When the Entrepreneur pulls off the road to help a broken down Romulan ship, Geordi and Ro go missing. Now Data has to plan a funeral, and really only talks at length about that with Worf. How many breadboxes does one ship need? Who has the best orange wedges between the transporter chief, the helmsperson, and the backup doctor? Have Doctor Crusher and Geordi ever hung out? What’s the right karaoke song to whip out at a friend’s funeral? It’s an episode with headcanon we had to practice for with a toothbrush.

My Brother My Brother and Me on their SeeSo show of the same name

This week guest host Linda Holmes talks with Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy, the hilarious three brothers behind the comedy advice podcast My Brother, My Brother and Me. Recently, the brothers became the creators and stars of their very own TV series by the same name on the Seeso streaming network.

The McElroys tell Linda why it was important to them to film their new show in Huntington, West Virginia, where they grew up. They dish on the common misconceptions of their hometown, and what it was like to rope fellow Huntingtonians, including the mayor, into their antics.

The McElroys’ irreverent yet humane sense of humor has won them a following of very passionate fans, especially online. There’s even a McElroy wiki that catalogues the many callbacks and gags that have appeared in their comedy over the years, not to mention the brothers’ other shows with spouses, family members, and friends.

The McElroys tell Linda about how growing up in the same household shaped their comic sensibilities -- and how even after all these years, they’re still trying to make each other laugh.

All episodes of My Brother, My Brother and Me are now available to stream on Seeso. A free episode is available here.

Gina Prince-Bythewood on her new Fox miniseries Shots Fired

Gina Prince-Bythewood is a producer and writer who is probably best known for her 2000 movie Love and Basketball. Raised in Pacific Grove, California Gina moved down to Los Angeles to attend UCLA, graduating from the film school with honors. Gina has directed many movies since her 2000 breakthrough, films such as The Secret Life of Bee's and Beyond The Lights.

Her new project called Shots Fired, created with her husband Reggie Rock Bythewood, was a film idea turned mini series dealing with issues of race inequality and police corruption and violence against the black community. The murders of unarmed black men and women at the hands of white police officers and in particular the acquittal of George Zimmerman from the murder of Trayvon Martin were the catalyst for this project.

Gina tells Linda how rejection has influenced her work ethic, why she thinks it's important to represent diverse experiences and casts, and why she think Love and Basketball is cherished by so many people.

You can watch Shots Fired on Fox every Wednesday at 8/7c.

MaxFunDrive 2017: WEEK TWO IS ON!


As the second week of the 2017 MaxFunDrive dawns (on the West Coast of the US, at least), we're sitting at 14,710 new and upgrading members, which is wild - thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has already contributed! Here's a few quick things to keep in mind as you're gearing up for your week:

Or W2:D1BC for short (This is the year of acronyms. What can we say?). A generous MaxFunster who has been a listener from the very beginning (since Jesse and Jordan started putting The Sound Of Young America out on a podcast feed!) has issued a special challenge, for today only. He's pledged $2.50 for each new and upgrading member who acts today, up to 800 members! The count starts at 12:30 PM PT and ends at 11:59 PM PT. It's an extra special day to become a MaxFun member - if you've been on the fence, come on down and join! And thank you, generous mystery MaxFunster!

Make a new friend (or several) at your local MaxFun meetup! These listener-hosted gatherings are happening all around the world tomorrow, March 28th at 7:00 PM local time. To find your local meetup, just check out this page. If your area isn't represented, there's still time to make it on to the list! Just pick a place, email, and she'll help you out.

The chicanery continues as The Greatest Generation's Benjamin Ahr Harrison showed up at listener Vanessa's home with a big ol' bouquet of flowers and a heart full of GRATITUDE. We wish we could do the same for every single one of you, but until transporters and replicators are real, we have to settle with the members in these videos as an audience surrogate.

This Friday, at 7:00 PM PDT, we'll be ending the 2017 MaxFunDrive in a grand and festive fashion: with a livestream of some of our favorite LA-based MaxFun shows! Set yourself a calendar reminder, and check for details once Friday rolls around, because you won't want to miss this!

Y:L@TA2:L@TGCW/OY is still up in the air! Help us get to 20,000 and upgrading members, and we'll pull off the greatest podcast experiment of all time: a live podcast taping at The Grand Canyon. I've been there, and it delivers. Can you imagine how amazing it would be with PODCASTING? Help us reach our stretch goal, and elevate podcasting to the art form we always knew it could be by
