019 – Let’s Play: Mary-Kate and Ashley Crush Course

Play

Whether your boyfriend is a hopeless romantic or has the emotional range of a rock, this is an episode you’ll love. And if you don’t have a boyfriend, congratulations! You’ll love it too. This week we’re discussing season 2 episode 7: The Chicken Dance. It’s a wedding episode, which makes it a perfect time for Carrie to reflect on her dumpster fire of a relationship with Big. Put on your sluttiest dress and enjoy the episode!

003 – Crack Stuntman is a Real Man

Play

We’re back! Eden and Dave are joined my podcast host and namer extraordinaire Sara from HKIP, Fearbaiting, and The Wonder Yeerks. We discuss the Cheat Commando Cartoons, why real people exist in the H*R universe, and several unrelated tangents.

Episode 61: The Opposite of a Cartwheel

Play

You there! Stop having sex! It’s time for Juergen’ It, and we’re all getting tested for STIs! It’s the hot new thing in Los Angeles, and everyone is doing it, except nobody is actually doing it! It’s S03E15, “Who Do You Trust”! Brenda, we appreciate that you’re finally talking about sexual health, but we can’t help but question your motives on this. Meanwhile, Jack continues to get cucked and Grant continues to have no personality. It’s… good? This week, we make a joke we should have made a long time ago… and it’s sweet, sweet, sweet victory.

046 – Have you heard of Mario?

Play

Sam and Sara are drift compatible and piloting a big podcast robot as a two person team this week, and what a week it was. Talking points include: evil internet companies, an impromptu game of movie ball, the wacky president’s new weird thing he said, Jim Acosta – Kung Fu master, Sony steals a thing used for stealing, all covered in a 7 layer bean dip of tangents

Featuring Sam and Sara

Music used:
Evil Men – The Taxpayers
Signed, Sealed, Delivered – The California Raisins

Episode 60: Daisy Duke Nukem

Play

Get your knees a-slappin’, folks, because friend of the show Stephanie from City Girls Make Do is joining us to discuss S03E14, “Rules of Engagement”! I guess the reason last week’s episode was so devoid of plot is because they saved it all for this one! Lots going on here, very little of it good. Two disgraceful teen crimes in this one, and possibly the stupidest thing that has ever happened on the show! (I know, but seriously!) This week, we get our hands on Kathleen Bowman’s famous gnocchi recipe. It’s ggrrant!
