Episode Date
Ep 155: I Wish You Would Step Back From That Dresser, My Friend
55:23

A week ago I walked into a thrift store and found truly the vintage dollhouse dresser of unrealized dreams for sale for $125 and I balked and didn’t buy it (but listener and new friend Hannah did). Now I can’t stop thinking about it and I had to call Sally in to help me figure out why I, a professional money spender, panicked and didn’t spend the money on this dresser. We’re calling it non-buyer’s remorse.

 

PS – Do you have this 70s dresser? Can I buy it from you?

Ep 154: Is A $700 Litter Box Worth It?
1:02:36

Sally and I both shelled out the big bucks for the $700 (*SUCKS IN BREATH*) Litter Robot, and now we’re giving you our full review. If these cats could talk.

 

Plus, a familial connection to the Hammacher Report!

Ep 153: Hitting The Road With A Food Smock
1:38:10

I am nervous to share with you that we’re talking about car things again. 

 

I think this makes three episodes where car things have come up, but Sally is going on a Road Trip (capitalization for formality) in October and we thought it was appropriate to bring up some car things. But I know Gee Thanks-heads who are loyal listeners will be like “REALLY, CAR GARBAGES AGAIN, CAROLINE?” but look, we don’t go through life CHOOSING our passions, okay? We are born this way. Or at least, I am.

 

But I do bring up some new ideas like a food eating sweatshirt. The Real John Max will be helping me patent. Don’t even try!

Ep 152: Sally's Here To Stay (CORRECT AUDIO, SMH)
1:00:50

If you haven’t guessed yet, Sally Tamarkin is here for the long haul (or until she gets sick of doing this; really who knows!). This episode will let Sally Heads get even more hardcore about their Sally Head-ness and for soon-to-be Sally Heads have their inaugural episode!


We play two truths and a lie and I make a claim that nothing bad happens at Disneyland, death-wise. Do not send me any claims refuting this. I will not read them. It's the only time I go on rollercoasters, I don't wanna know anything bad!

Ep 151: REPLAY: Alison Rosen Teaches Me About Tubing Mascara And Christmas Trees
1:07:37

This is a replay episode! I'll be back on September 9!


I LEARNED WHAT A TUBING MASCARA WAS. Alison Rosen is your (my) new best friend! It’s her podcast but it’s also a true statement. As I was listening back on this episode for editing I was like JFC, Caroline, if you love New York so much why don’t you just marry it! I am sorry it always comes up.

 

But anyway: ALISON! She’s here to talk about her Balsam Hill Christmas Tree, sandwiches, mascara, and so much more. She’s also lived in LA for a long time and has never gone on a hike, which is so inspiring to me. She teaches me about tubing mascara and I teach her about evergreen scented candles and my favorite new Facebook group.

Ep 148: Trapper? She's A Keeper.
1:12:38

Back to school season is here and we think it’s kind of unfair that as 30 and 40-somethings who are not, in fact, going back to school, we don’t get to participate. So we spent a bunch of time trying to convince ourselves that purchasing a vintage Trapper Keeper is actually a productive purchase. Points are made. Trapper Keepers are purchased. But not the ones that are on sale for $200+ (WTF???). Additionally: Frank HBO and The Real John Max get scolded (by us). (@TheRealJohnMax)

Ep 146: The Shopping Site for the 1%
1:11:34

This episode is alternatively titled, "Where Elon Musk does his Father's Day shopping, probably?"


Sally got served one ad for a gravity chair and then we got lost on the world's weirdest website full of $500,000 hover golf carts that you can add to cart but can never, seemingly, check out? 


Also, why do I want something called an AeroSki more than I have wanted anything ever? Plus, The Pickleball Report. Plus! The Cleaning Report.


The name of the game is SOPHIE'S CHOICE: WHAT ARE YOU BUYING FROM THE HAMMACHER SCHLEMMER WEBSITE? You can only pick one thing. Got your idea? Email Caroline@geethanksjustboughtit.com and we’ll read your choice during next week’s Schlemmer Report. HAMMACHER.COM

Ep 145: Going Deep (Cleaning)
1:03:55

Sally and I go deep on DEEP CLEANING thanks to the Gee Thanks! community basically selling out the Bissell Little Green spot cleaner. Bissell-heads know this thing packs a punch and Sally said she would lay down her life for Little Green, no cap. I talk about my drill attachment cleaner brushes, how vinegar and lemon is my new personality, and how much I hate my front-loading washer. We also reveal the things in our houses we just don’t care enough about to clean.

Ep 144: The Pickleball Report
49:56

Sally Tamarkin is back as my guest co-host and this week, their new personality is TENNIS PLAYER. By the end of the episode we both have newer personalities (Pickleball enthusiasts!). This episode is all about accessorizing for hobbies we’ll probably get bored of by next week. But boy isn’t it fun to pick out a colorful headband? Did you see that picture of space that was going around this week? It was like specks of millions of galaxies? If you look REALLY hard you can see Sally and I ignoring our new Pickleball sets.

