This week we’re joined by our friend Gennelle Smith – originator of the phrase “so purse” – to discuss fandoms! First we get to know Gennelle with a little quiz, including favourite ice cream flavours. Then, from Outlander to Pokémon to Apple, we discuss the fandoms we’ve belonged to and what it means to be a member of a fandom.
Unfortunately we couldn’t record this week, but we have a good excuse… or rather, a good episode about excuses! On this episode we talk about making excuses to get out of doing something, how to avoid hurting people’s feelings, and the crazy excuses we’ve used in the past.
Coming out is one of the biggest moments in a gay person’s life. This week Eric and Michael share their own stories about coming out and discovering your sexuality, and they discuss The Daily Beast’s horrible article that outed gay Olympians in Rio.
This week Eric and Michael talk about the Olympics! The guys discuss what they’ve been watching from Rio, their favourite summer and winter Olympic sports, what sports they’d most like to compete in, the beautiful men of Olympic diving, and sporting injuries.
Eric and Michael return to talk about some of their favourite funny women including Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kathy Griffin, and Samantha Bee. Plus: thoughts on the new Ghostbusters movie, and gross-out comedy vs. painful comedy.
