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.

Today we talk about movies that are part of the great "Is it a Christmas movie or not?" debate, the likes of which include Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Gremlins, Better Off Dead, Meet Me in St. Louis, The Ref and so many more. If you're not ready for Elf, A Christmas Story or Miracle on 34th Street, you can get primed for the holidays in a less traditional way with these classic unChristmas movies. And, yeah, we talk about our must-wat...

We don't even know what happened with the topic for this episode because when we sat down to record, an organic conversation of our feelings about Disney's current shenanigans, gas prices, the state of healthcare and then more about Disney sort of spewed out. If you're looking for warm fuzzy fun, check out our previous episodes. If you want to commiserate about the state of this planet grab a stiff drink, pull up a chair and let's ...

Viewing real estate websites is the stuff of daydreams: sneaky peeks of spacious open floorplans with a killer view, whether you're just wishing, or actually looking to buy. And anyone who's been on a site like Zillow or Redfin, has likely seen at least one house that truly made them go "hmmmmm". So today we're talking about some of those weird properties and really, we just have one request: clean your damned house before taking p...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! We're dropping early to discuss the Salem Witch Trials with a twist: one of us has a great, great, great, great, etc., somebody or other in her family tree who was a major player in the trials.

Everyone knows the big names of cinematic villain history, there's a whole universe of them out there that rock our spooky world. Rather than talk a little about a bunch, we decided to delve deep into the creepy closet to dig up the skeletons of two of our favorites: The Invisible Man and Oogie Boogie. Turn off the lights, don't be afraid...someone is watching you...

Today's conversation is quite organic. We discuss our ongoing concerns about the pandemic, pay homage to some celebrities who have recently passed (some from Covid), and then talk about 9/11 and Columbine and how mass trauma has a massive ripple effect. We reference two podcasts: 9/12 and Confronting Columbine, both of which both have provided a whole new perspective on both tragedies.

Grab your coffee, sit down and enjoy today's talk about Disney's Magic Keys pricing system, the Disney+ show "Behind the Attraction," and other Disney fun facts before the subject turns to how merely commenting on the internet can get you fired, freedom of speech, and the power of "just keep scrolling." Oh, and bonus points if anyone knows how many times we've talked about how much we hate summer and want Autumn to begin.

"This word you keep saying...I don't think it means what you think it means." Yep, here's words again, but this time we not only use the incorrect one to categorize the words we talk about BUT we also give you a bucketload of words and phrases that mean something to someone else somewhere else on the planet. So grab your soda/pop/cola, kick off your sneakers/tennis shoes/trainers, and relax into the fun mess of detours and words, w...

...How it's going now. Ahh, getting old. Nobody told us what to expect, or, if they did we didn't listen. Likely we just thought, "Who cares. That's a hundred years from now." Oh, lovely naive youth, lesson one is: time warps exist. Before you know it your knees squish, you can't sit on the floor, you pee when you laugh, groan to help yourself get out of a chair, and acne and hormones have come out of retirement just for YOU. Grab ...

We all know the moment we're born we begin to die. Some fear death, others do not. Where do we go after death? Do we really go to heaven? Do our souls exist outside of our bodies? Do loves ones really send us signs from beyond? Join us as we talk about coping with the death of loved ones, and the truth about our own mortality. It's a deep topic that we tread lightly with a cat meow or two thrown in to remind us to not take life (or...

Just like Ross and Rachel...WE WERE ON A BREAK! But now we're back! And just in time to talk about America's Independence Day, what Netflix, YouTube and Prime shows we're hooked on (Bridgerton, The Nevers, Christine McConnell anyone?) as well as a bit of state of the nation opining. It wouldn't be The Mugly Truth if we didn't have trivia, coffee-fueled opinions, detours...oh, you guys. We missed you.

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 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 going t...

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, and bad poetry.
