Hello babies!

Quick question - if we’re not supposed to pick our noses, why are our fingers *exactly* the right size to get up in there? What habits are you trying to break? On today’s episode, Emily goes to West Virginia and visits a secret government bunker. Lisa tells us about your butts. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “The Most Unwanted Song,” a novelty song designed to incorporate musical and lyrical elements annoying to most people. Everyone agrees it is much better than the song’s counterpart, The Most Wanted Song. We welcome actor/comedian/SNL alum Sasheer Zamata, who turned 21 while working at Disneyworld.  On Expert Hour, we are joined by a small unnamed child who will share some animal facts.

For reasons beyond our understanding, we were able to have Jimmy Buffett on this episode of My Brother, My Brother and Me. Jimmy Buffett looked at all the opportunities available to him, the real Jimmy Buffett, and decided that a good expenditure of his time was to be a guest on our podcast. We are eternally grateful.

Suggested talking points: Thorwatch 2017, Bathrobe Perimeter, Double Vampire, Popcorn Dupe, NCIS Party, GUESTSPERT JIMMY BUFFETT

Ep 186: A Choice of Incompetence (DS9 S1E8)

| 0 comments

When Dr. Bashir witnesses the death of a dangerous criminal, the officer in charge of his capture presupposes that...maybe he’s alive? But when a new lieutenant has some fresh ideas w/r/t station security, Odo struggles to ensure their working relationship doesn’t get burnt. When is a super dumb Bela Lugosi voice ever a good idea? How long should you have to wait before dispensing corporal punishment? Is it a good time to start killing characters? It’s the episode that ravaged us all!
