Hello babies!

How great does food in cartoons look? What animated cuisine looks the most appetizing to you? Lisa tries shower belly, and it’s as hard as it sounds. We talk Emily’s favorite new tv show, which stars the polar opposite of Anthony Bourdain. In this very special edition of Chunch Chat, we talk Frederick the Great. He is considered to be the world’s most handsome horse. I wouldn’t kick him out of bed (unless this were some sort of Godfather horse head situation)! In Wiki of the Week, we talk about the analgesic effects of swearing. Gonzalo Cordova joins us to teach us about his favorite actress, Barbara Stanwyck. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne graces us with his presence to discuss the art of acting.

But when Data decides to turn the sensors on high, the results interrupt Captain Picard's private "chaps time." Is Worf in a death cult? Where can our listeners send their corrections? Can't Picard do better than a Continental breakfast for his meetings? It's the episode with a very special WiFi password!
