Kelly is a voice actor, comedian, gamer, internet nerd thing doer, and lady of too many podcasts! She is a Twitch affiliate solo streamer and can also be found on Saving Throw Show and HyperRPG doing various nerdy things. She is cohost of Teen Creeps, a podcast in which she and Lindsay Katai discuss the YA pulp fiction of their awkward neon youth; Hellmouthy, a Buffy podcast she co-hosts with Ryan Mogge; and Thank You For Questing, a improv RPG podcast following the adventures of three unlikely characters on their journey to become heroes!
Colin J. Morris is a L.A. based comedian with access to several of his friends' and family members' streaming accounts. He uses these to obsess over television and movies that were released a decade ago. This is an asset that went long overlooked in hollywood until he applied this uniq skill set to commenting on fictional relationships on Same Day Shipping. Colin can be found performing music and improv comedy all over Los Angeles as well on his podcast, Indy Cred, co-hosted by Sexy Tornado's Zane LaRue Dickinson.
Patrick is a comedian and writer in Los Angeles. He is the co-host of the Nintendo Cartridge Society podcast with Mark Mitchell, and one of the gang of obsessive dorks on Same Day Shipping. Patrick is co-founder and editor at the comic book discussion site Retcon Punch, where's he's written way too much about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Ryan Mogge is an improviser and TV-obsessive. Not one to passively enjoy her entertainment, you can find her doing deep dives at @RetconPunch or ranking Buffy's leather coats as host of @Hellmouthy (hint: the red one is the best). Ryan performs regularly at Nerdist School and drinks too much Diet Mountain Dew for a grown up woman.
Awwww, shoot - are the shippers ssssooooorta interested in the Joker trailer? I mean, it's certainly making Colin cry... but then again, so are all movie trailers.

Hold on, are these all just the sweetest ships ever to grace this gross little show?
A 1 in 52 chance that you're going to have to be hunted by your future in-laws... that ain't so bad, right? Then it time for IT part 2, which means the Shippers are taking the long walk to "King Ships" (and only partially understanding the assignment).
To celebrate 100 episodes of Same Day Shipping, the Shippers take another crack at playing an interactive Netflix show together. This time, it's YOU vs. Wild. And you may ask yourself: what could they possibly find to ship in this choose-your-own-adventure-style Bear Grylls survival-reality show? Uh, don't worry - there's a ship in here and it's hot and it's basically guaranteed to not have Station or Mushu or Hagrid in it.
Would you travel by tube if you could? WHAT IF YOU WERE ONE OF THOSE FISH? Look: it's a goofy one. Then, in honor of "Hey, Brenadette, Why Aren't You the Place We Expect You To Be? Shouldn't You Be At Home?", the shippers do Runaway Ships! Which.. is running away romantic? Jeez man, I don't know.
When is it ever appropriate to offer "a reason these two should not be wed?" Like, never... right? Even in the case of A.I doppelgangers? Then, it's on to Scary Ships to Tell in the Dark. It's the spookiest ships this side of a Halloween episode!

What do you do when your S.O. decides you're not even worth breaking up because she's AN ALIEN AND IS GOING BACK TO HER HOME PLANET?

Plus, Crawl is out, which mean we are talking either alligator ships or crocodile ships or who cares what the difference is. Link's Awakening! Scott Pilgrim! Anaconda! Lake Placid! Suicide Squad!

Happy Valentine's Day Shippers! To celebrate, let's take Entertainment Weekly's TRAVESTY of a Rom Com Bracket and re-do it from the ground up. In this first part of an epic two-part saga, your hosts fix the brackets for the 80s and the 90s, get kinda horny about Kevin Costner, and stick it to the baby boomers.
Look, is there an elegant way to turn the Fyre Fest documentaries into a topic for discussion on a Shipping show? No, not really. Does that stop the Shippers? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT DOES NOT.

This week Patrick, Colin and Mogge are talking pop song ships, bad vacays with your BFF and whether it’s okay to ship Sims of your friends. Also, the gang chooses which Tiny Toon to date. The ep ends with a make out sesh that Kelly is sure to be sorry she missed!
If you made a wish for a cute boy to love you and, as a consequence, you become famous, that’s just cool, right? Like, that’s a zero-conflict proposition. (Poor Gordo.)

Ocean’s 11, Ocean’s 12, Ocean’s 13, Ocean’s... 8? It’s time for a soft reboot (which Colin is totally okay with, btw), but this time with all ladies! So we’ve got Lady Ships on the brain. Plus a frank discussion of Beach Blanket Bingo strategy and what to do with do when your SO is deathly allergic to your cat.
Look, we all like bookworms, so sometimes we gotta ship some bookish ships.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer! The Neverending Story! The Unbelievable Gwenpool! Jane Austen’s Persuasion!
What do you do when an ex comes crawling back? Especially when you're pretty sure they're on their same bullshit, just gussied up like it's something new? And who's excited for Solo!?