Ep 142: Ashley Hosmer Has No Pants
1:16:22

Ashley Hosmer has no pants. She owns no pants. This is not hyperbole. If we asked her to count how many pants she has, the answer would be zero pants. She also doesn’t own an umbrella. But she does own a Victorian house, and she just Gucci wallpapered her entryway (and it’s not tacky even though it sounds SO tacky! Hi Ashley!). She has a great story about finding $$$$$$ chairs on Facebook Marketplace, and she doesn’t know what’s inside the walls of her old-ass home (because she doesn’t want to know, okay?).

I have a guest co-host this week! Oh, I Like That host Sally Tamarkin joins me to talk about the commercials that influenced us as kids, the products we desperately wanted to buy (the Talkboy, anyone?) and the ad jingles we still sing to ourselves 30 years later. Especially on a day like today, I cannot recommend this enough: Take a weed gummy and watch 90s commercials on YouTube. Thank you for coming to help me host, Sally!

THIS IS A RERUN OF EPISODE 54!

I was sick all week and decided to do a rerun. So many people requested a Dan episode (why!!!!), and I will NEVER TELL HIM!!!

A warm welcome to Dan Nosowitz, food writer extraordinaire and Caroline’s husband. No one is more intimately familiar with the shopping habits of our host than Dan is, and he’s here to tell us how he really feels about the KitchenAid, the $5 rice cooker, and the bread maker. He also wants to convert you to Pyrex glass storage and teach you all how to make salad dressing so you never have to buy it in the bottle again. PS — special appearance from Kevin the cat!

Ep 136: Grab Your Moto Razr, It's Kate Steinberg!
1:13:21

TikTok Star Kate Steinberg is here to talk all things Y2K. Amassing over 800k followers on TikTok and an additional 300k on Instagram, Kate has made a name for herself by performing those moments from our teen years that we wish we could erase from our collective memory (think grabbing your fake Coach bag for a night out at Applebees with the girlies and going into Abercrombie and Fitch and asking for…an empty bag). 


She makes a case for Uggs, and tells a truly hilarious story about working at a tanning salon in 2011.


If you aren’t following Kate…uh…Y…2K?

Ep 135: Last Week's Top Buys: Maya, Madewell, and our Fundraising Efforts
23:40

Some of you heard this episode and some of you said it never made it to your feed so I am reuploading. Top Buys from last week (5/23/22): Maya! Madewell! The Old Navy Linen Pants!


But more importantly, we raised $10,000 for Sandy Hook Promise and we’re getting that 100% matched by various friends/family with corporate matching programs. Thanks to everyone who gave. You are the best. This community is the best. I am very appreciative.

Author and FOTP Jess Goodman returns to tell me what she's been influenced by (correctly), which influenced purchases did her dirty and which corner of the internet she just can't quit. I share mine too. Then she told me about her favorite wedding registry item — her Nespresso maker.

The post that got the most comments in the Facebook group this week? The one about needing a new can opener. Over 100 comments. People have CAN OPENER OPINIONS. Can Opener Opinions would be such a good band name. Nobody steal that.


Southern Living says you’ve been using a can opener wrong your whole life: https://www.southernliving.com/food/kitchen-assistant/correct-way-to-use-a-can-opener?fbclid=IwAR1xHbcEqoeyZbXZxxISy2rZ1q3Wo-wqPvRC8fr9PjFCz0OMV_aslzCceRY (Can confirm that I, indeed, had been using a can opener wrong my whole life.)

Ep 131: Last Week's Top Buys: Meet "The Pants"
19:40

Jessica Langer in the Gee Thanks! group sang the praises of these soft pants. And so then Caralyn Mirand Koch bought them and was like, yep, they are amazing. And then I bought them and confirmed: Yes, amazing.


The new Top Buys format is as follows. Like the New York Times bestseller list, like the Top 40, every week we will share with you the Top Buy list, including information like: how long has this thing been on the list? And, has it moved up or down the list? And we’ll run through that at the beginning of the show and then use the rest of our time to talk about a product that is getting buzz within the community. Like these pants.

Ep 130: Last Week's Top Buys: Making The List and Hobbies Hobbies Hobbies
20:02

So when I started Top Buys, I chose the 3 toppiest buys that had not yet made the list. So if The Bra was #1 last week and I talked about it last week but it was also THIS WEEK’S, I would make this week’s Top 3 the 3 toppiest top buys that had not yet appeared on Top Buys. 


BUT THEN I THOUGHT, this doesn’t make sense. Books are on the bestseller list for as long as they are. SO I am just going to list the toppiest buys and how many weeks they’ve been on the list and then we will note when they get moved. Ryan Seacrest I am coming for (one of) your job(s)!


This week on Top Buy’s we talk about HOBBIES and ADHD and my new ROLLERSKATES.

Ep 126: I Got Fitted For A Real Bra With Caralyn Mirand Koch
57:17

Caralyn Mirand Kochis back and she got me to go get fitted for a bra for the first time in four (okay, five) years. After I instagrammed that summer 2022 would be known as #looseboobsummer she texted me and was like, “Caroline, that makes me sad!” and I was like, “Caralyn, bras make me sad!” and then we decided to record an episode. 


