| 1 comment

Ross and Carrie giggle for three days straight when they join the delightfully odd world of laughter yoga. Accompany them to a gibberish party, a laughter yoga phone meeting, and a laughter yoga concert. Extra points to anyone who can get through 10 minutes without giggling.

The Flop House: Episode #164 - 300: Rise of an Empire

The Flop House

Thus we enter November, the month known for having “No” theme. And, appropriately, we watched one of the most generic of modern action sequels, 300: Rise of an Empire. Meanwhile, Elliott lectures on Noid avoidance, Dan makes a public apology relating to one type of music and attacks another, and Stu makes an exciting announcement for enjoyers of comical books.

One Bad Mother
John Hodgman

On a very special Halloween episode of One Bad Mother, we talk zombie-apocalypse-readiness! (...A.K.A. emergency preparedness!) Clearly, we are prepared to have a three-day-supply of water and eat people. Theresa solves bedwetting forever and Biz spins a genius moment out of anything that will spin. Plus, we summon the ghost of John Hodgman to judge us as moms, only to discover that the real monster is the creator of baby food puree pouches!

TS157: Halloween, Party Stores, Lady Bishops & Louie Gohmert

Throwing Shade
Happy Halloqueen! This year, Erin and Bryan are giving you three looks - classic Halloween realness, True Detective realness and Gone Girl realness. But that's not nearly as spooky as how the Vatican feels about female bishops or how Republican Congressman from Texas Louie Gohmert feels about gays. Spooky!
