Comedian and podcaster Rhea Butcher joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of skateboarding, Taco Bell, organizing remotes, and everyone eats some european candy sent in by a listener.
We're back this week with a look at one of the most anticipated flicks of the year, Star Trek Into Darkness. Plus, Ricky leads a discussion about spoilers, and we decide how we feel about them.
Biz and Theresa speak with author Anne Kreamer about the science of emotions in the workplace and what happens to our brains after having a baby. And we decide that moms have SUPERBRAINS.

Sports! Paul brings the case against his friend Jeremy. Paul loves to wear his favorite baseball team's gear to games, even when that team isn't playing the game. Jeremy says that this practice is in bad taste. Who's right?

Hip hop blogger and Pitchfork columnist Andrew Noz joins us with a couple of his all-time favorite hip hop tracks. His first recommendation is Pacific Coast Remix by DJ Quik (featuring Ludacris), a track devoted to sunny Los Angeles's dark side. He also suggests checking out the 1983 track Beat Bop by Rammellzee and K-Rob. It's a song from an era where the uptown and downtown communities mingled in a way that the rap world would rarely see again.
Weird Al Yankovic is the undisputed king of parody music. Inspired by the novelty songs he heard on broadcasts of The Dr. Demento Show, Yankovic began writing his own comedy songs for the accordion -- starting with a love song to his parents' car, entitled Belvedere Cruisin'.
He sat down with us in 2011, before his album Alpocalypse was released. He talks about his food parodies (think "Eat It"), his special talent for rapping, and having an unusually long and successful career for a parodist (or musician of any kind).
Weird Al just kicked off a nationwide summer tour. He's also just released a new children's book, My New Teacher and Me. You can find more information .
Geoff Nunberg is a professor at UC Berkeley, the resident linguist of Fresh Air, and the author of Ascent of the A-Word: Assholism, the First Sixty Years. He talks to us about his studies into the word "asshole," which began life as a bit of slang used by WWII servicemen and has come to envelop the concept of modern incivility.
We spoke in 2012. The book is now out in paperback.
Jesse explains what makes David Letterman such an especially gifted late night host in a world of very good late night hosts.

Live, from MaxFunCon, it's My Brother, My Brother and Me's show-closing spectacular! Well, okay, it's not live anymore. It was live on Sunday. Now ... now it's dead, we guess?
Ya'll come back now, ya here? Wait, please stay! Erin is back from Houston, Bryan nearly survived a weekend of food attacks, some real dumb stuff went down in a Chicago cab, and Swiffer "accidently" pissed off everyone with Rosie the Riveter the Mopper. Listen to Bryan be absolutely startled by a doorbell announcing Mr. Special Shorts himself - the pop-lific and mansome Louis Virtel, who you know from everything plus thebacklot.com. Bye, Felicia!
