Writer and lavender farmer, Melissa J. Broughton drops by the podcast to talk about finding a place in Buellton, renting with an artist's credit history, growing up in a one-stoplight town, California's cost of living, running away after her divorce, remembering those palm trees, not having the things you thought you would, how writing a college handbook put her through college, being inspired by an airplane thief, her eclectic resumé, ghosting, wanting and not wanting kids, owning her daddy issues, progressing into alcoholism, celebrating her sobriety with a glass of wine, little sprinkles of divine intervention, and drinking Axl Rose's bath water.

Writer Josh Cornell stops by the podcast to talk about the most relaxing song ever written, a play about his tumultuous relationship, making horror films, going to law school, joint custody, tea time, anger, whether protesting can help anything, riling up a whole political party, comments sections, adversarial politics, the God who would send his grandfather to hell, being upset with your parents, raising kids in two different households, whether another God created God, Moon Boy, and Bad Guy Getter.

In celebration of TWO full years of the Are We Okay? Podcast, Alli Wallace and Weston Scott drop by the podcast to talk about the difference between a bush and a tree, discussing politics with guests, the JFK assassination, Uncle Sam's unrequited relationship with his stepson, astral traveling with Cindy Martin, Kenny Gracia's theistic civility, the songs we would strip to, Johnny Wilson's marathon episode, how I feel about frisbee golf, sharing a cheesecake and mimosas with Jenn Hix, whether I'll ever hang out with Jesslyn Brundy, Justin Meddings' Bob Dole jokes, the strangest trolley tour of our lives, stuffing a turkey's wife, Danielle Churchill's green light for empathy, Dallas Bronson's butt, supporting your artist friends like Neal Breton, Savannah Nicholson's growth mindset, being desperate for Ben Ayers' attention, making an album alongside a weekly podcast, Larry Delinger's journals, and trying to live up to Ian Hassett's example. Then we answer a handful of rapid-fire questions, and play a game of Brat Pack Fact Attack: Rat Pack Smacks Back!
