Throwing Shade

This week Bryan shares stories from his sister Caroline's visit, while Erin ventured into some casual Veganism. Also, according to a recent study women hold 2/3 of all student loan debt and because of the gender pay gap and Betsy DeVos it’s going to become even harder to pay them off. Plus, at the 43rd G7 summit the world leaders spouses took a group photo and Luxembourg's First Gentleman was failed to be acknowledged in the White Houses Facebook page.

Hello babies!

Emily has a fantasy about telling a skater off and shares a new piece of fan art inspired jewelry. Lisa is disgusted and intrigued by a stranger/new friend. On Chunch Chat, we are now months into a Chunch drought. We have some fun consolation Martha news. On Wiki of the Week, we read the WIkipedia Page for “Virgin Boy Egg,” a delicacy from Dongyang, China. These eggs are boiled in- you guessed it - boy urine! We welcome Megan Gailey, who is a lifetime fan of the Indianapolis Colts. On Expert Hour, we are joined by Ricky Martin, a freelance self driving car programmer with great practical experience.

Guy, Wynter, and Karen are once again joined by film critic Dave White to talk about medical dramas! How accurate was Doogie Howser? How is the Nurse's Ball on General Hospital a real thing? Was Scrubs secretly genius? Plus, Dave tells us why Getting On was such an important show in his life, Guy tries to defend DNCE again, Wynter is semi-confident she can become a doctor, and Karen reminds us why ER was worth watching even in the later seasons.

This week's episode had it all: The blossoming of new love, an adorable dog attending a dog party, a marriage-themed obstacle course, and, of course, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. It just methodically checks off all the elements required for a good episode of television.

The Greatest Generation Ep 141: He’s Not My Android (S6E16)

| 0 comments

When alien technology and indigestion trigger parallel daddy quests for Data and Worf, one goes fully suicidal while the other goes full Rambo. All this is set against a tense backdrop of Captain Picard doing some aqueduct diplomacy and Dr. Crusher doing something decidedly naughty in Quark’s holosuites. Is Deep Space 9 well-lubricated enough for that space butthole? Did Farmer Hoggett get horribly burned in a fire? Under what circumstances is it OK for Worf to go on an unsanctioned black ops mission behind enemy lines? It’s the episode with the seven stages of podcast preparation.
