Griffin and Rachel had a baby! But that's not the only bundle of joy being delivered this week! We have a very special episode recorded live at MaxFunCon East! Our adventurers have been through a lot together, but they don't always work so well together. Well, the BoB higher ups have noticed and they've decided to do something about it! So join the fellas (and a very special guest!) as they grow closer as coworkers and friends!
This week Bryan shares about the scam that is poison control, while Erin’s fur baby is back in town! Also some researchers in Austria have recently confirmed Imposter Syndrome as being harmful in the workplace, and the absolutely homophobic and horrible KT McFarland has just been appointed by Trump for a staff position. Plus, Guest Marc Andreyko is here to discuss the Napa Valley Train, women in comics, and his new graphic novel “Love is Love” to raise money for the victims, survivors, and loved ones of the Orlando Pulse shootings.
This is our 100th episode! In honor of this, Guy, Margaret (via skype), Oliver, and Wynter talk about pop culture families as a way of paying tribute to the Pop Rocket family that has formed over the past two years. Guy finds out which pop culture family the gang wishes they were a part of, and which TV and movie families represented their own. Then, they talk about the best pop culture families composed of friends (**Spoiler: Friends isn’t one of them). Then, as always, we find out what the panel’s current Jams are and what their individual pop culture obsessions are.
A very special shout out to all of the Rocketeers who have listened and made these 100 episodes possible! THANK YOU!
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

When the woman who unwittingly modeled for Geordi’s favorite real doll boards the ship, the Chief Engineer is scrambling to understand why she isn’t as receptive to his romantic overtures as her lookalike. To make matters worse, an alien pot pie has been tossed at the ship, and the crew is having a heck of a time cleaning it off. Why won’t the Captain ever let Worf raise the shields? What ever happened to that calzone? Is this whole thing Guinan’s fault? It’s the episode where TNG goes full MRA.

In another special late-night edition of the show, the sisters tackle a more serious topic: bullying. All three have many stories to share, many of them about bullies that were surprisingly thorough and dedicated to their bits. But don't worry, the sisters have moved on from those terrible middle school days and are ready to goof about them and hopefully help some of you who may be dealing with some bullies right now.
