Episode 92 – The Next Big Thing

In Episode 92, we examine some of the entertainment properties (and pork products) that should command everyone’s attention by asking the question, “What should we all be ‘geeking out’ over?”

But first, we discuss tea, David Bowie, and the world’s most selfish heavy metal band. We also take a moment to give a special dedication to a fallen friend and listener.

In our next episode (scheduled to be recorded on Sunday, January 31st), we want to find out what social media habits, practices, and general behavior really grinds your gears by asking, “What are the three biggest ‘crimes’ people regularly commit on social media?”

Episode 91 – Big Fat Deal

In Episode 91, we cut to the heart of the body positivity movement by asking, “Is it OK to be fat?”

Before diving in to the topic and hearing from our listeners, we face the gauntlet that is Three Questions, with three diabolical queries submitted by the master of cringe-worthy, potentially shame-inducing, introspective inquiry himself, Mr. Lee Medcalf.

In our next episode (scheduled to be recorded on Sunday, January 17th), we seek out the next big thing, or what should be, by asking “What should we all be geeking out over?” (In other words, what movies, TV shows, books, comics, apps, etc are you REALLY into and think we all need to get on board with?).

Episode 90 – Back To School

After 9 months away, this baby is back, dropping a brand new episode on you out of the blue. We have some help in this return episode from some amazing students in the Czech Republic, who have sent us questions via their teacher (and loyal Questioneer), Leigh Newton.

After discussing some of the reasons for our time away, shamelessly apologizing for the stops-and-starts, and laying out our plans for the podcast going forward, we dive into the questions put before us (and even give the kids a little bit of homework!).

We will return after the New Year, recording the weekend of January 3rd, when we will tackle the subject of fat shaming and body positivity by asking simply, “Is it OK to be Fat?”

We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Question 87 – Slave to Success

Episode 87 – This episode of the Question was recorded before a live studio audience of interrupting cats. Ok, maybe “audience” is being generous.

Take a listen as we discuss this week’s Question: Is it fair to hold artists to the standard of their previous successes?

Episode 85 – Social Uncertainty

Episode 85 is back from sick leave with a bumper crop of insecurity and social awkwardness as we ask the Question: What is a social situation you’re unsure how to handle? At tne end, we have a trust fall and hug it out.

Next week, we have a listener submitted Question that was initially intended for our Valentine’s episode, that explores the more complicated side of love and relationships: In a relationship, can you be held accountable for your partner’s differing expectations? If they want more out of the relationship that you do, should you continue to get what you want/need out of said relationship, or should you go your separate ways?
