The living and the dead can agree on one thing: Real estate is important. First, Dr. David Sloane, author of “Is the Cemetery Dead,” walks us through the latest trends in, um, after-aftercare. Then it’s time for Career Corner, in which luxury realtor Taylor Hasselhoff helps Paula decide whether she’s got a future as a real estate agent. Also, Paula and Adam pop a couple of pills to test allergy medicine Allegra’s claim that it can help us “get back to the moment.” And the search continues for our show’s favorite no-show, survivalist Thomas Coyne.

Paula and Adam take a week off - but not before preparing this Very Special Episode! First - your questions, asked and answered. We read some of the many dilemmas that have been on our listeners’ minds, and Paula does her level best to help out. Then, we reach back into the archives - way, way back to the spring of 2018 - to offer a never-before-heard prequel movie review! The long-awaited sequel to Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pacfic RIm” was coming out, and we review the original to let you know whether the new one might be worth your time. SPOILER ALERT: Paula and Adam do not totally agree on the dramatic potential of monsters vs. giant robots.

Ever wonder why the simple act of singing with someone feels good? Well, Science knows, and Science explains - in the form of our guest, USC research psychologist Assal Habibi. Then we hit the road with driving instructor Josh Mendoza to find out if anyone will ever fully unravel the mystery of the four-way stop (SPOILER ALERT: No.). Also, Paula’s “balloon animals” and more theme songs - including one that touts Paula’s genius and talent, and Adam’s... attendance.

We get a return visit from Dr. Jonathan Bowman, who instructs us how to tell if someone is lying to us. But we’re not sure we can trust him. Then, Paual reveals her deep fear of being the first person on the scene of an accident, and Giovanni Garbutt of @American First Responder explains how to respond first. Speaking of lying (possibly) or dying (allegedly) - we get an update on the status of our missing survivalist Thomas Coyne.

We explore two of the most efficient ways to get organized: Decluttering... and murder! First, Clutter Healing’s Lili Pettit teaches us how to live better by cleaning up our personal environment. And then we watch a space monster declutter the Central American jungle environment by clearing away all the unsightly humans. Yes, Paula and Adam review the 1987 Schwarzenegger-infused action classic “Predator” to help you decide whether the upcoming sequel, “The Predator” will be worth your time and money.

The Birdhouse and the Bees. Got bees? Paula does. Steve Downs, AKA "Beecasso," tells Paula what's happening with the beehive that's in her birdhouse. Veteran Lyft Driver Virginia Jones lets us know what it's like inside the gig economy, and how you too can become be an absolutely terrible passenger. Also - theme songs! You sent 'em; we are FAR from tired of 'em. And, oh yeah, we expose the FBI plot to bust our Miranda Street studios.

A genuine 3rd grade teacher tells us how to get the most out a parent/teacher conference, and we learn why those conferences sometimes make you cry more than getting your genitals pierced. No, really: EdDHerrera of Prix Body Piercing walks us through the ins and outs of ins and outs that many people would rather not think about. Also, DJ Poundstone takes requests - answering questions from some of our listeners and playing the latest hits from our Theme Song Contest.

Episode 5: Infested! Paula investigates two household pests that have been plaguing her: Houseflies and late-night TV ads. First, applied social psychologist Dr. Gina Pingatore helps unravel how advertisers make us buy things we don’t want, and why the color red makes us hungry.

Also, some early entries in our Theme Song Contest - including some EDM from Chile (yes, really).
