Underwhelmed

Underwhelmed

Underwhelmed is a weekly podcast hosted by the extremely relatable and occasionally funny thirty-somethings, Nicole Kokinos and Christie Wheeler. Inspired by the mediocrity of their jobs and the cities they live in (Baltimore, MD and Richmond, VA respectively), this self proclaimed dynamic duo sets out each week to provide joy to others by sharing the daily experiences, events, and things they are underwhelmed (and sometimes overwhelmed) by. Their mission is simple- to provide a safe space to vent, joke, and laugh about first world problems, and help their listeners avoid the same disenchantment by sharing the tips and tricks they use on a daily basis to help them live their best lives and avoid being underwhelmed. Underwhelmed is the perfect podcast for mildly inappropriate people that occasionally cross the line in their quest to be semi-successful adults. So take a break, grab a cocktail, and enjoy this dynamic duo's weekly discussions on life's most important issues and the things that underwhelm them.... Show More

Christie and Lisa go back to the very roots of Underwhelmed and share a myriad of stories that one could label as either overwhelming or underwhelming. It is safe to say that they are just not whelmed, so join us for a conversation about Christie losing her mind and being beaten down by life (but she's not broken), and Lisa winning at life by doing things like taking trips to the Hippie Hut Smoke Shop and surviving office fires...
