Hello babies!

Emily is on tour, if you live somewhere in the US check if she’s coming to your town soon! Maybe she’ll even autograph a zine for you? Lisa is on hiatus from work so she has taken up weaving. On Chunch Chat, there is still no new Chunch news. We are suffering from the throes of Chunch withdrawal and no basket house or peafowl will feed our need. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Office Assistant,” better known as the infamous Clippy from Microsoft Office. We welcome Amy Aniobi, who shares the beautiful story of her parents’ semi-arranged marriage. I promise it is very sweet and will remind you how love is something you have to work at. On Expert Hour, we are joined by Dirke Foote, a resident of Florida.

G’day, babies!

Emily is back from Australia, and she is very disappointed by a missed connection with a koala. Lisa teaches us about “the danger triangle,” which is an area on your face and not a large part of the Atlantic ocean, as I’d assumed. On Chunch Chat, we are itching for a Chunch fix, as Martha has been fowl-focused as of late. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Dirty Blues,” which “encompasses forms of blues music that deal with socially taboo subjects, including sexual acts and/or references to drug use of some kind.” If you thought Lil Wayne’s music was vulgar, you should check out what Lil Johnson was singing in the 1930’s. We welcome Jen Statsky to discuss trypophobia, the fear of small holes. Don’t Google it if you think you might suffer from it. Pretty creepy images await if you do. On Expert Hour, we are joined by Bey Stevens, an early childhood educator who happens to be in her late childhood.

Hello babies!

Special greetings to our babies down under! Emily is performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival this week. She will be telling jokes with that American accent she is known for.

This is the first episode we’ve recorded since having our conversation about ADHD recently, and we touch on how our feelings have and haven’t changed since. On Chunch Chat, there is no new Ban Chunch news, but we do learn about Martha Stewart’s new pussy willow grove. We are amused by Martha’s silvery gray catkins. We also learn about her “basket house,” a house that was built to store her basket collection. On WIki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Highgate Vampire,” a media sensation surrounding reports of supposed supernatural activity at Highgate Cemetery in London in the 1970’s. We welcome Siobhan Thompson, who joins us to teach us about Boudica, queen of a first century AD Celtic tribe who defended against the occupying forces of the Romans. On Expert Hour, we are joined by Werner Herzog, who has recently become an expert in 90’s alternative rock lyrics.

It’s MaxFunDrive 2017- go to Maximumfun.org and help support the Babies and all your other favorite shows! Check out the Baby Geniuses themed gifts! I want a Baby Geniuses butt pin really badly!!

We’re traveling a lot this month which has us wondering - how do you pronounce this dang place? Do you make an effort to do as the locals do? When in Rome, say Roma? Or does “Paris” rhyme with “heiress” to you? Emily finally got around to seeing A Dog’s Purpose. On the subject of gut wrenchingly bad movies, we respond to feedback we received about our La La Land opinions. On Chunch Chat, Martha adds some colorfully named fowl to the coop. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Concealed Shoes,” or shoes that are hidden inside buildings while they are being constructed. We welcome Jackie Kashian, who is not ashamed to tell us about her love of Romance Novels.

Fill us in if you know! How much should you give to charity? (Boy) Friend of the show Adam says you should give as much as makes you a little uncomfortable. Maybe get a little uncomfy with us? Speaking of uncomfy, we touch on a very personal topic. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Shrek (Sheep),” a sheep who evaded being shorn for six years.

Hello babies!

How are your New Year’s resolutions holding up? Still staying off social media? We hope so! Feeling like you need to do something? We have some tips for people in blue states/districts who don’t feel like they can do anything. On Chunch Chat, WE HAVE NEW BANCHUNCH NEWS! We have a new Banchunch pic! Martha has blessed us with a sighting of our favorite Fell pony. On Wiki of the Week, we read the page for “Telling the Bees,” a traditional European custom in which bees would be told of important events in their keepers’ lives. Bees get really mad when they’re not updated. We welcome Jack Moore, who tells us an INSANE story about his time spent as an Uber/Lyft driver.

Hello babies!

Welcome to the other side of the looking glass! We’re discussing how our lives have changed post-inauguration. We’re not on social media a lot, so if you’ve tried to slide into our mentions we might have missed you. We’re wasting less time on Twitter, but that time is well spent thinking about how La La Land is so terrible. On Chunch Chat, Martha Stewart has been quite withholding of Chunch news. Alternatively, Lady Gaga was recently spotted riding her Arabian mare Bailey Ann. On Wiki of the Week, we read the page for “Gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the Coral Sea Islands,” or The Gay Kingdom of the Coral Sea. I want to go to there! We welcome Matt Braunger, who we talk with about his cousin’s book The Disaster Artist. Required reading for fans of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. On Expert Hour, millennial funeral curator Hunter Barry joins us to talk about the business of being remembered.

