It’s President’s Day, so let’s talk about some amazing ones… from the past and from fiction! Time travel to save JFK, false teeth made of ivory and screws, a murderous Abraham Lincoln and Obama’s colorful new portrait round out this week’s theme of commander-in-chief. Also, Mike tries to create a game of presidential quiz wiz and fails.

Today was the big game! We didn’t watch it, but we’re gonna talk about it. Rivalry on the gridiron! Big ad money! And… owls, apparently. What do owls have to do with football? Listen to find out!
Can you imagine swimming a mile, biking 24 miles, then finishing up with a 6 mile run all in the same day? We can’t either, but this week our friend Jeremy joins us as our first in-studio guest to talk about what it takes to compete in the Lavaman Triathlon. We also talk about his incredible fundraising efforts with Team In Training, AIDS Lifecycle and Cancer’s A Drag.

We don’t know how to wrap up the year, so we’re re-capping some our favorite movies, TV shows and podcasts from 2017. This special end of year double episode has death in Monterey, return of America’s favorite white trash family and math is hard for Mike!

Our Moms take over the storytelling this week as they give us a rundown on what we were like as kids, what we wanted for Christmas and the lengths they went to to make our holidays special. A warning for parents: while there’s nothing explicit in this episode, it’s not one you’ll want to listen to with your kids (if you know what we mean)!
The season of festive cheer is upon us, but it’s not always easy (for us anyway) to break the ice at the many holiday parties. This week we explore some advice to have better conversations at parties with friends or co-workers.
