A weekly fun chat on an eclectic selection of topics
Hedgehogs
Hedgehogs

This week, we're talking about Hedgehogs, and with good reason.  Why are we compelled to keep pets that can hurt us?  Why must we love as much as we do?  We don't have an answer, but we have a podcast.

IT'S HERE!
The totally-100%-non-biased graph as promised that finally, once and for all establishes without a shadow of a doubt, what is quantitatively the best pet!




By the way, we know you disagree.  We'd love to know how exactly.  Facebook, e-mail, twitter, there's so many ways to tell us we're wrong.  If you're curious, here's how we came up numbers.  Companionship was averaged from a pretty small survery with 0 being the least emotionally available and 10 being the most.  Functionality was based off of how many tasks the pet can perform for you (guiding, herding, fiber, etc.) that will not lead to the pet's premature death (i.e. fighting, meat).  Finally, maintenance is based off of boarding/mat'l costs we found online.  Argue away gang!


IKEA

This week is all about IKEA, the furniture megastore / unstoppable lifestyle machine.


More broadly, we talk about consumer culture versus individual expression, and also funny Swedish names.


RealAudio

    So we tried to sit down to have a real strategic discussion about the direction of the podcast.  Turns out, we couldn't hold it together long enough.  We just had to discuss the long term impact that RealAudio had on our lives.
  • For your cultural reference, Hansen's MmmBop
  • Did you know Hootie and the Blowfish are still performing?
  • Some notable radio stations

Halloween and Costume Parties
Halloween and Costume Parties

Halloween Special! This week we talk about Halloween's historical and possible future place in the holiday pantheon, the legitimacy of costume parties, and trick-or-treating's origin in begging, which it pretty much still is.


Zumba Fitness

This week, we're talking about Zumba!  Do you roll your eyes at the mention?  Are you a brand-loyal? Or maybe you're fresh from ZumbAcademy?

  • To round out your Zumba Knowledge, check out a Zumba video!
    • It should be said that different instructors will have different routines for the same songs, and each instructor has their own style and intensity level.
    • If you're curious, Kathryn's favorite Zumba dance is Gungnam Style.
    • To round out your Skippy Snack bar knowledge, check out that horrible commerical!
      • So I thought the lady elephant host said "New skippy snack bar presents: The Nut Shots!" She actually says, "The Nut Shells!".  Just an FYI.  Have a good week everyone.
