Now Picard has to go all Dixon Hill on everybody’s ass until he can get some answers. Will Data be stripped down to his wires? Where the hell was Guinan during this whole thing?

The holidays are here! Biz and Theresa head into the festive season wondering: if we say what concerns us and ask for help and the opportunity to actually enjoy at least some of it... maybe we actually will? If that doesn’t work, there's always #HidingInTheBathroom. Plus, Biz says goodbye to the ant and the stroller, Theresa is faced again with one of the great questions of the universe, and we talk to the very funny and very grounded Carla Naumburg, PhD, author of Ready, Set, Breathe: Practicing Mindfulness With Your Children for Fewer Meltdowns and a More Peaceful Family.

"Hey, you! Come over here! Wanna tell you about something important. One time, about ten years back, I did play a Street Fighter. And it filled me with a terrible rage. A real fury. Went outside, sun blinding my eyes -- and I'll be damned if I didn't start doing a Street Fight, right then and there. Got this scar, right here, above my nose. See it? Anyways, here's my homemade Kingdom Hearts fan zine."

Colin Quinn on his new Netflix special The New York Story, his love of New York, and race based comedy

Comedian Colin Quinn is best known for his work on Saturday Night Live, but would probably describe himself first and foremost as a stand-up comic. You might've seen him in Amy Schumer’s TrainwreckThe Cop Show. He loves New York, and has written and starred in five one-man shows that talk about his lifetime spent in the Big Apple.
This week, he sits down to talk to Jesse about his newest one-man show New York Story, that he produced alongside Jerry Seinfeld available on Netflix. They also discuss his time on Saturday Night Live and the right way to joke about race in 2016.

| 0 comments

Hello Cool Kids! This week, we have a lot of stories and we're pretty sure most of them are real! You see, there's been a lot of research done on "Fake News" lately. V.P. -elect Mike Pence attended the theatre this week and got more of a performance than he bargained for. The North Pole is way warmer than it should be and we should be more worried than we are. Kanye West is in the news again after ranting at a concert. We have a lot of Trump news to catch up on: Trump U Settlement, Conflict of Interest and his preliminary appointments. Brent and Travis also engage each other in a discussion on how the country can move forward and start working together. All that, plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy and don't forget to share!
