    Great episode! What was the name of the beauty company Jenn gets everything from now? I am intrigued, but I couldn’t catch the name entirely.

    of course – a great podcast episode.
    i had to add- that story about how those 2 women didn’t even respond to you Kimfrance when you asked them about that other person – so upsetting! yes, that’s the kind of incident that makes a person question their city.

    As usual, this week’s EIF podcast was fun and interesting. Kim’s musings about moving to the country and thoughts about making new friends resonated with me. After living all my life in big cities I moved to a small Rocky Mountain resort town at 62. It’s dog heaven, being surrounded by natural beauty never gets old, I love living in a spacious house and best of all, I’ve forged great friendships. The road to finding those wasn’t smooth – along the way I edited some people from my life and was edited by others -but more than 10 years later my small but choice circle of friends is wonderful. I don’t miss being in a city, and, except during the pandemic, I go get a city fix when one is needed. When I contemplated the move a wise, older relative said, “When you look back you don’t regret the things you did, you regret what you didn’t do.”

    This episode was so eerily on point for my life. Last week I spent a whole walk venting to my husband about male billionaires, and wondering why they couldn’t be more like MacKenzie Scott. Hubby, great as he is, wasn’t sharing my RAGE. Also, we are moving upstate (Ulster), for many of the reasons expressed by Kim. And re: finding friends. Although I’m an introvert, I can turn into a human golden retriever when in new environments, and I’m sure that comes off as too much. ay ay ay. Thank you for all the laughs and relevant (to me) topics this week. I needed that. Happy 100th episode. Keep going, please! And also pls keep the blog going, as much as it may be hard for you to come up with fresh ideas, they are all the *freshest* to me!

    Kim, one of my pandemic hobbies is my search for the perfect sour candy. My favorite is Mike & Ike’s Super Sour Mega Mix. It has 10 sour flavors, all are, in fact, sour and all 10 flavors are really good!

    Loved this am’s podcast. You two have the best chemistry. I really agree with bashing billionaires a la Elizabeth Warren, but as a Bernie Sanders supporter,I feel compelled to remind all that Bernie has been saying this forever and more widely. He is also almost single-handedly helping the labor movement. I bow down to Bernie.

    150% on board with your Elizabeth Warren admiration!!
    And CONGRATS to Jenn on finishing her book — what an achievement!
    I love you both and your podcast, even if you don’t share my fondness for Ben Stiller (aside from Severance) in the previous episode. My reasons for my Ben Stiller love — nobody is better at portraying the gnawing resentment of a mediocre (but smart) loser or struggling (but smart) midlifer dude or neglected sibling than him (Greenberg, While We’re Young, The Royal Tenenbaums). He’s just esp good in the Noah Baumbach movies — The Meyerovitz Stories. He makes poetry out of middle-aged pain but he doesn’t glorify it like other actors might. As a director/writer, the first Zoolander is a classic. Reality Bites (while problematically superficial, it also remains a memorable Gen X time capsule). Best of all are Tropic Thunder and Severance. And last but not least, I find him to always be a good everyman leading man in stuff like Night at the Museum (movie would’ve been less watchable without him to ground it with another mediocre everyman role) or as some obnoxious bully role like in Dodgeball. Last but not least, there’s his iconic “Do it” bit in the otherwise mostly forgettable Starsky and Hutch reboot with Owen Wilson, resuscitated from The Ben Stiller Show (it featured Janeane Garafolo, Bob Odenkirk and Andy Dick! it had music from Dweezil Zappa, another Gen X time capsule).

      I appreciated this deep dive into the Ben Stiller canon!
