Hey Cool Cheesecake! Welcome to another special MaxFunDrive episode! We're so happy you could join us! WE ARE VERY EXCITED! First, in Headlines this week, the countdown to Brexit, Internet privacy, and Uranus is stinky! A couple of companies have had some PR issues this week: United and leggings, Cracker Barrel and Brad's Wife, and Thinx and their She-EO. A post about 14 children going missing in DC in the same 24 hour period went viral this week, but what's the real story? The Republican healthcare bill meant to real and replace the ACA... didn't. All that, plus the Wi-Five of the week! Enjoy and please consider supporting the MaxFunDrive! maximumfun.org/donate

Pop Rocket Episode 117: 1997 in Music

Wynter Mitchell

This week the gang is here to talk about the year 1997 in music and culture. There are a surprising number of 20 year old infallible pop hits that were influenced by a number of factors; the internet, CD-R's, Princess Diana passing, the death of Gianni Versace, the 24-hour news cycle, and of course Tupac and Biggies deaths. Wynter and Karen make it clear that they had the best 1997 as they were living in the city of possibilities (San Francisco), Margaret tells us why she doesn't know any Spice Girls songs, and we find out which panelist played sax in a ska band. Plus, in lieu of jams, we hear from each of the panelists what podcasts they are listening to lately.

And remember, if you haven't yet become a member or upgraded your membership, please do it before the end of #MaxFunDrive. Margaret Wappler has vowed to send every new person that joins a denim jacket w/ a celebrity inside, Karen Tongson will eat weird vending machine food for you and Guy Branum will share his family's fruit cobbler recipe. And his family is from Arkansas!

This week on One Bad Mother, in honor of the #MaxFunDrive, Theresa is BACK, with Baby Curtis, and we talk about the miracle of childbirth. The third times the charm! Plus we are joined by Jancee Dunn, to talk about her new book which works through the issues many couples have after a baby shows up in their life. Turns out, there maybe should have been some pre-baby talk about how stuff was going to work. Weird.

Adam Ruins Everything Episode 23: Susan Crawford On Investing in Internet Infrastructure

| 0 comments

Today's Adam Ruins Everything podcast guest is the go-to person when it comes to internet infrastructure: Susan Crawford. Susan is a professor at Harvard Law School and the author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age and the co-author of The Responsive City: Engaging Communities Through Data-Smart Governance.
 
On the podcast Susan tells us why the internet in the U.S. isn't as good as it should be; it's much slower than many other countries around the world because our cable conglomerates can control markets around the country. And unfortunately, these are leaving many of our communities in the technology dark ages. Susan tells Adam what we can do to promote internet infrastructure and how she's already seen that activism first-hand around the country.
 
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.

When the Entrepreneur pulls off the road to help a broken down Romulan ship, Geordi and Ro go missing. Now Data has to plan a funeral, and really only talks at length about that with Worf. How many breadboxes does one ship need? Who has the best orange wedges between the transporter chief, the helmsperson, and the backup doctor? Have Doctor Crusher and Geordi ever hung out? What’s the right karaoke song to whip out at a friend’s funeral? It’s an episode with headcanon we had to practice for with a toothbrush.
