Episode 11: Civil Servants

TAMF returns triumphantly with our best-sounding episode yet. These are the employees in your governments. By which we mean not our regular panelists, but subjects like long-dead pledges to obscure British organizations, stamps, Albert Einstein’s sexual history, and a game of This-or-That that cannot be told… you must simply experience it. Bag this one up […]

Episode 10: Pastry

A live studio audience augments this show featuring Christen McCurdy and guests Tom Henderson, Bryan Bingold and Doruk Özaydın. Discussed are Chinese dissidents, nationalist rivalries in or near the seat of civilization, and more serious topics, like obscure manga. Nobody involved seems to be 100% clear on what pastries are, but 90% is pretty good, […]

Episode 9: TEEN HYSTERIA

This episode, featuring the regulars as well as Pat Rafferty of Raffertyesque, has finally stumbled in the door, several weeks late, with a torn jacket and no pants. Discussed are the Salem witch trials, LSD, the Comics Code Authority, and various secrets and codes. Not discussed whatsoever are rainbow parties. This episode clocks in a […]

Episode 8: Gold

The show that asks “Can I get an over/under?” returns with an episode that takes the most influential mineral in human history and renders it pretty darned inessential. With the regulars. Think Again, My Friend is legally defined as an alloy containing not less than 6% Hitler, 4% superheroes, and by sheer coincidence, no rappers.

Episode 7: Chemical Dependency

From the heart of caffeine, beer, and meth country comes a podcast that discusses none of these. We have more serious chemicals to discuss, such as paint fumes, Portland tap water, and meth. Okay, we do talk about meth. A little. Join us, and you’ll see that as the regular panelists continue, the probability that […]

Episode 6: Hair

Where there is hair, there is culture and disgust, therefore there are the regular TAMF panelists plus special guest Jess Rude. Discussed (see what I did there) are topics including bezoars, the Han Dynasty, variants on Rule 34, and made-for-TV movies that might have been fever dreams. There is a lot of microphone noise in […]

Episode 3: Coal

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, […]

Episode 2: Meat Preservation

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.
