Years, months, weeks, days - humans have been measuring time in this way since about 300BC. And their organisation of time wasn’t random; it was based on the cyclical nature of… nature. Your birthday marks another year passed, so this week on the podcast, we’re going to get to know a year really well.
It's finally time to talk about everyone's favourite poppable party essential - BALLOONS! Float away on a journey through balloon history, federal helium reserves and Jo's persistent case of pharyngitis.
Birthdays at work. Every workplace does them differently - some do monthly group birthdays, others encourage employees to bring in three cheesecakes on their birthdays and other companies give employees a day off on their birthday. Join robustly healthy Jerry and pharyngitis-ridden Jo for a fun chat about celebrating your birthday on the clock.
From grand gestures to society’s birthday sexism issues and right through to the five love languages, Episode 17 of Happy Birthday Podcast is all about the good, the bad and the Kanye of how people celebrate birthdays with their partner.
This episode was meant to be about the birthday industry but Jo fell into a clown-hole and Jeremy went on a cake rampage, so it's a true variety show, complete with all kinds of nonsense. But as always, it's very fun to listen to and you'll learn some things!
A special release of Happy Birthday Podcast to commemorate the birthday of Jo's homeland! Join J and J for a star-spangled episode that touches on American history, 4th of July traditions and, of course, birthday parties in graveyards.
The day after your birthday. If you've put a lot of effort into planning your party or there was a lot of emotional energy in the lead-up to the big day, the come-down can be brutal. Join Jo and Jeremy for a talk about emotional hangovers and George Clooney.
First of all, how good are presents?! It feels great when someone puts time into picking something out or planning a fun experience for you. In this episode, Jo and Jeremy look at the idea of karma, the insanely fascinating psychology of wrapping paper and the duo even dips their toes into the topic of Kanye West, gifting extraordinaire. Give yourself the gift of a good listen and tune in!
