It's been a bit of a rough week for all of us, hasn't it? We started it all off with Tax Day, and we should have known then it'd be a little bit of a bad one. So to celebrate(?) the holiday that is tax season, we're talking about money! What do you do with it once you get it as a teen for the first time? What are taxes? Is credit a thing? Is debt good?

Well, our sisters have returned on no day other than National Sibling Day! To celebrate, we're talking about the hippest of controversies happening with teens today: Operation Blue Ivy...or Blue Varsity? Varsity Ivy???

IT'S STILL THE MAXFUNDRIVE! To wrap-up and continue to celebrate this joyous season, we're continuing a tradition we started last year during the MaxFunDrive. Last year, Rileigh quizzed her sisters on how much teen knowledge they had gained from her throughout the years, and this year the older sisters are doing the same. Does Rileigh know anything about 90s teens? Or anything about the 90s at all? (Also, there may be a secret in this episode somewhere...)

IT'S THE MAXFUNDRIVE! To celebrate this most wonderful time of year, we brought on our favorite teen of the future, Charlie Gail McElroy! We wanted to find out what the teens of tomorrow are going to be listening to, watching, and doing, so we went straight to the source. Come join all four of us, and don't forget to become a member of the MaxFun family this MaxFunDrive!

We're back with part 2 of our Women's History Month extravaganza! This week, we're discussing some of our fictional female role models, and how female representation for teens in media has changed over time. From Buffy to Hermione and even some princesses, we've got it all, so come celebrate some super cool fictional females with us!

It's Women's History Month! To celebrate this month of celebration, we're all sharing our most inspiring and influential female role models throughout our teen years and beyond. They made us who we are today, and we want to celebrate them! So come share some of your favorite female icons with us!

It only took us a year, but we're back with another "Ask a Teen!" We've collected all of your questions like "a squirrel with nuts" as Sydnee would say, and are ready to answer all of them. We go from how to make excuses to get out of plans, to toxic friends, to technology, and we want you there for all of it! Come join us!

We've talked a lot before about the growing "woke-ness" of this generation, but we haven't spent much time discussing how it is helping our planet. Back in the day, teens knew to recycle and cut those plastic rings, but what else have teens learned throughout the years? Are we really helping? Are ducks okay???

Feb 13, 2019

The older sisters realized that back in the day there would be widespread cultural moments that thousands of teens everywhere shared, whether it was as a TV series finale or a new album release, there were things to share with people you'd never meet. Do those even still exist for the teens of today? Does live tweeting count?

As we all continue on our path to a tidy living space, we've realized that as teens we can tend to keep a lot of "sentimental" things that we really probably shouldn't, or maybe even throw out things that we wish we hadn't. So let's talk about what we really really should keep and what could maybe be tossed, like every movie ticket you've ever received *cough Rileigh cough*.

All we can talk about this week is the disaster that was the Fyre Festival, so we wanted to find a way we could talk about it on our podcast, and we did! Influencers played a huge role in the Fyre Fest and they weren't even around a decade or so ago, so what are they and where did they come from? Also how do dogs poop when it's this cold??

We all made it to Seattle for the podcasting event of the year, PodCon2! To commemorate this momentous occasion, we're hosting the first ever "Young Adult Selection Commendations" or something like that that won't get us in trouble for copyright. We're pitting greats like The Hunger Games against...Bunnicula? And the results are definitely going to surprise you.

We're all three obsessed with Marie Kondo and her tidiness (because like, who isn't?) and we want to talk about it, so we're talking about dorm room organization! What do college kids do with all that extra space now that they don't have to store and display their CDs and DVDs and video games? Let's find out!

Happy New New! To celebrate the start of a brand new year, we're talking about our resolutions! You know, those things that everyone talks about but most people forget about by February? Well, we're going over all those hip teen resolutions, as well as what 90s kids should make their resolutions? Is this really a thing? Oh well, let's find out!

Sadly, the holiday season has come to a close, but thankfully we're still in that weird stretch of days where we're all still acting like it's a holiday break! Since our littlest sister has come home for the first time after being away at school, we're going all in on what it truly means to be a back home baller and come home.

It's the holiday season, which means it's that time of year where everyone remembers that "Baby It's Cold Outside" is kind of a problematic song and we all discuss why, so we wanted to join! We also talk about all of our favorite and not so favorite songs and the dreaded Wham-aggedon.

HE'S BACK! Our Christmas King has returned and we're here to talk aalll about that royal wedding. We still aren't sure how the royal lineage works in Aldovia or what meat jelly is or why Emily isn't queen but here we are, one whole year later, ready to tackle these issues with you.

Our oldest sister is traveling this week, so we've replaced her with our mom! The holiday season has arrived once again, so we're helping you come up with the perfect gift list for your teen in your life! Some of them may be a little out of date, but they're teen gifts all the same!

Nov 23, 2018

Well, it's Thanksgiving, but we wanted to give you something to listen to so you can recover from all of those conversations you had to have probably about politics or something with your family. So we're talking about bras! And underwear! And hats for breastfeeding moms! Wait, what?

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?

Oct 23, 2018

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!

Oct 18, 2018

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!

Oct 11, 2018

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!
