Tricia takes a break from cohosting her own inordinately entertaining podcast Nerdette to talk long form about a topic that gets inevitably philosophical. She has adored the idea of exploring time travel since she noticed it popping up in her favorite things to consume (Doctor Who, Harry Potter, etc). We talk some of her new favorite examples (she knows other people are watching Travelers) and spend a lot of time discussing why we as creators and consumers have become even more interested in exploring the idea of going to the past or future in recent years.

In. Out. Repeat. While listening to this great conversation with Nico Carter, the host encourages you to center yourself, breathe, and soft focus on what's around you. Nico starts by elaborating on the lung issues that befell him to make him more aware of his own breath in the first place, then takes MBS on a journey through the awareness that breath has given him in improv (musically, comedically, and where acting and writing are concerned) and day to day life.

John and Asher are close friends who write and perform together a lot, so they naturally have to make a lot of decisions together. We unpack the possible topics they both brought to the table and discover a lot of them are related to the subject (the Mandela Effect, heuristics), we dig into the way our personalities and thought processes affect the decisions we make, and we get into how an obsession with decision-making can make improv both a daunting task and a freeing gift of an art from.

Luis put in his years as a Universal Studios tour guide so that you, the listener, could be regaled with tales ranging from giving a VIP tour to a certain CA Governator to the ridiculous costume his union rep was wearing when he was let go from the job. From Courthouse Square (downtown Hill Valley in Back to the Future) to Colonial Street (Wisteria Lane in Desperate Housewives), Luis knows the ins and outs of the lot so well it often distracts him when he's watching one of the plethora of projects that have shot there.

Musical comedy duo The Doubleclicks remote in to chat with MBS about their favorite duos - from Fozzie and Kermit to R2-D2 and C-3PO, the ladies covered tons of kid-focused partners and compared and contrasted themselves along the way. As sisters Angela and Aubrey have a built-in partnership and reference base, and as artists they enjoy having music to explore their relationship to the world around them.

The tables turn in a special ep featuring past guest (and significant other) Eric "EMB" Braband interviewing MBS about her love of wolves. That's what wuves means. The interest mostly stems from reading and pet choices made as a kid, was cultivated via gifts and articles from family members over the years, and was reinvigorated thanks to an amazingly thoughtful gift from the guest host last year.

After growing up in the area as a fan of Pryor & Cosby, Bill Bullock has now spent many years in the Chicago comedy community and thinks a ton about finding one's way through it. We discuss a lot of the good and bad about getting your comedy chops honed in Chicago and the more common it becomes to see your "elders" and peers set off for the coasts for bigger things.

Aisha knows what she likes, and what she likes is a good crime show. She wants there to be a self-contained story arc of whodunit, who found em, and what their fate is, and she'll check out pretty much anything your auntie watches on TV as a result. Law and Order (Original Recipe), Criminal Minds, NCIS, and even the new Elementary (which she marks as a better actual procedural than Sherlock in spite of her deep love of Benedict Cumberbatch) all make her watch list, and it's a blast to hear her break them down.

Laura-Ann Jacobs knows her way around an AYCE joint better than anyone I've ever met. She not a monster, she just appreciates a challenge. If she's not eating double to triple the value of the cost of the buffet, then why did she pay for it?

Being born in Canada and moving to the San Jose area around when the Sharks franchise was started there solidified Fin Coe's interest in hockey. All it took was a former high school sweetheart to bring him back to NHL fandom in college and some intrepid hockey-playing beginners in Chicago to keep his passion alive and spread it into actually playing recreationally himself.
