#78: #MeToo For Dudes

July 16th, 2018

00:0000:00

Ron and Gil meet up with Belia and Stephanie (referred to as Stelia going forward) at the house of mirrors. We start the show talking about Stephanie's arrival to Phoenix (from Chicago) and what she likes and dislikes. We then talk about how to get a good haircut and Stelia talk about their drive and how horrible it was. We switch over to discussing how different men and women rate the opposite sex and how people can’t be a train-hopping hobo anymore (somebody tell Albert). We then switch the conversation onto the future of the podcast and discuss the finer points about editing the podcast. Afterwards, we review Stephanie's future job prospects. The atmosphere turns more somber when Stelia share a #MeToo moment at a party they attended. After we take a few phone calls, our crew is able to quickly get the victim on the phone to share the terrifying details. We then talk about people who eat smelly food at work and end the show with some final thoughts about our new friend of the pod, Stephanie, and how we are going to find a job for her.

#77: Old as F?#k Place (or The Betty Page Continuum)

July 5th, 2018

00:0000:00

Once again in The Cave of Thrones the Core Three welcome Belia and very special guest and notorious White Whale Palermo.  The show begins with a discussion of Palermo's love of Betty Page, but then jumps quickly to his views on the detainment issue south of the border, the continuing soap opera that is Gil's and Belia's mom's life, and Palermo's return to the single life.  Eventually, the conversation comes full circle before fading out on another classic debate: abortion.

#76: The Macaroni and Cheese Trail (or “What’s the G Word”)

June 26th, 2018

00:0000:00

Once again, the Core Three are at the Cave of Thrones, discussing why they didn't podcast last week. In a word: drunk. In five words: drunk at The Iron Maidens.  From here the talk turns to kids in cages, which then degenerates into a disagreement over whether the US should be in the business of building walls.  Which eventually leads to talk about Dennis Rodman making the Trump - Un summit possible, who could talk Al and Gil down from a tower and B-52 respectively, and finally fascist liberals. But the burning question this week? How old IS Ron anyway?

#75: #MeToo-D2

June 10th, 2018

00:0000:00

The core group is back in the cave of thrones. We start the show discussing the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding a religious baker not wanting to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. This leads us to a discussion about the "No Shirt No Shoes No Service". We then discuss President Trump considering legalizing weed and he can pardon people who are abuse by the police. We switch to talking about the recent discovering that methane was discovered on Mars but what does that mean? Also, we talk about the media obsession with the whereabouts of Melania Trump which creates an opportunity to rank-order the first ladies based on hotness. We also talk about the changes to the Miss America pageant, championship sports teams not wanting to attend the White House, and then we revisit police brutality. Finally, we talk about a documentary called "The Final Year" that follows the Obama administration through the last 12 months and how he handled the anniversary of the U.S. dropping the A-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Then we review the "Solo" movie and social justice segments in more recent Star Wars movie. We end the show with a discussion on the NBA Finals with Lebron's Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Kevin Durant's Golden State Warriors and how Dennis Rodman can be an ambassador to other nations.

#74: Uberdope (Or My Mom’s Not a Racist Per Se…)

June 8th, 2018

00:0000:00

The Core Three are back in action and in The Cave of Thrones. After two weeks the gang has plenty to talk about. Starting with the obvious Rosanne debacle they move on to legalized gambling, Donald Trump news, Gil's new business idea that turns out not to be all that new, and Donald Rump news. They finally round the show out with movie reviews and a deadpool update in an episode that has more endings than Return of the  King.

#73: RIP Mini Me (or Who’s Your Daddy…Redd Foxx?)

May 11th, 2018

00:0000:00

The Core Three broadcast from The Cave of Thrones this week, where Gil and Belia tell of their mother's sketchy birthday dinner before the conversation turns to the Correspondence Dinner Controversy, the untimely death of Vern Troyer, and another tale of Kanye West's mouth run amok. They follow that up with the problem with Apu, a discussion about fathers, and the concept of catfishing, which someone or something clearly doesn't want Belia to research...

#72: Beverly the Flatulent (or Anybody Want a Peanut?)

May 1st, 2018

00:0000:00

The Core Three kick off this week's episode at The House of Mirrors with another rumination on the lurking fear and seeming danger of AZ Mills Mall then jump right into Round 3 of the Red for Ed debate.  They then switch gears to food allergies, stinky coworkers, and the revelation of Belia's "disgusting" work habit, before downshifting to a more somber ending. But how long can they really maintain a serious tone?

#71: Thank God It’s 420 (or Fixing a Hole)

April 30th, 2018

00:0000:00

This week the Core Three are back in a newly remodeled (For the better?) Cave of Thrones. With it being 4/20 the boys and Belia jump right in to the meaning of "420" and the new bill introduced to legalize MJ on a Federal Level.  The four then jump into a discussion about the newly thawed Korean relations and Round 2 of the Red for Ed debate. They finish up with coverage of a T Mobile controversy, an airline tragedy, and a Starbuck's crime story. Too soon?

#70: Red for Ed (or If You Remember, Molly…)

April 16th, 2018

00:0000:00

Gil and Ron are back at Belia's, but without Al as he had birthday obligations. In a twist, Gil takes a seat in the Guest Chair this week. Thankfully he came with an agenda: Phoenix Suns basketball, the return of Roseanne, and the fallacy of Facebook privacy. The gang then explores the Red for Ed movement, Molly Ringwald's latest literary endeavor, and Gil's favorite topic, The Notebook. Hopefully you have plenty of Kleenex...

#69: Uber Judgement Day (or Happy Anniversary)

March 27th, 2018

00:0000:00

The Core Three are back, this time recording at The Funhouse with Belia. E-Steve calls in, not to revoke permission, but to grant it, and in the process gives a shout out to his wife of 16 years and explains how the Chicken Dance ultimately led to Gil, Al, and Belia moving to the Phoenix area. From there the gang talks about the various conspiracies and cabals surrounding the automated Uber gone rogue, whether anyone should disclose their private life for a job, and the concept of paying adult actresses for silence. Hush...
