We’re back with an exciting new podcast! In this episode, we talk about the high-tech headphone cable clip Jen made with a pipe cleaner. Then, Jen tells the story of how she pitched an article to popular website xoJane (which was accepted). We’ve got a shiny new Internet connection but we aren’t entirely sure just how fast it is. But the big news in this episode is we finally talk about the legal matter we’ve been mentioning for months. Yes, we’re filing for bankruptcy and we give the long and sorted history of our financial woes since moving to California. In an attempt to finish things off with some humor, we talk about how Cards Against Humanity sold actual bullshit on Black Friday.
Welcome to our jam-packed 24th episode! In this edition, we discuss some recent run-ins with crazy people around town. Jen talks about her ongoing adventure with getting birth control from Planned Parenthood. We talk about how this year, we had our first-ever Thanksgiving at home with just the two of us. We read some listener feedback and we cover a story about how a backpack containing $100,000 was found at a Burger King. And more!
We’re going caffeine-free! Well, one of us is. And it’s making life… interesting. We cover our trip to BlizzCon 2014, where we attended the World of Podcasts event, met lots of cool people, attended Diablo panels and more. Jen even got to be part of the Tristram’s Got Talent contest, where she got to show off her voice-acting chops for some of the voice actors from the Diablo III video game. We’ve also got an update on the bank-fraud shenanigans that have been ongoing for the last couple months.
It’s a very special episode of Hyper Nonsense! We’re currently at Blizzcon 2014 but the pods keep rollin’. We’ve got a compilation show for you, made of clips from the original version of Hyper Nonsense. We talk about how good customer service is like sex. I share some stories about meeting crazy people in public and how abandoned clothing items are probably portkeys. Then, we revisit a news story about a radio DJ who quit her job in a colorful way, while she was on the air.
We’ll have this down to a science by episode 250.
Hyper Nonsense: It’s a verbal bullet train that’s probably gonna end up in a wreck.

In this episode, we learn about how the joints in Jen’s body can predict the weather. Speaking of which, it’s rained here for the first time in six months! We’v got stories about how people gleefully reacted to the rain (on Halloween no less). One of our neighbors got a new house and the whole teardown/buildup of that is making us sick! We introduce an exciting new segment called Uterus Talk. In the inaugural edition of Uterus Talk, Jen recounts her adventures in trying to make an appointment with Planned Parenthood. We respond to some listener feedback. Then, we round out the show with a news article about a woman who received the wrong sperm.
We’re Yosemite’ing it on today’s episode! Sometimes, audio mixers are complicated and the buttons don’t always work like you’d expect (and we spend way too much time breaking down why). We’ve officially changed our format to a tech show. We hope you enjoy all of the Apple talk! We have (not much of) an update on our legal situation. We cover the saga of a defective air purifier we recently purchased. Also, after installing an aerial TV antenna, we’ve got a whopping 17 channels. Now we’re constantly distracted by TV shows. We finished the show with a news item about a haunted house with a real, scary dead guy.
We’re asking the hard-hitting questions on this episode. Like: How is salted caramel a “fall thing?” We’ve got a neighbor who’s tearing down a home and replacing it. That process has put a lot of dust and dirt in the air and it’s making us sick. The weirdness with the fraud on our bank account continues and it’s having an affect on the legal situation we’re going thru. I’ve received an update on the status of my unemployment insurance (hint: it’s not good). We’ve finally joined most of the rest of the podosphere by discussing what we’ve watched on TV. In related news: TV antenna manuals suck. We read a news article about an attorney who likes to photoshop herself into images with celebrities. And more!
We’re back in the studio! And for some reason, I sound like I’ve been smoking Marlboro Reds all day. It’s not a super high-energy show. I relate the exciting story of my trip to a local RV park by the ocean. We provided an update on the weird fraudulent activity on our bank account. 2014 continues to be an “interesting” year as I got some unexpected (and unwelcome) news about my claim for unemployment benefits. We got a nice shoutout from some fellow podcasters and we read a little bit of listener feedback. Jen gave an update on her disability claim and we finished the show with a scary news item about spiders.
It’s hot! So hot we had to abandon our usual recording studio for the (almost) comfortable confines of another room that had some leftover A-C in the air. It’s been an interesting (i.e. frustrating) week for us in terms of technology. But the good news is that Jen has room again on her MacBook Air hard drive! Apple dropped an iOS update and broke everything. The weirdness with fraudulent activity on our bank account continues. This time in the form of an unexpected credit. Also, Bluetooth pairing has become the most complicated thing computers do now. We read an iTunes review and then that was pretty much it.
It’s time for Hyper Nonsense! The best podcast you’ll hear right now… unless you listen to something (anything) else. We started out the show with ambient furniture noises, which lead into a story of the last couple of chairs I bought from Staples. Jen explains how it feels to never leave the house. We talk about the new social net that’s all the rage with the kids. I relate a story about how my sister’s car was broken into and what happened to her stolen iPod. I’ve been cooking more at home and researching recipes. I discovered that food bloggers can be kinda self-important.We read some listener feedback and we take a look at what American products are called in other countries. And more!
