Why we accidently went on a month long hiatus! 
October 04, 2021
Laughing Fest
Olivia and E are back at college! This means they are live and in person making recordings a whole lot more fun! This episode literally has anything and everything that you could ever want: D&D talk, Olivia's Covid/quarantine experience, special guest stars, and a test that tells us what type of party goers we are! Like seriously... what else could you want? Also, this episode has the most laughs out of any episode we've done yet! Special thanks to Olivia's brother and his interesting texting skills for their contributions to this episode. And don't forget - we leave no man (or tumbleweed) behind.

Episode 21: A Lukewarm Mess
From back to school shopping to booty-licious jean shorts and Nascar crop tops this episode is a lukewarm mess. Despite that fact, E and Olivia managed to have a short (yet meaningful) discussion on how to move on from people and things that aren't good for you. Like, seriously, please understand that it is okay to move on from something if it's no longer good for you! You matter and so does your mental health and well being! Stepping away from that we go into nonsense rambling about random stuff before finding our way to Sonic fanfictions and book synopsis read throughs.

Episode 20: Shopping Addiction
In this episode Olivia discusses her shopping addiction, her car troubles, and we even get a sneak peak into the wonderful world that is the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). A rant that reminds everyone to be kind to employees somehow leads into a discussion of Jo Jo Rabbit which neither Olivia or E has seen, but would really like to. Despite this episode having a less than ideal Amazon review product and getting ended early because of our technology curse, we still urge everyone to follow our socials and send us your voice messages!

Episode 19: Squeaky Cheese
We begin today's episode with some fun facts before going into a NOT SPONSORED discussion of a local grocery/deli/restaurant/coffee shop combo where E and Olivia discover the wonders of squeaky cheese! One awkward segway later takes us to Olivia's ice cream shop drama and E’s broken freezer woes. We even hear some ice cream trivia that proves Olivia has been scooping ice cream for 3 years too many! Special shoutout to emergency toast for their contributions to this episode!

Scheduling Conflict
Scheduling conflicts are no fun, scheduling conflicts suck for everyone, but that's okay I tell you true cause our expectations are low just for you!
July 02, 2021
Episode 18: Yeah, Yeah, Uh-Huh
We begin this episode with a beautiful rendition of "The Sound of Silence" in honor of the multiple technical difficulties that we, your lovely hosts, had to endure. Beyond this we offer our usual train of thought rambles which include Olivia's first anime and E’s corset arriving in the mail! And we can't forget our inspirational moments and college talk that lead us to a squirrel puppet! Yeah... Yeah... Uh-Huh...
June 25, 2021
Episode 17: E’s Entertainment
In this Episode, E talks about all the media she consumes for probably way too long!
June 18, 2021
Episode 16: Shout Out To Linda
From Olivia's wild dreams to overfilled doughnuts that deserve a shoutout to Linda, this episode has it all! Our always popular Amazon review segment is back with a product more bitter than Olivia's tears! We even discuss starting our very own advice segment, so send us your questions and stories to get our exceptional advice! Also please give exo_retro and SunKingReS a follow on Twitch for some content with expectations higher than ours!
June 11, 2021
Episode 15: Deb Deserved Better
We're baaaack! In this episode we discuss what we've been up to during our month long hiatus! Topics include: Olivia's candle haul, steampunk, and Napoleon Dynamite. We hope you are just as excited for season two as we are! 
June 04, 2021
Promo Season 2!!!

June 01, 2021

Episode 14: Hot Dog Etiquette
From YouTuber merch to Nicholas Cage on a pillowcase, this episode has all you could ever want! Olivia tells the tale of her most recent dream, we discuss the glory that is 8 pounds of cereal marshmallows, and we even look towards what the future of technology might have in store. And how could we forget the newest superhero: Hu-Man Man! We even discuss the most serious topic we've ever discussed: The Dos and Don'ts of Hot Dog Etiquette.
April 16, 2021
Episode 13: A JoJo Reference
In this episode, E talks about JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and other JoJo references because, let's face facts, everything is a JoJo reference. Our train of thought makes a stop at Olivia's grandma's where we learn about her amazing (yet somewhat questionable) shopping tactics. We even hear the history of E’s almost 700 song playlist! Special thanks to Morton's table salt, time tourists, and dancing cats for their contributions to this week's episode.
April 09, 2021
Episode 12: Don't Drink the Milk
From national parks and super calderas to a dramatic reading of the modern day "Cat in the Hat", this episode has it all with suggestions from you, yes you! Among these topics we give you a small peak into our college life and answer the age old question "What is our favorite candy?". We can't forget about Edgar Allen Poe's newest release, "Tuscan Milk and the Kitten". Special shout out to Pasta Grannies in all their wholesomeness (seriously, you should give these sweet old gals a follow on Instagram). PS - Don't drink the milk.

