This week a well-deserved shoutout is given to the nursing industry, alongside an exciting announcement of BaKChat’s official Thirst Sponsor, Lonetree Cider!   Krista is glowing from the Vancouver heatwave while Bryan quizzes them on podcast listener stats from around the world, courtesy of blubrry.com.  Things rocket to “It’s in the Stars,” as Krista responds to a listener email,  summoning her sexual-urgency persona to read August’s horoscope for Crazy Cancers everywhere via vice.com.

“Once in a ‘Century Lifetime’ Opportunity?”

In this week’s episode it’s all about enjoying the simple things in life; whether it’s writing in a journal or going phone-free! Then things get a little scarier on BaKChat, as Bryan and Krista recall some of their most memorable Paranormal Experiences. The pair then hop on the horoscope train to show some Leo love via autostraddle.com for an “It’s in the Stars” segment specially read for the first BaKChat listener who chatted back last week!

“Karen’s Been Dead for 20 Years!”

In this week’s episode, Krista’s fake sponsor, Cineplex, almost has her fighting seniors citizens to hear the wisdom of Mr. Rogers in the new biopic ‘Won’t you be my Neighbour?’ Bryan surprises Krista with a REAL sponsor from listener, Andrea, at roxandlaity.com! Things get gnarly with special stories from both halves of BaKchat before they fly into the galaxy for an urgent “It’s in the Stars”  featuring a Sagittarius read from the works of Jake from @jakesastrology!

“Eating a Giant Lizard Kinda Grossed Me Out”

The jetlag is REAL for both halves of BaKChat as the pair return to share their respective trip experiences: Bass Coast & Japan! Krista relives the most magical moment of Bass Coast, (hint: Erica Dee) and Bryan gives the low-down of how Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto surpassed his travel expectations. “It’s in the Stars” takes us back to our favourite astrologer, Corina Dross from Autostraddle.com, and the July horoscope for Libra rings hella real for our favourite Libran, Bryan.

“Don’t Touch Me, I’m Alive”

On this week’s episode BaKChat celebrates the small stuff! A fake sponsor has Bryan THINXing and Krista revealing an intimate secret. Bryan reveals the motives behind his matte-black Jeep and Krista lies to protect her dignity during a massage (though we all know that’s long gone!). A BaKChat listener gets Krista and Bryan to ‘chat back’ about kitty Q’s, meowing all the way to an extra cute and fluffy “It’s in the Stars” dedicated to Cancer season, y’all!

“The Dessert with a Dirty Secret”

On this episode of BaKChat, Krista finds an entrepreneurial solution to Bryan’s sore Spin Class booty. Bryan finds out that Krista’s one true sponsor is actually his home. Krista recalls putting the ‘hooch’ in Moon Hooch on her Hamburg and Prague groupie tour. Bryan blows Krista’s cosmic mind by taking control of the Zodiac wheel on this week’s “It’s in the Stars,” as he navigates the Horoscope Train through the weird and wonderful world of Aquarius.

“Claritin’s Not Gonna Fix That”

After a microphone mishap that left an episode…somewhere in the stars, BaKChat returns to talk Indigenous People’s Day, a potential Canadian 420/Thanksgiving combo & Spring PMS. The Twins at Astrostyle.com provide this week’s “It’s in the Stars,” which points out all of Libra Bryan’s quirky flaws & loveable charm.

“…Sat on her Tuffet (Which was also a Muffet)”

Broadcasting for their first time from Vancouver’s West End, BaKChat debates bougie poutines, including the correct Quebecois pronunciation, and confirms Krista’s gullibility via the Canadian $50 bill. A conversation about cereal takes a turn for GAGA and the episode turns into a full-blown Lady tribute, including a special Aries, “It’s In the Stars.”

“You’ll Never Make It in the Bush”

On this episode of BaKChat Bryan and Krista commiserate over the corporatization of Pride. Bryan revisits fond memories of Toronto’s Metric and Yeah Yeah Yeah’s concerts, and Krista finds out Prozac is not a party drug. Bryan expresses his distaste for camping, but Krista is dead set on winning him over with her pro outdoor tips.

“Burn This Tinderbox to the Ground”

Beginning on a breezy note inspired by Karmic Seafoam air tents (aka Krista’s shirt), BaKChat takes a moment for some rare somber discussion on the dark, but very important, aspects of Bryan and Krista’s ancestry which includes residential schools and a tragic accident. “It’s in the Stars” brings Bryan and Krista closer than ever as they make astrological amends on a miscommunication that they totally blame on the retrograde.

“Pussy Brain Freeze”

Forest fire discussions lead to off-colour Smokey the Bear commentary.  Bryan totes Dole Whip pineapple treats and Krista discovers the dark side of cheese.  On the astrological side we learn how  Krista’s Libra Moon keeps her from becoming a cutthroat psychopath, and that your mouth isn’t the only body orifice that can initiate a brain freeze.

“You Pee in Your Wetsuit?!”

Healthy choices (or lack thereof) on Uber Eats. Finger wiping equates to human napkins.  Bryan takes sailing lessons and capsizes.  Krista discovers the dirty side of wetsuits and reveals some surprising Alberta roots.  Material obsession weirds them both out.  “It’s In the Stars” reveals astrological oddities.

“Underwater Panic!”

Memory foam can get forgetful (and rather filthy).   The ‘Crab Bucket Theory’ is discussed.  Bryan recounts how he nearly drowned on a scuba diving trip in Exmouth, Western Australia.  Krista keeps her Mother’s Day gift under ‘wraps’ and earwig myths are dispelled.  Autostraddle.com provides an “It’s In the Stars” Aquarius review.  Relationships, social standing and filling your own self-voids are highlighted as BaKChat reiterates the importance of making yourself number one.