I really enjoyed my fitting at Jeanette Bras in Pasadena (not spon, trust me, I paid not a small amount of my own money for 3 bras) and I walked away with knowledge of my size and some really expensive bras. Now I am going to stack my bra drawer with some less expensive bras in the correct size. But if you think I am abandoning #TheLoungeBra, you are wrong, I’m wearing it right now. Though I must admit, it was a relief to have a properly fitting bra for this wedding that I went to last weekend. Everyone wins. Thanks Caralyn!

Ep 125: What do you buy when your husband dies on your birthday?
1:05:27

CW: This episode deals with death, depression and grief.


If you'd like to send Adriana a birthday card for her April 16th birthday, please email caroline@geethanksjustboughtit.com with the subject line ADRIANA and you will be sent her mailing address. Thank you to all of those who have reached out so far.


Two weeks ago, Adriana Rojas asked the Gee Thanks! Facebook group a question: My husband had the audacity to die on my birthday in 2020 (dark humor is now kind of my thing). I’ll be turning 37 this year, which is the age he was when he died. It’s def f*cking with me a bit that I’ll now be the age was when he died. I need to indulge in some retail therapy (don’t worry, I participate in real therapy, too). What should I buy?


What came next was a real outpouring of support, community, love, and thoughtfulness. In the midst of that, a few people asked Adriana if they could send her a birthday card. We're opening that opportunity up to everyone, in hopes of bringing a little joy to an otherwise heavy day.


Adriana joins me to talk about her husband Andrew, the last two years of living without him, and the retail therapy she clung to the most. There's both tears and laughter, and I left our conversation feeling so inspired by her strength.

POD SWAP: Caroline's Episode of "Oh I Like That"
1:06:23

We're swapping pods, just for fun! If you're not listening to "Oh I Like That", get On That! https://oh-i-like-that.simplecast.com/


EPISODE SUMMARY

We are joined by a very special guest as we dig into reality television generally and Real Housewives specifically.


EPISODE NOTES

We’ve dabbled in reality TV over the years and decided it was high time we talk about it on OILT. So, we invited our friend and Real Housewives expert Caroline Moss to talk about reality TV and how it’s changed and evolved since the early 1990s, and also to dive deep into the Real Housewives phenomenon and franchises. Caroline provides a great overview of the entire genre of reality TV, and has recommendations for the Housewives-curious who aren’t sure where to start.

Get Oh, I Like That merch here


This episode was produced by Rachel and Sally and edited by Lucas Nguyen. Our logo was designed by Amber Seger (@rocketorca). Our theme music is by Tiny Music. MJ Brodie transcribed this episode. Follow us on Twitter @OhILikeThatPod.

Ep 112: The Wedding Dress and the Facebook Group
41:52

**Patreon subscribers received an ad-free, extended version of this episode last week. Want to be a Patreon? Sign up: https://www.patreon.com/geethanksandfriends** 


Gee Thanks! listener Ashley Hill had purchased her very expensive and very unique wedding dress over the phone at Neiman Marcus. They charged her card and told her the dress would be shipped out the next day. In between that phone call and the next day, an error in communication led Ashley's dress to be sold to someone else. 


There were no other dresses left. Neiman Marcus apologized and refunded her. But, they said, there's nothing else they can do. 


Hopeless and frustrated, Ashley went into the Gee Thanks! FB group to share the tale with the community. 


72 hours later, a wedding dress miracle happened. This episode tells the story.

Ep 110: Adventures in Autism and Lash Serum with Megan Carranza
1:09:02

My friend Megan Carranza joins us today to talk about her podcast, Adventures In Autism. Megan started AiA in 2017 after her son Logan received an autism diagnosis at age 4. At the time, Megan couldn’t find any podcasts that weren’t hosted by doctors or therapists. Those were of course invaluable, but she wanted a community of parents just like her. So she created one herself. 


Megan is amazing, and she is also the younger sister of my friend Melissa, who you may remember from IG stories and $2 Thursdays as my brave and wonderful friend who was diagnosed with brain cancer in May 2020. We get an update on her as well!!


And of course, because this IS Gee Thanks and Megan IS an esthetician, she brought skincare recs in the form of an exfoliant and a lash serum that she swears is a game changer.


As Megan mentioned, her podcast is not just for people with autism or people who love people with autism. It’s for everyone, and it’s a great learning tool especially if you are looking to learn more about autism or help your kids learn more about their friends or classmates who have autism or who are autistic (however they identify!). “We can always use more allies,” Megan said.

Ep 107: Casey Johnston Wants To Help You Be A Swole Woman
39:18

Casey Johnston AKA Swole Woman is back to put us in our damn place this January. Casey created a program called Couch to Barbell that teaches any and every BODY how to pick things up and put them down, no matter how much those things weigh. I, for one, would love to learn how to not lift with my knees or back or whatever. Whatever is the wrong way, I want to learn how not to do that. I love having a conversation about bodies and exercise that has nothing to do with aesthetics or size.

