They even share a more serious sister-to-sister conversation about how far teens have come in accepting one another. Then Rileigh has to go and make fun of Sydnee's sweaters again.

The Flop House: Episode #197 - Seventh Son

The Flop House

Is Seventh Son seventh fun? Perhaps, though we’re not sure what “seventh fun” means. Meanwhile, Elliott pitches us on FXXX, Stuart expresses his love for fantasy bullshit maps, and Dan feels terrible about mixing up En Vogue and TLC.

We also debut Jonathan Biegen’s “That’s How it Works (feat. The Flop House).” And a warning for sensitive listeners — we briefly get serious during the letters section with some talk about suicide.

Movies recommended in this episode:

Close Range
Diary of a Teenage Girl
Middle of Nowhere

Sorry to interrupt, but we thought you might like to find out a little bit about conversational etiquette! The world of small talk can be a terrifying and dangerous place! How do you even begin to talk to someone at a business conference? What about all those swear words I keep hearing about?! Yes, with body language, eye contact and word choice to worry about, why does anyone ever talk to anyone at all?! Because you have to to get by in the world, that's why! So come with us and let's walk through the ins and out of conversation together!

We have a recommendation and it comes from this great nation! Well prepare to hear a whole lot of nothing about Grease Live, because neither Erin nor Bryan watched the 3 hour television event. This week Donald Trump may not be the worst candidate for gay people, and Walmart had to pay millions to a woman who was wrongfully  fired. On second thought, Donald Trump is terrible for everyone.
