A Podcast by Rosie Guarino & Jackie Viscusi
Gut Checking Your Asshole Tendencies
As much as I binge over true crime podcasts, sometimes I just need something fresh thrown in the mix to balance it all out. Something with variety that can add humor to your daily cycle of blah routines. While feeling a bit disconnected from my community lately, it’s nice to have some form of media telling me that we are all equally feeling fucked up in the head and connected by threads of self-doubt and just a basic need for human discussion. How about a nice round-table type of discussion with two ambitious and perfectly wacky ladies living in Los Angeles asking the serious questions we all want to know!? With their spicy honesty and personal experiences, they are about to blow your mind with awareness. Am I An Asshole for My Sexual Fantasies? Am I An Asshole for Being a People Pleaser? Am I An Asshole for Cheating? Being Jealous? Disliking Republicans?! No jabbing attitudes here, just an interesting take on all sides of one topic per show. Okay, and maybe a few OH SHIT moments.
These topics may seem as if you know the obvious, but there is something to learn from each episode. While no one is talking to each other any more, you can join Rosie Guarino and Jackie Viscusi while they get to the inner-workings of what they stand for. Besides their usual programming structure they also sprinkle in live recordings and rapid fire question episodes with friends or family members to choose a topic from a bowl and answer questions on the spot.
With a new hot topic each episode, Rosie and Jackie invite a guest (or sometimes multiple) for a well-rounded conversation on modern and controversial topics. For additional depth they bring in a Resident Therapist to touch on the human side of why we may or may not feel like an asshole for feeling how we do about the topic and what our actions can say can about us.
Every episode in their Itunes library is relatable. I recommend listening from the first episodes so you can really get a sense of the hosts’ personalities. If you have a stick up your butt however, you may not like this show, okay? But if you have an open mind whatsoever you will get addicted. If you prefer to jump around based on the topics relevant to you at the time, that’s cool too! Just know that Rosie and Jackie are going to make you laugh, question your life and soothe you with their perfect-for-podcasting voices.
If you often get songs or commercial jingles stuck in your head - here is a new one! They begin each episode by singing “Am I An Asshoooooooooole”. Sometimes in tune with each other, but mostly not. LOL. After listening to one episode of this podcast you are going to be in the kitchen singing this while cooking. You will sing it in the car. You will sing it to your dog. You will be singing it EVERYWHERE because there is never a shortage of assholes floating around in the world around us. This podcast will have you forming your own opinions like never before, and liking it.
Rosie and Jackie aren’t recruiting assholes - let me just be clear. This is about taking a deep look inward and finding out how to NOT be an asshole. With opinions from at least 3 people each show plus the therapist’s view, you might just gain a little insight on the matter. I’ve found happiness in these episodes and it makes me feel like I’m not a total piece of shit and I think you might too!