Ep 105: A Masterclass On Solo Hosting With Kate Kennedy
1:16:41

Happy 2022! I am thinking about new things I can do with this podcast. Is it: more episodes? More mini episodes? A rotating small cast of recurring guest hosts? Call in episodes? Having listeners on the show? Weirdly, a lot of people said I should do some solo episodes talking about a product or two each week. I am super down for that, but it also makes me extremely nervous! So I called my friend Kate Kennedy of Be There In Five and asked her if she’d share some solo podcasting tips with me. I remain still overwhelmed but less overwhelmed than before!

Ep 99: My Sister Made Me Buy It...Made! Me! Buy It!
1:02:14

Sarah from @My.Sister.Made.Me.Buy.It is here for the most refreshing conversation about shopping, grief, the bald eagle obsession of the 90s (who remembers? People were OBSESSED?!), and so much more. Also: JOMO, ADHD brain, seating anxiety, and a really good hair repair system. 


More than anything, this episode felt like a really fun yet ~super healing~ therapy session, which both Sarah and I were like, is this too much? But honestly, if you can’t handle us at our too much, you don’t deserve us at our shopping links. So this is Gee Thanks! (Caroline and Sarah’s version).


Also, please, please! Follow Sarah and Missy because oh man if you think Gee Thanks! Makes you wanna go shopping? OOO BOY: https://www.instagram.com/my.sister.made.me.buy.it/?hl=en

Ep 98: Tubing Mascara and Christmas Trees with Alison Rosen
1:07:18

I LEARNED WHAT A TUBING MASCARA WAS. Alison Rosen is your (my) new best friend! It’s her podcast but it’s also a true statement. As I was listening back on this episode for editing I was like JFC, Caroline, if you love New York so much why don’t you just marry it! I am sorry it always comes up. 


But anyway: ALISON! She’s here to talk about her Balsam Hill Christmas Tree, sandwiches, mascara, and so much more. She’s also lived in LA for a long time and has never gone on a hike, which is so inspiring to me. She teaches me about tubing mascara and I teach her about evergreen scented candles and my favorite new Facebook group.

Ep 97: Influenced by/with Lindsay Silberman
1:02:54

Hotel Lobby Candle founder and influencer Lindsay Silberman videos in to talk about what it’s like to have the “i-word” as a job title, how she created HLC during the pandemic, and the bra her boobs can’t live without. We also get into jeans, bodysuits, and how she tried really hard to take a break from her phone on her trip to Bora Bora. If you don’t follow Lindsay, you are missing out on one of my favorite follows of 2021!

Special Bonus Ep: Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica (with Nora McInerny)
57:03

No new episode of Gee Thanks! this week because Nora McInerny and I are: a) in Las Vegas, together, writing and working and peeing our pants laughing and b) we really wanted to share an episode of our new project, a Patreon podcast called NOBODY ASKED where we revisit the early 2000s reality television shows that shaped our lives (and pee our pants laughing).


SUBSCRIBE HERE! www.patreon.com/geethanksandfriends 


We start with Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. This is an abridged version of our first episode of the show — the unedited, ad-free version is about 40 minutes longer and is on Patreon. Part II of our Newlyweds exploration is there too. This weekend we will dive into a much-requested revisit of Rich Girls, and we will record it IRL. 


Gee Thanks! will be back next Friday with guest Grace Farris, who you can follow on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/coupdegracefarris but I have a feeling you’re probably following her already.

RERUN! Ep 33: Flipping Clothes with Tonette of Farewell Exchange
1:12:00

***RERUN!*** I could not pull a new episode out of myself this week so I am replaying a really fun one from last summer! Tonette Griffin is an event producer by day and by night she has made thousands of dollars reselling thrift store finds and discarded items on Poshmark. Now she’s here to tell us all of her secrets! 


Since she came on the podcast in July 2020 she has launched FAREWELL EXCHANGE, where you can donate clothes to be sold to those who want them (kind of like a cooler Goodwill, but none of the clothes go to landfills!) https://www.farewellexchange.com/


(Follow Gee Thanks! on Insta: www.instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpod


From the items that sell best on the app, to curating “Trash-ures” from her neighborhood, to tips and tricks, Tonette is a genius.

A Quick Note About The Mini Episodes!
2:03

Hey Geezers! I know what you're thinking — is it Friday already? No! It's Thursday! Sorry! but I wanted to update you guys on what's going on with our mini episodes. 


Jackie and I have had the best time recording these episodes -- in fact, we've had so much fun, we launched a Patreon together! But between our own shows, the minis, and the Patreon, we feared that something would get lost along the way and decided it was time to take a hiatus from doing the minis to focus on Season 1 of Just One Episode. 


Just One Episode is what happens when Jackie and I launch a brand new podcast...every week. 


Think new theme song, new cover art, and a new topic....every single Wednesday. Members of the Mountain Dew Producers Circle tier give us some of our best ideas (well they give us THEIR best ideas, and we just execute) — thanks Jessica and Christina for our last two episodes, by the way!


