EPISODE 46 – WHOEVER YOU’RE WITH, PREPARE TO BE TITILLATED!

Episode 46 kicks off with a case of the Mondays for Mike but luckily Megan brings him out of his funk and in no time the conversation shifts to memory loss, Jeopardy confusion and some uncomfortable group movie viewings. From there, the discussion segues to side hustles, authoring children’s books and gross sex toys salesmen. Unearthing some old college papers leads Megan and Mike to discuss digging deeper and all the potential pitfalls and vulnerabilities that come with that before the jar offers up the opportunity for M&M to discuss the dumbest things they ever did. While it’s hard to name just one there are tales of plank walking, drinking disasters, dog ownership and being fired by Mickey Mouse. There’s all that and much more in this episode sponsored by Lazysaxs and 100 puh-cent Vic DiBona approved !

EPISODE 45 – DEAR KATE, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU’LL REMEMBER ME …..

Episode 45 begins with Mike and Megan following up on last week’s episode, with a discussion on Grandma’s in-law rankings. Mike had planned to interview his Grandma, but was unable to due to a phone bill quagmire that needed attention. Speaking of quagmire, the results may not be what Megan expected to hear. From there the talk ventures into playoff baseball, Yankee teams of yesteryear and an awkward encounter for Megan. Speaking of awkward, Mike still doesn’t have a question to ask Megan, so they go to the jar which allows them to revisit their most memorable dates. Megan goes back to a time where the two weren’t really together, but was most definitely an ideal and memorable date. Afterward, Mike finally does come up with a question which leads to a discussion on dating apps, bad dates and a letter Mike penned that just really wasn’t necessary. You’ll definitely want to swipe right on this latest installment of 100 Things In A Jar!!!

EPISODE 43 – NINJAS & HAMMERS & GHOSTS – OH MY!

It was a dark and stormy night, not unlike this one, when Mike and Megan – a bottle of wine and a microphone by their side, the room illuminated only by candlelight – sat down to record Episode 43. As the wind howled a haunted tune outside, they told ghoulish tales about ill-fitting Merona shirts, Michael’s bedtime reading materials and scariest of all – Brett Kavanaugh. Terrified by what was being discussed, they attempted to move on, but the fear fest wasn’t over yet, as a seemingly innocuous question led to discussions on regret, past failures and improper use of household tools. The jar seemed to be possessed and made sure to keep the theme going by offering the chance for both hosts to share some spooky real life encounters with spirits and beings not of this earth! So be brave dear listener, because there’s all that and a whole lot more, (including laughs) just in time for Halloween on Episode 43 of 100 Things In a Jar!

EPISODE 42 – KEEP THE CHANGE

Episode 42 can be described in one word – uncomfortable. Mike and Megan discuss a range of topics that makes them so uneasy at one point they need to take a break. The conversations range from odd bathroom habits to traits they would like to change in each other and in themselves. Luckily everyone holds it together long enough to get to the jar, which doesn’t do them any favors and provides the same topic they were already discussing! The episode has plenty of easygoing moments as well that won’t make you squirm, plus audio cameos from Mike and Megan’s dads that makes Episode 42 quite a ride, so strap in and enjoy this roller coaster of emotions.

EPISODE 41 – THE BIRTH OF PENISCAT : GOD, I’M SO STUPID

Following another hiatus of undetermined length, Michael and Megan return with a new episode. After Mike gets through an early case of podcast jitters, they relive moments from their destructive childhood pasts, the finer points of wine bottle copywriting and a new segment that results in some audible gagging. The jar topic leads to a lengthy discussion on biographical movie titles, neighbors and their annoying dogs and the birth of the newest superhero of our time, PenisCat plus a whole bunch more. There may be smells outside but nothing about Episode 41 of One Hundred In a Jar stinks!

