Ep. 7 - Spring Fever 2020
Experience our desperate hope for spring as we transition from wintertime cabin fever to government mandated isolation. Alyssa reviews top tier Midwest groundhogs (a.k.a. woodchucks a.k.a. whistle pigs a.k.a. ???). Megan reveals the varied and lurid associations of maple syrup. Hannah tries and fails to keep everyone on task discussing spring holidays and instead lays the groundwork for a cult. Share your own names for groundhogs and exciting new religious figures with us on social media! We are @midwestisbestshow on all platforms.

Ep. 6 - Snowshoes and Porcupines
In this episode, we cover winter activities to get you out of the house and into the limited sunlight that winter provides. Megan talks rocks and clarifies Grumpy Old Men set details, Hannah shares another weird field trip and contemplates her own mortality, and Alyssa coins a new insult while discussing ice fishing. And like winter in the Midwest, this one feels kind of dark. Thank you to Cullah, a Midwestern artist, for releasing music under Creative Commons, thereby providing us with theme music!
