Transcripts

Speaker:

.. Trey: Hi.

Chelsey:

Ah, hi.

Chelsey:

If you are watching the Patreon, you really got quite a dance show, I don't think I've

Trey:

Really broke a sweat there.

Trey:

Hi everyone.

Chelsey:

Seriously!

Trey:

Welcome to Review That Review, the preeminent podcast dedicated to reviewing..

Chelsey:

Reviews!

Chelsey:

Yay.

Chelsey:

We're just like Siskel and Ebert only instead of reviewing cinematic masterpieces, we

Trey:

That's Chelsey, Donn,

Chelsey:

and that's Trey Gerrald

Trey:

and together y'all, you know who we are, where those cool cats,

Chelsey:

we're

Voiceover:

The Review Queens.

Trey:

How's your crown today, Tracy?

Chelsey:

Digital and lovely and very light, Trey.

Chelsey:

Not Trey.

Chelsey:

Che!

Chelsey:

Thanks for asking.

Chelsey:

It's not going to go anywhere.

Chelsey:

How's your, how's your week been, Trey?

Trey:

I've had a good week, you know, since I am the editor of the podcast, I have realized that

Trey:

So it was more expensive.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

It's just the editing process is multi-layered and I'm like editing different.

Trey:

This is boring, but my computer, the memory has just completely depleted.

Trey:

And I even have a four terabyte external that I am like slowly processing everything over into that,

Trey:

And so I was looking and it was like 700 gigabytes of other.

Trey:

quote-unquote Other that you can't click on and find out what it is.

Chelsey:

You mean, like when you're, when you're looking at the Mac and you like pull

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

So then that..

Chelsey:

So your other portion..

Trey:

What is the other?

Chelsey:

Are you asking me?

Trey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Do you know?

Chelsey:

I always just assumed it was everything that didn't fit into the other categories.

Trey:

Right.

Trey:

But you can't click on it and find it.

Trey:

You can like click on messages, which I had 50, I think it was 54

Chelsey:

I don't know percentages, but that seems high.

Trey:

But I literally had text messages from 2014 stored on my iPhone, which

Trey:

So I got crazy and I literally deleted.

Trey:

Every text message except for, with my husband in life deleted it, it is gone.

Trey:

Oh, it felt so delicious.

Trey:

I've had no regrets.

Trey:

It's wonderful.

Trey:

And I got a text from Chelsey that said, 'did you literally delete our history about

Trey:

And you know, what's great about that is you still have it.'

Chelsey:

So, I mean, I'm the keeper of all of the secrets.

Chelsey:

But also, yeah, I mean, I'm going to be honest.

Chelsey:

I saw the post and I thought, I understand why David, you know, is above me, but.

Chelsey:

I feel like I'm like the work wife.

Chelsey:

I mean, I'm at least the work girlfriend.

Chelsey:

I was, I was like, maybe he didn't want to make it public because like, that

Trey:

Oh you thought that when you texted me, I'd be like, 'PS, I didn't really do you.'

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

I thought, yeah, I thought when I texted to you are going to be like, 'obviously

Trey:

No.

Chelsey:

But what was interesting is when we were texting, I was like, let me go back and see how

Chelsey:

So like I'm looking back, back, back, back back and I found the first, like

Chelsey:

And this was how many years ago was this?

Chelsey:

What year do you think it was like 2015?

Trey:

I think it was 17.

Trey:

I think we met in 17.

Trey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

So the first photograph I ever sent you in 2017 was a screenshot

Trey:

Which is crazy!

Chelsey:

Which is so crazy on so many levels.

Trey:

And then you looked at the next, like three and they were also reviews.

Chelsey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

Like the first five photo text messages between us were screenshots of Yelp reviews about psychics,

Chelsey:

Because like we've been friends for a long time, but there were years where it was just like, happy

Chelsey:

Like, not because we don't love each other, but just, we live in different

Chelsey:

And like, we just went on like two different paths, checking in with each other periodically

Trey:

Mmm-hmm.

Chelsey:

That was predicted by an online psychic on Yelp!

Trey:

It is crazy because that year that I was in LA was the first time I

Trey:

Cause I remember I went tanning, which if you remember in a previous

Trey:

But I got a membership at a tanning salon in West Hollywood, got so outrageously burned,

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

So like my whole world of reviews began right at that time.

Chelsey:

Right when we met.

Trey:

Literally.

Chelsey:

You know, when things like that happen, you can't help, but laugh

Chelsey:

There's something else.

Chelsey:

There's another force out there that knows things are going to unfold in a certain

Trey:

Totally.

Trey:

We like look back and piece that together, which is nice.

Trey:

And that psychic story.

Trey:

I'll save it for another time on the podcast.

Chelsey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

Or maybe like a Patreon moment.

Trey:

Maybe, but yeah.

Trey:

So I feel freer.

Trey:

I feel lighter.

Trey:

I feel like my computer is running so much faster, so it's great.

Trey:

I can fill it with more podcast episodes.

Trey:

Chelsey, how was your week?

Chelsey:

Oh my God.

Chelsey:

First of all, Trey's amazing.

Chelsey:

He edits, everything does so much work.

Chelsey:

I'm the friggin luck...

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

I'm the friggin luckiest.

Chelsey:

I just am.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

I'm sorry.

Chelsey:

You're going to have to edit that.

Chelsey:

My week's been good.

Chelsey:

I did it.

Chelsey:

I, I grabbed the old water bottle out from the bottom of the cabinet, cleaned her off and

Trey:

And?

Chelsey:

It's been going well.

Chelsey:

Uh, definitely been getting a lot more water since I've been holding her and keeping her around.

Chelsey:

I really do feel better when I'm hydrated.

Chelsey:

Who knew?

Trey:

I know.

Trey:

It really is crazy.

Trey:

I love that this is like our recurring theme is Chelsey's hydration,

Trey:

Like we can check in with Chelsey's Hydration!

Chelsey:

You should!

Chelsey:

Cause when you put the post on Instagram about like being hydrated.

Chelsey:

I, I was severely dehydrated at the time that I read it.

Chelsey:

And then I was like, it was actually one of the reasons why I pulled her out of the old...

Trey:

I didn't even think about that!

Chelsey:

Cabinet!

