Wham Bam Pow Ep. 90 - Robocop (1987)

Wham Bam Pow

Reviewing the Robocop reboot a couple of weeks ago left us craving the smooth flavor of the original, so we indulged this week. Plus, we figure out what Paul Feig's insistence on making movies WITH WOMEN comes from, and we examine 1987's biggest blockbusters.

It's the MaxFunDrive! Become a member or upgrade your existing membership NOW to support Wham Bam Pow and all of your other favorite Maximum Fun shows!

Next week is our live show! If you're going to be in the Los Angeles area, be sure you snag tickets! We'll be recording on Monday, March 23rd at 11 PM at UCB Franklin, and we'll be watching Total Recall (the 1990 version).

MaxFunDrive progress report: 1623 new and upgrading members!


Plush rocket by Xyloart

Goal completion: 1623/2000 new and upgrading members, 81% there!

As we approach the tail end of week one of the MaxFunDrive, there are no signs of us slowing down. We're currently at 1623 new and upgrading members, which brings us past last year's goal and leaves us with this year's target of 2000 new and upgrading members square in our sights.

Thank you so much to everyone who already stepped up this year. This is the biggest showing we've ever had, and we're incredibly honored!

If you haven't yet signed up or upgraded, you still have time! Why not take a moment and do it now? There are awesome gifts, and you'll feel amazing knowing you're directly supporting the artists you love.

And because the MaxFunDrive is all about surprises, we have one up our sleeve for you. Thanks to the generosity of longtime MaxFun supporter Rebecca O'Malley, we are thrilled to present you with a contest. If you're one of those people cranking out hilarious, insightful, or interesting Tweets on the reg, and you're miffed that you're never honored with a Peabody, this contest is for you. We'll be collecting the very best tweets that contain the #MaxFunDrive hashtag as well as a link to the donate page. Jordan and Jesse will pick their favorite at the live show on the 27th, and the winner gets free registration at MaxFunCon 2015, thanks to Rebecca. Comedy, culture, food, fellowship, and parties in the mountains above Los Angeles -- what could be better?

So help us spread the word about the drive, and maybe earn yourself a ticket to MaxFunCon in the process! Good luck, and thank you again for your awesome support!

Our heroes are sent out on their first mission as Reclaimers for the Bureau of Balance. Their initial task is an impossible one: Do they possess the competence required to be on time for a train? The answer may surprise you, but — no, actually, it probably won’t.

One Bad Mother Episode 97: In-Laws, with guest Dr. Ruth Nemzoff

One Bad Mother
Dr. Ruth Nemzoff

Biz and Theresa finally go there and talk about in-laws, oh my! Before we put our foot too far in our mouths we get insight into many of the issues created by joining families with Dr. Ruth Nemzoff, author of Don’t Roll Your Eyes: Making In-Laws into Family. Plus, we bust out some epic listener calls, including a working mom's video conference call that goes terribly wrong and a mom whose baby would probably sleep through the night if it weren't for dad's extraordinarily loud peeing!
