We’re proud to present you with episode 101 of the Joy the Baker Podcast!  Let us dazzle your ears with shopping tips, fart stories, tennis players in the finest blazers… and it’s all downhill from there.

We hope your summer is warm and beachy, with a side of awesome!



We’re all up in this Mercury Retrograde.  Are you feeling it?  We need naps and leashes on our electronics.

Will Tracy lose this Fit Bit One? She did buy it during Mercury Retrograde…

Serena Williams is BLAZING it up at Wimbledon!  Amazing!… and weird.



EBATES!!!! Tracy uses it before she makes online purchases. Cash back, baby!  She knows how to SHOP!



Tracy stalked this skirt. Tracy got this skirt. Patience pays off.

Thank you for joining us for another podcast!  We love that you’re here!  Also… if a boy wants to express his love for you… don’t pop his love balloon.  Just hear him out.

K.  Thanks!

    Loved this! Off to stalk Anthropologie in the UK! Jessica

    Also, we had an Uncle that when in a theatre would fart whenever people applauded! He thought it would hide it! Obviously it didn’t!!!

  3. Who on earth complains loudly about someone farting in a bathroom (and then does it again)!? Where does she fart?? No real connection except the bathroom but it reminded me of that David Sedaris story of how he’s in a similar situation (big house dinner) and goes to the bathroom and find a huge turd left there by the person before him and now has to get rid of it so as the person after him not think it was him. You can hear it here http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/60/business-of-death?act=4 (and wish it happens to that girl!)

  4. Dearest Jtb and Shutts,
    Joy- Nothing you can say will ever be “too real.” We love it, keep it coming.
    Tracy- your shopping is truly snazzy. Cash back for shopping? I can get down with that.

    Keep it up ladies, you’re doing great.

    p.s. just finished re-listening to all your old episodes… what now?

  5. Omg, i laughed my head off listening to this podcast another good one ladies!

    Lloyd: What do you think the chances are of a guy like you and a girl like me… ending up together?
    Mary: Well, Lloyd, that’s difficult to say. I mean, we don’t really…
    Lloyd: Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came a long way just to see you, Mary. The least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?
    Mary: Not good.
    Lloyd: You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?
    Mary: I’d say more like one out of a million.
    Lloyd: So you’re telling me there’s a chance… *YEAH!*

    I was physically nodding to the dumb and dumber reference before Joy even said people are nodding. Hilarious ! I also had a friend who told me she bought a bathing suit at the thrift store and I replied “ew gross , that’s not funny!” And it turned out she actually had. Whoops!

  7. Loved this podcast!

    Love my fitbit! Also, wear it in the shower, swimming whatever, its totally resilient! I also did an experiment and wore at a wedding recently…learned that you burn a lot, A LOT of calories dancing!

      In the shower??!!! WHAT. You can do that? Do you have a ONE?

  9. Anyone who is still that hung up on normal bodily functions clearly isn’t old enough to drink margaritas.

    And, ugh, yes the logistics of figuring out the run/walk thing when there are walkers and other runners about can be so awkward! It’s also fun when you’re trying to pass a walker in order have ample space before you need to walk yourself, but they’re walking almost as fast as you’re running so it’s nearly impossible to pass them. Good times 😀

    I loved this episode! Who doesn’t love farts? Joy, sorry those punks were discussing your bodily functions … how rude, as Michelle Tanner would say. Where the hell else are you supposed to toot?!

    Also- I cracked up at your Friday night supermarket voice.

    I’m really considering a fitbit now because I too enjoy data/day-ta… BUT I saw on the website that the fitbit One comes with some sort of “dongle” and I laughed and figured at least Tracy would appreciate this. Also, thumbs up emoji for Dumb & Dumber reference (I *was* nodding).

  12. Tracy,
    I, too, am on my second fitbit (zip). The worst part is that I think the first one is in the house somewhere, because it somehow synced the last bit of data whilst it was missing. And have you checked out bradsdeals.com? I’m totally addicted. They add new deals to the site all day so I’m constantly checking back. They search online for deals on random things you didn’t realize you needed plus special coupon codes for free shipping and such.
    Joy, I so loved your real talk as always.
    Have a fab week!

    Check out Stitch Fix, an online shopping service that is super cool and easy. It would get you some items in your closet before you even need them. Tsh has talked about it on Simple Mom!

  14. This podcast got weird. And I liked it.

    Keep it up, ladies!

  15. Keep on keepin’ it real! Love it. Tracy, check out thred up to sell your old clothes to get credit to buy new ones :)

    Harry: What’s her last name? I’ll look it up. Maybe it’s on the briefcase.
    Lloyd: Oh, yeah! It’s right here – Samsonite! I was way off!

    I want to be your fitbit friend! add me: http://www.fitbit.com/user/25W6KB — btw, if you get the fitbit flex (the newest one– for your wrist), you can wear it in the shower because it’s waterproof.

    You guys. I was running this morning through a bustling Indianapolis downtown, listening to “Clearing the Air,” and I LITERALLY. ALMOST. DIED. When Joy started telling her secret/not-so secret fart in the bathroom story I was laughing so hard I had to stop my run. I may have even peed a little. So I just needed to share and, well, clear the air because when a grown woman pees her pants due to hysterical laughter in public, she has to share with her gal pals. It is the best kind of accidental pee, after all. So thank you for providing me with early morning belly laughs and for being absolutely adorable and hilarious. And keep running ladies! It does get easier, I promise. I started running last spring to alleviate the stress of nursing school, and here I am training for my first fall marathon! (And-may I just say that summer marathon training in the midwest is equivalent to running through an endless series of sweaty armpits- it is that GD humid). I am proud of you for being so awesome and making your health a priority! You’re going to rock the socks off that 5K, I just know it 😉

    • Amanda, can we run in Indianapolis while listening to Joy and Tracy together, please? I’m training for my first marathon this fall, too. I often almost pee my pants while listening to these ladies and running.

  18. Hey! I just started Couch to 5 K last week too! It hasn’t been as tough as I thought either :) I’m with you Tracy – I haven’t started enjoying running yet. I’d like to but we shall see. Hope you can stick through it!

    I hate to be the one to break the news but the Long & Leans are discontinued in GAP stores – some are available online and I’ve seen them in the outlets but as a snooty-toot sales gal told me at Christmas, “That flare-style jean really isn’t cool anymore.” Well, excuuuuuse me! Anyway, if you can find ’em, stock up!

  20. I just totally searched “Marital aids” on amazon at work while listening to the podcast! o.O #awkward…haha