Chelsey:

Actually, that's true.

Chelsey:

That's why I ended up that was the, I forgot.

Chelsey:

That was the impetus for getting her because I saw the post that you put on Instagram.

Chelsey:

And then I was like, I gotta do something about this.

Trey:

That is hilarious to me.

Trey:

Anyway.

Trey:

All right, so you want to get into some, um, kvetching?

Chelsey:

I mean, Yeah, let's do it.

Trey:

All right.

Trey:

Chelsey, what do you want to

Voiceover:

Lodge a Complaint!

Trey:

About this week?

Chelsey:

This week, I'd like to lodge a complaint against those random dips in the road.

Chelsey:

So you're driving, you're approaching a traffic light for whatever

Chelsey:

Like it's like, like a little hill, like anyway.

Chelsey:

Point is, if you go over this at a certain speed, that's even like the speed for the speed limit.

Chelsey:

You like bottom out your car.

Trey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

You know what I'm talking about?

Trey:

I do.

Chelsey:

Why is this?

Trey:

You think it's intentionally a dip or you think..

Chelsey:

I wonder.

Chelsey:

I'm like, is it a, yeah, is it intentional?

Chelsey:

Like, it's like a dip because you're trying to slow me down towards the light.

Chelsey:

Is it like for earthquake?

Chelsey:

Or is it just like somebody really miscalculated this construction work

Chelsey:

And I hate when I bottom out my car on..

Chelsey:

There's one right on Morepark.

Chelsey:

And I hit it.

Chelsey:

Like every time!

Trey:

You haven't learned yet.

Chelsey:

No.

Chelsey:

I mean, like I just, you know, sometimes I forget and I'm like, oh right.

Chelsey:

This one is like the crazy one.

Trey:

That happens to me a lot like going into driveways.

Chelsey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

Exactly.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

That feeling of like you're going into someone's driveway and then you're like bottoming out.

Chelsey:

It's like that, but in the middle of the road.

Trey:

What kind of car do you have?

Trey:

Maybe you have a low, maybe need to inflate your tires.

Chelsey:

I do have a coop it's like closer to the ground.

Chelsey:

Maybe I do need to inflate my tires.

Chelsey:

I don't know the point is, it's very annoying when you're driving and you just want to keep

Chelsey:

And yet that's not enough.

Chelsey:

There are these terrible bumps that are going to bottom out your car.

Chelsey:

So anyway, that's, what's on my mind today.

Chelsey:

What do you want to complain about, Trey?

Trey:

I hear you.

Trey:

Interesting.

Trey:

We keep mind melding here.

Chelsey:

Oh really?

Chelsey:

Okay.

Trey:

So today my complaint is when you go to a parking lot and you can't pull into a

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Why can people not park in the line?

Trey:

The whole concept of driving is built around staying inside of a line.

Trey:

There are lines on the highway.

Trey:

There are dashed lines.

Trey:

There is the line so that you don't go off of the road.

Trey:

Why do people suddenly not pay attention?

Trey:

When there's many of them for a parking spot?

Chelsey:

Sometimes somebody else parks off and then you have to park off and then you're like, I

Chelsey:

I just had to follow suit with what this other person did.

Trey:

I recognize that I've probably not parked perfectly every time in my life, but how much

Chelsey:

It shouldn't take you more than five seconds.

Trey:

Everything in life fits into something.

Trey:

Liquid goes into cups.

Trey:

Keys, go into key holes.

Trey:

Hair goes into hair ties.

Trey:

We know Q-tips are not supposed to go in the ear, but we stick them in our ear.

Trey:

So for some reason, even though that's the one direction not to do.

Trey:

We know that the tire should not be on the line.

Trey:

So why, why is this a thing that exists where people cannot park inside the Parking space line?

Trey:

There's no answer.

Chelsey:

A rush?, or an offender before that person?

Trey:

Well...

Trey:

that's my complaint.

Trey:

I don't like it.

Trey:

Everyone stop it!

Chelsey:

I hear you.

Chelsey:

It is the worst.

Chelsey:

It's really annoying.

Chelsey:

I, it just shows you like driving is supposed to be a team sport, you guys.

Chelsey:

We're supposed to help each other out.

Chelsey:

It's not just about you taking the extra 10 seconds that it takes you to correct your car.

Chelsey:

It's the driving karma of working in unison to ensure that if this parking garage has a

Trey:

Have you ever noticed sometimes in parking garages when they don't do the math right,

Chelsey:

Oh, that's like leftover.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Oh, I hate that too.

Trey:

Anyway.

Trey:

Okay.

Trey:

I'm going to shake it off.

Trey:

I'm glad that we got those out.

Chelsey:

It's true.

Chelsey:

I think I really do feel like I need a little like shimmy shake.

Trey:

I think we should both get shake weights and literally do a shake weight between segments.

Chelsey:

Oh, that's a good idea.

Chelsey:

I could, like, my arms could stand to be tight.

Trey:

I mean, I guess we could just do the motion.

Chelsey:

Also.

Chelsey:

Like, do you think that this would look strange if, to anyone watching the video?

Chelsey:

So if I was just doing this in the corner of the video the whole time?

Trey:

No.

Trey:

Why would that look strange?

Chelsey:

No?

Chelsey:

It doesn't look like...

Chelsey:

No?

Trey:

No, not at all.

Trey:

There's nothing weird about that.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

Didn't think so.

Trey:

All right.

Trey:

Should we jump into some online reviews, my friend?

Chelsey:

I think we should.

Chelsey:

That's such a good idea.

Chelsey:

Let's do that.

Chelsey:

As you know, we are your trusty Review Queens.

Chelsey:

We each bring in a review from the internet that we feel needs to be inspected.

Trey:

We read you the review, break it down and rate the impact of the review

Trey:

It's a very Regal process that we have coined called

Voiceover:

Assess That Kvetch

Trey:

And kvetch means..

Chelsey:

Complaint.

Chelsey:

All right.

Chelsey:

Who's first today?

Trey:

Me!

Chelsey:

Yay!

Chelsey:

All right, take it away, RQ!

Voiceover:

Review That Review.

Trey:

All right, I'm doing it!

Trey:

Today.

