Season 2 - Episode 22 - Why Are You Playing 'Back That Ass Up' At This Funeral?
Hey Basics! In this week’s episode things are getting real as we play a few rounds of Truth or Drink by The Cut.

Season 2 - Episode 21 - Brunch Is Like A National Holiday For Me
Hey Basics! In this week’s episode we get a little basic when we recount the tales of a brunch gone wrong (aka 16 hour brunch resulting in voicemails left to Travis that may or may not make sense.) AND we have guests this week so the second half of the episode is a little more Not So Basic Brunchcast. We really appreciate Marcus and George taking the time to come speak with us about some topics that they are not only passionate about but that are important to discuss. We hope you enjoy this week’s blend of Basic and Not So Basic, grab a bottle of champagne, pop the earbuds in because as always we’re a little NSFW/Kids and have a great weekend! Cheers!

Hey Basics! In this week’s episode Travis has a confession… that Amy and Chelsie already knew about. Chelsie has joined Travis and Amy on the dark side, i.e. all the Botox! (Our 30-something faces request it.) And Amy has decided that she will be stalking Travis at his kickball games. And of course there were all the beverages so grab yourself one as well and join us at the table! Thanks for having brunch with us! Cheers! Be sure to Follow wherever you stream your podcasts.

Hey Basics! It's listen, like, and follow time babes! This week’s episode was recorded at the Getaway House in Asheboro and had a little sponsor in the form of Picnic Brunch Canned Cocktails! The “Boxcar Basics” have yoga goals, an inadequate coffee camping situation, and warnings about if the cabin is a rockin' to share this episode. Our constant internal battle of becoming fake members of Gen Z versus embracing all things deemed Cheugy continues. Who even are we? We don't know, but we do know that you should pop some champagne and long weekend brunch with us! Cheers Basics! Be sure to Follow wherever you stream your podcasts.

Season 2 - Episode 18 - Put Your Mouth Hole Away
Hey Basics! In this week’s episode we decide we are basically famous now because we have been nominated for Indy Week’s Best of 2021 in the Triangle. You can vote at: vote.indyweek.com/out-and-about/best-local-podcast. This week Amy learned how old she really is this week i.e. she thought 21 year olds having wine were a 12 year old birthday party, Chelsie is having adult naked tantrums that are pandemic-approved, and Travis is figuring out if the new mask guidance means orgies are now a thing. Sooo we are all doing super well. We do have a nice serious Basic’s chat about inclusivity, we believe in balance; mimosas with heart. Thanks for having brunch with us! Cheers!

Season 2 - Episode 17 - Two Days And It's A Lifestyle
Hey Basics! So about last Friday Night… Yep, that’s right! In this week’s episode we decided to ditch the Brunch and do a Friday Night episode and things got spicy. Something about banging or Bang energy drinks and 20 something “boys” watching us. The city wrecked Travis’s car, Amy has started a new lifestyle and someone send help because Chelsie is officially lost in a TikTok rabbit hole – or manhole (you’ll have to listen to the episode to get that one.)

Season 2 - Episode 12 - It's Better If You Drink It
Hey Basics! In this week's episode it's a table for two with Amy and Travis but Chelsie is not off the hook so of course she is "forced" to call in. And apparently she staying at the AirBNB of a serial kidnapper? We're not sure what is happening there. Travis has had 4 spiked coffees in a few hours so he feels very passionate about a lot of things and Amy advocates for drink SPF.

Hey Basics! Grab your mimosas because our first Basics in the wild podcast is here!We brunched and recorded at The Honeysuckle at Lakewood, so it is probably essential that you demand someone in your household bring you every podcast-listening mimosa today so you have the same at-brunch energy we had. Totally necessary! When you join our table you will hear about elder millennial accidental pregaming, swinging, cupping, TikTok fame, and toilet paper demands. Yep, that is the journey we will go on in our hour of spiked coffee fueled chat. Cheers! Be sure to Follow wherever you stream your podcasts.

Hey Basics! In this week’s episode we may have had one too many seltzers (read: someone admits to seven) so somewhere in there we forgot we had microphones but it makes for a good time.

Season 2 - Episode 8 - When I Say Sip, You Break A Hip
Hi Basics! In this week’s episode we start planning for the day we have a glorious exit from quarantine and that includes going to the clubs. We haven’t been to a club in a long time even pre-pandemic so we assume they are full of man snacks, 1/2 price apps and automatic VIP status, right? And then we discuss what all the acid washed, young trends and realize throughout the episode we are no longer young if our Friday nights consist of wallpapering a dining room. So if you’re feeling “not 22” come be “young” with us! Be sure to Follow or Subscribe wherever you stream your podcasts.

Season 2 - Episode 7 - This Is Porn, Get Your Equipment
Hey Basics! This week's episode is a table for two and as you can tell from the title, Amy was not there to regulate. Zero rules led to Travis explaining the maybe not HR approved reason why he was very late to the recording and to Chelsie sharing her booty loading goals and her definitely not HR approved return to work plans. Amy has decided she will be HR moving forward. Cheers Basics! Be sure to Follow or Subscribe wherever you stream your podcasts.

Season 2 - Episode 6 - I Have A Shank In My Wheelchair
Hey Basics! In this week’s episode the running theme was adulthood. We reflect back on what we thought about adults as children – some of it funny with a splash of serious because we like to keep it balanced, you know. Queue Chelsie to lighten the mood by telling us a story about her blossoming adulthood that ended in a visit from her mother. Then Travis comes for a unneeded age reality check: what exactly is a milk model? A few NDAs, adult Yoohoos, cupholder pillows and plenty of laughs later we may have ended this brunch a little tipsier than it started. Cheers Basics!

Hey Basics! This week Chelsie was out of the office so it was a table for two for Amy and Travis. But that didn't stop us from calling Chelsie and asking for all the details of her little getaway including the question everyone has been dying to know since last week: did the crop get used? We also discuss things like talking to strangers and buying things from strangers, you know, things our parents totally said were safe. Also does anyone know where we can get a vodka sippy cup? We're fine, everything's fine. So grab a mimosa or three and come listen in on our brunch conversation! Cheers! Be sure to Follow or Subscribe wherever you stream your podcasts.

Not So Basic Brunchcast - Episode 1 - Your Life Matters, Love Mom
In the Basic Brunchcast's first Not So Basic Brunchcast we have a guest with us today, Amanda. She and a group of mothers wrote an open letter to their black sons and Amanda is sharing that letter here with us. We discuss the topic of race, interracial relationships, navigating the daily fear surrounding the potential that your partner may not come home and much more. The Basic Brunchcast doesn't just believe in being "not racist". We believe the only way to not BE racist is to be anti-racist. We will continue to speak up and speak out and share, remembering it is not people of color's responsibility to fix racism, it is our responsibility to fix this. We hope that you will listen with an open mind and an open heart. We look forward to bringing more stories to you surrounding many diverse topics. Lastly Basics, as you may know, it is still partial quarantine and while at times we may take some cute photos together we have still been recording outside. As a surprise to no one, 2020 is the year of the largest cicada emergence in 17 years. We removed their singing as much as we could but we apologize in advance for any forest ambiance you may hear in the background as we were among giant oak trees that are apparently the home to many a creature. Thank you for listening and Cheers (Not So) Basics!
