Hello babies!

How are your new years resolutions holding up? Probably incredibly well? On this very relatable episode, Emily visits a luxury gifting suite. Lisa is still enjoying being a horse owner. We have a follow up re: previous Wiki of the Week star Jean Calment, the world's oldest woman and possible fraudster. On this week's Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Tama (cat), a feline station manager at a Japanese train station.

When a bend-at-the-waist hug, leads to a father/son sailing trip, the Sisko men get to cranking. But when the adventure threatens to provoke a diplomatic incident, they’ll have to keep their new hobby in a bottle. Why is Dax cock-blocking Bashir? What’s a super comfy long-term sleeping solution? Can Chief O’Brien get “I love you, man” drunk? Romulan scientists are so vain, they probably think this discovery’s about them.

Pop Rocket

Once again we’re firing on all cylinders this week! It’s an ultra-packed show covering everything from The Masked Singer, Surviving R. Kelly,
MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. and the need to move beyond moralistic posturing in critiquing comedy.

The panel get into a lively discussion of Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up on Netflix show. One panelist loves it, one panelist thinks it’s “sinister”, and a panelist named Guy is so obsessed with one of the families featured on the show he couldn’t stop talking about them.

All Abouts
Margaret shares her thoughts on the heartbreaking and disturbing six-part series Surviving R. Kelly

Guy is all about the 1998 film The Opposite of Sex, and explains how Terry Gross’ recent conversation with Kevin Hart made him appreciate it more.

Wynter is all about the M.I.A. documentary.

And Karen loves the new reality singing competition show The Masked Singer.

That's My Jam

Margaret: Sharon Van Etten’s - Seventeen

Guy: Carol Channing - Before the Parade Passes By

Karen: The Beths - Future Me Hates Me

Wynter: Tom Tom Club -Wordy Rappington

It’s a trivia mix of film, TV and the internet this week on Go Fact Yourself with two of the creative forces behind Netlfix's “Mystery Science Theater 3000!”

Elliot Kalan is a newly published children’s author of the book Horse Meets Dog. He’s also the host of fellow Maximum Fun podcast The Flop House. The show is all about discussing bad movies, but Elliott’s made sure that that never impacts his love of great films… even if he can only watch them on his iPad these days.

Facing off against Elliott is actress Felicia Day. She’s most known for creating and starring in the online series The Guild. She’ll tell us all about some of her favorite topics and explain some of things she’s learned as she navigates motherhood.

In this episode, about 90’s sitcoms, classic films and the everlasting star-power of dinosaurs.

What’s the difference: Intention and Prevention

What’s the difference between “purposely” and “purposefully”?

What’s the difference between “cease” and “desist”?

Areas of Expertise

Elliott Kalan: Dinosaurs, Alfred Hitchcock, and Abraham Lincoln.

Felicia Day: The TV show “Dharma and Greg”, the board game “Settlers of Catan,” and baking cookies.

Get ready for some hot winter hot topics! First up the wonder twins react to the the live action remake of Aladdin. James has the inside scoop because he's in the "industry", and is upset, but not because of the reason you think. From there the twins easily go on a Robyn Williams tangent, which brings up the question of just why is Sally Field triggering for James? Will Nnekay entreat us with some live music? James gives his hand at ASMR, could this be a new career for him?  Which actor dominated the box office last year? The sailor gay kiss around the world has conservatives in a TWIST! Do blue characters on kids shows tend to connotate blackness? Did Marvel try to push Iceman back into the closet??? Nnekay has a spoiler free review of Aquaman- it's ridiculous. James watched John Cho's suspense thriller Searching- and it's so good, you've never seen anything like it! Then for the main event we breakdown Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In". We watched it, so you don't have to! The New year, new us continues!

Stephanie Beatriz on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Taking The Lead in The Light of the Moon

Stephanie Beatriz stars in Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Detective Rosa Diaz - easily the toughest cop in the precinct - she's brave, serious, and rides a motorcycle. The sixth and newest season just premiered at its new home: NBC!

Stephanie also starred in the 2017 movie The Light of The Moon. She plays Bonnie, a young woman living in Brooklyn with her boyfriend. Towards the beginning of the film, she goes through a vicious sexual assault, and the movie tells the story of the aftermath of that event - its effect on her work life, relationship, and even mundane daily decisions - like whether or not she wears headphones when she's walking off the subway. It's brutal to watch, but it's also nuanced, realistic, and really touching.

We'll talk about all of that and also how she and her Dad cemented their father-daughter bond by watching Seinfeld:

A quick warning - the second half of this interview contains some honest and frank talk about sexual assault and the trauma of dealing with it.

This interview originally aired in 2017.
