Episode 41: Hit It, Quit It, Flush It Away

Episode Notes

Even the noble art of recycling has its dark side, Citizens, and boy howdy, do Dave, Shaun, and Phil get to the revolting bottom of THAT truism this week: the news has offered up a rather dire and particularly stomach-turning warning to America’s lovers, and the fellas cover it with all the healthy maturity you’ve come to expect…plus they uncover cultural strangeness from around the world, revisit the butt-kicking grannies of Kenya, and try out a brand new game: Baby Blockers!

BUT FIRST! Dave is here with an all-new What Made Dave Angry This Week and the focus this time around is a double-whammy: home improvement AND arts & crafts fall under Dave’s withering, blistering rage…

AND, in Three for the Road, we’ve got dancing imbeciles, Phil hurting himself over Alex Jones, and missing mascots aplenty…AND MORE! Be safe, be smart, and for the sake of all that is good and decent in this world, RECYCLE RESPONSIBLY! We’re your one-stop shop for which garbage to just drop, we are…the WHIPAROUND!

EPISODE 40: Shocking Chakras, He’s NAKED!

Episode Notes

We’re back from the alternate timestream! Shaun’s trip to Germany is done, Dave’s wandered back to his computer and Jill is ready to rock. And OH BOY, have we got a case of weird news for you! This one’s sure to give you the willies. Or at least put you OFF willies for a good long time! A Massachusetts Yankee in a crowded New Hampshire gym opted for the au naturel yoga program. Unfortunately, no one OFFERED him said option, and with the police closing in, our buffoon in the buff had one of the strangest defenses ever offered. We’ve got all the hot takes you need, and even some (extremely) amateur legal analysis…

BUT FIRST! Jill, back after weeks of inaction returns with a Here’s the Thing all about…wait, really? Inappropriate pictures?! OH NO, IS THIS A THEME FOR THE WHOLE EPISODE??

AND later, in Three for the Road, we’ve got badly named babies, under-appreciated mummy juices, Japanese armpit ads, and almost CERTAINLY more phallic jokes than you can shake a gym membership at!

Stop your grinnin’ and for crying out loud, keep wearing your linen, here comes the WHIPAROUND!

EPISODE 39: The Fault Is In Our Rocks: With Guest Ryan Griffin

Episode Notes

Shaun and Phil are joined by educator and southern New Jersey teacher’s union Vice President Ryan Griffin (henceforth to be called GRIFF!) for a chat about the value of schools, a humble educator’s fondest wishes, and bizarre—even…UNWORLDLY??...news about strange doings in and around the World Cup!

PLUS…the return of the Build-a-Cult Workshop with an Alien Origins TWIST!

EPISODE 38: Profiles in Whiparound Greatness: DR. PHIL LAPORTA!

Episode Notes

It’s a Special Whiparound Get-to-Know-Your-Hosts™ episode! He’s a man of reason, a man of science, a man of many talents and toilet jokes, but just who IS Dr. Philip La Porta? Where does he come from? What shaped the young boy from New Jersey into a Brainiac-level intellect, a magician nonpareil, a laser-building, optics-checking, pun-wielding, weird-science expert beloved by so many? Find out as Dave and Shaun go into the mind of the REAL Doctor Phil! PLUS the good doctor brings us a very special edition of SCIENCE!...It Still Matters, Dammit™! that puts to rest a great many questions about the brain—including just what part controls the boob-obsession. Maybe.

AND…a Whiparound FIRST as Phil attempts a long-distance magic trick with his lovely assistant, Dave DiOrio! Can Phil’s powers of prestidigitation span a veritable ocean (ok, lake. Ok, ok: reasonably impressive puddle™!) of distance to pluck thoughts right out of Dave’s head? Tune in and find out on that most erudite of podcasts: the WHIPAROUND!

Episode 37: GWA (Grannies With Attitude)

Episode Notes

When nonagenarians go all 187, you can bet your old-timey word for buttocks that your pals at the Whiparound will be on the case: this week, an elderly woman guns down her own son, and the whys and wherefores send us careening to Kenyan self-defense class, stopping for a layover at the House of Cane Fu, and finally debuting ANOTHER NEW GAME! What’s old is still old and yet NEVER more dangerous, you’ll see!

BUT FIRST! Phil’s got an all-time highlight science segment, and you’ll NEVER guess what his eye spied on the Red Planet, ya’ll: bring your goggles for this one!

AND LATER…we’ve got drug store lawsuits, a well-timed self-defense ad, and more drunken seafowl than you can handle, boyo! Now c’mere and let grandpa give you a quarter…OR ELSE: you, whippersnapper, are here for your mandatory annual visit…to the WHIPAROUND!

