And Maria has taken up a loud hobby of crunching ice. I hope you enjoy meeting me. Again.

My guests are both huge fans of U2. Finally, I found another hard core fan of U2 for regular, returning guest Murray Valeriano to talk to! And that man is comic, host and good guy Damien Fahey. I prove that I don’t know about older music as much as I didn’t know about newer music. I’m sure I make the same mistakes from last episode. Let’s go there…again. When will I learn? Enjoy.

This is a dork expedition to Elliza McGrand’s house where we met with some of her friends: Trina, Jill and Stacy. It might be the girliest dork forest ever! We talked Perfume. Because of the guerilla nature of the expedition the audio is out there. There is some talking over each other and it’s like being at a meth convention. The discussion of science and ounces is intense and very dorky and addictive. I want, now, to smell better. It is great. Enjoy.

My guest is the smartest man in the world, Greg Proops. This is a win, dorks. Ostensibly, it’s old timey baseball. And there’s plenty of Civil War to present baseball talk. But Greg is a man who loves language and nicknames and this is fascinating. A treat for all of us. You’re welcome.
