206: Old Men Talking

A terrific and sad read about Ichiro Suzuki. Jon suggests the Star Wars Force Bands for the Sphero. The OP-1 keyboard from Teenage Engineering looks pretty cool, but expensive. Their Pocket Operators are pretty cool, too, at $50. This thread that started with a girl who likes Star Wars is terrific. Back in the day, we had to rely on toys like The StarBird. Jon had the Magnavox Odyssey and Moltz had the Fairchild Channel F. The Big Trak is probably the closest '70s analog to the...

Lex's wife Lauren was once made over on Queer Eye For the Straight Girl. Armstrong loves the Triple Jump. Our thanks to CanvasPeople.com, a really easy to use...

Jon speaks highly of Black Panther. What type of flu do you have? Should a kid with rumpled hair and pants too small for him raise red flags? The Olympics feature the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Leslie Jones's Olympics twitter coverage is the thrill of victory. McSweeney's asks that you please not get murdered at school today. Our thanks to Perfume.com for sponsoring this episode.

This year's flu is pretty gnarly. If you get it, what should you do? Look beautiful, of course. Jon suggests NeilMed, presumably made by guys named Neil. Does your baby have snot? Just suck it out.

No Armstrong this week but Lex and Moltz talk about snow, skiing and air travel. Moltz blew his buffer and couldn't remember the name of Whistler. Despite Moltz's belief that they're falling out of the sky left and right, air travel was extraordinarily safe in 2017. Support for this episode comes from Health IQ.

195: Have a Nice Xmas

Jon and Moltz have enjoyed a little move called Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Moltz recommends the holiday song Fairytale of New York even though it has a slur in it. Lex is partial to Wonderful Christmastime. One of Jon's favorites is Darlene Love's version of Christmas (Baby Please Come). Liam makes a plea for a podcast explaining Christian holidays. The Santa Clause trilogy (yes, it's apparently a trilogy) is actually pretty dark. Someone is going to be enjoying the Sphero R2-D2 this...

Moltz recalls the old ads for Raceway Park. Please pick up some fine Fireball products at Target. Lots of people suffer from stage fright. Only one has thrown up in Moltz's driveway. If you wanted to buy any of us a Mac Pro as a holiday gift we probably wouldn't say no. Lex's kids play Prodigy which is not this Prodigy.

Moltz is hoping to get a Tacoma Rainiers hat for Christmas. Talking to your kids about Matt Lauer. We discuss Slater-Kinney and Carrie Brownstein. The Day After was not exactly the feel-good hit of the summer back in 1983. Zombieland is also apocalyptic but decidedly more fun. We hear good things about Coco. Sad to hear that John Lasseter is also a predator. Things in the world a pretty bad but the Avengers: Infinity War trailer is great. Our thanks to Fathead, makers of durable...

Jon makes a reference to the seminal movie Conan the Barbarian. Secret Hitler could be a good game for your kids. Or, perhaps, the great taste of Prongles if you can find some. Lex's daughter is reading some Judy Blume books. Jon's kids wanted to watch Annie but couldn't. Lex recommends Wonder if you want to bawl your eyes out. The Logan doll does not come with retractable claws. Moltz never finished his story about watching Nurse Betty on a plane but his point was there's a grizzly...
