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 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 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 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 33: THE BLUNDER YEARS 

Breaking news: Twenty-one years after he met her, Mike still hasn’t figured Megan out. Is she really a hippie in suburban mom’s clothing? But then why has she never smoked pot? And why didn’t she tell him about those co-ed sleepovers she attended in high school? These burning questions are answered (sort of) in the latest episode of 100 Things, which also features the harrowing tale of that time Mike got asked to “go with” a girl for the first time. (Moral of the story: pizza > girls.) The jar offers a topic that made even the writer of it go “ugggggh.” Are mom dates really a thing, or are some of us just missing our high school cliques? Who knows, but one thing is certain: Megan and Mike wouldn’t relive THEIR awkward high school years for anything. But hey, for old time’s sake, spritz a little Drakkar Noir on your pulse points and get ready to cringe. This is episode 33.

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.

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 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 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.