Trey:

I have a Review that, um, is connected to that, that year that we met when

Trey:

Cause it's when I first started listening to podcasts in the car.

Trey:

So I have a review today, it is a two star review from Apple Podcasts written by Frinkydink1.

Chelsey:

Wait.

Chelsey:

What?!

Trey:

F R I N K Y D I N K one.

Chelsey:

Wow.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Trey:

And this was for the very viral, very successful ginormous podcast.

Trey:

My Favorite Murder.

Chelsey:

Oh, your..

Chelsey:

Which is your favorite!

Trey:

My favorite.

Chelsey:

Your favorite, Alright.

Trey:

This is Frinkydink's two star review of My Favorite Murder with

Chelsey:

Okay.

Trey:

The subject is, 'Hear me out.'

Trey:

Hear me out.

Trey:

Start a different podcast.

Trey:

I have felt somewhat conflicted about this podcast since I became a listener about two years ago.

Trey:

Overall, I think K and G are both great personalities for a podcast, and I enjoy hearing

Trey:

What made me feel sometimes icky about listening to this podcast is that

Trey:

A.

Trey:

Obsessing over true crime murders, et cetera, is not healthy.

Trey:

Point blank.

Trey:

Thinking about learning about and talking about the horrors of crime and human suffering,

Trey:

B.

Trey:

I also agree with some points made by others that true crime is inherently exploitative.

Trey:

Even if work is done to try to honor victims.

Trey:

C.

Trey:

I also think it's damaging for both listeners and hosts when it's stressed

Trey:

How we shouldn't trust people, et cetera.

Trey:

When in reality crimes like those they typically cover parentheses, women being

Trey:

True Crime is in and of itself a morally and ethically ambiguous area.

Trey:

It's clear that K and G do not feel motivated, or as enthusiastic about this podcast anymore.

Trey:

Maybe because of mental health.

Trey:

Maybe because of ethical questions and have been essentially phoning in it for months.

Trey:

My solution start a different podcast about something else entirely.

Trey:

Make it an advice podcast, a mental health podcast, parentheses, with

Trey:

Your work is clearly not being you joy anymore.

Trey:

And it seems to not be bringing joy to many longtime listeners now too.

Trey:

Close a long and wonderful chapter with MFM and start something new.

Chelsey:

Wow.

Chelsey:

Frinkydink1.

Chelsey:

So here's the, here's a little bit of the rub, but I'm going to depend on you for this side of it.

Chelsey:

I haven't listened to My Favorite Murder cause like I am kind of a scaredy cat and I don't

Chelsey:

Here's how I feel about it.

Chelsey:

It's unnecessary.

Chelsey:

Why are you going on this podcast where people are looking for this kind of entertainment?

Chelsey:

And insinuating that their choice is somehow incorrect or that they need to

Chelsey:

You're wasting time.

Chelsey:

You're wasting space.

Chelsey:

You don't belong here.

Chelsey:

If you don't want to listen.

Chelsey:

Do not listen.

Chelsey:

There are many of other podcasts out there that you can listen to.

Chelsey:

You go ahead and listen to your mental health podcasts.

Chelsey:

Don't tell other people in the comments what they should and should not be listening to.

Chelsey:

Also don't psychoanalyze the hosts based on zero information.

Chelsey:

So, Frinkydink1, you're rubbing me the wrong way.

Chelsey:

And I want this to be known that I'm saying this as someone who has never

Chelsey:

Probably won't because it's not my cup of tea.

Chelsey:

This is unnecessary is my opinion.

Chelsey:

What do you think?

Trey:

I mean, I'm just like applauding you, cause like I know you've never

Trey:

I started listening in 2017.

Trey:

I believe they began in 2016 or late 2015.

Trey:

I definitely started when there was less than 50 episodes.

Trey:

And they're up to like 250 or something at this point.

Chelsey:

Sure.

Trey:

I'm a member of their Fan Cult, they call it.

Trey:

I've been to a live show.

Trey:

I own multiple items of merchandise.

Trey:

And this very podcast is based off of the template of My Favorite Murder.

Trey:

Uh, so it inspired me to create something.

Trey:

So everything you're saying is exactly like why this review was so insane to me.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

It's like giving a graduation speech to people that aren't graduating.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

This isn't your audience, hun, move on.

Trey:

I will say that Karen and Georgia are very vocal about mental health.

Trey:

So I understand Frinkydink bringing up.

Trey:

Uh, mental health, but I think it's very, I think it's just very dangerous to try to label anyone's

Trey:

Like to say that this..

Chelsey:

Yeah, Like, I dunno, I just feel, I find it completely unnecessary.

Chelsey:

I'm trying to even wrap my head around.

Chelsey:

What it, well, maybe like, like, could it have been helpful if Frinkydink was just sort of like

Chelsey:

So I won't be tuning in anymore, but like wish you guys the best of luck.' I mean,

Chelsey:

Note taken.

Chelsey:

Let's make sure we're having this be part of our discussion.

Chelsey:

Right?

Chelsey:

So I'm not saying we don't have a right to have a response to a certain kind of podcast,

Trey:

Well it's interesting to me because they began, they self-proclaimed that

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

They were somewhat conflicted since they started listening.

Chelsey:

Right.

Trey:

So, okay.

Trey:

So what is that about?

Trey:

But then I also, um, I just personally disagree and I do think that, I'm

Chelsey:

Sure.

Trey:

Like I, I do want to be a Review Queen and like honor,

Chelsey:

Yea of course.

Trey:

But I do think that, Frinkydink's opinion that it isn't good to tell people

Trey:

I mean, even My Favorite Murder has had people reach out saying explicitly that because of

Chelsey:

I was hypervigilant because..

Trey:

Yeah.

Trey:

And their whole thing about their quote, fuck politeness.

Trey:

They sold like rape whistles that said, fuck politeness on them.

Trey:

I have it on my key chain.

Trey:

Like it's a way to like, protect yourself because..

Chelsey:

So that is like intentionally a part of the messaging of the podcast.

Trey:

Oh yeah, absolutely.

Chelsey:

What do you think about the whole argument about them phoning it in since

Trey:

You're going to get me in trouble.

Trey:

Um, well currently at the time of recording this, we're reaching the end of a two month break.

