Judy files suit against her husband, Jayson, because he has stopped giving her Mother's Day cards. Jayson argues that she’s not his mother, so he shouldn’t be held responsible. Judy believes he should be setting a good example for their kids and would like to feel appreciated. Who's right? Who's wrong?
With Summertime Funtime Guest Bailiff Monte Belmonte!

SUBMITTED BY JAYSON:
Click here for an article on Mother's Day history. As Jayson says, “Not one word of wife, only a child honoring his/her mother. Plus, origins in Greek methodology and roman history similar to Saint Valentine’s Day, which now like Mother’s Day, should not be celebrated by Jews due to its pagan origins.”

It’s finally going to happen, people. Many songs enter, but only one jam can be crowned the Song of the Summer. Guy, Oliver, Margaret, and Wynter bring their picks and some suggestions from the Facebook group and discuss what really makes a summer jam. Writer and analyst Chris Molanphy comes in with hard data to see what is objectively the Song of the Summer. Sia, Calvin Harris, DNCE, Lizzo, and so many more are brought into the fight. Who wins? The answer may shock you.

With a fairly rowdy loop behind them, our heroes come face-to-face with divinity, and try their darndest not to make complete asses of themselves. With the Big Clock winding down and their prize in sight, can Tres Horny Boys save the day -- or, at least, one of the days? Merle goes deity shopping. Magnus takes a Chance. Taako lends a hand.
The dogs have turned on us! This week Erin is nursing a dog bite and all Bryan has is a joke to comfort her...friendship. Also the media coverage of the Rio Olympics has been a colossal disaster for the LGBTQ community and women. They're implying that gay men only watch the Olympics for the hot bods, and relentlessly remind us that women are vaginas first and athletes second. Plus comedian and TSPOD's new BFF Michelle Collins is here to talk about the trials and tribulations of shopping for shoes, Bachelor in Paradise and her favorite restaurant chains.
Jonathan sits down with evolutionary biologist Dr. Leryn Gorlitsky to discuss the many mass extinctions that have happened through Earth’s lifetime, why some species survive and why others die, and how humans are the primary cause of the ongoing mass extinction today.

The gang discuss good baby making songs, Harry Potter, time travel, and more! Plus, Margaret has some travel stories, Wynter mourns the death of Gawker, Oliver just can’t get enough Frank Ocean, and producer Christian just can’t take all the sex talk in the studio.
