The early Rimcast listeners made this so fun for us, and you're the reason we kept going. For that, we are indebted to you.Talk to you guys later, thanks for listening.(We've never done a trailer before, so go easy on us.) Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

Hello! We're back. AB had another child!

Rim and AB come to grips with the sudden ire directed toward one of AB's all-time favorite entertainers, Justin Timberlake.

AB seems to think his tear-jerker network TV show has something special in store after the Super Bowl.

(We used a photo of speedskating legend Bonnie Blair because let's face it, a picture of Tide Pods wouldn't exactly stand out in your social feeds this week.) I hope this podcast finds you well. It's been more than a month since we got together to make jokes about dumb and serious things happening in the world. In the intervening time, AB's daughter has grown into a full-fledged cognitive genius, teens everywhere are poisoning themselves by eating packets of laundry detergent, and the Balls have become the first family of Lithuania. Plus: The Winter Olympics are just around the corner. Which positions will Rim and AB play on the United State Curling team in 2034? Hosted on Acast. See for more information.
There's no good way to put together a two-hour clip show of yourself yammering into a microphone without seeming vain. But we did it anyway. These are some segments that made us laugh this year, from the sad arc of Rim's 10K challenge to AB's best parenting moments to our aggressive treatment of Stat Boy and much more.

The topics may not interest you specifically, but the chemistry here is at a deep crimson red level (that's good).

The first half hour of this episode is just Rim force-feeding you his uninformed opinions and half-baked theories about men's soccer in the United States. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

We try not to repeat topics here on the Rimcast, but we usually end up repeating topics. If you've heard enough about the Ball family and 'American Idol', let us know @RimcastES.
