Can you believe this podcast is one year old? Feels like it's barely been 11 months! All (hilarious) jokes aside, it's been a pretty wild year. We've covered everything from yetis to Marisa Tomei to lightbulbs to the Illuminati to our Hollow Earth to the Build-A-Bear corporation. We've laughed, we've cried, we've sung songs and drank beers. And through it all, we've been really, really lucky to have you as our listeners. So as a fun wrap-up to this tumultuous time in our lives, in this episode Katelyn takes a little time to tell you something new about every episode we've recorded. Sometimes that 'something new' is a recently uncovered fact about an unsolved murder, sometimes it's just an observation that the guest from that old episode is now married. But it's all pretty fun, tbh. Happy listening, happy holidays, and have a wonderful start to your new year!
Okay, we gotta conspiracy theory ova heaaaaah! If you like bad Brooklyn accents and arguments about the importance of comedy in culture, this ep is for you baby. Patrick McDonald came on the podcast for a freewheelin' conversation about classic movies, Hollywood scandals, Oscar-bait, Saturday Night Live, the dangers of alcohol, and lots of cute bimbo impressions. Plus, Katelyn tells a story about her shameful past in the seedy underbelly of LA catering. And after all of that, we finally get to the shocking conspiracy theory that the talented Marisa Tomei won a Best Supporting Actress award erroneously, because Jack Palance was too drunk to see the card and therefore said the wrong name! Dram, if you're listening to this, really sorry and please don't sue.
Ready for some truly dumb dad jokes? This wholesome episode tackles the theory that Ferris Bueller's Day Off, classic 80's teen film, is actually a dark portrait of a deeply disturbed young man who invents a cool imaginary friend with powers he can only dream of. Wow, creepy stuff! Our guest Clara Baker is a big movie buff, and she delivers this wacky theory with a lotta panache and some very expert water drop noises. You're going to come out of this one seeing Cameron pretty dang differently, this we can promise. At the very least you'll agree with us that Alan Ruck has always been a sex symbol. Zamn, zaddy.
Some episodes of this podcast are silly. Some are thoughtful. And sometimes we have to just say to heck with conspiracy theories, it's time for some good goddamn conversation. This one is that third one. The incredibly funny and borderline genius comedian George Barber stopped by for what we thought was going to be a conversation about the loopy little theory that the media is conditioning us to accept fascism and stuff. But actually it turned into two buds talking about the election, the nature of conspiracy theories, what it's like to be working and middle class, American history, and everything that's been on our minds for the last few weeks. It may not be a normal episode of Lizard People, but it's a talk we were all glad to have. We hope you'll be glad too!
