Welcome to Pretty Basic, a weekly podcast hosted by two, twenty-something year old best friends and digital creators, Alisha Marie & Remi Cruz. Each week they welcome listeners into their daily life for a special helping of the tea you're not getting from their wildly popular YouTube channels. From fun lighthearted conversations about dating to sharing their tips on how to feel more confident - each week you'll be left wanting more "content, baby, content." New episodes every Wednesday!

81 Episodes
Remi opens up about her experience with sexual assault, and the girls discuss possible coping mechanisms and ways to support others who have gone through similar experiences. Then, a light Q&A session: embarrassing moments, awkward first kisses, breakups, and a lot of drama on YouTube.  Call 800.656.HOPE (4673) to be connected with a trained staff member from a sexual assault service provider in your area.
The girls get into a deep conversation about all things relationships. From acquaintances and co-workers, to best friends, exes, and friend’s boyfriends. Making the most out of all relationships, do’s and don’ts, where and how to draw boundaries, and knowing when it’s time to cut things off completely.
Quarantine has been rough for all of us but that doesn’t mean the girls haven’t been finding a lot of things they love! From skin care tips and athleisure outfits, to new food concoctions and healthy(?) cocktails, Remi and Alisha are listing off ALL of their favorite things they’ve been discovering/using/doing over the past few months.
Claudia Sulewski is an OG Youtuber and good friend of Remi and Alisha. She opens up on everything from transitioning into acting, to buying a house with her boyfriend Finneas, and so much more. Plus, the girls discuss how the world of content and YouTube have change and how it will all continue to evolve.
A special episode this week as the girls discuss everything around the Black Lives Matter movement, what they’ve learned, and what we can all do to make a positive change! All ad revenue proceeds from this episode will be donated in support of BLM. Links to get involved, donate, and learn more:
Big week for drama! The girls dive into all the tea around Call Her Daddy, how business and money can really stake a divide in relationships, and talk about how much really goes on behind the scenes of a podcast. Plus, drama with Lana Del Rey, Hillary Duff, Khloe Kardashian, and is it time to cancel cancel culture? Remi and her boyfriend get into their biggest fight ever… and HOW MUCH did she pay for a psychic reading!?!
Alisha opens up in a heart-to-heart episode about some of the struggles she’s been going through during quarantine, and why sometimes it’s not all glitz and glam in the life of “Alisha Marie”. Anxiety, depression, negative thoughts, and all the ways it can really impact your life – she’s felt it, and shares her experiences in overcoming it. If you’ve felt any of this, especially over the last few months, you’re not alone!
The girls are back together and catching up over some Pretty Basic Pop Culture: Elon Musk and Grimes’ bizarre baby name, and drama involving Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo! Plus, they go into the full backstory of how they became friends (hint: plenty of Tito’s was involved) and dive into some ridiculous moments in an epic night in Vegas.
Remi opens up about her recent feelings of stress and anxiety since quarantine started and talks through the ways she's been able to manage and overcome them. Plus, a hilarious story about trying to get over a f***boi, Zayn and Gigi are having a baby sending all the One Direction stans into a frenzy, and Remi answers a bunch of questions on fitness, friendships, relationships, and a lot more. What's it like living with your boyfriend during a quarantine, and the real story behind what she thought of Cal when they first matched!
The girls are really missing each other and get into a game of Never Have I Ever (Quarantine Edition) to find out what they’ve really been up to. Then, a new game of Pretty Pop Culture diving into stories like David Dobrik’s latest vlog and Travis Scott’s Fortnite concert. Plus, with so many of you asking about starting a business during quarantine, the girls dish out their tips and advice to get you off the ground!
It’s been a minute so the girls are doing a fun Q&A answering all of your questions. Topics like public relationships, manifesting dreams and goals, bonding moments with your best friend, weird music we all secretly listen to (everyone has their guilty pleasure), how they’re staying healthy and snacking during quarantine, and many more!
As quarantine continues Alisha has turned into an accidental chef and Remi’s boyfriend (like most guys) can’t understand why she’s crying. The girls go through the ways our habits may change after this, and how some things they thought were necessities maybe aren’t? Plus, Alisha’s hilarious story of a guy she made out with one night and the after effects. And, she shoots her shot with some hot athletes and celebs and one responded in her DMs???
Dating during a quarantine isn't exactly easy but that's why we have quaranflings! The girls dive into everything about having a fling right now, and the struggles of using dating apps vs. meeting in real life, especially in LA. Why does it always seem like guys will hit you up again when you start seeing someone? Speaking of, Bumble Boy makes his way back onto the show, and Remi gives the full story on their relationship. Plus, Alisha does some crafts at home which ends up turning into a hilarious prank on a roommate.
The girls go deep on dealing with all kinds of breakups, how celebrities deal with their public relationships, and quarantine has gotten Remi to discover she's really into wine. In celebrity news, they spill all the tea on the Kimye and T.Swift drama, and Chrissy Teigen and Chris Klemens team up to make content that is restoring all our sanity. Plus, shows you need to be watching, and Alisha's Salsa Fiasco of Quarantine 2020.
Being quarantined at home can really be challenging, it’s important we take care of ourselves now more than ever! The girls discuss how they’re dealing with it, give tips on being how to remain productive, and talk through how we can all stay positive during this whole situation. Plus, Remi officially moves into her new home while Alisha has turned hers into a sorority house!
Remi and her boyfriend Cal go through the dating question gauntlet! Along with TK, they discuss the excitement (and also the growing pains) of going through the early stages of a relationship, getting over differences and dealing with fights, and what they’ve learned from each other. Plus, white lies they’ve told, each other’s pet peeves, and Cal dishes on what it’s really like to date Remi.
This week, Alisha and Remi get into the hardships you run into in your 20’s. They cover issues like the stresses of moving, the daunting task of having to find your own health insurance and doctors, having to pay bills, relationship issues, and so much more.
On this week’s episode, Alisha and Remi share a couple of their unpopular opinions, Alisha talks about a pregnancy dream that had her shook, Remi fills us in about her house hunt, plus the girls FINALLY reveal what brought them on that famous New Zealand trip! All that and more!
Remi is back! The girls cover Remi’s trip to Tulum, Alisha’s new found TikTok obsession, how they spent their Valentine’s Days, their recent Sunday fun-day, and more!
With Remi out of town for the week, Alisha is joined in studio by the one and only Taylor King! TK interviews Alisha, and they talk about how they came to work together, the ins and outs of the YouTube business, which celebrities and influencers have peaked, and more.
