Episode 92 – Florida

When you think of Florida, you probably think of the most ridiculous news story imaginable, involving skeevy people with large criminal records but a small amount of teeth doing things like almost blowing up an ICU by trying to smoke crack or biting off a man’s ear because he wouldn’t give him a cigarette. (Both true stories.)

Florida is that, but also so much more. This week we discuss and debate the beautiful weirdness that makes Florida a state we love and perhaps sometimes would like to saw off the rest of the US ala Bugs Bunny.

And it’s Part One of our Mix-Up Episodes. This week it’s Michael and Jeff doing the debating, while Richard feels the immense power trip of judging and tries to legally marry Jeff to his cat.

Episode 91 – Guys in Drag

This Thanksgiving, celebrate a topic which is bound to generate more consensus around the dinner table with your questionable uncle… Wait! Whose side of the family is he from now?… than a certain spray-tanned, uncouth, scumbag of a president will: it’s the Mt. Rushmore of Guys in Drag.

This week we’re looking back to when movie soundtracks mattered. All the way back to…the early 2000s? Wait, that’s almost 20 years ago? Crap, we’re old. Agree or disagree with our picks? Let us know below.

Episode 89 – Bingeing

Some people say moderation is the key to life. Those people seem like real wet noodles. At the Mt. Rushmore Podcast, we have the self-control of a beagle puppy in a slipper factory. Why stop with “enough” of something when you can go straight on through to “making yourself physically ill?”

This week we’re making a Rushmore from things that we’ve binged – from food and drinks to things that we’ve done too much. After you’re done with this week’s episode, why not check out our archives and stuff your earholes with too much podcast goodness?
