us to start podcasting so today we go back to our obsession with true crime to share two "hometown murders," a la MFM. In this episode we talk about the 2003 murder of Diego Armando Gonzalez-Sanchez, a 17 year old El Modena High School wrestler and the 1991 workplace shooting at Fairview Developmental Center which left one dead and two injured. Both stories have persona... Read more

Today we discuss weird and fun stories we found on the internet...because we all know the world is an endless supply of laughs, eyebrow raises, and spiders. Yes, spiders are back. So are zombie snakes, mega-queues, good humans, strange humans, money for the taking, and body parts on the rocks. Oh, hundreds of thousands of people who do the...things...just to join a club. Do not eat before listening. You've been warned gol... Read more

Today's episode continues a trend in our recordings lately, which is nothing ever seems to go as planned. Our main topic is about the good ways people are using social media, we can't help but talk about all the s*** that hit the fan the day we recorded (like Kym's cat getting an industrial sized fish hook caught in her paw), how being true crime addicts have affected us as moms, and how on Earth Kris took so long to...
