EPISODE 29 – I CALL MYSELF A FARTIST

Mike breaks with tradition and drinks beer instead of wine during episode 29 – and that’s just the first scandal this week. From the girl in short shorts who caught Mike’s eye that afternoon to the Valentine’s Day 18 years earlier when he crashed Meg’s pity party for one, there is no shortage of controversies this week. But your hosts eventually put aside their sparring to tackle a serious subject from the jar: farts. Specifically, euphemisms for farts. Whatever you call them – toots, cheek squeaks, stinkers, et cetera – we’re pretty sure you’ll agree that this week’s installment of 100 Things doesn’t stink.

EPISODE 28 – TIME TO TAKE OFF THE TRAINING WHEELS

Warning: Megan had a stubborn cough when this episode was recorded. We’re pretty sure germs don’t permeate podcasts, but if you’re a hypochondriac, have the Purell handy. AHEM. Number 28 starts off with a whoosh (or is it a wish?) because Meg and Mike still don’t have central air. But they persevere through the heat to discuss things like the “fit mom” phenomenon, double dating with parents and—courtesy of a journal kernel—the particular loneliness of a Sunday night in one’s twenties. After a 90210 F, Marry, Kill, your hosts pluck a topic from the jar that’s initially tough to decipher and requires a call to Michael’s mom for clarity. The conversation soon turns to fear of the unknown, and how hard it is to take your own advice. But it’s easy to take this advice: grab a few Halls and settle in for the latest episode of 100 Things in a Jar.

EPISODE 27 – THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO OMMMMMMMM

Michael doesn’t bring Megan flowers anymore—but thankfully there’s someone who does. That guy, and Megan’s other “suitors” are among the things discussed at the top of this episode. Also included: the unfortunate end of Megan’s last job, what’s going on with Mike’s nose, and a journal kernel from the vault that inspires Mike and Megan to revisit some of their more…complicated times. The jar saves Mike from further douche chills (just Google it) with a very calming topic. Not that your hosts can stay focused on it for very long. Maybe you’ll do better—so get comfortable, close your eyes, picture a cascading ocean wave and relax with the latest installment of 100 Things in a Jar.

EPISODE WINE – PRIMATERRA PINOT NERO

EPISODE 26 – TRAPEZOIDAL IN NATURE

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie that’s a podcast! Before the jar poses a question about the geometrical incongruities of pizza, Mike and Megan touch on some very deep philosophical questions, like why certain sounds are more pleasing than others, why a work week is 40 hours and which Spice Girl or New Kid they would they sleep with first if given the chance. There’s a Lost-centric F, Marry Kill and a very cringe worthy tale from Mike and Megan’s past. So call your favorite delivery place, grab your favorite toppings and enjoy this episode of 100 Things In A Jar because even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good!

EPISODE 25 – CAN I KICK IT? WITH MY THUNDER THIGHS?

Bette Midler was right: Ya gotta have frieeeennnnds. Especially the kind who send in quizzical topics like the one Michael and Megan pull out of the jar this week. But before that little piece of paper inspires a wide-ranging conversation about everything from erotic wedding dance lessons to the pleasure of impromptu dinner parties, Megan shares a Very Special Journal Kernel that prompts Mike to call for a drunken fight with a villain from her past. Whether you’re a Janet Jackson on the dance floor, or more of an Elaine Benes, you’re plenty cool enough to join your hapless hosts out on the rhythm rug for another episode of 100 Things in a Jar.

EPISODE WINE: 2014 NOBLE VINES 667 PINOT NOIR (again)
