about the third Saturday in October. (w/ Sheena Laird)
Our friend Sheena stopped by (pre COVID) with the cutest lil' idiom, "smoke 'em if you got 'em". High school tobacco use, almost setting a second fire at Second City Chicago, sleep studies, and tik tok moms.

about basic algebra. (w/ H Schenck)
Does anyone even know what day it is anymore? Our friend H Schenck stopped by to talk about the epigram "you can't see the forest for the trees". Also we now know the word "epigram"!

about the Swamp of Sadness. (w/ Marley)
Our friend Marley stopped by (pre shelter-in-place)to help us work through the quote "how can you love someone if you don't love yourself?" Remember back when we could leave our homes? This is a really weird and scary time for all of us. We wanted to let you know that this and the next 3 episodes were all recorded before this mess began. We really hope you are all staying safe, healthy, and at home. If you have the means, please think about donating to your local artists, theaters, or small businesses that have been affected. xx

about classroom posters. (with/ E.J. Cameron)
Our friend E.J. Cameron (@ej_cam19) stopped by to discuss the insane physics behind the quote “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land amongst the stars.” We reminisce about the good ole days of facebook, how to make inspirational posters more relatable, and lots of bad and (probably) wrong statements on physics.

about recording children's songs.
Our friend Jax came over this week to discuss... a lyric?! Technically yes. Did you know “Que Sera Sera” is just gibberish nonsense written for an Alfred Hitchcock film? We talk verbal placeholders, the Loch Ness Monster, and listening to friends.

about science. (w/ Justin Strandlund)
Our friend Justin (@justin_mikel) came over to discuss the quote “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” Once the word genius was explained to Ali, the conversation really got rolling. As it turns out, men have been taking credit for women’s words since at least the late 1800s. Who knew?!

Our friend Rose came by to talk about the expression "When in Rome..." Whew.

about peaking in middle school. (w/ Kat Wertzler)
Wow wow wow episode eleven! We get together with our friend Kat (@honest.wedding) to discuss the quote "It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission". We truly go on an emotional rollercoaster that only ended after we talked in circles, lost our voices, and collectively collapsed from exhaustion.

about biopics. (w/ Scott Gantner)
Our friend Scott “The Snack” Gantner (@hotpantsner) came over and we got into a HUGE fight about Mr. Rogers. We haven't spoken since.

about Disney Villains. (w/ Zyle Cook)
This week we throw conventional sayings and cliches out the window and discuss Hays Code with the brilliant Zyle Cook (@zybxrg) How in the actual hell did a big clump of rules become so pervasive, we still see their effects now, 50 years after their abolition? Maybe this riddle will give you a clue: What's white and male and loves a pulpit?

IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?? Yes. Yes there is. That's right folks, a real live Doctor sat down to talk to us and all we managed to do is embarrass ourselves by referencing Grey's Anatomy multiple times.
