Newfangled Vehicles - #2111-2 | Car Selling Secrets #117
Back after a 6 week hiatus. We discuss Tesla potentially taking the US Luxury Sales crown, bad boys pulling over people in a cop car, Earl Butz as the first victim of the cancel culture, the Presidency of Jimmy Carter and the return of the VW micro-bus.....this time, it's electric.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Susan Smith Jones - #2111-1
On this show, we're not known for being calm. Susan, AKA Dr. Smith Jones, is an expert at calmness. Meditation, mindfulness, all that kind of thing. Today could be considered her ultimate challenge. Not only does she have to convince Tom to calm down, but Gelfand too. Step 1: no more cable news. They say the first step is the hardest part. You have no idea.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Kill Switch - #2110-2
How do you kill a car? A rocket launcher? Maybe some thermite? Wrong. It's the future, and everything is done with computers now. If the police don't like the fact that you're going 100 in a 50, they just press a button and your days of freedom are over. Surely such a system could never be abused. The good news is that while you're in prison you can get a Peloton, which will simulate the outdoors for you and keep you in shape while you do it. If that sounds like a dystopian hell to you, then you clearly haven't gotten with the times lately.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Alan R. Warren - #2110-1
Why do people join cults? Even better question: why do people kill themselves because a cult leader says so? Seems like a pretty bad decision on its face. It turns out that loneliness and lack of a sense of belonging is a tough lot, and if it gets bad enough you can be convinced to do anything as long as they promise to make it all go away. That's why at The Family we never promise to make you feel better. We don't want to be mistaken for a cult.

Immune - #2109-2
There's a cool new way to not have to worry about COVID any more: get it. Get it, recover from it, and don't think about it ever again. Well, at least until the next variant. As long as you keep a Catch 'Em All attitude you should be fine. And if you die, then you'll have the peace of the grave, so ether way you won't have to hear about this crap any more. It's a win-win.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Beyond Impossible - #2109-1
Is eating meat wrong? Don't answer. It's unlikely we'll resolve this millennia-old debate by having you talk to a block of text on your screen. What we do know is that between Beyond Meat and the Impossible Burger, you have all the choices in the world. But just like everything else that seems good, it's actually bad. Or is it? It depends on who you ask. That's the new way of things. Nothing can just be a good thing.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

A New Meaning To "Deflategate" - #2108-2
The football world is being taken by storm. Not by football, but by a little blue pill. Before you get too excited, it's for improving circulation. Wink. Regardless of its alleged use, comedians couldn't be happier, for one fairly obvious reason. Wait, that could be taken the wrong way. Actually, we'll leave it. This episode is already mostly double entendres anyway.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

John O'Connor - #2108-1
They say that democracy dies in darkness. And by "they" I mean the Washington Post. Which is quite ironic, because few outlets are less reliable. Apparently that's not a new thing either: according to John, they've been covering up the truth since at least Watergate. That was a long time ago. Unless you're old enough to remember it, in which case that wasn't long ago at all, don't worry about that.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Moon Pjugg and Hobbs- Viva Las Vegas
Our 1st guest of the year is someone who has lived in Vegas for a long time. We address the shootings at Mandalay Bay, the Superbowl, and big ass prime rib for 3.99! If you've been to Vegas you know what happens there stays there. If not learn a little then book a flight!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Horse Betting Secrets - #2107-2 | Car Selling Secrets #116
Car Selling Secrets is back. Well, kind of. Doug isn't here. And we never talk about cars. But we're calling it Car Selling Secrets, so it still counts. Also, horses were basically the first kind of car. The topic is in the same ballpark, at least. And speaking of ballparks, don't you just hate athletes? Let's talk about that for a solid half hour.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Dave Combs - #2107-1
If you're over a certain age - and not a very old one at that - you probably remember elevator music. It was so ubiquitous that it became universally reviled, and now we're left with silence. You don't know what you've got until it's gone, as they say. Dave Combs wrote one of the songs you may have heard during a vertical journey, called Rachel's Song. You also almost definitely don't know the song's name, so we played it during this hour. Maybe after hearing it again you'll lobby your local congressman to make it illegal to not play elevator music in every elevator. Now that's a political cause we can get behind.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Kay Rothman - #2106-2
A Haunting is back on Discovery+, and you know what that means. It means, you know, ghosts and stuff. But it also means philosophy. Humanity has been fascinated with the afterlife for our entire history, and probably even earlier than that. Whether it's religious, spiritual, or neither, we've been trying to cope with death, to measure the unmeasurable, and to prove the existence of ghosts. It always goes back to ghosts.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Stephen Cyrus Sepher - #2106-1
Whenever a movie has the word "dead" in the title, you know it's not a good thing for the characters in it. To further add to the misfortune, Stephen plays a mercenary named Gator. Would you want a guy named Gator hunting you down? On the bright side, the hunt would probably be very entertaining for people watching. You know, like a movie audience. Crack open a cold one and watch the chaos unfold. It's fun when you're on our side of the screen.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Mall Rats - #2105-2
No, we're not talking about kids who hang around malls. They don't exist any more. All that's left is literal rats, living in the abandoned husks of what were once thriving teen hangouts. It looks like movie theaters will be heading the same way, sadly. Every generation has its own thing, and you can't expect anything, no matter how big of a cultural mainstay, to stick around. Except this podcast. We'll be around forever.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Public Service Announcement - #2105-1
Here at The Family, we stand against racism. We also stand against diversity training. Just leave us the hell alone. We're not going to leave you alone though, at least if you're a smoker. We don't want to be preached to, but we will tell you how to live because we know better. Oh crap, we're starting to sound like corporate America. I guess it happens to everyone eventually.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Empty House - #2104-2
It looks like Biden was right; this really is the winter of death. Not for the population at large, but for beloved actors. This time it's Bob Saget, who died of as of yet unknown circumstances at the age of 65. Mysteriously, the Vikings also died on the field despite being neither actors nor beloved. Well, I guess the Vikings sucking isn't exactly "mysterious".See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Pha’rez Lass - #2104-1
Until today, we've never had a real life Crip on the show. And we still haven't. We have, however, had someone that played one on TV. He plays P-Dog on Mayor of Kingstown, which is apparently a pretty good gig. He seems pretty happy about it, at least. I guess pretending to be a murderer in prison is more fun than actually being one. Who knew?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Reverend Tim Christopher - #2103-2
You've probably heard Tom talk about the class divide in America. How the real issue is the poor, middle class, and upper class all hating one another. You may not have taken him seriously because he's not a reverend. Well today that all changes, because Reverend Tim has a lot to say, and it's all what we've been saying for many years at this point. And now that it's being said by a man of God, you have to listen, right? That's how it works.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Jeremy Dauber - #2103-1
The golden age of comics was a long time ago. Even the silver age is decades past. You could argue that we're in the bronze age right now, although things have transformed beyond recognition. There are still comics printed on paper, but they're not nearly as popular as they were in days past. These days it's all movies and TV shows. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? It's the same characters, the same stories, even a lot of the same creators still. But there's just something about opening that Sunday paper and seeing your favorite comic that anyone under the age of 30 probably has never experienced. Nostalgia is a powerful force.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
