In today’s episode, we inexplicably relitigate the film Titanic, which is a million years old, and come up with a way cooler ending where the ship doesn’t break and the cool guy gets the treasure and everyone gets married.

Hey everyone! We don’t have a new MBMBaM for you today — instead, we’re doing a feed drop of Minority Korner. It’s a fantastic show on the Maximum Fun network that’s all about discussing culture and news through an intersectional lens. We’re so appreciative that James allowed us to cross-post the latest episode from last Friday on our feed. This past weekend, we all witnessed a horrific escalation of police violence against protestors and Black folks across the country. We encourage everyone to not only seek out and support Black creators, artists and voices, but to find ways to support folks on the ground, either through bail funds or by providing direct support to frontline protestors. Subscribe to Minority Korner: https://maximumfun.org/podcasts/minority-korner/ Find a local bail fund to support: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/bail_funds_george_floyd Find more educational anti-racism resources: http://bit.ly/ANTIRACISMRESOURCES
When observing this episode from the future, it should serve as a pretty good benchmark for where we’re at, mentally speaking, mid-quarantine. Y’all, we spend a CHUNK of time talking about a cool blanket we had growing up. A BIG chunk.Suggested talking points: Scoob Fever, Choice Bee Cuts, Mono Lisa, Powerful Tiger Blankets, Swordproof Hippo, 3rd Grade Plagiarism
We cordially invite you to go for a ride with us in Justin’s large, lovely Buick on a one-way trip to Jokesburg! (Provided you’ve wiped your feet, of course. Actually, just lose the shoes entirely. Are those CORN CHIPS? Are you trying to bring CORN CHIPS in this beautiful vehicle? What’s wrong with you?!)Suggested talking points: Justin’s Big Beautiful Buick, First Pickles, Big Doctor/Little Doctor, Sexual Arby’s, Garage Sale Sword Fight
Perhaps it’s the months of seclusion that has given us this macabre fascination, but in today’s episode, we debate, at length, the lethal capabilities of an automated car wash. Our conclusion: It’s probably not a great idea to walk into one of these things. (Feat. Special Guestpert: MC Bat Commander!)Suggested talking points: Energy Circle, Nothing Compares to Corn, Car Wash Survival, The EMT Store, Pigeons are Phones, Cake for Life, A New Large Bird, Zoom Vaping
At some point in all our lives, it’s happened to all of us: You’re enjoying a nice grind, but gosh! Where are you supposed to put your pocket-based belongings? Introducing: Grutler. (TM TM TM.)Suggested talking points: A Sampler Platter of Failed Introductions, The Music of the City, The American Fanny, Ice Cream Transgressions, Grandmummy
Hey, this is a weird one! For one thing, it’s a live show, which is a strange thing to listen to. For another thing, it’s a selection of bits from two different performances aboard the JoCo Cruise, so it’s a little patchwork-y and disjointed. We’ll be back with a regular ep next week!
If we’re gonna make it through this things, we’re gonna have to find genuine soul connections using Digital. And sometimes, we find Digital in the strangest of places, when we’re least expecting it. Suggested talking point: An Important Digital Communication, Delivery Heroism, Prankin’ Apple, Tooth Fairy Substitutions, Extremely Dirty Dancing, Mystery Squirt
Okay, we know we just had a non-standard 500th episode celebration, but as luck would have it, THIS episode also marks 10 years of us in the podcastin’ business. So, yes, Justin sings the song again. (Also, we’ve got new art, courtesy of the very talented Sarah McKay!)Suggested talking points: ZOLO Memories, Feline Sex Den, American Hero Horn, Play Along At Home (Sorry),Teleconference Mirror World, Healing and Growth Squad
In today’s episode, we set a new record for Lack of Commitment to an Opening Bit — a record whose previous holders include … let’s see here … oh, it’s us! The list just says us, like, fifty times.Suggested talking points: Hot Gin, Sonic’s Sacrifice, Timesheet Secrets, Bathroom Investigations, Goldfish Punishment, Large Old Pizza News, Titanic Kaiju
This isn't an episode of MBMBaM, but hey! Every living human being on Earth is talking about this game, so we decided to toss our Besties discussion here on the MBMBaM feed! (Don't fret -- this isn't taking the place of a MBMBaM; it's back Monday!)The Besties is a gaming podcast featuring Justin, Griffin, and Polygon co-founders Chris Plante and Russ Frushtick. We've been doing the show for a while, but only recently relaunched as a Spotify Original! You can follow the show for free at Besties.fan.
In which we find a hero in these trying times: A hero with a cybernetic, socially-conscious snake and a land speed rivaling a mid-2010s Toyota Corolla.Suggested talking points: Look to Britney, Porch-Stable Food, Angel Babysitter, In My Lungs, Unfortunate Grocery Replacements, Burritoing with Gronk, Duck Interpreter
Listen, y’all. There’s only one way that we’re getting through this thing, and I think we all know exactly what way I’m talking about. It is imperative, now more than ever, that we get Richard Gere to be a top-tier YouTuber.Suggested talking points: What’s Funny?!, Lying Ants, Snip Tunes, Roughhousing, Netflix Prophecies, Liminal Chalupa
(Note: This was going to be our kick-off episode for the MaxFunDrive, which has been postponed. We've cut most of the drive-talk out of the episode -- hence the shorter-than-usual runtime and occasional pauses. Hang in there, y'all.)Join us as we open up the My Brother, My Brother and Me book to a brand new chapter; one celebrating lifestyle brand innovations and, well, cool orbs. Suggested talking points: Gotta Touch These Orbs, Justin Clears His Conscience, The Last Beheading Day, Ancient Grains Ready to Rip, Please Don’t Tell Pigeons About Farms, Snack’n Bac’n
We’re currently sailing the high seas, searching for adventure on that big blue horizon. So, while we do that, here’s a live show we recently did in Cincinnati. (Griffin's doing fine, by the way. You'll understand why you might want that update a few minutes into the episode.)
So, before setting any expectations based on the title of the episode, know this: Ten years later, our bodies respond to spaghetti-loading SUPER differently. We all recorded this one together, and mostly spent it talking to our various family members, but also there are two impromptu musical numbers and a fierce competition of athletic prowess, so, yeah. Thank you all so much for sharing this past decade with us. You’ve changed our lives irrevocably, and there’s no way we’ll be able to repay that kindness in our lifetimes, so instead, we just ate a bunch of pasta and recorded it for you.
THIS IS A NORMAL EPISODE. Please do not come into this one thinking we’re doing some kind of pre-500 celebration, or something. It’s NORMAL. There is NOTHING that sets it apart from all the other episodes. OKAY?Suggested talking points: No Ramp Up, Soda Bag, Paul’s Finest Grape Cake, Bee Purple, Fall Off The Bone Love, Halftime Korn, Poker Griefing

