Episode 12: There’s Room For Wine Moms In The Revolution (featuring Sara Wachter-Boettcher)

February 1, 2018

Nicole and Marty return from their extended hiatus with a brand-new episode, and they go through an update of all the news (good and bad) that's happened since we last recorded! As part of the roundup, we talk about new gender wage laws in Iceland, review the anniversary of the Women's March, recap the opening of the Time;s Up movement, stumble through the many Aziz Ansari takes, and scream at the top of our lungs about the sentencing of former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

After the break, we talk to Sara Wachter-Boettcher, author of Technically Wrong: Sexist Apps, Biased Algorithms, and Other Threats of Toxic Techabout the myriad ways biases and cultural insensitivites appear in the technology we use every day. From racist Snapchat filters to prejudiced legal software, Wachter-Boettcher explains how our tech isn't as objective as we think it is - and what can be done about it all.

Episode 11: “Maybe Avoid Asking About Genitals Altogether”

December 17, 2017

In the last show before the holidays, Nicole and Marty answer an e-mail from a listener wanting to be a feminist man without being a Male Feminist. Then the Not Each Other crew takes on the retirement of Al Franken (because we're constantly at the very edge of the news cycle).

Finally, Marty and Nicole talk to a special guest about coming out as trans in her workplace, and the awkward situations that a new wave of representation has created for her.

Bonus Material: Nicole Explains THE SHINING

December 1, 2017

Hey folks, no new episode this week - but we're working on a great one! In the meantime, here's some bonus material from about a month ago when Nicole watched The Shining for the first time and wasn't fully aware of what it was about going into it. (Just wait until she see Rosemary's Baby!)

Nicole gets into her feelings on the sinister relationship-abuse subtext, and Marty offers some behind-the-scenes info (while getting the name of the lead actress wrong the entire time.) And in true Not Each Other style, there's some sidetracksinto the life of Frankie Muniz and the pecking order of Jewish holidays. Give it a listen!

Episode 10: Economics and Dad-onomics

November 19, 2017

In this episode, Marty vents his frustration at People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for making him care about People Magazine for a few days. Then we try to help a listener worried about falling into the trap of becoming the "household manager", Nicole tells of her father's interesting perspective on Thanksgiving math, and we debate the labor division of holiday planning. Spoiler alert: Nicole gets depressed.

Next, we talk to financial literacy advocate and personal finance expert Catie Hogan of Hogan Financial Planning about her new book The Millennial's Guide to Getting Your Sh*t Together. Catie will explain how taking control of her finances makes her a better feminist, how financial literacy has become a precious commodity, and share how she got her shit together enough to write a book about it.

All that, plus a trip to ranch dressing town on this Thanksgiving edition of Not Each Other.

Episode 9: Maybe Your Point Is Terrible and You Shouldn’t Be Making It!

November 10, 2017

Back at home, Nicole and Marty recap their favorite conference speaker and their favorite new word. Then, we try to help a listener who is having trouble talking about sexism with... other women?! Also, Marty wonders if he accidentially let his neighbor tell racist jokes.

Then we have a great interview with badass lady Rachel Robbins, who practices "uniforming" - wearing the same work outfit every day. Rachel fills us in on how simplifying her wardrobe simplified her life, and we discuss the judgements and standards men and women recieve around their clothes. As a bonus, we discover that for the most party, people aren't as judgey as we think they are.

Episode 7: Fake Founders and First Offenses

September 30, 2017

It's a new episode of Not Each Other (that's actually two new episodes fused together. It's complicated). In the first batch, Marty and Nicole discuss Penelope Gazin and Kate Dwyer of Witchsy, two female entrepenuers who found that they recieved a lot more respect from their subcontractors and other business associates when their male co-founder Keith handled the business end. One thing though - Keith doesn't actally exist. Next,  Marty introduces Nicole to advertising icon/object of conservative hatred "Pajama Boy" as they discuss possibly the worst ways men can respond to news of  a natural disaster. Finally, some surprising information about Home Improvement star Rim Allen.

CORRECTION: In this episode, Marty says that Witchsy used their fictional co-founder to talk to investors. This is incorrect. Witchsy was/is self-funded.

In the second half of the show, Marty does his Yom Kippur apologizing and explains why Judaism has the best Return on Investment of all major religions. Then Marty and Nicole rage against the world of internet film critics - of which Marty is one - for their embrace of noted harrassers and assaulter like Devin Faraci and Harry Knowles. (Content Warning: The second half of this episode contains discussion of harrasment and assault). Nicole tells a story about the concept of "first offenses" and Marty screams into the void about the constant redemption of terrible people. It's... it's not a fun one, folks.

Episode 6: You Would Never Ask Drake To Stop Being Petty.

September 8, 2017

Nicole and Marty return from a month off where they got some "real America" experience traversing the Red States. Nicole gets a heap of southern hospitality and Marty attends a Midwest country wedding. Nicole rattles off some nonsensical Mainer sayings and Marty is baffled by matrimonial ceremonies and giant racist statues. 

Next, Nicole and Marty get into Taylor Swift's new "bad girl" image, and Nicole has some thoughts about the various ways successful women get criticized. (Some good and valid, several others... not so much.) 

Finally, the Not Each Other team speaks with Will Manidis, an incoming college student who already has his own tech startup improving the lives of Parkinson's patients. Will considered over 22 universities before settling on one, and the biggest issue he faced? Trying to find a Computer Science program with some semblance of gender balance. Will talks about why this is important, where many universities are failing, and understanding "living life on so many levels of privilege."

Episode 5: “Why are you asking the nearest vagina to solve your problems?”

August 7, 2017

It's episode five and Marty and Nicole are taking on the topic of Emotional Labor - all those little things that the women in your life are expected to know because "that's what girls do." We take on the chore war, family obligations, and the vast differences between being Team Bride and Team Groom. Plus, Marty breaks some movie news to Nicole that breakes her heart.
