We’re going medieval on this episode about a mute palace servant whose sole job is to baste the king’s turkey legs. When the queer king can’t (or won’t) produce an heir, the turkey baster is called in to assist—but probably not in the way you’re thinking. It’s a farce of mistaken identities, complete with sex, murder, and a happy ending (*ahem* several, actually).
Hilarious! The imagination and chemistry of these guys is really great. Love this podcast!
We roll the dice on a more serious romance story in this episode. It’s the late 1940s, and a pretty young pip painter at a dice factory catches the eye of the new guy. Unbeknownst to him, she has some serious post-war baggage, and the shadow of her late war hero husband looms over their nascent relationship. Join us as we explore (and poke fun at) gender role stereotypes in post-World War II America.
Things get spooky when we tell scary stories about candy corn around a campfire. In the woods. At night. Despite Emily and Thomas bringing beer and making s’mores, Shep hates the entire experience—the reason why is revealed when he tells his story. But surely there’s nothing lurking in the woods, right?
We take a brief departure from movie plots on this episode, and instead come up with a kid’s book (or “children’s novel” as Shep keeps calling it). Join Raccoon, Bear, Dog, and an ever-growing cast of characters as they try to help Raccoon on his quest to get to the moon. It’s a heartwarming tale of loneliness, friendship, and a junk yard.
