I want you to know that I originally hand wrote most of this post at work while my boss was on break.
This month I am going to talk to a podcast I’ve only actually been listening to for a couple weeks.
Yes, I have been binge-listening.
I have been watching Meghan Tonjes’ Youtube videos on and off for years. I like her music, her work concerning body positivity and the way she gives zero fucks about calling out famous Youtubers on their bullshit.
I was sort of vaguely aware that she had a podcast with her roommate, and that I would probably like it a lot, but I resisted. There are just so many podcasts in my life right now, I rationalised.
Then Meghan decided to film part of an episode of the podcast, Adventures in Roommating, and post it onto her channel, during which she are her co-host, Keith Battista, reviewed sex toys.
I was sold. I have been listening daily ever since.
It is worth noting that this podcast is NSFW. It’s also NSFP (not safe for parents. Or, most parents. I suppose it really depends on the parents. In my case, listening to this show with my mum would be super awkward).
Adventures in Roommating is the late night (sometimes, but not always) tipsy kitchen conversation you have with friends while you wait for the pizza to arrive. You know the one, where you talk about the movies you saw and the Internet Thing of the day (positive or negative) before moving on to the important stuff.
The important stuff being, of course, who we’re all sleeping with.
It’s also the answering of listener questions and provision of the sort of honest advice we all ask for but don’t actually want.
(the answer to the question of whether or not one should date a youtuber is almost always no)
In both life and the podcast, Keith is the one who will tell you you’re doing something wrong with an eye roll while Meghan swoops in to slap you across the face.
Listening to this one while I drag myself out of bed in the mornings has been a bright spot in a shitty couple weeks.
(nothing serious, don’t worry. Just adult life getting me down).

I’ve literally started listening to podcasts two days ago so this post came at a very good time in my life. I’ve really only listened to Modern Love, which I’ve been enjoying, but this one sounds super funny and I’ll be checking it out! Do you have other recommendations? 🙂
I have so many! Call Your Girlfriend is a really great one looking at feminism and pop culture. Stuff Mom Never Told You is another feminist one that looks at both pop culture and historical stuff. It’s really fascinating, actually. They just did a whole thing about the history of gynaecology. Another one I really love is The Lively Show, which is basically a life style/personal development type thing.
I am a bit obsessed with podcasts.
Your obsession is worth gold to me! I’ll be checking those ones out throughout the week. 🙂
