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 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 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 29 – I CALL MYSELF A FARTIST

Mike breaks with tradition and drinks beer instead of wine during episode 29 – and that’s just the first scandal this week. From the girl in short shorts who caught Mike’s eye that afternoon to the Valentine’s Day 18 years earlier when he crashed Meg’s pity party for one, there is no shortage of controversies this week. But your hosts eventually put aside their sparring to tackle a serious subject from the jar: farts. Specifically, euphemisms for farts. Whatever you call them – toots, cheek squeaks, stinkers, et cetera – we’re pretty sure you’ll agree that this week’s installment of 100 Things doesn’t stink.

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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

Lucky episode seven opens with why we love “Naïve Melody” so much, then flashes back to our wedding day and Megan’s wardrobe malfunction—which Michael still hasn’t gotten over. We also discuss life goals, fear of failure, and why, in times of distress, it’s always wise to go to your happy place. Grab a sleeve of Thin Mints, your favorite latex partner and enjoy the show.

EPISODE 6 – MAY THE UNIVERSE BE WITH YOU

Low-budget wine and high-end philosophy are at the center of this episode, the first we recorded since taking the podcast public. Megan’s college roommate provides the topic, as well as a trip down memory lane. There are detours, too, of course—into Star Wars territory, the debacle that was this year’s Oscars, just how tall Mike is (or isn’t) and, hey, what ARE lady lumps anyway? But take heart: we explore some enlightening subjects, and in the end—all shall be well.