Trey:

Karen and Georgia have never taken a hiatus.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Trey:

And we're, like on the fifth year of the podcast, what I've noticed

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

And you know, you listen to people in your ears and they become friends.

Trey:

So much of the experience of listening to the show is sort of like hanging

Trey:

So there becomes this ownership.

Trey:

But, aside from joining the fan club, it's free.

Trey:

And so there is a lot of opinion about what they should be doing, what they should be creating...

Trey:

that's free.

Chelsey:

Right.

Trey:

And so there's been a lot of, um, possible decline conversation and the quality

Chelsey:

Okay.

Trey:

Which like, I don't know that I need to really weigh in on, but I, you

Chelsey:

Right.

Trey:

I think that it is good to create boundaries in life and to set yourself up for success.

Trey:

And so, you know, I can't begin to speak for what their experience has been, but there has,

Trey:

So..

Chelsey:

That's true.

Chelsey:

It wasn't one star, I guess.

Trey:

But to me, I guess, like, if we're going through our general roster of like how we're

Chelsey:

Is it useful?

Chelsey:

Like, is it..

Trey:

Yeah is there value here?

Chelsey:

Yeah, I don't think so.

Trey:

Well, it's just so seeping in a like a one-sided opinion, which sure.

Trey:

That's Frinkydink's opinion, but it's just, so...

Chelsey:

It's also just, I don't know.

Chelsey:

There's just so much about this that I hate.

Chelsey:

I just want to touch on quickly what you were just talking about, because like, yeah, it, it

Chelsey:

And I really don't like that rinky...

Chelsey:

that Frinkydink...

Chelsey:

Rinky-dink...

Chelsey:

Frinkydink1 is telling them to start something new.

Trey:

Yeah, that's so pompous.

Trey:

Right?

Chelsey:

Who are you to tell someone when something is at a completion, like maybe they're

Chelsey:

That's going to like, take what they've started and bring it like 10 million times

Chelsey:

Like we don't know like things transition and things change in a natural way.

Chelsey:

And I just think to assign something like that, like to try and say like, you should end this.

Chelsey:

It's just, wrong.

Trey:

I mean, it's funny that like there at the last portion of the review is offering 'my

Chelsey:

Here's my unsolicited advice.

Chelsey:

And you should make an advice pod...

Chelsey:

No, you Frinkydink1, you should make an advice podcast because I think

Chelsey:

Cause you like making lists and people like to take advice in list form.

Chelsey:

So I think you should make a listicle advice podcasts.

Trey:

I mean, as far as like the spelling and grammar here.

Chelsey:

Bad!

Trey:

There were many like misspellings here.

Trey:

Also, it's really upsetting to me that it's broken down into A B C D, but A is not capitalized.

Trey:

So it looks like a weird misspelling.

Chelsey:

So everything...

Chelsey:

like B C, D that's all capitalized, but A isn't?

Chelsey:

That's annoying.

Trey:

There are random words that are incorrect.

Trey:

So like, it does seem that they didn't really do a huge spellcheck pass here.

Trey:

I understand that if you're typing this on apple podcasts, you might not get the red squiggle line.

Chelsey:

Sure.

Trey:

I mean, what do you think of the truthiness of this?

Trey:

Do you believe Frinkydink?

Chelsey:

I believe that Frinkydink had this sort of averse reaction, but based on the

Chelsey:

And so I don't think that they are typical listener.

Trey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

I believe them that like this was their experience and their being authentically

Chelsey:

I do not believe that this would be the experience of most people who

Chelsey:

Because at the end of the day, as we know there are thousands and thousands of millions, I don't

Chelsey:

So if you're choosing to be here, I don't think that that's going to be your experience.

Trey:

And something I think that is going against what Frinkydink is stating,

Chelsey:

Right.

Trey:

So I don't understand...

Trey:

like...

Chelsey:

So they kept you captivated for two years, then you decided you wanted to move on.

Chelsey:

And instead of just moving on with grace, you leave a little, not going to be vulger but...

Trey:

I mean, I guess I can take a little bit of my, like, I'm feeling a little defensive on

Trey:

Hesitantly.

Trey:

And there-- I'm noticing a decline and I have decided what the reason for the decline is.

Trey:

And so therefore don't even go on the journey.

Trey:

It's like a very interesting way to live your life, to tell, tell other people what to do.

Trey:

I understand reviews or to like share experience and knowledge, but something

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

I just think whenever we start getting into defining things as morally and

Chelsey:

So.

Trey:

And I think that like, it's so amazing to me, your first gut response

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

If you're not interested in true crime, you're probably not

Trey:

Although I was not a huge, true crime person.

Chelsey:

And you did.

Chelsey:

But if you did it, like if you weren't a huge true crime person and you tried it out and

Chelsey:

Do you think you would write a review or do you think you would just stop listening?

Trey:

No, but...

Trey:

and you and I intimately know, getting people to write a podcast review, it's an involved process.

Trey:

It isn't as straight forward as it should be.

Trey:

I don't know why.

Trey:

And that's so ridiculous.

Trey:

So like, it really takes a lot of energy.

Trey:

Like a it's more, it takes more effort than tweeting.

Chelsey:

Sure.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

That's true.

Trey:

Any other thoughts before we crown it?

Trey:

Like, would this be a deal breaker to you?

Chelsey:

No.

Trey:

I know.

Chelsey:

No, it would not.

Chelsey:

All right.

Chelsey:

I think we can.

Chelsey:

I think we can crown it.

Trey:

Yeah, I think I can.

Trey:

Yeah, I think I can crown it too.

Trey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

All right.

Chelsey:

So Trey and I each have our own set of one to five crown cards in an effort to

Chelsey:

We will simultaneously reveal our rating.

Voiceover:

The Queens are Tabulating.

Trey:

All right, are you ready?

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Voiceover:

Total Score!

Chelsey:

Go Trey

Trey:

One.

Chelsey:

I gave it a half.

Trey:

I almost did half as well.

Chelsey:

I learned from you.

Chelsey:

I learned from you that we could do half crown and wasn't even thinking of it

Chelsey:

And I just think it's wrong to, to pretend like, you know, people that you don't in such a...

Chelsey:

I mean pretentious way, to be honest, that was why I gave it a half crown.

Chelsey:

How about you?

