Biz and Theresa talk about whether and for how long it's ok to be naked in front of our kids and vice-versa. And, as if that's not awkward enough, we also discuss names for all those body parts that are out there in the open! Plus, Biz solves part of the “poop in the tub” problem, Theresa's genius moment and failure are both thrilling and urine-related, and we talk to Al Watts, president of the National At-Home Dad Network.

NEW EPISODE! We try out the "Flex Belt," an Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) device, also known as a belt that shocks your ab muscles into flexing, thereby making you ripped and swole, or so the theory goes. Will Ross and Carrie be the new American Gladiators? (Probably not.) Listen anyway!
This week, we take a look at 1995's Tank Girl, a sci-fi/action comedy with a feminist message. Plus, Rhea shares a movie that made her (to Cameron's chagrin), and we parse our feelings about the Lego movie spinoff.
Next week we'll be watching Furious 7, which is in theaters April 3.
Why does Bryan seek a 4.75 pound chicken? The answer is inside this week's Throwing Shade.Plus, did you know the TSA has been looking for bombs in sisterlocks and Indiana's religious freedom bill is doing it all wrong, hunty!? All that and we talk to superstar standup Nikki Glaser about all the self-help books she's read.
Gaby Dunn (@gabydunn) joins the ladies to discuss James Deen, Las Vegas, Jeff Goldblum, triplets, bisexuality, being gay and more! Produced by David Janove, intern Kailey Godoy, theme song by Zach Ames.
Steve brings the case against his best friend Scott. Years ago, Scott introduced Steve to a love of hockey, by inviting him to professional games and teaching him how to play. Steve went on to play in a local rec league, but Scott quit playing entirely. Now Steve wants his friend to get back into the sport and play one last season with him.
Should Scott get back out on the ice, or continue to watch from the stands? Only one man can decide.

Hello Buddies! Or shall we say: "Beep boop bop boop beep"? If you were able to understand that, you're clearly an undercover robot! Accuse! Or maybe you are the internet? Yes that's right THE INTERNET become sentient and turned against us all?! Help us decide if Wall-E was a robot uprising movie! Was there crazy amounts of baby-makin' happening in Zion in the Matrix movies? How would one fight the robotic onslaught? How would you even know it's happening?! Also, Travis has never seen Terminator so feel free to hold that against him!

The musician, producer and 73-year-old mastermind of Parliament-Funkadelic, George Clinton, has never been shy of the limelight. He started his career singing doo wop, later found himself writing songs for Motown, and finally wound up creating a wholly unique sound and visual experience with Parliament-Funkadelic. They made hits like One Nation Under A Groove and Flashlight and their performances were as funky as their tunes.
In recent years, Clinton has found himself entangled in a series of legal battles over the copyrights of his songs. While fighting in the courts, George found himself fighting for his health as well. The doctor of the Funk gave himself his own prognosis: if he was going to continue a musical career and regain agency in his business affairs, he had to clean up his act, and he has.
The pioneer of funk joins us this week to talk about the evolution of his musical career, getting wild onstage, and putting forward momentum back into his musical career -- and even gives us an update on Sly Stone.
You know those tags you see on walls, park benches and trash cans everywhere? You might not think it's something beautiful, but Christian Acker does. His book Flip the Script is a look at graffiti typography, and celebrates the art of tagging -- one of the last strongholds of highly refined penmanship.
Acker collected writing and spoke to graffiti artists all over the country, to chronicle and analyze hand styles from Oakland to Queens. In a world where people too rarely place ink to paper, we'll look at a typographical expression that reflects your individuality, roots, and even how long you've been practicing.
