I...want...you...to know that Jake Weisman (Corporate – @weismanjake) is ON THE SHOW!!! A supremely sexy yet angry episode absorbing the power of Alanis Morissette's 1995 classic, "You Oughta Know" that will surely launch an investigation into Flea's bass performance. Miel tells Demi to shut up a lot. Demi gets drunk with soundboard power. It's a very fun episode. [more inside]
Will, Amber and Matt talk Amber's new piece arguing the need to get behind Bernie. They also fantasize about what they'd do if they were getting divorced from Jeff Bezos and end with another dark trip to Carcosa. [more inside]
There's a lot of what I'm going to classify as "Goof Echoes" in this episode — a strange phenomenon where subject matter of the past is placed, unconsciously, back on the table for discussion. Join us as we revisit challenging topics, such as Goose-Love, and Shampoo Chemistry. Suggested talking points: Glasswatch, Shark Cuban, Bung's A Bung's A Bung, Sudsy Substitution, Special Guestpert: Bridget Lancaster, Schiff in the Mix, Doose Guck

I’m not gonna pretend like I have southern accent or talk to you about pickup trucks and chewing tobacco. This is about the truth. You don’t have to know what it’s like to drive a tractor. You don’t need to have spent the last 20 years listening to nothing but Merle Haggard 8 tracks while sipping Pearl beer from a can in order to appreciate these incredible stories and this genius music. You don’t need to “be” country to perform country, so you certainly don’t have to be country to enjoy it. [more inside]
We're looking for every opportunity we can to Become the Monster (TM, TM, TM) which informs a lot of this episode. Namely? We're tired of the super "hero" known as Wolverine always trying to murder our dad, and boy, we're feeling brave enough to give him a piece of our mind. Suggested talking points: Our Coworker Wolverine, Christmas in August, Janine's Big Pockets, Tebow's Fresh Start, Crash Etiquette, Origami Mistake

This episode is pretty dang near mandatory for anyone who wants to live 2019 in the correct manner.

Suggested talking points: Deliberation of the Annual Theme for One-Half an Hour, Yeastblasting, Parkour for Cash, Round Etiquette, Bean Halen
Historian Louis Hyman on the surprising origins of the "gig economy." Hyman is joined in conversation by Data & Society's Labor Engagement Lead Aiha Nguyen and Researcher Alex Rosenblat. Hyman's latest book "Temp: How American Work, American Business, and the American Dream Became Temporary" tracks the transformation of an ethos that favored long-term investment in work (and workers) to one promoting short-term returns. A series of deliberate decisions preceded the digital revolution, setting off the collapse of the postwar institutions that insulated us from volatility including big unions, big corporations, and powerful regulators. Through the experiences of those on the inside–consultants and executives, temps and office workers, line workers and migrant laborers–Temp shows how the American Dream was unmade.

On the morning of July 16, 1996, someone walked into a furniture store in downtown Winona, Mississippi, and murdered four employees. Each was shot in the head. It was perhaps the most shocking crime the small town had ever seen. Investigators charged a man named Curtis Flowers with the murders. What followed was a two-decade legal odyssey in which Flowers was tried six times for the same crime. He remains on death row, though some people believe he's innocent. [more inside]

As we prepare for our hometown holiday extravaganza, we present to you our recent live show from Denver, CO! It was a rowdy one, y'all. We suspect that everyone in the room had been visited that night by their city's nightmare airport horse, and had been driven into a state of pure, horrified ecstasy.
