We're back after a long break to discuss Disney vs. DeSantis and other Florida happenings, as well as Darin conceding our bet regarding the arrest of Donald Trump. There's lots of stories about Ted's trip to Costa Rica and Darin's adventures at Megacon and in Scotland. Plus, plenty of 2022 review lightning rounds and predictions for 2023, and personal stories about our music projects and our kids outsmarting us.
We start the new year with a podcast recorded in mid-December! In our debut episode as part of the Diamond Podcast Network, we discuss the Omicron variant of COVID19, and meander through a discussion of moviegoing during the pandemic. Segments include an extended 2021 In Memoriam and Darin's Quick Movie Reviews of Ghostbusters:Afterlife and Little Nicky. We end with a story about dolphins.
Back after a ridiculously long break, we discuss our experiences with COVID19 and the effects of taking the vaccine. After Darin enjoys a popular drink from the 1980's, a current events lightning round leads to a discussion of the events of January 6. Finally, a quick story about hooking up a television!

We close with some funny home improvement stories!
It's our special pandemic edition! We discuss incompetence by the US government, our personal daily routines, and share handy hints for surviving the lockdown. No segments, no Listener Prime search, nothing but the pandemic! OK, maybe one silly story about a windy day in Maryland.

Plus, In Memoriam and Sad Science segments, and we end with an extended Treding Topic related to Hurricane Dorian.
This post-Mueller-testimony episode begins with a discussion of the "disgusting rat-infested mess" known as Maryland's 7th district, AKA where Ted lives, and then meanders through discussions of white privilege and presidential racism.

Plus, a long In Memoriam segment, along with the new Awkward Celebrity Encounter segment. We end with a quick story about driving with a sleeping child, and a super-fast Trending Topic segment.
From the Democratic debates to the border crisis, politics take center stage in this episode! We also discuss the major SCOTUS rulings, leading to a radical proposal to reshape the electoral map.

This episode is the post-Avengers:Endgame episode, with a brief spoiler-free review, and a discussion of Darin's attempts to avoid spoilers and the resulting bet between the hosts. We also cover evolving opinions regarding useless celebrities, and have In Memoriam and Asian Domination segments. Plus, the brand new Follow-Up segment includes a discussion of the recent Sri Lankan bombings and talk of sacrifice for the greater good. If all that wasn't enough, we close the show with dueling stories of Darin's trip to Disney and Ted's trip to Fort Lauderdale.
Recorded before the release of the Mueller report, this episode has the hosts discussing the Attorney General's 4-page non-summary. But while everyone is now talking about the redacted Mueller report, we discuss the secret unredacted version! Also, Darin recounts his recent and not-so-recent trips to the smoky mountains of Tennessee, and we test out our new temporary Listener Prime! Plus, Trending Topic, In Memoriam and Weird Science segments, and a vasectomy update Did we mention the glitter?
Amidst an ongoing show-related crisis, this episode includes a discussion of movie and TV topics, including the decline of the new Golden Age of TV and Fox News viewers. Plus, we introduce a new Trending Topic segment to shamelessly attract new listeners, and Ted closes things out with a story of a difficult train ride.
Back after a 2 month hiatus, it's our long-awaited recap of news from 2018! Plus, we catch up on current events in our lives, including Ted's strange illness and Darin's encounter with a unique food item. Also, a little cemetery humor!
It's our long-delayed post-election episode, recorded in late November but unpublished until now due to circumstances beyond our control. We also explore our respective Thanksgiving adventures in New Jersey and at EPCOT, and have In Memoriam, Weird Science, and Asian Domination segments. We wrap things up with a report on Ted's vasectomy.
It's right before Halloween, and we briefly take a serious tone as we try to get our heads around all of the mass shootings, but quickly return to the comedy for our new Asian Domination segment. We close things out with a long discussion of cleaning an ailing mother-in-law's house, which leads to a joke repeat, as well as our new Manilow Rants segment.