Right now and for a limited time the $2 Palette Patrons level will give you access to one episode of Just One Episode: Our Spoiler Alert show. Come on in, check it out, and if you love it, you can upgrade to the Mountain Dew Producers Circle at any time. 


We're having so much fun doing this show and we hope you join us at Patreon.com/JustOneEpisode. 


Your money could be spent anywhere and we so appreciate that you are choosing to spend it with us to help us keep creating.


I am so excited to meet you all back here tomorrow for a new ep of Gee Thanks, Just Bought It! with special guest Kate Kennedy of Be There In Five. See you then and don't forget to join us on Instagram at @geethanksjustboughtitpod and in the Gee Thanks Facebook group, where you can get recommendations from other listeners, and give recommendations of your own.


Love you all, and thank you for listening.

Our Last Mini Ep 12: Measure Your Life In Minis
33:52

**ANNOUNCEMENT: This will be the last mini for awhile! We’re taking a break to focus on Natch, Gee Thanks! and our Patreon, Just One Episode: https://www.patreon.com/justoneepisode**


If we could only sit in a room and record together with no other obligations for the rest of our lives, we would! We are so appreciative of the support of everyone who has been on this ride with us, especially those who gave $2 on the Palette Patrons tier with nothing in return. 


To say thank you to the PPs we've opened up SPOILER ALERT (our third Just One Episode episode) for them. We said we'd open up the first episode but honestly we just love the third episode so much. 


And if you’d like to preview what Just One Episode is all about, we’re keeping that $2 tier open for you too! For a limited time, you will be able to access Just One Episode 3: SPOILER ALERT for $2/month. $8 gives you access to everything and you can upgrade anytime.


This isn't goodbye, it's just see you on the Patreon! We’d love to have you!

 

Measure your life in love,

Caroline and Jackie

Mini Ep 11: What's In Our Bags?
37:38

We launched a Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/justoneepisode 


Just One Episode drops weekly to subscribers. The best way we can explain it? Imagine if Jackie and I launched a new podcast every week, and then never did another episode of that podcast again. But then next week, there’d be a new podcast, with a new theme song and new topics. Patreon subscribers aka The Mountain Dew Producers Circle (#notspon) get access to every episode, plus bonus content, photos of behind the scenes during mini recording sessions, and a secret instagram account. We want to see you there! (There’s also a $2 Palette Patrons level if you don’t need a new podcast but you want to support the minis!)


***


On this mini, we go through our bags, and the exercise reveals a lot about Jackie. Like, it’s scary.

I joined Nicole Cruz’s FB group, Joyful Eating For Your Family, in an effort to reparent myself in regard to my relationship with food, and I am excited to say that over the last year I have learned SO much.

Kristen Tomlan is the founder and CEO of DŌ, the world’s first edible cookie dough confectionery. I eat cookie dough whenever I can. We already have a lot in common. Kristen brings the “magic towel” to the pod (wait til you hear about her daughter’s adventures with spaghetti — no match for the magic towel!), and Caroline and Kristen try to figure out why everyone in their 30s is shopping at Abercrombie again. I mean really, what's next, roll-on glitter? Pogs? Do I need to go dust off the Beanie Babies???

Replay Ep 27: Very Visible Headphones With Nora McInerny
1:15:07

4/2/2021 Note: Taking a mental health reset this week so replaying one of my fav convos with someone I now consider a great friend!! Nora McInerny is hot and tall and hysterical and she joins us today because I am trying to be her third husband. I have maybe never laughed harder in my life as we recorded this and Nora is a woman who has made a living out of talking about grief. Many of you told me Nora was a national treasure. Many of you...are correct.

Nora and I discuss literally who can even say, because I blacked out while recording this and all I remember is cackling for over an hour! 


Her product pick is a good antidote to the airpod life, and I am starting to suspect all of the best authors are working out before they sit down to write, which means I will never write another book again.

Ep 67: Plants, YA Books, and Pretty Little Liars with Jessica Murnane
1:16:03

Jessica Murnane, author of One Part Plant and the upcoming Know Your Endo, joins us to talk about gardening, Pretty Little Liars, and the best book she read this year. We also talk about the shows you can “watch with your phone” (and maybe more importantly, the ones you can’t), and why we need to scrap the idea of “guilty pleasure chicklit” entirely.

Replay: Ep 18 with Jia Tolentino
57:36

Hi Geezers! Caroline is off this week, but please enjoy a replay of her chat with the amazing Jia Tolentino from March, 2020.


Jia Tolentino of The New Yorker is here today to talk about her favorite bra, even though no one is wearing bras anymore because we have nowhere to wear them. She and Caroline also discuss the plight of boob measurements and also how we’re handling quarantining. Life is very normal, of course! Why do you ask?



Very important for when we get back to the world, Jia’s favorite bra is currently on sale and the Natori website is offering 25% off your order this week: https://fave.co/2vQgBAf I recommend getting it in lots of colors because you’re gonna wanna be known as “fun bra gal” when we can go outside again. ALSO, when we can go outside again, New Yorkers MUST run, NOT WALK, to Nordstrom on 57th and go see Bo in the bra department.


