Listen to the Landmark episode (and a couple after that) and the MNIK episode called The Studio.

Somewhere around the time when she and Lauren thought that watching Netflix documentaries basically equated to be experts on shit.
I stopped listening, but for different reasons. No longer commuting or going to work was a big one. Getting *way* too frustrated when I felt some *important* issue wasn't being given a fair shake (usually politics). Plus the drama. I get sucked into that way too much as well.

I download them and start listening on my commute into work, and it's just like it was 13 years ago when I downloaded Episode 2, there I am laughing out loud on the bus & getting the stink eye from my bus mates. Then I hear that Keith has a girlfriend and I think "What happened to his wife? How much have I missed?!"
Strangely enough, my path to catching up started with a random thought - something like "I wonder whatever happened to ol' Spooky?" So I Googled and searched the forums and then saw about Keith and Cat and then Chemda and Lauren and wow! So far I listened to Chemda's moment and Spooky's episode and I had similar emotions. But what really got me was the video clip from the 'sad news' episode. I've seen plenty of video, but I guess it was the humanity that shone through. Both of them went through some (even more/recent) hard times and it's a reminder that we're all human and shit happens and life isn't perfect. And it kinda melted away those 'reasons' I had for not listening. So I'm definitely queueing them up again.

Also, alcoholism? Guess I have more reading and listening to do!

Sometimes I lose track but it's never for any reason that has to do with the show. It's fully my flighty attention in choosing things to listen to while I'm working - I'll get distracted listening to a series of audiobooks, get obsessed with a particular group and listen to their music for weeks on end, etc. And suddenly months have gone by. Personally, I've loved following these two for all these years and seeing how they've changed as people, the way that all people do. This is the ONLY podcast that I've consistently followed. I have never and will never find another one like this, and I've listened to a lot of them over the years. It never matters how much time has passed when I come back. Firing up the show and listening again feels like stepping into an old friend's living room.

This is why I've listened for 12 years (sorry I caught you late, but I've listened to all the episodes I missed!). They're "real" in a way that so few other podcasts are (Hot Mess and The Long Shot Podcast, which KATG got me into, excepted). They're so open and, for the most part, help their guests be open too.

I fell out of the forums yeeeeaaaaars ago and I can't remember why, but now I'm back and everyone here is like a big family. It's fun to share my thoughts and feelings about the show as none of my friends really get it.
