EPISODE 47 – DIARY OF A JUNIOR ROMANCE NOVEL WRITER

The latest installment of 100 Things in a Jar begins with an exhausted Michael ,which leads to a lengthy discussion on manspreading, the changing human brain and the anxieties associated with becoming first time parents. An upcoming party has Megan cleaning the basement while listening to podcasts she highly recommends as well as some books she thinks are nightstand worthy. Speaking of worthy reads, she also unearths some of her writing from circa 6th grade which leads to the triumphant return of Megan’s Journal Kernels where she unleashes venomous tween rage by rating her days, and ranting on being an alternate member of the Seven-Sational as well as a recitation of what is to believed her first attempt at romance novel writing. There’s some brief discussion about a recent weather emergency in the area before the jar kicks off a discussion about zombie apocalypse survival techniques, the various ways to kill a zombie and a live prank phone call. So sit back and grab your food buckets because there’s all that and a whole lot more to feast on in this alive and well episode of 100 Things 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 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 9 – WHAT’S YOUR DREAM? EVERYBODY’S GOT A DREAM!

After a hiatus from recording due to some everyday life roadblocks like vomiting kids, general testiness and a bad case of “pepper hands”, Mike and Megan settle down for another bottle of red and deliver lucky episode 9. After the usual back and forth banter, the jar offers the topic of dream careers. While Mike doesn’t quite seem sure what his dream career may be, Megan’s dream has the possibility of one day becoming a reality.
