Paula’s got a brilliant idea for a new cat litter box, but how can she make sure it doesn’t get stolen by Big Litter? Intellectual property attorney Michael Cohen (no, not THAT one) is here to explain patent law. And the LA Opera’s Jeremy Frank stops by again, this time to attempt to teach Paula and Adam to sing in harmony. Also, does life really taste better when you do it with Daisy (sour cream)? We put that claim through our rigorous testing process.

Remember that thing you said you weren’t going to forget? Paula doesn’t. Which is why we have cognitive psychologist Dr. Alan Castel on hand to help us jog our memories. Which, it turns out, might involve actual jogging. And speaking of things that are going once... going twice... in this week’s Career Corner, Auction Specialist Zack Krone helps us find out if Paula has a future as an auctioneer. Also, if Paula has no future at all, at least we’ve now discovered what we’ll be listening to at her funeral.

It’s the second and final week of the Maximum Fun Pledge Drive, and we’re ever-closer to our self-decreed goal of 10,000 new members. Actually, we don’t know how close we are, but if we hit it, we’ll throw a party. And if we throw a party, it’ll be with the help of our guest, events planner Beth Helmstetter! Also, in preparation for the release of Tim Burton’s “Dumbo,” Paula and Adam review a related classic, Brian De Palma’s “Scarface!” We promise this makes sense. A little. Also, meet the first winner of our Hotel Soap Contest, and we find a whole class full of Nobodies listening to Paula Poundstone... in Sweden!

It’s the first week of the Maximum Fun Pledge Drive, wherein we show what we’re made of. Literally. Genetics guru Dr. Wayne Grody walks us through the human genome, and explains why its riddles go a little bit deeper than “23andMe.” But we’re not calling it a rip-off, because we’ve got forensic psychologist Dr. Jasmine Tehrani on hand to tell us what a REAL con job is all about. Plus, we don’t just get into Paula and Adam’s genes, we also get into their jeans. And we find out if either are too tight.

The outrage is palpable as Paula processes a horrifying betrayal: Butterfinger has an “improved” new recipe! Investigations and taste-tests ensue, including a cameo from the actual “Mikey” from the Life cereal commercials. Then we dig deeeep into massage with neuromuscular therapist Michael Greenspan. And finally, do you love or hate the urban scooter craze? It turns out that personal injury attorneys love it... and hate it. Attorney Catherine Lerer walks us through how even if the revolution won’t be televised... it WILL be litigated.

In this episode we explore the two things that make Paula’s home challenging: Ping-pong and mold. First, table tennis champion Kim Gilbert lets us in on all the deep secrets of her craft... including basic rules. Then, Dr. Marc Meth (yes, real name!) re-educates us about the horrors of mold. Spoiler alert: Way less horrifying than you thought. Thanks, Internet! Also, will you be framed for “vomiting in your Uber?” If you live in Miami...mayhap. Mayhap.

Is Paula’s trainer really doing what’s best for her, or does he just get better cell reception on the gym floor? Kelly Dormandy, head strength and conditioning coach for the LA Sparks, explains peak fitness without breaking a sweat. Then - why can’t Paula and Adam recognize each other? USC’s Dr. Irving Biederman walks us through the science of facial recognition, and why some of us suck at it. Also, Paula and Adam discuss which was less pleasant - the Polar Vortex in the Midwest or the possum in our faces on Miranda Street.

It’s Valentine’s Day, and we talk to a bonafide matchmaker to find out why what she offers is better than Swiping Right. Then, in anticipation of this year’s rom-com “Isn’t it Romantic,” Paula and Adam revisit the most successful rom-com of all time, “Pretty Woman.” Does it hold up? And what, exactly, is being held up? Plus, was Paula hasty in rebranding the “tramp stamp?” Our Dutch friends tell us why we should’ve gone for “ass antlers.”
