Joe and Laura Talk to Spencer Gibb

August 19, 2019

In addition to Laura’s really big hat, Austin musician, Spencer Gibb, is on the pod! Spencer discusses his unique childhood and making friends as the son of one of the most famous musicians in the world, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees. Other topics include “Cats,” space jizz, and doo-doo-feces. Spencer describes a couple wild dance-floor encounters. Joe alllllmost tells Laura he loves her. And, through expert interview techniques, Joe and Laura extract Wikipedia-worthy information from their very special guest.

Check out Spencer's Wikipedia here:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spencer_Gibb

Joe and Laura Talk on the Phone

Joe and Laura Talk on the Phone

August 5, 2019

Believe it or not, Joe and Laura have never talked on the phone. So when Joe feels a little under the weather, he takes a new (somewhat taboo) step in their growing friendship and gives Laura a ring. Joe helps Laura interpret a dream about a woman named Maria WITH SHRIMP FOR EYES, while Laura helps Joe interpret his dream about a warm, squishy hug from Oprah. Toilet flushes, awkward pauses, and a bit of static all flow together in a beautiful sonic landscape that is the modern telephone conversation.

Joe and Laura Meet a Dominatrix

Joe and Laura Meet a Dominatrix

July 29, 2019

Professional dominatrix, Sam, teaches Joe and Laura the “ins and outs” of BDSM. How do you make friends in the dungeon? What’s a “fart session?” Have you been a bad little boy? Mind the mistress, and you just might learn a thing or two about the kinky underground.

Joe and Laura Run Out of Things to Say

Joe and Laura Run Out of Things to Say

July 8, 2019

Joe and Laura have said it all. Yep, they’re finally out of things to say… until they aren’t. Joe is still HIGHLY concerned about grackles (aka “demon birds”) and has researched the legality of MURDERING THEM. Also, prepare yourselves for a good fifteen minutes of accent-work and some light Independence Day banter.

Joe and Laura Debate

Joe and Laura Debate

July 1, 2019

The Democratic debates have begun, and Joe and Laura are going head to head about the issues that matter most to you. Climate change? No, of course not. Immigration? Are you kidding me? Healthcare? Get outta here! When the hosts of Heavy Friending debate, it’s about much more than topics as simple as voting rights and gun control. Instead, Joe and Laura are talking vegetables… perhaps, the most controversial veggie of them all: THE BRUSSELS SPROUT. This fast-paced battle of wit (moderated by the always impartial Laura Lee Bishop) will leave audiences questioning everything. On what side of the sprout will you land?

Joe and Laura Get Childish at #ChildsPlayMovie

Joe and Laura Get Childish at #ChildsPlayMovie

June 24, 2019

"You are a child's play thing." This is a quote from a movie where the toys are alive. And while a sequel to that movie debuted this weekend there was another film involving toys becoming sentient: Child's Play. Joe and Laura got to check out the brand new reboot at an early screening. They wore fun outfits.

Joe and Laura Do ASMR

Joe and Laura Do ASMR

June 3, 2019

Pop in your earbuds, get those tight little buns in bed, and listen to the soothing voices of Joe Barlow and Laura Lee Bishop as they ASMR you to tingly paradise. Sure, Joe and Laura don't really know what ASMR is, but does anyone? Hear them whisper naughty secrets and crunch tasty snacks. Laura's dog, Ruger Elizabeth Taylor, even makes an audio appearance. This week, Joe is mad about climate change (per usual), Laura talks in great detail about her period (again, nothing new there), but most importantly, they whisper a lot. 

What is ASMR? Autonomous sensory meridian response is a calming, pleasurable feeling often accompanied by a tingling sensation. This tingle is said to originate in a person’s head and spread to the spine (and sometimes the limbs) in response to stimulation. The stimuli that trigger ASMRvary from person to person. Some of the most common ones include whispers, white noise, lip smacking, having a person’s complete attention (as in having one’s hair cut by a hairdresser), as well as brushing, chewing, tapping, scratching, and crinkling.

Joe and Laura Check In

Joe and Laura Check In

May 27, 2019

It's been too long since Joe and Laura had a good ol' fashioned talk (2 episodes ago), and it's time to reconnect. Joe wants abs; Laura continues cat-fishing potential partners for Joe on OkCupid; and they absolutely do NOT record a Patreon commercial featuring exciting new characters like Tony, a man living in the bird's nest who resists the temptation to do drugs.
