Good news, Bryan settled his insane electric bill and is now only slightly overpaying like the rest of us! This week, Republicans are sticking to the their principals that public bathrooms are the safest, cleanest places in the world and must be protected from the transgender community! Also Ingrid Nelson asks Obama why tampons are considered luxury goods. Last time we checked getting blood all over our new Egyptian cotton sheets wasn’t considered a privilege!

MBMBaM 286: Coyotes Ate Our Dad


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

TS217: David Bowie,Golden Globes,Worst Dressed Lists,Rubio,Special Guest Emma Rathbone

Throwing Shade

The world lost a trailblazing icon - the one and only David Bowie. Luckily it was (not at all) overshadowed by the Golden Globes! But who did you think was the ugliest? Erin looks into why we ask that horrible question at all. And then Bryan finds out what a stack heel is and how it relates to Marco Rubio. Fashion! Turn to the left. Fashion! Turn to the right. Plus we have the hilarious author and New Yorker contributor Emma Rathbone!
