MBMBaM 332: TV Toilet Tourist

| 0 comments

It's our first episode as all dads, and it's kind of a club banger? Like, you can probably chalk that up to the sleepless delirium that two of the three of us are undergoing, but maybe it's just a manifestation of that good, good lifelong responsibility.

Suggested talking points: Dadvice, Young Lovers, Food Pic Stealer, Where Everybody Knows Your Name, Cool Weed Tricks, Touched By An Old Angel, While You Were Sleeping Fans, Courtesy Ginger Ale, Ducking Punches

The Greatest Generation Ep 90: It Isn't Quite Spooky, But It Is Upsetting (S4E17)

| 0 comments

When the Enterprise responds to a distress call sent by a ship full of dead bodies, what the away team finds over there keeps everyone up at night. But when sleep issues threaten to kill everyone on the ship, it's up to Counselor Troi to find a solution that may have something to do with her weird pot dreams. Is this episode a sequel to The Naked Now? Will a B-plus Pacino impression cut it on this podcast? Could Riker's hair be an instrument for measuring the crew's health? It's the episode that's basically Nagilum's wet dream.

Minority Korner

We are LIVE! With a real studio audience and everything, recording from the Legendary Steppenwolf Theatre at the First Annual Chicago Podcast Festival, in the Windy City! So windy, Nnekay and James had some rocky flights in. We weren't ready for Christmas until we found Chicago's magical Christmas Town Village! Omarosa, Ben Carson, and especially Peter Thiel of Paypal, James is coming for you as he investigates and potentially answers why people, minorities, women, or even LGBT folk sometimes vote against themselves. Nnekay lifts up the millennials as she highlights their response to the election of D. Double Butt with their protest walkouts #SanctuarySchool. And it has a hashtag, so you know it's cool! Also, why didn't James and Nnekay participate in UC Santa Cruz annual naked runs? In Quizlet Korner Nnekay turns to the audience for help as we comb through potential celebrity "outings", tampons for presidents, sex tapes, and secret gay tunnels! And most importantly: WE'RE LIVE!!!

Biz and Theresa think back to what life was like when we were just passengers in the cars of life and are fairly certain there was no way we were distracting to our parents. We then impress each other with our feats of managing small children while driving…who knew you could open granola bars and pitch them over your head perfectly to land in your toddler’s mouth? Plus, Biz fears the new year and Theresa gobbles up the good times!
