In our All Career Corner Special, we investigate two possible vocations for Paula: News anchor and high-rise window washer. Frank Buckley of the KTLA Morning News gives us the lowdown on TV journalism, and HSG’s Hector Garcia gives us the highup on cleaning windows at altitude. Also, we address the latest on Thomas Coyne, pastors and nuns and how they feel about Paula’s vocabulary, and Adam’s cold.

On a surprisingly cultured episode, Paula and Adam explore high art and haute cuisine. Luke McKinley, Maitre d’ at the amazing Providence restaurant reveals the secrets of getting the right table and figuring out the menu. And if he were a wine, we don’t mind saying that we paired Mr. McKinley perfectly with Dr. Jennifer Greenhill, Art History Professor from USC, who helped us explore the very nature of art, from Jackson Pollack to Norman Rockwell to a toasted bagel left on a gallery floor. Plus - we debut our Department of Corrections, wherein we correct a few slight, teensy-weensy inaccuracies that may have made it onto our show.

Paula and Adam try to look busy when Maximum Fun’s CEO Jesse Thorn comes over for dinner. And by “dinner” we mean “Doritos and “Double Stuf Oreos.” Jesse helps us understand what makes a successful podcast, and then we demonstrate how much we’ve learned by talking about Paula’s clogged pipes. Yes, Star Tomlinson, owner and CEO of The Drain Co. helps us determine what Paula shouldn’t have flushed. Also, we unveil our new T-shirts, which are available now at the Maximum Fun Store!

What are Paula and Adam thankful for? You, dear listeners. You. Which is why we spend some time reading your letters and playing your fantastic submissions to our Theme Song Contest. And then we treat you to a review of a heartwarming Thanksgiving classic so you can decide if it’s worth your time to rush through that second helping of turkey and go out to see “Creed 2.” Yes, we watched the very first “Rocky.” SPOILER ALERT: In the original, the turkey doesn’t make it.

We take a hard look at the numbers - and how to make them prettier. Los Angeles Times data journalist Jon Schleuss tells us how to analyze elections - and our listeners. Then - if Paula quits comedy... how would she fare as a welder? On our Kareer Korner, Jeff Agnew of the Universal Technical Institute gives Paula a peek at what might await her behind the mask. Also, we take our newfound knowledge of data journalism to new heights as we unveil our online map of places where lost survivalist Thomas Coyne ISN’T.

On our Election Special, we explore who’s running - both for office and on the streets. First, we talk to Coach C.J. Foster to determine if Paula has what it takes to run a marathon. And then we run to the polls with USC’s Professor of Public Policy, Dr. Nicolas Duquette, who helps clear up all the mysteries on our ballots. Plus, Paula reports on her fantastic performance on Jimmy Pardo’s “Never Not Funny” podcast, and why she will probably never be invited back.

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.
