Another month, another night of drinking during the Times of Covid. Join the ladies in side notes about their mixologist expertise (measure everything), construction paper decorations, and the actual positives of C19.

Sports are trying to make a comeback... so Anna and Nikki might have some other things to talk about soon. And, also, by the way, wear your mask. 

Jun 9, 2020

The title says it all... Welcome back and to the revolution. LWB stands with the marginalized of this country, especially our Black+ friends and family. Join us in keeping our feet on the gas and moving forward. 

The Ladies spend time this episode talking about dating in quarantine, including Nikki's recent interaction that came to a screeching halt... similar to her story.

Drinks in hand (the clinking ice is a cheers to you, Loyal Listeners!), they ponder about this new dating world with references from the '70s (they old). 

May 12, 2020

It's week...?... and we're officially a podcast about dating and only dating. Fortunately, a special guest joins to tell us how it's done in the age of quarantine. One tip: Stop the selfies from the toilet. Let's get love sick with Covid-Cupid.

Apr 7, 2020

(Or, ya know...Corona)

Like you, the ladies are in quarantine (or as Producer Matt likes to say - queerantine). No sports? No worries. Nothing can stop Nikki and Anna from analyzing the important issues of our time, such as Oprah's Bookclub, Nikki's dating phone calls, and Sally's sexting.

Mar 3, 2020

Nikki is BACK! We missed her, kinda. We're heading into our favorite time of year: March Madness! The Ladies will be in Vegas in 2 weeks. Until then, they're being fueled by drama from a Toronto Blue Jay, the gals and gays of Cheer, and those questionable participants on Love is Blind. 

PS, is love really blind?...

 

Feb 4, 2020

Coming at you from Park City, Anna and special guest cohost Matt* teach you about the Chiefs, helicopters and Reddit, a new dating platform; apparently it’s what the cougars are using.

*Don't get us started on Nikki -- she has a special message for you

Jan 7, 2020

The ladies are coming at you from another planet, known as Pasadena during the Rose Bowl with thousands of drunken Badgers. 20 years ago they did the same thing. Fortunately, they now have a podcast to capture the moments. Doug says it all: This is premium content. Take a listen and just remember, they’re 40+ going on 22. God, the Badgers keep ‘em young.

Dec 3, 2019

The holidays mark the passing of time, just like college football, and it makes these ladies feel OLD. There are grays, partial deafness, tenuous Badger performance, and being business ladies.

But, Happy Thanksgiving, all! Catch up with the gals this ep and ring in the season... with domestic lights of course. See you in 2020!

Nov 5, 2019

Hi Loyal Listeners! We're back and annoyed as ever.

  1. Anna has a new favorite number: 797,566.
  2. Everyone is still single, everyone is on Hinge, and everyone becoming unHinged
  3. The Badgers are still ruining lives, but we should pay them.

Also, a quick push notification: Anna needs a date for Madison this weekend. 

 

Oct 8, 2019

It's October so there's no better time to talk about crazy superstitions. It's magic (not Johnson) in sports, which leads the ladies to pose an interesting challenge to Producer Matt (hint: nut cups). On the dating front, Anna is still coupled with Barry, and Nikki is great at making new friends. Just remember folks, "at the end of the day..."

Sep 3, 2019

Ciao from Italia, Loyal Listeners! The ladies report from Europe, tanner than they’ve ever been, eating so much pizza they’ll need a break back home (for no more than 2 days). There’s been a conscious uncoupling, and some oddball interactions with functioning alcoholics and a guy who shares pictures on text like it’s Instagram.

It’s back to school as these broads head back to the US! Pop an Ichnusa and enjoy their version of Bey’s Homecoming, titled Assembly.

Aug 6, 2019

Another month away, another month of thinking, "Am I alone in this?!" by our hosts and loyal listeners. Nikki needs a breath of fresh air after "Hal" leaves her unhinged. Anna's run in with the police furthers the argument for body cams. And, Allie, a loyal listener, is our Verdatem guest star.

We can't make this shit up, even though we're the most creative ladies you'll ever meet. 

Jul 9, 2019

Ladies run the world! We're celebrating the USA team's win of the World Cup. It's one of the few joys, with all the moving, non-texting dudes, and still touch-n-go broken toes...

Jun 4, 2019

It's been a month and the ladies spell it out for ya. There were some ups, some downs, and some tumble downs. They talk about adventures in the wilds of New York: The Catskills and the Manhattan dating scene. 

 

May 7, 2019

Anna has a doppleganger, stairs are hard, Nikki's rich, and NYC guys are aliens; the ladies discuss it all.

Also, all good things come once a month: Periods, bills, and now Last Week's Balls with even better content. We'll be back the first Tuesday of every month; See you next Tuesday (June 4!). 

Apr 30, 2019

This one goes out to all the amazing women in Game of Thrones who killed it (truly) in S8E3. GoT is our sport of choice this week. We're placing big bets on who dies and who survives. We never miss an excuse to gamble. 

Apr 23, 2019

The ladies of LWB are together in Chicago, along with Producer Matt. Everyone takes a break from partying long enough to record the podcast and talk about Matt's... interesting... date. 

Apr 16, 2019

The ladies cover a rare topic for them: Hockey. Fortunately, since they don't know much, they have a special guest and expert, Mr. John King. He has a "young" betting approach. He's also a great third wheel, witnessing some pretty interesting dating action. 

Apr 9, 2019

This week Anna and Nikki welcome a guest co-host, Z! Z talks about marriage, love languages, and being a Z-ero generation immigrant from China. We aren't 100% sure on Z's first name, but we're 100% sure Anna shouldn't try to pronounce it. 

Apr 2, 2019

Anna's making big changes, which is her worst nightmare. So, for a sense of normalcy, the ladies tap a verdatem and make some NCAA bets. #lastweeksbookies

Mar 26, 2019

The ladies are back from Vegas, though barely hanging on. This is Vegas at 40. To reminisce about the good times, Nikki and Anna talk their top 10, and there are some GEMS! 

Mar 19, 2019

The ladies are booming about VEGAS and every bitty adventure that awaits! They're heading out this week, so they spend some time talking seeds and planting 'em.

Mar 12, 2019

Nikki's finally 40! The ladies address how dudes expect a perfect makeup'd female face, regardless of age; lay off us! Plus, it's almost our favorite time of year - March Madness and Vegas! 

Mar 5, 2019

The ladies remember the Bobbitts as Nikki stares down the barrel of 40. They learned a lot, so will you; like how Nikki wore actual graphic tees. Don't worry, they still cover dating (#twinning) and sports ($330M balls). Bonus: Bobsie makes a quick appearance!

Feb 26, 2019

Everyone's talking about it, so are we: Robert Kraft is a dirty bird. We love massages, Anna will get one anywhere and anytime, but this is disgusting. Also, we're continuing to make BDE a thing.
