EPISODE LIII – I POOPED ON MOOKIE

Episode 53—make that LIII—begins innocently enough with the revelations that Mike is a leaf (or is it a feather?) floating through life, and Megan has been keeping a secret book of amazing thoughts (not really). But the episode soon takes an unfortunate turn into what TED talks are and what big ideas Mike might share if he gave one of these so-called TED talks. Mike protests Megan’s answer, but then proves his co-host’s point when he almost unwittingly shares a story involving a public park, a well-placed copy of the New York Daily News and a gastrointestinal emergency. Oh shit! The jar saves the episode from going completely down the toilet—at least momentarily—with a question about whether aliens exist. All Mike and Megan know is that E.T. was awesome and David Duchovny was pretty hot on the X-Files. In the spirit of solidarity, Megan closes the episode with her own unhappy memory of pooping in public thanks to an ill-timed bout of food poisoning. Hopefully you don’t think this episode stinks, but we promise you it will be your current number one favorite. Or maybe number two.

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 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 20 – CALL ME AN OLD FOGEY, BUT A LITTLE THANK YOU GOES A LONG WAY

Episode 20 starts with an embarrassing admission from Megan and quickly spirals into Mike singing a variety of songs and testing out some lyrics for a new musical. After an impromptu  game of F, Marry, Kill the jar brings up the issue of thank you notes and cursive, topics Megan the writer are very passionate about. Mike attempts to refute her, but is so blown away by the strength of her argument he winds up wanting to become a hippy who writes random thank you notes to people he doesn’t even know. There’s that and much more, so put down your newfangled technologies, grab a meatball sandwich with your favorite UPS delivery man and hey, don’t worry about your lawn FFS.  You’re doing the best you can, so thank you!

EPISODE 17 – TIME AND TIME AGAIN

Nostalgia, the evanescence of childhood, and sex with celebrities—this episode is a mixed bag if there ever was one. After a meaningful discussion on the passage of time, Mike and Megan revisit Episode 14, and finally name who is on their free pass list. While Mike is quite interested in the bare tush of a gal on “Fargo,” Megan recounts the time she bought John Krasinski a Guinness. Finally, the jar brings them on a trip down memory lane, to summers spent at the beach and a bittersweet reminder that those days are gone forever.

EPISODE 14 – FEELING HAWT, HAWT, HAWT!

It’s suddenly sweltering in this neck of the woods—but this episode ain’t about the weather. Michael and Megan are talking about celebrities: meeting them, shouting the C-word with them, and maybe, who knows, someday getting a free pass with a few. Meg’s friend Sarah provided this week’s topic and though no consensus is reached about Julian Edelman, plenty of other famous names are bandied about. But here’s the real question: who’s on YOUR get out of jail free list?

EPISODE 10 – WHY ARE WE HERE?

Grammar lessons, tales of untimely farts, a call-in from Michael’s mother and an attempt to answer a question even the smartest, most insightful minds in history have failed to—all this and more is included in our TENTH EPISODE. That’s right, we’ve made it into the double-digits, thanks to you, our loyal listeners. Come to think of it, we are here because of YOU.

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.