Chelsey:

What'd you give it a crown?

Trey:

I gave it one crown, because I think that the, um, hypothesis here is really interesting.

Trey:

And I think that perhaps it would be better as like a scientific study where

Chelsey:

Right.

Trey:

I don't think that's hypothesis should be on a review on apple podcasts.

Trey:

And this is challenging for me because I'm so biased when it comes to My Favorite

Trey:

I just felt like I was being told something is true.

Trey:

Which is like You can't prove that it's true.

Trey:

So that rubs me the wrong way.

Trey:

And so for that reason, I gave it one crown because I can see that

Trey:

Their like wheels have been turning.

Trey:

So I appreciate that.

Trey:

I think Frinkydink needs to do some, uh, scientific exercises to sort of weigh if this

Chelsey:

I think Frinkydink needs to find a different forum for his theories.

Trey:

I agree.

Chelsey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

That was good.

Chelsey:

Good Trey.

Chelsey:

I like that.

Trey:

I'm sad.

Trey:

Now I can't ever look forward to doing My Favorite Murder again.

Chelsey:

Well, it's, it's mazeltov and..

Trey:

There's a season for everything.

Chelsey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

There's a season for everything.

Chelsey:

And I think that, um, we all understand your love for My Favorite Murder.

Chelsey:

And respect it.

Trey:

Thank you for going there with me.

Trey:

And I appreciate your valuable contribution as someone who has never listened.

Chelsey:

Of course.

Trey:

All right.

Trey:

let's take a quick break.

Trey:

And when we come back, we'll get into Chelsey's review.

Chelsey:

Love it.

Chelsey:

BRB.

Trey:

SSDGM!

Voiceover:

Hold your crown.

Voiceover:

We'll be right back.

Trey:

I don't know why I always have to make that sound.

Chelsey:

Because it's Game Time!

Trey:

Woooo!

Trey:

Let's take a quick spin on the Meryl-Go-Round!

Voiceover:

'I don't feel like an icon.

Voiceover:

Most of the days, I feel like 'I can't!' That's with an, A'.

Chelsey:

All right.

Chelsey:

So in case you don't know the deal, here's the deal.

Chelsey:

Trey and I have each picked a rotten, scathing, pithy One-Star-Zinger and with 30 seconds on

Trey:

Just like queen Meryl Streep, who does it all.

Chelsey:

Before the clock runs out.

Trey:

All right, Chelsey, your first.

Trey:

What's your Zinger today?

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

I'm going to have to try and say this to you with a straight face.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

So my zinger is a one-star Amazon review written by Anne K.

Chelsey:

And the review is for a Nicholas Cage sequin pillow case.

Trey:

Wait.

Trey:

Is it the one where you wipe it down and it disappears?

Chelsey:

Yes!

Chelsey:

And Anne K's, the subject is, 'who would buy this?' and then the zinger is, 'if

Chelsey:

Are you okay?'

Trey:

Oh, that's really.

Trey:

Wow.

Trey:

How did you find this?

Chelsey:

I knew you were gonna ask.

Chelsey:

I was waiting.

Chelsey:

So I, I have something I'm saving for a future episode, but I was Googling

Chelsey:

And it led me down this, what should we call, like gag gift, Amazon spiral.

Chelsey:

I saw this pillow is like one of the suggestions and I was just like, oh my God, that exists.

Chelsey:

I have to look at that and see if there's a great review from it.

Chelsey:

And there wasn't like anything amazing.

Chelsey:

That was like a long review worthy of its own moment.

Chelsey:

But I did find this zinger that I found.

Chelsey:

Like, I dunno, it kind of tickled me.

Chelsey:

There are, you can buy a Nicholas Cage sequin pillowcase on Amazon.

Chelsey:

If you'd like.

Trey:

I mean, that sounds really good to me.

Chelsey:

But Anne K.

Chelsey:

She has questions for you.

Trey:

The bees.

Trey:

The Bees!

Trey:

Okay.

Trey:

Um, so are you strapped in and ready?

Chelsey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

What am I strapped into?

Trey:

You're strapped in on a starfish.

Chelsey:

Oh, I like that.

Chelsey:

Thanks.

Trey:

Trey:

I'll give it to you.

Chelsey:

Thank you.

Chelsey:

That was a longer one for me.

Trey:

That was five.

Trey:

You got five, Queen.

Chelsey:

Woo!

Chelsey:

I'll take it.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

What do you have for your zinger today, Trey.

Trey:

So ironically, my zinger is also from Amazon.

Trey:

This is for the King James Version Holy Bible gift and award Bible

Chelsey:

Oh, my God.

Chelsey:

These like Amazon Titles.

Chelsey:

I understand that you're trying to pull for those keywords, but it's out of control.

Trey:

And this was written by Andrew P and the subject is question mark and the

Chelsey:

Chelsey:

Well, You know, the things that people found, find helpful these days.

Chelsey:

We'll take it.

Chelsey:

All right.

Chelsey:

Are you ready Trey?

Chelsey:

You are strapped into your seahorse.

Trey:

That Yankee was not yankee!

Chelsey:

I know that was really good, but that was funny because I was like, was

Chelsey:

All right.

Chelsey:

Let's see what you got.

Chelsey:

I know you won, but I just want to know, because I know you did really well.

Chelsey:

Okay...

Chelsey:

Seven!

Chelsey:

Wow Trey.

Chelsey:

You're really picking up steam, RQ, You!

Trey:

I really get very nervous about Yankee every round now that one episode happened where

Chelsey:

Well, I realized the opposite.

Chelsey:

Like I did.

Chelsey:

Yankee, I think, and then they couldn't do Southern, but either way, like same thing.

Chelsey:

Like every time I get you out, I'm like, oh my God.

Chelsey:

Like my mouth is going to be able to do it.

Chelsey:

So I feel you, but who cares?

Chelsey:

Because you're a winner and you would've won regardless.

Chelsey:

Even if I took that one away.

Trey:

Give me that seahorse and I'm going to go all the way.

Chelsey:

Yes, you are, Queen!

Voiceover:

Review That Review.

Trey:

All right.

Trey:

So we're back from that game break.

Trey:

And now it's time for Chelsey's review.

Trey:

Chelsey girl, what you got for us today?

