Hello Internet! Sorry for the delay, but Teresa was very under the weather! She spend a lot of time coughing in to a handkerchief! While I fanned the germs away with a fan! Also, there were some napkins laying around. Would you like to learn about said accessories? You do? Great! They each have their own interesting history and traditions! Learn how to flirt with a fan and what to do when someone loans you a hankie! Plus, we answer a whole bunch of your questions about them! Enjoy!
Hello babies! Damn Daniel, we're back at it again with the month old memes! In Chunch Chat, Martha looks sensational as she trolls us from her hoverboard. Sabrina Jalees (Comedian, Writer) stops by Wiki Of the Week to celebrate everyone’s favorite Polish holiday, Śmigus-dyngus, commonly known to us Americans as Dyngus Day! Hope you have your pussy willows ready! Sabrina reminds us of Drake’s raw sexual magic and takes us on a journey to the home of Whitney Houston.

Michael Showalter joins Jesse and special guest co-host Karen Kigariff for a discussion of his new movie Hello, My Name is Doris, the most charismatic people Jesse has ever met, and Karen's experience working on The Marriage Ref with Jerry Seinfeld.
Hoooo boy, more Scientology? Yes. Yes, it is. As our series rounds the midway point, join Ross and Carrie on a visit to the L. Ron Hubbard Life Exhibition. Let your eyes widen as you hear the various questionable biographical details of the founder's life, from being the youngest-ever Eagle Scout to performing microbiological studies... by himself. Plus, Carrie tests the e-meter, Ross recounts a previous visit where he was ejected from the building, and we review the official Scientology literature on the controversial practice of "disconnecting" from loved ones who question the Church.

And finally, Dave Holmes is on Twitter @DaveHolmes and hosts his live quiz show, The Friday Forty at LA’s Meltdown Theatre on the second Friday of every month. His book Party Of One comes out June 28th and is available for pre-order now. Dave would like to recommend Super Ex Girlfriend.
There has never been a more divisive topic than this one, but fortunately, your intrepid hosts are never afraid to back down from a challenge. Who will come out on top: The Golden Boy of Memphis, or the Favorite Son of Philadelphia?
Don't worry, everyone: We Got This.
Biz and Theresa hash out the possible reasons why Biz can’t stop saying “no” to EVERYTHING her kids want to do, even when there is no good reason for it. “No, you can’t play with that toy that is totally yours and is actually fine for you to play with! Wait, I mean, ok.” Plus, Biz feels cheated by TV again, Theresa survives an epic public temper tantrum, and we ask why so many kids were eating cake in the 50’s?! And, we have an incredibly helpful conversation about talking with our kids about sex and gender with sexuality educator and author Cory Silverberg, whose wonderful new books include What Makes a Baby and Sex Is A Funny Word.

Have we got a show for you, Cool Kid! First, in the intro, let's talk about a gun that looks like a phone! Learn about the birth and corruption of a Twitter bot named Tay. Hear some revelations about UNICORNS! A lot to cover in the Political Round UP! Birdie Sanders, Trump vs. Anderson Cooper, and MORE! Last week, a VERY controversial bill was passed in North Carolina. All that, plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy!
We did it you guys! Thank you to everyone who donated to the MaxFun drive! Okay enough with the fun because there's been another win for bigotry in North Carolina AND in Indiana, two states that I guess we need to start paying attention to now. Also the brains behind the amazing company Conscious Period are here and they are flowing with tampon puns!