In a more serious tone, I hope you are all hanging in there and giving yourself some space to be a little “off.” If you aren’t listening to Doree and Kate’s new podcast, HERE FOR YOU, it’s a great way to both acknowledge the state of the world while also not overwhelming yourself (as I tend to do). Listen here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/here-for-you/id1503438711

Ep 66: Getting ~*so cOzY*~ with Sophia Carter-Kahn
1:16:09

She’s All Fat host Sophia Carter-Kahn joins us to talk about getting Ariana Grande-level cozy and off-brand Jibbitz for Crocs. We also go back in time and relive some hilarious middle school nostalgia (first slow dance song, anyone?), and the kind of people we were in high school. FYI: Our recording cuts off abruptly because Mercury was in Retrograde. But just know Sophia and I could’ve talked 4EVA.

CW for some body and fitness talk (addressing the culture but getting into some of our issues). That stands for content warning, btw! Not COUP WARNING, but you know what *LOOKS DIRECTLY AT CAMERA*. 


Casey Johnston aka @SwoleWoman is here and we’re getting INTO it about all of that January “new year new me” BS especially as it pertains to our bodies and exercise goals. This was recorded on Monday, so you can tell we have a little energy in our voices. Now it is Friday, and that energy is gone.

Ep 52: Saving $$ and Buying Desks with Bola Sokunbi of Clever Girl Finance
1:05:33

Once upon a time in January 2020 we talked about making this year the year of saving money in a smart way. 2020 had other plans lmao, but you guys, 2021 is still ours! Clever Girl Finance CEO Bola Sukunbi is here to talk about the basics of finance, including some truly jaw-dropping student loan payment facts that made me gasp out loud. She’s also talking about the furniture she’s buying for her kids, and what we can do to make 2021 a better year for savings.

SHE’S BACK! Laura Wittig from Brightly.eco is back to talk about ways to have a more eco-friendly holiday this year.

Ep 47: Amelia Diamond
1:17:03

We’ve recorded more episodes in COVID times than in non-COVID times for awhile now so this is an episode where we just check in with each other (featuring the wonderful writer Amelia Diamond!). It’s October. How are we doing? (Insert Dorinda’s “Not Well, B*tch” gif here). We talk about how we’re getting work done (and how we’re not), the things we miss, the weirdness we feel. And yes, we talk about products too: Amelia brings her PedEgg and then we wax lyrical about body hair removal for awhile (get it? Wax?). 


I hope you guys are doing okay, too. It’s been like, a really long time. And this still just really really sucks! But hopefully this episode makes you laugh, because we laughed a lot while recording it.

The airdate of this episode is June 19th aka Juneteenth, the day that marks the official end of slavery in the United States. Unfortunately, Black people in 2020 are anything but liberated in America, which is why we all must take on the fight for their true freedom by dismantling the systems that keep them oppressed. 


If you’re looking for Juneteenth reading, watching or listening, start with Vann R. Newkirk III’s 2017 essay for The Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/06/juneteenth-celebration-police-brutality-justice/530898/ This essay was written by Newkirk in response to the back-to-back murders of Philando Castile in St. Paul, MN, and Charleena Lyles in Seattle, WA. Both were shot to death by police officers. You will find in this essay many of the common threads of conversations we are still having three years later, and you will find that these conversations have been going on for centuries before we began to truly listen.

To everyone who RSVP'd to my June 3rd Zoom with Sam Irby, we postponed and we promise we’ll figure out a time this summer to get online and hang out with everyone. Here is the email I sent out to all of the attendees: https://www.geethanksjustboughtit.com/blog/got-a-question-for-samantha-irby-ask-her-live-on-june-3rd-at-8pm-est  and it has action items you can take TODAY to show up for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Ep 27: Nora McInerny
1:15:39

Nora McInerny is hot and tall and hysterical and she joins us today because I am trying to be her third husband. I have maybe never laughed harder in my life as we recorded this and Nora is a woman who has made a living out of talking about grief. Many of you told me Nora was a national treasure. Many of you...are correct.

Nora and I discuss literally who can even say, because I blacked out while recording this and all I remember is cackling for over an hour! 


Her product pick is a good antidote to the airpod life, and I am starting to suspect all of the best authors are working out before they sit down to write, which means I will never write another book again.

If you haven’t heard me evangelize the brilliantly beachy books of Elin Hilderbrand, you are not paying attention. But now you’re going to have to, because Elin joins us today! Her 24th novel, 28 Summers, is out June 16! If you haven’t read your first Elin yet, what are you waiting for!

Ep 25: Marissa Mullen
39:51

Marissa Mullen aka @ThatCheesePlate, @CheeseByNumbers, and @ThatCheeseClass (www.instagram.com/thatcheeseplate) is here to talk about, um, duh, cheese. Her new book, That Cheese Plate Will Change Your Life, just came out and even though we know cheese plates are way more fun to make, when, like, you can have friends over, cheese plates for one are encouraged. ALL CHEESE PLATES CAN BE PERSONAL CHEESE PLATES IF YOU DREAM BIG ENOUGH.

