The day has finally arrived! The littlest Smirl sister has packed her bags and moved into her first college dorm. From giant cardboard moving bins to mini fridges on mini fridges, the sisters have covered every possible facet of the college move in experience, so come join us!

Well, the time has come for our littlest sister's final episode still living at home, this time next week she'll be all on her own in her big girl college dorm! In honor of this momentous occasion, we're talking about the (maybe pointless) college tradition of orientation, complete with campus tours and "safety" talks.

We're sorry we missed our episode last week! All three sisters were on island time, and podcasting can get tricky when you're on an actual island. But, we're back this week and ready to talk about all those awkward family dinners you may have dealt with as a teen. Whether they were at your house, a friend's, or (worse of all) a significant other's, there have always been difficulties with them all and we want to talk about them!

Our babiest Smirl is moving into her very first dorm in just about three short weeks, so our oldest sisters are giving her the perfect list of dorm essentials so she starts her freshman year in the best dorm possible! Even if she becomes known as the girl who talks about Tetris in Spanish and eats mac and cheese at 2 in the morning, at least Rileigh will have her noodle pot.

In celebration of the remake of the hit teen game show "Double Dare," the sisters are talking all of the classic game shows of the 90s, from "Wild and Crazy Kids" to "Nick Arcade" and all the way into the teen-centric reality shows of today, we've covered it all. So come get Super Sloppy with us!

Happy Pride Month! To celebrate this wonderful time of the year, the sisters were joined by one of Rileigh's long time friends, Elizabeth, a teen member of the LGBTQ+ community. This week, Elizabeth joins Rileigh in being the teen voice of our show, and along with our middlest sister, the two explore what being "definitely not straight" as a teen of yesterday and today has been like for them.

Our littlest Smirl sister went on a teen adventure this past weekend where she made some decisions that probably weren't the smartest, and our other sisters realized they'd done the same things (and some dumber things too.) So we're cliff diving into the dumb things all teens do and why they do them, come jump in with us!

In the first ever extra early morning edition of Still Buffering, the sisters dive into all of the differences that exist in consumable media of today vs. of the 90s. From Blockbuster to Netflix and the radio to Apple Music and Spotify, a lot has changed in the way we share the media we enjoy with each other and in the ways we get that media, so let's talk about them!

Have you ever doubted that the Earth is round? Or believed that Avril Lavigne is not really still OUR Avril? Then chances are, you might be a teen and you might have been exposed to some crazy Internet conspiracy theories, and today we're diving deep into that rabbit hole, so come join us!

The day is finally here, the day our littlest Smirl sister has officially graduated high school! Before we dive into summer break, we're going over all the high points of the social event of the season: (apparently?) Rileigh's high school's graduation. From the speeches to the awards ceremonies, we've got it all. So come join us in congratulating our babiest of sisters.

Well, our littlest Smirl sister has completed high school at last. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're taking a look back at all of our high school years and discussing all of our regrets, best moments, and advice to our past selves and all of you cool teens who are still in high school. Come join us on our walk down memory road since we're all officially high school graduates now!

Live from the Columbus Podcast Festival, the sisters play the hot teen game, The Game of Phones! Although Teylor got it confused with something else and it turned into an emoji-off, it still made for some fun, sisterly rivalry live from the Short North Stage in beautiful Columbus, Ohio!

Backpacks. An integral part of every teen/school experience. Something that seems as if it's remained constant throughout time, but has it? Despite the general idea remaining the same, a lot has changed about how the teens use their backpacks and what they keep in them, and sadly, they can't return them and get a new one for free every time it breaks now.

So Sydnee found this book, and it's a very bad book, but it makes for very good talking points on our show, so that's what we're sharing with you today. Apparently teen girls in the 80s had a lot of rules, from archetype roles they had to fit into to how they could eat corn, there's a lot there to talk about and we're doing it all.

Teens these days are living their lives inside of their apps, and not the delicious kind that you eat before dinner, but the tech kind that live in their phones! So we're consulting the internets and finding what apps adults think teens are into and what apps other teens think teens are into to see who's actually right.

Our babiest sister is fresh off of Senior Prom weekend and is here to give us the inside scoop!

From dancing to "DJs" and everything else we've covered a cool t33n prom from start to finish.

Happy week 2 of the MaxFunDrive! To celebrate our youngest Smirl's impending graduation, we decided to come up with a definitive playlist of the best songs to encapsulate the aura of senior year and graduation, from Vitamin C to Taylor Swift these sisters have all of their decades covered, and you're in for a TREAT.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, the MaxFunDrive! To kick off our yearly celebration of our MaximumFun family, we're diving into the most popular "teen life hacks" of the 90s and of today, and if any of them actually do what they're supposed to do and, well, hack your life.

It's Sydnee's birthday, so she can finally run for president! Also, our babiest sister just got back from a fun, big kid road trip, so we're talking about them! From the perfect car snack, to music, to road trip duties based on seating position, we have created the ten commandments of road trips, so come on a trip with us!

We've joked for a long time about our collective feelings towards Claire's, a mall staple for decades, and now (maybe unsurprisingly?) they're closing for good. So let's take a look back on what malls were for teens "back in the day" and what they are now!

As requested by a listener, Emma, this week, the sisters are talking about flirting! Sydnee is a self-proclaimed "expert" in flirting, Rileigh believes she is somewhere in the middle, and Teylor is very open about how bad she thinks she is at flirting. From the ~look~ to the mixtapes, flirting spans the ages, just like our sisters, so let's talk about it!

The new Netflix original, "Everything Sucks!" was basically designed to be discussed on our podcast, so here we are discussing it! On our podcast! From stereotypical 90s fashion to the 90s being /that/ 90s, we've covered it all, so of course, there will be spoilers if you haven't seen the show yet. But, it only takes five hours to watch the whole first season, so we'll see you when you're done binging.

It's been a rough week here in America, and we want to talk about it because it seems like teenagers are finally on the front page for something other than Tide pods and fidget spinners, and that something is much bigger than teens have been known for in recent history. (Also, this week we're joined by our favorite fourth host, Cooper McElroy!)
