Accepted. I Went To College To Be Emily Dechanel And All I Got Were Seven Worthless Diplomas.
What is a girl to do when she finds herself as not a white man? Go to college and get some worthless degrees so we can make less money! (maybe)Emily and Jordyn are joined by the dazzling Cassie and their collective seven collegiate degrees in part one of the three part dive into their college experiences. (Note that their degrees have nothing better to do than sit around and chew the fat.)Today they talk deciding to go to college, selecting their majors, and if they ever thought about throwing in the towel - figuratively, they did not make enough money to dispose of any linens...At 03:15, in the first round of Millennial or Gen Z, 50% of which generation plans to move back home after college?At 09:17 they talk about the most adult thing they've done this week, featuring a passive aggressive opinion on gender roles from the Department of State. They divulge how they chose their college majors at 13:48, ranging from Emily Dechanel, to stubborn type A biases, to "I couldn't see myself doing anything else EVER". The three earn seats on the struggle bus through betrayal from a store where you would least expect it, YouTube banner blunders, and the day the podcast (almost) never was. Things take a turn for the better at 31:00 with free mom and dad hugs, and the tea is spilled at 32:41 with how thousands of NYC subway cars ended up at the bottom of the ocean. And if that's not enough to peak your interest wait until you get to 38:00 when they tell you how to save 1500 plastic bags a year and weeks of spoiled produce per grocery run for under $20.Follow Emily and Jordyn on Instagram and Facebook @fifweknowpodcast, check out their website at www.fifweknow.com, and as always, RATE REVIEW AND SUBSCRIBE! And don't forget what your mom always said, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."Take care of yourselves, take care of each other, and take care of the earth. Until next time, cheers!

Sustainability Smackdown #2 - Plastic Straws. The Bare F-ing Minimum.
We're all adults here, right? So we are all intimately familiar with what the bare minimum looks like.When you were in high school, it looked like hitting that minimum word count right on the money.When you're texting, it looks a lot like the letter "k" (we're looking at you, Chad). When you're picking out clothing for work, it looks like grabbing the only shirt that doesn't need ironing. With sustainability, it looks like dipping half of your pinky toenail in the water and NOT USING PLASTIC STRAWS."But, guys, giving up plastic straws isn't going to save the planet or the turtles."Correct. But like our commitment-phobic friend Chad, y'all aren't ready to jump into the big leagues right now. So this is your first baby step, the equivalent of texting the word "here" or honking your horn instead of walking up to ring the doorbell. Also - it's about the easiest thing to give up in sustainable living.The best part? ABSTINENCE ISN'T THE ONLY ANSWER! (simmer down, Chad).There are reusable metal straws, paper straws, even Starbucks is selling reusable straws - and their reusable cups are pretty cute. Let's learn you some straw knowledge. Fun fact - it started about 5000 years ago with beer!Milkshakes, hospitals, metal screws (oh my!), dental floss, patents (intellectual property is sexy), turtles, and more.Join us. We promise you it is easier than paying your taxes, or having to call to make your own doctor's appointment, trust us.

Self-Worth. You Are Enough And Other Throat Punches To The Feels
We're all walking around broken and taped back together. Get ready for a throat punch to the feels. We take on our number one most requested topic, and it's a BIG one.Somewhere between faking it until you make it and inner peace is learning how to love yourself. Emily and Jordyn are joined by the lovely Erica this week as they all dig deep into an entire episode of struggle bus : learning that you are already enough. Along the way they discuss screening your calls as an adult, why the mermaids won't let you into heaven, and life after layoffs. Jordyn and Emily get a surprise from their neighbor in the community section, and Jordyn hits us with just how long different plastic takes to degrade and how many hundreds of years past the apocalypse our grocery bags will survive.This one is deep, raw, and brutally honest. Be kind to each other, be kind to the earth, and be kind to yourself. You are more beautiful than Cinderella, you smell like pine needles, and you have a face like sunshine.

Passion. When I Grew Up I Wanted To Be A Fire Truck & Other Crushed Dreams
Stop believing the myth that everyone else has it figured out. On this week's show, Emily and Jordyn are joined by very special guest Nick R, wannabe fire truck turned medic, turned linguist, turned "guy who makes great tacos". They discuss their winding paths to adulthood, complete with abandoned careers and recurring fears of everyone finding out that they are a fraud. From childhood dreams to the consistently shrinking stigma of being a job hopper, to taking leaps of faith and the now ubiquitous side-hustle, the trio talks about what it's really like "when you grow up". Finally, Jordyn hits us with some sustainability facts and challenges. Hold on to your tampons (or better yet, stop buying them), we're talking Diva cups! How many pounds of tampon waste does one woman generate in her lifetime? Listen to find out! (Hint: it is 100% more than any male would like to think about)

Friends. No One Talks About Jesus' Miracle Of Having 12 Close Friends In His 30s
Are we like, friends now? There is no smooth way to ask someone out as a friend. Pour a glass of wine and break out the friendship bracelets.

Emily shares about Loyal Coffee's "disloyalty" program and Jordyn drops some eco-knowledge about how to clean those chompers without clogging up our oceans.

Burnout. Work Will Be There Tomorrow & Other Things You Need To Hear Before It's Too Late.
Why sleep, eat, or shower when there are robots waiting to take your job RIGHT NOW! Kidding. But seriously, when did we forget how to chill out?Millennials are the most likely to forfeit vacation time and the most likely to leave the trunk of their car uncleaned for three years (not naming names...)This week Emily and Jorydn tackle burnout and discuss how to combat the constant stress monkey on your back. Emily visits a brewery that supports local non-profits by donating 100% of community ale profits while Jorydn invites you on our crusade to eliminate plastic waste. I guess she assumes we all want to live on earth a few more years?
