It’s Memorial Day weekend and while most are out enjoying sunshine, pools and barbecue, it’s a good time to reflect on our history and what this day is actually about. This week, we look at the history of Memorial Day and some of the lesser known stories of those who have died serving our country.
We finally saw Black Panther and loved it! Super hero movies have come so far in 10 years, and there’s so much going on that they can be intimidating! How did this master plan of films come to fruition and how have they played out? We look back at the 19 films leading up to Avengers: Infinity War — with no spoilers!
This week, Mike joined the group of most Americans who, at some point in their lives, get their 3rd molars removed. Why is this weird procedure such common practice? Why are they called “wisdom” teeth? And why do we have ’em anyway?! Also… some funny clips of Mike on pain killers.
Did you have a spell of bad luck last Friday? Ever notice a lot of tall buildings skip floor 13? Have you been chased by a guy in a hockey mask? We get into all of these topics and more this week as we discuss the superstition of the number 13 and pop culture around Friday the 13th!
The reality show that started the DIY television craze is rebooting this weekend, nearly 20 years after the first episode. This week we spend some time talking about why Trading Spaces became such a breakout hit and we re-visit some of the disasters of design that came out of it.
It’s Easter… and April Fool’s Day. This week, we taste some of the random candy that only comes at Easter, chat about family Easter traditions and Mike shares some WTF facts about Peeps!
Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa is the largest free-standing mountain in the world – a place few ever get to see in person. Last year, however, our friend Chad took an amazing journey to climb it! In this special episode, Chad and his partner, Matt, join us to tell his story about how he came to make the climb and the incredible physical and mental feats that it takes to get to the summit!
This week, we take a ride into the world of American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE) for their 6th annual off-season tour at California’s Great America. We talk about this tight-knit community, get the inside scoop on Great America’s 2018 updates and get a behind-the-scenes look into off-season operations. Steve quizzes mike on random Bay Area theme park trivia and Mike challenges us to start taking time to do what we love.
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.
We’re picking up our chat about old family holiday traditions – and who better to talk to about it than our Moms?! 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)!