There’s a new Deadpool movie in theatres, which means the Dips are shipping quippy couples! Gilmore Girls! The Avengers! Sports Night! His Girl Friday!

Hollywood Hot Shot Colin J. Morris couldn’t make it to today’s show, so instead, he calls in with a not-actually-a-question about Back to the Future. Then the Shippers turn to ships featuring the new kid in town. The Simpsons! Just One of the Guys! Footloose!
If we can’t call Zack and Miri Make A Porno, “Make A Porno”, then we can’t call Blockers “Cock Blockers”. Either way, we just gotta talk about parent ships in stories that aren’t necessarily about the parents. Buffy! That 70s Show! Home Alone! Secret Admirer! Plus, would you bone a future version of yourself? And are there any words that are deal breakers? Y’know, totally innocent words like “kiddo”, “daddy”, or “cuck”... wait... cuck?
Daphne and Velma separates a pair from the main team and THEN WHAT HAPPENS? Something we can ship?! What other team could stand to have two member siphoned off to explore their feelings? Then, inspired by the non-problematic parts of Isle of Dogs (if there are non-problematic parts of Isle of Dogs...), your Shippers have dog-owner Jen Kleinrock on to discuss their favorite canine ships. Homeward Bound! 101 Dalmatians! Lady Dynamite! Secret of Evermore! Snow Dogs! Look Who’s Talking Now! Then a listener question prompts some cross-platform ships.
Pacific Rim 2 is out TODAY, so your Shippers have got some big, big, big-big-big (like, skyscraper-sized) ships to discuss. And because they’re all huge dorks, that means Rubeus Hagrid is making two appearances on the show - and one of those ships is the most vile thing any of your hosts have ever dared spoken aloud. Plus: The Iron Giant, The Princess Bride, Clifford the Big Red Dog x Falcor from the Never Ending Story and more Jim Halpert bashing!
What do you do when the charming rakish gentleman you’ve been chatting with ends up being a student of Super Seducer? You buckle in for another two hours of conversation and an clumsy transition into Treasure Hunting Ships! The Wild Thornberrys! Treasure Planet! Uncharted! The Mummy! Plus, what does Patrick mean when he says “kissy time” and is it anything like The Mask-esque calypso dance sequence playing on repeat in Colin’s head?
A Wrinkle in Time looks like it’s gonna be crazy, and it’s got the Shippers thinking about their favorite ships from Young Adult fiction.