Hello babies!

We did it. We actually did it. We lived through 2016. I know it is hard to believe but you are stronger and better for it. You deserve to pamper yourself. Maybe treat yourself to one of the many wonderful products dedicated to making your bathroom experience (read: pooping) better? You could also consider making or buying a really great sandwich. On Chunch Chat, Martha gives us an update on her Sicilian donkeys Rufus, Clive, and Billy. On Wiki of the Week, we read the page for “Melon heads,” the name given to legendary beings and urban legends in parts of Michigan, Ohio, and Connecticut generally described as small humanoids with bulbous heads, theorized in the 1970s, who occasionally emerge from hiding places to attack people. We welcome Kurt Braunohler, who tells us about Neural Nets, which are networked computers that are now talking to each other and we don’t know what they’re saying. SCARY!

Or maybe they turned your old room into some sort of multi use office situation and now you’re sleeping on a pull out couch bed? Either way, you’re sleeping in your own bed tonight and that always feels great. On Chunch Chat, Martha must have learned a trick from her friend Snoop Dogg because she’s doing a lot of wrapping! On Wiki of the Week, we read the page for Gef, also known as the Talking Mongoose or Dalby Spook. Nothing I respect more than the integrity required to take a lifelong hoax to the grave with you! We welcome Aparna Nancherla to the show to discuss her history selling Cutco knives. They’re actually great knives!

Turning to bad news, the final episode of Great British Bakeoff with the classic cast is airing soon. We’re coping by literally sticking our feet in bags of acid. We’re doing everything we can to boost our Wikifeet.com ratings. On Wiki of the Week, we tackle the wikipedia page for “Responses to Sneezing.” Bless you!

This is our first episode recorded post-election. Welcome to the new world! We unpack some of our feelings regarding this hellscape. On Chunch Chat, we’re experience a Chunch news drought. We talk Martha’s new show, in which she offers some wisdom about prison and being struck by lightning. On Wiki of the Week, we discover the page for Candle Salad. It’s a really funny looking salad - Look up a picture. We forgo our traditional Expert Hour segment for an interview with non fictional experts. Cynthia Sanchez is an organizer who works for PICO, who organizes around immigration, homelessness, youth, district elections and voter engagement. Katt Hoban is a former youth worker, community organizer, and occupier who studies social movements in the sociology PhD program at UC Irvine.

On Chunch Chat, we’re hopefully so close to getting a Chunch update! We skewer take on the bots who hang out in Martha’s blog comments section. On Wiki of the Week, we cover a condition called Penis Captivus, which doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. Jenny Zigrino joins us to talk about the various religious camps she attended as a child. We thought we booked Julian Assange of Wikileaks fame, but we made a simple mistake. Shoelean Assange joins us to talk about his website Wikifeet.com.

We look into The Great British Bakeoff’s winning recipe, and the main ingredient is humility. Related: anyone else think Paul Hollywood is kinda hot? On Chunch Chat, Lisa goes horse shopping. One of these horses does a fun fast food related trick that helps you aquire hamburgers. On Wiki of the Week, we learn how the phrase “hair of the dog” originated. It’s less about booze and more about actually putting dog hair on your bites. Nate Fernald joins us to talk about his secret love of G.I. Joe and it’s wacky, under appreciated storyline.

In Chunch Chat, we take it all the way to the patent office to discuss if Martha Stewart legally has the rights to her horse’s name. Let us know if you see any unlicensed Chunch products at Zara this summer! In Wiki of the Week, we talk about a touchy subject. All horses are winners in our eyes, but today we’re talking about one that’s a complete loser. That is to say, a horse who has never won a race.

Hello Babies! It's so good to be back! It's a new year and we've been traveling, but you were never far from our hearts. That said, we spent most of our traveling time wondering if we've been sitting on toilets wrong... Also, some birds sat on Lisa's head! In Chunch Chat, Lady Gaga got a horse as a present! Then, Lisa asks about boners and Emily asks the most boring question in BG history! In Wiki of the Week, gather round and hear the legend of the flaming goat! Every year in Sweden, a giant goat is built to celebrate Christmas! Shortly after, vandals and arsonists burn it to the ground. Like, EVERY YEAR. OVER AND OVER. Then, guest Whitmer Thomas tells us about his lifetime filled with injuries, some permanent! He also recently met childhood hero mark Hoppus! Finally, 11 year old expert Franklin Stafford runs us through all the things he can be an expert on for money!
