Hello babies!

Got your emergency go bags ready? We recorded this before the election and hope that this still brings you some joy in these uncertain times. On Chunch Chat, we’re hopefully so close to getting a Chunch update! We skewer take on the bots who hang out in Martha’s blog comments section. On Wiki of the Week, we cover a condition called Penis Captivus, which doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. Jenny Zigrino joins us to talk about the various religious camps she attended as a child. We thought we booked Julian Assange of Wikileaks fame, but we made a simple mistake. Shoelean Assange joins us to talk about his website Wikifeet.com.

NOTE: If you need a safe place to share/vent/scream through your keyboard, feel free to email us at babygeniusespodcast@gmail.com or reach out on our Facebook group.

| 0 comments

When a Vulcan diplomat needs a ride into Romulan space, the Enterprise is her UberXL (if only to transport her giant Pope hat). Meanwhile, people are doing things that they think will make Chief O'Brien happy, with disastrous consequences. Is O'Brien in an arranged marriage? Is it hard to stay together when your ship is named "Divorce"? Does Data have "Incognito Mode"? It's the Nebuchadnezzar of bottle episodes!

Minority Korner

We are here for you Korner Kids. Let's unpack this election. James was there at ground zero of what everyone thought would be the official celebratory election party of America's first female President. We walk through what happened, from voter turnout, to the reality of America. Most importantly we are going to get you FIRED. UP! Now is the time for action, and we've got some ideas, and reasons to be hopeful. Minority Korner the movement has just begun! In honor of Veteran's day we have two segments. First up Nnekay explores the involvement of Native Americans in WWII- and we have a lot to thank them for. Next James explores the history of Black folks in American wars, spoiler alert we've been fighting for America long before it was even America. Then it's our first ever "Ask Minority Korner Anything" we have a question! We explore escapism, sci fi, and fantasy and how it can be used for good like fighting oppression. All this and more!

As the world turns, we may as well keep enjoying wrestling.

This week, the team discusses live-audiences “hijacking” WWE TV. When is it acceptable? And when does it just get in the way of how good the product can be?

Plus: Tons of stories are being built towards Survivor Series. We’ll take a look at Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, the cruiserweight division and anyone else who will be involved in WWE’s only Sunday show in November.

And comedian and newly minted author Asterios Kokkinos joins the show to tell us about his special wrestler: Daniel Bryan.

Asterios has a new book out: Toys 4 Cheap Catalog: The Magic of Toys Will Shut Up Your Child.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The three count:

Danielle put over Sasha Banks and Bayley as her OTP.

Mike put over Kurt Angle on The Steve Austin Show podcast.

Hal put over The magic that is the big bad booty daddy, Scott Steiner.

If you wanna talk about more wrestling throughout the week be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.

You've heard of the "'tween" years, but Biz and Theresa think there's another awkward in-between time that comes earlier and doesn't get as much attention. Those years after infancy but before total kid autonomy...Why didn’t anyone tell us they would be a little repetitive and boring…I mean magical in their own unique way? Plus Biz starts camp early, Theresa stops getting out of her chair and we talk to Seattle based writer Ijeoma Oluo about embracing being wrong.
