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 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 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 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 4 – TATTOO WHO?

The deck is stacked against Mike and Megan this week. A stubborn stomach bug, our first technical difficulty and toddlers falling out of bed are just some of the adversities making Episode 4 a challenge at times. But what begins as a conversation about tattoos, evolves into Megan getting to showcase a never before heard talent that amazes Michael and saves the day.

EPISODE 2 – HOLY SH*T WHAT A RIDE!

We’re back for more. And we hope you are too. But beware: Mike is grumpy! (Who knew you actually had to pay to get your garbage hauled away?) Luckily Megan interrupts an epic rant and saves the ship from sinking entirely. In this episode, we cover Mike’s desire to be Ryan Gosling for a day, the perks of aging (there are a few), developing a sense of creative urgency, and why Megan married “that idiot.”

EPISODE 1- WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS

Our first episode ever! Wherein we explain who we are and what in the world we’re doing with this big glass jar full of paper. Please listen! But before you listen, listen: we’re new to this. We’re winging it here. We go off topic frequently and use grown-up words. In this particular episode we cover booze, introverts versus extroverts, tips for handling adversity, and all the things you can do with a lemon.
