Episode 013: Fun Staycation Ideas

On Episode 13 of Joy Sandwich, Jessica (@readschmead) and Non (@subjectplusverb) stay true to the season and talk about fun STAYCATION ideas! If you don't know, a staycation is a vacation wherein you stay close to home! Sometimes we don't have the money to go places. Sometimes you have pets (two big dogs and two gargantuan horses like we do!) which makes it difficult to go places. The good news is that you don't need to go anywhere to have a fun vacation! On this episode of Joy Sandwich, we chat about the upcoming GISHWHES week, matinee movies, water fights, board game nights, museum trips, creative hours, surf days, and so many more amazing staycation ideas for families, friends, partners, lovers, nerds, and pets! We'd love to hear about your staycation experience, or if you have any fun staycation ideas. Tweet us @NerdQuestHQ, and thanks so very much for listening!

And, as always, embrace your joy!

Episode 012: Music From Our Youth

On Episode 12 of Joy Sandwich, Jessica and Non chat about some of their favorite and most memorable music from their pre-teenage and teenage years! Music from our youth! Plus, Non sings poorly but as only a giddy nerd can, Jessica battles her desires to be Madonna and Cyndi Lauper and a unicorn simultaneously, and both of them reminisce about the tunes that really kicked off their independence.
