It's movie season and the awards have been handed out. Mike and McD break down two of the season's most popular movies: Bohemian Rhapsody and Free Solo. Shockingly, there's a debate between the two conventioNOT co-hosts that spans everything from personal relationships with homosexuality to whether Red Bull should offer payouts to squirrel suit accident victims.

Arguing With Fools

4/15/2019
More
Mike and McD steer away from politics when it comes to the show. It's too messy and doesn't age well for the episodes and their archives. We blur that line a bit in this one, analyzing some political strategies like wagging the dog, avoiding arguments with fools and the risk of judging books by the cover. Ryan's infatuation with Trap Music, tattoos and pop culture also come up in the episode and 2Chainz declines his interview after Mike's comments about his educational record. We are on...

The Missed Economics of Education

2/26/2019
More
Mike and Ryan both come from families of educators and were very much shaped by their experiences together at Michigan State University. This episode gets deep into the risk and rewards of higher education, if you're so lucky. The guys also talk about their favorite comedians and what it must be like if making people laugh is what makes one happy. This certainly isn't censorship. We're unsure if this particular episode is good for a person approaching college - but we're excited to hear...
