Just the Worst
Things that are wonderful: the world, humanity, technology... Things that are THE WORST? Same list. Here's a podcast from your new favorite internet crabapples, Patti & Valentina. They're gonna gripe a lot about a little of everything.

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 GirlJanuary 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 UsJanuary 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 HacksJanuary 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.
- EPISODE 100: WE MADE ITDecember 11th, 2019
- Episode 99: Guns & DrugsDecember 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 MouseNovember 27th, 2019
- Episode 97: Just Another Serial KillerNovember 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:
- Episode 96: TrainwreckNovember 6th, 2019
- 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 FireOctober 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 WhatawasteSeptember 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 BlowsAugust 27th, 2019
- Episode 89: TerminalAugust 19th, 2019
Topics! Facts! Citations! Math! This episode is a cornucopia of pseudo-professionalism! After catching up on the week’s activities and tv adventures, we dive deep into America’s favorite disfunction - our healthcare system. And you guys… we’re f*ed.

- Episode 82: Us AgainApril 8th, 2019
- Episode 81: RoadtripsMarch 31st, 2019
Sometimes roadtrips are great. Sometimes they are just the worst. Like in today's stories. Kidnapping, child abuse, murder and mayhem... it's enough to make you just want to stay home from here on out. It's a crazy crazy world out there, filled with crazy crazy people. Keep an eye out, and keep your doors locked.
- Episode 80: BumsMarch 25th, 2019
- Episode 79: No Saints HereMarch 17th, 2019
We've entered an alternate reality where Valentina shows up with a topic and Patti barely shows up. On the list of this week's worst? Cosby, Jackson, C.K., Weinstein, and Carlson. Oh, and we can't forget Mr. No Fun at the office. Somewhere towards the end the topic of the day finally comes up as Val tells us how we are all the worst for knowing so little about a guy named Maewyn Succat.

- Episode 75: The Worst Kind of FluFebruary 10th, 2019
You really have to feel for people who are raised with so much immunity to consequences that they stumble into hurting people without any idea that they might get in trouble for it. Society can't just start holding them responsible for their actions can it? That wouldn't be fair. And we all know society, and especially the legal system, is fair.
- Episode 74 - No Good PlaceFebruary 3rd, 2019
Really people. Your guess is as good as ours. This week we offer movie reviews - three decades late. We play who wore it better ("it" being mass murder) with Ted Bundy versus Joseph Stalin. Patti randomly decided to watch tv and for once saw something Val hadn't... she was too busy trying to find parking.

- Episode 72: SongbirdsJanuary 13th, 2019
- Episode 71: We'll Try Harder Next TimeJanuary 6th, 2019
Between trying to recover from a cold and trying to recover from a hangover, this is all we got... It might be that this episode isn't worth publishing but whatever, we took the time to record it so here you go! Next week we will be back at you with terrible tales of all the worst things happening in the world.
- Episode 70: Just MehDecember 30th, 2018
- Episode 69: #ManifestDecember 23rd, 2018
- Episode 68: White Lady LaneDecember 16th, 2018
It's been a long couple of weeks people. But just as we've been busy, the world has been busy doing terrible things... like protesting Rudolph the Red-nose Reindeer. We're pretty sure we've crossed the ever-moving line of political correctness in this one, but it's impossible to tell until someone calls us ut about it. In any case, here is your episode. Enjoy!
- Episode 67: Do They Know it's Christmas...December 9th, 2018
- Episode 66: And They Looked so HarmlessDecember 2nd, 2018
What happens when you take a week off from podcasting and go home to celebrate the holidays with your parents? You spend the weekend rummaging through boxes of old pictures and take a trip down memory lane. Oh, and you also revert right back to your teenage self and realize those family dynamics are hard to shake!
- Episode 65: Low CharismaNovember 18th, 2018
On this special holiday episode of Just the Worst, we do for podcasting what Henry Cavill does for Superman. That is to say, not a lot. We're burned out and overwhelmed with all that is wrong with the world, the fires in California, the famine in Yemen, the killing of journalists by the Saudis, etc. etc. Plus, having to move two times in one month? The WORST.
- Episode 64: Meddlin'November 11th, 2018
If you are wondering why people are fleeing South American countries for somewhere safer, the first place to look is right here in the USA. Turns out, we're pretty big on messing around with other governments for our own benefit, without too much worry about how it is going to effect the people who actually live in that country. Warning: this is not a comprehensive history - it is much simplified and in the JTW tradition, probably a little muddled.
- Episode 63: Anthony Corduroy?November 4th, 2018
- Episode 62: Stuck in the Middle with YouOctober 29th, 2018
To all my friends! Especially those of you that get this episode on a visceral level. It's pretty much the worst living in addiction or with someone who is. These days there aren't many people whose lives haven't been affected in some way. But if not, here's a little glimpse into this bummer of an affliction.
- Episode 61: Make a Wish!October 21st, 2018
- Episode 60: Do Not Get in the VanOctober 14th, 2018
How has this story not been told on every single one of the zillions of true crime pods we listen to??? Vague childhood memories come to the present day in this episode, as we discuss this crazy-ass but seemingly forgotten Southern California serial killer. Whatever you do, do. not. get. in. the. van.
- Episode 59: Everything is AwfulOctober 7th, 2018
- Episode 58: All Oiled UpSeptember 30th, 2018
We don't know if you know this, but it turns out that the human race is like totally destroying the planet. There are million ways we are doing this, but this episode looks at just one. And it's something that seems innocuous. It's in peanut butter. It's in soap. It's in practically everything it seems. It's called palm oil and it's ruining everything!!
- Episode 57 - Another Person's TuesdaySeptember 23rd, 2018
- Episode 56: Golden YearsSeptember 16th, 2018
This week we talk aging. With very little research but with more personal experience than we wish we had, we discuss all the bull*!% things that happen as we get older. From losing hair or graying hair, to wrinkles and turkey necks, to your body not acting like it used to and your metabolism slowing down, aging blows. And we're here this week to tell you all about it. This one is for you Axel! Enjoy!
- Episode 55: Crossing the StreamsSeptember 9th, 2018
Hello hello! This week is another banter episode. Patti suprisingly displays some knowledge of pop culture and Val mentions she may be trying to take pork out of her diet and went a couple days where wine wasn't that great to drink! We might be rubbing off on each other! Also, there may be a little more horse talk than strictly necessary... sorry about that!
