All you need to know is this episode was recorded on a ski chair lift. It is windy, literally and figuratively (Altitoots).

Nikki & Anna are excited to welcome our first guest: our buddy, Matt! Matt shares some insights on the gay dating scene, reviews his favorite and not-so-favorite apps and tells a cringe-worthy first date story.

Jan 10, 2017

Nikki & Anna discuss Ronda Rousey's unfortunate bout, cold weather in the South, date shakes, a listener story From the Ball Sack that includes a four-date reveal of unsavory suitor details, and their undying hatred for Duke point guard Grayson Allen. And some other stuff. 

Jan 3, 2017

Despite throat issues, Nikki & Anna share their thoughts on Match.com: they aren’t good. They also give some handy online dating red flags, possibly insult some listeners along the way, then briefly discuss the Badgers Bowl game. (But since it doesn’t really matter it is a very brief discussion.) 

Dec 20, 2016

Dec 13, 2016

Nov 22, 2016

Nikki & Anna talk about international travel troubles. They also crunch the numbers on the Badgers' odds of making it to the playoffs (for football, which is not called the Final Four), and share a story From the Ball Sack from a listener who has balls. Really.

Nikki & Anna talk about almost everything except the election, with topics including college football (duh), and a VerDateIm from a fan that is rather graphic. 

Nov 8, 2016

Nikki & Anna dedicate most of this episode documenting the historic Cubs World Series win. They also share a story from a loyal listener straight From the Ball Sack, and this one hits close to home for Nikki.

Oct 11, 2016

Nikki & Anna did a pretty good job picking their favorite Last Week's Balls moments last episode, but it feels like our loyal listeners and producer Leslie did a better job picking. You be the judge.
