Commentary - Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day is maybe the most inconsequential holiday in the U.S. Maybe the world. Maybe ever. But Harold Ramis's 1993 light fantasy starring Bill Murray is maybe the most quietly profound film ever made (at least according to Matthew)... So we're going to talk over it for your listening pleasure. Along the way, we lean hard into a fan theory, talk about how this event will ruin any future Phil Connors could have, wonder where Andie MacDowell is now, and speculate on what we would do in Phil's unique situation! Feel free to listen on a loop.

If there's a movie you'd like us to comment on next month, hit us up!

As always, a big thanks to show artist Laura Hammond, Bensound.com, everyone involved in the making of Groundhog Day, and you the listener for sticking with us. Have a great week!

Episode 67 - Perchance to Dream

If you think about it, this week's episode is all about dreams... The Worst Adults are living the dream after the greatest outing in storytelling mankind has ever known. They kick off their mail answering with a discussion about dreams. Then they invent a dream sport, get you that dream job, dream of a world where we're open with our in-laws and spoilers only come once a year, and delve into the dreamlike wonder of Netflix! There's also some stuff about bees and homicidal sanitation workers, but if you try hard enough I bet you can dream up a way of making those fit this afterthought of a forced theme too...

Talking Points: 

  • Bear school! (00:00)
  • The blades and the bees! (05:50)
  • Dream analysis! (16:10)

Episode 65 - Thank You For Being a Friend

Remember how easy it used to be to make friends? What happened? How do you even start a friendship as an adult? Matthew and Adam sure don't know, so they're bringing in friendship experts Dr. Elizabeth and Master Adam! Together they learn that screaming can be useful, kids and dogs make decent conversation starters, criminals need friends too, there are only Hufflepuffs and Slytherins in the world, fear can be healthy, and sometimes kidnapping is the only option. By the end of this hour you'll be swimming in friends!

Episode 64 - On Vacation, No One Can Hear Your Furniture Scream

Adam is embracing some R&R, so we're talking about that this week. Because art reflects life. And because after 2016, we all deserve a vacation. Along the way, we debate familiarity vs. variety, expose the lies of vacation, create no less than two hit musicals, commit insurance fraud to keep the good times going, make references the other host won't understand, refuse to imitate other cultures, let Mickey Mouse do the cleaning, and Adam hears guilt-inducing voices from inside his house!

Talking points coming soon!

As always, we'd like to thank Laura Hammond for the art, Bensound.com for the tunes, this week's contributors, and you the listener! You guys are the best! Happy New Year!
