My Brother, My Brother and Me

My Brother, My Brother and Me is an advicecast for the modern era featuring three real-life brothers: Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy. For roughly five-sixths of an hour each week, with new episodes dropping every Monday, the brothers McElroy will answer any query sent our way, each fielding questions falling into our respective areas of expertise. We operate like a streamlined, advice-generating machine. It’s both terrifying and humbling to behold.

If you’re in desperate need of a bit of advice, don’t be shy! Simply send an email to mbmbam@maximumfun.org, or post on twitter with the tag #MBMBaM and we’ll take care of that for you.

AWWWW DUNK. It's MaxFunDrive time! We're kicking off a two-week celebration of your generosity with this an episode that's just, like, chock-full of pandering. By which we mean we revive all of our classic bits, some of which were dead for very good reasons.

Suggested talking points: Haunted Doll Watch, Hat Stink, Quinoa Month, The Saddest Lib, Lil' Musky, Boogle, Mailroom Ghost, Dr. M'Crum, Truck Month, Regarding Marrying Sonic Characters

MBMBaM 293: Dark Ages Teen Life

| 0 comments

After a rocky, inscrutable start, this episode starts to tackle some heady subjects. Like, for instance, whether or not it's possible to cook and safely consume dorm furniture. Also, how sick it would be to kick it in the 11th century.

Bliss Delight returns to the studio after a few weeks spent traveling the Ethersphere and kicking it on Earth Jr. for a bit. We've only got about an hour of studio time before the next metamorphosis, so let's get this thing on wax.

MBMBaM 290: Kung Fu Panda 3 Watch

| 2 comments

Everybody said it would never happen -- that America hadn't done anything good enough to deserve a third installment in the Kung Fu Panda saga. And they're all right: We don' t deserve Kung Fu Panda 3, but we got it anyway. And because of this gift, we have something to talk about for the first ten minutes of our podcast.

Suggested talking points: Kung Fu Panda 3 Excitement, Ticket to Paradise, A Calm Response to Travis' Museum Nights Memories, Weightlifting Music, Three Dougs, Popeye's Eulogy, Three Serious Messages

Welcome, all, to our most fanciful episode yet! It's got everything: Extremely wrong-headed Super Bowl predictions, Travis' mushroom-tainted movie memories and a brief lesson on Mogwai rights. Come with us on a three-way mind voyage!

Suggested talking points: The Hug Heard Round the World, Mushroom Movie Editions, A Very Terrible Towel, Office Traps, Pirate Jeffcoats, Emu President

MBMBaM 288: Shuriken Dip

| 0 comments

We're glad that the subject matters addressed in this episode are coming at this point in our careers, because we're not sure we would have been equipped to handle them four years ago. Like: Sleep Jeans? SLEEP JEANS? JEANS FOR SLEEPING?

Suggested talking points: Football Pointers, Sleep Jeans, Tim McGraw's Krav Maga Returns, Accidental ASMR, Candy Stamps, Realtor Kisses, A Matter of Taxonomy

MBMBaM 287: Glistening Fishlifters

It's really hard for the three of us to get together and record a solid hour-or-so of comedy audio without our robotic assistants barging into the studio. We apologize for their automated, synthetic rudeness.

Suggested talking points: ASMR Prep, Ripped for Fish, Short Tongue, Sick Bob Ross Collabo, Popularity Resume, A Brief History of Andrew Johnson

MBMBaM 286: Coyotes Ate Our Dad

| 0 comments

Listen, it's our own fault, really. We teased that coyote with the promise of warmth and familial love, which are a coyote's two most favorite things. Feeding him that sweet 'ched probably didn't help things, either.

Suggested talking points: Bliss Delight, Get That Surprise, Meme Scene, Elderly Bank Robbery, Kyle: A Movie About Being a Good Dad and Good Human

MBMBaM 285: Home Alone 0: Blood in the Snow

| 6 comments

There's a lot more to the Home Alone series than slapstick home defense and Tim Curry's pronunciation of the word "pizza." Like, a lot more. Some dark stuff, too -- and it all exists within the confines of Justin's pseudo-canonical thriller fiction.
