There are no easy references in this episode of TAMF, by which I mean there are no references to Easy Bake Ovens. We make our first use of foley, unless it isn’t foley anymore when the sound you hear is actually made by what it purports to be made by; if that does count as foley, we’ve been doing foley all along, so nevermind, I guess. Other milestones include the return of Ed Hawkins, not heard from since our first show. Our longest episode yet, after the longest wait! Thanks for being here!
The cast plus special guest Tom Henderson have their own private Heteronormandy. The show’s a bit long, so not included is a lengthy sidebar on the appropriateness and cross-cultural applicability of the word “douche.” Also not included are most of the less funny microphone-adjustment noises.
With extra assistance, we are capable of addressing literature. The regulars, with Mark Bergo whom we would start counting as a regular by now if he had a web page we could link to, winnow the vast field of detective fiction down to an expertly editorial selection of random things we wrote questions about. Subjects run the gamut from Lord Peter Wimsey to Captain Nazi. Prepare to be thrilled.
(Speaking of being thrilled, Brendan Adkins’ original joint the Children’s Hour of Knowledge is back for a new season! Check it out.)
The regulars plus guest Mark Bergo discuss one of Western civilization’s hottest topics while scarcely even mentioning China, thereby making things less depressing than they could have been. We do touch on children’s books, German romantics, and sticking your head in the oven.
Be warned that the explicit-content warning is not fudging around this time, and some material may be considered offensive by some or all listeners. Enjoy!
Regular panelists Xen and Brendan have a proud, majestic and fully-plumaged discussion with host Mike about the preservation of animal flesh and its many relevant implications for our culture. Also, Mike is tacitly implicated in alien conspiracy, and the sound quality is a little better maybe.
The panelists plus guest Ed Hawkins (Roninspoon Theater) discuss the various threats, opportunities and curiosities that are comprised of our theme, Animals in Space. There is a bit of a weird sound issue on Mike’s channel that doesn’t ruin things unless you’re quite distractable, and a lengthy digression on movie trivia of the sort that we will eventually train ourselves out of.
