One Bad Mother Episode 208: Putting the "Self" in Selfishness, Plus the Art of Manliness with Brett McKay

One Bad Mother
Brett McKay

Biz and Theresa are beginning to think we aren’t using the word "selfish" right. Wanting time for yourself so you can rest isn’t the same thing as shoving someone out of the lifeboat. As we find ourselves digging into the idea of self-care more and more on the show, we try to figure out this week why it's hard to allow ourselves our own wants and desires. Plus Biz has an unimportant update, Theresa is getting messages and they're coming from within her bra, and we talk to Brett McKay about his book, The Art of Manliness, which, as it turns out, is helpful to parents and non-parents, regardless of gender!

Minority Korner 83: Rip, Roaring, and Ready to Go (Tulsa Race Riot, AIDS Quilt, La Croix, Implicit Bias, Catwoman, and Halle Berry)

mk logo
Minority Korner

There is a meeting in the ladies room, and by ladies room we mean the Bay Area! That's right James is back in the SF Bay Area and our wonder twins are REUNITED!!!! James has come back to the booming trend of La Croix and needs some explanation from Nnekay. We also get to hear about James' flight which involves espionage, implicit bias, dubious toys, and some deep soul searching. We also get into The whole Kathy Griffin vs. Trump controversy. Too good? Too Far? Or Who Cares?! In Nnekay's Korner, she covers the untold story of the Tulsa Race Riot or how she likes to calls it "The Greenwood Massacre" the 1921 historic event which was covered up for decades. James uses his Korner to cover the facts, origin, history, and importance of the AIDS Quilt. Making sure that its purpose, art, and beauty get recognized for years to come and respected by those who may not have experienced it. We also have another Minority Korner Movie Review!!! This time we cover the insanity that is CATWOMAN. A year before Batman Begins came out we had Halle Berry strutting her stuff in the most ridiculous leather outfit ever to grace a superhero. Was this a knockoff of a superhero movie? Did Sharon Stone really have a stone face? Was Halle Berry robbed of an oscar?! All this an more in this week's episode!




Hello Internet! Welcome to another in our impromptu "Summer Fun!" series! This week, ZOOS! What do you do when you see a kid tapping the glass? Can you go to a zoo as a childish adult?

Enjoy and be sure to tell a friend!

Ross and Carrie and the Ozark UFOs (Part 2): Downloaded From Aliens


HEAR YE, HEAR YE! On this, the eighth of June, in the year 2017, "Oh No, Ross and Carrie," reached its hundredth episode! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to everyone who has supported us from the beginning (we know there are lots of you), everyone who has been there since we joined MaxFun, and everyone who just found us for the first time. We love you all! And as a thank-you gift for listening and supporting us, we have a special surprise. From now on, "Oh No, Ross and Carrie" will be a weekly show! Can you believe it?! We kind of can't either. A lot of work goes into this show! But a new format will allow us to bring you more content every week, in slightly smaller bites. You'll get all the same great investigations and bonus interviews; you just get to hear from us more often! And as our moms will tell you, hearing from us more often is ALWAYS APPRECIATED.

So, for our first-ever weekly episode, we give you part two of our Ozark UFO conference tale, where you get to hear all about Linda Moulton Howe, who believes we all live in a computer simulation run by aliens; Grant Cameron, who says all your favorite songs were composed by E.T.s (or angels, or something like that); and Debra Kauble, who says she was abducted onto a flying saucer thirty-four years ago, and has been unpacking the experience ever since. Happy 100th, everyone!

Tights and Fights Ep. 45: Samoa Joe, the contract killer

Danielle, Mike and Hal
Hal Lublin
Danielle Radford
Mike Eagle

Joe’s gonna kill you!

It took a little while, but Samoa Joe is officially in the main event spotlight, where he deserves to be! He’ll face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship… and probably lose, but for right now, this is AWESOME!

Plus, what ever happened with Bayley? How did the RAW women’s division get to be such a rudderless ship?

On the flip side, we think Smackdown’s women’s division is looking great! They’ve got a shiny new Money in the Bank briefcase to fight over AND they’ve just debuted Lana as a title contender. We’ll explain why we’re on board.

Main Event:

Out of WWE’s 13 titles across all of its respective brands, only one of them is portrayed as a hero or babyface. Does the WWE have a problem with creating compelling good guys? And just what makes for an effective crowd-favorite these days?

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over the release of Tekken 7, starring characters from New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Mike put over the newest episode of Corny’s driv-thru..

Hal put over the latest episode of Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard.
