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. Ian Karmel joins us to discuss Drukpa Kunley the "Saint of 5000 Women" who would bless women by having sex with them.

Hello Babies! Thank you for joining us once again! This week, Lisa says a tearful goodbye to a dear friend. Spoiler: It's Kim Kardashian.

We're joined this week by Buzzfeed senior editor Louis Peitzman as we learn about the creepiness that is Reborn Dolls in our Wiki of the Week segment! Don't worry, Emily definitely goes in to her theories on alien reproduction and Louis leads us once again down the deep, dark path of Rumpology. Louis also tells us all about his love of horror movies, horrifying in-grown toe nails and his addiction to Simpsons Tapped Out.
