Amanda brings the case against her husband, Mike. Amanda wants to rearrange their apartment to better suit their live/work needs. Mike wants to keep things as they are. Who is right? Who is wrong? Only one man can decide.

Filling in for Jesse this week is Guest Baliff Tom Scharpling. Tom hosts The Best Show on WFMU every Tuesday from 9 PM to midnight EST. There are all sorts of different ways to listen to the show: those in the New York or New Jersey area can listen by tuning their radios to 91.1 FM or 90.1 FM respectively. Those not in the New York or New Jersey area (or those who cannot afford radios) can listen in live on WFMU.org. And for those who don't believe in live-streaming, The Best Show podcast (and its bite-sized companion, Best Show Gems), can be downloaded on iTunes.

Special thanks to Marcus Parks, who provided engineering assistance with this episode. It was recorded at The Creek and The Cave in Long Island City, home of the Cave Comedy Podcast Network.

a simple request

I want Judge Hodgman's impression of his cat as my ring tone

New stuff

They should also be aware that anything they add to the office room, a new chair and drafting table for the studio space, or even a separate studio should all be tax deductible. As is the % of the rent that represents what they're using for work. I realize they're both students, but if either one of them is drawing income from the work they do in these spaces they could get a good sized chunk of the money they spend back from the government.

Cat's name

They should rename their cat to Pooh Pooh so that's it's not disgusting and thematically goes with Tigger
