Hello Babies! Thank you once again for joining us, we're so excited to see you! Join us as we discuss what kind of cult we'd like to be a part of, Lisa's appearance on NPR and the new show everyone is talking about "Neighbors"! Solomon Georgio talks with us about the Ganguro Girl fashion trend and 80's and 90's television. Do you all remember when they switched over the black and yellow Power Rangers? Expert Jacob Marley tells all about the Oscars and how to properly enjoy them. Grab a seat and stay awhile!

Hello Babies! This episode is jam-packed with some pretty heady concepts! Like what you ask? How about "butt-stamping"? That do anything for you? And yes, we do talk a lot about Scatman John in this episode, so don't worry! Sierra Teller Ornelas joins us to talk about a parasite that replaces a fish's tongue and it's just as cool/gross as it sounds! She then tells us all about Indian Art Markets and museum stories! Then, we're joined by expert Tabitha "Airmattress" Beacham who teaches us the art of Glamping! One last question: What is the sound of a fish scream?

Hello babies! On this episode, we sit down and chat all things pirate with comedian Karl Hess! We also have an eye opening conversation about BUTTS! Did you know that you can tell someone’s past/future just from looking at pictures of their butt? Well, Sylvester Stallone’s mom thinks so! We do not advocate sending pictures of your butt to Ms. Stallone. Just send them to us! Then we sit down with fantasy fiction writer Margie Donk! She teaches us a couple tools of the trade like setting thing a million years in the future and revealing things are powered by blood! She is also a huge fan of Dell computers it seems. Enjoy!
