Ep 33 - Asking For Directions
We all have a favorite actor (which is, of course, Jason Statham).. Sometimes, we'll even have a favorite studio. But people don't often consider the importance of directors, who have to dictate just how a scene plays out, and how characters should react to said scene. For that reason, Mort and Kate take some time to get... *ahem*... "Animated" (that joke will make sense in a bit, trust us) about their favorite director.And... Action!

Ep 29 Bad Daddies (Wink)
Hey, kids. Mort here. Kate had a description, but I decided to rewrite it because I want to talk to you about bad daddies. That's right, I said bad daddies. For this special Father's day episode, Mort and Kate discuss some real naughty daddies, and- What? We were absent for Father's Day? Well, I mean, it's symbolic and stuff. Apple and tree and stuff. Great. Now I'm too depressed to make this sexy. Just... just enjoy the episode.

Ep. 28 - Pride
It's that special time of the year. No, not National Candy Month. I mean, yes, it is National Candy Month, but that's not super important. Stop pouting. Brush your teeth. It's Pride Month, the time of year where the LGBT community are able to stand in the spotlight, free from fear of ostracization and prejudice, free to be who they are, free to love as they were meant to love. But just where did Pride come from? As with every group of minorities, the LGBT community has faced its fair share of trials and tribulations. Join Mort and Kate as they discuss the origins of Pride, as well as some helpful tips for anyone choosing to attend a Pride parade, whether you're LGBT, or a caring ally.For more info on Mort's story, visit this website: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/stonewall-participants/

Monsters, Part 1
For a race that is trying its hardest to survive, we sure do enjoy thinking up things to torment and destroy us. Nuclear weapons, Justin Bieber, Yoga, Big Foot… Yeah, that’s right. Big Foot. Over the years, mankind has created more than a few mythical creatures to delight and terrify. So many, in fact, that we felt the need to teach you about some of them. Join Kate and Mort as they take a look at a few of the imaginative beasts that haunt our dreams. Then let us know what you think! Do you want more monsters? Or do you struggle enough with sleep?

Ep. 24 Celts and Cameras
"It's a man's world". Or so says James Brown. It's often easy to forget the women that have a great impact in our history. Sure, we all know about Joan D'arc and Mother Teresa, but what about the others? What about the lesser known women that we don't even hear about? On this first episode of Topics and Tangents, Mort and Kate educate listeners on two important female figures that the American School system may have forgotten about, but we sure haven't.

Ep. 23 - Ernest Goes To War
Why, hello, Canada. You're looking great today. Of course, you always look great, don't you? Oh, don't worry, we're not here to make fun of you. No sir, absolutely not. What? No, it's not because we just googled Ernest Alvia "Smokey" Smith. Nor is it because his complete disdain for authority and his predisposition for murdering every Nazi ever makes him absolutely terrifying. Kat and Mort are just here to educate you, that's all. So enjoy this episode, Canada. Please?

Ep. 22 Lemming Some Sugar, I Am Your Neighburra
Animals: There more than what's for dinner. Sometimes, they're entertaining characters in a documentary. Sometimes they're terrifying nightmares (thanks, Australia!). Whatever they are, you can be sure that Mort and Kate will be there to give you the scoop on all members of the Animal Kingdom, big or small (or digital).

We know what you’re thinking. “A short episode? What the heck?” Relax. Great things come in small packages (at least, that's what Mort tells everyone). Did you know that Pong was not the first video game? Did you know that televisions were invented in 1922? How about the fact that A&W has a breakfast menu… that isn’t very good? This is but the tip of the iceberg of what you’ll learn in this short (ish) episode in which Mort educates a very reluctant Ricky in one country’s reaction to a genre of music that is by no means spoiled by the title of the episode. At all.

Ep. 20 - Ain't No Holland Back Girl
NEW YEAR (kinda), WHO DIS? Kate and Mort are looking at making some changes to Wait, What?, and they want YOU to let them know what you’re wanting to hear. With that in mind, the two try out a new format this week: No guests, two (mini) topics, same sense of humor (or lack thereof). This episode, it’s a double whammy of landmarks in Holland. Next episode, who knows? Actually, Mort knows, but he isn’t telling. We’ll have to get back to you.
