Hello babies!

Have you seen long bear? The legs are quite long. Get one for a significant other before they sell out! On today’s episode, Lisa discovers a new slime teen and one of Emily’s favorite ASMR artists returns. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Agnodice,” supposedly the first female midwife or physician in ancient Athens. We welcome TV writer Chris Marcil, who has brought in some of his favorite out of print books to show off. On Expert Hour, we are joined by commercial airline pilot and weatherperson Dumb Johnson.

Hello babies!

Hope you’re having a very spooktacular season! Lisa had a creepy experience recently, but not the fun kind of creepy. Emily preps her Halloween costume. If you’re a long time fan of the show, you’ll recognize it immediately! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Athletics at the 1904 Summer Olympics – Men's marathon.” We welcome comedian/actor/writer John Early, who has some thoughts about the 2015 Meryl Streep film Ricki and the Flash. On Expert Hour, we are joined by St. Louis native Mary Merry, who is excited to share her original Super Bowl party appetizer recipes. Quite timely!

Hello babies!

What is your word of the year? We have a few fun and totally not sad options for this year. Emily has a weird, creepy experience with some curtains. Curtains aren’t supposed to do that! Lisa gets a terrible DM on Instagram. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “List of premature obituaries.” A premature obituary is an obituary published whose subject is not actually deceased at the time of publication. Who knew not dying could be so fun? We welcome “writer” Jess Dweck who had a particularly bad Airbnb experience. On Expert Hour, we are joined by Ricky Tarps, who gives us some creative pointers on how to eat on a budget.

Hello babies!

Lisa is finally getting around to watching The Sopranos in its entirety, so we’re finally getting around to discussing how James Gandolfini is actually kind of hunky. Well, specifically, when he was alive. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Republic of Molossia,” a micronation in the United States founded by Kevin Baugh (b. July 30, 1962) and headquartered at his home near Dayton, Nevada. Road trip, anyone? We welcome musician Patty Schemel, who had an interesting mole related experience recently. On Expert Hour, we are joined by actor and environmentalist Ed Begley Jr, who teaches us a few ways to help us lead greener lives.

Hello babies!

Maybe this is actually our five year anniversary show? I’m a little confused. Anyways, Emily celebrated a different anniversary recently by staying at the Disneyland hotel and accomplishing the impossible: eating the correct amount of edibles. Lisa recently watched The Craft (1996) and got nightmares. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Frozen Dead Guy Days," an annual celebration held in the town of Nederland, Colorado, to loosely celebrate the 1994 discovery of the cryonic statecorpse of Bredo Morstoel. We welcome Lindy West, who has the very continental Gilbert's Syndrome. On Expert Hour, we are joined by Hollywood's #1 party boy Chud Cubner.

Hello babies!

It’s our five year anniversary episode! Won’t you come celebrate with us? The traditional five year anniversary gift is wood. We’re registered at iTunes, please give us a five star review and just leave us your favorite kind of wood (mahogany, birch, etc). No gross jokes please! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Cobra Effect." This is surprisingly not about a Steven Segal movie! We welcome Eliot Glazer, who watches The View more than anyone really should. On Expert Hour, we are joined by fan favorite guest Jacob Jasmine to give us more etiquette tips.

Hello babies!

Emily is doing some shows in Texas this week! If you’re in the general vicinity of Texas make it a point to check her out and let her make you laugh! Is the brown noise real? On that note, when was the last time you laughed so hard you peed your pants? Was it this decade? Have you ever made someone pee their Levi’s? On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Margaret Howe Lovatt,” a volunteer naturalist from Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands, who took part in a NASA-funded research project in which she attempted to teach a dolphin named Peter to understand and mimic human speech. She used some unconventional methods in attempt to achieve her goal. We welcome Demi Adejuyigbe, who tells us the tale of Lincoln’s grave robbers. On Expert Hour, we are joined by brand consultant James Courtneay-Breadwich.

Hello babies!

Have you seen Emily on tour this summer? Go do it if you live near a city! Have you bought a Ban Chunch shirt yet? Go buy one, unless you live somewhere that doesn’t have a post office. In that case, you probably have other things to worry about. On today’s episode, we struggle with impulse control. Also, we answer a difficult question from a listener. On Wiki of the Week, we read the section from the Wikipedia page for “Squatting Position,” titled, “Hunkerin’.” It was so popular it was suggested to world leaders to solve their problems! We welcome Nick Thune, who just got off tour with Emily. He has a really fun early career story about working in reality TV. On Expert Hour, we are joined by fast food refrigeration expert Tony Jacaloni-Stein.

Hello babies!

First things first: Go buy a Chunch shirt and go see Emily on tour this summer! lisahanawalt.threadless.com and emilyheller.tumblr.com respectively. On today’s episode, Lisa has a frustrating online purchase experience. Also on today’s episode, Emily has a frustrating customer service experience. On Chunch Chat, Martha has been doing some garden tours and showing off Banchunch. Emily gives Lisa a Chunch themed gift. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Curse of the Colonel,” which refers to an urban legend regarding a reputed curse placed on the Japanese Kansai-based Hanshin Tigers baseball team by deceased KFC founder and mascot Colonel Harland Sanders. We welcome Zach Sherwin, who has a fun KFC connection. On Expert Hour, we are joined by professional paid protestor Winston James.

Hello babies!

Summer is in full effect! Emily overdid it at Disney’s California Adventure and threw up, which ranks as the third most interesting thing to do at Disney's California Adventure. Lisa has a hot take on Josh Gadd and Ed Sheeran. Can they really be as bad as we want them to be? Also on the episode, we discuss the rules of karaoke and which fictional characters (specifically animated) were the most horny-inducing. On Chunch Chat, Lisa made some Banchunch shirts! Go buy one at lisahanawalt.threadless.com . On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Lapland New Forest,” which was a Christmas-themed park that existed for a brief period in December 2008, near Ringwood, Hampshire, UK. The park really captures the disappointment that a lot of people feel during the holidays. We welcome Andrew Ti, who spends a lot of time arguing with creationists and racists online. On Expert Hour, we are joined by television superstar and author Kelsey Grammer.
