The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

10/13/2019
More
A man with no head riding a horse. What could be scarier than that?? Nothing, that's what. This week we talk about one of the scariest stories ever published: Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It's got the Headless Horseman, a goofball named Ichabod Crane, a surprising amount of long passages describing food and, because it was written in the 1800s, some inexcusable racism.

Everybody's favorite half-boy/half-spider is back in theaters and we're talkin' about him! And not just the new movie, either (no spoilers until the end, with fair warning).

Ballparks

More
Like the famous song says, "Take me out to the ballpark" and this week that's exactly what we're doing: we're taking you, the listener to the ballpark. Don't worry if you don't like sports, a day at the ballpark is about much more than watching some silly game. For example, sometimes you get a bobblehead doll and you can usually buy a large helmet full of nachos for slightly less than $20. We also solve a problem from a woman who thinks her interns need a wakeup call. This episode is...

Elton John

6/2/2019

You’re the one who won’t still be standing when you listen to this week’s episode all about Sir Elton Hercules John. We haven’t seen the new movie about him but we didn’t need to because we already knew a bunch of stuff about him. Also we should probably warn you that a good chunk of this episode is about his bitter arch-rivalry with Elton John’s sworn frenemy Billy Joel.
