This week we're joined by comedian and podcaster Renie Rivas. Thanks to the elusive "illegal cable box", Renie was introduced to porn at a young age. It consumed her life as a third grader, but by relating it to when she was able to quit biting her nails, she was able to kick the compulsion and now it's sort of a "birthdays and anniversaries" treat. We the potential pros but mostly cons of too early sex ed, ...

It's House Parties week on Pinky Promise and we're joined by comedian and writer Pamela Ross. Learning to underage drink, the diet of a comedian, and other healthy habits abound. Our party tricks mostly relied on the flexibility that comes with stupid youth, now you're lucky if we show up let alone perform. Could you do a split or something else cool? Let us know!

We're joined this week by comedian, producer and director Carole Montgomery. As a 7th grader with a crush, Carole was willing to do whatever it took to get her man. Even if it included skipping a grade and going to a school in another district! Hunky Portuguese soldiers, joining the cheerleading squad to catch a football player's eye, elaborately formal birthday parties, this one truly has it all.

Comedian, actress and writer Kate Willett joins us this week to share her classic tale of adolescence. Girl meets boy, girl starts rumors about herself, boy dumps girl, girls are mean to girl, girl starts more rumors about herself...you know, an age old classic. We loved hearing Kate's introspective look back, and optimistic look forward. We also learned a bit about Kate's new book Dirtbag Anthropology, available now on Aud...

Hold onto your butts as we welcome comedian Colleen Genevieve on this week's episode. Colleen got the sex talk young. Like, 6 years old young.

We followed along on her journey from flabbergasted child (3 kids = sex 3 times?!), losing the big V, and finally i...

This week we're joined by comedian Oscar Collazos. Oscar and his family immigrated to the United States from Colombia when he was 7. He made his way by making people laugh (pro-tip: start with physical comedy while you're learning the language), and from there it was uphill all the way -- except sleepovers, his mom wasn't having that. In this episode we bond over our unpronounceable names, holidays with TOO MUCH FOOD, s...

This week we welcome comedian Rob Crean to the show. We're talking about underage drinking - how seeking out booze was usually more fun than drinking it, Katie the license chalking wizard, why Laura put the brakes on redbull & vodka and Rob's reflections on where he's been and where he's going. He's got a sad boy album - it's even more funny than it is sad, and it's really sad! Give it a listen!

Comedian Sarah Garner joins us on this week's episode to talk about cliques. We all agree the word "clique" comes with a negative connotation but after a great discussion and a thorough review of Sarah's still-going-high school clique's group chat, we discover that they can also be a good thing! One piece of advice though, if your crew nicknames themselves, everyone will know. Sarah is the best, you're gonna...

This week Katie and Laura welcome comedian Liz Miele to talk about peer pressure. Why is it worse as an adult?! The gals did a lot of prepping for pressure as a kid that never came, and yet they had no idea if you're an adult who doesn't want a drink, it's A Whole Thing. Also we spend a decent amount of time talking about cats, how to keep them busy, and other deeply important things.

This week we were thrilled to be joined by actress, writer, producer, podcaster and self care muse Candy Washington. In most of our episodes our guests regale us with cringe-worthy tales of awkward, absurd or extreme nerd, but this week is different. In 8th grade Candy asked one of the Brians in her class (SO MANY BRIANS) why all the boys wanted to be her friend, and that's when she realized she was pretty! Katie and Laura were...

It's a new week on Pinky Promise and we're thrilled to have comedian, actor and artist Thea Lux join us to talk about concerts! We determine dads are the best concert buddies, it's never wise to date your drummer, and though wallet chains are COOL, they're cooler if you don't lose your keys off of them.    You can watch this full episode on YouTube