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

I have a Yelp review for us today and our Yelp review is written by Mary G and it is

Trey:

Nuh-uh!

ChelseyAlright::

Wow.

ChelseyAlright::

So that was the worst yoga class I have ever taken.

ChelseyAlright::

I've taken about 150 to 200 classes in my life, all over LA.

ChelseyAlright::

Rising Lotus, Black Dog, Core Power.

ChelseyAlright::

I don't consider myself an expert, but I know what yoga is.

ChelseyAlright::

So I decided I would check this place out and do the light gentle yoga.

ChelseyAlright::

As I wanted a cool down relaxing nighttime class.

ChelseyAlright::

This is not what I got.

ChelseyAlright::

It was called The Sweetest Thing.

ChelseyAlright::

This was the description, "come and sink into a deep gentle stretch with slower moving flows,

ChelseyAlright::

This is a wonderful act of recovery for those healing from injuries or for those who need a

ChelseyAlright::

I think I would rename it.

ChelseyAlright::

Hipster, frantic, shitty yoga.

ChelseyAlright::

I use the word shit because the teacher used that word shit twice.

ChelseyAlright::

I know, very spiritual.

ChelseyAlright::

That's just what I want while I'm doing yoga.

ChelseyAlright::

People cursing at me.

ChelseyAlright::

Oh.

ChelseyAlright::

And she also used sucks.

ChelseyAlright::

What are we in third grade?

ChelseyAlright::

The music wasn't relaxing either.

ChelseyAlright::

It was crappy rock or depressing ballads played so loud.

ChelseyAlright::

I felt like I was at some desert motel bar.

ChelseyAlright::

Fleetwood Mac and one song where the seventies lead singer was screaming.

ChelseyAlright::

The teacher said this was her favorite song.

ChelseyAlright::

Oh, thanks.

ChelseyAlright::

I didn't know I was getting ready for an MMA fight.

ChelseyAlright::

Also, and I'm not trying to be mean here, but Emily, the yoga teacher has the worst

ChelseyAlright::

Raspy, loud and unpleassant.

ChelseyAlright::

I wondered if she had ever gone to yoga school and been trained.

ChelseyAlright::

She also corrected one person's form the entire time.

ChelseyAlright::

She sat at the front and barked at us.

ChelseyAlright::

She was confusing and inconsistent with her instruction.

ChelseyAlright::

She also wore tennis shoes, which I have never seen a teacher do at an inside class.

ChelseyAlright::

That being said we did yoga positions.

ChelseyAlright::

So I guess you can call it yoga.

ChelseyAlright::

I really hope the owners take a look at this post.

ChelseyAlright::

I'm not trying to get anyone fired, but yoga is a spiritual practice.

ChelseyAlright::

Be spiritual!

ChelseyAlright::

Respect the practice of yoga.

ChelseyAlright::

Or don't call yourself a yoga studio.

ChelseyAlright::

Also don't use profanity.

ChelseyAlright::

I'm not at your cousin's wedding.

ChelseyAlright::

We aren't drunk.

ChelseyAlright::

I'm coming here to get relief from a hectic life, not to deal with more sloppy crap.

ChelseyAlright::

This is the longest post I've ever written.

ChelseyAlright::

I guess that says something about how bad my experience was.

Trey:

Oh, my gosh.

Trey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Mary G do you think Mary G is a yoga teacher, cause Mary G has a lot of

Chelsey:

I don't think that Mary G is it.

Chelsey:

I think that Mary G, as she's stated, has been to over 200 classes or something, she said..

Trey:

That's not that many.

Trey:

That's not a lot of classes.

Chelsey:

How is that not?

Chelsey:

That seems like a lot of classes.

Trey:

There's 365 days in a calendar year.

Chelsey:

I mean, well maybe Mary G goes once a week for awhile.

Chelsey:

I don't know, but I don't think that Mary G is an instructor.

Chelsey:

I think that she's just somebody that goes to yoga classes and she seems like

Trey:

No, look.

Trey:

I thought Mary G had a really great point.

Trey:

Like, it's interesting that it's funny that Mary G copy pasted the description, but I'm

Chelsey:

Sure.

Trey:

Like I wouldn't choose a, a screaming rock singer for the

Chelsey:

Right.

Chelsey:

I mean, Fleetwood Mack.

Chelsey:

Like not the worst.

Trey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Don't they sing Landslide.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

Like I can imagine like a, maybe like an, a nice acoustic version of Landslide.

Chelsey:

Anyway.

Trey:

The reason I don't think that 150 to 200 classes is a lot.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Because prefacing, by saying like, I've been to a lot, it felt to me like, okay, then

Chelsey:

Right?

Trey:

Like theoretically, you could do 150 classes in a year.

Trey:

I mean, sure.

Trey:

I mean, okay.

Trey:

Whatever.

Trey:

Also, I get the point about like the tennis shoes.

Trey:

Like usually you do have to remove footwear, but, and it is funny to me that Mary G states multiple

Chelsey:

I know.

Chelsey:

But she...

Trey:

She gives Emily's name.

Chelsey:

She gives Emily's name.

Trey:

Everything Emily did wrong.

Chelsey:

Yes!

Chelsey:

That's so true.

Trey:

I was wondering, can you not be spiritual if you use profanity?.

Chelsey:

I don't believe that the two are mutually exclusive.

Chelsey:

That being said, I don't know if I would, like, I don't really like yoga, but I don't

Chelsey:

I mean, it also depends in what context, like I think if I was in a gentle yoga

Trey:

You don't need that shit.

Chelsey:

Don't need that shit.

Chelsey:

Let it go.

Chelsey:

Yeah.Like that?

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

Like what context.

Trey:

It would perk my ear up as well, but then going in from like, how dare them, say the

Trey:

Like that wasn't a, a build that was like, what?!

Chelsey:

I know, like I kind of got, I kept getting this visual of Mary G

Chelsey:

Like she couldn't just be like, Timmy was running in the hallway.

Chelsey:

She'd be like, Timmy was running like 16 steps faster than he should have been!

Trey:

I clocked on my stopwatch!

Chelsey:

I clocked on my stopwatch.

Chelsey:

Exactly.

Trey:

Did your Hall Monitors in school have special sashes?

