Episode 30: The Men, the Myths, the CONTEST!

Episode Notes

The boys of the Whiparound combine their powers for PROFIT! As profits soar for Avengers: Infinity War, Playstation’s God of War sequel, and other mystical, myth-mining properties, Dave, Phil, and Shaun realize what’s been missing from your favorite comedy-news podcast: a PATRON mythological hero! Thus, a powerful contest is in order, in which mythological heroes from across the globe and throughout the wide expanse of time vye for the chance to serve as The Whiparound’s resident mythological cash cow! It’s Mortal Kom—wait, no. It’s WHIPAROUND KOMBAT! Will Japan’s bizarrely cute Peach Boy make it to contest’s end? Does folksy Johnny Appleseed have a trick up his checkered sleeve? Is there a dark horse champion in the making? Tune in to find out—

BUT FIRST! Dave’s got grave concerns over thoughtless social media birthday wishes in the return of What Made Dave Angry This Week... AND we’ve got leaky brain fluid, a creepily-shorn Mario, and LASER EYES in an action-packed Three for the Road!

Many heroes will enter, but only ONE will survive to make us rich and help with all this pesky filing work—ON THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 29: The MICRO Whiparound: Now with 100% more ASMR!

Episode Notes

It’s like a frozen can of Whiparound Concentrate in Mom’s freezer: this week, the Whiparound has been distilled into a THIRD of its usual length while still bringing you all the incredible (and incredibly weird) takes on the news and current events. We’ve been TRAVEL sized for ease in sharing with friends, relatives, sleeping hospital patients, curiously intelligent horses, and paintings with eyes that follow you around the room. So pass this guy around!

The Ills and Shaun waste no time getting to business: Phil returns with some legitimate news about…a gaydar machine?! Jill and Shaun have their doubts, but there’s actually some computery science at play…we think.

In the Deep Dive, it’s all about the strange, soothing, sleep OR frustration-inducing phenomena taking Youtube by sonorous storm: ASMR. An upcoming comedy/ASMR fusion album gets Shaun, Phil, and Jill discussing their takes on “Head Tinglers,” how close this all wanders toward porn, and MAYBE even take a stab at some whisper-gold themselves.

And of COURSE, Three for the Road careens into some fascinating territory: King Tut’s disappointing lack of secret Mommy rooms, Matthew McConaughey goes singing in the rain, and MAYBE Milli Vanilli wrote Shakespeare’s plays! We’re killing you softly—with KNOWLEDGE—ON THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 28: This is Your Brain on Comedy (Ew.) with Guest Steve Bost

Episode Notes

Comedian, trivia host, and man of many metaphorical hats Steve Bost jumps into a pair of headphones with Jill and Shaun just in time to discuss the dazzling, deviling performance by Michelle Wolf at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner! But first, Steve discusses his many gigs, gives Shaun a lead on some serious cider, and unveils a top secret medical project (sort of)! But then it’s time to get comedy on that leather couch and get up to some sweet, sweet psychoanalytical jam, ya’ll! And of COURSE we talk about SYNERGY, are you kidding me right now? TONS! TONS OF SYNERGY FOR ALL!

Watch out for strangely sensitive farm animals; you’re approaching THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 27: A Toast to Ways Less Riven with Fuckerey with Paul Fidalgo

Episode Notes

This week, Shaun and Dave are joined by Paul Fidalgo, the Communications Director for the Center for Inquiry. With a LOT of ground to cover—everything from rescues in Bangladesh to pushing back against rampant quackery—the group goes positively careening from topic to topic with no time to spare! The nature of secular humanism? We’ve got that. The paradoxically liberating and inhibiting nature of social media freeing and smothering the dialogue of and between freethinkers and the faithful alike? Check. A hilarious break into a thrilling round of The Build-a-Cult Workshop? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! Paul proves to be an energetic, enthusiastic and kind-hearted guest, but will he be able to withstand the gauntlet of frustration Dave has up his sleeve? We’ve got mesh tops, snake oil, and a cash booth here, which can only mean it’s time for…THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 26: “A Few Bad Cheesesteaks,” with Returning Guest: Ward Van Haute

Episode Notes

Artist, gentleman, and Director-Curator of the Bethlehem House Contemporary Art Gallery returns with PRIZES to award, KNOWLEDGE to impart, and a true-crime story to help unfurl! A Delaware native dons a Phillies cap and a hideous sweater, steals away from an art show and escspes with a 2000-year-old…thumb? Join Ward, Jill, and Shaun as they puzzle out this tawdry tale of international idiocy and, along the way, examine human selfishness, the true value of priceless items, and why so much art ENTERS Philly but far less ever escapes!

