Biz and Theresa talk about our decisions to stop having kids and how even these supposedly settled matters can leave us feeling uncertain. Oh and don’t forget, life can always laugh in our faces and find a way to remind us that we don't necessarily have the power to control the outcome of our decisions! Plus, Biz is scared of Halloween, Theresa looks great, and we talk to the queen of children’s music, Laurie Berkner.

Travis and Teresa had a baby! We're so excited for them, but we're also very excited for YOU! Because you're about to hear a live episode we recorded in Boston this past July that turned out super, super great. Thanks to everyone in attendance, and to all our listeners for sticking with us during Trav's leave of absence!
This week Erin uses her PBS knowledge to defeat the moths infesting her home while Bryan deals with the great lakes flowing out of his nostrils. The Washington Blade posts an article on gay partners who are voting for opposite candidates, D-R-A-M-A, and Tech companies have found in studies that people prefer young female voices as personal assistants. Happy November honeybuns!
Heather brings the case against her husband, Joe. Joe is too competitive with Heather’s mother when she initiates challenges with him through a fitness tracking app they both use. Because of this, he has chosen to opt out of her challenges. Heather thinks these fitness challenges are a good way for them to be in touch and wants him to play along.
Thank you to Jon Barr for suggesting this week's title! To suggest a title for a future episode, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook. We regularly put a call for submissions.

Ross and Carrie continue their investigation of Pastor Melissa Scott and her late husband Gene Scott by poring through hours of "Doc's" old sermons, including lessons on astrology, evolution, and camel murder. Then they shove Carrie in Ross's trunk and go on an adventure into the secluded and luxurious community where Melissa Scott may or may not live.
Plus, they go back to church but the devil keeps them out!

When Riker inhales the wrong fart, his memory of the last sixteen years is wiped. He is the captain now, but he has no idea how he got there! Da fuq is Riker asking this turbo lift? Why is Worf so hunchy? Did they get that mask at the Halloween store? It’s an episode with one of the all time bad buttons.
Food, glorious food! There are so many great kinds of cuisine out there, so how do you pick which one is the best? Easy! You have Mark and Hal decide, along with the help of John DiMaggio, Jean Grae, and Judge John Hodgman. Together they survey the culinary landscape, using only the most scientific methods to reach the most logical conclusion.
It may be November now, but it's still spooky in the States for at least another week since it's the spookiest season of them all...Election Season! In celebration of the upcoming election, the sisters wanted to give everyone a bit of help just so you know exactly how to vote (since it's super important!) And Rileigh explains why Thanksgiving is just Pre-Christmas too, so Merry Christmas/Election Season everyone!
