We explore all the important B’s: Birds, Butterfingers, Bryan Cranston, and Brownfield, Maine. Ecologist Dan Cooper visits to help Paula identify and communicate with the birds in her from and back yards. We explore the ongoing tragedy that is the new Butterfinger recipe. And the formerly bucolic “Ken Lezebnik’s America” takes another unexpectedly dark turn...

Paula has two big questions: Will sharks kill her on her vacation, and could she make it as a valet parker? The first question remains open, but we have Lenny Tim from Vantage Parking to guide Paula... on our Career Corner. Also - fan art! And the preliminary results of Paula’s application to represent Frontier Communications in their “no smartphone” challenge!

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone Ep 55: Calling all Foodies

On our first cuisine special, we explore two special food groups: Corn-based specialties... and bugs! First, we conduct a thorough taste test of our Moldovan audience’s favorite, mamaliga: Does it taste like grits, polenta, or Froot Loops? Then, Aly Moore, founder of “Bugible” and “Eat Bugs Events,” brings actual insects to our table. Is this the eco-friendly future of cuisine? And how does it taste? Paula tries it all for you. [Adam tries some of it.]

It took Paula nine years to write her first book. It took her seven years to write her second book. Can Paula overcome her writer's block to get the third book done in let's say five years? Francesca Gacho, Graduate Writing Coach at USC’s Annenberg School of Communication, is here to help get Paula's brain unclogged. Then, if you can believe it, sometimes, we're wrong! So get ready for another installment of "We've Made a Terrible Mistake!". Also, Ken LeZebnik's America takes us to home of Thousand Island dressing, Clayton, NY. And we'll find out if Paula authored an article on hematology!

Are you ready for Disney’s “live action” remake of “The Lion King?” Paula and Adam prepare you by reviewing another King: Elvis. Does “Viva Las Vegas” hold the key to this summer’s would-be blockbuster? Also, we reminisce about our summer vacations and get an update on Paula’s soon-to-drop Butterfinger rap single.

Okay, turns out Paula didn't have a brain tumor. But if she had, and she'd signed that form agreeing to arbitration... wtf? Was she signing away her rights? Or her brain? Attorney Thomas Lenz clues us in on arbitration, mediation, and why it might be easier to just have a tumor. Also, Ken LeZebnik's America takes us to scenic Cape Cod. And we send out an APB for listeners who might have access to the Paula Poundstone reference in the Mediterranean Journal of Hematology and Infectious Diseases. Oh, and also: Theme songs!

What’s this thing? Is this thing a thing? And will sunblock help? Or am I better off getting a chemical peel and looking GREAT to the end? Dr. Ilya Reyter of the American Skin Institute answers all our epidermal questions. Also, Paula and Adam see if they can “cheese their hunger away.” And we take our maiden voyage into Ken LeZebnik’s America.

On our 50th (yes, 50th!) episode, we welcome Penn Jillette to help us figure out if Paula & Adam can have the same longevity as Penn & Teller. How have they made that relationship last for 40 years? Does it help that only one of them talks? Because that does NOT seem to be an option in our case. Also— Paula makes it into a medical journal, we’re hot in Panama, and we reveal the results of the Toni Anita Hull/Bonnie “Captain Crinkle” Burns Laugh-Off!
