International Waters: Episode 38 Dressed as a Car

Amanda, Asterios and Dave
Asterios Kokkinos
Amanda Meadows
Andy Zaltzman
Josie Long

Americans Asterios Kokkinos and Amanda Meadows take on Brits Andy Zaltzman and Josie Long for ice-cream tasting, extreme wildlife shows and slash/fic with Dave Holmes.

As our respective nations mark Veterans and Remembrance Day, Baskin Robins has released a really inappropriate tribute. Doc Brown and The Doctor get sensual and consensual and we ask: do sharks have taints?

Written by Sarah Morgan.

Other useful links this week:

Asterios Kokkinos wants to recommend KC Green and Anthony Clark’s webcomic Back and to plug his own book The Enemies of Twenty-Something Mega Man.

Amanda Meadows wants to plug Devastator Press and their new anime / Japanese popculture special, Otaku and recommends John Darnielle (of The Mountain Goats) new novel, Wolf in White Van, which pretty much everyone else seems to be recommending too. Catch his Bullseye interview about the novel, here.

Andy Zaltzman wants to plug The Bugle Podcast and his own Satirist For Hire tour dates. Andy recommends cricket.

Josie Long sort of doesn’t want to recommend TV show, The Following, but is currently watching it anyway. She’s enthusiastic about UK comic book artists Tom Humberstone and Stephen Collins, both of whom have just released new collections. Josie’s going to be touring in 2015, find dates here.

And finally, Dave Holmes is on Twitter @DaveHolmes and hosts his live quiz show, The Friday Forty at LA’s Meltdown Theatre on the second Friday of every month and recommends the band Gentlemen Rogues.

One Bad Mother Episode 80: Mom Ruts, plus guest Jill Barber

One Bad Mother
Jill Barber

Biz and Theresa admit we're sometimes in a rut. In fact, as moms we've been in almost every kind of rut there is (other than PODCASTING RUT, obvi). The question is how to get out of them? We propose inventing a new rut that's actually an enjoyable place to be. Plus, Biz gets a free car wash, Theresa discovers a fifth food group called "fruit leathers," and we chat with singer-songwriter (and new mom) Jill Barber, who shares her secret for switching gears between loving mommy and live musician.

Come over to our facebook page where we invite you to share what kind of rut you're in and what you're doing about it! (Or, if you like a tad more privacy than fb allows, post your comments to the episode thread on the MaxFun forum!)

Throwing Shade #66: Gay Starbucks & Anti-Rape Face


Articulate your face, girl! This week, Erin covers the anti-rape face meme spawned by one college’s drug and alcohol counselor who should totally keep her job. And Bryan brings us the story of a New York pastor who’s trying to have it all--all the nut job homophobic conspiracy theories, at least. (Speaking of nut jobs, he thinks there’s semen in Starbucks drinks!) Plus, we’re doing farmer’s markets, hormonal cycles, Tina Turner, and condragulations to Loretta Lynn, the next attorney general of these United States!
