Rule 043 | Where There's A Goodwill There Is A Way

The Peppers are back! Season 3 is here and we’re diving right into this week’s show without making you listen to the boring highlight reel of our summer. (You're welcome.) 

Lately, Gerard has been commuting to work for a total of four hours (round-trip) on public transportation everyday, and wants to try and find a way to make the most of the time spent on the train. Meanwhile, Jessie has been trying to figure out how to win the fight with our new piece of furniture for the past few months, but she refuses to give up by taking it back to Goodwill. 

It's time to snag your tickets for our next Great Love Getaway! We're heading to Puerto Vallarta from October 12-16, 2016 and we would love to have you join us. Go here to see a video of the last trip, and we can't wait to vacation with our favorite listeners.
 

QUICK BITES:

  • Become a first-tier Great Love Gangster by joining us in Mexico! Rest, Play + Connect on what is guaranteed to be your favorite vacation of the year.

  • Spread the word about Great Love, and help us out by leaving us a review on iTunes! Find out about other ways to support our show right here.

  • Gerard is commuting a total of four hours (round-trip) on public transportation everyday, and wants to try and find a way to make the most of the time spent on the train. (Besides twitter.)

  • Neither of us can figure out when to use the words further or farther. If you can explain it to us, please send help.

  • Jessie hardly ever uses the car that we share, but has created a morning routine in order to reap the benefits of having a pretend commute.

  • Gerard shares how much he’d like to sneak in some productivity on his commute everyday, but then immediately regrets sharing his thoughts when Jessie starts spewing a bunch of well-meaning, yet unsolicited advice.

  • Thinking back to Episode 9, we remember how pulling out your phone at an inopportune time can totally ruin an otherwise delightful moment -- or in this case, a fresh morning.

  • Gerard decides to start riding his bike to and from the train station again, and is hoping the healthy movement ends up being a positive start to his day. Despite the weird things he’s subjected to on the rest of his trip, that morning ritual of zipping down the beach path will hopefully be a positive experiment.

  • Jessie has been trying to figure out how to win the fight with our new piece of furniture for months, to no avail. The armoire is gorgeous, and also ginormous -- but we can’t figure out how to actually get it to fit inside our house.

  • If you are an engineer, contractor, or even a creative ninja genius with an idea for taking apart our window frame... we want to hear from you!

TRIGGER QUESTIONS:

  1. What are your favorite things to listen to during a long commute or car ride? Have you listened to an artist, podcast or audiobook recently that made you glad for the quiet time?

  2. What is the very first thing that you do when you wake up in the morning? 

  3. What is the most beautiful piece of furniture in your entire home? 

Don't forget to leave us a review on iTunes, and send us a tweet if you have something to share while you listen!
