Episode the Hiatus!

Posted on August 1st, 2016

Your buds Dave and Kat are taking a bit of a summer break! So consider Episode the Josh your season finale.

We’ve been going strong for the better part of two years, and we need to take a brief sabbatical to recharge the ol’ batteries, focus on life stuff, hang out without podcasts, and think about what we want for this crazy, beautiful thing we’ve got going.

Worth mentioning: We’re going to do dope shit like perform on shows, go to Garbage concerts together, start new jobs, tour the Southeast, and be awesome in a totally normal way during this slight hiatus. It’s going to kick ass, and we want you to tell us what you’re kicking ass at. Because we love you, and you’re awesome.

So, while we take off August… SEND US YOUR QUESTIONS. We’ll be back in September to answer them, and continue with even more well-meaning, very blunt, day-drinking advice.

We love you all!

Your pals,

Advice! with Dave & Kat: Episode the 35th!

Posted on November 23rd, 2015

Greetings and salutations from episode the 35th! This week Dave and Kat tackle far ranging topics, like what’s the best type of utensil, how old is too old for roommates, and what do you do when someone’s being awful? Turns out, the pair share a respect for the turducken of cutlery, a belief that there’s no such thing as too old (so long as it’s for the right reasons), and aren’t amused by bad behavior.

Stand up for yourself. Stand up for others. Take it seriously. Cheers!

Advice! with Dave & Kat: Episode the 34th!

Posted on November 16th, 2015

Cheers and welcome to episode the 34th! This week Dave & Kat were celebrating National Vodka Day with a trifecta of questions about privacy, popularity, and pointlessness. Privacy is for people you trust. Better to be loved by few than liked by many, and changing your path can mean huge sacrifice before any reward. Prepare yourself and do the work. Cheers!

Advice! with Dave & Kat: Episode the 27th!

Posted on September 28th, 2015

Namaste! This time out Dave and Kat talk discuss the power of self-delusion and the coded meanings of men’s fashion choices. Sometimes you’ve got to tell yourself you love mornings, even though you love sleep. The best way out is always through, and cargo shorts are the yoga pants of men’s clothing: fine as a choice, not fine as a default.

Tie in! Cheers!

Advice! with Dave & Kat: Episode the 24th!

Posted on September 7th, 2015

Welcome to Episode 24! This time Dave & Kat talk about finding direction when you’re in the wilderness, how to handle polite rejection, and modelling good behavior. Fun fact: Dave’s love of the robot voice is like nails on a chalkboard to Kat. Everyone’s trying to do their best. Sometimes time and distance are what the heart needs. Do the work. You’ll figure it out.

Good game! Cheers!

Advice! with Dave & Kat: Episode the 20th!!

Posted on August 10th, 2015

Greetings from episode the 20th! If episodes were cats, this would be a really sad visit home. Good thing episodes are episodes and not anthropomorphic beings. This week, Dave & Kat tackle some interpersonal conflict. Specifically, they get into what to do when your boyfriend won’t play out a rom-com scenario, how to validate and support your children, and the hypocrisy of harshly judging your friends ‘that you’re worried about.’

Don’t encourage others to get in fights, keep up with your friends, and believe in your children. Cheers!

Cheers and welcome to episode the 19th! Dave and Kat talk about how to talk to strangers, how to give good gifts, and how to train your roommate to train the dog. (Hint: it’s not quite how to train your dragon) The duo also get into some of their greatest fears (deep dark water and movies about boats) and dreams (kids who talk like parrots!).

Talk to your roommates, talk to strangers, and listen to your friends. Cheers!

Advice! with Dave & Kat: Episode the 18th!

Posted on July 27th, 2015

Episode 18 is ready to rock! This week Dave and Kat tackle difficult questions about friendship and housesitting. Making friends is hard to do but so necessary. Sometimes friends throw shade at your job, shine your light anyway. And sometimes ‘friends’ bring things they shouldn’t to your house. Dear grifter friends, an honest day’s work is always better than selling coke out of other people’s homes.

Remember: you can’t get a houseboat and be into bowling. Put yourself out there. Be the best you you can be. Cheers!
