Biz and Theresa fall back on “making jokes” as our defense mechanism while we tackle the topic of Postpartum Depression, the way the media portrays it, and our own experiences with the ups, downs and way-downs of post-baby life. We then speak with Katherine Stone, founder of Postpartum Progress, who helps us understand postpartum depression and other mental illnesses related to pregnancy and childbirth, including postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, depression during pregnancy, and more.

What are you doing this summer? Well, if you’re like Bryan, you’re totally ignoring Erin’s suggestion of going to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor aka the world’s most exciting cesspool. Also, the Pope says dumb stuff about women in the church. And Pat Sajak meets a gay person for the first time on Wheel of Fortune. Plus, the amaaaaaazing singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten sits down with us to talk harmonies, Working Girl and the toddler from The Passion of the Christ.

Katie brings the case against her boyfriend, Dallas. They enjoy visiting Disneyland together, but Dallas refuses to go on Katie's favorite ride. Katie says he's got nothing to lose by giving it a try, and everything to gain. Dallas says already knows he won't like it, and he's OK with missing out. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Summer is here and you know what that means - It’s time for Bryan to trick a bunch of old women into going down the rides at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. And hold on to your hats, because the Pope got caught saying some dumb stuff about women, prompting Erin’s soon to be classic segment: "Dude, C’mon Man You Don’t Get It." Plus, the fantastic Sharon Van Etten is here to conduct a rousing rendition of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” You have to hear to believe!