EPISODE 39 – WE CAN BE ROYALS

After an almost six month delay Mike and Megan are back! They have the microphone,  the jar of random topics and a bottle of ….. prosecco?! Everything has changed, yet everything remains the same, in this NEW episode of 100 Things In A Jar. In addition to what has been going on the last half year , the unofficial start of Season 2 has a brand new missing purple baby saga, big family addition news and even fancy stemware Megan discovered in the basement! The mood is lightened by some unexpected visits from the kids as well as the jar topic which deals with the complexities of language … or is it something deeper? Well they can’t figure it out, so instead the talk turns to a new easier segment, “IS IT A MAMMAL?” , talk of the Royal Wedding and some truth bombs regarding marriage. Mike and Megan are all in and they hope you are as well!

EPISODE 35 – SEX AND CANDY

Mike and Megan are back just in time for a Halloween themed episode which leads them to discussions of their favorite costumes of yesteryear, the differences between suburban and city halloweens and Mike’s healthy fear of 8 foot rabbits ransacking his home. There’s another impromptu food themed F, Marry, Kill and some other silliness before the jar sways the conversation to the topic of edible underwear, which is hopefully something nobody gives out this year for trick or treat.

EPISODE 34 – MOIST DELUXE

After a one week hiatus Mike and Megan are back and it doesn’t take long before they’re delving into such disparate topics like dirty talk, gross words and Megan’s superstitious sports viewing habits. The jar presents a topic about having dinner for breakfast which leads to an impromptu breakfast themed F, Marry, Kill. Time is seemingly only going quicker so stop, relax and enjoy Episode 34! It’s “shock”sukingly delicious!

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 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 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 19 – UP YOUR WAZOO REAL SIMPLE, THIS IS MY TIME!

Guilty pleasures are the topic of Episode 19 and Mike and Megan share the foods, booze, entertainment and rituals they enjoy partaking in when nobody else is looking or judging. Also included in this episode is another installment of “Megan’s Journal Kernels”, the time Mike wanted to set up Megan with a total psychopath and how Mike transformed from a handsome, smiling high school graduate into a cheese eatin’, port swillin’ goblin who scared girls. All that and much more are featured here on this episode. Use your “me time” anytime you want, maybe have a few bowls of Fruity Pebbles, and enjoy this episode BIG TIME!!!!

EPISODE 18 – AMOUR FOU-RTY

In this episode Mike and Megan tackle the subject of turning 40 and all it entails, such as realizing your mortality (or not), becoming more sure of yourself, feeling a greater need to connect and the simple joy of  watching kids singing. Aging isn’t all bad as Megan and Mike look back on younger days when Mike looked like a lesbian woman and Megan appeared to be a gay man. The hosts also get to play their first listener generated F, MARRY, KILL game! It’s all part of life’s rich pageant. Oh by the way, hey John, give Mike a call!

EPISODE 13 – CEASE THE DAY!

After a long and tiring month, Mike and Megan could use a little luck to get through this week’s episode. Untimely Costco trips, turning 40 and losing their bed and breakfast virginity are all discussed before the jar steers the conversation to tales of getting fired by a mouse, obsessive compulsive list making and some random singing until Mike and Megan attempt to finally escape this episode and say goodnight.

EPISODE 12 – WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO TODAY???

After a false start that was scrapped 10 minutes in Michael and Megan rebound with a jam-packed episode all about travel. Where have your hosts been? Where do they want to go? And has anyone else heard of something called Airbnb? Michael is intrigued! Also this week: Megan reads aloud from her old journals, and Michael weighs the perks and perils of becoming a firefighter.

EPISODE 8 – YOU GIVE US 22 MINUTES, WE’LL GIVE YOU A DIFFERENT TOPIC

After 7 episodes Mike and Megan feel comfortable enough to have some guests join them in the kitchen, and as usual the friends they have invited do not disappoint. John and Antoinette stop by and sit in for what is by far our most random topic to date. Luckily a tale as old as time known as the 2014 Beerfest Debacle provides a welcome departure from the confounding topic the jar provides and results in one of the funniest and most fun shows to date.
