Hello Babies! On this week's episode we wonder: how did we get things done before we had podcasts to listen to? Lisa has yet another crazy bee story! Emily crowd-sourced a celebrity sighting! Is there a one-stop shop for all appointments, hair and doctor? We're joined by writer Jake Fogelnest to talk about having your cake and eating it too! Jake also tells us all about 1970's exploitation theatres in New York City. There's also a discussion about body pillows and which mascots we think are sexy! In Expert Hour, we're joined by expert Tarp to learn all about Southern Living! It's a great time for content creators!

Hello Babies! We don't know about you, but we are having a great day! Not only has Lisa adopted a whole new "post-massage" persona, but Bojack Horseman Season 2 is available now! Lisa has also found some notes from her childhood that basically prove that as a child, she could see the future. Also, Martha Stewart has a friend named Muffin and she made her muffins for her birthday! Speaking of Muffin, what would our names be if we we're born today? Comedian Chris Thayer joins us to discuss all the living and non-living things that have made their way over Niagara Falls! Chris also makes us all feel a little better about secretly enjoying Sublime. Expert Ficole Dyer explains how to improve your hiking experience and maybe even find love on the trails! Come, take a stroll with us!

Hello babies! Hot-diggety-dog, do we have a good episode for you! Emily has an obsession with a Japanese cat game and Lisa got a massage! Lisa also watched a Periscope that involved a bee and a nostril. If you could have any exotic pet (without any of the negatives) what would it be? Comedian Allen Strickland-Williams joins us to learn about pre-mastication and take part in an impromptu Minions point/counterpoint in this week's Wiki of the Week. He's also distracted by a fly before telling us everything he knows about presidential elections and being a page at NBC LA. Expert Parker Kerry gives the straight scoop on frosting and icing, then tells all about his campaign for an elected position on a frosting forum! Enjoy!

Hello Babies! We talk about a lot of stuff on this episode, but frankly we talk about Magic Mike XXL and we're not really sure why you would care about anything else... We're also continuing the tradition from last episode and we're enjoying mimosas! Brendan Fraser makes a cameo in Chunch Chat and we talk about getting mad! Bojack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg joins us to talk about Evander Berry Wall, the KING OF DUDES! He also knows a shocking amount about boy band guru and blimp enthusiast Lou Pearlman. Elroy Barnard walks us through the world of Beanies in Expert Hour! Strap in folks, its a good old-fashioned Dude-Off!

Hello Babies! On this week's episode we wonder what kind of stuff do you do while you listen? We talk in depth about IUDs! We've got a BEN CHUNCH UPDATE for you! Lisa and Emily discuss what jokes are off limits and what they would do if they won the lottery.
