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!
Happy Mother’s Day, y’all! This week we take some time to thank all the mamas out there. Mothers can be biological, surrogate, adopted, chosen, or any other way you can think of someone becoming a MOTHER. Ross and Patrick start by celebrating the women who birthed them into existence, Betty Ann and Jane. Listen in as these two moms make guest appearances on this week’s episode as Ross and Patrick make their mother’s day phone calls. Come share in the love! Matriarchy Now!
Ladies and gentlemen put your hands up and your dollars down for Nefertiti!!! She is a fellow wardrobe stylist and a good “Judy” of Ross.’ Take a listen as she explains her love for beauty, makeup, and glamour. And boy bands. And Selena. And RuPaul’s Drag Race. And Motley Crue, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Tupac, and Murder She Wrote, and Columbo. She’s a complicated woman, ok? She’s got taste and opinions and she’s not afraid to tell you all about it. Nef has come to the Who Cares recording studio to spill the T, and throw the shade (when warranted). Enjoy!
Ross and Patrick are recording in bisolation again! Do you wish they had a guest? Well they don’t, so get over it. Separated for a week, they’re using this episode to hear about each other’s respective adventures. Patrick was on the road in New England and Ross was hard at work in Bushwick. Join the gruesome twosome in the “studio” and find out how their doing post “Argument” Episode Heard ‘Round The World.
We totally and absolutely care about Justin and Caitlin. This hilarious couple met in the comedy rooms of NYC and fell for each other while doing karaoke. They’ve lived in Queens and Brooklyn and over the last couple years have dealt with some real “Life on Life’s Terms” shit, writing material about it and supporting each other all the while. They’re intelligent, incredibly funny, emotionally open, and they’re devoted fans of 90 Day Fiancé. What more could you want?!

Finally! Danielle, a virgo, promptly arrives on the podcast and spills all the T. She is not only a teacher, wife, and mother, but she’s also a well read pop culture queen. Join Ross, Patrick, and Danielle as they take a walk down memory lane and discuss how this chosen family truly began and withstood early sobriety in the hipster capital of the world, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Despite Ross’ hatred for pop punk, love still thrived.
To say that this woman is inspiring is an understatement! Maryam Ajayi is a trailblazer in the wellness world. Specializing in reiki and breath work, she’s working hard to make healing and self care inclusionary and accessible. Never shying away from challenging conversation, she has written thought provoking pieces for medium.com and has begun holding monthly salons to discuss diversity in wellness. Maryam also spills the “T” on her former life as a republican and how she plans to bring about change in the business world through intuitive energy work. Ross and Patrick thought about asking Maryam to create a thrupple but instead just decided to have an incredibly interesting chat. Join them, won’t you?
