Episode Notes

Dead computers, incompatible proprietary outlets, and lactose intolerance all in the same DAY! What’s a podcast to do?? When you’re as brave, bold, and bloated as your favorite comedy/news podcast, you hitch up your jean shorts and plow proudly on!

"Episode 14: Equality, MRA Pain, and Saint Sarah Silverman"

Episode Notes

Jill, Shaun, and Phil discuss the Women’s March one year later—and take a hard turn down Men’s Right’s Activism Alley. PLUS! Jill lays out a case for therapy and compassion over rage-posting online in Here’s The Thing...AND, in Three For the Road, Phil’s had his fill of coffee enemas, Shaun’s a 400-year-old Italian head, and Jill MIGHT have a haunted murder sauna in her basement. Sprinkle in some prison weightlifting measured in Reese Witherspoons, a hefty dose of Life Skilzzzzzzz(TM), and a dash of Darth Troll-er and you’ve got yourself a serious case of The Whiparound!

Episode 12: Beating Back Bro-Science

Episode Notes

Personal trainer and strength coach Rob Ventre joins the gang for a discussion of America’s attitudes, practices, and misconceptions about the fitness universe—and JUST in time for us to connect it all to those all-too-popular weight loss and muscle gain New Year’s Resolutions. From “sick gains” to “snake weights,” from “Liftr” to the value of discomfort, Ventre and the guys power through the bull and flex their mighty…intellects! BUT FIRST! We greet 2018 with all the hope and joy we can muster, sharing tales of wounded Whoodles, casual board gaming, and antisocial tendencies! AND IN THE SPEED ROUND… Shaun is tempted by the softer, sillier world of My Little Pony, Phil’s got his eyes on the prize in the skies, Dave pines for the days of his favorite-but-sadly-defunct Youtube channel, and Mr. Ventre breaks brains with some controversial comments about mainsplaining!
