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!

Hello Babies! We don't know about you, but we are having a great day! Not only has Lisa adopted a whole new "post-massage" persona, but Bojack Horseman Season 2 is available now! Lisa has also found some notes from her childhood that basically prove that as a child, she could see the future. Also, Martha Stewart has a friend named Muffin and she made her muffins for her birthday! Speaking of Muffin, what would our names be if we we're born today? Comedian Chris Thayer joins us to discuss all the living and non-living things that have made their way over Niagara Falls! Chris also makes us all feel a little better about secretly enjoying Sublime. Expert Ficole Dyer explains how to improve your hiking experience and maybe even find love on the trails!

Hello babies! Hot-diggety-dog, do we have a good episode for you! Emily has an obsession with a Japanese cat game and Lisa got a massage! Lisa also watched a Periscope that involved a bee and a nostril. If you could have any exotic pet (without any of the negatives) what would it be? Comedian Allen Strickland-Williams joins us to learn about pre-mastication and take part in an impromptu Minions point/counterpoint in this week's Wiki of the Week. He's also distracted by a fly before telling us everything he knows about presidential elections and being a page at NBC LA. Expert Parker Kerry gives the straight scoop on frosting and icing, then tells all about his campaign for an elected position on a frosting forum! Enjoy!
