Hello my sweetest honey bunny money! Happy Summer! Did you know that the female Supreme Court justices are 3 times more likely to be interrupted than their male colleagues? Believe it. Also, a brave Mormon girl comes out in front of her congregation and is shut down by adult men with bad wigs. And finally, Fast Company pop culture editor Joe Berkowitz takes us through his new book AWAY WITH WORDS and the dark world of pun competitions. Now that's what I call purrrfect. Is that a pun?

Judge John Hodgman Episode 318: Innjustice

| 0 comments

Luke brings the case against his fiancée, Quay. They are planning their destination wedding and have a limited number of on-site cabins available. Luke would like to split the cabins 50-50. But, Quay says they should be allocated proportionally, so the two of them have an equal percentage of guests in off-site hotels. Who’s right? Who’s wrong?

Judge Hodgman's newest book Vacationland is available for pre-order at bit.ly/painfulbeaches.

When Beverly loses her job as Chief Medical Officer, Guinan can feel the storm coming in her joints. The Doctor proceeds to Rashomon the story of her dismissal to the mysterious bartender, in one of the most peculiarly structured episodes yet. Did Dr. Crusher start getting into subspace to be close to her son? Did the Vulcan Science Academy get woke? Can hats violate the laws of physics? It’s the episode where we fall in love with a dreamy police detective.

How deep is too deep to bow? Is that a Cardassian pillow? It’s the episode you can think of in a pinch, to keep you in the game.

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa wonder if there is a person in the family who everything revolves around and if it is us, why do we keep getting hit by all those things in orbit? Does the family seem to revolve around one kid or does the focus tend to shift? Is this good, bad, or just another question there is no answer to? Plus Biz is happy about something, Theresa is losing her mind and we talk to Tae Won Yu about his awesome new book My First Baby Signs.

This week Bryan shares the importance of rehearsed speeches while Erin shares about the Arizona jaywalking epidemic. Also, Theresa May may have lost her Conservative party hold but she’s still sticking around to try and bulldoze through more social safety nets, and the Trump administration still has yet to acknowledge LGBT Pride Month but manages to talk about literally anything else.  Plus guest Dave Holmes is here to discuss Cher’s reggae medley, cheese-themed rating scales, and his book Party of One: A Memoir in 21 Songs.

The Greatest Generation Ep 145: You’ll Know We’ve Reached the Bottom (S6E20)

| 0 comments

When Picard’s archaeology mentor comes aboard bearing gifts, it gives him a bad case of career FOMO. And when the professor wraps his Previa around a tree, the captain feels compelled to use it as an excuse to avoid a potentially perilous conference. Is TNG the secret source of contemporary baby names? Did that Cardassian bridge go up someone’s nose? Why didn’t they ever explain why that ship asplode? Can we get through a plot about the theory of panspermia without making puerile jokes? It’s the episode where Adam really commits to his tentacle fetish.