Marissa tells us about two product recs: One is a great gift and one is a big influencer-y secret. Also, wheel of brie + cookie cutter = you look very talented in the kitchen. And we all know what I am not, right? (You all do a group shout: “talented in the kitchen!”) That’s right.

Ep 21: Tom Everett Scott
39:53

Just two weeks ago I tweeted about watching “That Thing You Do” for the first time and developing my first celebrity crush on Tom Everett Scott and now here we are: Tom Everett Scott is on Gee Thanks, and he brought products to share and I tried to not get too giggly during our Skype call (I failed). Let this be a lesson to you all! The celebrities are home and they are as bored as we are. Call them up!


Follow along with recs (and share your own via DM) on the “Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!” Instagram: www.instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpod


Tom Everett Scott and I discuss phone accessories for the car, alternatives to coffee cups, my inflatable hot tub that I’m sure really impressed him, and our mutual disappointment in In-N-Out’s fries.

Rachel Wilkerson Miller aka THE REWM aka creator of justgoodshit.com (https://www.justgoodshit.com/) aka the deputy editor of VICE Life comes to us with a first ever BOOK recommendation for Gee Thanks in “Home Comforts” by Cheryl Mendelson. Rachel loves it so much she has it in hardback and on Kindle. I found my copy for $6 at The Last Book Store in Los Angeles back in February! Plus, I brought my new fav white tee!

We’re spending a lot of time at home right now, and Rachel says this book is like a bible for the care and keeping of our houses. Also, apparently our houses are death traps? That’s cool, is there anything that isn’t a death trap these days? No? Amazing. Love that for us.

Ep 18: Jia Tolentino
57:48

Jia Tolentino of The New Yorker is here today to talk about her favorite bra, even though no one is wearing bras anymore because we have nowhere to wear them. She and Caroline also discuss the plight of boob measurements and also how we’re handling quarantining. Life is very normal, of course! Why do you ask?


Follow along with recs (and share your own via DM) on the “Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!” Instagram: www.instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpod


Very important for when we get back to the world, Jia’s favorite bra is currently on sale and the Natori website is offering 25% off your order this week: https://fave.co/2vQgBAf I recommend getting it in lots of colors because you’re gonna wanna be known as “fun bra gal” when we can go outside again. ALSO, when we can go outside again, New Yorkers MUST run, NOT WALK, to Nordstrom on 57th and go see Bo in the bra department.


In a more serious tone, I hope you are all hanging in there and giving yourself some space to be a little “off.” If you aren’t listening to Doree and Kate’s new podcast, HERE FOR YOU, it’s a great way to both acknowledge the state of the world while also not overwhelming yourself (as I tend to do).

Ep 17: Lisa Tozzi
44:31

NOTE: We recorded this episode back in January before Coronavirus became A Thing. I hope this episode brings you joy and a little bit of a break from all of the news. Stay safe and sanitized. Love you guys.


We’re talking JEANS and GENES and SUNSCREENS with my gal, Lisa Tozzi aka Tozzi. Not only is she the managing editor for news and operations at The Markup (https://themarkup.org/), she’s also just...the best? We love Tozzi. OH WAIT BEFORE WE GO FURTHER—


Follow along with recs (and share your own via DM) on the “Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!” Instagram: www.instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpod


Okay so we’re talking about JEANS first. We both love a Madewell jean and I talk about my newfound dupe for $150 Madewell jeans but there’s a caveat to the dupe, and I give you some tips about dealing with that caveat in this episode. (Also did you know I married the HEIR to Madewell? Okay that’s not technically true, there is no money involved and I don’t get a discount (boo) but it’s also kind of true. See here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/dannosowitz/how-madewell-bought-and-sold-my-familys-history). 


Other things Tozzi and I get to in this episode: the deep lines on my neck that I swear to G appeared on New Year’s Day out of nowhere (at the time I hadn’t found a good product to help those lines out but those of you who follow the pod on Insta know I have recently found one!), Tozzi’s hatred of taking pics of herself, the $50 miracle for raw winter skin, and so so much more. This is also the first episode where our awesome editor Veronica was able to insert a song so please enjoy that moment. WE ALSO TALK ABOUT SUNSCREEN. ALL CAPS!! SUNSCREEN.

NOTE: This episode was recorded between 6pm-7pm EST on March 11th, 2020 — before Trump’s Euro travel address, the NBA cancellation, Tom Hanks announced that he tested positive for COVID19, and Sarah Palin appearing on the Masked Singer.


Follow along with recs (and share your own via DM) on the “Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!” Instagram: www.instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpod


Influencer marketer Arielle Calderon joins us on “Gee Thanks” today to talk about PhoneSoap, a phone sterilizer that a PR company sent her way back in the day and that she happened to find deep in her closet a week and a half ago. Since we’re all staying sanitized and socially distant, remember that your phone is probably super super gross, and you should clean it as often as you wash your hands. They are about $80 and on backorder til April (as I write this), but I bought one anyway because you know what? This week has been eye-opening and maybe I should just be cleaning things more. 


