My Brother, My Brother and Me 85: Candlenights 2011 Special

| 2 comments

It's our second annual Candlenights special, and you know that means! Actually, you might not, since it's only the second time we've done it. Oh, well, it means that we go the whole episode without dropping any profane language, so you can share it with the innocent, nubile ears of your family. Also, you shouldn't say "nubile ears" in front of them, because that's kind of profane.

Suggested talking points: Raspberry Pillow, The Long Con, Santa Baby, Trampires, 1 P.E., Christmas Conspiracy, Forever Lazy, Mistlesmooch, Measure Your Year in Gifts, The Briefness, Unwanted Twilight, Cat Buglary

Judge John Hodgman Episode 46: The Clap Trap

| 0 comments

Dueling banjos! Or at least, a banjo and bandleader. Greg and Eric bring a question of performance before the Judge. Eric is in favor of suggesting that the audience clap along to their music, to enhance the experience and the music itself. Greg claims it's uncool and uncalled for as an imposition to the listeners. Who is right, and who is wrong? Listen in and feel free to clap along!