Chelsey:

Yes, there were special sashes.

Trey:

Yes!

Trey:

Isn't that so funny.

Chelsey:

I mean, it was not a popular job to have, it definitely said a certain level of

Trey:

In elementary school, did you have to walk in the hall like this?

Chelsey:

Trey has his finger, like in the shush position.

Chelsey:

And then he has his hand and like a peace sign.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

I think we probably had to do stuff like that.

Chelsey:

I definitely remember them using the shush and the peace sign is like, I don't know if we did it the

Chelsey:

And then flash the peace sign maybe.

Chelsey:

I dunno.

Trey:

It's also funny to me that Mary G points out, like, what is this Hipsterville?

Trey:

I do think that, um, hipsters dress code kind of goes into the world of yoga.

Trey:

I think that like to be like, this is hipstery feels like, what Like this chocolate is sweet.

Trey:

I'm like, yeah, no, no shit.

Chelsey:

I mean, I wonder what, like, so they had a hipster, frantic shitty yoga.

Trey:

Oh, Mary used shitty?

Chelsey:

Well, she used it..

Trey:

Oh right, That was the joke.

Chelsey:

Yes as a set up to a joke.

Chelsey:

She was trying to give us humor.

Trey:

What do you think Mary does for a profession?

Chelsey:

Oh God.

Chelsey:

I think she's a meter maid.

Trey:

You really hate meter maids.

Trey:

This has come up on so many episodes.

Chelsey:

I wonder if that is not the right..

Trey:

You really hate Meter Maids.

Chelsey:

Well, I think it's..

Trey:

You live in LA.

Chelsey:

Especially in LA, I think it's like such a shitty karmic job to have.

Chelsey:

Cause like I, every time I ended up getting a parking ticket in LA, I feel like it's like,

Chelsey:

And I don't like that.

Trey:

And they're like, "Muhahaha!"

Chelsey:

Their like, "I was sitting around the corner waiting to make sure you like

Chelsey:

Like, it feels like when I was a kid and I played Duck, Duck Goose,

Chelsey:

Cause like I could never catch anybody.

Chelsey:

You know,

Trey:

Traumatising.

Chelsey:

I'm the Goose.

Chelsey:

It is traumatizing, I'm the Goose and they're just, they're just running

Chelsey:

You know?

Trey:

I feel like Mary G is probably a tax auditor,

Chelsey:

Yes!

Trey:

Like something that's very like black and white,

Chelsey:

You're right.

Chelsey:

Definitely something that's anal retentive.

Chelsey:

I think she's probably a Virgo, I would think.

Trey:

Which is interesting because they're seeking yoga.

Trey:

Well, all right.

Trey:

So, um, I, it's curious to me, because even though I think I have some personality

Chelsey:

I do too.

Chelsey:

And I got to say the spelling and grammar was like, fantastic.

Trey:

I would imagine.

Chelsey:

Yes.

Chelsey:

I mean, it was like, there's no way that, that Mary G posted this without

Chelsey:

There was no copy editing error.

Chelsey:

It was absolutely pitch perfect.

Chelsey:

We utilized all caps, but not in a way that is offensive.

Chelsey:

Like in a way that's like, you know, poppy and looks nice on the page.

Chelsey:

21 people found the review helpful.

Trey:

Whoa.

Trey:

Really?

Chelsey:

Or useful.

Trey:

That's interesting to me because I don't know if I think it's useful because it's

Chelsey:

I think that the reason why it's useful is when people go to yoga studios, they're

Trey:

That's true.

Chelsey:

And so I think what, how this is useful is if I know that Emily.

Chelsey:

Is going to be wearing sneakers, playing strange playlist, you know, paying attention to only

Chelsey:

Um,

Trey:

Having a raspy voice..

Chelsey:

Having, yeah, like not having a voice, that's very soothing.

Chelsey:

I might choose not to go to Emily's class, which is unfortunate for Emily, but I will say, I

Trey:

Yeah.

Trey:

I'm curious what happened to Emily.

Chelsey:

Cause it is so teacher specific, right?

Chelsey:

That's the thing that's crazy to me is you could literally take The Sweetest

Trey:

Okay.

Trey:

Wait, I just looked down at my notes.

Trey:

This studio is called Electric Soul.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Do you know it?

Trey:

Like is their whole shtick that they do like that it's like popular music based.

Chelsey:

Oh maybe, oh good point.

Trey:

Cuz isn't The Sweetest Thing.

Trey:

Isn't that like a, um, a song.

Chelsey:

That's a good point, Trey.

Chelsey:

Wow.

Chelsey:

That seems, thank God.

Chelsey:

You said that that feels like a looming thing I should

Chelsey:

.. Trey: Is that Steven Tyler or something?

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Oh no.

Trey:

That's I Don't Want to Miss a Thing.

Trey:

I don't know.

Trey:

I mean, but everything you were just saying is a really great point.

Trey:

Like I guess I do have a little more insight onto who Emily probably is.

Trey:

Um, so I, that would be valuable if I was going to take a class and Emily was listed as the teacher.

Chelsey:

Right.

Trey:

It doesn't matter to me that the conclusion here is that like,

Trey:

So, you know, I didn't like it because I feel like maybe Mary is caught up

Trey:

And I have a feeling that maybe it's hard for Mary to relax.

Trey:

I don't, I don't think Mary should sign up for restorative yoga.

Trey:

I think Mary needs to take really difficult, challenging, demanding yoga.

Chelsey:

I think Mary really needed restorative yoga in this moment and didn't get it.

Trey:

I can't imagine Mary relaxing though.

Trey:

I mean, I get that Mary's experience was that it wasn't.

Chelsey:

No, I think Mary can relax.

Chelsey:

I think Mary can relax.

Chelsey:

I just think that Mary couldn't relax in this environment.

Trey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

The only thing that like, I, again, was like scratching my head a

Chelsey:

They're like really into yoga and they know everywhere.

Chelsey:

But in the second sentence, after she bragged about her 200 yoga classes that she's been to

Chelsey:

studios all over LA and then she listed one, she listed three other yoga studios immediately.

Trey:

Right.

Trey:

Do you think...

Chelsey:

What do we think about that?

Trey:

You think it's a competitor?

Chelsey:

I don't know.

