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.

But after he starts to like the soup within his hallucination, everyone starts to wonder if their captain will ever regain consciousness. Where's the perineum, really? How do you stay looking busy during a workplace medical emergency? What's the best way to ask a houseguest to leave? It's the episode we're recording from the desert southwest!

The Flop House: Episode #228 - Collateral Beauty

The Flop House

We discuss Will Smith’s spiritual sequel to Seven Pounds, Collateral Beauty. Meanwhile, Stu unveils his hot new nickname, Elliott tries to get Keira Knightly’s attention, and the less said about Dan in this episode, the better.
