It's a classic catch-up with mom that starts with a dramatic reading of her viral short story Old Blue, becomes an announcement that her third New York Times bestseller Vacuuming in the Nude will be available as an audiobook on this podcast, and then somehow devolves into a scatological story-swap evoking the Thomas Crapper episode.
The lifelong environmentalist and one-time California gubernatorial candidate talks about the current energy crisis, climate narcissism, and how what’s good for the climate is not necessarily good for the environment.
Today’s episode honors the man who unwittingly inspired Mike’s career by inventing the first flushable commode, Mike shares a David Sedaris story about a turd that won’t flush titled Big Boy then, in an homage to eighth-grade humor, Mike and Chuck swap embarrassing stories involving the necessary.
For half a dozen years Chuck has been trying to introduce Mike to Peabody Award winning actor, Nick Searcy who is best known for playing Chief Deputy U.S. Marshall Art Mullen on the FX series Justified, one of Mike’s favorite shows.  They discuss Nick’s career, why he made a movie about 1/6/21, and how he met President Bill Clinton at the White House.

Great interview! Mike Rinder and Leah Remini will ultimately be responsible for bringing down Scientology. Mad respect for Mike Rowe for being one of very few celebrities to expose Scientology as the cult it is.

He never made fun of a disabled person and he wasn't talking about all Mexicans he was talking about the gang bangers that come here illegally

What also just cuts hard is that high school grads can take out HUGE loans for *college* but banks won't budge an inch if those same 17 & 18 year olds (or even adults in their early 20's) want to take out a loan to start a small business. #PersonalExperience

To add reasoning to tissue vs. handkerchief. Men have whiskers sometimes. Tissue can leave behind tissue feathers. Like a tissue left in a pocket later found obliterated in the washer or dryer. Yuck! A Handkerchief seems dapper (except when hung over the heater, slight gag). I love old movies where a man can offer up a CLEAN handkerchief to a lady. "Just My Thought" to "The Way You Heard It".
