Podcast: My Brother, My Brother And Me: MBMBaM 510: Killer Car Wash

Perhaps it's the months of seclusion that has given us this macabre fascination, but in today's episode, we debate, at length, the lethal capabilities of an automated car wash. Our conclusion: It's probably not a great idea to walk into one of these things. (Feat. Special Guestpert: MC Bat Commander!)Suggested talking points: Energy Circle, Nothing Compares to Corn, Car Wash Survival, The EMT Store, Pigeons are Phones, Cake for Life, A New Large Bird, Zoom Vaping

Book: Pigeons

Pigeons have been worshipped as fertility goddesses and revered as symbols of peace. Domesticated since the dawn of man, they’ve been used as crucial communicators in war by every major historical superpower from ancient Egypt to the United States and are credited with saving thousands of lives. Charles Darwin relied heavily on pigeons to help formulate and support his theory of evolution. Yet today they are reviled as “rats with wings.” Author Andrew D. Blechman traveled across the United States and Europe to meet with pigeon fanciers and pigeon haters in a quest to find out how we came to misunderstand one of mankind’s most helpful and steadfast companions. Pigeons captures a Brooklyn man’s quest to win the Main Event (the pigeon world’s equivalent of the Kentucky Derby), as well as a convention dedicated to breeding the perfect bird. Blechman participates in a live pigeon shoot where entrants pay $150; he tracks down Mike Tyson, the nation’s most famous pigeon lover; he spends time with Queen Elizabeth’s Royal Pigeon Handler; and he sheds light on a radical “pro-pigeon underground’ in New York City. In Pigeons, Blechman tells for the first time the remarkable story behind this seemingly unremarkable bird.