I also need you all to follow Arielle on Instagram right now: https://www.instagram.com/ariellesays/?hl=en


We’re also discussing how we’re feeling emotionally about the state of the world (spoiler: not super amazing tbh), and ways we can try to feel better (spoiler: doing what we can to help others). 


Speaking of helping others, you guys have already done that. This week, so many of you stepped up and donated small amounts towards a pot for the Y, the JCC and for Meals On Wheels, which will serve as lifelines and lifesavers for our most vulnerable and at-risk neighbors. As I am writing these show notes on March 12th, we’ve PASSED our $5000 goal! If you still want to donate a buck or two, you can Venmo me @socarolinesays. I am really proud of this community we’re building together, and that we can both enjoy buying things like ~*~Diamond Dazzle Stiks~*~ and know when it’s time to put our money towards a more important cause. Hang in there, stay safe, and check in with each other. 


ALSO. AL. SO. We talk about how all of our parents (the boomers) are weirdly flying too close to the virus. Anyone else feel like they’re in a true Freaky Friday and playing the parent role?

Ep 14: Harlow and Ilana Wiles
30:54

Age doesn’t matter but it’s a big deal that this week GTJBI welcomes its youngest guest ever...because she’s 7-years-old. Harlow Wiles is in second grade and on the weekends you can find her in the kitchen baking everything from pumpkin bread to cupcakes. But her specialty is pancakes—she charges $1 for one pancake and $5 for two; we love a businesswoman—so she stopped by the studio with her Insta-famous Mom, Ilana (@MommyShorts) to give us some pancake tips and dish on her favorite tv show as of right now, The Property Brothers. And she does NOT know what their actual names are, so do NOT ask, okay?


Follow “Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!” On Insta: www.instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpod 


Harlow’s mom, Ilana, is the best “mommy blogger” I follow, despite my not having kids, and I have been following a lot of MBs for a long time. She has a lot of good intel on how #sponcon works and how she turned a job layoff into a living 10 years ago. She also brought her recommendation for dry shampoo, and it was one I had never even thought about before.

Erica is at Disney World as this episode is airing because she’s running the half marathon there, a thing that I think I would love to do one day but definitely will not. Oh right, we also talk about running. You’re gonna love it!

Karen and Caroline get INTO it about: Dyson Vacs, Kickstarter scams, email hacks and Karen’s product pick: a MOFT laptop stand that sticks to the bottom of your laptop and pops up to give you ergonomic goodness whenever you feel like it. One of our ACAST producers, Tim, literally bought it in the room as we were recording the episode.

Ep 9: Hitha Palepu
27:52

Have I told you guys my big shameful secret about how I’m the WORST PACKER EVER? It takes me no less than four hours to pack for a weekend away and yet I still end up with 9 tee-shirts, one pair of pants, no socks, no pajamas, a toothbrush with no toothpaste and one shoe. Luckily I have the perfect person to call in a travel emergency—Hitha Palepu! Hitha Palepu is an investor and author of How To Pack: Travel Smart For Any Trip. She shares 5 smart reads every weekday on Instagram and on her weekly newsletter, and she'll be launching her podcast, 1 Smart Thing, next month! You can follow her on Instagram @HithaPalepu.


Hitha, who literally wrote the book on packing, joins us this week to talk about packing cubes, the fool-proof way to make sure you remember underwear on your next trip, her favorite planner AND the royals (or the not-royal-anymores!). Also, PILL BOTTLES AS THE NUMBER ONE TRAVEL ACCESSORY. JUST LISTEN, OKAY?


This convo was so delightful that we had to essentially edit it down from, like, two hours to our regularly scheduled 30 minutes. Should we release “Gee Thanks” B-Sides in a few years?

Ep 8: Reyhan Harmanci
32:50

Welcome to Reyhan Harmanci! Reyhan is the deputy head of programming at Gimlet and joins us a mere two days before giving birth to her daughter, Lois. (Mom and baby are doing great!). Reyhan has always wanted to be the kind of gal who carried a leather bag but she had a real “know thyself” moment when she purchased her product pick. Caroline evangelizes her favorite skincare product from Trader Joe’s and we learn who cares the most about skincare in Reyhan’s house.

Ep 7: Anne Helen Petersen

Author and BuzzFeed culture reporter Anne Helen Petersen — who moved to Montana from NYC three years ago — joins up for a very important discussion about the things we do and buy for our beloved animal bffs. From her must-have product pick to Caroline’s experience with pet insurance, somehow they land on...dog raves? Also, it’s January, so let’s talk about therapy lamps. Also, AHP tells us about a magical place called DOG. ISLAND.

Why do all gift guides for men want you to buy them whiskey ice cubes and golf stuff?

It’s our first episode ever! Welcome to chef and cookbook author Alison Roman (Dining In, Nothing Fancy) whose passion for her product pick almost has Caroline convinced she may be able to cook something without messing it up. Then Caroline takes the wheel and tries to convince Alison that a weighted blanket will help her sleep better at night. And then they also talk about something that keeps getting advertised to Caroline on Instagram...the “portable crock pot” for office lunches you don’t have to stand up for.
