047 “The Goldfish Proxy” John is wearing a poodle skirt, and the duo talk fighting loud music on subways, tax evaders, and cat messaging. Hummingbird drones and goldfish simplicity solve world issues in a round of “If Animals Ruled the World”, and Elsie gets attacked while offering the wine-themed chocolate End of Show Food. Guest: Minimalist, artist, comedian and filmmaker Marty Stano discusses his approach to life, his TedTalk, AwesomeFeet project, and a piano on the river!
048 “The Horrible Game” In an accidentally UK-themed episode, Marc and John talk embarrassingly bad national anthem singing, the origins of “The Star Spangled Banner” as a British drinking song, revisit RocPodfest 2014 and play a new game “Recasted” which fails miserably. Plus an idea for a board game about impressions and a Guinness-themed End of Show Food rescue the show in the nick of time.
052 “If William Shatner Was In Charge of the World” John’s in a sequined gown for disco school, we cover the laws of standing in line, sex robots and solar roads, a networking scavenger hunt, Marc’s new obsession with car crash videos, a special Shatner-themed version of the classic improv game “If I Was in Charge of the World” and Elsie’s back to sweets with a red white and yellow inspired candy in End of Show Food. Special guest: corporate strategist, executive consultant, and motivational speaker Hellen Davis on how to be the best of the best.
053 “No Lemons” A nice, compact show for once — with lots of problems: bad yoga, boring meteor showers, poorly-timed jokes, John’s World, a shocking absence at the supermarket, plane crash gawking, a telemarketer interrupts the show, and a new impromptu problem-solving game “Lemonade” goes sour. Plus Elsie tries to blow our socks off and create lighting in a bottle with a super interesting sweet and healthy End of Show Food.
054 “Popeye Arms” We celebrate “Slavic Clown Day” with costumes and everything! We talk Star Trek tribute shows, finding broken records, old audio formats, a national anthem is unearthed, hologram phones, Marc’s gross clown-size elbow, and John’s wife Doreen joins in for a brand new game “The Truth Fairy”! Plus Elsie brings more End of Show Food!
058 BONUS SHOW “Audible” In this compact episode, Marc and Elsie are on the beach during a road trip for the July 4th weekend. They cover the Opie and Anthony Radio Show Twitter and firing scandal, Elsie’s bikini, they do impressions, reminisce road trips and play a round of the hybrid improv game “If Arnold (Schwarzenegger) Were In Charge of the World” along with more fun!
060 “No Service” In this Elsie-less episode John deals with three steaks and a widow next door with dementia. Marc regales a tale of drinks with former co-host Ben riddled with customer service fiascoes. They cover restaurant tipping, sixteenth century social media and stumble through a game of “Finish My Sentence”.
