Biz and Theresa explore the confusing moment when things go well. How is it possible when we know it will all melt down? Well, doesn’t it always melt down and don’t we want to be be proven right that we can’t do anything nice? UHG! Be it play dates, travel, staying up late or any other set of circumstances that usually go wrong with kids, maybe we should embrace the amazing feeling of the worst not happening. Plus Biz gets a Thanksgiving surprise, Theresa has a dream and we welcome back actor, director, screenwriter Kay Cannon to talk about her new movie Blockers and being cool with teens having sex.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 165: Wake Me Up Before You Go, Bro

| 11 comments

Declan brings the case against his older brother Taran. Taran is a heavy sleeper and often relies on Declan to wake him up in the mornings. Declan thinks he should get used to a real alarm clock, since they won't be living together forever. Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.

If you want to join our conversation about this episode, please click on the Forum link below!

You can see and hear the alarm clock in question HERE. Please be sure to lower your computer volume or wear headphones before watching.

Thanks to William Wotawa for naming this week's case! To suggest a title for a future episode, like us on Facebook at Judge John Hodgman. We regularly put a call for submissions.
