The sisters are joined by a VERY special guest this week, Hank Green! Rileigh has attempted in the past to share her knowledge of Youtube, but this week we've brought in an expert who can teach us ALL about kids who make bank off slime videos and maybe what Team 10 really is? Also, go check out his new book, "An Absolutely Remarkable Thing" and get tickets to come see all of us at PodCon in January!

The spooky season has come to a close, but before we depart from this most wonderful time of year, we want to talk about trick or treating! Sure, it may be something some people stop doing early on in their teen years, but do we really have to?

It's that ~spooky~ time of year again, and our sisters want to talk about one of the spookiest experiences of the teen and adult Halloween experience: haunted houses! Some go a little too far for our sisters, but among the three of them there's a wide range of openness to spook, so come listen and get spooky with us!

Well, 2/3 of our sisters are off being famous authors and illustrators on whirlwind book tours, so our littlest sister has put together a third edition of "Best of Buffering!" She's put together some of their best bits throughout the past few months, from Sydnee Smirl the Science Girl to the Claire's extravaganza from PodCon, we've got it all! Come join us!

Rileigh has been obsessed with Shane Dawson's recent Youtube documentary series, and Sydnee is very confused by that idea, so we're going full documentary nerd! From Sydnee's weird obsession with Burning Man to the rise of Buzzfeed Unsolved and very meta Youtuber documentaries about other Youtubers, we're letting our documentarian flags fly and going all in. Come join us!

We know we've talked about friends before, but we realized that non-male friendships in the media kinda get a bad rep, and no one really understands why? Like, could Clueless have done without the boys? And are Rizzo and Sandy really the best duo in all of Grease? Come answer these really important questions with us!

So, there's this show on Netflix called "American Vandal," and all three of us are kind of obsessed with it recently? And it's about teens? So, we're going to talk about it, because it's funny and as it turns out, insightful about teen life as well! Be warned: minor spoilers involved for both seasons, but the identity of neither teen criminal is revealed.

Now stick with us here, we know you hear "shoes" is our topic and you're like, come on sisters, that's the best you have for us?

The sisters are back! Fresh from a brief hiatus, the Smirl girls are here to discuss roommates. Rileigh has officially lived with her roommates for about a month now, so she's qualified to talk about living with them, right? From creepy dolls to stinky dishes, the sisters have had a wide range of roommate experiences and are here to talk about them ALL.

You have all watched (well, listened to) our littlest Smirl go through some pretty big changes recently, and now she's going through another. Long distance relationships are a part of a lot of people's college experiences, and now Rileigh's too. Come join our oldest sisters in helping her through this transition and give her some goofs too!

Last week she was moving into her dorm, and this week our littlest Smirl has become a full-fledged college student! We're talking all about how different the first day of college is compared to other first days we've discussed in the past, from the difference between professors and teachers, to the secret formula for creating a full sized refrigerator, we've got it all! Come start school with 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!

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!