I love Griffin but his reaction to Play Along At Home is just bad vibes. It's too dismissive and rude, even if it's meant to be a joke.

I'm on a serious MBMBAM deprivation so my brain started making my own MBMBAM bits. Today I dreamt of the following: 1) Travis ranking upleasant moments in life from the least to most upleasant. The list included the start of the flight and "draconing yourself" (which is not even a thing). Griffin of course dragged him for putting some bullshit thing at the top (Oh. oh. Trav. You sure (blank) is the most unpleasant? You sure Trav?) 2) Justin talking about the show PPP, the Legendary Racer. The tidbits I remember: "...so in the _musical_ they had to spread it out a little..." and "...so this [someone] calls him PTP" (and everyone gasping as of that's the worst that could happen to PPP, the Legendary Racer).

finally my very specific interests pay off i can shout at the podcast app about snails make their shells and also slugs (and nudibrancs) evolved from snails. some slugs have vestigil shells on their caudal pore. which is why they are grosser slugs produce smelly or milky slime to protect themselves (it comes from the caudal pore) ALSO dont pick up a snail by its shell its a great way to rip it from its mantle (the organ that makes the shell) and like salting a snail its a slow and painful death for them.

Really enjoyed this and have subscribed. I thought I had enough podcasts to listen to. More than I can keep up with anyway! But this is definitely worth subscribing to. Make room for it!

they should have kept 20-twice rolling the dice because, being a few months into 2020 as I listen to this, it's what it feels like. we're rolling the dice for worse and worse shit but we never know what it'll be. the bees work tho because of the murder hornets.

Thanks for making me remember the time I microwaved a pop tart in my 5th grade classroom and it caught fire.
