  • Whine and I Scream
    January 28th, 2020

    What to do when the entire world has turned upside down? Eat ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream. It soothes a throat that aches from coronavirus, it's basically milk so should be allowed on the Senate floor, it coats all the negative feels in a layer of fat and sugar... it truly is the answer to all things. So eat up! This and other great life advice on today's episode of Just the Worst! 

  • Flip Flop Girl
    January 21st, 2020

    Cognitive dissonance is legit. On this episode, we get to listen to Val suddenly become her mother's daughter when faced with real-life Trump defenders. Life is hard! There is more talk about Cheer (the best show on tv), more about the worst men in the world, some other stuff and things, and promises for a topic next week. Also contests and prizes!

  • Entertain Us
    January 13th, 2020

    The best thing on TV right now? Cheer! Follow these rascally junior college competitive cheerleaders on their journey to the big competition! Kevin Hart has a documentary and gets caught cheating, and Val reviews a movie that she can't explain how she's seen yet. Patti learned about the existence of Ben Faulkner from the pod Hunting Warhead (a MUST listen) and couldn't bring herself to learn more (yet) to make it a full episode. 

  • Life Hacks
    January 6th, 2020

    New year, new you! JTW is back to offer some hot tips on living your best life in 2020. Might as well, since the world is burning and our time is likely running out. Fires, floods, impending war.. this year is starting off with a bang. Feel better about it all by joining the JTW Book Club in reading The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. It's an oldie (but a goodie) about at least one horrible thing that isn't happening right now... at least not yet. 

    December 11th, 2019

    This is it guys... this is when it's all going to come together. We've finally had enough practice and we're ready for the world to hear Just the Worst podcast. So stop by, take a listen, and share with every single person you know! Happy motherf*%!ing 100!!

  • Episode 99: Guns & Drugs
    December 3rd, 2019

    Today we talk about Long Way Gone, the book by Ishmael Beah. It's the story of a child soldier in Sierra Leone, but the phenomenon is happening all over the world. And it is THE WORST. It's the kind of thing that can really give you a new perspective on your life. And of course, updates on the latest TV shows, twitter rants, and other books about horrible things.  

  • Episode 98: Ways to Kill a Mouse
    November 27th, 2019

    We shall overcome! Technical problems, scheduling problems, financial problems, and mouse in the house problems. Just in time for the holiday weekend, we've managed to get you an episode of Just the Worst Podcast. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We are thankful for YOU!

  • Episode 97: Just Another Serial Killer
    November 12th, 2019

    It's Episode #1 of the Just the Worst Book Club! We waited as long as we could, but now it's time to talk about "American Predator: The Hunt for the Most Meticulous Serial Killer of the 21st Century" by Maureen Callahan. Staying surprisingly on topic, we discuss all things Israel Keyes, who aside from being dead inside (except where his daughter is concerned), is really just another serial killer. That on occasion has sex with dead bodies. Before cutting them up and throwing them in a lake. Enjoy! And read American Predator! 

    We gathered additional information from everyone's go-to resource, YouTube:

    Catching a Serial Killer! America's Worst... Israel Keyes

    The Chilling Case of Israel Keyes

    The Most Terrifying Serial Killer You've Never Heard Of

  • Episode 96: Trainwreck
    November 6th, 2019

    True to form, we are back with a whimper. A few more technical difficulties... BUT WE DIDN"T LET THEM BEAT US! In this episode, we talk about the depression that is comparing ourselves to others, envy, forced camaraderie, and hills Val is willing to die on. 

  • Episode 95: Safe Sport?
    October 22nd, 2019

    We know what you're thinking. "Oh boy, here it is... a whole episode about horses. Knew this podcast was going to devolve to this." But no! Well, yes, but also no. Have you ever heard of SafeSport? It's the US sports world's answer to Larry Nasser. And along with most other sports (that quite honestly we don't care about) it's hit the equestrian world pretty hard. Call this episode a case study of the organization and help us decide if it's a good thing, bad thing, or just another thing. 

  • Episode 94: Dumpster Fire
    October 14th, 2019

    Welcome to our first remote episode! Have you ever tried to line up to audio tracks so the conversation sounds normal? Yeah, us either. But we tried. For you. So you could hear our opinions on American Horror Story, eating tiny song birds, victimhood, and other random topics. It's all going to get better from here! 

  • Episode 93: What's Their Excuse?
    September 23rd, 2019

    Patti has been making a valiant effort to take a cue from Valentina and WATCH MORE TV. Man, was that a mistake. First it was Unbelievable - which was infuriating. And then it was the Chelsea Handler documentary, also pretty unacceptable sh*t going on. But then. THEN came Surviving R Kelly. And holy hell people, what a cornucopia of horribleness. Hide your kids, hide your wife... this one is all about one Robert Kelly. 

  • Episode 92: Are You Skinny Fat?
    September 16th, 2019

    We meant to talk about bans, i.e. things that the U.S. has banned and how that worked out. But we had some technical difficulties. OK, many technical difficulties. And by the time those got fixed we'd moved on to the crazy body image things women are subjected to, smoking (and its assistance in reaching said body image), vaping (we did talk about the ban here), and some other stuff. 

  • Episode 91: Father Whatawaste
    September 9th, 2019

    This episode is a heavy one. Is there a god? Does he/she/it give you more than you can handle? Will the human era last longer than that of the dinosaurs? What is your favorite dinosaur? Why would anyone become a priest in this day and age? Have a story that is worthy of a t-shirt? Tell us about it and maybe we'll send you one.

  • Episode 90: Real Life Blows
    August 27th, 2019

    Well, sometimes life throws you a blow, and it blows.Come hang with us as we talk about death, workplace confessions you may live to regret, bingeable TV, 80's movies, and a bunch of other stuff. Probably horses. 

  • Episode 89: Terminal
    August 19th, 2019
  • Episode 88: The Return
    August 12th, 2019

    Surprise! It's been awhile, and so much has happened. Like what you say? Vacations, new prescriptions, quit jobs, make out sessions, visits from friends, Epstein "suicided", Trump was a dick, people are bad, etc. etc. Stay tuned for next week, when we might have a topic!

  • Episode 87: The End
    May 20th, 2019

    Well... that was... the end. Of an era. Of our HBO subscriptions. So listen - we're talking GOT spoilers. If you don't know, don't find out here. We also talk about social media, friendships, being self-centered, and oh yeah... fucking ALABAMA! And Kentucky. And Georgia. SOHs.

  • Episode 86: Spoilers
    May 13th, 2019

    Be advised, we are not talking about spoilers being the worst, we are spouting spoilers from the rooftops. You have been warned. We talk over the disappointments of the latest GOT episode, life in general, and always seeing the grass on the other side as greener. 

  • Episode 85: It's for Science
    May 5th, 2019

    Valentina is full of pettiness and rage and Patti listens to too many podcasts. In spite of that, we delve into the hard topics: death, midlife crises, finding fulfillment, the unfairness of people with money being able to do more things, etc. etc. Enjoy!
