Episode #9×13: ‘Barbie’ is Hitting Us Right in the Nostalgia, Artemis II Moon Mission

  • Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real talk!
  • We’re Andrew-less this week, but it’s ok, Pam and Laura canceled him temporarily.
  • We chat about the new Barbie trailer that took the world by storm, and use this as a jumping off point to talk childhood nostalgia and what it means to see it represented on the big screen.
  • But first, some men are triggered by the viral marketing highlighting all the Barbies’ high-profile jobs and noting that all the Kens are “just Ken.” Cry about it!
  • How did we play with Barbies as kids? Confessions of orchestrating Barbie sexy time.
  • Everyone had a jank Barbie they colored on and gave haircuts to, right?
  • In light of our girls’ episode this week, we host an AMA for our Patreon supporters, and answer questions about best and worst dating experiences, favorite makeup and clothing brands, and how we feel about aging (spoiler: we’re leaning into it).
  • How have Pam and Laura handled workplace misogyny?
  • We’re also hype about the crew announcement for the upcoming Artemis II mission – the first woman and black man will be making a trip around the moon in 2024!
  • This inspires us to chat about our first childhood dream jobs.
  • This week’s recommendations will keep you fresh! Lume Deodorant (Laura) and Raw Sugar’s multi-miracle leave-in conditioner & heat protectant (Pam).

And in this week’s installment of After Dark, available on Patreon:

  • Spoiler warning! Love is Blind season 4 finale predictions and reactions to the current season’s cast. (Mostly trash.)
  • And we’ve got some questions from our AMA we saved to cover because they’re a little ~spicy~ for primetime.
  • If Andrew were straight, would we date him?!
