It’s the movie that thinks autism is the secret to becoming a John Wick-style super-killer, The Accountant. Meanwhile Elliott details Randy Newman’s difficulty with dirty rhymes, Dan exhausts his knowledge of Zurich, Stuart hates Cheerios, and we all make some probably ill-advised jokes about the murder of Jean Smart.

Minority Korner

It is our 2nd year anniversary and boy do we have some presents for you! First up is it hot, or is it just these hot, hot, HAWT Topics! So much to discuss that we haven't had a change to! James Comey- let's hold up before we give this man that ruined the election a parade. The Cosby Ms. Trial- Oy Vey what is up with jury's AND the Philando Castile trial??? Meanwhile another trigger happy cop shot and killed a pregnant Black woman. Elizabeth Banks demonstrates the case for more white feminism, along with Sofia Coppola's latest film that forgets Slavery was a thing back in the confederacy. Beyonce had twins! Phew! Over in the Korner's Nnekay pricks up her feud with JuneTeenth but flips and reverses it, with this way you can truly reclaim this holiday, and some land, as we Black folks still await our 40 acres and a mule. James tackles the controversy of a new Pride flag that was revealed and gives you the history of the flag, along with his two cents. I mean you know him, he's going to give you at least 5 cents. Plus! Queen Sugar has got James WOKE to the Farmer's struggle! Join us for our 2 year anniversary extravaganza!!!

Ross and Carrie and the Ozark UFOs (Part 4): Betty Hill and the Great Dick Drawing

| 0 comments

The Ozark Mountain UFO Conference keeps delighting, with a talk from retired nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, who lends extra scientific credibility to the world of ufology. Then, we continue to the speakers' dinner, where presenter Grant Cameron regales us with information about President Trump, dimensional portals, and a mysterious L.A. filmmaker who is going to blow disclosure wide open. Plus, Ross goes searching for aliens (or owls) while Carrie goes searching for sleep.

Wow, what a week it’s been.

The WWE decided that the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank match should be won by James Ellsworth. Well, not really, he won it on behalf of Carmella. But was having Ellsworth climb the ladder, retrieve that briefcase and taking the spotlight from the women good heel heat or a bridge too far? We’ll talk about it.

Plus, there were a ton of other things that happened: The men’s Money in the Bank match! Cass turning on Enzo! Baron Corbin’s tummy! So let’s dive right in.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

One Bad Mother Episode 210: What Will It Take To Get You Into Some Self-Care Today?, Plus Kazoo Magazine

Biz and Theresa wonder what needs to happen, how much money it would take, how many magic wishes we’d need or who’s permission needs to be given for us to actually commit to self-care. Is 100 magic wishes enough? Maybe the actual self-care we are looking for isn’t a physical act, but instead an internal one. Or maybe we just need to go out for milk…in the Bahamas. Plus Biz is getting the band back together, Theresa can't get the splinter out and we talk to Erin Bried, founder and Editor in Chief of the awesome magazine for girls, Kazoo!

Hello my sweetest honey bunny money! Happy Summer! Did you know that the female Supreme Court justices are 3 times more likely to be interrupted than their male colleagues? Believe it. Also, a brave Mormon girl comes out in front of her congregation and is shut down by adult men with bad wigs. And finally, Fast Company pop culture editor Joe Berkowitz takes us through his new book AWAY WITH WORDS and the dark world of pun competitions. Now that's what I call purrrfect. Is that a pun?