Episode 36: Don’t Tell Mom the Sherpa’s Dead!

Episode Notes

It’s ever more WEIRD news as Dave, Phil, and Shaun drag a back-pages story into the glaring light of (basement) truth! This week, a PR stunt by a less-than-pristine company leads to buried cryptocurrency treasure, a daring mountain-top rescue, and a freshly mummified native guide. The boys talk bizarre PR history, the ethics of risking it all, and the burgeoning adventure-industrial complex!

PLUS…Dave takes free agency to task and spares no feelings as he rails against the dying of the NBA’s esprit de corps!

AND…this episode’s Three for the Road features UGLY statues, BEAUTIFUL baby planets, and an UPDATE on the mysterious case of the Lehigh Valley EXPLOSIONS!

Episode 35: A Voice from the Borderlands! With Special Guest Martha Harms

Episode Notes

Prolific, up-and-coming voice actress Martha Harms (Maya in Borderlands 2) took time out of her schedule to chat with Shaun and Jill about her voiceover career, to announce an exciting new project she’s got premiering RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER (hint: it’s one of the biggest cartoon properties EVER), and to crack open the tricky pathways connecting celebrity, power, and volatile politics in 2018. Plus, Martha proves an absolute all-star at a brand new game!

BUT FIRST!

What was the spark that lit the fire fueling Ms. Harms’ rise? What role would someone with so many cool credits to her name DREAM about voicing? What does Martha Harms sound like when impersonating a blood-thirsty Russian warrior bent on massacring throngs of space bugs? ALL of that and more is answered by our Act 1 interview!

AND, in Three for the Road, Jill’s got her eye on rude scavengers, Shaun’s got the key to surviving a submerged car, and it turns out that EVERYONE is better off carrying a big stick at all times… It’s our best guest spot yet—and if ever an episode deserved to be rescued from technical trouble, boy howdy, it was this one! Strap yourselves in and prepare for a barrage of professional-grade vocal articulation, this here’s THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode (Negative)5: Seeking Listeners for the End of the World

Episode Notes

Well... it's Phil here writing these notes instead of our far more qualified writer Shaun and... oh dear... that means it has finally happened, Dear Citizen. The day has come that we've teased for so very long. Due to the audacity of our editing computer (The Whiparound 2000), the episode we recorded on Monday is not yet ready for release. But we would not leave you this week without our dulcet tones. Nay nay nay! Instead... we bring you... an episode from... THE NEGATIVE WORLD!

This one dates back to the first week of September of 2017. It's actually the 5th practice episode we recorded as a podcast in the pupa stage, and you can hear The Whiparound you know and love starting to take shape in the show structure and conversations. Despite its asynchronous release, we think you'll find the topic just as hot today as it was then. You could say it's NUCLEAR HOT!

That's right, we're talking about North Korea and its then nacent ability to blow us up from afar. Thankfully, Dave and Shaun are here to pressure Phil into ending the world. So how dangerous are those nukes? Where can I get a radiation proof suit? How likely are we to star in our own Fallout game? You'll have to listen to this episode to find out!

Episode 34: The Vile Internet Diaries

Episode Notes

Some seedy sports news out of Philadelphia opens the way for Dave, Shaun, and Jill to peel back the rather nasty outer layer of the Internet to expose…well…SUPER nasty layers within! Internet crimes, misdemeanors, and the miscreants who love them are in focus this week. We’ve got stats, anecdotes, and more bizarre portmanteaus (vishing!?) than you can shake a Nigerian Prince at. AND prepare yourself for the spectacular return of the Shaun Quiz!

BUT FIRST! Jill returns with some more Here’s the Thing: what Puritanical, Halloween-hatin’ Youtube tomfoolery has her dander up? Tune in to find out!

AND, in Three for the Road, you’ll find passionate bidet screeds, horserace conspiracy theories, and some heartfelt outreach from Ms. Yapsuga herself. Type your SSN here so we can get your bank access restored—you can trust us, we are…THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 33: Sex and Violence and Pierogis!

Episode Notes

The summer movie blitz is well underway and your pals at the Whiparound—as always—want the inside scoop! So we snagged some time with our friendly neighborhood cinephiles, Gabe Mara and Ryan Snyder of the Sex and Violence podcast and absolutely peppered them with questions about summer blockbusters, the crowded creative marketplace, and debuted a brand new game to test their intellectual moviegoing muscles. IT’S A MUST-HEAR! HYPE HYPE HYPE! AND Ryan talks up his JUST about ready to open food truck after hitting your very favorite comedy news team with some of his homemade pierogis.
