Episode 65 – Things (Other Than People) That Broke Your Heart

Way back in Episode 10 of this show (Editor’s Note: Yipes), we took a look at Video Games That Broke Your Heart. With more than a year of soul-crushing moments under our belts, we felt it was only right to expand this topic to include pretty much anything that has destroyed your spirit.

So why “things” and not “people?” Partially it’s because no one wants to hear about the girl who stood you up at your junior prom (Editor’s Note: THANKS A LOT DIANA!). But also because having a person break your heart at least gives you direct your anger toward. When it’s a thing or an event, it’s a lot tougher to make yourself feel better by assigning blame.

Except for this past Presidential Election. Plenty of blame to go around there.

Episode 64 – Satisfying Sounds

You know what is music to your ears? Music. But also an incredibly satisfying sound! Whether is the crackling of the fire on a cold winter day or the swish of a basketball going through the hoop, we all have sounds that make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Is our podcast on your Rushmore of Satisfying Sounds? Probably not! But we think you’ll enjoy us talking about some of our favorite sounds just the same.

Episode 63 – Grandmothers

There might be some controversy to the theory that having grandmothers as part of a family is why humans live longer than apes. But there’s no controversy about the statement that grandmothers are great. (Even if they aren’t “great grandmothers.” Which doesn’t mean they aren’t great…look, you get the point.)

This week we look at the Rushmore of Grandmas – real and fictional. Just not Richard, Michael or Jeff’s grandmothers, since that would be cheating. Some of these grandmothers are warm and caring. Others are foul and crass. But one thing they have in common is love. And being a lot older than us.

Episode 62 – Time Travel Devices (with guest Paul Lurie)

When it comes to a road trip, sometimes it’s less about the destination and more about how you get there. But is this also true when it comes to time travel devices? Sure, you could just go into a plain room like in “12 Monkeys,” but where’s the sense of style with that? Let’s face it, driving a Delorean is cooler than going back to 1955 and having your mom try to get into your Calvin Kleins.

We explore the Rushmore of Time Travel Devices with the help of our good friend Paul Lurie, who suggested the topic. He is one of the best Duck Boat drivers in Boston, which means he knows a thing or two about cool forms of transportation. As far as we know, the Duck Boats aren’t time travel devices, though. Yet.

So join us for an episode that was prerecorded, which means it’s basically a time travel device right there. (And definitely not as cool as a Delorean.)