Chelsey:

Like I wonder, do you think, like it could possibly be somebody from Black

Chelsey:

Or do we think that this is just somebody that's bragging about all..

Trey:

It occurred?

Trey:

Yeah, it occurred to me as that.

Trey:

Cause then like the next sentence is like, I'm not saying I'm an expert.

Trey:

Meanwhile, you just said you were an expert.

Chelsey:

Right.

Chelsey:

True.

Chelsey:

True.

Chelsey:

True.

Trey:

I think I could crown this.

Trey:

What do you think?

Chelsey:

I think I can crown it.

Trey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Alright.

Voiceover:

The Queens are Tabulating.

Trey:

Are you ready?

Chelsey:

Yeah, I think I'm going to be higher than you, but I'm ready.

Trey:

Okay.

Voiceover:

Total Score.

Chelsey:

Oh, interesting.

Trey:

I'm higher than you.

Chelsey:

Yeah!

Chelsey:

I'm holding up three crowns and Trey is holding up three and a half crowns.

Chelsey:

All right.

Chelsey:

Trey tell us.

Trey:

I gave Mary three and a half because I felt that I didn't think Mary was like a

Trey:

I felt like this was Mary's authentic experience and that I gave Mary credit that

Trey:

I took some crowns away because it wasn't humorous.

Trey:

It was more wordy than it needed to be.

Trey:

And I just sort of felt like it just was a, not a match of, um, teacher, student.

Trey:

And I don't know that that should, um, penalize the school or the studio and,

Trey:

I just think they weren't a match and that can be valuable.

Trey:

Looking, like you said, those were your points.

Trey:

So for that reason more than middle of the road, cause I think there is a little of an impact.

Trey:

So that's why the half crown, so three and a half from me.

Trey:

Why did you do three?

Chelsey:

Basically all the reasons you said, the reason why I took off the half crown

Chelsey:

Like, is this the kind of person that's just like, 'oh my!

Chelsey:

They said the word sucks!'

Trey:

My delicate ears!

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Chelsey:

Like, yeah.

Chelsey:

So it is that indicative of who Mary is a little bit more because if it is

Chelsey:

So that's.

Chelsey:

And like, you know, and I feel a little bit bad for Emily that she's being, shouted out

Chelsey:

So that's why I, I awarded Mary three crowns.

Trey:

Excellent.

Chelsey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Very interesting review.

Trey:

Now I'm curious to find out more about Electric Soul.

Chelsey:

Me too!

Chelsey:

Okay.

Chelsey:

Great.

Chelsey:

Well, all right.

Chelsey:

My Queen, I think it's time.

Chelsey:

We've reached the most Regal portion of our show.

Chelsey:

Who are you, Trey inducting for

Voiceover:

My Royal Highness.

Trey:

Why thank you so much for asking me.

Trey:

I didn't think that you would!

Chelsey:

Of course.

Trey:

So today I'm inducting recycling.

Chelsey:

Oh, good.

Chelsey:

Okay.

Trey:

Think about it.

Trey:

Recycling!.

Trey:

All right.

Trey:

Well, I thought about it.

Trey:

And so I was curious, I wanted you to think about it.

Chelsey:

You wanted me to think about it.

Trey:

I was curious who thought of it?

Trey:

So, you know, I love researching.

Chelsey:

Oh my God, Trey, you didn't.

Trey:

I really do.

Trey:

It's fun for me.

Chelsey:

I love it.

Trey:

When do you think recycling began?

Chelsey:

Oh, my God.

Chelsey:

I'm so bad with history..

Trey:

In ninth century Japan, they started recycling paper and they actually believed..

Chelsey:

I'm so glad I didn't, I didn't guess because I would have been way off.

Trey:

You're like, 1920s?

Chelsey:

I'm like 1920.

Chelsey:

Yeah exactly.

Trey:

They felt that recycled paper actually was, more profound and they would use it for

Trey:

Then I realized I needed to induct recycling when, in 1690 in Philadelphia!

Chelsey:

Of all places!

Trey:

They started recycling linen and cotton rags for Bibles and newspapers.

Trey:

And then in World War II, there was a national push for like a universal collection

Trey:

And then the 1960s, it was the very first curbside collection of metal, paper, and yard waste.

Trey:

Interesting.

Chelsey:

Wow.

Trey:

And then I thought this was very cool.

Trey:

When you think of recycling, you know, that little like arrow circle logo of recycling.

Chelsey:

yeah.

Chelsey:

Or isn't it like a triangle?

Trey:

Yeah.

Trey:

Yeah.

Trey:

It's the chasing arrows logo.

Trey:

An architectural college student made that to win a contest and it's still in use today.

Chelsey:

I think I heard about that actually.

Trey:

And then the first state to enforce a mandated law of separating trash and

Chelsey:

Wow.

Chelsey:

Two for two over here!

Trey:

Interesting.

Trey:

And this whole timeline of the creation of recycling 2012, McDonald's replaces

Trey:

That is how big of a deal McDonald's is that it makes the list.

Chelsey:

Wow, that's crazy.

Trey:

But all of that, just to say, I remember when the recycling became a thing.

Trey:

And that's like, because in 87, this whole conversation started about laws about

Trey:

And thank God.

Trey:

I mean, it's just so terrible.

Trey:

Like there's so much waste!

Trey:

Anyway.

Trey:

So for that reason, I'm inducting recycling for My Royal Highness.

Trey:

Everyone just recycle.

Trey:

It's not that hard.

Chelsey:

Do it!

Trey:

Chelsey.

Trey:

Who are you in ducting today?

Trey:

For My Royal Highness?

Chelsey:

I was conflicted.

Chelsey:

I think I'm going to go with teachers today.

Chelsey:

I want to induct all the teachers who have to go back to school now because the school

Chelsey:

You know, obviously children are not vaccinated and you're around like all of these people,

Chelsey:

And I can't even imagine, I imagine, like right now around this time, it's a stressful

Chelsey:

But I think right now in particular, It's even harder.

Chelsey:

So I just want to send an extra love and I want to make all the teachers out there My Royal Highness!

Trey:

It's a really, I had never thought about that.

Trey:

How their kids can't be vaccinated yet.

Trey:

And it's so scary.

Trey:

Alright.
