“Indian Matchmaking”: Why We Have a Love/Hate Relationship With The Show | TIS Ep. 32

“Indian Matchmaking”: Why We Have a Love/Hate Relationship With The Show | TIS Ep. 32

Episode Summary:

**Spoiler alert** Details of the Netflix series Indian Matchmaking are discussed in this episode.

Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is a few days away and the global marketing machine is in full swing. Retailers and advertisers are spending billions trying to convince people that all they need for an epic romance are some flowers, chocolates, and diamonds. And all that is nice, but…then there’s reality. And reality in this case takes the form of the semi-controversial Netflix series Indian Matchmaking. It turns the much hyped Hollywood “meet cute” on its head in favor of discussions about arranged marriage, “biodata”, fair skin, family compatibility, and appropriate height (yes; somehow that’s a thing). Join Sharon and Lisa as they react to episode 1 of the series.

Is Anybody Making New Year’s Resolutions This Year? | TIS Ep. 31

Episode Summary:

Given what 2020 was, and how 2021 has already begun, are New Year’s Resolutions still a thing? Is it hubris to even think that way?

In their first episode of the year Sharon and Lisa discuss their…let’s call them “hopes”…for what they would like to accomplish in 2021.

Also: since life has been coming at them fast, the sisters are giving themselves some grace and reducing the episode frequency. From here on out, there’ll be a new episode every other week, and TIS Off-Topic episodes when there’s something really hot to discuss. (Case in point, check out our Off-Topic episode about the recent attempted coup in the U.S.)

Thanks for tuning in, and welcome to the official start of Season 3!

COVID Karen, Caribbean Version: The Case of Skylar Mack | TISOT Ep. 5

COVID Karen, Caribbean Version: The Case of Skylar Mack | TISOT Ep. 5


2021 is barely a few days old, and it’s already setting up to be “2020, The Sequel: More Virus, Less Logic.”

And so, we’re starting Season 3 with an Off-Topic episode to discuss Skylar Mack, one of the anti-masking quarantine breakers who ran afoul of the Cayman Islands authorities over the holiday season.

In true COVID Karen style, Ms. Mack broke a 14-day quarantine period a mere 2 days into it. However, unlike many tourists who have acted similarly, she was made to pay the price.

The sisters discuss the case, the protocols, the consequences of breaking quarantine, and why we all need to continue to wear our masks.
