Show: 
Wham Bam Pow

This week, the band is back together once again to review the shoestring budget, sci-fi flick The Machine; Rhea looks back at a movie that made her; and Cameron admits she doesn't get David Lynch (there's a pretty reasonable explanation for that).

Ricky recommends you visit harveyfriends.com and help out if you can.

Cameron's album is available RIGHT NOW on iTunes -- be sure to pick it up!

Next week, we will be watching Killing Them Softly, 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!

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Lisa Mourgess

Biz and Theresa wonder what you're supposed to do when you can’t take the time for yourself that everyone wants you to take unless you have the baby with you. Is it possible to have restorative time for ourselves...while we're with our babies? Plus, kissing in kindergarten, everyone is being a dick to mom, and we talk with Lisa Mourgess about parenting techniques, homeschooling, Down syndrome, and what it's like to have seven kids.

| 5 comments

Kelly brings the case against her boyfriend Ryan. Ryan wants to grow a beard, but Kelly thinks it's unsightly and uncomfortable for her. Should Ryan be allowed to grow his beard?

Thanks to Helen Mansfield for knocking it out of the park with 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.

WHERE CAN I SEE JUDGE HODGMAN AND BAILIFF JESSE IN REAL LIFE?

Great question! Judge Hodgman will be out on the road this fall, touring the Midwest and Northeast United States! Philadelphia! Chicago! Milwaukee! Akron! and more. Find a tourdate in your area here!

Or if you live in Los Angeles, come out for some fun at a Live Bullseye with Jesse Thorn show in a real, honest-to-God Masonic Temple at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Wednesday, October 15th.
