• Remember the Sony Sport Walkman?
• Commit to the middle finger, especially when in the back seat of a station wagon.
• One Smart Fellow by Aunty June. Was there alcohol involved?
• Tracy and I are working on our road trip playlists for you. In the meantime: Joy’s Rainy Drive Spotify Playlist and Joy’s June Tunes.

Love the new look!
Love you guys so much!
I was so happy to see a new episode for my drive home today. You ladies are great, and the site looks fantastic!
Oh, and I’d like two biscuits with jam and a side of bacon at the diner! 😉
The new site looks great! Awesome to have a new podcast to listen to too. I think I went through a similar musical phase to Tracy when I was a teenager, lots of Silverchair (“make room for the preeeey, ’cause I’m coming in, with what I wanna saaaaay” ugh… haha).
Hi Anna! I live in Salt Lake City. And Tracy, that was neat to hear your brother went to school at the U…I went to school there as well and then worked there for another seven years after that. Anna, I’m guessing by “small business school in Salt Lake City” you mean LDS Business College. If that’s it you’re probably living in the downtown area. If you’ve arrived, I hope you’re enjoying it so far! The farmers market in Pioneer Park on Saturday mornings is a lot of fun…there’s a concert series in that same park on Thursday nights as well, but they’re super crowded and can be a little overwhelming. We have some fun restaurants, too, and I love the downtown library. Welcome! Let me know if you have any questions or want to talk.
Oh my gosh guys, I love the new site! Well played!
Also loved the hotdog talk – in Australia we have a similar obsession with the ‘sausage sizzle’, $2 at Bunnings (like Home Depot) to raise money for whatever local soccer team and probably the best meal in town. Super crispy sausages, onions, ‘killer’ (ketchup) and mustard on fresh white bread. Please and thank you.
Lots of love xx
Loved this podcast! I had to cover my mouth (at work) to hide my giggles. And potato salad on a hotdog? Genious! #showmeyourweiners
I love PM Dawn!!
Oh Joy, I hope you’re in Chicago before October 4! If so, get a Chicago dog at Hot Dougs. (They’re closing forever after that…wahhh)
Yes! You must try Chicago dogs!
I’m a new listener and Love the Podcast, you two are hilarious. I also live in Chicago and the opportunities for a good hot dog are endless. When you were talking about the Chicago dog on the show one thing that was left out is that a typical Chicago style hot dog also has sport peppers on it, which I think would be right up your alley. If you are looking for a totally Chicago experience check out The Wiener Circle!
The new Homefries rocks!
Also – Tracy and Joy, you two never fail to crack me up.
You should definitely check out the movie, The Way Way Back. Great soundtrack, I’m obsessed with it this Summer.. And the movie’s got one of those old school station wagons/Sam Rockwell! So it’s pretty win win.
We just watched that movie this weekend! hehehe
I worked on that movie! It was a blast, and I am SO happy to hear of people who liked it! I also love listening to Joy & Tracy … world’s colliding!
I had the same thought! Such a great movie. I love that they called in the way way back because that’s what we called it
Anna! Welcome to Salt Lake! I work downtown and live in Orem. Good luck starting school! Let me know if you want to chat or meet up!
I live near downtown and work in Orem! Want to trade? Are you a Frontrunner commuter?
Wow! The new site looks great! Congrats!
On the topic of hot dogs, I have hosted a few hot dog bar parties. It is a super easy way to “dress up” your dogs! I grill up a bunch of hot dogs, then lay out a the toppings for a few varieties:
Classic: Ketchup, mustard, onions, relish, etc.
Chicago: Green relish, sport peppers, onions, tomato, pickle and celery salt (poppy seed bun!)
Cuban: Ham, swiss cheese, mustard, pickle slices
Banh Mi: Cucumber slices, carrot slivers, sweet Sriracha mayo (Sriracha mixed w/ mayo and sugar), mint leaves
Super easy for a quick party and has always been a great hit! Kids get the classic combos and the adults get a delicious twist. Anyone have any other ideas for a new take?
Love the Banh Mi idea!!
Glad you like the new site! Thanks Matt
Bahn Mi! genius!
Love the idea of setting up meet ups for Joy and Tracy fans! Anyone around in Sydney, Australia?
Is it just me or is the podcast no longer downloadable through this website?
That’s a good point. We weren’t sure if anyone actually downloaded the file from this site (instead of just streaming). We can look into adding that functionality back in. Thanks.
Oh, please do! I don’t use itunes and used to download directly from this site.into my mp3 player and listen to the podcast when I’m cooking/cleaning/out and about. I would be entirely grateful! Thank you!
Ok. We will look into adding that back. Thanks.
Yes, please! I have a droid, and thus do not have itunes, and no wireless in my office. It’s a sad, but true, story.
I think we should have a NOLA meetup for local fans, so we can welcome Joy to the city!
i like the way you think!
Love the new look!!!

PARTY PANTS, YES!
Hot dog with BBQ sauce and cole slaw. Get into it!
OH YES I WILL.
The redesign looks great! Also, I going to dig into those playlists right away. I love listening to you guys so much, thanks for another fun podcast!
Oh! I’m thinking a person could make a hot dog flight! Maybe using cocktail weiners (although, admittedly, these are probably too miniaturised)? Why is there not a hot dog version of sliders?
Love the new site, congratulations!! There used to be an option to download the podcast directly from the site (instead of going into iTunes). Is this still an option?
OMG! Tracy is so freaking good at naming playlists. I immediately felt the need to go back to my Spotify and step my game up.
Welp. Looks like I’ll be having hot dogs for dinner tonight.
Oh boy. Well, first, my favorite diner food is a grilled blueberry muffin with scrambled eggs and a great home fries situation.
Have you guys played around with the nostalgia machine? http://thenostalgiamachine.com/ That would be a way to find a lot of good playlist songs!
Any Maine listeners?
You guys are the best, and the redesign is great!
I made this playlist last winter and it is amazing for driving – all 90’s, all the time
Hi Anna! I live in Salt Lake City, too! It’s a fun city, I hope you like it!
Hey ladies, I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask my question but I’m going to put it here anyway. Whateva. I love your podcast. I probably listen to it more than I listen to music and that’s sayin somethin. You guys feel like friends and save me from feeling lonely some days. I love what you do and I’d like some advice. I’m a sophomore at college in Chicago. I attend a normal university but I have a great passion for cooking and have been thinking about going to culinary school instead. My parents greatly encourage it because they think I have a gift for cooking and baking. However, I also have a passion for writing and I’m wondering if I should stay in college and get a degree so I have a better chance of supporting myself when I graduate? I’ve also heard that culinary school and working in a restaurant is very intense to say the least. What do you think? It’s a really big decision and I’d like some advice from two great cooks such as yourselves. Thanks and I love y’all!
The redesign is AMAZING! Love it top to bottom. You did a super fantastic job.
The new site looks so awesome, congrats! Thank you for all of the work you do to bring this special happy silliness into the world
Also. There can never be enough hot dog talk. My sweetheart and I are planning a fancy-pants black tie wedding in November…with hot dogs and tater tots for dinner. The heart wants what it wants!
Ohmygah. The playlist convo?! Amazing. Can’t wait to hear what you two put together!!
I’m not in salt lake but good luck Anna! I’m in the Chicago suburbs if anyone wants to be my Joy Baker buddy!
