Episode 48: Everything is Awful Now or, The Spider News Special! with Special Guest Simka Griffin!

Episode Notes

It’s a barn-burner of an episode as Jill and Shaun are joined by friend of the show Simka Griffin for a jam-packed show: we’ve got updates from Dave and Shaun’s charity gaming “work” with Geekade.com’s Pain in the Ass-a-thon over the weekend, a shout-out to a dedicated fan, SURVEY NEWS, and not one but TWO major stories about horrible, horrible spiders and their horrible, horrible behavior to cover! First we’re off to Greece, where a spider death orgy has led to thick webs enshrouding hundreds of meters of beautiful coastline, but don’t run away just yet: we’ve still got to jet to merry old England for a rather eerie story of a disembodied voice singing lullabies to terrified townsfolk in the middle of the night: AND THE ANSWER IS SPIDERS! Be sure not so miss another brand new game to get the horridness of arachnids off your brain: this week, Shaun brings us “Nature or Horror!” a sound-based trivia game sure to raise your hackles!

BUT FIRST! Jill’s got a brand new issue to cover in Here’s the Thing, and this time, she’s got sushi in her crosshairs. Uh-oh…

PLUS, in Three for the Road, folks are sniping mini-horse-eating gators in Livingston, Texas, the flu vaccine cannot give you the effing flu, and Australia’s needles-in-fruit crisis is spreading from berries to other goodies! Is Big Candy to blame??

You’re never more than ten feet from a spider BUT you’re also never more than a click away from your very best friends…AT THE WHIPAROUND!

PS: It’s your last chance to do a survey and enter our contest: it’s 10 Clicks for 10 Bucks and YOU could be a winner! AND If we get enough by the last day of September, Phil’s gonna DOUBLE the value to 20 dollars each Amazon gift card! Click the first link below and you’ll be on your way!

Episode 46: "It's a Show and Tell Episode!"

Episode Notes

Ah, planning. Not only is it not a ton of fun, but it can ALSO backfire! Join Shaun, Dave, and Phil, as they rapidly recover from a “weird” story gone MAINSTREAM by grabbing some recent bizarre news buried amidst the usual scandals and awfulness to bring you the Whiparound’s very first by-the-skin-of-their-teeth, mostly-improved Show and Tell Episode! Dave’s got deadly underground tunnels on his mind, Shaun’s packing a tale of pole dancing gone terribly wrong, and Phil brings us the very latest in Microwave abuse! It’s a threefer, it is! And don’t miss our brand new tongue twister JUST FOR SCIENTISTS! You’ll love it!

BUT FIRST!

Phil is here to discuss, in intense, bare-knuckle detail, a rising problem that mixes all the fun of automated censorship with inadvertent potty-mouths on the internet! It’s a thrilling battle of soulless machines and hapless folks with unfortunate names this week in SCIENCE!...It Still Matters, Dammit.

AND, in Three for the Road, Goop’s got the vaginal egg blues, Dave’s got praise for a rising tennis star, and Shaun’s got a lead on a stolen…lawn?! All that and more awaits on this edition of your best friend in the whole wide world: THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 45: Feel the Sting!

Episode Notes

And just like that, summer is fading away…oh but WAIT! Shaun’s here with a barrage of bizarro, stinging, creepy-crawly bug news from the hottest season of the year! Scorpions climbing into people’s mouths, celebrities befriending hostile wasps, and VERY well-endowed pests of the Amazon are just some of the wonders Dave will have to endure for your listening pleasure. Maybe grab your Epi-pen, because things soon turn to ANOTHER round of Truth or Bullsh-t: featuring exhaustive research into what one Entomologist went through to catalogue the feeling of being bitten and stung by a veritable HORDE of angry insects!

BUT FIRST!

Dave gives us a preview of what’s going on with Podadelphia’s sports coverage and provides a nearly-sort-of-kinda-perfectish explanation of our SURVEY CONTEST and then lets loose with a chest-thumping defense of holiday enthusiasm in a very special What Made Dave Angry This Week! AND, in Three for the Road, wet willies may or may not be criminal offenses, New England football fans get pranked by Dunkin Donuts, and Shaun discovers how far one plucky Russian nail salon will go for some viral fame!

Gah! They’re everywhere! These things can sting over and over and over…Quick, dive into THE WHIPAROUND!

Episode 44: No Kidneys, No Backsies!

Episode Notes

Folks, the Doctor is IN! And Shaun’s here, too! It’s a Whiparound DUO episode and the fellas crack open a case of the purloined…kidney? Medical malpractice of the most bizarre sort is the focus this time around, and if this were a game of Operation, the warranty would be voided for sure! And before the dust settles, the sutures cool, and the lawsuits get off the ground, Phil and Shaun break still MORE new gaming ground with a rousing (and startlingly cost-effective) game of Truth or Bullsh-t! Join in the fun and decide which bouts of quackery are legit and which tales of terrible taste the boys cooked up on their own…

BUT FIRST!

Phil has some news about the most recent superfood to take the world…and your ARTERIES by storm in SCIENCE!...It Still Matters, Dammit. And as a bonus, he gives us all some (vaguely?) terrific news about beef tallow! ALRIGHT!

AND, in Three for the Road, a monster reveals his kink, school advice abounds, and porn addiction gets its comeuppance at last!

Episode 43: Have Eggs Will Travel

Episode Notes

Hong Kong wins big in the Bizarre Tech Fad lottery: dating via VENDING MACHINES! Coins plus personal information in plastic capsules equals love! Maybe! Dave, Shaun, and Jill brush up on their AA-BB-CC’s to unpack this strange twist in dating (and hope the answers don’t get stuck halfway to the bottom of the machine!). It isn’t long before Jill shares some tales from the dating dark side and Dave goes gallivanting to the seedy vending machine underbelly of Japan, where things…well…things get gross. This story is equal parts The Terminator and Love Connection…and Shaun’s got a brand new game that pulls from both worlds: stay tuned for The Match Game: Skynet Edition once the weird news washes over ya!

BUT FIRST!

Jill kicks things off with a Here’s the Thing that asks that age-old question: how come there’s no such thing as a MOM Bod? Delight as Shaun and Dave squirm under the glaring spotlight of Jill’s societal critique!

AND, in Three for the Road, Jill’s STILL railing against birds, dogs are licking people’s legs off, and Dave’s been robbed! Get in here fast and deposit your quarters before somebody goes and jams gum in the coin slot… IT’S THE WHIPAROUND!

PS: Don’t forget to fill out a survey: it’s 10 Clicks for 10 Bucks and YOU could be a winner!

Episode 42: What's YOUR Evil Rainbow Number?

Episode Notes

The Whiparound is here this week…and EVIL is coming with us! Scientists from Europe claim to have isolated the very nature of human darkness and suggest the 9 key “evil” traits are measurable! So OF COURSE Jill, Phil, and Shaun are testing themselves and invite YOU to come along and see just how dastardly you really are: which of us will reign supreme…or at least act like a major d-bag given the chance?? (Hint: no one does GREAT…)

BUT FIRST! Phil’s got the skinny on what makes anti-vaxxers tick AND IT’S WORSE THAN YOU THOUGHT…

AND, in Three for the Road, we’ve got exciting Whiparound podcast-family news, excessive bird numbers, conspiracy theorist blues, fully consensual ghost f+cking…AND MORE!

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 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!
