This week, Jeena makes a podcast about a podcast! The topic this week is The Joe Rogan Experience, featuring Rogan first-timer, actress Xenia LeBlanc and spirited apologist, comic/writer Sarah Afkami. The lively discussion begins with a single episode of Rogan but quickly enlarges into broader topics on gender, civilized discourse and cancel culture. And there is still time for jokes about strap-ons! There are some very sensitive topics and some very surprising reveals, so grab your mass-building supplements and listen now!
I Hope, I Hope this Ruined your Childhood (Ghos...
Jeena's guests this week, NYC comics Emily Walsh and Phil Rizdon do a movie swap! Emily has never seen the original 1984 Ghostbusters but has seen the 2016 all-female reboot while Phil is an 84 Ghostbusters fan that never saw the reboot. And then, they swap movies and discuss! As it turns, everybody thinks both movies are pretty ok! None of this excuses the Fallout Boy theme song for the 2016 reboot, which everybody agrees should have drawn all of the internet's hate. The gang discusses both the toxic parts of nerd culture and the need to create original, non-rebooted material for the ladies in this lively and friendly discussion of a topic that got irrationally racist and ugly just 3 years ago. Listen now and relive all the confusing controversy!
Brought to You by Depends (Kill Bill, Vol 1)
On this episode of Shweet!, Brooklyn based comic Morgan Root watches Quentin Tarantino's martial arts epic Kill Bill, Vol 1 for the first time with Jeena and Tarantino fan and woke bae, Alex Fossella. What follows is a wide ranging discussion on Tarantino's relationship with Harvey Weinstein, getting revenge on behalf of other people and male-lensed feminism. It's a meaty, thoughtful episode that still manages to take time to riff about Gillian Anderson's nipples and Depends adult undergarments, so there really is something for everyone on this very special episode. Listen now!
Hats! (Red Dead Redemption 2)
Shweet! finally enters the bro-y world of video games! NYC comedian and video game noob Anya Volz enters the immersive world of Red Dead Redemption 2, guided on her quest by fellow comic and gamer Mike Recine. Journey back to the old west where you had a lot more wardrobe options than you'd expect! Jeena confesses to being a clueless old that understands neither the appeal of video games that force you to be ethical farmers or watching other people play games on the internet. Put on your finest hat, punch some cattle and then ride into the complex morality play of modern video gaming on this week's Shweet!
Tammy Lived a Life of Quiet Desperation (Hooter...
Happy Pride everybody! In honor of the queerest month of the year, this supersize episode of Shweet! features a gay brunch at Hooters, starring unimpressed first timer comedian Margo Reiss and two apologists, comedians Chris Moore and Rosa Escandon! It's hot wings at the gayest, campiest restaurant in all the land: Hooters! Jeena and her merry band of queers comics throw shade at the wings, the uniforms, the Hooters rulebook but have nothing but nice things to say about the bathrooms! YASSSS HENNY!
I Should Try to be the Jazz Person (Nightmare o...
Last week's guests Katharyn Henson and Melissa Diaz are back and switching roles! This time we talk about Freddy Krueger and all things teen horror with as Katharyn has never seen A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and Melissa is a big fan who can't wait to talk about Freddy. That is until Jeena derails her own show by talking about her lost ability to lucid dream herself into literally flying around and having mundane sex. We won't learn much about the movie or the men who watched it, but you will learn more than you ever cared to learn about your host on this week's episode of Shweet!
Sunday Albino C*ck (Neutral Milk Hotel vs Laury...
On this special episode, Jeena and her guests explore musical geniuses that put out one good album and then left the scene. Comic Melissa Diaz has never heard any of the indie music bro classic "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" by Neutral Milk Hotel and fellow comic Katharyn Henson has never heard the entirety of Lauryn Hill's "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" so they swap favorites and talk it out. Two artists released classic albums in 1998 and quit, but have very different reputations now. Can female artists gain mystique by walking away from their art like male artists? That's the discussion on this episode of Shweet!
Life is Prison (The Entourage Movie)
Hug it out with Jeena and funny lady Carolyn Bergier as they take a deep dive into 2015' Entourage movie. Comic and unabashed Entourage fan Eitan Levine drops by to defend the seemingly indefensible!

OHH YEAH!
He Was Talking with His Whole Face (Varsity Blues)
Jeena and More Banana founder Cait Moldenhauer join forces to initiate comedian Nadia Quinn into the manly football film world of the 1999 hunkfest Varsity Blues. Cait and Nadia become real life versions of two of the women in this movie while Jeena ranks the hotness of James Van Der Beek and all of the actors playing high school boys. It's not creepy if they are actually 31 years old! It's Friday Night Lights for Dummies on this episode of Shweet! Now get out there and play like gods!
"Oh Cubes! Cubes in Cubes! A Cube Made Out of C...
You know what the problem with Hollywood is? They make shit. Unbelievable, unremarkable shit. And Jeena brings comedian Chloe Koser into a world of Hollywood shit with her first viewing of the 2001 John Travolta/Hugh Jackman action hack-a-thon "Swordfish." NYC comedy mainstay Gianmarco Soresi drops by to explain how this movie provided his sexual awakening while Jeena can't seem to get over some wildly inflated compounded interest calculations. It's 50,000 watts of bro culture on this episode of Shweet!
"Please Go Out With Me, D'Angelo Russell" (Bask...
This week Shweet! puts it all on the court as Jeena explores the world of professional basketball with comedians Jax Dell'Osso, who has never seen an NBA game live, and Veronica Garza, who is a ball player at heart above all things.

Jax and Jeena have provide thorough ratings of all the man butt on the court, while Veronica provides an in-depth treatise on the theory and practice of basketball from all possible angles.

My Penis is My Favorite Thing - Mortal Kombat 1995
Jeena takes a journey into the tournament of Mortal Kombat, the 1995 film adaptation of the popular video game. NYC comedian Sarah Hartshorne watches the movie for the first time while fellow NYC comedian Sarah Kennedy acts as the enthusiastic tour guide to the mysterious Outworld, a land where a fighting competition somehow determines the fate of the universe, a woman forcibly gets a bad blowout and a French guy becomes an Asian thunder god. It's non-toxic masculinity at its best, so GET OVER HERE!
Not as Profound as a Dog Fart - Insane Clown Po...

Neither of Them Knows How to do Stuff - The Pro...
The discussion turns to the problematic 1998 action movie “The Professional”, featuring a way too young Natalie Portman killing people in her underwear.
