Ross and Carrie's Purium Transformation (Part 1): Shakes and Pills Edition

| 0 comments

Ross and Carrie try to lose a few surplus pounds with the help of a multi-level marketing company called Purium. Armed with shakes made of sea garbage, they go on a ten-day diet to purify their bodies of (you guessed it) toxins. But first, they must both become vendors of the same product they're buying. It's almost like... a triangle... but a company. What do you call that? Anyway, find out who pukes up their spirulina in our adventure with Purium.

The Greatest Discovery Episode 0: A Nightmare to Produce

| 0 comments

When the world's most reluctant Star Trek podcasters announce their new show, The Greatest Discovery, one of them goes for a dick joke and can't quite stick the landing. Everybody knows the #GreatestGen is only good because of nostalgia, but what this new series presupposes is, maybe it isn't? What will the show schedule be? What are our hopes, fears and wants from the first new Trek series in over a decade? Where we are w/r/t Big Rod’s notorious pocket? It's the episode where we double down on the embarrassment.

MK97: Cuantos Licks? W/ Janine Brito

Minority Korner

Hola! We are coming to you from around the globe, as James is in Espana and being unapologetically Black overseas, while spreading the gospel about racism in America like a Paul Revere. James is also working like a bastard, why do they work so hard, training for the Avengers 10K, accidentally joining separatist protests, and making a crazy film that may bring in the Spanish new wave of film making. Meanwhile back in the states, Nnekay has fallen in love with a new dog, and her bitch Zelda might not be having it. Also, maybe British Black actors leading American biopics might not be such a bad idea in terms of overseas appeal, aka John Boyega in Detroit, has found a home in Espana. Then we go to the main event: Writer/Comedian (not Comedienne) Janine Brito! We discuss the haunted Poconos Manner, getting lost in the forest, what to do when your family voted for Trump, why you should turn off Reality TV and do something, what's it like to be a lesbian comedian in LA, and create an idea for embroidered pillows on the go! Also someone please call James' mother, and tell her that he is safe in Europe. All this and more!

This week, the team bids a fond farewell to the late great Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. He’ll always be remembered for his hilarious commentary, being a great bad guy… and that one time he wore a weasel suit.

Plus Bayley and Charlotte made their big returns to TV this week, both for very different reasons; But which one is best set up for success in the next few weeks?

And did Roman Reigns finally get a verbal win over John Cena before their big match at No Mercy? We’ll take a look and determine the final results

Main Event

WWE had a great chance to make a new star when they gave Jinder Mahal the WWE title earlier in the Summer. But from the beginning, his time at the top has been tinged with racism. It was bad enough when it was just Randy Orton saying this sort of stuff, but now Jinder is using outright offensive language against Shinsuke Nakamura. How bad is this beyond heel heat? We’ll explain.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Des Delgadillo.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Biz and Theresa wonder which is harder, having to be the more flexible person in the family with our work and personal needs, or adjusting our attitudes to be happy about it? How do we find the energy to adjust how we feel about it if we are always spending that energy being so freaking flexible!!? Which came first, the bitter chicken or the miserable egg? Maybe just talking it to death will help. Plus the walls are talking to Biz, Theresa made it and we talk to blogger and author Lee Wind about LGBTQ literature for young adults and children.

Check out Lee Wind's blog I'm Here. I'm Queer. What the hell do I read? for comprehensive lists of LGBTQ literature and follow him on Twitter @leewind.
