Damnit. Well, here it is I guess. Ok, ok, there’s actually some good parts in here that you’ll want to listen to. Some wonderful listeners shared heartwarming and heartbreaking stories about prom experiences. Jen made Micah watch the first and last episodes of season 8, the final season, of Full House. You’ll have to listen next week to see if he’ll ever forgive her.
Jen jumps back into some Montana stuff this week based on some listener questions, specifically the transition from therapeutic boarding school to college, and from Kool-Aid drinker to reality.
Oh, and we also talked about Star Trek: Voyager and we sure did a bad job talking about space stuff. Watch out for quantum singularities and hop onboard!
Whatcha gonna do? You’re gonna join us for our episode on 1995’s Bad Boys, that’s what. We get deep into the real issues in this one, such as: Why *does* Michael Bay make movies? What *is* the right way to use the phrase “yada yada?” And *why* isn’t this movie funnier?
We haven’t talked about Montana for a couple weeks but we’ll get into some listener questions next week!
We got to talk to our friends Diana and David about Weezer’s triple-platinum debut album: Weezer, or The Blue Album, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love — nevermind, that’s a lie. The world is a dumpster fire, but this album is really good and it was so much fun to talk to Diana and David about one of their favorite albums!
We interviewed Ken Marino! Seriously! And he was absolutely delightful. He was gracious and patient and funny and honest and curious and sincere and we can’t express how appreciative we are and how honored we are that we got to speak with him. Jen and Micah asked all the hard-hitting questions, didn’t hold anything back, and definitely didn’t gush over him at all. Plus, he took his pants off not once but TWICE within the first minute of our conversation, so.
Not only did we get the back story on The State, but we got to talk about his other work and even delved into topics such as parenting and politics. (In fact, we talked for so long that we had to cut some parts and those will be available to our patrons on Patreon!) AND because Ken is such a beautiful angel of a man, he expressed a genuine interest in Jen’s Montana story, so this is also a good Montana episode!
