We are not reporting from the RNC- because that would be dangerous for us. We are still internationally recording, and James has a bird's eye view of all the crazy Republican politics, safely from Europe. Let's talk about the terrifying circus that is the Republican National Convention. Nnekay speaks about a hashtag near and dear to her heart #LoudBlackGirls, and it's celebration, and empowerment of Black women to be themselves. James is going to myth bust some gender and race stereotypes, and we need to have a very important conversation about white on white crime. This week's Quizlet Korner might actually be legit. Did Stevie Wonder go crazy at a concert? Is Grand Theft Auto taking place at a Pride Parade? Are Homosexuals lacing fireworks with chemtrails to turn everyone gay?! Find out!
Hello Internet! It's time for a very special episode! It's all questions and they're all your's! When should one cancel an RSVP? What to do when meeting an SO's family? What makes a good Work Thank You? Should you meet your neighbors? How do you discuss raises with your boss? All this, and more! Enjoy!
Justin and Dr. Sydnee are throwing a Boston Tea Party of our own as we explore the strange history of medical tea live from Boston's historic Wilbur Theater.
Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers
Hello there Cool Kid! Come in, come in! Don't just stand there in the door way! Have a seat and let's talk about what's going on in the world! Did you hear about the trouble that Leslie Jones has had on Twitter and the punishment the lead troll received? We have some info on the long lasting effect of the Ice Bucket Challenge of two years ago. Folks, there has been a whole lot of news coming out of the RNC! From usage of a Queen song, the collection of speakers and Melania Trump's perceived plagiarism, there's been a whole lot of buzz on the social medias! All that, plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy!
This week Erin finally tries out long nails only to find out they are like garden hoes and catch everything while Bryan teaches us the lifelong lesson that even if you save up for something, the money still goes away when you pay for it. Also male tennis players and business owners believe female tennis stars should be applauded for playing, but their hormones may get in the way of the game, and trash tabloid the National Enquirer accused Richard Simmons of transitioning just for click bait. Class acts.
Science journalist John Bohannon, who appeared on the nutrition episode of Adam Ruins Everything, joins us on this week's podcast!
John is fascinating - he's a contributing correspondent for Science magazine and has a Ph.D. in molecular biology from Oxford University. His experience in both academia and journalism has led to an inventive approach to exposing the flaws of science journalism and specifically nutrition journalism.
On the episode, John and Adam discuss John's fake chocolate study, his latest expose on Sci-Hub, and much more.
Biz and Theresa get down to the nitty-gritty of sibling bedroom-sharing: fighting, space-sharing, sleep schedules, and more! Biz is afraid to try it with her kids and Theresa knows no other way. Plus, Biz is cooking beautiful meals for her children to reject and Theresa has been whined at one too many times. And we get a wonderful and very informative visit from Gwen Glazer, Recommendations Librarian at New York Public Library and one of the hosts of The Librarian Is In podcast.

The Pop Rocket gang (well, most of them) went to go see the new Ghostbusters this weekend and are here to tell you all about it! Is Leslie Jones the next big movie star? How amazing is Kate McKinnon? Where was Rick Moranis in this whole thing? Margaret puts on her tin foil hat and discusses her theory about Kimye and Taylor's latest feud, Oliver talks about his latest DJ gig, Guy explains why Ghostbusters is getting so much criticism from certain internet communities, and Wynter closes with a Bustin' remix.
The search for the Song of the Summer still rages on, folks. Look for the official thread on the Pop Rocket Facebook group and send in your submissions.

When a cloaked observatory gets hit with a banger, the Enterprise needs to step on the gas to rescue some more gray haired scientists before the Prime Directive gets violated. On their arrival, the Enterprise crew just can’t help but violate it themselves, and violate it over and over. It should come as no surprise that this involves Riker going around the planet in a deep vee. Can Picard get out of this by making up a new religion? Did the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer wig get reused? Does Worf’s least favorite lightning have a great Hollywood agent? It’s the episode that Ben recorded while hopped up on DayQuil.
