After a 3-week hiatus, Barry and LaToya are back. The New Year brought with it LaToya’s hypochondriac sickness issues, which aren’t so because they’re real. Barry is living his best life. After his lost week, he’s now in a relationship and not getting much sleep. Yeh, they still have the magic, although someone really should remove LaToya’s access to television and retail therapy.
It’s the day after Christmas, and the hosts are so dedicated that they recorded the 9th season’s finale. Barry has his first Christmas as a divorcee, and LaToya wished on Christmas Eve that she too was divorced. From High Tea to Popeye’s, Penny Dreadful to Bill Cosby and, Kardashians to Cats, their post-Christmas show is a gift.
Barry’s on Christmas break and LaToya’s counting down the days until her own. Barry talks about his new roommates, and LaToya shows how much of a hermit she is when she’s a day late in learning of Trump’s impeachment. Reality shows and Frozen 2 make the headlines as does LaToya’s recent home improvements. Plus, learn more than you know about The Simpsons and their 30 years on television.

It’s yet another day where neither host wants to do the show. However, since it’s therapy for them both, they put on a brave face and bring their B-game. Barry’s reading a book that LaToya’s interested in and LaToya commits a cardinal sin when her Christmas movie list doesn’t include what Barry feels is a required Christmas classic. They both plan on seeing the same movie next week. Separately, of course. As usual, Barry proves that he’s blacker than LaToya.
Barry describes, “It was brilliant, moving and full of the joy and pathos of humanity. You’ll never hear it, but trust us, it was beautiful.” This show was almost dubbed “The Lost Episode.” The hosts start the show early with the hopes of finishing early. However, 90 minutes into the show, LaToya’s iMac crashes, and both are worried that the perfection of those 90 minutes would be lost forever. Breathing a sigh of relief, “That’s why I love my Mac,” says LaToya, “All is not lost.”
It's Thanksgiving, y'all, and what is there that's better than a brand new In the Stacks episode! It's all about entertainment and the gobble. Barry plans on having a low-key celebration while LaToya will be continuing her 15+ year tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving with some of her favorite family members. If you've somehow not yet seen Frozen II, you're in the minority, and Barry suggests a few other podcasts for your listening pleasure.
Barry’s sick, which means LaToya will be sick within days. Sure, they haven’t been in the same room since 2014, but LaToya gets sick at the mere mention of sickness. The show has its first guest in as many years, and he adds some real insight to Barry and LaToya’s musings. And if you want to hear about Angels, this is the show for you.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Jason Statham. Jerry O’Connell. Jeff Goldblum. Kevin Spacey. Arnold Schwarzeneggar. Jean-Claude Van Damme. Sylvester Stallone. Find out how all those names come up in one conversation. Barry, now 47, feels that he’s nearing death, and LaToya shows how much she doesn’t care about the impeachment hearings.
Barry wants to record early, and LaToya wants to try a different audio recorder for the show. Barry wins. LaToya loses because her plan to switch from Zoom to Skype didn’t work as she hoped. It’s been a busy past couple of days for the hosts. One host breaks up a fight while the other attended a wedding. And based on the title of this episode, it turns into a very interesting show.
Barry wants to record early so he can give out candy, but LaToya doesn’t care about the children. Who will think of the damned children??? Barry will, that’s who. Don’t hate, appreciate. LaToya’s taking up the helm of passing out candy for the first time in her adult life. If you’re hoping for a “clean” episode, this one isn’t it. After all, it’s our 100th!
LaToya is sick and didn’t want to do the show. Barry doesn’t care; the show must go on. The show meanders a bit, but there are great nuggets of information on political views, television shows, and Facebook friends. Plus, there’s a spike in our downloads, and it’s all thanks to Michigan. Will the hosts be face-to-face for the first time in over five years to record their upcoming 100th episode?
Barry is watching an ethnic show, and LaToya is in a crappy mood (nothing new there). However, her mood is improved when Barry shares fan mail from our favorite listener, Allie Fox. Despite feeling like there wasn’t anything to discuss, LaToya steals the show. Or so she thinks. Keeping with the times, Barry is excited about the new season of Riverdale but is uninterested in an upcoming Clueless revival. LaToya grudgingly has new tech but is still on track to being debt-free (minus the house) in 2023.
They’re back for another season, and LaToya isn’t ready to get back in the stacks. With an upcoming business trip and her trying to stave off a cold, she seems a bit delirious and absent-minded. Barry, on the other hand, is locked and loaded and brings his usual A-game to the season opener.
It’s the end of the 8th season. LaToya’s feeling more depressed than usual and was recently sick. Barry is still excited about The Great Gatsby and talks about his harrowing experience of falling down three steps. They both agree that there are movies that never need to be remade, thanks, Cary Elwes. Barry has a new solo podcast and reveals a season-ending cliffhanging confession.

Even with a well-planned show outline the hosts still meander into discussions around death, shacking up, and water hoses. Barry is excited that it’s “Gatsby” season and LaToya is looking forward to seeing Lizzie McGuire. First world problems abound as Barry is excited about a major accomplishment. And, despite their friendship of over a decade, Barry throws LaToya under the bus and makes her provide clarifying details of the first date weekend that she had with her now-husband of 7 years.

This week it seems that neither Barry or LaToya are watching the runtime clock for the episode making it the 3rd longest episode to date. LaToya informs Barry that the fans loved his raunchy closing of the last episode, but can he perform under pressure? Barry rethinks the BaToya rating scale. DragonCon 2019 has come and gone. Barry outsmarted a mosquito in a very surprising way. Nicknames go to a whole new “White Chocolate” level. Labor Day is a movie marathon day for LaToya and Barry’s the only one on Facebook Dating.
With Barry insisting on cursing each episode, LaToya changes the podcast setting from Clean to Explicit. The floodgates are now open for Barry and his potty mouth. LaToya is dealing with life-altering events but is glad that she has her writing and Gwen to take care of her. When Barry dies, he’s entrusting LaToya to be his Facebook Legacy Contact, but she hasn’t given him the honor of being hers. A new rating scale is established. Ready or Not, Tag, you’re it.
LaToya’s late to another recording, and this time it’s not because she’s waiting on food, she’s addressing her personal life and her lost love. Barry sells out. Barry divorces LaToya… one Thursday each month. Disney and Marvel’s divorce. Immigrants with constitutional rights?! Yeh, the show is its usual shade of mayhem and fun.
LaToya makes us start the show late because her food wasn’t delivered in time, prompting Barry to threaten to record the show without her. She tells him to go ahead, knowing he was just bluffing. Talk turns to the advances in eye care, a very expensive trip to the dentist, Barry’s nearing completion of writing another novel, movies (of course), Netflix, entertainment, and Barry’s true calling.
The show starts on an upbeat tone and then drifts to the hard-hitting issues of the day, gun control and race relations. Barry talks about being a surprise role model to kids whose lives are nothing like his childhood. LaToya shares a secret about being of a lighter hue. While there are some uplifting elements, including Barry’s Yoo-hoo obsession, this episode puts it all out there.
