As we wait for the ball to drop from high above Miranda Street, Paula and Adam review 2018... and how much it sucked! Still, there were some high points - weren’t there? Maybe a certain podcast making its debut...? We ring in the New Year by sampling some of our listeners’ lowest expectations for 2019. Also, with M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” poised to hit theaters, we review the first of its two prequels, 2000’s “Unbreakable,” starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and the surprising hair stylings of Robert Louis Stevenson.

The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 242: Uncle Terrans (DS9 S3E19)

| 0 comments

When Commander Sisko gets taken to the Mirror Universe, he makes strong choices w/r/t “the right thing to do” vs. “the Mirror Universe thing to do.” But when confronted face to face with his Prime Dead wife, his mission begins to suffer from a case of performance anxiety. Is the human brain capable of grappling with the sexual morality of multiple universes? Are the Pakleds in charge? Should we be getting more cut fruit in our diet? It’s a feel-good version of politics that you wish existed.

Come see us live on tour with Greatest Gen Khan!

Ross and Carrie Meet Trevor: Rogues' Gallery Edition

| 0 comments

Trevor Heasley joined the Church of Scientology two and a half years ago, when a church official offered him a job creating marketing materials for a local org. While searching the internet for Scientology logos, he happened upon a podcast by two people who went undercover in the Church, and eventually got kicked out and unofficially labeled suppressive. Knowing he was defying Church orders, Trevor listened. And not long after, he had left his job and his Church. Trevor joins us to share his momentous story, and bravely disclose what he says he witnessed during his short, but intense, devotion to Scientology.

Minority Korner

We start this episode off with a round up of all things 2018. Can you even believe it?!?!? Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians came out, the Olympics happened- this year has been a whirlwind! We got the wind knocked out of in 2017 and we persevered in 2018. We kicked our asses into gear and plan to continued to so in 2019. Nnekay and James share their hopes and dreams for the next year. With a little detour into why mud baths are annoying and James' trip to the Van Jones' Show. In the Korners- we have our two favorite from the past year: Nnekay's korner is from Episode 140 and is all about the epidemic plaguing our country: Black Maternal Mortality. James' Korner is from Episode 124 and is about Black Queens (four specifically)... remember Queen Candice!? Also a lot of questionable pronunciations.
