The Mugly Truth Podcast

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

In this topic-less episode, our organic conversation takes on a bit of the traumatic as we discuss the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, deadly fires in the western United States, and first-hand horror of witnessing dogs attacking neighbors. Is it 2021 yet?

Our discussion turns to viral social media trends we'll be glad to never see again, including using explosive devices used for gender-reveals. If you use social media to any degree, you're sure to have seen some of the viral challenges on videos. If not, you might not believe your ears, but rest assured they're all real...some with deadly consequences.

We revisit Disneyland...virtually of course...in this most auspicious episode 101. This is not like episode 33 where apparently we were very annoyed with the park. Today we fondly talk all things Disneyland, including some of our favorite memories of the park, which opening day attractions are still in use, world-wide Disney parks, and what it's like to venture into Downtown Disney, which is as close to Disneyland as you're...

Today we dive right into the frenzy of Shark Week, which started August 9 on Discovery Channel! We discuss the more interesting sounding episodes, facts about Shark Week, and sharks in general. Just to soften things up we venture into the softer side of the ocean with some highly interesting facts about seahorse that will blow you out of the water. Oh, and...yeah...it's our 100th Episode!

We're back with a brand new episode, talking about some of the most, ah, interesting days of August. Did you know there's a Secretly Put A Zucchini on Your Neighbors Porch Day? Like your Great Uncle Waldo, we don't talk about it, but it's still there against all odds. We do talk about Mustard, Mahjong, Disneyland, Frankenstein, Vesuvius, Perseids Meteors, and ever so lightly graze over nuts, hangovers, underwear, an...

We come back this week with more questions. We are still learning, still absorbing, still reflecting, still talking. We're hoping 2020 won't be the year to "be cancelled", but the year that - in hindsight - we can see actually changed the world.

We had a light and airy podcast planned but could not continue to keep quiet about what is happening in our country today. We both felt when we met up to record there was no way we could record our "normal" episode without first talking about George Floyd, racism in our country and how we can be allies lending our voice to the millions who have cried out for generations for equality and justice. It ended up being our full e...

It's a favorite game kids play, hence it's something we enjoyed immensely...and let's face it, this is a fun way to break the ice at any party, social(ly distant still) gathering, or zoom work meeting (choose those questions wisely friends). What are we talking about? WOULD YOU RATHER of course! Grab your pen and paper and see how you closely aligned you are with Kym and Kris as they figure out what they'd rather......

Well, we NEVER! Or...have we? Today we sit on a boat in a marina on a lovely Southern California day playing the classic Never Have I Ever Game because we don't want to talk about V Who Must Not Be Named anymore. So come along, grab a pencil and a piece of paper and play along. Let's see just how wild and goof we all are. I mean, there's a reason we're all here for the Mugly Truth, right?

Yeah we still talk about CV19, lockdown life as we know it, and the TikTok rabbit hole, but then we get into the real meat and potatoes of the show...despite the hedge-trimmer in the neighbor's yard. So join us as we throw out a quick list of awesome music that has been lifting our spirits, moving our souls, and maybe even caused some car dancing recently.

Today we practice social distancing for a much needed outdoors friendly chat. There's no main topic, just two friends catching up, and, yeah, dropping some f-bombs about the stupidity of some things happening in this world (don't drink bleach people). But we also talk about fun stuff like Tiger King, Leslie Jordan, TikTok, and Leslie Jordan ON Tiktok.

Are you bored in the house? Are you in the house bored? Need a new hobby on the cheap? Want a fresh perspective on that old box of Chutes and Ladders? Today Kym drops some clues on inexpensive hobbies and Kris has trivia about board-games, jigsaw and crossword puzzles. Because singing a song about useless game knowledge on your guitar you just learned to play goes a long way with breaking the ice at your next Zoom par-tay! WHOOP W...

Unless you're a baker, a chef, or Food Network denizen, you might not know things like chips and bacon can be frozen, or flour doesn't last forever. These days we ALL need food schooling since every trip to the grocery store should come with hazard pay. Kym shares some cool (#seewhatwedidthere) tips about the best way to prepare food to be frozen, because you don't just throw any old thing into the freezer willy nilly. ...

We bring you some good news from the goodnewsnetwork.org because this entire world needs some good stories right now. We also talk a little more about some fun days to celebrate this fine, lovely second week of April. And Kym talks about sifting through owl poop and finding rat teeth and other bones. Read all those sentences again. Vurrrrry slowly. One is not like the others. It's what we do.

The time's they are a-reelin' and we're trying to adjust to this temporary "new normal" along with everyone else. Today's episode is a little different as Kym was unable to record, so Kris' daughter Hayley hopped on and they have a candid discussion about life in quarantine. Oh, and like, there are, like, a LOT of, you know, likes in this episode.

We're back! And we are dropping the C-word all over the place (we actually drop both C-words...SHHHHHH don't tell our moms). But because we believe there's more to life these days than V Who Must Not Be Named, we also bring you all the ridiculous (and some pretty heavy) international days to observe over the next week. Now you just need to decide if you're gonna celebrate in your living room, kitchen, or bedroom. If...

This week we talk about humanity, trolls, knee-jerk reactions, panic purchasing, hand-washing, drinking bleach, and wonder deeply about two things: how is toilet paper going to save mankind, and how on earth is it possible to not touch your face *rests chin on fist, contemplating*  Oh, and happy Full Moon and Friday the 13th. Yep. We're in trouble.
