Oh, the wonderful world of Pinterest and YouTube DIY videos. This week, we're taking a trip into the rabbit hole that is crafting and DIYing as a teen, and why we all loved it so much. Whittling, anyone?

This week, the sisters made a special crossover episode with Neat! The Boozecast while on Island Time straight from a sports themed bedroom with only three microphones and no mic stands, and boy is it something special.

The sisters have island time on the mind as they're all about to go on their annual family beach trip, so they're taking a look back at all of the hit summer blockbusters of years' past, and more specifically it seems, Jaws?? Like, a LOT of Jaws???

So, Sydnee gets a monthly box full of Nickelodeon merch from all the old, classic cartoons, and we figured that's something we can talk about, right? This is something, right? At least, that's what we asked ourselves as we sat down to record, and we hope you agree with this decision.

It's America's (belated) birthday! To celebrate, we're talking about all of the pretty dumb things we do with fireworks and fire crackers and just fire in general as teens and beyond, come celebrate a little late with us, won't you?

Well, now our babiest Smirl has had the experience of living with roommates for a full year, and she's about to do it all again next year, so does she have any new thoughts to share now that she's an experienced roommate? Does she have anything to keep in mind before next year? How long is too long for towel time? Come find out with us!

We all did it as angsty emotional teens, didn't we? Filled notebooks and notes apps with long, dramatic, heartbreak poems? Or was that just Sydnee and Rileigh?

Okay, we have some serious opinions about commercials of the 90s, but who doesn't? They were all kinda the same, we all still remember ALL of them, and most importantly, we can't figure out what happened to them?

We realized in the entire 3+ years of this show that we had NEVER dedicated an entire episode to the entity that is ~the internet~. So we're going deep to examine all those differences between the world pre and post internet, and why did we all take the same typing courses??

Rileigh's enjoying a beach vacation, so Sydnee and Teylor capitalize on the opportunity to reflect on all the great stuff about being an adult.

Upon a recent trip with Rileigh to the mall, Sydnee made a shocking discovery: teens don't wear tons of jewelry anymore??? What ever happened to the giant earring books and hemp chokers and toe rings?? We must investigate.

We all made them as teens, you know, those homemade movies and videos that are horribly put together and have little to no actual plot but that we LOVED to make? The only difference now is that teens are putting all of them on the internet...which actually is a pretty big difference now that we think about it.

It's almost summertime, which means the teens will be home all day every day and looking for something to do. So what are some fun activities for the modern teen who's bored? The older sisters had some methods of their own for killing time, and they're...interesting.

It's finals season for Rileigh, and it seems like sleep is one key part of life that she isn't doing too great on. Not to mention curfews, party times, and how late we get to sleep in, the sisters all have some sleep habits they probably could do better on, so let's try to get some rest, shall we?

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?

Apr 10, 2019

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!

Feb 19, 2019

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?

Feb 5, 2019

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*.

Jan 31, 2019

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??
