MB and the boys are back in town for a "Season 2" premiere that will catch you up on every single thing that happened in sports since episode 40. Once that's out of the way, things get frightening[ly fun and informative] as Hooli goes Trick-or-Treating across the NBA, The Joe unmasks a horror film villain for each NFL franchise, and MB describes the costumes some Astros and Dodgers will be donning during the series. It's all scarier than your battered fantasy football lineup!

Once Matt had wrestled with the big Qs of "Where do we go after this?" and "Why do we do what we do?" in his youth, he found himself more focused on the even bigger picture as as adult: "Where did this all come from?" Now, oscillating between all three and folding these big questions into being a psychiatric nurse, writer, and improviser, he finds the idea that all of existence came from cosmic "shrapnel" inordinately comforting.

Ready for a dense chat about embarrassment, purpose, and fear of death? Good, because it’s coming for you! Shay went from being an artist and coproducer of Mortified Chicago to adding a more recent passion for being a death doula and funeral celebrant.
