We start off with:
bickering about A Very Serious Question; dealing with my feelings; addressing Phil’s concerns about the quality of our content, me telling a couple of stories (one about coffee snobbery and the other about a dream I had involving a rat and my genitals), and some other stuff.
After about 15 MINUTES we address Listener Feedback, mainly concerning:
our friend (and last week’s guest) Ryan’s feelings, getting paid, and some other stuff.
At about 20 MINUTES in, we move on to our first topic, the new movie Superbad. This includes discussion of:
movie reviews in general, fraternal love, what girls think, the state of comedy, my grandma and some other stuff.
When that’s done– at about 35 MINUTES– we discuss a movie that Phil’s been trying to get me to watch for years, the classic comedy Sullivan’s Travels. It leads us to such topics as:
Veronica Lake, comedy and morality in classic Hollywood, the films of the Coen Brothers, socially-responsible movies, late-eighteenth & early-nineteenth century sexual mores in America, the wild sea, and some other stuff.
After roughly 55 MINUTES, I get to hear a story about Phil’s dad spilling Diet Coke on Phil’s bed, and Phil gets to hear two stories about defecation.
Just before 1 HOUR & 10 MINUTES we decide to go over responses for two recent A Very Serious Question topics, movies that make you cry and fantasy theme parks, and ramble on about such things as:
extreme reality television, fiction vs. non-fiction, sympathy for sharks, global warming, the Bible, usury, hippies and some other stuff.
Did I mention that we talk about some other stuff?
