Okay, so, let's get conceptual for a bit. This episode, which we're releasing in Justin's absence, is our annual holiday live show, which we recorded in the decidedly non-holiday month of September, and are releasing in the absolutely non-holiday month of March. It was also the live show featured in the MBMBaM TV show! We hope you like it.

Suggested talking points: All the Carols, The Worst Day of Griffin's Life, Gift Card Etiquette, Sexy Santa, Museum Regifting, Munch, Sad Libs, Dolls, My Big Ball, Christmas Nicknames, Justin's Goof-Up

The Greatest Generation Ep 116: The Husk Shot is Verboten (S5E17)

| 0 comments

When the Entrepreneur finds an area of space that does not conform with the crew's preconceptions, they aren't sure which pronouns to use to describe it. They face a similar challenge addressing a race of people inhabiting a nearby planet, which inspires Commander Riker to employ some Pea Soup diplomacy. Can we finally be funny about a serious story? How do you get stink off of a main character? What color is Worf's boogie board? It's the episode that features a brand new Previa!

Ross and Carrie Await the End Times (Part 2): Saturday Edition

| 0 comments

The end of the world is still coming, and it's never been so tedious. Join us as we attend several more talks from Amazing Facts, a lecture series that is much longer than advertised. Carrie is blown away by an entire talk devoted to what day of the week Christians should have worship, and Ross is declared the smartest man in the room for knowing the punchlines to corny jokes. Plus, evolution is wrong, Ross is a bad husband, Carrie confronts the pastor, and the group tips their hand about what church they're affiliated with.

Minority Korner 70: We See You Oscars... and We Need to Talk (Political and Commercials of the Oscars, Who Are Actually Winning Awards, Campbell Soup, Paula Abdul, Denzel Washington, Bill Paxton)

Minority Korner

Is it really Hooray for Hollywood in this episode of Minority Korner? Yes, James and Nnekay are celebrating the Oscars this week. But first, Why does James always default to the Jurrassic Park Theme? Was it a game changer?!Dive into James' experience filming Soup Meets Sandwich... and JUST how much James loves Campbell's Soup... whereas Nnekay just wants some of that sweet soup money. The duo ponder if starting late in a career is doable and grabs inspiration from Viola Davis, Morgan Freeman, and Julia Childs. ALSO who is this James Arthur singer chap trying to steal OUR James' steez, Nnekay wants to KNOW. We start things off with Nnekay's Korner, this week she's covering the various types of protest pins celebs were sporting, and some of the interesting political statements the commercials from New York Times, Audible, and GE made during the broadcast of the Oscars. In James' Korner he tackles if the oscars have truly moved on from #oscarssowhite. He also question the myth of the liberal media and if Hollywood's standards more open minded than what they portray themselves to be... hint... things aren't as rosy as we me all think. In honor of our new Tidbit Korner, here are some more tidbits from the episode: Bill Paxton, Kerry Washington, Moonlight, La La Land, Mc Scat Cat, Vera Wang and More! Enjoyyyyyyy!!!!!!!

A fond farewell.

I want to share a short, disappointing note. It's with a heavy heart that I write that Maximum Fun will no longer be producing new episodes of Getting Curious. We all love the show and love Jonathan, but after nearly a year and a half of effort, we've been unable to generate enough revenue with the show to cover production costs. Simply put, we couldn't see a path to self-sufficiency.

We'll be giving the show to Jonathan to do with as he sees fit in the future. In the meantime, the archive of shows will remain up.

I personally want to thank Jonathan for all he's brought to our community, and thank the producers who worked so hard to make the show a reality.

We've got plenty of irons in the fire, and you should expect more great new MaxFun shows in the near future. Thanks so much for supporting us. - Jesse
