Hello babies!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Did you sleep well on your old twin bed at your parents’ house? Or maybe they turned your old room into some sort of multi use office situation and now you’re sleeping on a pull out couch bed? Either way, you’re sleeping in your own bed tonight and that always feels great. On Chunch Chat, Martha must have learned a trick from her friend Snoop Dogg because she’s doing a lot of wrapping! On Wiki of the Week, we read the page for Gef, also known as the Talking Mongoose or Dalby Spook. Nothing I respect more than the integrity required to take a lifelong hoax to the grave with you! We welcome Aparna Nancherla to the show to discuss her history selling Cutco knives. They’re actually great knives! Parenting expert Chandelyne Jean joins us to teach us how to be better parents to however many children we may or may not have.

*This week’s episode was recorded on Monday evening, which means this week’s RAW and Smackdown had not occurred yet for us to discuss them.

Roadblock: End of the Line wasn’t the best show, both from a wrestling and a naming perspective. But between the multiple title changes and the interesting story-telling decisions, there are plenty of things for the Nation of Conversation to talk about.

Plus: WWE is instituting the first-ever United Kingdom Championship. How do they make it work? Naturally, we’ve got the answers.

And whatever Total Nonstop Deletion is, one thing is certain: It’s going to make Hal’s head hurt.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

If you wanna talk about more wrestling throughout the week be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.

Throwing Shade

This week Bryan recalls being the team whistler for the Harlem Globetrotters while Erin shares her recent attempt at a hike up Runyon with Oliver. Also One Million Moms is at it again and they are pissed about Highlights Magazine featuring same sex families, and male dominated Christmas movies have been prominent for way longer than necessary but with the Bechdel test you can find something less male-centric this holiday season! Happy Holidays HoneyBunz!

On this week’s episode, Guy sits down with the newly assembled Pop Rocket gang and welcomes Karen Tongson to the team! In honor of her arrival, they discuss reboots; and the conversation gets heated! We find out the differences between reboots, remakes, and reimaginings. We also find out what everyone’s favorite reboot is, who has done it best, and why Americans aren’t good at making versions of British shows. And we find out, as we do every week, what everyone’s current jam is, and what they’re all about.

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler

That’s My Jam:

Margaret Wappler - Your Best American Girl-Mitski

Guy Branum - Christmas Is Coming-Miss Piggy

Wynter Mitchell - Randy-Justice

Karen Tongson - Babe-Styx

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

You can let us know what you think of Pop Rocket and suggest topics in our Facebook group or via @PopRocket on Twitter.

Episode 16: The Failure of the War on Drugs

| 0 comments

Just say no...to the War on Drugs! On this week's Adam Ruins Everything, we talk to Sheriff John Urquhart who appeared on the Drugs episode of the TV show. John is the sheriff for all of King County, Washington, which includes Seattle. He has seen the War on Drugs' failures firsthand as an undercover narcotics investigator and has since developed views on the drug crisis that are refreshing for a law enforcement officer. On this week's episode, Adam and Sheriff Urquhart discuss the implications of the heroin epidemic in the country, the racialization of the War on Drugs, the controversial idea of safe injection sites, and much more.

Adam is on Twitter @AdamConover and you can find past episodes and bonus content from the TruTV show at AdamRuinsEverything.com. Produced by Shara Morris for MaximumFun.org.