And YES! We’ve got contest winners! In Act 1, find out who earned those $25 gift cards and the ultra-rare pint glasses! PLUS, at the show’s end, we announce the winner of the custom The Warriors movie poster courtesy of local artist Tyler Martis. Greed and scandal and generosity fly around this place like snowballs dropping on Santa’s head! It must be time for…THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 25: The Phantom (Torso) Menace

Episode Notes

We’ve got our scientist back! Briefly!

Dr. Phil La Porta swings back in to help Jill and Shaun understand some of biggest and most controversial science stories in the news. And, of course, things veer off course early, often, and with much hilarity. We’ve got space mutations, ethical quandaries, and crash-test corpses IN SPACE!

But first, a light appetizer of scandal news, Jill’s Here’s the Thing is all about identity and unisex clothes choices, and Shaun worries about a certain Canadian psychologist teetering on the edge of Messianic status. PLUS! Contests abound—listen in for your chance to win in not one but TWO amazing giveaways!

Generosity abounds on the only podcast worth trusting: THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 24: GTFO UFOs!

Episode Notes

UFOs break into the news cycle once again, and Shaun and Dave join forces to cover the story before quickly plummeting into the dark recesses of their own deep fears. BUT! A recent breakthrough in therapy promises that, with enough exposure to the sources of their dread, the guys might just ditch their phobias once and for all…but did they bring enough material to scare the fear right out of their bodies?

BUT FIRST! Dave’s got some Disney Rage in What Made Dave Angry This Week, Shaun’s got a new musical buddy, and Three for the Road confronts cheating gamblers, reveals how few trolls there really are on the web and more!

For those about to hear us squirm, we salute you!...ON THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 23: Is that Art in Your Pocket or Are You on the Whiparound?

Episode Notes

Shaun and Jill are joined by artist & director-curator of the Bethlehem House Contemporary Art Gallery Ward Van Haute, and things get fascinating IN A HURRY. Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes interview is merely the starting block for a conversation that tackles porn, the meaning of art, bat care (YEP), and what might be the most insane, bizarrely fun game we’ve played yet. Also, make sure to perk those ears up especially high at the 1:12:30 mark, when Ward puts FIVE $25 dollar gift cards on the line for listeners able to correctly answer some questions about the Bethlehem House Art Gallery. AND Shaun gets unhinged about anti-apple juice discrimination. What’s not to LOVE?

It’s style AND substance this week…ON THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode Notes

Heads are a-rolling in the Trump administration, and the Whiparound is here to look into the news and run headlong into the entire daunting issue of FIRINGS for all of us regular folks, too! Shaun’s got a list of recent ousters and after everyone tries to connect the dots, your hosts end up in a game of NEVER HAVE I EVER: BAD EMPLOYEE EDITION!

Also, Jill shares about her show, Dave cordially invites everyone to own their shit, and Shaun has a heartfelt defense of social flakes. We’ve got everything from hacky sack sackings to an oral Venn Diagram of the President and Michael Jackson, so get in here or you are FIRED!^

Episode Notes

It’s Saint Patrick’s Day in just a few and who better to join Jill and Shaun to ring in and overanalyze the holiday than a few members of a popular Irish folk band? Matt Breiner and Brian Donnelly of The Rogue Diplomats join the show this week as the Whiparound’s FIRST musical guests! Between songs, Matt and Brian chat with your hosts about the history of Paddy’s Day, how Americans and the Irish see and celebrate the holiday differently and help unpack the tricky question of whether it’s PAIN that brings about the best CELEBRATIONS!

PLUS, Jill has an update about her brand new Youtube series AND some reflections on her recent trip to Disneyworld and Shaun does a whole show hopped up on Sudafed and beer; so you remember just as much about recording day as he does! Woohoo!
