169: Bicycle Music

Steve Allen is nothing if not prolific, first run syndication analysis, the local TV Star Trek arms race, un-Dude Data, the sitcom about little pink man with the blunt proboscis, Small Wonder couldn't eat in the first two seasons, steaming hot wash cloths at the Port Authority, bicycle music, and a tiny insect with flatulence.

168: Slices Without

Authentic Canadian recipes, mushroom journeys, we talk sizzle pies, the French invasion, an erlenmayer flask of bubbling liquid, the like of shitty tomatoes, Willem Dafoe's culinary career, and the rationale for shoving a single Lego piece up your nose.

167: Brad Goes To The Movies

It's not like flapping the Polaroid, Ladybird teases out memory pixels, reflections on Brad's ignorance, The snobby connection to the overlapping coffee and film Venn diagram, regular laws and irregular mutton chop eyebrows, and the sun hides nothing while giving the side eye to an entire metropolis.
