Kellen and I appropriately enjoyed cups of joe he brewed for us as we chatted about one of his favorite things, coffee. His entrance to the interest in coffee is fun to hear about, his knowledge of the subject is fascinating, and our digression to a general discussion of having passions and routines is goddamned lovely if I do say so myself.

Caution: If you do not like singing AND fun, you will not like this episode because there is a ton of both. Jessie Stegner (the third member of my improv team Raygun Reagan to be on MBSing) and I gab like gal pals about a favorite topic of both of ours: musical theatre.

I jawed with White Sox fan Bill Meincke in this super fun meeting of two baseball minds. I hope we didn't get TOO inside baseball (oh... that's what that means...) to preventthis conversation from being enjoyable for non-fans, but honestly I loved it so much and think everyone can. We really delved into what makes this game mean so much to us, and we share some really vulnerable baseball nerdiness.

Don your sleeveless shirts and tie your bandannas, folks, because this MBSing has a dress code.  I sat down with my friend and fellow Nerdologues member Eric Garneau (and his sweet doggie AC) to chat about his musical hero, Bruce Springsteen. Eric has actually written a scholarly paper and been to a symposium about The Boss (both of which I'd think are MBSing guest firsts).

Wherein I sat down with my dear friend and (former) fellow member of The Nerdologues, Alex Talavera. I've never seen No Reservations, but I want to start after hearing Alex talk about it for a little under an hour (even though it seems like most of what Alex gets from the show is rage jealousy).

This week I sat down with a real life Billy Shakes! I also made the dumbest joke I could've possibly made (you just read it... it's that Billy Shakes thing). This episode is truly wonderful. Stephanie shares how she came to write and publish numerous plays that have been produced all over the country and touches on how her Cuban heritage has been an inspiration for her throughout her life. Play on!

Lauren in the house for a good times episode about her favorite TV show, Veronica Mars. I hope you all enjoy me not being able to grasp some simple concepts about the show as Lauren explains them.

Buckle up, podcast listeners, and bring your fire hoses.  This discussion with Ryan Ben about one of his favorite films is a total delight.  Even someone who doesn't know Ryan can get a good sense of his character from his breakdown of Backdraft.  He acknowledges its weaknesses and silliness while praising its themes and simplicity.  Get into it!

Hoop it up, dudes! My friend Brandon is an NBA fanatic who has faithfully followed the Chicago Bulls and the NBA in general for almost 20 years. He has a ton of incredible insight on the way the league has changed in that time and the way his own life has been affected by his love of the game.
