Hello Babies! So, we're basically hammers because we NAILED this episode! We're talking about weird features in Emily's new house. We're talking about swag we've been sent. We're re-branding as Puffy Geniuses. This one is full of hits! Hey, can we talk for a second about how great Yoko Ono is? In Chunch Chat, we take it back to the beginning! Cartoonist and illustrator Emily Flake joins us for this week's Wiki: William Hale Thompson, one of the most unethical mayors in America's history! Then Emily Flake tells us all about her and Lisa's Bored To Death cameo, baby skin diseases and trying to explain to people what you do for a living! Finally, we're joined by Expert Shelby Shelton and learn all about Animal Therapy!

Hello Babies! It's so good to be back! It's a new year and we've been traveling, but you were never far from our hearts. That said, we spent most of our traveling time wondering if we've been sitting on toilets wrong... Also, some birds sat on Lisa's head! In Chunch Chat, Lady Gaga got a horse as a present! Then, Lisa asks about boners and Emily asks the most boring question in BG history! In Wiki of the Week, gather round and hear the legend of the flaming goat! Every year in Sweden, a giant goat is built to celebrate Christmas! Shortly after, vandals and arsonists burn it to the ground. Like, EVERY YEAR. OVER AND OVER. Then, guest Whitmer Thomas tells us about his lifetime filled with injuries, some permanent! He also recently met childhood hero mark Hoppus! Finally, 11 year old expert Franklin Stafford runs us through all the things he can be an expert on for money!

Hello Babies! Happy holidays to all! Emily has already received the best gift of all: A Palin sighting! Lisa also received a great gift: positive listener feedback! One On Fun asks the important question, which animal would you like to have super tiny on your body and grazing on your pubes? Joselyn Hughes (Writer/Performer, host of DIY, Dammit!) joins us for Wiki of the Week to discuss the remarkable historical bad ass that was Julie d'Aubigny. Then, Joselyn shares her experience seeing bands live, water skiing and eating alone! Finally, expert Michael Sauce-Cranberry teaches all how to "be cool". Thanks for stopping by!

Hello babies! On this episode, Taylor Swift fans are mad at Emily! And some of them are apparently really bad at trolling! Lisa recently gave a speech at XOXO that everyone should watch. In Chunch chat, Martha and Drew Barrymore seem to have beef. Hey, use your turn signal LA! Comedian Matt Ingebretson joins us to discuss the Wiki page for champion race horse and sire, PotOOOOOOOO (Potato). He also posits the theory that everyone knows what animal they would have sex with if it came down to it. He then tells us all about the behind the scenes of being in High School marching band. In Expert Hour, Sam Feynald teaches us the ins and outs of Yard Sales and "Fleas". He brings some of his favorite finds and they are... unique. All that and more for you to enjoy!

Hello Babies! We kick it off this week with an in-depth discussion as to how we would behave if we were famous celebrity mistresses. Spoiler, it involves silly hats and cod pieces. Then, we talk about which of the Beatles we think we are! We are all very upset at Lisa's car news and we picture Martha Stewart riding a horse naked to help soothe our nerves! We're joined by actress and funny person Claudia O'Doherty to discuss this week's Wiki page: Urine Therapy!