Plus, Colin sweats a coupon that’s about to expire and the girls share (perhaps over share) their fic-huntin’ habits. [filter by: EXPLICIT
After Avengers Infinity War’s new release date throws your Shippers for a loop, they set their sights on Infidelity Ships. Turns out, The Office is full of homewrecking relationships and the whole thing needs to be taken down a peg. Plus, Catherine, Grey’s Anatomy and George Costanza + Marisa Tomei!
There’s no parallel-universe-problem that can’t be solved with murder, right? If they can’t solve the Cloverfield Paradox by killing, the Shippers can at least pick their favorite ships out of pop songs! Dashboard Confessional! Weezer! Johnny Cash and June Carter! The Magnetic Fields! Aimee Mann? Jury’s still out on that one. Plus, when a couple doesn’t have a common tongue, they must rely on that which connected them in the first place (probably doin’ it). Bloop!
Your shippers are experts in many things, but what happens when they blindly pick ships from IP they’re completely unfamiliar with? A brand new relationship between captain and first mate? Con man and Iraqi torture expert? A preppy girl and a biker lifestyle? Russian spies that end up mirroring the hollowness of American married life so well they end up resenting each other AND OH GOD LIFE AND LOVE ARE MEANINGLESS.Plus, what to do when your SO ends up being one of those Ugandan Knuckles. (You get out, girl. You get out.)
Special guest, Jen Kleinrock, joins the shippers to help decide: what do you do if your prom date only asked you out to settle a bet? Is it unforgivable, even if you are elected prom queen? With the Winter Games upon us, the gang discuses the Olympic romances of Mario and Sonic, Apollo Ono and Tara Lipinski, and the Greek Gods from which the games originated. Also, Jen and Ryan accidentally guess the plot of The Cutting Edge III: Chasing the Dream and we learn that Colin will do ANYTHING to ride a pegasus.
It’s been about 16 years since the release of A Walk to Remember, what better way to pay our respects than to make fun of the wishes of a dying girl? Then, the Shippers talk ghost ships, and despite their better efforts simply cannot guess what Colin’s ship is. (Beetlejuice felt like it was going to be right!!!)
Look, everyone’s parents would be happy if we just settled down with four nice doctors, but we got the next best thing: a show about Doctor Ships! Plus, a question about kissing booths becomes kind of a judgey conversation about glory holes and we discuss our favorite problematic ships. Tweet your questions either @shippledips or with #shippledips!
You gotta admit: there’s something hot about two people, fighting side by side and respecting each other - HOT. What are our favorite fighter ships?Batman! Boxers! Elves! Dwarves! Space Pirates! Puella Magi Madoka Magica (that’s the show Kelly recommends but can’t remember the name of)!
Can you forgive a murderer? TWIST: what if said murder has amnesia? Does that even matter? Then, we pull ships from our favorite trilogies! We’re talking bromances, personal growth, and a missing toy. Plus, when you don’t like what you’re watching, fix it in headcanon!
The shippers may not know the difference between word play and a pun, but they do know this: don’t buy your SO a surprise house. It ain’t sexy - not even in a dom-Colin kind of way. Then it’s on to Missile / Rocket ships! What’s that mean? Sex in bunkers under false pretenses! Personal responsibility and free will in omniscient relationships! Harboring exactly seven years of resentment! And of course: Top Gun.
What a year it’s been in TV shows and movies and video games and comics and all the other things we love! Most of our favorite ships of the year have actually all been around for 80 years, but like, they feel new, so it counts, right? Plus, we discuss the MVP (Most Valuable Prince) in the garbage Netflix Christmas special The Christmas Prince. NO MORE ENGAGEMENT BITS.
Colin’s Christmas spirit was dead: to begin with. There was no doubt whatever about that. The register of its burial was signed by Ryan Mogge, Patrick Ehlers and Kelly Nugent. Colin J. Morris signed it: and Morris’ name was good upon ‘Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. His Christmas spirit was dead as a doornail. Can Ryan, Patrick and Kelly use all their shipping expertise to complete the ultimate non-canonical ship? Colin / Christmas.
The Last Jedi is in theatres today, and there’s more throbbing, raw sexuality in this cast than in all previous Star Wars movies COMBINED. The Shippers are so turned on by a potential Rey / Kylo Ren ship that we’re going to need to get a cleaning crew in here to hose down the studio. But first, how to deal with a gift-giver who’s only doing performative gift-giving for their own benefit (and, y’know, sorta forcing you to open a dairy farm).
The Shape of Water has the Shippers lusting after some foine fish-man booty, so it’s time to discuss Cross-Species Ships! Turns out: once they can establish consent, your hosts are basically down for whatever. Plus, great advice on how to be supportive to an S.O. who feels like an outsider, and crummy advice on when to declare you’re boyfriend/girlfriend.
With special guest Omar Najam, the gang tries to recover from NaNoWriMo by exploring their favorite writer ships. Plus, and in-depth exploration of what you’d really do if you really caught Mommy kissing the real Santa Claus (really), and maybe the best, most sincere advice ever given on how to avoid holding a grudge.
After a spirited game of Marry / Fuck / Kill (Torture?) with the daddies from Daddy’s Home 2, the Shippers move on to their favorite Thanksgiving ships. They combine the plots of Home for the Holidays and Speed before finding the mathematical average of Christmas and Halloween to fudge a Thanksgiving Ship in Nightmare Before Christmas. Then they round out the festivities with a celebration of the Addams Family and the Peanuts characters!
There are five whole heroes on the Justice League - can we expect sparks to fly between any of them? Probably not, but at least we can find some comfort in the queer relationships in the DC Universe (like Ivy and Harley and Midnighter and Apollo). Then a question from Twitter has the Shippers coming up with break-ups that didn’t take. Plus: never eat your date’s garnish!
When date night comes down to a randomly-blooping time traveler and a woman who’s idea of fun is eating six plates of pasta, you know we’re talking BUMMER ships. Why do these relationships make us feel bad? Ugh: so many reasons. Let’s get through being bummed out together!
Can relationships blossom between across Hogwarts House lines? They can when the Shippers are talking Nemesis Ships (or “Nemeships, for short). It always starts as hate-fucking, but can it ever turn to true romance?
With special guest Jen Kleinrock, the gang breaks down the pros and cons of wearing a costume alone in your apartment on Halloween. The consensus is “do you.” Later, a startling discovery is made: Colin skipped right over Sleepaway Camp to watch 2, 3 & 4. Nevertheless, he proposes an unholy union between Angela and Jason. Jen, Kelly and Ryan stick with hero characters for their ships, but the gang reunited to mock Patrick’s tweet humor.
What would you do if your S.O. offered to b your phony alibi? What if it’s for murder? What if you m a y b e committed the murder? Later, the shippers get into sunnier topics: Disney ships! Sexy Jafar-Jasmine! Sexy Teen Simba! Sexy Animated Peter Gallagher (Prince Eric, obvs)!
