Season 2, Ep 4: It’s Not An Ending

10/4/2021

Season 2, Ep 3: Where’s Your Daddy?

9/27/2021
We can’t tell you much in the episode description without giving things away, so we’ll give you this: there’s a promo for a sitcom we’re pitching to Netflix, there are guest interviews that will restore your love of humanity, plus a whole new song to get your groove back! But is there a cliffhanger? People, please. It’s what we do.

Season 2, Ep 2: Who’s Your Daddy, Part 2

9/20/2021
After the cliffhanger in the last episode, it’s time to go deep and find out exactly what happens when Michael knocks on Daddy’s door. You’ll hear more recordings from the road, interviews with Michael’s family when they learn the news of what went down, and you’ll find out what will happen next. Let’s just say we’re not done with cliffhangers on this show and it doesn’t end with us going back home to Portland – stay tuned until the end!

Season 2, Ep 1: Who’s Your Daddy, Part 1

9/13/2021
In our Season 2 debut, Michael and Lanie fly to Florida, survey the swamp scene, do a live performance in Delray Beach, get hammered, and set out to find Daddy – all in the first 48 hours. We’re not just re-telling these stories in the studio, either! You’ll hear recordings from the road, because let’s be honest, hearing stories about drunk people can be funny, but hearing stories FROM people while they’re drunk is where the comedy gold is buried. This episode even includes an original song...

Season 2 Teaser

We’ve stitched together excerpts from our first few episodes of Season 2, including interviews, special guests and drunken travelogues to give you a sneak peek before we return next week! We’ve even dropped a few clues – do you think you can figure out what happened on our big trip? Send us a message on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and tell us your theories, and be sure to tell everyone you know to get caught up so you’re ready for the cliffhanger at the end of the Season 2, Episode 1...

Ep8: And You Brought Me Home

7/6/2021
Is it possible for the Season One finale to be both a great cliffhanger AND the most satisfying resolution to our story you could imagine? Listen all the way to the very end and then write us at thefirstmichaelpodcast@gmail.com and tell us if we nailed it. To be honest, we know we did, but we want to hear you say it. At length, please. Lanie and Michael are on the cusp of their fateful trip to find… you know who, and it’s time to start working through some scenarios of how this might play...

Ep7: Queen of Shining Light, part II

6/29/2021
If there’s one thing we love on this podcast, it’s episodes that are sequels to other episodes. Also, wieners, we love those, too. Anyway, if you’ve been paying attention, you know that Michael has, like, twice as many moms as most people, but they’re all dead, so the whole thing is a real mixed bag for him. The dead mom in this episode is Elaine, but we’ll mostly be talking about the parts where she was alive and making us laugh our asses off. Will there be tears? Perhaps a few, but this...

Ep6 :The Wicked Twist, Part II

6/22/2021
Michael is no longer a precocious tyke in this episode, he’s a teenager. Now that the Devil isn’t trying to tempt him to steal gingerbread cookies, will life get easier for our intrepid hero? Or will puberty, wieners, body hair, locker rooms and a cute new boy at school make things, uhh… harder? We’re also edging ever closer to Michael and Lanie departing for their fateful trip, so be sure to stay caught up and don’t forget to send us your stories of first crushes to...

Ep5: Small Town Boy

6/15/2021
The Big City Buonocores move from Brooklyn to small town Buckley, Washington, and it’s a bit of a crash landing for Michael. While his mother is glad to be away from the dangers of city life and his father is charmed by their rural surroundings, our young hero is not so thrilled. First of all, there are spiders and bees and an entirely unnecessary amount of nature. Second of all, the big source of entertainment in town is the Logger’s Rodeo. Who rodeos logs? Why is there a feed store...

Ep4: The Wicked Twist Part 1

6/8/2021
Remember all that stuff in episode 1 about how Michael is the Perfect Goodheart, the Chosen One sent from God? Prepare to have your world rocked when you find out the Devil has his hooks in him. We’ll travel back in time to Brooklyn in the 1970’s, when Satan was very actively possessing the children of Catholic parents, as we all know from the horror films of that era. Get ready for some laughs as young Michael tries to keep Lucifer at bay; you might want to have some holy water handy. And...

Ep3: Queen of Shining Light Part 1

6/8/2021
Michael’s whirlwind journey to meet his new family members nets him two “Welcome to the Family” cakes, so he’s feeling really good about the whole situation. He’ll never get to meet his birth mom, Regina, but he does have some journal entries she wrote about his birth. Michael shares some of these writings in this episode and you might want to have some tissues nearby. Lanie went through ten of them in the studio. We’ll all get through it together.

Ep2: How Much Sibling Do You Need?

6/8/2021
In this episode, Michael learns to juggle the exponential sibling growth in his life and finally finds out if that thing he’s been dealing with all his life is a French thing or some other kind of… thing. We learn that the podcast is not just called “The First Michael” for reasons discussed in the debut episode, but for an additional reason. If exploring the reasons behind the name of a podcast doesn’t sound riveting to you, you’re a jerk, and you’ll be real sorry when you find out the other...
