Wham Bam Pow Ep. 65 - Mad Max

Show: 
Wham Bam Pow

This week, we try to come up with a Sharknado cash in, and we chat about the Australian dystopian flick that could be credited with (or blamed for) launching Mel Gibson's career, Mad Max.

Next week, we will be watching Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, which is currently available on Netflix Watch Instant.

Follow us on Twitter! Cameron is @cameronesposito, Rhea is @rheabutcher and Ricky is @rickycarmona. Discuss the show using the hashtag #WhamBamPow!

Judge John Hodgman Episode 174: Unreasonable Scorch and Leisure

| 4 comments
Guests: 
Monte Belmonte

Hear ye, hear ye! The court of the Honorable Judge John Hodgman will be on a short summer recess and return with new episodes starting Wednesday, September 10! In the meantime, check out Judge Hodgman's tourdates beginning September 5 and if you're in the New England area... Listen to this episode to learn how to meet Judge Hodgman, the Bananaman and Guest Bailiff Monte in the flesh!

Steffen brings the case against his dad, Brian. Steffen enjoys spending time with his family, but says too much of their "together" time is based around pool parties. Steffen doesn't care for swimming or laying out, and wants the family to do more indoor activities together. Brian says pool time is a great way for the family to bond.

Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.

Big thanks again to Joel Mann and community radio station WERU-FM in Blue Hill, Maine for hosting the Judge this summer!

Thanks to Michael Davidson Jr. for suggesting this week's title! To suggest a title for a future episode, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook. We regularly put a call for submissions.

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa explore the ways our consumption of news stories has changed since we've had kids. Hint: it's gotten kinda hard. Also, riding high from the first day of kindergarten and too much coffee, Biz experiences some beautiful moments of parenting clarity! Which we obviously indulge because -- let's face it -- clarity about parenting can be elusive as all hell. Plus, we find out how to make Theresa punch a kitchen cabinet!
