This week, we get in the mood for summer with new suggestions from Michelle and my book corner. We also explore a new medical oddity: a sixty year-old stone baby and the 89 year-old, strong-willed lady in which it was found. Then we talk about ghost stories—just in time for your summer campfires.
Hey friends, followers, and fiends,
After weeks and weeks of travel, work, projects and other things that take us away from the fun of podcasting for YOU, we are BACK with new episodes of Girls Poop Rainbows!
In this BONUS-LENGTH (“That’s what she said!” – Michelle) episode, we talk about what Michelle and I have been up to these last couple of weeks. From theater and web series to teaching and dating, find out all about our trials and tribulations.
Plus, pick up awesome tips on topics like painting plywood and using YouTube videos in your dating profiles!
A few months ago, my friend, producer Patrick Terry, told me about an incredible project that he was working on. It was a physical pilgramage, a series of concerts, and the making of a documentary−all in one. Featuring internationally acclaimed cellist Dane Johansen, who will be walking the 600 miles of Spain’s Camino de Santiago and performing Bach’s cello suites along the way, this unique journey is sure to inspire. If you’d like to learn more about the project and/or join me in supporting it, please check out their Kickstarter page or Facebook page.
We know that you guys are some of the funniest, most brilliant listeners there are on the interwebs. Not only are you guys full of pithy one liners and great suggestions for us, you probably also have amazing ideas about cool products and businesses too.
With that in mind, we want to draw your attention to a cool competition from our friends at WayFounder. From now until June 8th, you can submit your ideas in four categories (Baby & Parent, Pets, Home & Garden, Wild Card) for a chance to get your idea funded and developed. Here’s what they have to say:
WayFounder will choose at least one winner for this competition and potentially four winners, one per category. Winners receive a $10,000 USD cash prize. WayFounder commits a minimum of $50,000 USD to bring that product to market, at which point the winner receives a 5% royalty on all sales of that product. If the product is successful, WayFounder will invest another $250,000 to hire an experienced CEO to grow that single product into a viable and sustainable business, and the winner will receive 5% founder equity in a new company. Full details of the compensation packages can be viewed in the official Rules.

Never fret, listeners! You can take this as an opportunity to listen to our first 16 episodes and share your favorite segments in the comments OR recommend new content for us to check out for future episodes.
You can also take this as an opportunity to check out some of the fabulous comedy podcasts we recommend in episode 16:
In this episode, find out why Zontee was wandering around Austin for 2 hours in the middle of the night and why Michelle can’t stand men who adore Scarface! We explore the trials and tribulations of SXSW, as well as sharing Zontee’s recommended documentaries to see. Then we talk about 4 comedy podcasts we’re currently enjoying. And finally, Michelle rants about the male obsession with films that glorify drugs, sex, and booze.

It’s time for spring fever, here on Girls Poop Rainbows! But first, we explore (almost) unbelievable facts about history, share some life lessons about dating and how not to eff it up, and then we wax poetic about the awesome things there are to do in New York City in springtime!
No episode this week—things are busy here in NewYorkLand, so in the meantime, here’s the really awesome episode of Inside the Actors Studio featuring the cast of How I Met Your Mother in which James Lipton and the cast just have a hell of a time…
