EPISODE 24 – CATHOLICS DON’T CARE ABOUT CHEMISTRY

The jar offers a compelling question about music, but episode 25 quickly delves into the murkier waters of first loves, teenage dreams and the advice Mike should have given Britney Spears but never did. For good measure there’s also a listener-submitted F, Marry, Kill (plus a bonus “Walking Dead” edition), a sad-but-promising Journal Kernel, and the horribly awkward line Megan uttered when she finally met the object of her prepubescent obsession (hint: he was in a 90s boy band). Quick, someone call Sarah from Honda. We need help!

EPISODE 23 – COME A LITTLE CLOSER, LET US WHISPER IN YOUR EAR

The moment Mike and Megan always feared finally happens on Episode 23 as the jar gives them a topic related to the current political landscape. The timing couldn’t be any worse as Megan starts the episode by announcing she has given up reading any and all news having to do with the state of the world, in an attempt to stay positive. That leads Mike to put his minor in psychology to work as he plays armchair therapist while being sure not to interrupt and just listen, so as not to be punched by Antoinette. Look, they don’t have all the answers and they sure as hell don’t know what Trump whispered to Michelle Obama, but they do have lots of other things to say about surviving a zombie apocalypse, possible part-time jobs in the sex industry and gross hotel stays, so perk up your ears and listen closely to this latest installment of 100 Things In A Jar.

EPISODE 22 – BE MINDFUL DAD, DON’T LISTEN TO THIS ONE

Let’s talk about sex, bay-bee. Let’s talk about you and me. Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things—like doing it when your kids are in the room. Wait, WHAT!? After discussing Mike’s new professional ventures, the subject of mindfulness, and a Journal Kernel from Megan’s first day of college, the jar deals a legit R-rated topic…one Mike and Meg are all too happy to delve into. That is, assuming Meg’s dad skips this one and goes right to episode 23. (SERIOUSLY DAD.) The rest of you should dim the lights, slip into something more comfortable and enjoy this installment of 100 Things—which is possibly sexier than Real Sex on HBO. Possibly.

EPISODE 21 – SARAH GIVETH AND SARAH TAKETH AWAY

The podcast is 21 episodes old, but there’s a case of arrested development as all of Mike and Megan’s technology has failed forcing them to record with limited resources. After recapping what was a wonderful vacation spent together at Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival, a round of F, Marry, Kill and another stellar installment of Megan’s Journal Kernels, the jar gives a crappy joke. Mike suffers a mini panic attack, but Megan calms things down as the conversation goes into weightier topics like trying new things, dreamers dreaming and how much time they have to become as successful as Megan Mullally and Vinny Pastore. Whether in the jungle or at a bruhrerry, coloring with crans, or hanging with the mare, fire up the grill (but don’t burn the house down) and enjoy this grown up installment of 100 Things In A Jar.
