Episodes 1-10


Confused by what you hear on our show? You’re not the only one. Or maybe you’re too lazy to click play on an episode but want to seem cool in front of a group of people who do listen to the podcast (and believe me, these are people you definitely want to impress). Well either way, the Insane Ramblings glossary can help you out!

Think of our glossary of an Insane Ramblings specific Urban Dictionary, but with less use of phrases like ‘dawg’ and ‘sargasm’, and more uses of phrases like ‘awesome envy’ and ‘snorgasm’*.

It’s probably also worth pointing out that Vicki stopped updating this list years ago. If you’re confused by anything we said that didn’t make the glossary, feel free to hound her on social media for the definition.


*Now featuring 100% less ‘snorgasm’.