Episode 11: Motivational Monday, But on a Friday
With midterm/finals week in full swing this episode deviates a little from our typical content. Half of Low Expectations was drowning in assignments while the other half had a relatively easy week. With that said, Olivia is here to provide some of the best motivation you'll get all week! Don't forget to remember, just because our expectations are low doesn't mean our dreams have to be too.

Episode 10: Thanks Kylie!
In this episode we give a huge thank you to one of our listeners, Kylie! Kylie sent us in our very first voice message which, as can be expected, sent us on a wild adventure. From paranormal activity to what our favorite foods are this episode has it all! Special thanks to the asthmatic senior citizen and Baby Mop for their contributions to this episode.

Rabbit Holes the Podcast! (150 Listens Special)
***This episode is explicit and discusses heavier topics*** In this episode we welcome our friend Lydia! We discuss soooo many topics including: Anime, the earth being a Lindor Chocolate Truffle, and conspiracies that turned out to be true. We went down so many rabbit holes we just had to make it the name!
March 13, 2021
Episode 9: Identity Crisis
We promise you we are not purely a review podcast! This week was just very slow and we didn't have a lot to say, so we looked at some Amazon reviews. There were some that were a bust and others that were wonderful. Tune in next week where we hope to have more to talk about!
March 12, 2021
Episode 8: Huge Ships
In this episode Olivia rants about a Bingo mishap while E discusses classroom woes. We bring you the thought provoking "To Party or Not to Party: A Wholesome Discussion About Finding Your Place in College". No episode would be complete without an Amazon review or two so we bring you the joys of the fiendish Swiss army knife, tiny hands, and, of course, huge ships. We of course do not think they should be avoided.
March 05, 2021
Episode 7: Captain Kurt
In this episode we read not one, not two, but three whole review sections on Amazon. We also touch on Daft Punk’s breakup, a puppy emergency, and toxic aspects of the internet. This episode is a little heavier than previous ones. Special thanks to "Life Size for Kids", "Captain Kurt", and "N-n-n-no" for your contributions to this episode.
February 26, 2021
Episode 6: Stacy's Mom Don't Copyright Strike Us
In this episode we unapologetically sing the chorus to Stacy’s Mom. A lot. We also return to Amazon to read reviews of Temptations cat treats and learn about garlic butter! Sincere apologizes to Weird Al for thinking Eiffel 65’s song, Blue (Da Ba Dee), was actually a parody by him. As you can see this episode is full of apologies...

Oh Man! Episode 1: Psych Class Clones
This is our first minisode!! We have pretty much the same tangents we always do but in a shorter amount of time! Today's minisode blesses you with the sci fi adventure that is psychology class clones, a special word from Olivia's cat, and the chance to win Low Expectations merch!! (Obviously merch isn't out yet and won't be for months, but what else did you expect from us low expectation filled gals??)
February 17, 2021
Episode 5: "Last Week"
In this episode we talk entirely too much about last week. It's almost like we don't do anything on the weekends! In this episode we discuss an interesting take on D&D, the glory that is sugar free gummy bears, and serval other tangents. We also Google the age old question, "Why has Olivia been yawning?" In sum, people on the internet make funny content.
February 12, 2021
Episode 4: Hi, Hey There, Hello!
We promise this episode is not a steaming hot mess. Then again with expectations this low, who knows? What we do know is that our audio is finally at its peak! In this episode we discuss wonderful topics such as our Instagram, our Instagram, our Instagram, and other very important stuff! Look, our semester is starting so... give us a break. We thought you had LOW expectations not high ones.... All sarcasm aside, in this episode we talk about small businesses, Etsy, the Amish (again), and the glory that is mac and cheese loaf. Shout out to the live (it was live then) reaction to an email chain! How exciting!
February 05, 2021
Episode 3: A Hot Mess
Look, we’re gonna be honest with you... this episode is a mess. We lost Part 1 and then we lost Part 2. If you came into this episode with high expectations you are listening to the wrong podcast. However, we are still able to bring you an episode where we talk about the Gap (as per usual), the last Blockbuster in America, and many more wonderful things!
January 29, 2021
Episode 2
In episode two we once again provide you with everything you could ever dream of! For this episode we moved to Discord (not sponsored) so now our audio is even better! We are also joined by our unofficial first guest, Craig the discord bot, who loves to make things difficult! In this episode, we talk about coyote hunting, our very very different tastes in music, and even explore the glory that is IKEA! Special thanks to the words “exactly” and “literally” for their contributions to this episode.

Episode 1: Pilot
We hope you believed us when we said we had low expectations. At least we tried.  In this episode, you meet us your lovely hosts! This episode has it all! Garlic butter sauce, Tom Hanks, and even ranch dressing! What more could you want? Honorable mentions from our stream of consciousness ramble go to college, Dungeons and Dragons, and the word exactly.
