Fast forward a decade later, Bethan is procrastinating from her PhD and Greer is trying to stop social media making her feel depressed so they decided to keep in touch by starting a podcast.

Weird Weekends Watch-Along

As the Covid 19 Lockdown continues to ruin everybody’s plans for 2020, Bethan has started a complicated relationship with a Brownie delivery company and Greer has taken to blocking out the news by listening to Louis Theroux’s audiobook on repeat. To keep her away from Harry Potter “I promise it’s not sexual“ fan-fiction, Bethan suggested that the next few episodes of Anecdotally be a look back at Louis Theroux’s first ever documentary series from 1998, Weird Weekends in which he visits communities in America that hold strong beliefs and gets stuck in with their lifestyle.

This week Greer and Bethan take a look back at Louis Theroux’s experiences with UFOs. He visits Thor Templar the self-proclaimed ‘Lord Commander of The Earth Protectorate’, communicates with an Extra-Terrestrial for $50 and goes on a tour with Renee, the ‘Wet Wipe’, to Area 51 (not 41.) Greer manages to say the words, ‘scrotum’, ‘testes’, ‘penis’ and ‘rectum’ more times than she ever has before and Bethan looks up Area 51 hotels on Trip Advisor. They also discuss whether you bought into the early 00s scandal of breeding your gooey aliens by putting them back to back.

In this week's Anecdotally podcast, Greer and Bethan get into discussing the porn industry thanks to episode three of Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends; a topic they never thought that they would be discussing together especially as their friendship began in a Latin class at an all girls Grammar school. Nevertheless, Bethan uses her famed research skills to discuss how much of what we see in porn translates into the real sex lives of young adults today and how porn trends that were seen as pushing the boundaries in the late 90s are actually Vanilla by today's standards.

In this week's episode of the Anecdotally podcast, Greer and Bethan take a look at the world of Right-Wing Patriots and Survivalists who are concerned about 'The New World Order' a conspiracy theory focusing on the rise of a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda to eventually rule the world. After re-watching Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends Season 1 Episode 4 Survivalists, Bethan takes the time to educate us on the tourist hotspots of Idaho including the Museum of Clean and Greer discusses why she can never step foot in a Wetherspoons.
