Even though Kelly, Ross, and Patrick have known each other for over a decade, this was definitely the most time they’ve ever spent together. Prior to recording this episode, Kelly put Peggy through two hours of her dog training paces. She’s the dog whisperer of Ross and Patrick’s dreams and is helping them turn their little Peggy right around. Goddess bless this woman. We swear she was not held hostage. Join us while she shares about career changes, trusting your gut, taking risks, and being a big ol’ dog nerd. They couldn’t have been happier to talk to this epic canine empath. Check out her incredible dog walking, training, and boarding business Hustle Pups NYC at www.hustlepupsnyc.com.
Cassandra Cushman is an actor. She’s a writer. A psychic, a witch, a healer. She’s so many things beyond this realm we can’t fit it all in this little paragraph. Take a listen as these three spirits connect on a multitude of levels and maybe life times! Whoa, man… One thing is for sure, Cassandra speaks Ross and Patrick’s language (and Peggy’s language too for that matter). She’s a highly attuned witch who is incredibly well versed in astrology with an MFA in acting. The Who Cares pod loves this lady so much that Ross and Patrick invited her to be a recurring part of the program. Don’t you want some astrological check-ins from the freaky witch herself? We knew it! (We read minds now.)
Ross, Patrick, and Peggy went upstate for a family wedding and Patrick’s 20 year high school reunion. Everyone came away from the weekend feeling emotionally hungover from the bittersweet highs and the stress-induced lows. Ross and Patrick balanced having a good time with their respective brands of generalized anxiety while Peggy exhausted herself from love, attention, and gnawing through her crate cover. What they thought would be a fun recap of the weekend turned into a much deeper conversation about love, partnership, and showing up for each other. Don’t you want to hear Ross and Patrick process their feelings more? We knew it!
Did you miss Ross and Patrick last week? They felt terrible that they didn’t record an episode for you. (Just tell them you missed them. They’re very sensitive and crave validation). Have no fear, they’re back and they recorded while driving upstate because vehicular multitasking is worth it for their fans. It’s you all who keep this empire running. The fans and Jesus. Mostly Jesus actually (Is anyone else watching ‘The Family’ on Netflix??). Anyway on this episode, R and P talk camping, 12 step programs, cults, and up tight neighbors. Cool, right?
Lindsay Goldwert is a journalist, podcaster, comedian, author, and all around fascinating human. She joins Ross and Patrick to discuss the exciting release of her first book, Bow Down: Lessons From Dominatrixes on How to Get Everything You Want. Listen as they dive into the taboo territories of sex and money and how empathy and empowerment are not mutually exclusive. Lindsay shares about the alpha females featured in her book and the incredible power of example Dominatrixes can be to women in all walks of life, not just the bedroom. So strap in and strap on because BDSM is a contact sport where you can learn a lot about yourself. Just be open to it, ok?
He’s our (self-proclaimed) #1 fan and newly appointed President of the Who Cares Fan Club. This week we welcome back Bro of the show Dave Martineau! He’s 31, he’s single, he’s in therapy, and he’s uncomfortable with his sister’s openness. Dave traveled to NYC for the weekend to bro down with his sis by going to karaoke, the beach, and watching a healthy dose of Xanax television (The Office). He regales Patrick and Ross with insane tales of online dating, and his plans to rescue dogs from negligent women via dating apps. Pop in your head phones, turn up the volume, and get your tinnitus pumping while your hosts give unsolicited advice to their numero uno.
This week Patrick and Ross catch up after being separated by The Road for four days. Ross experiences shades of single motherhood while Patrick was out performing at various breweries around the northeast trying to make enough money to feed his dog-ter back home. Listen in as the two share their respective adventures and discuss life ahead.
On their most revealing episode yet, Ross & Patrick discuss STI’s, non-monogamy, and sex in general. If you thought it was impossible for them to be even more transparent, take a listen as Ross shouts her truth from the rooftop while Patrick skittishly divulges his. With this podcast, they hope that by opening up more, they can promote more positive conversation around sexual health and relationships. Open your mind (and maybe your legs) to this week’s show!
Well last week they were being voyeurs at the dog park and now their sitting IN the dog park. Ross’ dreams finally came true… she wore Patrick down and got them a dog!!! Welcome Peggy, the adorable mutt to the Holbertineau family. Peggy came into their life as a foster from In Our Hands Rescue and she’s staying in their lives as their doghter. Ross and Patrick talk about how becoming dog owners has already begun to change their lives for the better and the unexpected. Peggy is a precious little girl who makes people smile wherever she goes. What were they supposed to do, not adopt a living breathing stuffed animal?! What are you, insane???
It’s time to talk about these god damn abortion bans. Predominantly conservative white male legislators across this country are making decisions about female bodies, and the hypocritical snow ball effect knows no bounds. Ross does some research on exactly what these laws mean and where they’re taking place, all while mocking these men and their terrible southern accents. The Who Cares duo hope that by using the small platform they have, they can at least spark conversation and let people know how they can take action. Ross is not interested in being “ofPatrick” and she hopes you feel the same. We’re in this together! Here are some links to a variety of articles and organizations that will keep you informed and tell you how you can make a difference. We love you, keep going!
