Episode 31 – Hoaxes

You know the saying: fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, I’ll punch you in the nose. I think that’s right. Regardless, hoaxes have been around along as people have loved making other people look stupid. So, that is to say, forever. But some hoaxes are more memorable and creative than others.

Episode 30 – Best Actors (Seriously, Like Daniel Day-Lewis, and No Shitting Around)

The actor. A man or woman solely dedicated to their craft of taking the works of the world’s most talented playwrights and screenwriters and giving them life. Or, sometimes, they are happy to get a scene in a Fast & the Furious sequel with FIVE WHOLE LINES. Well, the hell with the Joe Schmo actors – we’re only talking about the best of the best.

This week, Richard and Michael try on the Masks of Comedy and Drama to explore the real – and we mean full on no fucking around – best actors ever. Meanwhile, Jeff plays “director”, which mainly means shouting things at us through an old-timey megaphone.

Episode 29 – Stupid Things People Do In Bar and Restaurants

There’s nothing worse than going to your favorite bar or restaurant and having your night ruined by some lout without a clue about the concept of civility. Some people simply can’t handle the basic manners required to eat anywhere but a Golden Corral, and even than they are probably cutting in line for the Chocolate Fondue Waterfall!

Richard, Michael and Jeff know about eating and drinking – they’ve been doing it their whole lives! This week they get together to discuss some of the rudest, most ignorant and just plain stupid things that customers do at bars and restaurants.

Episode 28 – Things About Baseball (That Aren’t Necessarily About the Game)

Baseball is our national pastime for a reason – there’s nothing that says summer in the USA like taking the family to game, getting some hot dogs, drinks and peanuts, and then taking out a second mortgage to pay for all of it.

But let’s be honest – as great as baseball is, some of the best things about going to a game aren’t necessarily about what happens on the diamond. There’s a lot of time to kill while watching a game, which means a lot of time to notice the little things that make baseball so unique.

Episode 27 – Desert Island Discs

Let’s be honest – if you brought four CDs with you on a deserted island, you’d probably use them for anything other than listening to music. You could sharpen the edges and use them as weapons to hunt birds or fish. Or shine them to reflect sunlight in hopes of catching the eye of a nearby boat or plane. Really, there are tons of uses for these things.

But, the trope is there for a reason. Music helps us to remember great things in our lives, or get us through tough periods. And being stuck on a deserted island is probably up there in terms of “tough periods”.

Michael, Richard and Jeff talk about the albums that shaped their lives and they would want to listen to again and again. So gather around the fire you’ve started using flint, rocks and seaweed and get ready to listen.
