This week Bryan shares stories from his sister Caroline's visit, while Erin ventured into some casual Veganism. Also, according to a recent study women hold 2/3 of all student loan debt and because of the gender pay gap and Betsy DeVos it’s going to become even harder to pay them off. Plus, at the 43rd G7 summit the world leaders spouses took a group photo and Luxembourg's First Gentleman was failed to be acknowledged in the White Houses Facebook page.

The Greatest Generation Ep 141: He’s Not My Android (S6E16)

| 0 comments

When alien technology and indigestion trigger parallel daddy quests for Data and Worf, one goes fully suicidal while the other goes full Rambo. All this is set against a tense backdrop of Captain Picard doing some aqueduct diplomacy and Dr. Crusher doing something decidedly naughty in Quark’s holosuites. Is Deep Space 9 well-lubricated enough for that space butthole? Did Farmer Hoggett get horribly burned in a fire? Under what circumstances is it OK for Worf to go on an unsanctioned black ops mission behind enemy lines? It’s the episode with the seven stages of podcast preparation.

Carol Kane on her childhood, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and auditioning

Carol Kane is a veteran actress. She began her career in 1971 and landed some pretty heavy roles - one of her first films was in the Mike Nichols drama Carnal Knowledge. Later on, she'd work on other classics like Annie Hall and Dog Day Afternoon. She was even nominated for a best actress Oscar for her part in the 1975 film Hester Street.

She eventually found her home doing comedy, something she never expected she would do growing up. She appeared on Taxi as Simpka, the wife of Andy Kaufman's character on the show. She was in the Muppet Movie, The Princess Bride, Scrooged, and so many others. Her current project is Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt where she plays Lilian, Kimmy's landlord.

She and Jesse talk about her childhood, and the special school she went to that allowed actors time to audition. They also talk about many of her projects over her expansive career- The Princess Bride, Taxi, and of course Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Plus, she tells Jesse that after all of these years, she still gets nervous auditioning.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 in it's entirety is on Netflix now!

Chris Fairbanks live at MaxFunCon

Chris Fairbanks is a standup comedian, he's appeared on Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Comedy Central. Alongside April Richardson, he also hosts the tv show Almost Genius on TruTV. His standup is really unique. It is kind of improvised, really surreal, and contains lots of quick two line jokes.
Last year, we were lucky enough to host Chris at MaxFunCon, which is an annual gathering in the woods organized by Maximum Fun, and we've got a bit of his set from that show for you this week!

Check out Chris' album Fairbanks! which was released in 2010 and is an absolute classic. You can also still get tickets to MaxFunCon East which is happening this September in Pennsylvania.

The Greatest Generation Ep 140: The Bell Curve of Mountain to Armus (S6E15)

| 0 comments

When Captain Picard spills an awful lot of pasta sauce on the front of his uniform, the all-powerful Q gives him an opportunity to make out with his hot friend from college. Now he has to play a round of Would You Rather where the choice is a sword to the heart or having a boring joe job. Does Wolf 359 go in the Picard column or the Q column? Why all the impalements? What does Predator Hair Metal sound like? How can Marta be so comfortable as the last clapper? It’s the episode that needs a universal translator for the word ‘embarrassment.’

One Bad Mother Episode 206: Sibling Fighting Plus Keeping Our Cool Up Through The Teen Years

Biz and Theresa wonder if there's any benefit to all the fighting going on between our kids besides thinning out the herd. One part of our brain knows to let them learn to work it out, unless it gets violent, but the other part of our brain finds it hard not to step in when we get fed up listening to it. Plus, Biz has a dream and Theresa practices detachment parenting. We talk to author, therapist and mom Colleen O’Grady about raising teen daughters, but our conversation is relevant to so many stages of parenting, it is absolutely something for everyone -- not just parents of teenage girls!

Ding Dong the Witch is dead, goodbye Roger Ailes! This week Bryan found a new love in Disneyland fail videos,  while Erin lost her entire Sunday to “the Keepers” on Netflix. Also, Last Man Standing has been canceled by ABC and conservatives have gone crazy blaming “liberal Hollywood” for it. Plus, curious researchers in Cyprus believe after much research Lesbianism to be an evolutional phenomenon that has occurred only to create arousal in men.
