Episode 16: Teachers
Ben Stein, Kevin Spacey, Edna Krabapple. Everyone's got a favorite teacher. Do we give them enough credit? There's plenty of coverage suggesting that they don't get paid enough, but what about those that are supposedly doing it for the good of the students? Are they even getting a pat on the back?

Episode 11: Reaction and Retaliation
A healthy dose of gravity this week, as Chris and Alex dive head first into late 2015's big issues. Caitlyn Jenner's accolades kicks off a discussion about the influence of celebrity, leading to the motivation and mindset surrounding gender identity. Then on the heels of the terrorist attacks in Paris, they take care to be sensitive, while honestly discussing all angles of reaction and retaliation. Where does Patriotism online play into actual response by conflicting ideals? Oh yeah, and of course even though this will go live in November, it's already Christmas, so there are a few words about that.

Episode 10: Halloween
So it turns out that trick-or-treating is pretty much completely safe aside from vehicular manslaughter and diabetes. So throw a sheet over yourself, cut a few eyeholes, and go demand free food from your neighbors. Or, synch that shit around the waist and be a sexy ghost for a special someone. When you're done, hit us up on twitter.com/giantandginger and let us know your costume, what candy you hauled in, and if you had any super-spooky sexy times.

This pumpkin-spiced episode of G&G is not brought to you by Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Rhinegeist, the Legalize It movement, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians (whatever those are exactly). It's brought to you, with love and warmth, by Alex and Chris. Hit us up on Twitter at @giantandginger to let us know: Is pumpkin spice bullshit? What do you call the season before winter? What's the best drink for the season? Do you wear made up things like fairy wings to a festival supposedly devoted to a real period in world history? You holdin'?Oh and side note; latitudinally is totally a word.
