Greetings, O Coolest of Kids! This week, we delve into the truth about a recent male birth control study and the shockingly sexist history of birth control. There’s also a heartwarming wi-five about a kid from the totally-real-and-not-a-cartoon land of Tasmania, and we have a guest that’s so special you’re going to FLIP YOUR LID AND BUST YOUR BUTTONS AND okay it’s Travis. Yeah, he came out of paternity leave to do a special segment on the upcoming presidential election. Enjoy, and remember to share!
When a twist beginning crash lands Captain Picard and young Wesley Crusher (The Boy?!) onto a desolate planet, the constant bickering drives the third wheel of their group to drink. It's too bad Commander Riker is too busy taking out someone else's trash to mount a timely rescue mission. What does it take to get a 6 star Uber rating? Are children chained inside the saucer section? Is this how radiation works? It's the episode where we introduce a new mountainside sculpture to our repertoire!
It looks like Christmas has come early with a Flash Back Friday Patti LaBelle Holiday Presidential Christmas Tree Lighitng Extravganza circa 1996... and it is a dooze! The big question is: WHERE. ARE. HER. BACKGROUND SINGERS?!?! (Don't worry not only will we renact it for you thorughout the episode but we've posted the link). In the kornes first up it's James posing the question: Do I sound gay?! Before you answer we investigate what does it mean to "sound gay" inspired by the documtary 'Do I Sound Gay?', along with what does it mean to be "straight acting" and who all these "straight acting" gays are truly at war with. Nnekay gives us the full low down on other Black Podcast that you should be listening to. When did Halloween become mainstream? Probably more recent than you think, and Nnekay is going to give us the history. James has another Quizlet Korner that is horrifying. Christian Hell Houses? Lesbian Bachloretts? That's so Raven? Barrack Obama and the Gays? All in this epsidoe of Minority Korner!
Patti LaBelle Christmas Extravaganza (You're Welcome):
This week on Sawbones, Dr. Sydnee and Justin delve into what may just be history's oddest actual medical diagnosis: Frankenberry stool.
Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers
Growing up in the Calvinist church, Paul Schrader didn't see a movie until his late teens. Since then, he has more than made up for it, writing, producing, and directing influential films such as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Affliction.
Willem Dafoe, having worked on 7 films in the past with Schrader, trusts his film-making style and sensibility. Dafoe's Hollywood breakout role was in the 1985 film To Live and Die in L.A., and has starred in many other beloved films such as Platoon and the Last Temptation of Christ.
This week, Schader and Dafoe sit down with Jesse to discuss their new film, Dog Eat Dog. They discuss Schrader’s childhood, his earlier screenplay and directorial premieres and Dafoe school’s Jessie on acting and how he gets into character when portraying psychotic characters.
Thirty years ago, David Crosby was one of the biggest rock stars in the world, being a part of two game changing and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted bands Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Byrds. Decades after his depart from playing with bands, he continues to play music on his own.
In conversation with Jesse, David discusses his transition into music, his addiction and recovery from drugs, and his latest album Lighthouse.
This week, Jesse recommends Ray Barretto’s inaugural album Acid as an album that had much ambition and achieved so much at a time when the music on it was still new to the American aural palette.
We’ve gone to Hell (in a cell) and back again and the Nation of Conversation is ready to explain how… adequate the show was. And there’s plenty of other news to tackle like Dolph Ziggler’s Intercontinental open challenge, the brand new Cruiserweight show 205 live and why Mike thinks Talking Smack is even better than Smackdown.
Plus, Hal and Danielle break down Sasha and Charlotte’s Women’s Title match that main evented the Hell in a Cell Pay Per View. Why did some folks online say that match didn’t live up to expectations? What does it mean for the future of WWE’s Women’s division?
For some help answering those questions, they’re joined by Mira Waters from Fight Booth. She recently wrote an article entitled ‘Sexism in WWE is Over, What a Relief,’ about the match and the internet’s skewed reaction to it.
The three count:
Danielle put over Lucha Underground’s latest and greatest angle.
Mike put over The Killing the Town podcast by Lance Storm and Cyrus.
Hal put over Daniel Bryan’s tone deaf singing on Talking Smack.

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!
